Good Morning, Monday!

Morning sunlight, though not the first ray.  A rare occasion to wake up early and feel fresh with the help of steamy cuppa.

W (Two Worlds)

Spent 3 nights chasing down Korean drama W - Two Worlds.  Unexpectedly captivating, especially for someone who is a manga fan.

It is a is a fantasy romance about a man Kang Chul (Lee Jong Suk) and woman Yeon Joo (Han Hyo Joo) living in different worlds. Yeon Joo is a surgeon living in the real world, and her father is the author of the popular webtoon W. And Kang Chul is the main character of that comic. Things become complicated when Yeon Joo’s father decides to kill off Kang Chul and Yeon Joo gets pulled into the comic world and comes face to face with it’s hero.
This is when and where Yeon Joo was being pulled into the comic world .....
I love the whole concept of the “character” having to learn he’s from a work of fiction. It’s unbelievable and devastating for the person involved. And Kang Chul is the one at the center of that identity crisis.

I totally love the artwork used throughout the drama for the W comic. It is gorgeous, and a lot of attention went into the details. It was really fascinating to see the characters switch between the real world and comic world and getting to see what the scenes look like in the actual comic.

These are the cover designs of the fictional comic W in the drama.

Yeon Joo was 'introduced' in the comic on vol 34.
Also the only volume that managed to slip through the comic world and eventually landed on Kang Chul's hand by chance.  Kang Chul started to understand what had happened after his memory lost.

The final volume.

Our dinner before the movie - Oglio Olio, Char Siew Fries, Roasted chicken with Risotto, Blueberry Banana Smoothie and Thai Tea Milkshake. Yummy.
