The latest webtoon to join the roster of upcoming drama adaptations is "Delusion". The original work is by Hongjacga, titled "현혹" or "Delusion". The story is based in 1935 in Gyeongseong where a struggling artist Yun Iho has just received a strange commission from the strange and reclusive Madam Song JeongHwa. No one has seen her face to face but it is assumed that she is an elderly woman from the aging portraits she has displayed of her. In order to have her portrait painted, Madam Song allows Iho to look at her but much to his surprise, it is a young woman who hasn't aged a day over her twenties.

Madam Song however, insists on him painting an elderly version of her for some unknown reason, indicating a dark secret that lurks behind her appearance. Iho soon learns that no artist has left Madam Song’s abode alive or even sane. A secret message tucked between a previous artist's paint tube warns him against finishing the portrait. A dark secret lingers behind this commission, with the consequences of finishing the portrait of utmost importance.

The webtoon is gripping in every sense of the world and we soon find out that the secret that underlies the narrative is none other than that of vampires: ageless, eternal, bloodsucking vampires. 

Here's a look at the webtoon!

There are many interesting characters in the webtoon who are also equally mysterious as our protagonists. We already have some amazing actors in mind for the drama adaptation of "Delusion"!

 

1. Yun Iho

Yun Iho is an unsuccessful and obscure artist who is nonetheless talented. He spirals into unavoidable paranoia after he is commissioned to paint the portrait of Madam Song JeongHwa and suspects that she might be a vampire. He starts suffering from insomnia and anxiety. However, Madam Song is strangely comfortable with Yun Iho and eventually opens up to him as well, confessing to her identity and her past. We think Lee JeHoon, Lee DongWook, Lee DoHyun, and Kim JaeWook would be amazing at this role.

Song JeongHwa is a woman of extraordinary beauty but she is also sensitive and at times eccentric. She lives in seclusion and hasn't left her mansion in years. She comes off as disrespectful to those around her but part of that comes from her real age which is much more than what her appearance shows. She was abused for a lot of her life, especially in her childhood as she grew up in a toxic environment. She did not turn into a vampire of her own volition and as such, regrets becoming a vampire. Throughout the webtoon, she is a determined and brave woman. 

We think Seo YeJi, Lee Elijah, Krystal Jung, and Song HyeKyo would be perfect for this character.
