Watch: Kim Sejeong, Nam Yoon Su, And Choi Daniel Reflect On “Today’s Webtoon” And Say Goodbye To Viewers
The main cast of “Today’s Webtoon” have shared their final farewells in the drama’s last making video!
The Korean remake of the popular 2016 Japanese series “Sleepeeer Hit!,” “Today’s Webtoon” is set against the backdrop of South Korea’s competitive webtoon industry. Kim Sejeong stars as On Ma Eum, a former judo athlete who joins a webtoon editorial department as a new employee and struggles to mature into a true editor. On September 17, the drama aired its finale to a slight ratings rise.
The video starts at the Neon webtoon office for their final scenes. Choi Daniel sweetly comments to Kim Sejeong, “Ma Eum is pretty on the last day [of filming] too,” but she points to the camera to signal that she knows why he’s complimenting her. Park Ho San jokes, “I saw this all throughout this project!” and in response, Choi Daniel gives him a compliment too.
After the final take, the cast is all smiles as they cheer for each other and pull out props for group photos. Kim Sejeong excitedly shares, “While living Ma Eum’s really eventful life, I met many great people and I met so many great people on this set too so I was able to conclude happily as both Sejeong and Ma Eum. I think this drama was a set where I was able to learn a lot. I was so, so, so, so happy, and so, so, so, so, thankful.”
Choi Daniel continues, “We did the final filming of ‘Today’s Webtoon’ today and we’ve wrapped up a long journey. I have learned a lot, felt a lot, and have both difficult and enjoyable memories from filming. Now that it’s done, I feel sad yet refreshed. No matter where or when, I will always support our director and my fellow actors including Sejeong and Yoon Su. Eventually, as we continue, I believe the day will come where we meet again.”
Nam Yoon Su remarks, “I can’t believe that today is the final filming and I keep feeling like I will have to film again tomorrow. As so many people related to, loved, and gave lots of attention to [the drama], I am so thankful. I hope ‘Today’s Webtoon’ will always remain in your memories.”
Choi Daniel and Nam Yoon Su thank viewers for watching while Kim Sejeong shares, “This is something I said at our press conference too but I do not believe that there’s a single dream that deserves to be pointed at [in discrimination]. Until the day when every dream can be supported, I will support everyone who is working hard and I will also work even harder in the future. Let’s meet again in another great project.”
