The netizen then listed the following ratings with “Big Mouth” poster, “Nationwide/metropolitan are: Ep.1 6.2 / 6.3, Ep.2 6.1 / 6.4 and Ep.3 7.6 / 8.1“.

Other netizens commented in response expressing their disappointment:

I’m on episode 2, but I don’t think this show is for me..

I watched it because the plot is intriguing, but I don’t know, maybe it’s the cast? I frequently find myself cringing.”

“Clearly enjoyable, but I find the plot too difficult to followㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ“.

Meanwhile, others also added in opinions like:

Finally, a drama with Yoona that hits big

I kinda feel like this is Lee Jong-suk‘s top drama yet?? Lee Jong-suk appears so much and he’s so good

I anticipated that the plot of this drama would be darker and heavier, but the plot is actually quite contrived and the acting is lighthearted(?). I found myself even laughing out loud. It resembles a ‘noir’ rendition of Penthouse.

It’s f*cking fun. The pace is super fast but the flow is also intuitive. The scenes are refreshing and Lee Jong-suk‘s acting is seriously daebak. I lose track of time while watching it. Even though the genre is noir, the plot is light and entertaining.”

“The second episode was the best, the third felt forced, and I’m curious to see what they’ll do with the fourth.”,

It’s actually so enjoyableㅠㅠㅠ

It will continue to rise because it’s so enjoyable.“.
