Twenty Five, Twenty One Signs Off Breaking 11% Ratings with Frustrated Viewer Reception and Forecasting Love and Weather Gets Past 7% with Mellow Satisfying Ending

Once again the adage of live K-drama watching being a walk in landmines comes to fruition, and a new generation of ardent drama watchers will take away a lesson. Unfortunately it’s that rather than a satisfying conclusion for tvN drama Twenty Five, Twenty One, which got overwhelming hate for how it ended the drama despite record high ratings of 11.513%, In this case the rating doesn’t reflect the happiness quotient and this drama seems primed to go down the exact same path of Queen Cheorin (Mr. Queen), all high ratings and shoved into a corner where the sun don’t shine after an ending that infuriated most of its strongest fans. Forecasting Love and Weather also ended this Sunday to 7.344% ratings but no one care at this point, most of the viewers dropped off piecemeal from episode 7 onward and it’s been a study in boredom since them. But it had a more satisfying ending so there’s that, the irony is not lost on me but honestly I just want dramas to be good from beginning to end and that remains a rarity to this day.
