The age difference of 26 years fades into irrelevance in the face of the captivating chemistry between Kim Nam Joo and Cha Eun Woo. Despite a six-year hiatus, Kim Nam Joo’s meticulous self-care allowed her to portray a character teetering on the brink of self-destruction with grace and beauty. Adding Cha Eun Woo to that only intensifies the drama’s poignant allure. Cha Eun Woo, whose handsome features once seemed a hindrance to his acting, has, with the help of Kim Nam Joo’s acting prowess, added a layer of mysterious charm to his role.

MBC’s Wonderful World saw its viewership peak at 7.2% just two episodes in, marking a significant increase from its previous episode and setting a new record for itself. The show’s rapid ascent hints at the emergence of a potent Friday-Saturday drama.

The drama’s narrative deepened with the formal introduction of Sun Yool, played by Cha Sun Woo. By day, Sun Yool is a diligent young man working in a rough scrapyard; by night, he becomes a chilling figure, concealing his identity while serving the politician Kim Jun. His double life, juxtaposed with his icy demeanor as he handles his jobs mercilessly, has amplified curiosity about his true identity.

The plot thickens with the release of Soo Hyun and her poignant encounter with Sun Yool. Visiting her son Gun Woo’s grave in the rain, Soo Hyun breaks down in tears until she realizes the rain has stopped, thanks to Sun Yool holding an umbrella over her. It turns out Sun Yool was also there to visit someone’s grave. His concern for Soo Hyun, asking, “Are you okay?” and his gentle gesture of blocking the rain with an umbrella because “Gun Woo would be sad to see this” have captivated the audience’s attention.

Viewers have been enthralled by this scene, praising the convincing setup and performances: “Only Kim Nam Joo could pull off such a role” and “Never thought Kim Nam Joo and Cha Eun Woo would make such a perfect duo.” The anticipation for how the story will unfold and what relationship the two characters will develop has significantly heightened.
