Lee Jong-Suk and Han Hyo-Joo made an impressive performance in "W:Two Worlds." The very good chemistry between them convince viewers they both are really dating off-screen. After the drama end, how is the story between them?

Lee Jong-Suk recently became a model for InStyle, a leading Korean fashion magazine. Lee, who started his career as a model, reminisced his first acting breakthrough in 2014 drama "Pinocchio." The drama helped propel his popularity and led to rumors that he's dating co-star Park Shin-Hye, despite dismissing that as merely rumors.

Lee admitted that "Pinocchio" is something special for his acting career. When he started to shoot "W:Two Worlds," he felt the same towards it.

"After 'Pinocchio' I tried to cool down for one year to let it all sink in. But when I started 'W,' I believe this this will be another turning point for my career," he said in an interview with Naver as translated into English.

Lee has now begun a new project in his video broadcast in Naver V Live application to his fans, as reported by Korea Economic. He will start shooting in October, exactly a month after "W: Two Worlds" filming ended last Sept. 12.

He also said that filming "W: Two Worlds" is harder than any drama he had ever been. But since he believed about the turning point, he consider the hard work as worthwhile for him personally.

Meanwhile last Tuesday, writer Song Jae-Jung held a press conference in Seoul regarding the MBC drama she wrote. She apologized to actress Han for giving her the hardest character to play, Soompi reported.

Song said that Oh Yeon-Joo, Han's character in the drama, must bear a huge burden. It's because she must choose whether to take Kang-Cheol's (Lee) side or his father's, played by Kim Eui-Sung. Either option will result to the death of the other; Yeon-Joo ultimately went for Kang-Cheol instead of her father.

"W: Two Worlds" ranked well in viewer ratings with an average of 13% in TnMS and Nielsen Korea.
