I’m all for SJK getting some rest every now & then, but Jae-Gil’s and Choco’s storyline & scenes need to improve pronto because they’re absolutely useless and complete filler. And it also hurts the ratings. I saw the real-time data for the episode and you could actually see the ratings drop every time they appeared on screen. Then jump back up when the main characters took over. Nice Guy won’t lose the #1 spot, but I don’t expect this episode to beat last week’s/episode 6’s ratings. Not a bad surprise if it does, but doesn’t seem realistic.
As it turns out:
AGB Nielsen for Episode 7 (Oct. 3)
Nationwide 17.3 % (+1.3% vs episode 6)
Seoul & metropolitan areas 18.6% (+0.5% vs episode 6)
Very happy for Nice Guy but I will still maintain we’d have done even better with better scenes/storylines for the supporting cast. And hope the powers that be do not take that as a sign we approve of those useless, filler scenes. They’ve got the data, they can analyze minute by minute, they can see what we saw with the real-time figures, they need to do something about it.
