tvN Mon-Tues Sageuk Poong the Joseon Psychiatrist Continues Slow But Steady Ratings Climb into the 5% Territory

Sorry chingus but I’ve been in a galaxy far far away from Joseon Korea era haha so this new Mon-Tues drama Poong the Joseon Psychiatrist is one I have not watched yet and haven’t been paying attention to. I do love Kim Min Jae, he keeps improving with each drama and has such an endearing charismatic air onscreen. His last drama Dali and the Cocky Prince was my fave rom-com of 2021 just silly and sweet enough to be worthy of that genre. The drama is actually doing not bad, it started with 3.864% ratings but in episode 2 and 4 and this Monday’s episode 5 it nudged further north of 5%. For those watching please share some first impressions, I would hate for a wonderfully written and acted drama to fly under the radar.
