Movie fanatics sink in drama and soap operas trying to fantasize about how life and relationships should be approached. In any event, comedies, drama, and movies are mere acting depicting various norms and painting a picture about specific actions in the society based on varied themes. In reference to this aspect, Two Worlds, a famous Korean drama series, depicts the correlation between the real and spiritual world as showcased by various characters. Commonly referred to as ‘W, the drama series has graced  Television screens with around  16 episodes. Though exciting through the romance aspect, its unpredictable nature appeals to the audience, keeping them guessing about what will unfold next.

Consequently, this is a critical ingredient that has kept the drama spicy since its inception in 2016. The thriller K-drama series showcases a  clash between good and evil, an aspect that leaves viewers thrilled. The perfect blend of humor, action, mystery, drama, and love shows a unique perspective that has made it more appealing, especially among  Asian movie enthusiasts.

In this regard, the words of  Howard Suber on the power of film cant be underrated. He stated that ‘The hero doesn’t become a hero simply because he takes a stand against the villain; he became a hero because he stood for something. This can be justice, a cause, his family, friends, community, or nation. Invariably, while the villain stands for himself, the hero stands for something beyond himself.
