In the drama “Tomorrow,” Park Joong-Gil (played by Lee Soo-Hyuk) is a charming character. He is not a villain, but he frequently clashes with Goo Ryeon and her team, despite the fact that he works for the same company. He appears to be a cold-blooded individual, but he revealed a warm side of himself during the veteran episode. In the original webtoon “Tomorrow,” what kind of person was Park Joong-Gil? Let’s take a look at what has changed during the drama adaptation.
1. The character’s surname has changed.
In the original webtoon, Park Joong-Gil’s name was Choi Joong-Gil. Llama, the creator of the original webtoon, explained why the character’s name was changed on Instagram. To show how stubborn he is, the drama’s production team changed the character’s last name from Choi to Park.
2. Park Joong-Gil is not the webtoon’s main character.
Park Joong-Gil is a notable character in the webtoon, but he is not one of the main characters. He wears a dark suit, and he has noticeable dark circles under his eyes because he does not sleep at all. Park Joong-Gil appears on occasion and has disagreements with Goo Ryeon’s team, but he is not involved in most episodes of the webtoon.
Park Joong-Gil appears as one of four main characters in the drama “Tomorrow,” alongside Goo Ryeon, Choi Jun-Woong, and Lim Ryung-Goo. He appears in every episode of the drama, and he leads a large number of people on his team, making him an important character in the story.
3. Park Joong-Gil didn’t have a romantic relationship with Goo Ryeon.
The biggest difference between the webtoon and the drama “Tomorrow” is that Park Joong-Gil and Goo Ryeon are related in their past lives in the drama version.
Park Joong-Gil’s past is briefly depicted in the webtoon, but he has no relationship with Goo Ryeon. Readers of the webtoon “Tomorrow” assume that someone Park Joong-Gil knew in a previous life committed suicide. He despises people who commit suicide because of a traumatic event that happened in his past.
Park Joong-Gil says in front of the Jade Emperor: “Suicide is the biggest mistake that a person can make, and it should never be condoned.”
The drama “Tomorrow” shows Park Joong-Gil’s romantic relationship with Goo Ryeon in the past. They met when they were young and liked each other. In the drama, the young Park Joong-Gil and Goo Ryeon appear to marry.
However, the two people’s relationship did not appear to be a happy one. Goo Ryeon had to suffer in hell for a long time before the Jade Emperor summoned her to become a grim reaper. She doesn’t seem to remember Park Joong-Gil as her husband from a previous life.
