"One of the best dramas of the decade, one of the best I have ever watched." — ichrei, 2017.
W is all I want a drama to be, it delivers everything I can imagine.
Big words, I know. So... everybody knows that modern TV is rather predictable and producers rarely go off the safe path in terms of what they produce and how they write their shows. It is only natural given the laws of economy. Broadcasters want to attract as many viewers as possible, a wide audience that can generate $$$! W is no exception to that rule! What sets W from other shows apart is its non-conventional story progression, it's "almost out of this world". Guys, I don't know, maybe they had no clue that they'd strayed off the safe path and when they realized it was already too late?Maybe this is just one big mistake?
I went into the series not really knowing much, expecting a standard love story — just to get this off my chest, I have absolutely nothing against conventional romantic stories, kyaaa~!!! — with some suspense to keep me tied to my comfy chair. I still vividly remember the moment I realized that this wasn't gonna be another boring show. I felt like I had just been thrown against a hard brick wall. W is a punishment for my things-never-change-with-TV type of thinking.W is a fresh-esque take on modern TV, if I may say so. W really is non-conventional!It's so not predictable! You'll quickly come to realize it's predictably unpredictable!
If you're into suspense/romance, don't even think twice and move it to your watchlist!I would feel absolutely no shame recommending W to people who don't watch dramas. It's an awesome show!
No rly this is da sh11t!!!^ ^ SRLSLY!
Unique story. Love the plot until the 5th episode. The rest for me is just meh. But not saying it's really bad.
Eu gostei muito da serie mas o final poderia ter sido melhor tomara q tenha uma proxima temporada
This series has kept me on the edge of my seat with every single episode. W starts off as any Kdrama would, with the promise of an entertaining love story and a pretty second female lead, funny situations sprinkled here and there, delivered in a sci-fi package. I was really curious to find out how long Oh Yeon Joo could keep the truth hidden from Kang Cheol, who the real murderer of his Kang Cheol's family could be and how this information would influence the comic's storyline and its protagonists' actions. W turned out to be surprisingly original in its plot twists and solutions. I am glad to see the series veered off the standard Kdrama course the way it did (yet kept the romance sizzling, which I did not mind at all ;-) Oh Yeon Joo x Kang Cheol <3).
If you enjoyed The Truman Show and Dramaworld, I am sure you will love W.
