I am…..utterly at loss for commentary. I do not know why this drama is garnering so many viewers not because I think it’s bad but because even great dramas haven’t gotten this type of traction this quickly. jTBC Fri-Sat drama The World of the Married just buried it’s Cinderella ratings predecessor Itaewon Class, already a total winner, in the wake. Episode 6 ratings for Married hit 18.816%, and doing a comparison Itaewon’s final episode 16 got 16% ratings and network ratings leader Sky Castle crossed the 18% ratings mark in episode 16 of its airing (out of 20 episodes). We are definitely getting a new cable ratings champion by the end of Married’s 16-episode run but goodness is it coming with so much heartburn and teeth gnashing. Even reading the plot developments and seeing drama stills makes me want to reach into the screen and bitch slap the mistress and take a knife to the man parts of the cheating husband. All hair queen Kim Hee Ae, I can guess viewers want her to slice and dice everyone who hurt and betrayed her and do so with class and brains.
