Ok first, I've been dying to write this review since episode three but I promised to myself that I would wait until I finished it, so, here I am. The most important thing about this drama is that it's seriously underrated. This one of the best dramas that I've ever seen and still there are no reviews. This a drama about second chances opposed to you typical innocent love.
Story-The story is about how the drama world functions, it tries to highlight the differences and similarities between dramas and real life. In the romantic part it's completely different from any kdrama that I've ever seen. So to give you an idea, the leads are exes, so it isn't about how they fall in love, but rather how real couples relate. I loved it because it was a completely realistic story and the kind of romance that shows is completely mature, as opposed to you typical romcom. Also I love that the story isn't only about their relationship. It really shows how the drama business function, and I loved the stories of the supporting characters, specially Uhm Ki Joon and Seo Hyo Rim's. I love that throughout the drama you can see all kinds of love, and that the main idea it that sometimes reality is way better.

Cast-Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo are like the bomb together, they have so much chemistry that at some scenes I thought the whole thing was gonna explode. I wasn't surprised at all when I found out they announced they were a couple in real life two months after the drama, I mean, you could totally see it through the screen. I loved Son Hye Kyo's evolution from Full House to Worlds Within, it shows she really grew as an actress and left behind her innocent self. The supporting actors where all really great, and each really had a chance to shine at least in an episode.

Music-The olnly thing that wasn't perfect in here. It wasn't bad but it wasn't anything special. Actually, it resembles a lot to My Girl's OST.

Rewatch Value-Definitely will rewatch it soon, I loved it, specially the cute scenes that make your heart melt.

Overall-This is a great drama, I recommend it for anyone, it has everything from romance (a lot), to comedy, family, friendship, drama and simply life.

I really loved this drama and I hope that through this review I can encourage at least a person to watch it. If you ever read this and because of this start watchingt this drama, please send me a message or leave a comment on my profile, it would mean a lot to me.

The first time I tried watching this I was on a Hyun Bin kick after watching Secret Garden. I made it to episode 3 before I dropped it due to finding it boring. That was when I was really new to dramas but recently Ive been in a drama slump and decided to give it another try because I like some of the writer’s other works such as Goodbye Solo (really underrated watch it! ) and Padam Padam…

Story: Many would probably find the lack of a plot boring but I didn’t mind it after giving the drama a second chance. The writer just focuses on showcasing the lives of people in the drama industry. Its not about making dramas but what may go on in the lives of these characters and also how they interact with each other. There’s several romances, breakups and makeups which can be seen as realistic. I loved the ending it was perfect!!

Acting/Cast: This is an ensemble piece so even though you might be in it for the billed actors (Hyun Bin and Song Kye Hyo) you will come to love all the actors involved. The chemistry between everyone was soo good that you will become attached to all the characters and root for them. My only gripe is they could’ve showed more scenes of the Gyu Ho/ Hae Jin pairing. I also thought that Daniel Choi was a scene-stealer and his character was unlike anything ive seen him play.

Music: It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t memorable either.

Rewatch: Fast pacing, a great ensemble cast, and a nice ending make it very rewatchable but I don’t have to watch it again for a while.

Overall I think a more seasoned drama watcher or viewers who like mature/realistic stories will enjoy Worlds Within a lot.
