‘W’ or ‘W: Two Worlds’ is a 2016 MBC drama from Korea. The 16-part suspense thriller is directed by Jung Dae-Yoon and written by Song Jae-Jung, and it focuses on the events that occur when “two worlds—our actual world and an alternate universe inside a webtoon—collide.” Hence, the moniker. As expected for a critically acclaimed fantasy series, ‘W’ had massive viewership figures from the start of its run and remained at the top of the Content Power Index for the whole season.
W: Two Worlds Apart Season 2 Release Date
The likelihood of a quick premiere of Two Worlds Apart Season 2 is currently low. There is absolutely no chance that it will come out within the next six months. The main cause is the producers’ denial of the second season’s announcement. The lack of an established concept and storyline for Season 2 is another factor in the network’s decision to downplay the news. Since the first season set such a high standard, everyone is looking forward to the second season even more than they did the first. The producers are still looking for a story because they don’t want to let the fans down or dash their aspirations.
W: Two Worlds Apart Storyline
The webcomic W is the focus of ‘W,’ a documentary about the life and work of webcomic artist Oh Seong-moo. Sheong-moo’s drinking got better after his divorce, but before ‘W’ became a bestseller in South Korea, he was already a minor celebrity.
The webtoon’s protagonist, Kang Chul, is a dashing young man of extraordinary intelligence and skill with a gun. After winning the Olympic shooting competition in 2004 in Athens, he quickly became a national hero in his home country of Korea. When his family is slain, though, everything in his life changes. When Kang Chul is wrongly accused of a crime, Han Cheol-ho takes up his cause and asks the court to sentence him to death. However, Kang Chul is finally successful in demonstrating his innocence. At one point, he decides to end his life by jumping into the Han River, but he changes his mind.
Almost a decade later, Kang Chul has become a multimillionaire and launched “Project W” to track down the person responsible for killing his family. He is also involved in the project because he owns a television broadcasting company. One night, though, he receives a mystery phone call and is brutally attacked by the webcomic’s main villain.

W: Two Worlds Apart Season 2 Plot
The first season of Two Worlds Apart told a complete story that concluded definitively in the season finale. Because they haven’t come up with a concept that will pique viewers’ interest like season 1 did, the showrunners have yet to commit to making a second season. However, if we take a realistic view of the second season, we may expect to see the same girl trapped in a webtoon universe that is vastly different from the first. It will be interesting to see how the writer wraps up the plot of the second season. However, that won’t be possible until the producers announce the show’s second season.
