W–Two Worlds: Episode 13

I hope you were really in the mood to have your heart served to you on a platter today, because that’s pretty much the only thing on the menu. You can order it bloody, filleted, or burnt to a crisp. Because who needs a heart anyway? It just gets in the way of things, like plotting the total destruction of all your enemies with mind-bullets. For starters.

 

 
EPISODE 13 RECAP

So it looks like the manhwa world is no longer frozen, even when Kang Chul is outside of it. As Assemblyman Han mulls over his new problem—namely New-Face Killer getting caught by the police—we go back a few days to Kang Chul reading the latest episode of the webtoon out in the real world. Chul saw that the two villains had made contact, and realized he could make something of this. Now we’re talkin’.

The lead prosecutor dealing with Corpse Kang Chul called Assemblyman Han with the news that even in death, Kang Chul was coming after Assemblyman Han: He left a dying letter behind, in which he told the authorities to look into the assemblyman’s phone records.

In the letter to Do-yoon, Chul listed all the things that didn’t make sense, like a murder without context, a mass shooting without motive, a fabricated audio recording. He wrote that he was dying in vain without context, and asked Do-yoon to look into a recent call between New-Face and Assemblyman Han.

Chul wrote for Do-yoon to find the connection between those two men and shed a light on the truth, because he was falsely accused. Assemblyman Han was rattled as he read a copy of the letter, which the prosecutor told him would have to be admitted into evidence despite its ridiculous claims. In the present, Assemblyman Han erases the incriminating audio recording he made of his call with New-Face.

Yeon-joo wondered if Assemblyman Han would kill New-Face over something like that, and Chul said that was how the character was written by her father—a simple-minded, typical villain—and he’d react accordingly, unless a new variable came into play. Well, now you’ve gone and jinxed it.

In the present, New-Face fumes impotently in the police interrogation room, and demands to speak to Assemblyman Han. He threatens to spill everything if anyone tries to kill him in here, and tells them to start looking for Kang Chul, because he’s not dead.

The message reaches the top brass in Assemblyman Han’s political party instantly, though he quickly denies any association with the killer. But Assemblyman Han knows he’s trapped now, because New-Face wasn’t just some random crazy guy. He wonders if he should get rid of New-Face, and calls an old acquaintance on the phone. An assassin, perhaps?

The image morphs into a drawing on Yeon-joo’s computer screen as she reads the latest episode of the webtoon, and she smiles to see that Assemblyman Han is doing exactly as they’d hoped.

Yeon-joo calls Su-bong, who says with a broad smile that the story is all going according to plan. She wants him to check on Dad, and even though he just checked on him ten minutes ago, Su-bong complies and pokes his head in (with a hand over his eyes, ha). Still no face, and Su-bong winces to have to see it again.

Yeon-joo wonders where Chul is, but he calls her first because he’s near the hospital to pick her up after work. She beams and primps in the mirror before running out to meet him.

As Yeon-joo walks down the street, she narrates that hope has made her imagine again, and we see her fantasy version of a happy ending play out: Dad miraculously regains his face, and the true ending of W begins, with Assemblyman Han hiring gangsters to kill New-Face in prison.

Then Do-yoon makes all of Assemblyman Han’s misdeeds public and he’s prosecuted for his crimes. The people regret not having faith in Kang Chul, and though he remains dead in the manhwa world, his honor is restored and people grieve him, and his is no longer at risk of disappearing because he’s a hero.

Chul walks away from his own grave with a smile on his face, and that becomes the final frame of the manhwa. Yeon-joo narrates that Kang Chul then returns to her, and W concludes with a happy ending.

Kang Chul is no longer the protagonist of a manhwa, and no longer bound by the predetermined settings or the fate that comes along with that: “He is just a special person who comes and goes between two worlds.”

Yeon-joo meets Chul outside Dad’s house, and they brace themselves for the big introduction. She leads Chul inside to the kitchen, where Dad lifts his head and just gapes with his mouth full of food.

They smile at Dad awkwardly, and she tries to explain that Chul is going to live in their world now. Dad looks extra annoyed when Chul asks to join them for dinner, and when Su-bong fawns over Kang hyung and sits him down, Dad takes it out on Su-bong and yells at him for chewing too loudly. (I love that Dad is this grouchy, even in Yeon-joo’s fantasy.)

Yeon-joo narrates that there’s no way that Dad would just accept Kang Chul, but she says that someday, he’d eventually understand. Dad drives himself crazy trying to wrap his head around it: “He’s a person. A person. I didn’t draw him…” But everywhere he looks, the manhwa is there as a reminder of the opposite.

Still, Chul wears Dad down in his own way, by suggesting a game of baduk (with the world’s most awkward smile, which only skeeves Dad out more). Of course it backfires when Chul beats him at the game, and Yeon-joo cringes at Chul behind Dad’s back. You didn’t let him win?

Chul manages to woo Dad into another game, and Yeon-joo narrates that time and patience would slowly take care of things.

Then she introduces Chul to Mom and Aunt, and though Mom is cold and standoffish, Aunt fawns over Kang Chul’s looks, squealing that he looks like he could be a manhwa character. Yeon-joo narrates that Mom will be hard to win over, but Aunt will help her out because she’s all about handsome men.

They get to enjoy their sweet, everyday romance on leisurely street dates (where Kang Chul uses his Olympian sharpshooter skills at the arcade, lol), and bicycle rides along the river in matching couple outfits. Kang Chul brings her ice cream and they snuggle as they watch the sunset blissfully.

Crap. That was WAY too good to ever come true. What the hell are we going to do now?!

Back in real life, Yeon-joo arrives to meet Chul for coffee and says she was planning to buy. He argues that he should at least pay for coffee since his wife is currently supporting both of them, and says he might not have money, but he has a conscience.

He’s planning to take a trip to the manhwa world, which worries Yeon-joo. He says he’s curious about how things are going, plus he needs to meet with Do-yoon and take care of his assets, which he’s planning to turn into a foundation devoted to criminal investigation.

Chul says it’s not like he can bring his money here, and when Yeon-joo just nods unenthusiastically, he asks if she has regrets about the money, and teases her for marrying him for his bank account.

He hands her a notebook of the last few things Yeon-joo needs to draw for him, after which he says her work will be done. Among them is an audio recording that they’ll plant in Assemblyman Han’s office, to ensure that he gets sent to prison. Chul thinks that Dad’s face will return tonight, as long as there are no new variables. Yeah, but when has there ever NOT been a new variable?

They’re interrupted when Professor Crazy Dog sees Yeon-joo across the coffee shop and stomps over to declare the big news that as of today, he has gone from W fan to anti-fan. With fists flailing in the air, Crazy Dog wails about the return of poopyhead Oh Yeon-joo in the manhwa, and Kang Chul glances over at Yeon-joo as if to say, I know you said Crazy Dog, but this guy is CRAZY.

Crazy Dog rants that he’s figured it out: “The only person stupider than Oh Yeon-joo is Kang Chul, and the only person stupider than him is ME, who keeps reading this stupid manhwa!” Hahaha.

He declares with vigor that he has thus abandoned W, because it is no longer a work of art, but a piece of garbage. Crazy Dog tells Yeon-joo to go ahead and tell her father every word, and says proudly that he’s not planning to be one of those anonymous, lily-livered antis—no, he’s going to leave a hundred comments, all under the username Professor Park.

Kang Chul finally turns to him and asks if it’s really that bad, because Oh Yeon-joo seems okay to him. Crazy Dog says he doesn’t know anyone named Oh Yeon-joo, real or drawn, whom he’d consider an acceptable woman. He says that this Oh Yeon-joo standing next to them is particularly bad, because she’s the whole crazy-poopy combo.

Yeon-joo tries to drag Crazy Dog away with the promise of coffee before this conversation gets any worse, but then he suddenly turns back to take a good look at Yeon-joo’s “friend,” and asks if they’ve met before because he looks so familiar. Uh-oh.

Chul beats him to the punch and says that he often gets told that he looks like Kang Chul from the manhwa, and Crazy Dog flips out, saying that the resemblance is uncanny. Crazy Dog suggests that he play Kang Chul in the movie adaptation and asks what he does for a living.

Chul hands him a business card… from the manhwa… and then laughs it off like it’s a prank because so many people tell him that he looks like Kang Chul. Thankfully Crazy Dog finds this amusing, and he’s so taken with Chul that Yeon-joo has to pry them apart. She flashes Chul a WTF-face, and he just winks at her.

As Yeon-joo sees Chul off, she tells him to be careful. She makes sure that he’s not going to do anything dangerous on this trip, and he reminds her that he can come and go freely between the two worlds now. She promises to head to the workshop and draw him the things he asked for, and he pets her on the head sweetly before driving off.

Chul drives to the real-world counterpart of the manhwa hotel he lives in, but when he pulls into the driveway, he sees So-hee standing outside on the curb. What the…? She sees him too, and their eyes meet for a brief second.

He keeps driving past her, and they both look utterly shocked. He glances in his rearview mirror and sees her still standing there, so he gets out of the car. But then she’s gone. What, is he in the manhwa world or not?

Kang Chul is thrown and he calls Yeon-joo to confirm that he’s still in the real world. She asks how they’d be talking if he were in the manhwa right now, and he wonders what that was, with So-hee. She asks what’s going on, but he says he doesn’t know and hangs up for now.

Yeon-joo returns to Dad’s workshop and checks on him, and gasps to find her bedroom door unlocked. Aack! Dad is gone, and she calls Su-bong, who swears he locked the door last time. She says she’ll start searching, when suddenly Dad calls out to her as he comes out of his office.

He… has his face? Dad looks normal again, and Yeon-joo greets him with a tearful hug. Oh no, something is very, very wrong.

Meanwhile in the manhwa world, Chul waits up in the penthouse for Do-yoon to arrive, and he instructs Do-yoon to keep this suite so that he has a place to stay whenever he comes back here. Do-yoon asks where he came from, and Chul points upward and says, “From another star?” Ha.

Do-yoon complains about the jokes and says he had to hold Chul’s funeral yesterday, and grouses at having to handle more paperwork as Chul signs over all his assets and leaves him in charge of the foundation. Chul says that Do-yoon is the only person he trusts, but he’s welcome to hire someone else if he wants to retire.

Chul stops cold when Do-yoon asks if he saw So-hee today, and Do-yoon recounts what So-hee told him just downstairs in the lobby. Do-yoon told her that she must be mistaken, but So-hee said she saw Kang Chul drive up, and then the car just disappeared. She said that it was suddenly midday when she saw him, and then it was night again when he was gone.

Chul wonders to himself what this new variable is, and then realizes that as he was pulling up to the hotel, seeing the building made him think of So-hee. At the same time, So-hee happened to be stepping out of the hotel in the manhwa world, and as she went through the revolving door, night turned into day, and she was summoned into the real world.

A new realization settles in and Chul thinks in voiceover, “I am the main character, and I am living in the real world. Therefore, Hypothesis Three: If I think of a main character, a person from the manhwa can be summoned in reverse… into the real world?” He immediately recognizes the problem with this, and wonders aloud, “Is it possible… that I’ve summoned someone without knowing it?” Shitshitshitshit.

Back in the real world, Yeon-joo helps Dad into the kitchen. Aaaah, get away from him! He’s (possibly, probably, almost certainly) NOT YOUR FATHER!

She suggests going to the hospital just to make sure that Dad is really okay, and when he asks what’s happened, she tells him that Kang Chul is living in their world now, and everything in the manhwa is going according to plan, to have Assemblyman Han kill New-Face so that Dad could get his face back.

Dad doesn’t remember anything from the last few days, and Yeon-joo tells him to get some rest first. He asks where Kang Chul is now, and she says that he went to the manhwa world to take care of a few things, and make sure that New-Face was dead. She remembers to call Su-bong and grabs her phone to call with the good news, saying that this whole business with Dad has given him a heart condition. Poor buddy.

But then suddenly Dad’s voice changes as he notes with disappointment that Kang Chul isn’t here. Eeeeeek. The color actually drains out of the shot as Yeon-joo slowly turns around… and New-Face drops the nice Dad act and says he was hoping to kill two birds with one stone here.

Yeon-joo still isn’t sure what’s going on and asks hesitantly, “Dad?” But New-Face pulls off Dad’s glasses and mocks, “Dad? Why am I your dad?” Yeon-joo realizes who it is and staggers backwards, terrified.

Chul gets a terrible feeling and runs out to Do-yoon, who’s at that very moment getting a call from the detective about New-Face. Chul asks if he died, but Do-yoon says incredulously that he escaped.

Flashback to New-Face’s interrogation: He was screaming and clamoring for Assemblyman Han, saying that he needed protection because someone was going to try and kill him in there. The detective got tired of the ranting and went to go shut him up, when suddenly New-Face vanished into thin air.

He reappeared outside the police station in the real world, laughing maniacally at this stroke of luck. He waited in the back of a police car for someone to get in, and strangled an officer to death in order to make his getaway.

Su-bong left the workshop to go consult a doctor about his heart problems, which is when New-Face arrived outside in a policeman’s uniform. He went straight for Dad’s tablet and turned the power on, and immediately Dad sat up in bed, like a siren call.

New-Face found the locked room and kicked the door open, and ordered Dad to come out now. Poor zombie faceless Dad just followed on command, and soon after, New-Face was wearing Dad’s clothes and smiling at his reflection in the mirror. So. Creepy.

Back in the present, New-Face drops the act and says in a chilling voice, “It’s been a long time, Oh Yeon-joo.” He takes out a gun and waves it at her wildly, declaring that she was the problem all along—if it weren’t for her meddling, Kang Chul would be dead and this manhwa would’ve ended ages ago, instead of dragging on senselessly.

He scratches his temple with the butt of his gun and says that he’s read all the recent episodes, and knows how Kang Chul is getting in and out of the manhwa now. He says it’s not really that hard if you just realize the concept, and figures that he could do it too. He yanks Yeon-joo’s head back to look up at him, and asks, “Shall we go together? To find your husband?”

Chul runs out of the penthouse in a panic without explanation, and Do-yoon chases after him, catching the elevator just before the doors close. But Chul has already summoned himself back to the real world, and Do-yoon stands there staring at the empty elevator in shock.

Back in the real world, Chul calls Yeon-joo repeatedly while he drives, but there’s no answer. Dad is seated at his tablet, and at New-Face’s command, he draws a car and a cell phone, which appear in the manhwa.

Meanwhile, Assemblyman Han gets the call from his henchmen, who report that the killer escaped prison before they could get to him. He seethes, but then New-Face calls to yell at him for the attempted hit.

New-Face tells Assemblyman Han that they’re on the same side now, and that Kang Chul is still alive. New-Face demands a hideout to use if Assemblyman Han wants to catch Kang Chul, and then tells Yeon-joo to drive there.

New-Face tells Dad up in the real world to do one more thing: Destroy the tablet, because they won’t be needing it anymore. Noooo! But with no one to stop him, Dad takes a sledgehammer to the tablet over and over, until it’s in pieces.

Su-bong returns from the hospital and nearly has another heart attack when Kang Chul skids to stop in front of him and gets out of the car holding a gun. Chul warns him to stay out here because it might be dangerous, and runs inside.

Yeon-joo’s purse and phone are lying there in the middle of the room, and her bedroom is empty. Chul makes his way into Dad’s office and trains the gun on him. But Dad is just sitting there helplessly at his desk, the tablet already beaten to smithereens.

Chul runs back out and tells Su-bong to go elsewhere, and that New-Face has kidnapped Yeon-joo. That’s all he says before driving off, leaving Su-bong screaming after him, at first calling him hyung, and then “Kang Chul-ah!” Ha.

Chul doesn’t waste time trying to stay hidden and summons himself right into Assemblyman Han’s office, as the assemblyman is ordering his henchmen to watch New-Face but not kill him yet. He’s understandably startled to see Chul back from the dead, but Chul wastes no time and just attacks him and sticks a gun in his face, demanding New-Face’s location.

Assemblyman Han’s assistants are startled to see Kang Chul walk out of there, though they assume he’s just a lookalike. It’s only Assemblyman Han who’s positive that Chul is alive, and he suspects that there’s something else going on between Kang Chul, New-Face, and Yeon-joo that he’s not aware of.

New-Face and Yeon-joo arrive at a warehouse, where he puts a silencer on his gun and says regretfully that he was hoping to shoot her in front of Kang Chul. But this will have to do, he says, since it’s the only way to get Chul here.

He argues that he waited a really long time for Kang Chul to remember her, because it would’ve been meaningless to shoot her when Chul didn’t know she was his wife. But he says that now it’ll be worthwhile, and cocks his gun.

Yeon-joo trembles with fear and begs him to let her live. He pauses at her tears, but he says it’s no use—killing Kang Chul’s family is his reason for existing, and he points out that it’s not like HE told her to put on that wedding band and become the heroine. He asks if she really thought that would go well for her. He raises the gun again…

Chul speeds down the road on his way to Yeon-joo, when suddenly the “To be continued” chyron starts rendering in the distance. He sees it happening, but before he can even react, Kang Chul vanishes into thin air. Nooooooo! Goddamn cliffhangers! Aaargh!

The car gets left behind and Chul reappears in the real world in the middle of the street, and narrowly misses being run over. He checks the webtoon’s newest episode and sees New-Face pointing his gun at Yeon-joo.

At the warehouse, New-Face is distracted by the arrival of Assemblyman Han’s henchmen, and Yeon-joo starts to back away from him slowly. She makes a break for it, but New-Face whirls around and pulls the trigger… and she goes down, shot in the back. Holy crap.

The henchmen bust in and get gunned down for their trouble, and Yeon-joo uses all of her strength to crawl away, leaving a trail of blood behind her. She doesn’t make it very far though, and she collapses to the ground, one last tear escaping as she loses consciousness.

That’s the last frame of the webtoon episode, and Chul trembles with anger to see it. He summons himself back into the manhwa immediately, and gets back in the car right where he left it.

New-Face is waiting for him to arrive, and when Chul sees him sitting in the car up ahead, he floors it and drives forward, toward a head-on collision. New-Face does the same, and the game of chicken ends with a crash as the cars come to a dead stop.

They both whip out their guns and start shooting furiously. Chul takes a hit in the arm, but keeps shooting as he presses the accelerator, pushing the other car as he unleashes a seemingly endless stream of bullets (seriously, where are they coming from?).

New-Face is no match for Kang Chul’s rage, and the villain goes down, riddled with bullets. It’s an ending befitting a hero-villain showdown. A tear rolls down Kang Chul’s cheek as he finally lets himself breathe, and then he runs inside looking for Yeon-joo.

All he finds are the three henchmen and the trail of blood left behind where Yeon-joo crawled away, and Chul nods to himself. Oh, did you summon her back to the real world? But was it in time?

Chul materializes in the warehouse in the real world, where a construction worker is giving a police report about the random bleeding woman he just discovered. Chul is beside himself when he hears that she was barely alive when the man found her, and asks what hospital she was taken to.

The cops take him there and ask if he’s okay because he looks wounded too. Blood trickles down his arm, staining his wedding band. When they ask what his relationship is to the victim, Chul’s voice chokes up with emotion as he answers, “I’m her husband.”

He runs into the emergency room and finds a team of doctors and nurses trying to resuscitate Yeon-joo. They shock her twice with the defibrillator, and Chul begins to cry when he sees her lying there, unresponsive, with blood on her wedding ring.

 
COMMENTS

She’s dead, isn’t she? I KNEW it was too good to be true! That fantasy was just too easy and perfect and sweet. It was a death note, is what that was. What are they going to do now? Can they reverse it all? But does that give us Kang Chul 3.0?? Because I don’t know if I can handle that. And does doing that save Yeon-joo, when she’s a person in the real world? I have a feeling that there’s a loophole in the fact that she’s also the heroine of the manhwa, which means that a reset of some sort will include her. I’m trying to wrap my head around it, but I think this must be the upside of losing her creator-invincibility—she can be hurt in the manhwa world because she’s a main character, but then she should also be able to be brought back in a reset/dream, like any of the other characters. RIGHT? Well this is the hope I’ll be clinging to for the next week, anyway. Because Yeon-joo can’t just stay dead, okay?! That’s enough character-building for one hero, I say.

I’m worried that the problem is genre, actually, because no matter how much Kang Chul and Yeon-joo keep trying to rewrite their story as a romance, events flow naturally into revenge-thriller, and always end up there. Like Crazy Dog always likes to point out, romance is unnatural to W’s world. It’s like a predetermined setting of the world, not the people, and right now they’re not doing enough to manipulate the manhwa on a meta level, to beat it at its own game. The cliffhanger beat was clever on the writer’s part, and it reminded me that Kang Chul was still a slave to narrative rules, no matter how strong his will has become.

He may be able to cross worlds at will, but he is still in every way bound by story logic, character arcs, and even act breaks, which makes me really question whether or not he can become a real boy, like Yeon-joo hoped. Yes, he is flesh and blood, which does make him real in a metaphysical sense. But will he ever be fully autonomous and free of the manhwa framework? I honestly don’t know. Does it matter or not, if Kang Chul has to live the rest of his life fulfilling episodic missions to satisfy his universe’s rules of dramatic tension? I’m starting the get the sense that W is fighting back in order to keep existing, like it’s got a mind of its own. I just have to hold on to the hope that Chul’s way out of this is still self-awareness and free will, and that there IS a way to do it right that doesn’t end with one of our protagonists dead, frozen, or not remembering the other.

My real fear is that there is no way for these two characters to get their romantic happily-ever-after, because every time they fight for their love and get closer to that reality, the consequences get worse and worse. Their matching bloody wedding rings at the end left me with a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach. Does being together defy the laws of nature and is Fate just dead-set against them? I wouldn’t be this nervous if they hadn’t given us such a long, involved fantasy happy ending, but when they went so far as to get Dad’s approval for their marriage in cute ways, I was convinced everything was going to hell. THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS.

HOSHIT HOOOOSHITTT The amount of curses I let out throughout this episode was infinite!

This damn writer! She is seriously taking this to a whole new level of awesomeness (even with the sad turn of events)! What is this??!!! She's been doing twists and turns and just when I thought she's done with them and will start to untwist things to make way for the ending she literally turns 180 and pulls one on us... AGAIN!

I love you Song Jae Jung! I am building you a statue!

I know right !!!
This Show! OMFG!
I know words have been said and there are no more, but damn if it does not make me jump up and down on my bed and make me gasp for air at end of every episode!

I know its not perfect and there are tonal inconsistencies but when its good, its SOOOOO GOOOD. Like freakishly good. Its like orgasm to my story brain/heart. Like storygasm? Does anyone understand what I am saying? Or am I spewing nonsense?

My entire being ends up in daze unable to function for sometime.
For someone who eats up stories in any form and takes a chunk of it with her , this is like the ultimate world colliding. All the rules established, the set up made before this, all comes to play here. When hero and villain are trying to outsmart each other every other minute. And the variables, oh the variables! Am running out of superlatives here! *goes to hunt thesaurus*

I know I know all these words have been said before but seriously for god's sake, I have not seen/read a story in a really long time where I literally have no f**king idea what is gonna happen next!

And I care. So so much about these characters that I am gonna end up following Su Bong to hospital for heart check up!

Show, you are smart, sexy and too sure of yourself that I feel you are almost cocky! You are just standing there watching me flail like a mad women in front of a laptop screen and you smirk at me, I can feel it! You got 3 more hours of making me gasp and blowing my mind. After which you are gonna leave me forever !

Why do you have to leave me so sooooonnnnnnn !!!!! What other show could take me on such a ride and leave me breathless!

The last scene of KC, I think at that moment is when he realises his feeling for YH. It hit him that he love her as KC 2.0, not just the old KC. The pain is good for him even though is so sad because I want him to be the one who is crazy for her. The one who did crazy thing just because of her like YH did for him. Just because of HER.

THIS. After this show, I literally flopped around face down on the bed screaming gibberish to my husband (who watches with me) about how she's really dead, and how it has to come back to the body Yeon Joo found earlier with the ring, and how they're gonna have to reset the entire thing, but maybe, maybe it'll make sense because he will finally have his memories of her back and that is what will make it happy in the end? I don't know how this will work but my braiiiiinnnnn....

The variables Kang Cheol used to his advantage turned against him and were used by the psycho culprit the next day!! I was screaming: "Nooooooo!! it's not supposed to be like that!!" Peopl will take mad dog's anti-fan role if that happen but for me if after all our OTP's and our suffering we don't don't have a happy ending then I'll sent my hospital bells to writer-nim 'cause she's the reason for my heart condition and she has to take responsability for it!!

I expected twists and turns but holy shit.

When KC was "conveniently" summoned into the real world by the chyron I thought he could summon YJ into the real world, but totally didn't think the TBC was due to YJ getting shot. FARRRRRRRK.

This show drives me crazy on so many levels and I can't believe how affected I am by it, especially due to the premise of real vs fabricated worlds colliding.

On a somewhat good note, I really hope that's the end of New-Face.

I know we're not supposed to discuss the previews, but seriously, are we all OYJ when New Face was asking if she really expected a good ending?!

What's worse is that because of the Olympics pre-emption, we have to wait A WHOLE DAMN WEEK for the final episode of W. HOW THE FREAK AM I GOING TO LAST A WHOLE WEEK FOR THE FINAL EPISODE WHEN EVERY EPISODE OF W FEELS LIKE THE FINAL EPISODE!?

I really want to know what's Kang Cheol's plan to save her and I don't think she died for a second or that he was mistaken!! there must be something behind it!! but what is it?!! It was made like that because it was Yeon Joo's dream not reality!! I can't believe the scenes I held on in the worst times for our OTP, looking forward for them as our OTP's to come happiness turned out Yeon Joo's dreams!! NOOOOO!! THAT'S CHEATING!! I don't want any more dreams or I'll loose it!!

With these "variables" KC has theorized, he could control what would happen next by altering SM's monitor and reimagining a new story to achieve his "happy ending." He carefully made a plan to kill himself off in the cartoon (to deal with his vanishing self), catch the killer and throw him in jail so that he could have his happy ending with YJ in the real world. But there's still a hitch, the killer could also teleport at will. So now, it's turning out to be struggle on whose story will prevail, KC's or the killer's. But it seems like we have other variables, the congressman and now even SH, who could unwittingly teleport too. So is the killer really dead? I mean deader than dead? Why does it seem like the congressman is still lording it over at the comic world? He's the new baddie? Man, he was just a support character a few episodes ago.

I know. God, how I missed the early days of W, where we were wondering what the rules were and laughing at Yeon Joo's antics to escape the manhwa. Then there were complaints about how some episodes felt slow. Nek minnit, we get emotionally destroyed.

I seriously cannot wait til W ends so I can just fast forward to all the sweet OTP moments without having to hold onto my heart whilst doing so.

My question is how killer went back to W-world. He said to YJ he read all the comics and knew how KC teleports between the two worlds. I thought only KC has this power ? Or is it anyone with knowledge of the two worlds existence. Apparently, killer kidnapped YJ, when to a common place between R-world and W-world, took YJ with him ???!!!  I think it should be a happy ending or at least hinting of happy ending... (like NINE).

The Killer is self-aware like KC so he figured out that, like KC, he can summon himself into the manhwa and viceversa. He could take YJ with him because he also knows that when a self-aware person (who is a main character in the manwha as well)  thinks of a person from the real world, then that person is teleported/summoned into the comic. The thing is, by this logic, YJ should be able to summon herself as well, because she is the female lead from the manhwa. This wasn't addressed so far, let's see if it's a new variable in the next eps. Also, there are hints that Evil Assembly Man is on the verge of becoming self-aware.

Episode 13 encapsulated the very premise of the manwha. To give the hero a chance to face the killer. What better way to face your sworn enemy than by jumping on a game of deathly chicken with guns-a-blazing. That right there was the perfect way for No-face to end his purpose in the manwha. A well coordinated, well thought of, well directed, well played scene that really captured all the emotions. Its also one darn great PPL for Kia, "You have a 60% chance of surving a rain of bullets when you drive this car."

Yeon-joo on the other hand met a very untimely fate, she being shot was probably the hail mary that No-face needed. He wanted a Kang Chul face-off so desperately he had to resort in taking the hero's girl because what's a better motivator than that? Smart move, No-face. Now that her life is hanging by a thread, I think Kang Chul, OSM and Su-bong must find a way to get her back into the manwha so they can revise the story (again). Clearly, they've rewritten the story one too many times and I really am unsure how they can pull this one off. That's with the premise that Yeon-joo dies in her world.

Let's not forget that Yeon-joo imagining W's ending is fan service to all of us. It was too good to be true, it was too good to begin with. *sighs* I had a bad feeling when she started thinking about the manwha's perfect ending and how well it fit towards her ideal world with Kang Chul. I knew something bad was about to happen. *sighs*

I feel bad for Kang Chul. He's probably guilt ridden as it is. I hope he doesn't go full force on blaming himself for unintentionally summoning No-face to Yeon-joo's world. It sucks that the realization came in too late. I hope there's a silver lining to that. All these variables are becoming such a pain. Han Cheol-ho included.

Well it's not W if there ain't a little bit of crazy. And we did get a lot of crazy from the Professor Crazy Dog himself. He's doing lip service calling out the bad writing once again!! I guess that's as close as he'd get to finding out the truth about W. It was fun to watch his banter and his amazement in noticing Kang Chul. He's a true fan boy and I bet he's gonna keep that business card Kang Chul handed him. Hah. If only he knew the truth. Heh. Was it just me or did Kang Chul feel a little bit happy when he introduced himself as "Kang Chul"? I bet he felt a little bit more "at home".

3 more episode to go and I am really excited on where this show will take us. Fighting!!

It's so crazy that it gets utterly tiring. These 2 have done everything just so they can be together. But it seems like fate is a one-trick-pony that's never by their side.

Everytime someone's life is in peril, they do a coin toss and decide, "Your time to die!", "Don't worry, we'll rewrite the story and save you!" Seriously! How many times do we have to go through that???

Tbh, I think we're in for an ultimate sacriface. That noble idiocy card will finally be put into use. Ugh. I just can't. Can I remain impervious to this?

I have a very bad feeling that no matter what they do, it'll always end up this way, separated. Truth be told, KC and YJ messed up their worlds (not their fault) and now things are being put back in place. It's just that so much stuff happened already and everything's in knots. Like GF, I think they're meant to be, but not meant to be together together... together in spirit and memory perhaps??!! well that's just sad.

Who's likely to roll out the noble idiocy card then? Cause someone's gotta give. It's now a question of who?

0

I understand noble idiocy (correct me if I'm wrong) as something wherein a character sacrifices for the other because s/he assumes that the other person will be happy as a result of the sacrifice. And it often happens even if there are other options, but are not explored by the characters (or the writer for the sake of conflict). Hence, I don't think it will be noble idiocy because KC and YJ have been trying and if there's really no other way, then that's just the way it will be. I have no qualms calling them idiots if they suddenly decide they can't be together even after they fix their worlds.

0

Ditto. But I'm sure both of them will try to outsmart the other as to who will be the better "idiot". I just don't find the idea that one of them should die. Honestly, the person that has been trying is YJ. Poor girl.

my guess it that since they are both originally living in a different world that means they can't be together...KC lives in manhwa world while YJ is living in the real world. KC is just an imaginative creation of YJ's father....my guess

Now that YeonJoo has become a heroine in the manhwa, I fear that everything up to this point will become a dream for her... which would make KangChul's "thanks for remembering me" bit sad in the same way that YeonJoo's one-sided pining made us.

I was waiting for the moment when Crazy Dog would meet KC. A true fanboy indeed. Seok Bum met him twice but never noticed he looked familiar. Always love to hear Crazy Dog's rants. Imagine how he would be if he had been following the story since the beginning. Oh how I feel for those fans (or antis) as a follower of long manga series myself. Too bad he doesn't know the truth but it's still possible. Not like it'll add much to the story but would be amusing to see.

It YJ dead? I suppose it's possible for her father to recreate her by drawing her in the webtoon (assuming she's dead). After all he did had a hand in making her in RL. But will it be the same person with all the memories intact? Better not be a KC thing where she would have to read a manhwa to know what's going on or a throw a fit like Crazy Dog. I guess we just have to patiently wait and see what happens.

Oh wait, your comment gave me an idea for a happy (and slightly sad) ending.

You're right, Dad is partially Yeon-joo's creator and also has slight control over manhwa world. So he can rewrite Yeon-joo to be alive in the manhwa world, even if his real daughter is already dead.

That Yeon-joo can continue living as Chul's wife in the manhwa but she can never cross over worlds again. Dad will be left in the real world drawing the toon as long as he can just to keep his daughter's memory alive.

Omaiigawwwwd~ that's exactly what I was thinking! That would be a great idea if she actually does die - but it's would literally break my heart at the same time. I want them ALL to have a happy ending, dad included because he has gone through a lot even if he was a little psychotic at times... And to just see him having to draw his dead daughter into the manhwa just to keep her *alive* would be so upsetting... and I don't think it'd be healthy for him either. But... If he does draw her into the manhwa, can't KC just summon her to the real world like how he accidentally did with So Hee? That would work, right?!

I think that Kang Cheol already got out of the set up made by Seong Moo, he started making his story by himslf with Yeon Joo's help starting from episode 12!! the problem now is how much his plan will work and how much it will prevent his disappearance since as we saw things turned back to go against him again, with things going worst than it already was, if that's even possible!! and how much it will 
I think that they are both the main leads but W world is still around Kang Cheol!! when the "to be continued" appeared for Kang Chol it was because of his change of feeling: fear, dispair for Yon Joo's safety but Yeon Joo was still there and he summoned himself to W world again when he saw her shot and the "to be contined" beside her when her episode/chapter ended which is a huge cliffhanger and have a huge impact in Kang Cheol's feeling and story!! that's why I still believe that the manhwa has Kang Chul's story as its central.

im really trying to console myself that although Ep 14's preview is not good,there are 3 more episodes. W has consistently suprised me every single episode ranging from surprise sweet scenes or mind blowing plot twists. Writer Song, you had already pulled the rug on us every single episode, the 1 kiss every 2 episodes + sweet couple scenes that last about 5 minutes will never be enough if you kill YJ. Or KC. We deserve a happy ending, with Option 4 at least.

My prediction is that the OTP will be separated as the links between 2 worlds will be cut. with the variable of main characters in the real world being able to summon the W characters at a thought. it's a problem to be solved, if KC wishes to remain in the real world with causing any ripples in both worlds. There needs to be a clear separation between the 2 worlds, no more world-crossing or summoning,  if not there will be chaos even if the killer and the antagonist are dead. so either the choice is made to separate the worlds again for the bigger good, or the choice is made for our OTP because the cosmos decided to balance the scales. either way, we can expect a lot of separation angst. hopefully writer-nim will give us a more satisfying ending than QIMH, where the logic fits and is acceptable. I will need to mull over KC's theories about the 2 worlds. at this time, however, I'm willing to suspend belief to accept a definite HE for our OTP.

Hypothesis 3: he can summon anyone from the manwha to yeon joo's world.

- while driving to the hotel, chul noted that he was thinking of so-hee then. When he saw her by the lobby I'm guessing he inadvertently sent her back.

- the realization came in too late, by that time, he unintentionally summoned no-face which led to the entire yeon joo incident.

And yes, the united colors of benetton coat should be put to rest.

It's like a door where Kang Chul only knows how to open or close. One time, he accidentally opens it and let SH peep into the other side but when he realized it, it immediately closes along with SH. The problem is, that was not the first time KC had accidentally opened the door, he did it with killer and he wasn't aware at that time. By the time he did, the killer already knows how to open and close the door himself without KC's help. ?

It's Temporary Summon. It's the same thing that happened after the dream sequence continuity reset as he kept pulling YJ into the manwha world for just a few minutes at a time when he was lying in bed dreaming with fragments of his memories still running through his head. She didn't need episode chryons to go back, she just blipped there and rebounded.

In retrospect, we should have realized how significant it was that if he just thought fondly of someone from the other world, they could appear.

I see people dissing the show and yeah to an extent the plot is getting rather convoluted...more so than her other 2 work but I am still enjoying the surprises. The killer teleport-ed to Real-World to W-World when KC thought about him. This is the new variable. When KC is in W-world and he thinks about YJ, she goes to W-world. When KC is in R-world and he thinks about SH, she goes to R-world. Same thing with the killer. This new variable was not known before. KC only realized it when he figured out why he saw SH at Hotel entrance. Then he think back and realised he might have accidentally summoned killer into real world by thinking about him.

I know, I felt uneasy watching that part. It was not only because it felt like a bad omen for this episode, but made me think that we are not getting anything remotely similar for the end of the series.
After all we are going through, I am emotionally drained; I don't think I can accept that these two end up separated.
Still my hopes are high, since Kang Chul is such a genius. I hope he manages to save her and finds a way to stay together :D

By the way, I am missing a bit the part of the narrative about Chul's origins. Will we have more surprises? It was hinted that Yeon Yoo was the creator, but nothing more has been discovered related to that. It seems too important to be just "window dressing" stuff. Will this be related to finding an end for W story? Maybe Yeon Yoo is able to draw a new manhwa for Chul... :)

Yeah, I know. After the rollercoaster of this episode I was left with a bad feeling. So much disgraces, it feels like the story is punishing Yeon Yoo and Chul (and us) again and again in order to make them understand that they are not meant to be.
I really want the story to take a different direction next week because it is starting to feel depressing. ?

By the way, could there be the way out this time that they draw all of this as a dream of Yeon Yoo?? I am a bit scared of this idea because this might be something that they use at the very end of the series...I remember that she was sleeping when she was introduced in episode 1....

I Loved today’s episode so much that I decided to write this comment on offline first so that when the recap is posted, I can simply cut and paste.
My commitment and love to this episode now is complete.
Now, I must admit last couple of episodes have felt a wee bit off for me. I love this show a lot. And I love LJS a lot and when I feel few scenes are falling flat or are not exciting me, I get nervous for the drama I love. Because I do not want to be disappointed. So, I was getting slightly apprehensive.

But, this episode is the BEST episode of W so far for me.
KC was in his element, planning for all the variable, figuring stuff out while being his charming self and pranking mad dog.

I loved so many things in this episode that I am looking forward to making multiple comments and wondering if rest of you loved this episode as much as I did.

I get you!

The last two episodes have been best of the show!
Throughout I used to wonder, why does the story keep barging ahead when it could bask in the world it set up and play around with it? Why do they keep introducing new rules and variables?
And it all comes down to head in this episode. Totally upside down!
And I agree with what GF was saying, the genre of manhwa can't be changed. When that to be continued flashed, damn.

And YJ can't be dead ! I wish she is not ! And since we have had our fan service ending in this episode, its not gonna happen again. The finale is gonna break our heart into million pieces !/?

I felt the same way too. Though I still love W and I'm an avid viewer, the impact to me was not the same since EP 6. The impact kept on increasing from EP 1 to 6, but after that it fluctuated. My barometer for this drama is the number of WTF and HOSHIT I exclaim and the number of times I swoon (lol all thanks to LJS). This one right here takes the cake. I love this episode! The feeling of our OTP going against their worlds and the elements and the damn variables are much stronger than ever.

Yes yes exactly.

Its like the sheer number of twists were clearly messing our brains way too much. And when things change every episode, we tend to not trust them - even though we know the writer has a plan, it was just too much information, rules and world building.
And for the past two episodes, we see the fruits of all those set up. Its a literal race against time and a manhwa to save themselves and their love.

The most fun scene was with Mad Dog. I giggled so much with how amused KC looked all the time and how he pranked him and had fun with it and then quietly enjoyed that brief levity by smiling happily while sipping his coffee. That little grin he had made me so happy that he is getting adjusted and has begun to accept whatever it is he thinks this life is and he is making amends. The cheeky KC was back and I felt delighted. Plus, LJS does comedy really well. He facial expressions tend to be on point and fun to watch.

his honesty is admirable, he really love W and analysed the story,
the actor also executed it smoothly,
it's really fun when we have thriller drama but full of fun supporting character ala mad dog, soo bong, seo bon and the aunty...
no one really an ass in YJ real world,

While I know he's harmless, Crazy Dog borderlines on verbal harassment. His spiel about how this Oh Yeon Joo is the worst Oh Yeon Joo of all Oh Yeon Joo's was belittling, especially coming from her supervisor.

i get what you mean, but maybe because he was going about it in a very obviously over the top way i just ended up getting amused instead of irritated lol- besides, KC sorta one-upped him right after lmao

I think I take it more nicely because he said it with over exaggerated expression to her but also mean he actually really observe her, he didn't go spread rumor behind her back ,
they fact that they are so close and her smile is lessen the situation.
It feels like a big bro who couldn't understand how cute his sister is

And he also arranges her blind dates(even if they are with not so great guys), I don't think he seriously dislikes Oh Yeon Joo, so he doesn't try to hide when he is frustrated

If we'd take it seriously then yes, that could be verbal harassment. But Crazy Dog's character is literally crazy, and is there for comic relief. Besides, when YJ's father was shot, we could see that he was not an actual asshat.

Yes , mad dog was literally the only laughter we could have before the writer is about to burn our hearts into crisp.
How many times would we have said his exact comments about a show/ drama before ? Lol.

I wonder how mad dog would feel about this recent chapter? Would it finally move him? I mean we have got inter dimensional thriller here, that has got to satisfy him a bit?? Maybe its because he doesn't like it, all shit is going down ?
Manhwa is run and controlled by the fans ??

If Chul and Yeon-joo ever get married in real world, I hope they choose Crazy Dog as one of their sponsors. Watch him squirm and suffer and eat his words the whole ceremony. XD

I knew those happy predicament is too good to be true!

this is a solid -3 to the end episode and a break to find the way for them to live in the same world,
in my opinion, this drama would have their happy ending in the manhwa/webtoon wordl but not the W-webtoon,
they just gonna live happily there,
my reason is because YJ can hardly be saved in the real world but webtoon world has their own magic and YJ also a character there,
We need to transport her to the webtoon world and heal her there,
let's fixed the magical tablet and prepare to let go anything from the real world Oh Yeon Joo

this episode also give the romance with all the ideal plan in they stayed in the ral world seen to your eyes,
1st I kinda complain, it's like a spoiler and repetition scene since we may see it later but no, there's hardly a hope for that,
we may not saw the scene when KC is brough by YJ to meet his mom and dad, get praise by her aunt,
the bonding moment between dad and KC, it's all a fanservice in a very good way so we can see how another happy ending can happen,
now I freaking love those scene, something so calm and relaxed for everything that we'll went through,

at 1st I hope kangchul scream towards OYJ got shot, then I remember he isn't that kind of person,
reminds me of his breakdown ala KC 1.0,
he needs to see it for real before showinh all of his emotion but those tears and holding back expression kills me than scream, just let it out.. .T.T
I know that action will do better than go down to your knees and crying so he did right but it also painful to saw him looked like holding back the reality

I also like the professor scene and all the funny humor they inserted, gosh the professor in one hell of a character, the writer is genius for having him,
then fan turn anti-fan that welcomed movie adaptation greatly, admit it proff, you love the webtoon so much!!

I think the world can be merge in some identical setting
since the setting is the exact replica, they have the same wave and exist in both world, that means they can resonate to each counterpart and make the small bridge themelves when they need

the other thing I appreciate from this drama is how every character get their chance to show their strength, either it the protagonist or the antagonist,
I actually want to root for the dad whenever I saw him acting so good on screen,

also, who else screaming "it's not your dad !! " to yeon joo?

I sometimes wish Soo Bong was more than comic relief! He could have intervened so many times but instead he is in the hospital or fainted...

He is awesome and all but I'd love for him to be the savior of both worlds in the last 1 or 2 episodes... He deserves as much after having gone through all this stuff!

With Dad being controlled by the Killer and YJ shot, Soo Bong is the one left to take over the drawing. I dunno if the story will head that way, but now we have no one to help out KC but Soo Bong.

It's either the cardiology dept or the psych ward for this guy. Poor Soo Bong. Skip the ramyun and eat Subway instead.

It's flawless how he can make New-face and Oh Seung-moo into such vastly different people. Only a really good actor is capable of that.

yes and you can see the actor is having the time of his life playing such a killer. New face was written to be one dimensional but damn if the actor is not making him so interesting. He believes in his purpose so much even if there is no context or reason there. He is terrifying.

Has he come in any other dramas? I don't remember him in any shows before this one.

Finished the episode. But I'm working early to more so I need to go to sleep. But omo! I knew it was too good to be true. KC there were going to be more variables. Killer figured out the jump. The worlds may be merging or something with Chul being able to bringing Han Sang Hoon and So Hee to the Yeolworld. And now OYJ has been hit. At least they are back in the Yeolworld if that helps any. HSH is coming after them.

I'm glad I was right about the fictional characters not being the same as those who simply live in Manhworld. They all need to gain self-awareness to live their own lives without predetermined purposes in either world. Technically they don't have to be trapped in one of them. They just need their own will and some kind of identification. Manhworld would be easier to live in but may not be the answer.

I'll read the recap in the morning. I look forward to GF's thoughts and everyone's theories.

I think that do yoon and assembly man will also gain self-awareness. do yoon is starting to notice something is off (or maybe so hee too), and so does assembly man. maybe either of them will get summoned into the real world.

I actually fast forward it so I could see what happen and rewatching the scene later....
They way OYJ fall to the ground and try to lived looked really sad and break my heart,
she falls hard and the expression is so sad, she is not crying loudly but I saw the hopelessness,
the girl who don't know what to feel but can't move even an inch or her body
tbh I am impress
