tvN Fantasy Rom-com My Roommate is a Gumiho with Chemistry Laden Leads Hyeri and Jang Ki Yong Wraps Up Warm and Fuzzy Run Averaging 3.916% Ratings

My weekly date with the fox and his muse is done. tvN Wed-Thurs romance fantasy drama My Roommate is a Gumiho finished this week, starting off strong over 5% but settling into the low 4% and high 3% ratings during its entire run. It ended averaging 3.9126% which is good for a rom-com and actually better than I expected in both ratings and quality of the series. I really enjoyed this drama from beginning to end, the earlier parts I loved more but the second half was equally endearing just with less meaty narrative to sink my teeth into. It felt like a tasty dessert rather than an entire meal, but nothing wrong with that if executed beautifully which this drama did. All the characters had personality, was given their own stories and arc, and meshed well together into the central narrative, which was probably the weakest element as I never felt that there was any real danger the adorable OTP of the gumiho boy who wants to be human and his fated muse beloved would end up anywhere else other than together in life and in the same house. I would recommend this drama in a heartbeat to anyone but would caution it’s not a drama to write tomes about or probably linger in the memory long after it’s done. But it delivered more than it set out to accomplish and that’s a greatly appreciated success in my book because I’m always extra grateful for a well done rom-rom drama.
