Caught the first episode live just now and it's pretty good, there's a lot of potential. I do think Kimi is being overly-dramatic in her parts but I guess that's what her character required, I have faith in her since I just watched her wonderful performance in Kiss Me, Mom! Chris Wu is charismatic as usual. But what really gets me is the lighting, contrast, colors, it's SO vibrant and easy on my eyes. I guess they did some adjustment to the colors/vibrance/brightness and it looks amazing on HD. Recent tw-dramas don't usually adjust their color tones so this is quite a pleasant surprise. Would be better if they didn't lipsync or make the lipsync so obvious but I love the music so I'm going to let it slide...

Ratings for ep 1 was 0.61, ratings for Deja Vu really dropped a lot, they were at their peak of 2.6+ and then it went downhill...I'll say there's potential for Rock 'n' road to rise in ratings as Sunday dramas is experiencing a new low...with relatively no strong competitor/ quality drama that grabs the audience.But I can't say much because Aaron Yan's new drama is airing soon and SETTV dramas are always strong in their ratings.

Quick Recap & Thoughts of Ep2http://obsessionsofline.wordpress.com/2014/03/25/rnr-ep2-recap/

Ratings for Ep2: 0.56It decreases by a bit but it's quite normal as all other Sunday/Friday tw-dramas are suffering from drops in rating as most people are paying attention to news because of the whole student protest. It drops only by 0.05, other dramas drop by 0.2+ so this means that the show is able to keep its audience.
