K-ent Notes that Jeon Do Yeon and Ryu Jun Yeol’s Arthouse jTBC Drama Lost Has Dropped in Ratings Through Episode 5 into the 1% Range

There was always a popular bar that jTBC drama Lost (Human Disqualification) was going to have to vault over. The drama is serious and tackles the depressing aspects of life and that’s never an easy sell. But My Ahjusshi (My Mister) did it in both critical acclaim AND bringing in high ratings so it is doable, but 5-episodes in Lost is on the opposite trajectory. The drama premiered at a promising 4.2% ratings and has since fallen in each episode to land at 1.7% in yesterday’s episode 5. With award winning top movie actress Jeon Do Yeon paired with talented young actor Ryu Jun Yeol, this drama was slated to make a critical buzz even if it didn’t end up with super high ratings. That there is no buzz and the ratings are low is a double whammy – the general view is that Ryu Jun Yeol is a good actor but doesn’t suit his character, and the two leads have no chemistry, and the story line has no ebbs and flows and is just a depressing mood overall that it makes the audience not have a desire to keep watching. The verdict is that this is a tiring drama to watch.
