I haven’t seen the mid-premiere press conference these days, years really, as drama ratings are mostly so level or low there’s no point in trotting out the leads for a meet-and-greet with the press if there is no way to gain more ratings for the second half. jTBC phenom Itaewon Class definitely breaks lots of records and molds so makes sense the leads Park Seo Joon, Kim Da Mi, Kwon Nara, and Yoo Jae Myung would take the time for a mid-airing press conference. Due to coronavirus fears, there were no reporters at the press conference so pictures were taken and the questions were done via a video feed. Audiences continue to tune in as this weekend’s episode 9 recorded 13.965% and episode 10 hit 14.760%. It’s truly the underdog who can drama story that is also writing the same success in ratings.
