Cardiothoracic surgeon Oh Yeon Joo’s father mysteriously went missing while writing the last chapter of his webtoon “W”. Yeon Joo goes to his office and is shocked to see a scene of a bloodied Kang Cheol, the main character of W, on her father’s monitor. While reading something left behind by her father, a hand from the monitor pulled her in. She found herself on the rooftop of a building, next toman lying down in blood. She manages to save him and realizes that the person she saved was Kang Cheol. She then found out that she can only enter and leave the webtoon based on Kang Cheol’s change in feelings.

Aaaaah, this show was so freaking addictive!! The plot sounded pretty intriguing, so I didn’t hesitate much before starting this drama and excepting a few things, ooooh it was so damn good!

Oh Yeon Joo’s (Han Hyo-Joo) father is a webtoon artist and when he goes missing before the last episode of W is published, she becomes worried before landing in the webtoon herself where she realises that everything inside the webtoon is as real as her own world. There she meets the injured Kang Chul (Lee Jong-Suk), the lead protagonist of the webtoon and manages to save him in time. After this incident, her life becomes intertwined with the webtoon’s and she finds herself falling for a fictional character (Isn’t this relatable guys? XD). But the unmasked villain who has always caused Kang Chul trouble is back and he wants to see him dead no matter what. When the line between the real world and the webtoon blurs, they have to come up with a solution before everyone they love falls in danger.

First of all, Lee Jong-Suk is so freeeeaking cute! Omo! Why oh why? XD They were both pretty cute though.

As I previously said, the plot was addictive and refreshing and unpredictable as hell! Oh Yeon Joo ends up in the world of webtoon created by her father but soon enough she finds out she can only leave based on Kang Chul’s feelings. The plot was crafted well enough but the timeline was sometimes too confusing to keep up, it could have more awesome if the timeline was paid a little more attention.

The characters grabbed my attention from the very beginning. Kang Chul is a character who is pretty perfect, he is rich, handsome and purely good at heart. kind of like two-dimensional as the lines that were drawn to create him which is contrasting because he is a human being after all yet he is still fascinating. The reason given behind this felt justified when he gave his new theory but then I again kind of got confused because the plot took a different direction again.

Anyway, Oh Yeon Joo was a pretty great character. I definitely enjoyed how she handled things but sometimes her actions were too funny!

Like random I love yous to get out of that place! XD

I absolutely adored Kang Chul and Oh Yeon Joo together! Though they two develop feelings for each other pretty quickly, I still enjoyed the romance.

Aaaah, this scene was an absolute perfection. ❤

But after the timeline changed, I struggled to understand the fact that how Kang Chul decided to remain faithful to Oh Yeon Joo because everything was back to square one but his feelings were still there? I mean, the first time I loved it, but the 2nd time we were not much given a reason for the romance to rekindle, especially from Kang Chul’s part but oh well, I still loved those two together! These were two few issues I had with this show other it could definitely have been a 5 star one.

The villain was one of the most interesting aspects of this show. He was the one responsible for destroying Kang Chul’s family and sending him off to jail and he’s back once again to finish what he couldn’t all those years ago. Oh Yeon Joo’s father created the villain without a face and after he gives him one thing get seriously messy. Like helly messy!! Oh Yeon Joo’s father, portrayed by Kim Eui-Sung did an awesome job executing the duality in his character. Once again, the ending was bittersweet. I was seriously worried things were not going to go the way I wanted.

Me too! *ahem!*

Anyway, this was pretty heart-breaking. And I did break down at one point where things were cut off so abruptly but everything wrapped up pretty well in the end.

Overall, W was an intriguing show. The plot and the characters were interesting and addictive enough to keep me glued to the screen despite the obvious flaws but other than that fact it was pretty enjoyable.

Recommend it?


So guys, have you watched this show yet? If yes, what are your favourite things about it? Also, recommend me a few more K-dramas if you have them in your bucket?!

  2. Hi Poulami!

    I’m glad you’re still writing Asian drama reviews. I watched half of W and really liked it as well. Lee Jong Suk and Han Hyo Joo make such a lovable and beautiful couple. (Actually, HHJ is the prettiest Korean actress in my opinion. She was utterly fantastic in Always with So Ji Sub. That movie made me cry buckets but in a good way. It’s my all time favorite Korean movie and I would recommend if you haven’t watched it.)

    Anyhow, I am so pleased that you enjoyed this one so much! (I remember flailing a lot during the romantic scenes as well, aha.)
