tvN’s “A Piece of Your Mind” will come to an end a lot sooner than fans expected.
On April 8, an insider told Sports Chosun that the drama will end with 12 episodes instead of 16, the choice was made due to its lackluster ratings. Its April 7 episode recorded 1.2%, its lowest so far.
“A Piece of Your Mind” tells a love story between Jung Hae In and Chae Soo Bin’s character, however, the drama received negative feedback for focusing too much on the main character (played by Jung Hae In) obsession with a character named Ji Soo, his first love, its been described as ‘slow-paced’ and ‘boring.’
The drama was unable to match the success of its precedent drama “The Cursed” that recorded over 6% in ratings. “A Piece of Your Mind” has become the lowest-rated tvN drama for the past two years.
“A Piece of Your Mind” side has reportedly already old the actors that the drama will be ending earlier, CJ ENM took this choice for a fast-paced plot development. tvN later confirmed with a statement that they’ve decided to do this to ‘meet the standards of the viewers who have shown their love for this drama.’
What do you think of this? Are you sad to hear this?
My personal thoughts
I was planning on writing about “A Piece of Your Mind” mid-ways and why I find the drama main theme troubling, but I understand the choice made here and I kinda agree with it. I don’t see how on earth “A Piece of Your Mind” could fit 16 episodes with this pace and this script to be honest with you.
tvN drama have been enjoying good success and its rare to see any of its drama getting only 1% in ratings these days. I have just finished watching the 6th episode and I must say, I don’t hate the drama and I actually started to like it but I can see why it’s being criticized by netizens.
