In the drama that is. According to the news, the episode 11 preview of “The World They Live In” shown last week show a snippet of the break-up scene of Ji Oh (Hyun Bin) and Joon Young (Song Hye Kyo). As the couple is well-liked by many even till the point of jealousy, many viewers expressed objections towards such a direction in plot development after watching the preview.
In the preview of episode 11, Joon Young said with tears: “I want to ask you, why do you treat me like this?”, but Ji Oh replied calmly: “This relationship between you and me isn’t really a big deal, I seriously cannot find any reason why I have to endure all these, hence I have decided to give up.” After the preview was shown, netizens swarmed the internet forums and protested against such a development in the plot.
In addition, the Ji Oh’s eye injury also triggered the curiosity of the viewers. Many netizens speculated that Ji Oh might be facing the risk of going blind or even death. One netizens even gave a bold speculation that Ji Oh will go blind and Joon Young who did not know about the truth, goes overseas for studies and they reunite after a few years.
In response to these wild speculations, the spokesperson of YEG (production company) said: “Writer Noh Hee Kyung is someone who really focuses on the realism of her drama, so the above type of scenario will not happen.”
