The first stills are out for SBS July 2022 Fri-Sat drama Today’s Webtoon, adapted from the Japanese manga Juhan Shuttai which was turned into J-dorama Sleeeper Hit. Starring Kim Se Jung, Nam Yoon Soo, and Daniel Choi, it centers around the workplace of a webtoon publisher and deals with the growth of the characters through the tribulations of publishing a successful webtoon and keeping it going. I don’t know if the K-version will try to shoehorn any romance as most J-dorama workplace stories don’t have it or it’s on the periphery. The time slot is also looking good for this drama as currently airing Why Her (Why Oh Soo Jae) remains in the 8%-9% ratings but also ranks high on the weekly online buzz and chatter tracker.

Though im not a fan of remakes especially japanese ones but fan taken videos pf sejeong with choi daniel looks interesting and nam yoon su has been liking alot of sejeongs instagram posts of late. Its such a cute dynamic and will definitely tune in just to watch the cast chemistry. The addition of a host of strong supporting actors and actresses has also raised my anticipation for the drama. Heres hoping the writing holds up…
