Actress Moon Ga Young continuously struggles with every work she stars in. Will “The Interest of Love” be able to help her?
While there are actors with honorable titles such as “Trendy Actor” and “Rating Guarantee Check,” there are actors who are struggling with each work they do. Actress Moon Ga Young is one of them. Moon Ga Young has been on a streak of low-rating dramas, and sadly, JTBC’s recent drama “The Interest of Love” is also showing disappointing ratings.
“The Interest of Love,” started broadcasting on Dec 21st, is a melodrama about people with different interests meeting and understanding the meaning of true love. It is intended to show the realistic aspects of those who are placed between love and difference in social class.
The ratings for episode 1 of “The Interest of Love” is 3.1%. Although it was low, there was a possibility of an increase considering that it was the 1st episode. However, the 2nd episode plummeted to 1.9% before rising gradually by 0.2 to 0.3% each episode until the 6th episode, which reached 3.0%. Although the rating is rising, it is difficult to expect a remarkable increase.
Moon Ga Young has already tasted the rating range of 1% several times in her previous drama “Link: Eat and Love, Kill.” The drama, which featured Moon Ga Young and Yeo Jin Gu, aired from June to July last year. Starting with 3.1% in the first episode, the ratings gradually fell to 1.5 to 2.2%. In the end, the drama ended with the highest ratings belonging to the first episode.
2018 MBC’s “The Great Temptation,” starring Moon Ga Young, also had a minimum viewer rating of 1.5% (29 episodes). Like “Link,” the first episode had the highest ratings (3.1%). JTBC’s 2019 episode “Eurachacha Waikiki 2” recorded a viewer rating of 1% for 11 consecutive episodes from 6 to 16 out of 16 episodes.
Among Moon Ga Young’s acting works, tvN’s “True Beauty” is considered a hit. Based on the webtoon of the same name, Moon Ga Young got in a “Sweet and Salty Romantic Relationship” with Cha Eun Woo. This work was especially popular among the 10s and 20s, thanks to which Moon Ga Young was ranked first on the chart of viral drama cast at the time. She benefited from the popularity of “True Beauty”, but it was only for a while.
Moon Ga Young started acting as a child actress, but she is showing an acting that has no depth and does not draw sympathy. He has been staying at the level of a ‘noteworthy actor’ for several years. In addition, the repeated “1% viewer rating” proves that she lacks the eye to see a great script.
