The many failed K-dramas of April 2022: some deserve it, some are hidden gems

Here are K-dramas with the lowest ratings as of the moment. 

Recent months have brought us a wide variety of K-dramas. Unfortunately, not all of them turned out to be successful, and below are several unlucky cases: 

Tomorrow

Despite opening with a promising rating, Kim Hee Sun’s return project continuously falls behind other series in the same time slot. With ratings dropping to a meager 2-3% from a 7.6% in episode 1, “Tomorrow” can’t be considered a failure yet, but its performance is still disappointing. So, what is the reason behind this downfall? Apparently, netizens find the series’ writing to be “too lecturing” and point out that every case in the series is resolved in the same manner. Rowoon, who played the male lead, also receives a mixed response on his acting abilities.

Shooting Stars

Starring the visual duo Kim Young Dae and Lee Sung Kyung, yet “Shooting Stars” opened with specularly low ratings for its two first episodes, which can’t even surpass 2%.  The series, which is supposed to be a more comedic perspective of the entertainment industry, stumbled into quite the number of controversies, with some netizens pointing fingers at Kim Young Dae’s lackluster acting.

My Liberation Notes

Contrary to the aforementioned series, which are harshly criticized by the public, “My Liberation Notes” is actually critically acclaimed for its meaningful story and clever script. While the series is seeing low ratings, things seem to be looking up as episode 6 recorded 3.8% in viewership. This is the 2nd time this series crossed the 3% mark.

Love All Play

The sports drama “Love All Play” marks the return of Chae Jong Hyeop, who used to woo a lot of hearts as the second male lead in  “Nevertheless”. Revolving around young people with aspirations in badminton, “Love All Play” is nothing but light and sweet, and thus is unable to stand out in the competitive ratings battle.
