After 5 episodes in the 12% ratings, with two episodes getting north of 13%, it feels like Queen Cheorin (Mr. Queen) has finally broken through both in the ratings game and in the narrative. Episode 15 got a whopping 14.534% and there are still 5 more episodes left to see if it can fulfill the early on potential when it premiered to record setting highs. I do somethings feel like I’m watching a different drama that those ardent fans who love this show and are giddy over the OTP. I like the characters individually, enjoy their chemistry and banter, but the romance isn’t working because I can’t tell who the King has fallen for. I wish the drama would say it’s the personality of modern man Bong Hwan, which is fine by me, but then the Queen exhibits parts of her previous soul owner Joseon lady So Young. The show has to commit and then I can decide if it works for me, and also another problem is soul Bong Hwan spent so long trying to go back rather than accepting he’s here for maybe forever.
