So, in the end, they reached the 1% mark. Even scarier is that there are still so many episodes left, so this might not even be their worst rating. There are 16 episodes in all.
No one of them can act.
At some point, I watched the replay, and in short, it was just boring… Someone said that Kim Sejeong‘s acting is too “I’m acting how I’m going to act now,” so I just changed the channel.
For SBS’s Friday-Saturday show to reach 1%.. hul..
No matter what she does, Kim Sejeong reminds me of Hyeri. I only see her as Kim Sejeong.
Before we can say we can trust Kim Sejeong, we have to say that her acting in all of her works is too similar and she has no charms in this one.
Can we stop making Japanese remakes? ㅋ It doesn’t fit with our country, and we’ve seen cases like this many times. Why are we still making remakes?
The first drama was good, but this one doesn’t have the same feel.
I watched the replay, but it seems like they are trying to make us feel sad, so I changed the channel.
I always say this about remakes: If you’re going to do it, please do it right. Please also choose the work that needs to be fixed. The original work isn’t even that well-known, and it’s just a simple drama about healing, so what gives? There are too many holes in the story. The conversations are also boring. The plot doesn’t make sense. The characters don’t have any charm. I couldn’t watch more than episode 4. The actors aren’t guilty, but the writer needs to calm down and get a grip on things… I’m really, really sad.
