tvN Mon-Tues Drama You Are My Spring Hits Another New Ratings Low of 1.940% in Episode 11 as Viewer Confusion Bucks Up Against Artistic Merit

Novels are a funny thing, as an voracious reader I was able to discern what was good (i.e. well-written) but didn’t suit my tastes and what was trashy but oh so delicious to devour. That seems to be the issue with tvN Mon-Tues drama You Are My Spring, that viewers acknowledge it’s a well made drama with good acting, chemistry, and interesting story line but it just isn’t the majority taste that brings in ratings.
