The plot of “Tomorrow” begins with Choi Jun-Woong (Rowoon), who falls into a coma unexpectedly. He joins the risk management team with Goo Ryeon and Lim Ryung-Goo, and their journey to save people begins. Choi Jun-Woong’s characteristics haven’t changed much from the webtoon to the drama, but his relationships with other people have. Let’s see what has changed about him during the webtoon’s drama adaptation.
1. Soon after Choi Jun-Woong goes into a coma, Goo Ryeon comes up to him and invites him to join her team.
In the original webtoon “Tomorrow,” Choi Jun-Woong falls under the bridge and enters a coma. Goo Ryeon approaches him, and she immediately offers Choi Jun-Woong a position since there is a vacancy in her team. She promises Choi Jun-Woong that if he works hard enough, they will help him wake up from a coma sooner than expected, and they will ensure his good fortune in the future.
When Choi Jun-Woong accepts the offer, Lim Ryung-Goo brings him a standard Jumadeung contract and has him sign it.
In the drama, Choi Jun-Woong does not join Goo Ryeon’s team until the first episode, “Fallen Flower,” is completed. Until that point, neither he nor Goo Ryeon wanted to be on the same team. Goo Ryeon first brings Choi Jun-Woong to Jumadeung’s office, where she introduces him to the Jade Emperor.
Choi Jun-Woong is asked if he wants to join the grim reaper’s work, but he declines. The Jade Emperor sends him back to coma status, at which point Choi Jun-Woong realizes it is in his best interests to accept the job. He joins the video editing team at first, but he quits after only a day. He eventually becomes a member of Goo Ryeon’s team.
2. Choi Jun-Woong’s family background has changed.
Choi Jun-Woong was born and raised in a happy and wealthy family in the webtoon. His father is a doctor, his mother is a judge, and his two older sisters are prosecutors and a doctor.
His prosecutor sister is the one who defends the sexual assault victim in the “Breath” episode.
Choi Jun-Woong himself graduated from a good college and has a large circle of friends. The only thing he doesn’t have is a job. He is unable to find a job as a result of what he did in his previous life.
In Netflix’s “Tomorrow,” Choi Jun-Woong’s family background has changed. His father has passed away, and his mother owns a snack shop. He has only one younger sister. Choi Jun-Woong’s younger sister takes a leave of absence from school and works as a private tutor to help pay for his hospital bills. In the “Breath” episode, the mother and sister are shown to be very sad about Choi Jun-Woong, who is in a coma.
3. Choi Jun-Woong is not Namgoong Jae-Su’s best friend.
In the drama’s “Forest of Time” episode, Choi Jun-Woong is concerned about his best friend, Namgoong Jae-Su, and looks for a way to assist him. He goes back in time with Goo Ryeon and learns about his best friend’s childhood.
On the other hand, Choi Jun-Woong has no relationship with Namgoong Jae-Su in the webtoon “Tomorrow.” He meets Namgoong Jae-Su for the first time during his team project. Nonetheless, Choi Jun-Woong sits with him and comforts him by telling him about his own past.
Choi Jun-Woong talks about his depressing past when he was the only one who couldn’t excel in the family. Namgoong Jae-Su feels better after listening to someone who has been in a similar situation to him, and he no longer considers harming himself.
