Warning- there are spoilers for the first ten episodes of ‘To the Beautiful You‘ ahead!

Due to what is either poor planning or unfortunate timing, the idol-laden KBS drama ‘To the Beautiful You’ has been struggling to gain viewers, consistently coming last in broadcast ratings for its Wednesday and Thursday night slots.This may be due to premiering during the final episodes of the wildly-popular ‘Bridal Mask‘ (KBS2), and now running at the same time as another popular drama, ‘Arang and the Magistrate‘ (MBC).In addition, this drama runs late at night, even though it is targeted at a younger demographic of viewers and should probably be playing a little earlier in the evening.

TV Guide [Drama Edition]: SBS’s “To the Beautiful You” – Ep. 11

Official Synopsis:
This drama draws on Hisaya Nakajo‘s manga series “Hana Kimi“ that was published by Hakusensha from 1996 to 2004. The Korean interpretation centers on Goo Jae Hee (Sulli), a Korean girl who live in the States, but transfers to an all-boys school in Korea.

Jae Hee decides on the transfer after watching a track and field competition on TV, and becomes inspired by high-jump athlete, Kang Tae Joon (Minho). She begins to idolize the young athlete and eventually transfers to Korea to go to the same school after he experiences an injury that may potentially end his athletic career.

Watch Out! Idols in October Dramas

It’s October, and the three main broadcasting companies have fielded new dramas. KBS2’s “Future Choice” starts on October 14, and SBS’ “The Heirs” and MBC’s “Medical Top Team” started on October 9. While all three dramas have their own charm, they all happen to have one thing in common – idol group members with major roles.

“Future Choice” Jung Yong Hwa

Four-member band CNBlue’s leader and main vocalist Jung Yong Hwa (25 years old) has a leading role for the third time. Prior to CNBlue’s Korean debut in 2009, he played Kang Shin Woo in SBS’ “You’re Beautiful,” earning him the nickname “Towel Guy.” He then went on to play male lead Lee Shin in MBC’s “Heartstrings.” In “Future Choice,” he plays the role of Park Se Joo, disguising himself as a maknae VJ. Acting alongside the likes of Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Dong Gun, and Han Chae Ah, Jung Yong Hwa will show off dual sides with his gentle charm as a rookie VJ and another side as a charismatic, cold chaebol heir.
