Cable Drama Strong Woman Do Bong Soon Maintains High Ratings to the Happy Ending

This drama seriously flew by faster than any in recent memory for me, from start to finish it seemed to be on 2x clip much like the female lead had extra strength. Cable network jTBC‘s hit drama Strong Woman Do Bong Soon finished this weekend with an impressive 8.96% ratings which averages out to 7.6% ratings for the entirety of its run. It’s officially the highest rated drama in jTBC history and also the one that generated the most buzz for the network that always played second cable fiddle to tvN, which has seen its Fri-Sat night ratings plunge down to human level with Tomorrow With You and now Chicago Typewriter from the astronomical ratings of Goblin. The success of Do Bong Soon also continues pint sized actress wunderkind Park Bo Young’s ratings streak after she won hearts and viewers with Oh My Ghostess in the middle of 2015. Congrats to the entire cast on a job well done and for providing an entertaining two month’s worth of OTP cuteness with Park Bo Young and Park Hyung Sik. Continue reading
