Yes, am still fixating on Worlds Within
1. I really really loved the bit with Kyu-Ho and Joon Young when the latter gets sick on-set. She's been working crazy hours, is coming down with something, and Ji Oh dumping her in such a brutal fashion out of nowhere is not contributing to her wellbeing either. So she is clearly not well. And Kyu-Ho is all "pros don't get sick when they work" and then orders her home
and when she refuses, makes someone drive her. AWWWWW. I love Kyu-Ho because he is both a bastard and because he's adorable with a heart despite his cynical hard-nosed manner. It's kinda an awesome combination.
2. If there is one thing I am going to take away from Worlds Within, it's the firm conviction that whoever wants to work for drama production in any capacity is STARK RAVING MAD and should be locked up. These are worse hours than a surgeon's and not as nice working conditions, either.
Ji Oh might be full of misery and what not but anyone who makes Joon Young look like this freaking DESERVES to suffer. Team Joon Young! Go go go!!! Yes, I understand why Ji Oh is acting out and am very sympathetic - his life as he knows it is over - his career and his disease are completely incompatible and it's a pretty limiting and even crippling illness, but I still feel so very horrible for Joon Young - maybe because I can understand her so well - it used to be my greatest fear, to open your heart to someone, to learn to be dependent on him and need him, and make yourself vulnerable, only for him to hurt you in return. As I commented to popaddict
, if something like this (i.e. WW-type stuff) happened to me, I'd still love the guy and take him back and forgive him, but it would take a LONG time for me to fully trust him again and trust in the permanence of my happiness.
3a. On a semi-related and very shallow note, Ji Oh looks so yummilicious when he angsts...Even if I do want to twist his idiotic head off.
4. I really like the somewhat looping, non-linear structure of WW. For example, ep 12 reloops the same day three times, from new p.o.vs - as you see Joon Young falling apart in front of Ji Oh's closed door when he walked so unaffectedly by. And then later you see the day from Ji Oh's POV and he is falling apart just as badly on the other side of that same door. Loved it.
5. The chemistry continues out of this world, as in this flashback to happier times:
