W–Two Worlds: Episode 10

I don’t think this episode will blow anyone’s brain to smithereens, but I guess that’s a good thing? If you happen to enjoy the heroine’s adorable antics as she navigates her way through the manhwa world, though, it’ll be a fun hour. And by fun I mean filled with crimes and misdemeanors, because apparently our girl can’t spend a day inside the manhwa world without doing something that might land her in prison. Some things never change.

 

 
EPISODE 10 RECAP

Rewind to the night that Dad is about to give No-Face Killer a face: Dad starts drawing the issue of the webtoon according to the outline he and Su-bong came up with, and as he’s drawing the big reveal with No-Face coming out of the shower and looking into the mirror, Su-bong interrupts to ask if Dad would like a midnight snack.

After Su-bong shuffles out, Dad calls out to him again to ask him something, but Su-bong is already gone. This is already starting to get creepy…

As Dad reaches for a file of notes to look something up, his copy of Goya’s Saturn Devouring His Son drops to the ground. He picks it up and reads his own message on the back: “Rather than be devoured, I will devour.” He decides then and there to rip it up, but as soon as he does, his drawing tablet glows with an eerie white light.

Dad jumps at the sound of his own voice coming through the tablet: “You’ve finally kept your promise.” It’s not Dad who’s speaking though—it’s No-Face, who will now have to be called New-Face, because I’m literal like that. Now that he’s been given form, New-Face renders himself on a blank page: It’s the same killer who’s been terrorizing Kang Chul, but with Dad’s face.

As the black-and-white outline fades into color, and then into the manhwa world, New-Face looks into the mirror—but also out at Dad in the real world (symbolism!)—and says, “Was this my face? Yes, this was me. I was you. This face suits me well. You wanted to kill Kang Chul too, just like me.” Oh hell, New-Face is scarier than No-Face.

Flashback to the night Dad came into the manhwa world to stab Kang Chul on the roof: Someone was watching the whole time, and as Dad was running away from the scene, No-Face came out and grabbed him by the scruff and Dad turned to him, eyes wide in horror. That’s when they met face-to-no-face for the first time.

Back in the present, New-Face smiles at Dad and says that’s when he knew: “That you and I have the same soul.” He touches his new face and says with satisfaction, “Is that why? I think it fits perfectly.” It’s the way he says it like it’s a new suit that’s extra creepy.

Dad is terrified, and as soon as the glowing light turns off, he scrambles to unplug his tablet. But as soon as he nears the desk, hands pop out from the screen and grab Dad by the collar with a death-grip, and then New-Face emerges to look him in the eye.

Dad screams that he kept his promise, but New-Face knows that Dad is planning to kill him off in the manhwa. He calls that a betrayal and argues that all he’s done until now is follow Dad’s orders.

New-Face declares, “You’re now me. I am you. From now on, YOU follow MY orders!” He yanks Dad into the screen, and then they’re both gone.

Back in the manhwa world, New-Face slicks his hair back and breathes a sigh of relief, looking like a serial killer after a kill. Gack, I’m imagining horrible things like New-Face gauging out Dad’s eyes just before this.

Su-bong returns with a midnight snack, and that’s our cue to brace ourselves, because this is the scene that closed out the last episode. Su-bong finds Dad slumped over at his desk, and when Dad lifts his head, he has no face. Yup, still crazy scary the second time around.

His words pop up in chyrons out of thin air, because he no longer has a mouth, and he calls out to Su-bong to help him because that bastard took his face. Su-bong doesn’t register any of this, of course, because he’s out of his mind screaming for dear life. As Dad ambles toward him blindly, Su-bong passes out.

New-Face calls out to Dad through the tablet and orders him to sit down, and then demands that Dad draw him a gun and a bunch of bullets, because he plans to kill a lot of people. Ack, Dad, don’t do it! But he does, of course. (Seriously though, WHY?!)

And then New-Face takes the gun and bullets and steps out of a portal onto the stage of Kang Chul’s crime show, where he guns down everybody in his path. He turns to the cameras and says that it took Chul so long to find him that he just decided to come out himself: “How do you like my face?”

Kang Chul fumes as the killer promises to see him again soon and then shoots down all the cameras. He leaves the way he came—through a drawing of a door that disappears as soon as he steps through it. And by the time Chul runs to the studio, New-Face is gone and all that’s left behind is a sea of bloody crew members, dead or injured.

Yeon-joo finds this out after the fact from a news report that she sees in the hospital—the one in Kang Chul’s world. She wonders why Dad changed the story to something so gruesome, and why she keeps getting pulled back here when Chul clearly doesn’t remember her.

So-hee pulls Chul aside and says that everyone is freaking out because of the mistaken news story that included him among the victims of the shooting, and tells him to do an interview to put those rumors to rest. So Chul meets a group of reporters down in the lobby, where they ask if this shooter is the same one who killed his family ten years ago, and if this means that Chul was framed.

He intentionally doesn’t confirm or deny, but says that someone will end up having to take responsibility for going after the wrong person and letting a killer run free for ten years. It’s a not-so-veiled jab at Assemblyman Han, who watches the interview on TV and throws a fit, calling Kang Chul a psychopath.

Meanwhile, Yeon-joo continues to help treat the victims in the emergency room, until finally one of the doctors notices that she’s not from this hospital. She quickly says that she must’ve grabbed the wrong lab coat and gives him an update on the patient before running off.

She makes her way into her office (or where it would be in her world), and swaps her lab coat for someone else’s. She spots a stack of juice-box soju on the desk that’s been confiscated from a patient, and goes to the roof to have a drink.

Chul steps out onto the roof and doesn’t see Yeon-joo at first, and she sees him quietly wipe at his tears from a distance. She holds up a hand as if to caress him from where she sits. When he turns around, she’s still looking at him with those longing eyes, and it makes him stop to stare back at her.

He calls her by name and asks if a doctor should be drinking, and she explains that the emergency room isn’t short-staffed anymore and she’s not on call anyway. That seems to suffice, and then he asks, “Can I have a sip?”

He admits that he really needs it right now, so she offers him the soju and tells him he can keep it, taking out a third one from her pocket. Ha, that looks bad. He just thanks her and drinks his, and then starts to feel her staring at him again.

Chul asks why she keeps looking at him that way, and after some prodding, she says quietly, “You look alike.” He asks whom he looks like, and she answers, “My husband.” He realizes that the ring she was chasing the other day that she’s now wearing around her neck must be a wedding ring, and then he heads back down after getting a call from So-hee that Ajusshi is out of surgery.

Yeon-joo watches him until the very last second that the elevator doors close, and drinks away the ache in her heart. She wakes up the next morning in her bunk and asks Seok-bum what time it is, but it’s a woman who enters the room, and someone on the television says that it’s been thirteen hours since the shooting and there are two more victims confirmed dead.

Yeon-joo sits up in bed and quickly lies to the other doctor that she must’ve slept in the wrong bed last night, and scrambles out to the hall. She looks around and wonders why she’s still in the manhwa world, and sneaks back into her office to steal one of the toothbrushes stashed there.

She tiptoes around the hospital trying not to be discovered, and watches Kang Chul from a distance as he gets a report from the detective that the killer disappeared without a trace. She narrates that she didn’t return to her world that day, or the next day, or the next day.

She fills her stomach with free side dishes in the hospital cafeteria—just radishes and kimchi—while trying not to salivate at the people eating rice and soup next to her. She ducks when she sees Kang Chul walk in to have lunch with So-hee and Do-yoon, but he sees her and eyes her curiously before moving on.

Yeon-joo continues narrating that she couldn’t go back home despite the fact that she was now just an extra in this manhwa, who no longer meant anything to the hero. She sneaks back into the residents’ office and finds a slice of leftover cake and eyes it hungrily, but she’s caught by the same doctor who found her sleeping in the bunk. This time she notices that Yeon-joo is wearing her lab coat and asks why she keeps sneaking around here, and Yeon-joo is forced to run away from the hospital.

She sits outside on the curb with nowhere to go and nothing but hunger on her mind, when So-hee arrives with a large entourage. That gives Yeon-joo an idea and she arrives outside of So-hee’s apartment. Lol, are you going to break in and raid her fridge? That’s brilliant, since she can’t sneak into Chul’s penthouse with all that security.

Thankfully So-hee’s lock code is the same and Yeon-joo can get inside. She eagerly goes straight for the fridge and starts a pot of boiling water for ramyun, and then catches a whiff of herself. Pretty ripe by now, I imagine.

She grabs a pair of clothes from So-hee’s closet and digs through her dresser drawers for underwear, and finds something even better: a stash of emergency cash. Yeon-joo feels terrible about taking the money but promises to pay it back.

She’s about to head back out of the bedroom with her loot when suddenly she hears Chul’s voice from out in the hallway, asking So-hee for her lock code. She manages to hide in the closet before he walks in, but agh, she forgot about the pot of boiling water!

Chul comes in to pick up the thing So-hee left behind, but he stops in his tracks when he spots the pot on the stove. Yeon-joo waits until she hears him leaving and then tiptoes back towards the bedroom door… which is exactly what Chul is waiting for.

He kicks the door open and sends Yeon-joo flying onto her stomach, and she hilariously attempts to keep her face hidden from him. It’s no use, of course, and he recognizes her right away. So embarrassing.

Chul texts So-hee a photo of Yeon-joo to ask if she knows this woman, but she says no. With that confirmed, Chul asks why Yeon-joo broke in here, and she finally answers in a shaky voice, “Because I was hungry.”

She says she hasn’t eaten in days, and Chul asks all the logical questions, like why she wouldn’t buy food and why a doctor has no money. She says she’s not a doctor at that hospital—he just assumed she was—and he sends his bodyguard out to call the police.

He’s thrown by her cavalier attitude when he threatens to turn her over to the cops, but Yeon-joo says it’s better there because at least in prison she’ll get meals and have a place to sleep. Damn, it must’ve been a bleak four days.

Chul scoffs that prison isn’t a hotel, but Yeon-joo says she knows since she’s been there many times. She tells him to just turn her over to the police, and then adds, “But before they get here, can I eat some ramyun? The water’s boiling.” HA. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

She puts on her best puppy face and says that she’s just so hungry, and the next thing we know, Chul is cooking her ramyun. Hee. He interrogates her while he cooks, and she says that Oh Yeon-joo is her real name, and she has no home or family. He asks about her husband, but she just stares back at him with pained eyes.

Chul serves up the ramyun and even offers her kimchi, but Yeon-joo can’t even take her first bite because of her bloody lip from the fall in So-hee’s bedroom. He’s not very sympathetic despite having caused the wound, but then he grabs a tube of ointment and dabs it on her lip with his finger.

It startles her, and she stares up at him and tries to say that she’s fine. But when he persists, she finally turns her head away and cries, “Stop it!” She says that this just makes it harder for her to let go and asks angrily why he had to go and touch her.

She says that she’s been trying so hard not to run into him—even when she’s been homeless for over a week, she didn’t go to him for money because she didn’t want to insert herself into his life. She bursts into angry tears and shouts, “So why have you suddenly shown up here, giving me medicine and being nice to me?!”

Chul is completely spun around, since he doesn’t understand why that’s something to get mad about. Yeon-joo holds her ring up and tells him, “This is a wedding ring. But I have no husband. So even if I asked him to come, there’s no one to come for me.” That’s just painful, is what.

Chul doesn’t get it, so Yeon-joo just shouts that her husband disappeared—he didn’t die, they didn’t get divorced, but he just disappeared. “We didn’t even do anything. Just… four sweet things? He did only four things for me and then disappeared. We only got to spend one day together. Funny, huh? He never even told me he loved me. It was always me doing the confessing. And then he was gone,” she says, looking right into Chul’s eyes.

She sniffles back another wave of tears and says that she tried to forget because it was supposed to be a happy ending, except this is no happy ending, and now she doesn’t even know why they parted if things were going to end up like this, or why she’s here if he doesn’t even recognize her.

She bursts into sobs as she says that she wants to go back home but has no way of getting there, and Chul wonders why he can’t understand a thing she’s saying. She tells him that it’s none of his concern and stuffs her face with ramyun while crying.

The police arrive and down in the street, Chul shakes their hands before getting in his car. But Yeon-joo isn’t in the police car as it pulls away…? She’s sitting in Chul’s car, confused as to why he didn’t turn her in. He says that she seems to consider the police more lightly than she considers him, so he felt like he’d be losing somehow if he turned her in. Pfft.

Yeon-joo tells him to stop taking an interest in her, and Chul thinks her word choice strange and says he’s suspicious, not interested. Yeah, that’s how it started the last time you married her. Ajusshi calls and asks Chul to stop by the hospital, so they head back.

The tide turns against Assemblyman Han, and he’s ordered to step down and drop out of the presidential race. He’s not about to go down so easily, but it seems that public opinion is on Chul’s side.

Assemblyman Han screams in frustration in his car, when an unknown caller interrupts his tantrum. It’s New-Face, who says in a taunting voice that he knows exactly what Assemblyman Han is planning to do: He wants to kill him and make it look like a suicide, which is the way we saw it play out in Su-bong and Dad’s original outline.

The question is: How does New-Face know this? Also, it’s weirding me out that New-Face drinks Dad’s preferred brand of scotch.

New-Face says he knows everything that’s about to happen to them, including their pointless deaths, and he calls them the bridesmaids to Kang Chul’s happy ending. New-Face doesn’t see why they should comply, and offers to help make Assemblyman Han the next president. Great, the villains are joining forces?

At the hospital, Chul leaves Yeon-joo in the car with a bodyguard to watch her, and she asks if there’s really no lead on the killer. The bodyguard says it’s true.

New-Face starts barking orders at Dad, and has him type out some dialogue between Chul and his father—an argument about his father meddling in his life. Oh no, is he building evidence for Chul to be the killer like Assemblyman Han was trying to prove ten years ago? The villain is retconning the manhwa now?!

Chul comes up to Ajusshi’s hospital room, and Ajusshi seems distraught as he says that in the all the chaos he didn’t have a chance to check his email until today, and he found that someone had sent him evidence.

Chul perks up, but Ajusshi says it wasn’t about the recent shooting, but about Chul’s family’s shooting ten years ago. It’s an audio file, and Ajusshi plays it for Chul on his phone. Crap, it’s a recording of Chul and his father having the argument that New-Face just had Dad type out.

In the recording, Chul tells his father to mind his own business, and his father yells at him for coming home drunk and hits him. Chul reminds his dad that he said he wouldn’t take being hit anymore, and in a burst of anger, his father disowns him and kicks him out of the house. A shot rings out, and Chul’s mother screams.

Wow, that’s damning. With tears pooling in his eyes, Ajusshi says that he’s never once suspected Chul in the last ten years, but the recording is proof that Chul went home that night that his family died, when he swore that he didn’t.

Chul says that it’s a fabricated recording because he’s never had this conversation, but Ajusshi asks how that’s possible when his parents have been dead for a decade. Chul is shocked that Ajussh suspects him, but Ajusshi says tearfully that he just wants to know the truth. Chul asks who sent him this file because it’s completely fabricated, but before he can even finish asking, a bullet comes out of nowhere and shoots Ajusshi right in the heart. Crud.

He flatlines immediately, and out in the hallway, Ajusshi’s wife and the nurse head towards the room with cops in tow. Inside, Chul panics and tries to wake Ajusshi up, but it’s too late. He looks down at the blood on his hand when suddenly a drawing of a pistol flickers in and out of his hand. Shitshitshitshit.

At first it’s just the outline of a gun, and then his whole arm turns into a manhwa drawing. And then the gun flickers back, finally materializing right there in his bloody hand. This is so bad. Get the hell out of there!

Chul is so stunned that he doesn’t even have a chance to hide the gun before the cops walk into the room, and the only thing he can do is turn the gun on them to make his getaway.

Thankfully for Chul, the cops on duty aren’t very fast, and he manages to fight and run his way down, though one of them manages to shoot him on the stairs, not that it slows him down.

Chul reaches his car outside and pushes his bodyguard aside to take the wheel, and he nearly runs over all the officers surrounding his car… having forgotten that Yeon-joo is still sitting in the backseat.

Do-yoon calls to ask what’s going on, and all Chul says is that it’s all a fabrication and the police can’t solve this, which is why he had to run away. Chul hangs up and then finds that he’s bleeding quite a lot, and Yeon-joo gasps. He says he’ll drop her off somewhere, but she’s more worried about his bullet wound.

After driving a while outside the city, the bleeding in his abdomen gets worse and Yeon-joo shouts for him to pull over so she can drive. He finally stops the car and tells her to just go on her way because getting caught with him will be bad for her, but she tells him that she has nowhere to go.

She orders him out of the car and helps him into the backseat, and as she takes over the wheel, she asks for his wallet so she can go buy medicine. She stops at a neighborhood pharmacy for some supplies, where she sees a news report about Ajusshi’s shooting and Kang Chul’s fugitive status.

Yeon-joo narrates that that’s when she realized that all of Chul and Dad’s plans to get rid of the killer had failed.

Assemblyman Han is just as confused as everyone else when he sees the news that night, and then a prosecutor calls to say that they found evidence that Chul was really his family’s killer. Assemblyman Han sits back with a devilish laugh, as Yeon-joo narrates, “So right now this is a world that moves according to the culprit’s will. A world controlled by the villain.”

Yeon-joo returns to the car and panics when she sees how much blood Chul has lost. She wonders where to go and finds an out-the-way hotel, where she runs in to pay for a room and then wakes Chul up to help him get inside.

They get to the elevator and Yeon-joo tells him not to lift his head because of the security camera overhead, and he just looks at her and asks, “Did we used to know each other? Do you… know me?”

She ignores the question and is saved by the bell when they arrive on their floor, and she gets them inside the room. But in her haste she doesn’t notice that they’ve left drops of blood on the floor outside, and on the door handle.

Yeon-joo gets him onto the bed and treats his wound the best she can with over-the-counter bandages, and he notices her crying as she holds a compress to his stomach. He asks why she’s crying and says he’s not going to die, and she cries, “You won’t die! And who says I’m crying?” as she wipes at her tears.

She guesses that he was framed and that’s why he ran away, and she says that she’ll find a way out of this. But right now she doesn’t know anything and she needs more supplies to treat him properly, and says that’s why she has to get out of here. She asks him to hold on and wait for her just a little while, but Chul has no idea what she means or how she could possibly help him.

The only way she can explain it is: “I’m someone who wants your life to have a happy ending. That way, our parting won’t be in vain.”

Chul stares at her curiously and asks, “Who are you?” She doesn’t answer, but says, “I have to get out of here, so I really hope this works again…”

She leans all the way in so that her face is hovering just above his, and just before she presses her lips to his, one of her tears falls onto his face. She kisses him softly and lingers there for a long beat before pulling away slowly.

He looks up at her, but before he can say anything, she sees “To be continued” being written in the corner and dashes off to the bathroom.

She reappears back in her world and reaches up to touch her lips, and clutches her wedding ring, eyes full of emotion. In the manhwa world, Chul wipes Yeon-joo’s tear off his face and looks at his hand curiously.

 
COMMENTS

This episode was a slowdown in terms of plot, since it takes the full hour for Yeon-joo to catch up and discover that something has gone very wrong in her world. I mean, poor Su-bong is probably still unconscious, for crying out loud! We’ve left him lying there since last Thursday! I’m a little disappointed that we haven’t seen more of Dad in the aftermath of losing his face—it’s kind of the horrifying but maddeningly curious thing that I’ve been waiting all week to see, and I feel like all we did in this episode was fill in some blanks in the past, but not move forward at all in the present, where he suddenly has no face. Seems like a thing to address, no? It does appear that Dad losing his face was probably a punishment inflicted upon him by New-Face, not a direct result of drawing his face on the killer.

At least with Yeon-joo returning to her world in the next episode, we’ll be dealing with the fallout then, but right now I’m so confused about why Dad keeps following New-Face’s orders and drawing whatever he asks for (though I guess now we know that Dad can draw and write blind). Is he just complying out of fear, or is it actually out of his control? Does New-Face know the planned happy ending for Kang Chul because he overheard it, or does he now share a brain with Dad?? Was it literal what he said about them sharing a soul? Because if giving the killer his face also meant giving him access to the creator’s mind… I have no idea how they’d ever defeat him. And if that’s the case, what happens to Dad? The most frightening aspect of this (well, minus the no-face retribution) is that the killer seems to be identifying with Dad so much that he’s decided that they’ve always been the same person all along, and could quite possibly take over Dad’s existence in the real world. The killer already stole his face and his taste in scotch—what next?

It was a little frustrating that it took Yeon-joo so long to figure out that things had gone awry, but this episode was an upswing in terms of emotional development, because while in the past I had always been rooting for the couple, today I really felt that emotional pull when Yeon-joo kept trying to avoid the truth and Chul kept trying to figure out why it felt like he knew her. I found myself hoping at every turn that he’d suddenly remember her, even though he doesn’t have amnesia and there’s no way he’d remember her without her undoing the reset on the manhwa world. It’s just a really good emotional conflict to leave her stranded in Chul’s world when she wants to be there least, and forced to rely on him when it’s taking all of her strength to stay away from him.

While it’s hard to see Yeon-joo go through such pain, I love that she’s not going to curl up and die over her heartbreak, or even hold back from expressing her frustration at Kang Chul despite his complete ignorance on the matter. When push comes to shove, she’ll put her hunger over her embarrassment, and will always jump headlong into danger and put her trust in people. I think it’s pretty clear that she becomes the heroine of this manhwa every time because of who she is, and I like that her character is coming to the forefront as things in Kang Chul’s world go down the toilet. It’s exciting that the hero is on the run, but I worry. Save us, Yeon-joo!

What this episode confirmed for the romance was that all roads will lead them back to each other, no matter how many times they do this. Hell, this might’ve been the hundredth time already. She will always pique his curiosity, he will always help her avoid prison, and she will always save his life. Maybe everything else can be a variable, except for the fact that they’re drawn to one another. Or maybe the one constant is that Yeon-joo will always love him, and that alone will somehow always bring her back to him. Before, their love story seemed to spring out of circumstance—worlds and realities colliding with the two of them at the center. But if it happens a second time in a whole new situation, not because he remembers her but because this is just who they are as people, then it really starts to feel Meant To Be in a cosmic sense. I didn’t think I would enjoy watching them do their romance differently, but this time it’s fraught with emotion that wasn’t there before, and tints everything in the past with a sense of nostalgia. I’m still hoping for a re-reset, mind you, but now I also wouldn’t mind it if they just fell in love for the first time over and over and over again.

It's sad but I have to admit that I just love that our hero's out of loop, while our heroine's the one in the know. On a narrative level, there's so much more that can happen that are far better than if the hero's aware.

Same! I can almost see him going nuts when he sees the new chapter...I really love his charcter...I was cracking so bad when he said last episode that KC loves Sh and Hates YJ! Such a fanboy and a shipper!lmfao!

Lol, true.
Professor crazy dog and Soo Bong are our comic relief.

At first I did not care for either of them that much but now I realize how much we need them! As the episode progresses, everything gets even more knotted and they are the only source of our laughter!

I actually can't wait to see Crazy Dog's reaction xD I keep expecting him to come around, and jump ship and start rooting for Kang Chul&Yeon Joo but it's equally as enjoyable seeing his reactions when he's hating how the manhwa is going. Reminds us fans of ourselves, when writers mess up our favorite shows, or another character gets introduced and the fandom starts getting second lead feels.

Well, we all know Kang Chul can really only have a happy ending with Yeon Joo right? (RIGHT, DRAMA???)

my favorite lines are : You look like someone. / Like who? / My husband.
I like so much that she is not saying: someone I knew, or someone I love,or  my lover, and so on

I think is impossible now for KC not begin to make sense of YJ initial nonsense (nonsense for him) and start to think that maybe he has a wife he dont remember :))
if you see a bullet coming from nowhere and gun showing up in your hand out of the blue, then you can start thinking that this woman you dont know could be someone related to you - after all this wont be the most weird and odd thing that happen to you in the last days!!! - so the "no context" theme will appear again and KC will suspect once more that there is more to his reality than he thinks. 

P.S I thought it was just me, but seeing a few similar comments here and on Tumblr about that elevator scene...yeah, that sexual tension though. It was most pronounced in that scene, but it was also in a lot of other scenes. I can understand it coming from YJ, but I feel like it was also so strong coming off KC, what's up with that?

Yeah it makes you wonder if he's remembering something, like when she was holding him maybe it felt comforting or familiar somehow and he's like, "do we know each other?"

hmmm
attraction was always there between them from the very beginning and it did not go away after the dream rewrite.

I mean here's a girl you've only bumped into once at the hospital and KC just grabs her had and takes her to see a patient, no sorry or anything. Then at the apartment - again you don't just start touching a stranger's lips with no notice. He has little notion of personal space when he's around her. Kind of like it, though - like his body somehow remembers what his mind forgot...

@mary it's definitely LJS giving off some serious pheromones. But can't help wonder if it's intentional, as a character Kang Chul has definitely been interested in Yeon Joo from the get go, he keeps giving her second glances and that was there even at their first meeting after the reset..

And the tension is definitely coming off of him, because Yeon Joo is actively doing everything to avoid seeing him eye to eye or talk to him candidly or even directly. I really wonder if it's intentional or just the chemistry between the actors

Another thing we can agree on? Yeon Joo is a smart girl. I was worried about her when I thought she'd only swiped one box of soju, disappointed when it looked like she had two, and proud when she'd taken at least three.

And speaking of smart - I love this writer. I love that it actually makes sense that after 10 days of skulking round the hospital and living off kimchi, Yeon Joo realized that the place she could easily access was So Hee's apartment using Su Bong's birthday code (which in-manhwa must seem like magic). Change of clothes, food, shower, perfect decision. And it's not completely out of the blue that Kang Chul would end up there either.

Let's also thank the creative genius(es) behind the Soju juice box, because in times like this, everyone needs soju to-go.

I'm still laughing at the very thought of Yeon-joo desperately wanting to pull off some ninja stealth moves while she was frantically trying to hide inside So-hee's apartment when she heard Chul was at the door.

I love how all those played out. Love the soju bit. There were tons of PPL this time compared to other episodes but they all worked (more subtle than other PPL's I've seen) because in our story, our girl was starved. lmao

I think the PPL didn't come as bizarre as other drama because it's actually a product, maybe we just used to see the taped brand, the hide brand logo, the only side box, the glass version of the drink or the added scene for the brand they never eat/mention before, something they wouldn't likely to eat
but
in this drama, they just drink and eat from the sponsor blatantly like everyone in the real world do,
like here's the scene and here's the brand, no censorship, it's a half commercial,

She didn't know she was going back did she? To draw a contingency plan.

Man episode 10 was intense. I need to find the preview discussion. Wherever it is.

Just wanted to mention I felt so sorry for her not eating for so many days. Starving. Yet still keeping the secrets. The saddest thing is when she said her husband never even said he loved her.

Sigh. This Olympic pre-emption really messed up the cliffhangers. This would have been way better as a Thursday cliffhanger.

On the other hand I love this attention to details. So how does one really really survived when dropped into a new country with no money etc. Kdramas seem to drop their heroines into time jumps into a new country, seaside village, country towns and just expect them to be super good at adapting. I enjoy this drama yet at the same time laugh at all the tiny details which are missed in other dramas. The sloppy writing obviously bothers this writer. Considering the attention paid to point out the details which are normally skimmed or badly written in other shows/books etc.

Exactly! It surprises me how many people there are that keep waiting for Kang Chul to "get his memories back" like it's just something that's bound to happen unquestionably! When he doesn't have amnesia to begin with, the memories we're expecting him to remember are things that never happened!!! We literally went back in time and undid all those things, and he's never going to remember those moments with Yeon Joo!

The only consolation we might get is that he'll read the manhwa again and see for himself everything he went through with Yeon Joo. Or he'll see the pictures of them in Yeon Joo'ss room and realize he's the husband who forgot her. I guess they can always make it so that Yeon Joo writes it canon that he remembers his "dream" which he was suppose to have forgotten, but I don't see that happening..

this give me major Naruto's vibe
Yeon Joo said to Kang Chul ; oh don't worry , that plot line is just a filler, not the main story I write for you

I think the ring maybe give some clue since it come from the webtoon, he'll get the clue but not the feeling,
but since YJ give it as a sad dream he can't remember, he might remember it later if the narrative asked for it,
maybe when YJ asked for something he needs to remember during the dream period,
some phenomenon when YJ isn't around or when the killer-dad asked him to remember those moment,
it can trigger him to remember "the dream" because another important character asked for that reference,

But it doesn't seem to click. I still want him to totally fanboy over Kang Chul though!!! And to see OTP masking on each other ?

I just don't want that each reset will be taken as a dream. That sucks to be Kang Chul for him to have glimmers of what went down and not understanding any of it. It also sucks to be Yeon Joo because she's reliving all the nightmares and those sweet moments on her own. While she can tell Soo-Bong and OSM, apparently one has been in a constant state of shock and the other reeks of alcohol; So really, who can sympathize with her??

1) deja vu. does that mean we will get a scene when KC shoots YJ again?

2) while people were speculating that the real killer is KC's alter-ego, it turns out he's OSM's alter-ego.

3) the real killer can only teleport within the W universe, he is unable to teleport to the Real World without physically going through the tablet, I think. his super powers only exist because he now has control of OSM. we have to keep OSM away from the drawing tablet

4) KC and YJ on the run technically is Option 2 since they are "traveling" in the rural areas, trying to evade the authorities. Kdrama OTP usually elope to the countryside whenever they hit a hurdle.

5) bracing myself for heartbreak ep 15. but there should be at least an episode with some or lots of sweetness before the heartbreak, as per writer-nim's general style.

6) will we get to see Crazy Dog's reactions to the latest development in the W manhwa?

7) I'm afraid that KC's first impression of YJ will always be that this girl is craziest b**tch in town.

It would be so bittersweet if KC ended up doing more of those sweet things for YJ even now that he does not recognize her (and YJ's only the one that checks off the list in her mind /cries). There's a big possibility that that's exactly where we are headed judging from the pictures of shooting scenes of upcoming episodes. Well damn, there goes my poor heart.

Oh that's such a good point and these little momenta make this show's narrative progression so much more achingly romantic the second time around.

I agree with girlfriday that the romance the first time around seemed to depend heavily on circumstance and chemistry. This time it feels like the beginning of something deeper and more real.

I think the kiss in this episode is the first open eyed drama kiss that I actually found heartfelt and moving.

In my head, when I read "Help us Soo Bong", my brain finished with "you're our only hope." This made me think of R2D2 more than Obi Wan though.

He's a rank and file who doesn't get any respect, yet he's the one that is pivotal to helping things happen. He's also the only one in the who fully understands what's really going on. His reactions to certain situations are what we're all feeling.

So if R2D2 gets to ride along when they destroy the Death Star, does that mean that eventually Soo Bong will end in on the W side?

My assumption is that Dad and No-Face killer switched places. So like how No-Face was able to shoot without having eyes, Dad can draw even though he can't see. And the reason why Dad has to draw what No-Face tells him is because now that they've switched places, he has to follow No-Face's orders now, just as No-Face once had to follow all of Dad's orders. Dad is now a character in the manhwa who's only basis of existence is to follow No-Face's orders which means he can accomplish ridiculous feats like drawing without a face, just like No-Face was able to shoot even though he couldn't see.

thanks okdramas that's the best explanation I've heard yet!

Now that you mention it, it's unfair to complain about the writer drawing without a face when the killer clearly went about shooting with deadly accuracy without one too xD
So that supernatural ability does seem to sort of be built into W the manhwa's premise (when the writer first made the unfeasible villain without an identity).
And I guess the killer could have switched controls and be using him now as a puppet the way dad used him before. Gah so now the killer is essentially dad! because no other character in the manhwa could fit being him!
What an odd nod to Greek tragedy.

I guess it can all be explained as two parallel worlds, or even reveal Oh yeon joo's world to be an equally fictional one surrounding the protagonist Oh yeon joo, but this time in the drama W Two worlds - and we the audience this time will be left gasping as she realizes her own fandom. And Kang Chul will realise he's a character in a manhwa within a drama and probably lose his mind... and then we'll realise we're all living in a story universe too and we don't even know who the protagonist is...
The meta possibilities boggle the mind @[email protected]

As much as I wish she would do that and self referential herself as the writer-God and us, fans - I feel that would be too easy of a explanation by this point. It would feel like a cop out and you can answer everything by saying its a plot hole created on purpose for story when its A actual plot hole.

I would want the writer to be confined in this two worlds - and give an answer that makes sense and addresses all loose ends. I believe she can do that, I am sure she has the ending in her mind and I hope the execution, direction, acting all lives up to it(which it already has) - And I hope the live shoot schedules would not affect any of this!

In the end, it says W- two worlds not W - Worlds. Fingers crossed!

I think it's the same with the culprit. The culprit doesn't have a face but he has senses. He could see, speak, breath, all of it. It's like just because he doesn't have a face doesn't mean he lost all his senses.

b. How can the killer know the plot that OSM “supposed to be” draw? OSM hasn’t draw the plot when the killer been captured and killed by the prosecutor right?

When Killer-dad got his face he told dad something like "I'm you and you are me", so maybe in some weird way they now have one mind? To check my theory we have to simply see how killer dad would react meeting Oh Yeon Joo, if he will say something which only dad knows then I might be right.

oooh. Was just thinking that even tho OSM/villain are like a coin sides OSM made a huge mistake by giving the villain his face and essentially his identity because OSM actually made him himself because of KC seeing him stab him on the roof. Giving the villain the ability to control OSM as an extension of himself.. Say because the villain already had these powers of making plot holes to escape he is otherworldly...oy this is getting crazy. The manhwa is supposed to be "normal" like reality no superheros here with special powers but him. OSM unintentionally gave him a superpower with his bad writing. So this might be why the villain was able to gain control of OSM because he isn't a "normal human character"...

honestly to me i always felt like the killer was born out of OSM's own internal darkness. remember when he first wrote those scenes he wasnt in a good place mentally/emotoinally. and its not uncommon for writers to do this. the killer is right in that he and dad DO share various traits. but irl dad isnt a sharp shooting murderer, and his attempting to stab chul was done in a state of near madness rather than being his modus operandi. dad in giving the killer his face, made something that was always subtext, into text...text. Basically, idt OSM can do anything atm (he's obv the killer's puppet now) but perhaps soo bong and yeon joo CAN. im more curious as to whether the killer can supersede osm's will to the point that osm wont be able to protect his daughter from killer's deadly clutches. hmmm.

Yes! OSM has to learn how to rebel against the Killer Face Stealer just like how KC rebelled against him. And it makes sense that YJ being threatened would be the catalyst needed to trigger him to rebel.

I have also always felt that. Usually the characters are somehow the manifestation of the writers - the darkest part of oneself, the part they always hide - it comes out in writing.

Remember when KC was about to shoot him, he said he is the monster when he saw a living person in pool of blood and yet decided to kill him? He might always the be the monster from start.

But what I really want to know is how did the comic book even come alive in first place? I know we are all caught up inside the two worlds and being mind blow every episode.

KC being born out of love from YJ and New-Face being born out of hatred/murder from OSM - even though it makes total sense in a way I just dont think that alone suffices as a explanation. They are not the only writers/artists who love their creations.

There is something that happened between YJ and OSM in past, something they encountered or went through which has set in motion this whole thing.

I think that OSM's one hope for getting control of his own mind again is his love for his daughter. We know they haven't been close ("And I know him better than you!" shouts Soo Bong). But that scene when Dad came back from NZ and went to see YJ sleeping, saw her ring, read the note from KC--you could tell that he loved his daughter and was really, really worried about her. KC says, you'll make a happy ending for your daughter's sake. And OSM does seem to change at that point. He no longer wants to get rid of KC, he's trying to make the best conclusion for KC and to keep YJ from harm. So I think that even if New Face is controlling his mind, there's that blind spot that New Face can't understand. It will be interesting to see what happens when/if New Face orders dad to kill YJ.

i like what you're saying! imo the biggest difference between dad and face stealing killer, is that dad loves his daughter, even at his darkest he still did love her. so ultimately taht could be the thing that allows dad to fully sever himself from the killer, and show the killer that hey no you are NOT the same. not really no.

@divyrus and @michykdrama

i think that dad rebeling against the killer, and YJ/KC saving the day, will come down to love. as sappy as that sounds. ultimately the killer is something born of hate/rage whereas KC was born of love, and YJ even in her darkest moments is someone with a real heroic spirit. she IS the heroine of the manhwa cuz of who she is whether she realizes it yet or not. and yeah its love for her that will allow dad and KC to really fight against and even win! against killer supervillain (and the politician guy).
As for WHY the manhwa came to life, idk tbh and i'm ok if its never fully explained lol. not everything CAN or needs to be explained. its good if it is, but im ok if its not. so long as everything else is explained and well done.

This episode was amazing!! I love how they're basically restarting their relationship in a similar fashion as before, but different. KC still has the same curiosity now at this point that he had before so he's slowly going to start trying to figure out who she is! I'm very interested to see how it plays out this time!

And I'm still trying to figure out how the whole killer-dad relationship works. Did the dad basically just become the killer and his "real life" form became some emotionless robot? So the dad now has become the killer and a main character of the story? They're the same person? I don't know!!! Haha

I cannot wait for tomorrow's episode! This show is so daebak!! I am never able to predict what is about to happen next, but when it does, I love it!! ?? This is always such a roller coaster of emotions!
