When casting started for MBC fantasy-romance-thriller drama W, it felt so far away and rather nebulous. There might be a bend in the time-space continuum because suddenly the drama is getting a full cast and premiere date is a little over two months away. It’s still plenty of time but this ambitious drama about parallel dimensions suddenly seems real. Starring Lee Jong Seok and Han Hyo Joo, the supporting cast has now been confirmed to include Eugene Jung, Lee Tae Hwan, Lee Si Eun, and Kang Ki Young. Eugene Jung and Lee Tae Hwan play the mysterious male lead Lee Jong Seok’s secretary and bodyguard respectively, while Lee Si Eun and Kang Ki Young will be acting with Han Hyo Joo mostly with her playing a doctor character. There is apparently disappearance and kidnapping to go along with the parallel universe setting, with the production team of Queen In Hyun’s Man and Nine: Nine Times Times Travel behind this drama.
I super excited for the comeback of both Han Hyo Joo and Lee Jong Seok, the visual pretty will be through the roof not to mention both have a solid track record of picking winning dramas that bring in ratings.
