The K2 Korean drama will be ending today. In a recent interview, lead cast member Ji Chang Wook thanked the show?s fans.
The Hallyu heartthrob starred in the TVN series as a bodyguard named Kim Je Ha. His client is the illegitimate daughter of a presidential candidate, named Go An-Na. The female protagonist is played by Yoona of Girls Generation.
They eventually fell for each other amid the show?s action sequences and political undertones. These seemingly made The K2 more complex than other Korean dramas today.
The K2 reviews and ratings
However, the production has been plagued with negative feedback, mostly about Yoona?s alleged poor acting. According to reviews, the girly image she is famous for contradicts with the show?s racy plot.
Reports claimed that these criticisms resulted to the show?s mediocre viewership throughout its 16-episode run.
Chang Wook?s message as The K2 ends
Even with the inconsistent ratings, The K2 cast and staff members are still seemingly happy with the overall turnout.
In a recent interview published by MobileNApps, Chang Wook thanked those who followed the show since its September debut.
He said that he did not select The K2 just to earn recognition for its unique storyline and action scenes. Nonetheless, he is humbled by the praises that he has been receiving from its viewers.
?I want to thank everyone for their praise and I will continue to work hard so I can keep on hearing praise,” the 29-year-old expressed.
Fan meet with Yoona
Chang Wook expressed his gratitude by treating some of the show?s most loyal fans to free coffee.
He promised to do so if the show reached at least five percent ratings. Since this was accomplished last week, TVN confirmed the impromptu fan meet. However, it was only for selected viewers.
Now that The K2 is over, Chang Wook focus on a highly-anticipated project titled First Kiss for the Sixth Time. Its all-star cast includes Lee Jong Suk, Lee Jun Ki, Park Hae Jin, EXO?s Kai, and 2PM?s Taecyeon. The web drama has been dubbed as a Meteor Garden remake due to the number of stars that will be part of the cast.
