K-Drama “Crash Course In Romance” Hits Its Highest Ratings Ever

Here’s how it compared to “The World Of The Married.”

K-Drama Crash Course In Romance has been on Netflix‘s top-watched list for weeks. The show started as a sleeper, with many being unimpressed by the initial slow pace. Veteran actors Jung Kyung Ho and Jeon Do Yeon also initially failed to draw in younger audiences despite their strong talent, compared to the usual idol stars or young visual actors. But the quirky, comedic, yet touching K-Drama is knocking on the hearts of many, as proven by the increasing viewer ratings.

Starting with a 4.044% national rating, the tvN K-Drama had a good start. Comparing it to South Korea’s highest-rated cable drama, The World Of The Married, which started with 6.26%, it did fairly. Crash Course in Romance‘s ratings increased with each episode, going from 5.819% in episode two to 9.145% in episode five. The show rounded off at its highest, 10.978% nationwide, in episode six, it’s latest. In Seoul, the ratings were even higher at 12.03%. Comparatively, The World Of The Married‘s sixth episode mark hit 18.816% nationwide.

Crash Course in Romance is totally worth watching if you like the light-hearted enemies-to-lovers type of tropes. Star lecturer Choi Chi Yeol (Jung Kyung Ho) strikes a deal with the side-dish store owner Nam Haeng Seon (Jeon Do Yeon). He will tutor her niece if she provides him with food daily. After a traumatic incident, he can barely stomach food, but strangely, hers does wonders. Later we learn that it is because he used to be comforted by Nam Haeng Seon’s family restaurant when he was training to become a teacher.

We also get a delicious side story of a teen love triangle between Nam Haeng Seon’s niece, Hae Yi (Roh Yoon Seo), best friend Sun Jae (Lee Chae Min), and trouble student Geon Hu (Lee Min Jae).

If that doesn’t convince you to get into it, we don’t know what will! The show airs every Saturday and Sunday.
