This Friday’s ratings for MBC drama Big Mouth was 9.8%, which puts this drama on the same trajectory as SBS Fri-Sat drama earlier this year Again My Life. An okay start but good word of mouth plus a fantastic male lead pulling in the viewers along the way. This Friday’s episode 5 got 9.8% ratings and the reviews continue to trend high, praising Lee Jong Seok as well as the really engrossing story. I’m a total Lee Jong Seok fan and what I’ve noticed is that he tends to level up when the situation calls for, if he takes a challenging role he rises to the occasion and delivers. Coming back from military service and getting such good feedback as his first project, ratings or not, is quite a validation for sure.
