TVING's new original series 'Island' raised anticipation with the release of its official posters ahead of premiere.
On December 28, one netizen said on an online community, "Wow, the poster for 'Island' came out and their synchronization [with the webtoon] is amazing." Here, the netizen included the individual character posters of the lead actors including Kim Nam Gil, Lee Da Hee, Cha Eun Woo, and Sung Joon. Each of the character posters showed the original webtoon images of the characters, on which the actors' visuals were also revealed through ripped pages of the webtoon drawings. Netizens were able to get a side-by-side view of each character's webtoon drawing and their respective actors, which surprised many with the nearly perfect synchronization.
Meanwhile, 'Island' will premiere on December 30 KST.
"Wow Lee Da Hee...Woah."
"Lee Da Hee matches the character so well."
"At this point, wouldn't it be correct to just say that the webtoon was drawn based on the actors themselves?"
"Wow. It looks like they casted the actors and then drew the webtoon images again."
"Isn't Lee Da Hee just her???"
"Ahh, 'Island' is originally a webtoon?"
"Wow. This is amazing. Cha Eun Woo."
"Cha Eun Woo is even more handsome than the webtoon image."
"Just looking at their visuals is amazing."
"I don't know anything about the original plot, but I'm just going to watch because Cha Eun Woo is coming out."
