SBS Fri-Sat Legal Drama Why Her with Seo Hyun Jin Surges in Ratings Again to Break 10% by Episode 4

Wow, just wow. Totally did NOT see this coming. SBS Fri-Sat time slot is already resting on a recent successful drama run with Again My Life but now it has another hit and it may be even more successful yet to come. Why Her with Seo Hyun Jin and Hwang In Yeop just hit 10.1% ratings in episode 4, and for comparison Again My Life got up to high 9% ratings but didn’t cross the 10% mark until episode 9. The feedback on Why Her is that it’s totally the Seo Hyun Jin show the same way Lee Jun Ki was the main reason to check out Again My Life. Now I’m way more interested in catching up to Why Her and really impressed with SBS and its recent drama picking track record. On the other hand, Doctor Lawyer over on MBC is so schizophrenic as after going up in ratings in episode 3 by nearly 2% it dropped down by nearly 2% in episode 4 to 4.9% so I think there is no real competition left between the two dramas.
