TV: 'Pretty Man'


Article: Pretty Man's coldhearted 2% viewer rating numbers

Source: Newsen via Nate

Article talks about how the drama has a little bit of everything/well-balanced and that it's still fun to watch with all of its 4-dimensional, out of the box plots despite its low viewer ratings.

1. [+687, -55] I heard it's the first time in eight years that a drama hit 2% in viewer ratings ㅋ IU and Jang Geun Suk are sweeping historical records, aren't they ㅋㅋ

2. [+497, -36] Won't matter when they sell it off to Japan

3. [+547, -284] We have to watch IU's bad acting again? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Her acting makes my hands and toes curl

4. [+66, -16] Baffles me how Jang Geun Suk still gets lead roles when he drives every drama into the ground like this. How many dramas have he ruined so far? His only representative work is that You're Handsome one.

5. [+62, -16] They're in big trouble... Especially with Jun Ji Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun coming in after The Heirs.

6. [+50, -4] I really started to see Jang Geun Suk in a new light with Beethoven Virus but he's only been shooting Japanese otaku dramas since then. He's ruining his own image in Korea.

7. [+50, -16] Hopefully they're not thinking that the viewer ratings will eventually rise now that The Heirs is over

8. [+39, -18] They recorded that 2% thanks to the fans of Jang Geun Suk and IU ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Only the fans watch

9. [+38, -16] I don't think even variety shows could plummet this low in ratings

10. [+37, -14] You'd think this was a cable drama with its viewer ratings... It's on a week night at a prime time 10 pm slot, what's up with their viewer ratings;; Even cable dramas record higher than that.

  7. Well yeah, it only recorded 2% because it's a rerun of You're Beautiful.

  8. IU is actually really good in this drama. She adds charm to her character. Shes written as a doofus but IU makes me like her a bit. This drama isn't too bad. People should give it a try.

  9. do dramas get cancelled in korea? like 4 episode 2% ratings and off the air? or they pre-shoot and air all episodes whatever?

  13. I hate how they consider IU a bad actress. She not. She's honestly one of the better idol-actresses.

  14. The drama is fun tho. The plot is interesting as well. IU's character is mehh, boring, but her complete irrationality is fun at times. JGS is doing well, portraying both emotional and funny scenes very naturally. Hope the rating gets better.

  15. This drama is not even close to Your Beautiful. His character maybe, but not the drama.

  17. I think drama can get cancelled, I watched a drama before (a nice one tbh T^T) which there were only like half of the episodes.

  18. He's really good looking from the side but not so much from the front. It's weird.

  20. They only cancel it if investors bacl out. they will definitely sell this to japan and make a lot of money so their sponsors will support it.

  21. Actually the drama started off very fun and light for me. I was engaged but now the plot is getting a bit old for me and I'm not as immersed...

  22. really? which one? I've never seen a Kdrama without complete episodes yet like 11 episodes at least I think, thats why I asked.

  23. Its sad cause his acting is good. I just think he picks bad scripts and the same exact character.

  24. They usually cut the episode run short. Like recently with Basketball. The original run was 24 episodes that got cut to 18. Though the producers would not admit it was because of the ratings... I can't recall a drama that's been cancelled outright but I'm sure it must have happened before.

  28. IU isn't a bad actress..in fact I think this is her best portrayal of a character yet.

  29. i never get why i-netizens take k-netizens assessments of actors so seriously. they're just normal losers too, not specialized critics. there's always going to be bias and taste to be accounted for.
