I feel like tvN Mon-Tues drama A Piece of Your Mind was the similar cousin to jTBC also Mon-Tues drama When the Weather is Good. Both were quietly paced and warmly emotional, and neither got high ratings or buzz during its run. I watched all of When the Weather is Good, really powering through almost because I wanted so much to like it but never did, whereas A Piece of Your Mind I pressed pause after episode 2 and never looked back. The drama was one of rare tvN low rated dramas but that doesn’t mean it was necessarily bad, just that it didn’t hook viewers.
Rating started at 2.449% and kept falling ending with 1.214%, and also an early wrap with 12-episodes instead of the scheduled 16. I liked leads Jung Hae In and Chae Soo Bin in their prior dramas but didn’t like the story here from the outset to continue, and their acting I didn’t watch enough of to ascertain whether it was good or not. K-netizens tend to attribute the drama flop to their lack of headlining star power but if the story was compelling I would have continued. Honestly Spring Night was wayyyyy slower but the story was so rich with pathos and depth and here I was alternatively bored and uninterested in the whole first love into AI premise.
