SS501 Kim Hyun Joong seemed to have verified talks of whether or not his MBC drama Playful Kiss would be like a bubble as his drama's ratings recorded low results in just 2 episodes.
2nd September aired Playful Kiss episode 2. In episode 2, plain girl Oh Hani happened to move into the chic guy who is Number 1 across entire school Baek Seung jo's house as it illustrated the start of their home-mate story.
In this day's episode, Oh Hani doesn't know whether to feel happy or sad that she is now living under the same roof as Baek seung Jo whom she has always seen in her dreams, and in this episode also delivered many of her lively and quirky scenes as she attracted the eyeballs of male audiences.
Also, although Baek Seung Jo displays his cynical side all the time, he appeared to go to Oh Hani's rescue as she was in distress with a pervert and struck himself across as the prince who goes to save one in trouble, and with that it shook Oh Hani's heart once again.
However even if with acting from these two like this, it was not easy to captivate the hearts of audiences. On this day's episode 2, it recorded tv ratings of 3.6% and did not seem to have much difference from its ratings of 3.5% for Episode 1.
It seems like many fans are disappointed and finds it pitiable that Kim Hyun Joong's majesty could not be found in Playful Kiss ever since his last KBS Boys over Flowers as Yoon Jihoo from F4.
This drama that is led by Kim Hyun Joong and consists of newbie Jung Somin, Lee Taesung, Hong Yoonhwa, Yoon Seungah, Jang Ah Young, Jung Hyeyoung etc was made in hope of MBC Wed-Thurs drama's resurrection. However, with its low ratings, it did not seem like it was able to disregard the 5% ratings that previous MBC work 'Road number one' had achieved.
Also, Playful Kiss does not seem to be able to be put side by side against dramas of its same timing slot SBS 'My girlfriend is Gumiho' and 'Baker king Kim Tak Goo' as it staggers itself.
