Despite ratings as low as 1%, this K-drama of SNSD Sooyoung is being highly praised

Girls’ Generation Sooyoung’s latest K-drama cannot be considered successful viewership-wise, but is receiving a lot of acclaim from the audience. 

SNSD Sooyoung is currently starring in the Friday-Saturday K-drama “Fanletter Please” (also known as “Please Send a Fan Letter”), which consists of only 4 episodes. So far, 2 episodes have been aired, though both recorded humble viewership ratings.

Since “Fanletter Please” is broadcast in the same time with blockbuster series “Reborn Rich” and “Under the Queen’s Umbrella”, its pilot episode only managed a viewership rating of 2%. Then, in episode 2, this number dropped to 1.3%, showing a declining trend. Nevertheless, those who actually watched the series have nothing but praise for it, and leave positive comments regarding the chemistry between Sooyoung and Yoon Park.

“Fanletter Please” tells the story of Han Kang Hee (Sooyoung), who debuted as a child actress and has since enjoyed enormous popularity. However, after her newest movie got drowned in criticism, Kang Hee started to avoid people, and even grew afraid of reading fan letters. In the midst of this crisis, however, she came across her first love, Jeong Seok (Yoon Park).

On the other hand, Jeong Seok, who was once a hot boy in high school, is now a single father who has to take care of his sick daughter. The daughter, Yu Na, is a big fan of Kang Hee, and would often send fan letters to her. One time, the letter did not deliver, leading to Jeong Seok having to re-write it and accidentally reuniting with his old schoolmate.

Within the first 2 episodes, Sooyoung and Yoon Park have appeared in 2 kinds of stylings – as lively and innocent high school students and as troubled adults. Despite working together for the first time, the chemistry between the two was natural and convincing, leading to an enjoyable watching experience.

Unfortunately, despite the series’ charms, it has so far been unable to draw the attention of the public, most likely due to heavy competition.
