We are currently covering the following:
Happy Monday, K-drama viewers! And what a treat this weekend was. Between two excellent episodes of Our Blues, shifting the focus elegantly between different Jeju Island residents, My Liberation Notes bowed out with a satisfying (but ambiguous) ending, leaving lots to the imagination.
That much is especially evident in the ratings, with Our Blues reaching 11.8% on Sunday and My Liberation Notes ending on 6.7%
Bloody Heart has also jumped to 6.6%, edging out Woori The Virgin which, to be honest, feels like it’s going to appeal more to an international audience anyway. That one feels like a trick missed for Netflix to pick up!
We also saw the end of Green Mothers Club this week, ending with a boost of 6.1% after a rather tepid conclusion. That’s due to be replaced by Insider on 8th June.
Again My Life also ended its run, with episode 15 bumped up to 12%! It seems both netizens and avid watchers in Korea are digging law dramas, so we’ve got a plethora of them coming in June, including Why Her, which replaces this.
All in all though, May has been a very good month for K-Drama. Will June be able to top this? We’ll have to wait to find out!
