It’s finale weekend for tvN weekend hit sageuk Queen Cheorin, and I’m filled with sadness of what this drama could have been with it’s record breaking debut ratings and two firing-on-all-cylinders leads Shin Hye Sun and Kim Jung Hyun. Alas it won’t set ratings records for tvN beyond the premiere and probably won’t have the longevity of viewers since it can’t decide if it’s a sageuk proper or fusion fun and instead hopscotched between the two like an awkward bunny on a hot tarmac. Episode 19 got 14.227% ratings and narratively delivered no major surprises other than getting rid of a major deadweight earlier than I expected. It’s the first time I’ve watched second male lead Na In Woo and other than being tall and easy on the eyes he was just majorly horrible – both performance and character. He’s like a really stumpy piece of wood that we audience members keep stubbing our toe on when we watch the drama.
