tvN Mon-Tues Drama A Piece of Your Mind with Jung Hae In and Chae Soo Bin Wraps Up Early in 12th Episode with 1.214% Ratings

The drama was one of rare tvN low rated dramas but that doesn’t mean it was necessarily bad, just that it didn’t hook viewers.

Rating started at 2.449% and kept falling ending with 1.214%, and also an early wrap with 12-episodes instead of the scheduled 16.

K-netizens tend to attribute the drama flop to their lack of headlining star power but if the story was compelling I would have continued.
