“When Time Stopped” has finally aired its first episode on Wednesday, October 24, international fans have been anticipating Kim Hyun Joong’s return after his long legal battle with his ex-girlfriend that ended earlier this year.
“When Time Stopped” aired on the new channel KBS W but it didn’t do well at all. The first episode recorded 0.1% in viewership ratings according to Nielsen Korea.
This is especially disappointing for Kim Hyun Joong whose dramas usually do extremely well. While international fans might have his back that doesn’t help in viewership ratings.
This marks Kim Hyun Joong’s return to the small screen after 4 years hiatus.
Netizens are not reacting nicely to the drama, many brought up his past and some asked him to stop acting and trying to appear in dramas, some said,
‘This can’t be undone.’
‘Don’t want to see his face again on TV.”
“His acting sucks,” and more.
International fans are split. Some are happy he’s back while others commented on his acting and called it poor and not the same quality it used to be.
“When Time Stopped” is going to be 12-episodes-long. There is still room for improvement.
