The drama “Tomorrow” episode “Someday, Because of You” tells the heartbreaking story of a puppy named Kong and his brother Kim Hoon. Cha Hak-Yeon of the boy group VIXX made a special appearance in the episode and expressed his love and care for the dog.
This episode was also available in the original webtoon and was adapted for the drama with a few minor changes. Let’s take a look at what has changed from the webtoon to the drama series.
1. The way Kim Hoon adopted Kong has changed.
In the webtoon “Tomorrow,” Kong jumps out of a truck and runs away while being sold to a dog farm. But he is soon discovered by the owner, and the owner throws him against the wall. When young Kim Hoon and his father see it, they feel sorry for the dog. Kim Hoon’s father offers to buy the dog from the owner, and this is how Kong meets Kim Hoon for the first time.
In the drama, Kim Hoon and his mother come across Kong, who is injured and bleeding on the street. They dial 911, save Kong, and then decide to raise him.
2. Kim Hoon speaks directly to Kong with the assistance of a dog communicator.
The webtoon has a more fantasy element than the drama in the “Someday, Because of You” episode. There is a group of people in Jumadeng who can communicate directly with animals. One of them has been assigned to assist Goo Ryeon’s team. The story of Kong is told through the animal translator, and this is how the team learns about Kong and Kim Hoon.
Kim Hoon is able to converse with the puppy Kong in the same way that he converses with other humans. Kong tells his brother Kim Hoon that he has always been happy with him. Kong mentions that he overheard Kim Hoon say he would die if Kong died. Kong didn’t want Kim Hoon to be sad because of him.
In this final conversation, Kong expresses gratitude to Kim Hoon for choosing him.
In the drama “Tomorrow,” Choi Jun-Woong visits Jumadeng and receives a videotape depicting Kong’s life. Choi Jun-Woong watches the video and learns what happened between Kong and Kim Hoon. Kim Hoon does not get to speak with Kong directly, but he hears Kong’s emotions through Choi Jun-Woong and Goo Ryeon.
3. The presence of Choi Jun-Woong’s family has been added.
The drama intertwines Kong’s episode with Choi Jun-Woong’s family story, which is not depicted in the webtoon. In the webtoon, Namgoong Jae-Su from the episode “Forest of Time” reappears and tells Goo Ryeon that he recognizes Kong. He says he saw Kong on the street a few times and brought him some food.
Choi Jun-Woong’s family appears in the drama episode “Tomorrow.” Choi Jun-Woong’s sister is the person who saved Kong from a car accident, and she asks if Choi Jun-Woong’s team could care for the dog. The sister mentions her brother, Choi Jun-Woong, and she says that when it comes to family, humans and animals behave similarly.
Both the webtoon and the drama end with Kong and Kim Hoon meeting again after a long time apart, giving the audience a happy ending.
