I don’t think jTBC was expecting Saturday mature college romance drama Nevertheless to do gangbuster ratings but the webtoon was popular and a drama adaption ought to be a little bit more resonant with viewers. But alas the ratings continue to decrease though it’s just a little drop in episode 3 to 1.173%, and the network probably will be happy if it doesn’t go below 1% from now on out. The critique is less on acting now since those who can act will and those who can’t is what we have to work with, so now the viewers are just not engaging with this story. The cool dangerous player dude and the still innocent (emotionally) female lead who can’t help but be attracted to fire, the drama continues to be very sexually open and the flirting is less K-drama and more late night television level and it’s just not working for the audience it seems. If the viewer doesn’t like or connect with either lead character, then there isn’t much to keep watching for. Ultimately it’s probably that the drama was hyped up more so than the target audience was out there for it thanks to combining the two buzziest male and female young faces this year Song Kang and Han So Hee when really this drama was best aired on a streaming network where the niche core viewer age group resides.
