New SBS Mon-Tues drama Good Casting, which takes over from Nobody Knows, rather impressed with a nobody could have expected surprising ratings. Episode 1 notched 9.5% and 12.3%, making it easily the time slot ratings leader over low single digit competitors Born Again and 365: Repeat the Year. Starring Choi Kang Hee, Lee Sang Yeon, Yoo In Young, and Lee Jong Hyuk, the drama strikes me along the vibes of successful Choi Kang Hee dramas like Protect the Boss and Mystery Queen and clearly not like her tried hard to be a spy drama but failed drama adaptation of 7th Level Civil Servant.
