Being one week late to the new drama premiere party hasn’t hurt new Mon-Tues SBS drama Falsify, and in fact may have helped as the other two new K-dramas that premiered last week on the rival networks both landed with a thud. Today’s premiere of Falsify took in 11.6% for episode 1 and rising in episode 2 to 12.6%. Over on MBC, A King Loves isn’t getting any love as it premiered with single digit ratings and have dropped to now land with 6.2% for episode 5 and going up to 7% in episode 6. KBS is still doing hour long episodes so episode 3 of School 2017 took in an anemic 4.2%. This means Mon-Tues for the next two months will be all Falsify so check it out if the thriller sounds interesting, and it also cements Namgong Min as a real force to be reckoned with as he’s successfully picked yet another ratings winner drama after Chief Kim.
I’m still keeping up with the cable network tvN’s Mon-Tues drama Bride of the Water God even though the acting is pretty dull and the story makes little sense to me, it’s got a mildly addicting vibe and I think Nam Joo Hyuk is so easy on the eyes as Habaek. But overall Mon-Tues is basically yawn inducing until early fall.
