It should get better if you think about it I'm sure not *everyone* who likes these types of drama's would know about HYD because they dont watch Japanese dramas it probably just needs a bit more air time to catch on Can't wait until the first episode is subbed though

Actually it's a pretty good rating.


Determined to break the curse of being the weakest out of the three TV stations in the mon/tues drama slot, KBS has aggressively pushed and pinned their hopes on this Korean version of Hana Yori Dango, “Boys Before Flowers“, to save its viewership. Yesterday’s premiere did not fail KBS. According to TNS Media Korea, “Boys Before Flowers” has achieved a record opening of 14.3%, an opening number not seen since 19th March 2007 (nearly 2 years ago) when Lee Da Hae and Lee Ji Hoon’s “Hello! Miss” opened with a 14.8% rating.

Viewers’ opinions towards the drama, “although not as good as the original but is acceptable”. Due to its nature of being an adaptation of a popular manga, “Boys Before Flowers” has been eagerly anticipated by hardcore fans of the manga, wanting to see how much it sticks to the original story. However, as most parts of the story are unrealistic and certainly won’t happen in real life, viewers who do not understand the fact that this is a manga adaptation will find it hard to accept the various scenes in the drama. For example, an elite of the elite college, going to the college by helicopter, four pretty boys (F4) controlling the school and sadistic schoolmates (still laughing around when someone is about to commit suicide).

But since the original manga is overly popular and has also been adapted into dramas by Taiwan and Japan, its fairytale plot is widely accepted by Korean viewers. Although many viewers commented that the acting of various characters aren’t up to expectation, most are generally satisfied with how much the drama portray the key characteristics of the characters, especially “Wonder girl” Geun Jan Di (Goo Hye Sun), the ignorant Goo Joon Pyo (Lee Min Ho) and Yoon Ji Hoon (Kim Hyun Joong) who is unconcerned towards almost everything.

Viewers were especially full of praises toward singer Kim Hyun Joong who challenges acting for the first time. Despite not having much lines in the first episode, viewers commented that he really fits the image of Hanazawa Rui. However, one criticism towards the drama is that the first episode didn’t have the posh and lavish structures/decorations that the drama is supposed to have according to the manga.

“Boys Before Flowers” opens with a high and may likely go higher. But a tough battle awaits as current champion, MBC’s “East of Eden” has already garnered a large following and nearing its end. Furthermore, teenagers and young adults are the ones who make up the core of “Boys Before Flowers”. Therefore, trying to expand its viewership range, especially to the previous generation level is certainly not an easy task.

The rating is actually pretty good... The previous article on the drama said it all: East of Eden already ahs a fan base. The mere fact that the rating for the 1st episode went up as high as 14% speaks well about the potential of the show and it going up to 18% for the 2nd episode is proof enough that people are starting to see the appeal...

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Kkot Boda Namja!
