The viewers have spoken and its a resounding ratings and feedback win for jTBC legal drama Miss Hammurabi which premiered this Monday opposite fellow new cable arrival About Time on tvN. Miss Hammurabi brought in nearly double the ratings of About Time, premiering at 3.739% compared to 1.766%. Even more impressive are the positive audience feedback on the acting of Miss Hammurabi leads L and Go Ara who are normally panned by K-netizens for their pretty visuals and limited acting, this time both are getting solid reviews along with how interesting the drama is in depicting the behind-the-scenes world of judges in the Korean judicial system.
Conversely K-netz are ragging on both Lee Sung Kyung and Lee Sang Yoon‘s acting in About Time, though that drama has even bigger problems in re-filming fast enough to insert new second male lead Kim Dong Joon‘s scenes into the narrative as he took over just last week for Lee Seo Won who has been charged with harassment and assault. The Mon-Tues time slot remains very week overall but it looks like Miss Hammurabi is ready to make some waves.
