First stills for fantasy youth romance A Day Found by Chance

New stills have been released for MBC’s upcoming A Day Found by Chance, featuring lead actor Kim Hye-yoon (SKY Castle).

The drama’s story center around Kim Hye-yoon’s character, Eun Dan-oh, who is described as bright and cheerful, and is the only child in a well-off family. By all appearances, she is just a normal high school girl living a normal life. But one day, she starts to notice strange things in her surroundings and her new self-awareness awakens her to the truth that she is not a real person. She’s shocked to discover that she is actually a comic book character. With this new realization, she rebels against the path that was predestined for her, and she chooses to take ownership over her life and find her own true love.

Mixed up into the heroine’s new journey are SF9’s Kim Ro-woon (Fox Bride Star) playing a mysterious character nicknamed “Number 13”, and Lee Jae-wook (Search Query: WWW) who plays Eun Dan-oh’s fiancé.

In the newly released photos, Kim Hye-yoon is shown dressed in her character’s school uniform. And, although there’s not much to go by, the character appears to be paying close attention to everything in her surroundings.

Directing for A Day Found by Chance will be headed by PD Kim Sang-hyub (The King Loves) and co-writing the scripts are In Ji-hye and Song Ha-young.

MBC’s upcoming fantasy drama, A Day Found by Chance, is currently set to air in September, and will be broadcasting Wednesdays and Thursdays.

What?! WHAT! That twist. O__O I was expecting anything but that... (I guess I'm watching too many psychopath-high-school-student dramas lately.)

What twist are you talking about? Here being in a comic, that is more precise, wait for the twists to come and introduction of the main lead, it has full makjang cliche potential, I hope it will be done as well as Money flower, else I will be bitter, I can't watch my our puppy's drama being not good.

Sounds good though. It's not like the older drama has a monopoly over the idea. I look forward to this, especially because Kim Jae-wook is a phenomenal actor and it'll be great to see him take the lead role.

I call this drama W x Makjang because there is more summary about somewhere on internet and I need to find its manhwa to read....
I think LJW is in a negative lead role, I am ready for it!!!

W is the only show I keep rewatching strictly BECAUSE it is waaaay over-the-top. I love that it takes everything to the extremes and beyond. Some people will tell you it goes downhill in the latter half, but I like it even more!

I usually don't enjoy "over the top" plots or twists or arguments that don't deserve or even won't serve the story (generally speaking), and I hate nonsensical.... Of course, I have to put up with it for the sake of a cute OTP or the fun and sorrows of characters I already love, but it is upsetting many times.
Now, @sukstan's argument, to watch lee jeong suk's face for 16 hours straight makes sense 😅😅😅😂😂😂😂
I will think about it.
Thank you all guys, for sharing insights with me!!!

I NEVER enjoy over-the-top shows. They bore me very quickly. But W reminded me of childhood fantasies and made-up stories. It was quite fun for me.

1

The thing with "W" is that it frustrates me because it came so close to being a perfect drama, but then the storyline just fell-apart and was all over the place. The thrills however and the romance/chemistry (despite the lackluster kisses, besides the kiss in ep 7 which was a great kiss), were memorable despite all the flaws.

However I don't want to put myself through another "W", and this show is also set in a high-school which makes the setting less appealing to me.

Well this won't be another W cos it has a different writer (fortunately) but it could still suffer a similar fate what with the type of things the plot will inevitably have to deal with.
But a major flaw in W is just that the writer is a joke so.

1

I didn't think the story fell apart but I do agree the the ending was strangely lackluster.

I thought I was the only one who didn't really like high school dramas.

2

@javinne I might be in the minority but I loved W through and through. Maybe a little crazy, but it was so daring, you have to respect it. PS: Skip the last 5 minutes.

LOVED W as well. It's in my top 3 dramas with Signal and Liar Game so nope sorry. The end left a little to be desired but it was a great show when it lasted. I just don't get the hate.

Acting-wise, it is a pretty solid cast. Rowoon is one of more solid idol actors around. I particulary was impressed with him in Where Stars Land.

I think the part the most interesting is that she is a minor role in the story and she's sick, so it's why she wants to take ownership over her life.

I'm really excited for this drama, Kim Hye Yoon was so great in Sky Castle! Her 160cm height between Lee Jae Wook (187cm) and Rowoon (190cm) will be cute to see.

I'm looking forward to this. I like the webtoon, but it's still ongoing, so there's no ending yet. I guess that gives the writers a lot of freedom here...

NO HARU AND BAEK KYUNG YET (LEE JAE-WOOK) BUT WE'VE GOT DANOH HERE SO I'M SO HAPPY.

Kim Hye-yoon fits her character so well. I am excited to see this drama NOW.

And for those curious why Rowoon is called Number 13, it is because that is just his number in class HAHA

I'm also wondering if they changed the plot or something because they did not use the original synopsis in the webtoon where her role in the world she lives in was revealed...

what was interesting in the webtoon is that she isn't the main character but an EXTRA and that her destiny is already predetermined so I am wondering if they changed that here.

I hope so! I want them to keep that because in the webtoon, it was really fun how Danoh uses and breaks the rules to do the things she wants in their universe! And I want to see her shock when she finds out her role in this drama. HAHA

You would get to address a lot of fun things within writing and philosophy if one handled that synopsis correctly.
Of course my cynic is like *and the margin for error is HUGE*

The premise bears some resemblance to W - Two Worlds. I wonder how simulacrum world of the comic book will relate to the real world. Perhaps Number 13 is from the real world?

Also, I can already tell that this show will be really difficult to watch because I wont know which lead to cheer for! Do I cheer for my SF9 bias or the man who stole all of our hearts as Seol Ji-hwan? I can already feel the tension. 😩

i started reading the webtoon back when the drama was first announced and it's really good and worth the read, though i'm a bit apprehensive because the webtoon hasn't finished yet and there's only enough content for say.. 8 episodes? i'm really nervous about how the writer will take over from where the webtoon has stopped...

spoilers ahead for the webtoon
that saying the characters having self-awareness that they are characters from a webtoon makes for some fun moments like when do-hwa thanking the writers for allowing him to have a romantic moment with joo-da,

i also wonder if they will show readers adding their comments to the webtoon, it's these things that make the premise really fun and interesting

I read the web comic for it & it's really interesting, & sadder than you would think. I'm curious how they're going to end the show, because they'll have to come up with an ending for the story.

Simulation Theory.
What an interesting topic these days. Speculation that we, as the world, is just a simulation from some other universe, is really popular in science. But, there are also talks that if we keep questioning or reacting to that opinion, the simulators might shut the world down.
I’ll definitely watch this when it comes out.
