  1. Kim so hyun is talked about on social media (as her fan demo are on the younger side) and media (media-savvy people behind her), but she really hasn’t really shown her pulling power as of yet. She still doesn’t have the Kim So Hyun effect. School 2015 was popular overseas but so so ratings compared to predecessors. Ruler has acceptable ratings (since it has 2 former child actors and people are curious since it was after Moonlight), but did not live up to ratings and buzz expectation. In a way, she’s a bit overrated.
