The battle has turned into a zero sum game as it heads into the final stretch, with the winner continuing to win and the losers still getting bruised. Episode 13 of Descendants of the Sun brought in a 33.5% AGB nationwide ratings, with Goodbye Mr. Black steady at 4.6%, but poor Please Come Bach Ahjusshi dropped yet again to garner a pitiful 2.8% ratings. For a cast packed full of big stars Ahjusshi is netting numbers that are usually reserved for teen high school dramas with niche appeal. With only three episodes left, DotS continues to hold strong but doesn’t show signs of breaking 40% any time soon, if ever. DotS did leave off on a major cliffhanger in today’s episode so there will likely be another bump up tomorrow, but I hope this is the lowest point for Ahjusshi, let that drama finish in peace and hopefully be viewed as a solid drama that happened to be placed in a terrible time slot.
Yoo Ah In made his cameo appearance in the episode, playing not the medical school sunbae who is good at lining up backup girlfriend candidates, but as banking officer processing Mo Yeon’s practice loan application. I doubt his blink and you’ll miss it guest appearance has anything to do with DotS gaining more viewers but it certainly doesn’t hurt, and DotS wouldn’t be a Kim Eun Seok drama without a high profile cameo. I’m just sad his scene didn’t also include Song Joong Ki, that would be so epic and bring back so many feels.
