The tvN Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Destruction entered our house one day’ (hereinafter referred to as “Destruction”) and the Wednesday-Thursday drama “Living Together” (hereinafter referred to as Living Together) are declining in viewer ratings. It was pre-sold to more than 150 countries through the online video service (OTT) Viki, which is aired in the Americas and Europe, respectively, and it was the first Korean original drama to be presented by China’s OTT iQiyi. what you can’t ‘Destruction’ dropped to 2.4% in the 12th episode after recording the highest viewership rating of 4.4% in the second episode (based on Nielsen Korea paid households), and ‘Cohabiting’ started with 5.3% in the first episode and is walking downhill to 3.2% in the seventh episode.
They also drew attention with their unique settings. The story of the extinction of existence (Seo In-guk), the cause of everything that disappears, and the longing (Park Bo-young), a human being who risked his life to not disappear, was reminiscent of tvN’s ‘Goblin’ (2016-2017). Like the goblin (Gong Yoo) who wants to end his immortal life and the grim reaper (Lee Dong-wook) facing the last moment of his life, it is a work of writer Im Me-ari, who is an assistant writer to Kim Eun-sook and has a strong fantasy nature. As writer Lim was well-received through her debut work, JTBC’s ‘Beauty Inside’ (2018), many fans were expecting an upgraded romantic comedy.
