An article over the weekend discussing Sat-Sun SBS drama Why Her (Why Oh Soo Jae) delved into trying to analyze why the drama went from red hot start to a u-turned trajectory in the span of three weeks. The drama broke 10% ratings by episode 4 but since then has only gone down in ratings and the most recent episode 10 got 7.4%. A lot of criticism has been lobbed at male lead Hwang In Yeop for not having the acting chops to go toe-to-toe with Seo Hyun Jin but the writer says the bigger problem is the problematic and weak script. The strength of the drama is the unique and strong female lead paired with Seo Hyun Jin’s sharp and succinct acting, but the drama instead focuses on the love line which isn’t very believable. There is no reason why successful capable Oh Soo Jae would so quickly for the law school student who is comparatively has nothing to recommend. So Hwang In Yeop’s acting is weaker but he’s gotten saddled with a limited character. The legal cases are also presented so simplistically, solving cases like child’s play with no deeper layers. And finally the drama throws in Oh Soo Jae’s past and birth secret which is just the usual K-drama tropes.
