“Eve”, starring Seo Ye-ji, ended with a viewer rating of 4%.
According to Nielsen Korea on July 22nd, the 16th episode of tvN’s Wednesday-Thursday drama “Eve”, which aired on the previous day (July 21st), recorded an average nationwide rating of 4.4%. It is 0.7% higher than the rating of the 15th episode (3.7%) and the drama’s highest rating performance.
Seo Ye-ji returned with “Eve” a year after she was embroiled in the controversy over gaslighting her ex-boyfriend Kim Jung-hyun last year. “Eve” depicted the inside story of a 2 trillion won divorce lawsuit that turns the entire nation upside down. Seo Ye-ji played the role of Lee Ra-el, who planned revenge for 13 years after the death of her father. The drama drew much attention and interest in the first episodes but later received criticism for both acting and directing.
In the final episode, Kang Yoon-gyeom (Park Byung-eun) drove a car with Han So-ra (Yoo Seon) and fell off a cliff. Yoon-gyeom died while So-ra lost her memory. Ra-el said to So-ra, “Even when your memory has been erased, you deserve that”, adding “You also killed your beloved husband with this hand. Don’t die. Because living in what you’ve done is the real hell.”
