Lifestyle: What if Rio cancels Korean ‘W’ drama?
Episodes 7 and 8 of the new and super-hit Korean drama series “W” may or may not air this week on MBC. But “W” fans are in for a treat, sooner or later.
Photographs of the lead pair in the drama released this week to tease the viewers show something rather interesting.
Yibada published a still image that shows Kang Chul (played by Lee Jong-suk) and Oh Yeon-joo (Han Hyo-joo) close to each other as if they are about to kiss. It also hinted at a possible marriage between them, a report said. Speculations are rife that Kang Chul and Oh Yeon-joo would get married in the upcoming episodes.
MBC had announced last week that Episodes 7 and 8 scheduled for August 10 and 11, respectively, may be cancelled and rescheduled due to the Rio Olympics. MBC made the announcement through the official homepage of “W” that the episodes may air normally or be cancelled. But the announcement triggered a flood of posts opposing the possible cancellation on the audience notice board of the site. Soompi reported that such cancellations may hit the ratings and the story flow. “W” airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Notwithstanding, MBC also released some behind-the-scenes photos for the upcoming “W” episodes to tease the viewers. Soompi quoted MBC, “In order for everyone to get through the ‘Monday blues,’ here are some behind-the-scenes stills of Kang Chul and Oh Yeon-joo’s cheesy date.”
In the photos, Han Hyo-joo’s and Lee Jong-suk’s characters portray a different image than what viewers have seen on the show so far. The co-stars are seen wearing matching clothes, eating ice cream, riding bikes together and showing off their great chemistry.
