The third weekend airing of tvN fantasy drama Hwayugi (A Korean Odyssey) went off without a hitch much like last weekend, and hopefully all the hiccups of the first weekend and surrounding mishaps are done with for good. Episodes 5 and 6 continued the ratings increase from last week, attaining 6.102% and 6.942% respectively. While tvN’s Wed-Thurs drama Wise Prison Life is getting much higher ratings and critical acclaim, Hwayugi is definitely not a disappointment for the Hong Sisters writing team considering their last drama bombed with Warm and Cozy, and more importantly for me marks a successful role and project comeback for Lee Seung Gi. I love his portrayal of his character and wish the writing would flesh out all the leads more, there is so much depth to be mind but everyone keeps talking in circles about the same things. The acting is hard carrying this drama and the leads need to really amp up their chemistry to sell the OTP romance down the road. Right now I’m in to see how the whole story unfolds but am not invested emotionally as I hope to be.
