Looks like the next legit prime time drama hit is here after the runaway success of Descendants of the Sun on KBS. This time the glow is over on SBS as Mon-Tues drama Doctors has increased by around 2% yet again to hit 18.4% AGB nationwide on this Monday’s episode 5. Even better is the drama breaking 20% AGB in Seoul, increasing 2.2% to hit 20.2%. It’s yet early to say whether this marked episode to episode ratings increase will continue as the drama could possibly break 30%, but even settling into comfortably netting ratings in the 20% range for the rest of its run makes it a bona fide success in this day and age. A big congrats to Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won, who are evidencing incredibly sizzling chemistry that now doesn’t come across as icky in the adult era.
Kim Rae Won sells his warm commanding presence and Park Shin Hye’s character is better written as an adult, and overall the story line is less aggravating in the present than in the childhood section so I’m happily onboard for the rest of the ride.
