Fans were wondering what Kim Sejeong’s next drama would be after “Business Proposal,” and she’s now back in “Today’s Webtoon.” In “Business Proposal,” Kim Sejeong played a girl who gets a blind date with the CEO of her company. Will she find love again in the new drama “Today’s Webtoon?”
Kim Sejeong plays On Ma-Eum in the new drama, who was a promising Judo player before becoming an employee of the IT company Neon. She joins the editorial department of a webtoon, which is in charge of publishing comics online.
The team not only organizes the release of the webtoons but also assists the webtoon authors in maintaining their success. For example, On Ma-Eum and her senior, Seok Ji-Hyung, frequently visit a 30-year veteran cartoonist who wants to retire.
Another time, one of their team members, Goo Jun-Yeong, gets calls from a well-known author who needs help with things like changing a lightbulb or unclogging a toilet.
Although the drama focuses primarily on coming-of-age stories, as it did in its Japanese original version, there are a few scenes that make the audience wonder if there will be romance involved.
On Ma-Eum meets her senior, Seok Ji-Hyung, before she even joins the firm. She is at Neon’s event to do part-time bodyguard work, and she misidentifies Seok Ji-Hyung as a pervert. After On Ma-Eum joins the webtoon editorial team, the two re-connect and frequently collaborate.
They are on a mission to persuade legendary comic writer Baek Eo-Jin not to retire. Throughout their mission, they frequently laugh and look at each other, making the audience wonder if they will fall in love.
Another potential romance for On Ma-Eum between her and her teammate Goo Jun-Yeong. Goo Jun-Yeong, like On Ma-Eum, is a new employee. He and On Ma-Eum are given minor assignments, such as delivering cardboard cutouts to a well-known webtoon author. On Ma-Eum can easily carry heavy objects, but Goo Jun-Yeong cannot.
When On Ma-Eum assists Goo Jun-Yeong in grabbing the cardboard he was holding, Goo Jun-Yeong closes his eyes because he thinks On Ma-Eum is about to kiss him.
This suggests a possible romance between the two.
Will On Ma-Eum and the two guys stay coworkers, or will they fall in love? Let us wait and see how the drama “Today’s Webtoon” develops.
