Drama 'Today's Webtoon' starring Kim Se Jung drops to a viewership rating as low as 1.5%

AKP STAFF

'Today's Webtoon' has suffered a downfall in viewership ratings.

On August 28 KST, the 10th episode of the SBS drama starring Kim Se Jung saw a viewership rating of 1.5%. This new record was nearly one-half of the viewership from the last episode, which saw a rating of 2.9%.

Since its premiere, the drama was met with fierce competition from MBC's crime series 'Big Mouth' airing simultaneously. Starring Lee Jong Suk and Girls' Generation's YoonA, the MBC drama on the other hand hit a high viewership rating of 10% on August 28.


Media outlets are commenting how the low rating is a misfortune, as it was Kim Se Jung's latest role after her success through 'Business Proposal.' The Japanese version of 'Today's Webtoon' had also been a huge hit prior to this Korean remake.

The drama, also starring Choi Daniel and Nam Yoon Soo, tells the story of a young woman who enters the workforce as a newbie at a webtoon publishing company.

The public is proabably tired of Sejeong. It probably didn't help when Sejeong said she ranks all her friends which seems kinda arrogant.

Even good dramas run into bad luck at times as a better drama is in the same time slot, but a drama that has weaknesses is really going to struggle against a good drama. Sejeong likely isn't enough of an industry heavyweight yet to lift up a production that is missing something. Honestly, there was a time when Yoona and various other A-listers have been in the same boat. Hopefully Sejeong bounces back next year with a better production.
