One source claimed that Lee Jong Suk does not want to part ways with his "W Two-Worlds" character, Kang Chul and his lady love, Oh Yeon Joo, played by Han Hyo Joo. It was revealed that out of all his productions till date, "W Two-Worlds" is the toughest one to bid goodbye to.
"It was harder than other productions, but it was also more rewarding. It was very new for me, and I think I'll change a lot because of this production," the actor shared on a video.
"The filming was delayed as the broadcasts for the drama was pushed back about a week, so my schedule after that was pushed back, too. I'm in the midst of photo shoots and other schedules as always. I'm Kang Chul until the day after tomorrow," he shared.
