Lee Jong Suk may have said his last goodbye to his character on the W-Two Worlds season finale, but that doesn’t mean the role won’t have a lasting impact on his career.
Jong Suk, whose last Korean drama was Pinnochio in 2014, says that his desire to continue acting was fulfilled on W.
“The thirst I had to act while resting for a year after ‘Pinocchio’ was fully quenched when I started this project.” Jong Suk said in an interview with In Style Korea, as reported by Soompi.

“Personally, through ‘W’ I grew to worry less about my way of acting, and I saw the image of myself that I wanted to see. I think it will become another turning point for me.”

According to Soompi, Lee Jong Suk had also expressed that working on W was more of a challenge when compared to other dramas.
“This show was harder than other dramas, but it was also a worthwhile work that was new for me personally. I think this drama will be the starting point for things to change a lot,” Jong Suk said during a live-stream ahead of the season finale of the show.
During the livestream, fans asked Lee about the projects that he’s got coming up. While he didn’t tell them what his next project would be, Jong Suk dropped a hint that he would have to gain weight for his next role.
But although he has a new gig lined up, W-Two Worlds fans aren’t going to forget about his stint as Kang Chul anytime soon.
After the W season finale, fans got a special treat, an extra episode that compiled behind-the-scenes footage with some of the best moments from Season 1 of the show.
As Yibada reports, during the special episode, Lee Jong Suk and Han Hyo Joo, who played his love interest on the KDrama, listed their favorite kissing scenes from W-Two Worlds’ first season.
“I think this drama had the most kiss scenes out of all of the dramas I have done,” Han said.
Han and Lee both agreed that their kissing scene from Episode 2 deserved a third place ranking, according to Yibada.
In second place, Han Hyo Joo picked their kiss from the 10th episode. This one was a pretty emotional kiss where Han expertly displays the tenderness of her character.
For the number one spot. Lee chose the kiss scene from the seventh episode where Han Hyo Joo’s character was handcuffed. It’s no wonder that one was his choice. It’s a very passionate kiss between Kang Chul and Oh Yeon Joo, which Lee said he had to do some “research” for, Yibada reports.
“I researched a lot about what to do with the hands since the female lead’s hands are in handcuffs as well as what angle to place my head,” Lee said in a recent interview with Korea’s High Cut Magazine. “It came out just as pretty as I had expected.”
