“Bride Of The Water God” isn’t do so well these days.

The highly anticipated tvN drama had premiered last month and started out with good ratings of 4%.

Throughout the weeks the drama ratings continued to decrease, less and less people tuned in to see the drama.

Monday’s episode (the 11th episode) scored the lowest kdrama rating to date, it scored 2.7% which was around 0.8% lower than its previous episode last week.

The drama has failed to capture both national and international fans hearts. tvN tried so hard to promote the drama as the next “Goblin” but when the first episode aired the drama disappointed everybody.

Many people weren’t too fond of Nam Joo Hyuk’s performance in the drama; the drama didn’t capture the essence of the manhwa of the same title.

The drama continues to linger around the 3%, and for it 12th episode scored about 1% higher, the 12th episode rated 3.7% due to its previous episode cliff-hanger.

So many things went wrong with “Bride Of The Water God” and tomorrow I’ll be releasing an article talking about why people aren’t tuning to see the drama.

Keep an eye on the blog to hear out my opinion regarding why “Bride Of The Water God” became one of the most disappoint kdramas of 2017.

    its just because many of the people or fans cant move on in lee sung kyung and nam joo hyuk’s weightlifting drama series they expect to be together in the next series. although im a fan of nam lee i appreciate the story of the bride of the water god i appreciate their acting skills its just that the fans are bitter.

      I don’t think the reason is this simple, its much more than that! the drama couldn’t keep audience glued to their screen, its entertaining as we had hoped it’d be!

      I think the reason was because it didn’t live up to the original manhwa. A lot of fans, koreans and international, were looking forward to it because the manhwa was very popular yet was disappointed of the new twist. Although the cast/director said beforehand that they won’t follow the original still fans would have been happy if they did. The sad part is that the manhwa is much better than the drama. Personally, I love the drama characters but dislike the story plot. If you are interested, read the manhwa and take it to your heart. Lol. And also stop claiming that the rating were low because of the Sun kyung and Joo hyuk break up. If you are truly a fan of them, I bet you also know that the wkbj had also low ratings. Peace off.
