In the drama, Seo Ji Hwan lives with five subordinates: Joo Il Young, Kwak Jae Soo, Jung Man Ho, Yang Hong Ki, and Lee Dong Hee. However, in the webtoon, Seo Ji Hwan has twelve subordinates, but only five live with him. The characters in the webtoon are Jingeun, Yunseop, a long-haired man, and Mingyu, with only Joo Il Young being the same character in both versions. This difference adds a unique dynamic to each version, with the drama focusing on a smaller, more intimate group.

In the drama, Go Eun Ha and Seo Ji Hwan first meet at the Cat Gang’s club while Ji Hwan is investigating a drug case. Go Yang Hee, depicted as Ji Hwan’s peer in the drama, is one of his teachers in the webtoon. In the webtoon, Eun Ha and Ji Hwan meet when Eun Ha, working part-time as a cleaner, accidentally hits Ji Hwan’s ribs with a mop handle. These different encounters set different tones for their relationship development in each version.

3. The Thirsty Deer Gang’s Reaction to Eun Ha

After Seo Ji Hwan’s hospitalization due to broken ribs, the Thirsty Deer gang initially wants to take revenge on Go Eun Ha in the drama. However, they fail as Ji Hwan forbids it. Over time, they warm up to Eun Ha and support her relationship with Ji Hwan by episodes 7 and 8. In contrast, the webtoon shows the Thirsty Deer gang liking Eun Ha from the start because she effortlessly chased away the Cat Gang, seeing her as a suitable partner for Ji Hwan.

4. Eun Ha’s Role as a Tutor

In the drama, Seo Ji Hwan asks Go Eun Ha to become a tutor for the Deer Thirst members after she loses her studio apartment. This is his way of ensuring she stays close. In the webtoon, it’s Joo Il Young and his friends who ask Eun Ha to be their tutor, hoping to get her closer to Ji Hwan. Initially, Ji Hwan does not agree with this arrangement, highlighting a different approach to how Eun Ha becomes part of Ji Hwan’s life.

Eun Ha’s search for her childhood friend Yoon Hyun Woo is a significant plot point in both versions. In the drama, Eun Ha believes Prosecutor Jang Hyun Woo might be her friend. Ji Hwan, hiding his true identity as Yoon Hyun Woo, is reluctant to reveal himself. The drama depicts their farewell when a stranger chases Eun Ha, leading to Ji Hwan being caught. The webtoon portrays this differently, with Yoon Hyun Woo being taken by a man in a black suit while playing in the park with Eun Ha. This difference adds distinct emotional layers to their separation in each version.

As The Woman Who Plays Webtoon (2024) continues to unfold, just like the drama My Sweet Mobster (2024), fans eagerly anticipate how these differences will impact the story’s final outcome. What do you think their final fate will be?

My Sweet Mobster and The Woman Who Plays Webtoon both offer unique storytelling experiences, making it a delight for fans to explore both versions. Which one do you prefer?
