Jade Emperor is the character who changed the most during the drama adaptation of “Tomorrow.” In the original webtoon, the Jade Emperor appears and behaves very differently than in the drama. Let’s take a look at what has changed.
The Jade Emperor was a young and fancy woman in the webtoon.
The Jade Emperor’s appearance has changed dramatically during the drama adaptation. She appears as a cool and attractive young woman riding a motorcycle in the original webtoon.
In the drama, the Jade Emperor is shown as an older lady with a warm personality who wears a white gown.
In the webtoon, there is another character who works as the COO of Jumadeung.
Someone other than the Jade Emperor oversees the majority of the company’s operations and manages the grim reapers in the webtoon “Tomorrow.” He goes by the name Yeom-Ra and appears as a bearded muscle man.
Choi Jung-Woong is invited to his garden and is offered tea. Yeom-Ra asks Choi Jun-Woong about his job as a grim reaper and how Goo Ryeon treats him. Choi Jun-Woong is nervous because he believes he is speaking at the highest level of the underworld. However, Yeom-Ra mentions a person above him who is in charge of all living things, the Jade Emperor.
Choi Jun-Woong first meets the Jade Emperor in the episode “A Soul Becomes a Star.” In the episode, the Jade Emperor summons all the grim reapers to pay a silent tribute to the war veteran.
Yeom-Ra doesn’t appear in the drama “Tomorrow.” Instead, the Jade Emperor performs the same function that Yeom-Ra does in the webtoon. She advises Choi Jung-Woong and Goo Ryeon on their team project. In addition, the Jade Emperor organizes meeting with the managers, and she’s often busy signing paperwork.
