Korean Drama: W (W、더블유)
Leads: Lee Jong Seok & Han Hyo Joo
Slaving away as a second year resident at the hospital, our heroine Oh Yeon Joo (Han Hyo Joo) is concerned when her father suddenly goes missing right before his famous webtoon is about to wrap up its 10 year run.
Waking up to find herself on the rooftop of a hotel, Yeon Joo doesn't have time to figure out what happened but snaps into action when she sees a man completed covered in blood laying a short distance away from her.
Ninja's First Impression:I am IN LOVE! My inner geek is jumping up and down with glee! The show pulls you right in as it goes through the hero's tragic background of being blamed by his whole family's murder. It isn't until when the heroine gets pulled into the manhwa that we realize that the hero was a webtoon character all a long. What a brilliant premise! As one who grew up reading stacks of comic book, this show is just a geeky girl's dream.
It's probably really dangerous to be this excited about a drama so early in the game, but what can I do when the first two episodes were almost perfection all around. I had wondered if Lee Jong Seok and Han Hyo Joo would have good chemistry together and happily the answer is a big yes. Okay, I am starting to sound like a rabid fan so I will just stop and cross my fingers that the show will live up my very high expectation.
