Are you looking for a K-drama that'll remind you of your teenage years? Extraordinary You, which premiered in October, will do just that + take you to a fictional world of comic book characters!
Wanna know more? Here, we prepped the basics for you:
1. It's set in a comic book world, BUT, the characters don't know they're fictional.
Eun Dan Oh is ultra-rich, pretty, and has a critical heart condition. She feels like she's the heroine of her story. However, she soon finds out that she and everyone else are actually characters in a webtoon called Secret. Plus, she's not the lead character: She only plays a SUPPORTING ROLE. Dan Oh searches for a character called "Number 13" who can help her go against the story's plot and ~write her own destiny~.
2. The drama stars Kim Hye Yoon and Rowoon.
Rowoon, on the other hand, is a member of boy group SB9 (Sensational Feeling 9)! His latest acting role was on Where Stars Land (2018). LOOK, WHAT A PRECIOUS BB:
3. VERY META: It's actually based on a webcomic series called July Found By Chance, written by Moo Ryoo.
It was originally published on Daum Webtoon in 2018.
4. There's A LOT of eye candy.
Extraordinary You set in high school, so there MUST be heartthrobs with *stunning visuals* in the story. We have Baek Kyung (Lee Jae Wook), Dan Oh's longtime crush, and Jin Mi Chae (Lee Tae Ri), a mysterious character who guides Dan Oh in her quest to go against the manhwa's story!
5. You can watch it on Viu!
