Kdrama Review: W

Drama: W
Genre: Romantic suspense
Starring: Lee Jong Suk, Han Hyo Joo, 
Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Oh my word you guys! These dramas. I'm just.. I don't know. They are so much fun and so crazy!

Again, I went into this one thinking it was one thing but having it turn out to be something else. I had no idea what the premise was except that the two main characters live in different worlds. But let me just explain. This idea is so cool!

Especially for writers/authors... so listen up all you writer types!!

So we have this guy who is the author of a very famous webtoon called W.  One day he disappears for a time. His daughter comes to the studio to try to see what's up. She is looking at his computer where he draws the comic and suddenly, out reaches a hand and pulls her in!

She finds herself now in the world of the comic, where the main character is dying. Since she is a doctor in training, she saves him of course. The episode of the comic ends and BAM, she is suddenly back in the real world. She looks at the computer again and there on the screen is everything drawn out that just happened. She is now a character in the comic!

Kang Cheol as the main character of the comic series: W

And so it goes. Her father comes back because he too has suddenly been sucked into his comic world. And they discuss this but have no idea what's going on. Thought in reality, the dad has some idea. He's just not going to reveal. She continues to get brought into that world whenever the main dude (Kang Cheol is his name) thinks about her or needs her. Which, as it goes, turns out to be a lot!

He starts to get a clue something strange is going on and basically forces her to tell him the truth. When that happens, his comic world comes to a grinding halt. He is so fuming mad and he wants revenge. So what does he do? He comes into the real world, seeks out the author and nearly kills him!

So, authors, what if your main character comes to find you for revenge for all the crappy and sucky things you've put them through? Would they be wanting to kill you? This main character is furious! But then he calms down, and realizes he probably shouldn't kill the father of the girl he loves.

Because of course that love story... so intense! Oh boy! Can I just say, he is dang cute!

One of my favorite scenes when he is reading up on
how to be romantic.
Oh what the heck, you can just watch it:

But then, things get even more complicated and there's the problem with the villain. Or the real culprit they call him. Who is he? And he is also mad because he too finds out what's going and demands to know why he's never been named or given a face!!! Guys! Villains have feelings too! :)

It's so good. I can't even describe.

Once again I thought it was going to be a cute love story, but it turned out to be one of the more intense and suspenseful dramas I've seen.

And yes, there's that fantasy element going on that makes things a bit cheesy and sometimes unbelievable, but I loved it and thought it was the best idea ever. What would happen if the world and the characters you create come alive and begin to interact with your world? What if? The thought is just so cool and scary!

Anyway. Another one to mark down as awesome. Another actor dude to add to the love list. And on it goes.

I can't find a good trailer, but this is an awesome montage:


  1. Oh dear! This one sounds like a fun and unique idea but I don't know if I could handle the cheesy stuff.

  2. This one sounds like it would be a lot of fun. I'd probably enjoy this one a lot. :)

  3. I've seen bits and pieces of the first few episodes, but haven't found the time to go back and watch it all the way through. Definitely a cool concept though! And the romance...*swoon* Lee Jong Suk is certainly a fab actor! And knows how to make a girl swoon. ;)
