The drama of life is warm and fun

Taking on a unique, webtoon theme, this K-Drama truly opens us up to perspectives and insights into this rarely-touched industry. For some fans who are really into digital art, of course ‘Today’s Webtoon’ makes us understand how complicated it is to be an artist as well as an editor.

People usually just love the job and don’t know the long process and hard work behind it . However, the plot that exposes the rigors of life in the entertainment world is also comparable to how each character develops themselves towards the end of the episode.

Even so, the character development done doesn’t seem to show a significant difference. This makes ‘Today Webtoon’ an overly simplistic K-Drama for some fans. As mentioned in a dialogue in the last episode, the director lets us understand that simple things can also be exceptionally light stories.

However, it is possible that the experience will be different for K-Drama lovers who expect a personality change from Kim Se-jeong. After starring in the romantic drama ‘Business Proposal’, Se-jeong once again plays a cheerful, energetic woman who always carries a positive aura. Because these characteristics have been successfully demonstrated in Shin Ha-ri’s character, the image of On Ma-eum becomes familiar and quite boring.

It is also undeniable that Nam Yoon-su’s role of Goo Jun-yeong is also a bit monotonous and a bit stiff. Until the last episodes, the characters are always confused in making decisions. Only when he learns of the connection between the company and his brother’s death, Jun-yeong begins to dare to act out of the ordinary.

Interesting love story here as a spice to the story

However, that doesn’t mean that K-Drama ‘Today Webtoon’ shows off the romantic spice in every episode. Despite being popular, he is active enough that some people may find it difficult to be around him. What’s interesting is that although the ratings of this K-Drama are not impressive, the director is always on the right track. main genre .

Of course, there will be a lot of viewers looking forward to a sequel to the romance between Ma-eum and the men around her. Since this is a drama with a life aspect, it would be great if the audience wasn’t disappointed that the wait didn’t last long.


Like other life dramas, ‘Today Webtoon’ may not be suitable for some who expect a lot of plot surprises. However, with those flaws, this series really becomes light and very easy to enjoy.

The cinematography of Korean dramas doesn’t seem to be in doubt, as well as scoring can create an atmosphere for fans. Unfortunately, ‘Today Webtoon’ is quite long, in terms of plot, it is not complicated and cumbersome. In fact, a drop of four or two episodes seems to be still possible.
