The popularity of “Never Give Up” has established itself as a “chicken and beer drama” which is delicious and addictive like fried chicken.
According to Nielsen Korea, a ratings research company, the drama “Never Give Up” has the highest ratings of women audiences in their 20s among the Wednesday and Thursday dramas, continuing its viral pace.
“Never Give Up,” which was released on May 4th, is captivating viewers with a story that can be sympathized with by men and women of all ages.
The first point to watch out for in “Never Give Up” is Kwak Do-won and Yoon Doo-joon’s fantastic synergy and bromance.
The special and suspicious joint operation between the owner of a chicken restaurant Koo Pil-soo (Kwak Do-won) in his 40s and the CEO of a startup Jung-seok (Yoon Doo-joon) in his 20s, who has no similarities from clothes to personality, amuse viewers by showing how they always lack 2% in their plan.
The second point to watch is the struggle story of the Koo Pil-soo Family which has never had a peaceful day.
Hwang Eun-ho (Kim Tae-hoon), who suddenly appeared between Pil-so who lost his house overnight and has to join this project to save his family and his wife Sung-mi (played by Han Go-eun), is a regular customer of Koo Pil-soo and a classmate who used to like Sung-mi, creating a subtle atmosphere of uncertainty.
Chung Dong-won, who is praised with the nickname “acting genius baby chick” after his first acting challenge, plays Koo Joon-pyo, Pil-soo’s son, who is struggling between his parents’ dream of entering a prestigious university and his dream of becoming a rapper.
In particular, the war of nerves between Jo Anna (Kim Ji-young), the first love of the Koo Joon-pyo, and Kim Ji-hyun (Kim Min-seo), his smart neighborhood friend, are causing a heated response as a charming point that excites all the uncle and aunt fans.
In addition, viewers are highly focused on the challenge of Jung-seok, a CEO of a moneyless startup that evokes deep sympathy from young people in their 20s, and the future steps of the “Neighborhood Friend 24” app he created.
