It was a busy Monday in K-drama land with three new dramas arriving to shake up the viewing options. SBS premiered sageuk Haechi with Jung Il Woo and Go Ara, taking in 6.0% and 7.1% ratings. MBC dropped Item with Joo Ji Hoon, Jin Se Yeon, and Kim Kang Woo which got ratings of 4.0% and 4.9%. The holdover was Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul Ho 2 on KBS with 4.4% and 5.7%. It’s a pretty depressing ratings crew with the big three while the nightly ratings leader remains tvN‘s sageuk drama The Crowned Clown which rose to a new high with 8.240%. The third new arrival is also on cable with jTBC drama The Light in Your Eyes (Dazzling) with Han Ji Min, Kim Hye Ja, and Nam Joo Hyuk, and the premiere episode brought in 3.185% ratings. There’s plenty of options on Mon-Tues nights for the next few weeks so pick up what strikes your fancy, imma check out Item and The Light in Your Eyes this weekend.
The Crowned Clown is excellent ?? Both in acting and visual. The Queen is so beautiful ? I will wait for your review of these new dramas before deciding which one is watch.
You guys Haechi is so good!
Currently watching The Crowned Clown and Item . Is Haechi really good? Want to try it coz of Jung Il Woo but kinda hesitant due to Go Ara…
They dont show go ara till the last 10 min so u good with that. Give it a try. I feel it will be like all the josen style drama with good first few episode.
thank you 🙂
Hahaha Go Ara can’t be worse than Jin Se Yeon.
Give it a watch, Haechi is quite good!
Light In Your Eyes is good too.
thank you too:)
Thank you Mz Koala for a his article. Go Ara is one of those actresses you either like or not. For a strange reason I like her except when she’s crying buckets like in Hwarang. However she’s pretty strong and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing her in Haechi with JIW. As for Item I lasted 11 mins 1st episode because I was counting and got cold feet waiting for JSY to appear I stopped watching. Going back to tonight to have another go.
The light in your eyes is so fun! I like it more than touch your heart, its funny and refreshing. Plus han jimin is so pretty. Honestly I dont have any high expectation with this drama because of nam joohyuk, (I watched school 2015 and haebek so I know how bad he was) but he’s improved a lot, tho he’s like DO now, (sometimes he showing wrong expression) but its still ok for me. After familiar wife I fallin love with han jimin again. Going to check haechi too.
The light in your eyes is a fun watch. Njh has this vibes when i watched him in wfkbj which is a good thing. And han ji min is funny and all of the cast are well casted. Since this is pre produced, scenes are well filmed especially the accident scene. A heart warming family drama!
Haechi is so thrilling and exciting! And damn EYE CANDY!!!!
Someone, anyone, please any update on Item good or bad feedback how is the story so far?
Oh good I’ll watch just to see thank you Sherpa. See the hoops we have to go through to watch our dramas.
