Doom at Your Service Hits Episode 14 with 2.521% Ratings as Next Week’s Ending Remains Frustratingly Opaque with So Many Viewers Abandoned Ship

This is the penultimate week of tvN Mon-Tues drama Doom at Your Service (One Day, Destruction Came to My Door) and perhaps there remains more to be said of this fascinating case study of a drama. It was highly anticipated, massively promoted, and then just arrived and left people bewildered and dejected. That’s hard to do. It’s not that bad to lead me to write angry missives about its suckitude, it just doesn’t have a foundation and makes no sense, plus a load of mumbo jumbo bull crap masquerading as pithy observations about terminal illness, the fragility and meaning of life, and the purpose of destruction to balance the world. It’s basically a thesis written by someone fond of hearing own voice. At this point, I would like the fictional world to end since it’s all people can talk, or at least actual death instead of fantasy pretend death and memory loss and magical resets. This drama has no genuine emotional stakes and perhaps that’s it’s biggest flaw.

  2. It still has fans defending it on MDL saying that it’s deep and you need to use your brain to understand it. LOL.

    Still, the funniest thing is how fans of the male lead and second male lead are not-so-subtly insinuating how one plot line is better than the other and should be granted more screen time.

    • Park bo young join 2% rating club with park min young.Shame i though she was talented actress but she stuck with same type role.Did any top writer and director doesnt want work with her?

    • MDL is a lost cause. Just like this drama. I bet there’s someone on there who believes Oh My Ladylord is the best K-drama of all time and anyone who disagrees is just a jealous hater. LMFAO.

      Ha, I see them, too! Fans of ML vs. fans of SML arguing over which of their oppas is better? That tells you a lot. LMAO. DAYS, Oh My Ladylord and Sisyphus are battling it out for the worst drama of 2021. At least, for the first half.

      • How can the main leads still get nominated for Brand of The Year Award for best actor & actress respectively? Did their agencies buy their nominations or fans decide? Can’t understand how it’s also in most watched dramas list in tving app. Lol. SMH.

    • She only do this drama to maintain her connection with the director, the director and seo inguk is good friend with each other, he always casted him in many of his works. Seo inguk might personally requested to work with PBY since she’s a good trendy actress and popular than his other past leads.

      • Wonder how much they get paid for this stinker? Went to jeju for a few weeks like a holiday shoot then pocketed a few hundred thousand dollars. Not a bad gig.

    • Agreed! She really needs to switch it up I always hear criticism (I’m one too tbf) of park min young’s drama choice, but rarely of park bo young’s

  4. This drama just about like-amnesia via ladygod-getbacktogether-amnesia-getback again-separate and end with few year later. The cycle is tiring and pointless

  5. Well because the viewership has tanked continously (good thing there is a 0.05% increased from the last episode) the fact is the viewers who are tvN subscribers fed up from watching this drama and they watch the variety shows that are rival in the same slot but i think there are International viewers that are really supporting the drama and Korean viwers gave their supports by means of online ways. Well as the saying goes “different strokes for different folks”. What surprising is, this tops the most buzzworthy drama, actress and actor especially PBY in most weeks of June. There is a buzz about the drama but the viewers aint really watching it in its own timeslot.
    As for me after episode 6 i gave up watching this because of PBYs acting. I would try again after the whole drama ended so Icould binge watch it.
    I still love PBY so I couldn’t just ignore her drama. Sigh here.

  6. I still cringe whenever they declare their love for each other but for the love of them both, i’m still watching. hahaha. I just pretend i missed few episodes showing how their relationship progressed. But really, what a waste of casting.

  7. I haven’t started this show yet even though I love the leads, I hate this genre. Park bo young and seo in guk need to reunite in some modern type of show. Imagine them in a nevertheless/lovestruck in the city type of show, now that would be tasty. Sadly actors reuniting on a show rarely happens.

  8. I dropped this drama since ep 6 but now I want to watch the ending to find out who will die first. Sorry SIG and PBY, you both look good together in picture but in drama I can’t stand your dialogue and plot 🙁
    The best relationship in this drama imo PBY’s little brother and her best friend. They always bicker when they met

  9. All that talent wasted. I dropped Strong Woman which was a huge hit, but at least there was a functioning romance story line in that one.

  10. I’m curious that for one of the worst dramas of the year tvn is still promoting it like mad on their YT channel. Is it to recoup tvn’s financial loss domestically? It’s the only tvn drama being subbed in English due to popular international demand. Funny thing i-fans are lapping it up when it comes to the bts. I suppose like Lydia said, it’s all about the leads’ commercial viability and ability to sell drama distribution rights worldwide than lacklustre domestic ratings.

    • Crazy seeing nominations for best actor and actress in the brand of the year thingy. Cringe acting can still get noms. Must be power of studio dragon & cj enm. Both leads can still rake in money from CFs, magazine shoots, brand sponsorships, gain new fans in ig, get new acting offers. Not bad for a crap drama.

      • It’s the bad publicity power reverse psychology. Some people will watch it coz the majority said bad. Lol.

  11. You may not like the script but the actors are committed and each carrying the characters well. KDramas are pretty predictable so many times I watch the work not the story. Try it sometime with the sound off and you will be surprised. Thank you for allowing me to post.

    • Sorry, for me, the writing is the foundation of the story. The actors have to carry it out. And i think koala the writer has tried her best with this drama, hence she decides to write this post.

      • Koala gave up after watching only one episode. I bet she has secretly watched a few episodes here and there after that to check for improvements but found none. Hence her frustrations. It’s also possible she just relied on second hand sources to spew about this stinker. Lol.

      • Fascinating case study indeed. For such a stinker, it’s making history for being in top ten most buzzworthy dramas & actors from beginning to nearly end of airing. I suppose negative buzz is counted when compiling the lists. Lol. Anyone knows if Oh My Ladylord & Sisyphus were in the top ten lists when they were airing. Doom is the fave punching bag atm. If leads bag some nominations next year for whatever reasons, people would be frothing at the mouths and riot. Lol.

  12. Just because the drama does not suit your taste, does not mean the drama don’t have its own followers. Shouldn’t we celebrate the differences in taste? Probably for some, the drama does not up to their par but for some, it gave them something worth to wait. I really love this drama and to see some people thrashing it, saddened me. There were some dramas that I don’t like, but I never use harsh words and just leave it at that as I know some people may treasure it. Every drama was born from hard work of people and for that, kudos to all that contributing towards the production of it. There is never bad or good drama. There are only differences.
