“Tomorrow,” one of the most anticipated K-dramas of the first half of 2022, will be released on April 1st. As of this writing, there have been a few visuals and trailers for the drama. It looks like the drama will follow the characters and plot of the original webtoon. Let us guess three scenes from the first episode based on the drama’s teaser and the original webtoon “Tomorrow” synopsis.
1. Choi Joon-woong joins the group of Grim Reapers, who try to keep people from committing suicide.
At the start of the teaser, there is a script that says, “As of today, there is no Choi Joon-woong in this world.” This indicates that Choi Joon-woong (Rowoon) died or was in a coma, as depicted in the Webtoon. In the next scene in the trailer, Choi Joon-woong receives a new employee ID and a new suit.
When he was alive, Choi Joon-woong failed to find work many times before landing a job as a grim reaper in a dead world. The team Choi Joon-woong joined is known as the “crisis management team,” and they are primarily in charge of saving those who want to commit suicide.
2. The Grim Reapers use cutting-edge technology, such as smartphones, to locate their missions.
The trailer shows Goo Ryun (Kim Hee-Sun) checking her smartphone, and there is an alert on the smartphone with a screen that displays a person’s profile.
The Grim Reaper team, like in the original webtoon, uses smartphone technology to find their target client. The trailer also introduces “Jumadeung” as a monopoly company in the dead world. This company is sure to have a big impact on people’s deaths, and they invest in cutting-edge smartphone technology for their employees who work as grim reapers.
3. After Choi Joon-woong joins Goo Ryun’s team, their first mission is to assist someone who was being bullied.
The first client of Goo Ryun’s team in the drama “Tomorrow” is named Noh Eun-bi, which is the same name as in the original webtoon. In the webtoon, she is bullied by other students at her school. Goo Ryun pretended to be a math teacher at the school and listened to her concerns. In the drama version, Noh Eun-bi is described as a 29-year-old scriptwriter. Furthermore, the trailer shows someone spilling milk on Noh Eun-bi’s hair while she is wearing a school uniform.
We can assume that Noh Eun-bi was bullied in school and that she is still traumatized as an adult. As Noh Eun-bi stated in the trailer, “I also want to live,” implying that she intends to commit suicide. Goo Ryun’s team’s first goal is to convince her not to kill herself.
