  8. 8 : Ummi Says:

    Wait, this is an SBS drama with these ratings? I understand that it airs late at night, but still, this is SBS, what’s going on?

  9. 9 : OK OK OK Says:

    i have not watch. don’t know nice or not.
    maybe its bc its 30 minutes drama, its short, its after midnight when most people going to sleep

    For me, i will rather wait till the drama completes. 😛

  10. 10 : OK OK OK Says:

    Sorry, its 2 episodes per day but actually its 30 mins + 30 mins = 1 hour
    still you needs about 3 months…. that s long for after midnight drama

  11. 11 : Pedro Azinhais Mendes - Brasil Says:

    really ……the first and the second episodes are very emotional, very impressive…I hope it continue like that..thank you

  12. 12 : Dee dee Says:

    How does rating work is it the less the better

  13. 13 : Richard Johnson Says:

    Dee dee @12. It’s a measure of percent viewership. Higher is better. However, no way will a drama have a large viewership after midnight. Even 11 pm is a tough slot — the truly excellent “Nine” was on at 11 pm, for instance, and peaked at about 2%, albeit on tvN, a cable channel. For all we can tell, everyone awake and watching TV on Saturday night might be watching this particular show but 98% of potential watchers are asleep. So “Rating” can have nothing to do with how people rate a show. In general, though, if “Ratings” go up over time, viewers seem to like a show. If they go down, some obviously don’t.

  14. 14 : Stevenly Law Says:

    Is there anything wrong in the rating? Up to Aug 8, there are only 10 episodes.

  15. 15 : OMG Says:

    what the hell is it? the ratings are poor like blood etc. that the ratings are only one digit.

  16. 16 : OMG Says:

    30 episodes now become 20 episodes..my ranking for this drama is 50 above.

  17. 17 : gcblods98 Says:

    You forgot another cameo lol. Kim Junho (the gag concert comedian) made appearance on episode 20. add him thereeee lol

  18. 18 : Pedro Azinhais Mendes - Brasil Says:

    Fantastic, lovely, thank you

  19. 19 : OK OK OK Says:

    Since its a complete drama, I will watch when there is time. My sister says its interesting 🙂

  20. 20 : Tria_mind Says:

    Very sweet drama, tell me about sweet relationship between customer in that restaurant.
    I recom this drma 4 U.

  21. 21 : トトロ 一九九九 Says:

    I loved this drama. ❤️ Great stories. Great acting. I hope there will be a second season. Thanks to this drama, I was introduced to new, less mainstream, delicious Korean foods! 😄😋
