Awwww, the ratings dropped.   

Nationwide:5%

 

Ratings 181106: #WhereStarsLand : 7.5% | 9.6% #TheBestDivorce : 2.7% | 3.9% #BadPapa : 2.8% | 2.7% | 1.8% | 2.2% #TaleOfGyeryongFairy : 5% #BeautyInside : 4.8%

Disappointed the ratings fell but the funny thing is these are still actually good ratings for the day, channel and timeslot!  A few months ago TVN would be thrilled with 5% ratings for their Mon-Tues drama but, unfortunately, they are following a ratings monster like 100 Days My Prince so the ratings do not look as favourable in comparison.

I find the show charming they are already hinting at both of them having a chance to be the Husband with how Geum talks to animals. Im sad ratings dropped because i really dont think the show is bad but it gets compared to the original source which in every case the original is always better.

'Tale Of Fairy' Yoon Hyunmin, Can't Remember Go Doosim's Confession---Moon Chaewon Cries

1.+873, -76 Before you try to find your husband, try finding Yoon Hyunmin's acting skills firstㅜㅜ Give me back my Jung Yihyunㅠㅠㅠㅠ The character is supposed to be cynical and sensitive but because of Yoon Hyunmin it became a whining, comical character. 
2. +668, -30 Just because Yoon Hyunmin's agency made this drama, you can't change it and make Yoon Hyunmin-ie as the husband. Kim Geum-ie should be the husband.
3. +214, -23 I find this fun though...
4. +126, -15 This drama is so funny
5. +95, -8 I don't know how the original story was like but I just find this funㅋㅋㅋ No, but you think only those who read the manhwa are watching this? Why are you guys so mad, sigh
6. +67, -25 Moon Chaewon's visuals ㄷ ㄷ She looks like a fairy, so pretty
7.+49, -15 Moon Chaewon still looks pretty when she cries
8. +17, -1 It's seriously fun I'm waiting for next week
9. +33, -19 Moon Chaewon is so good at actingㅠㅠ
10.+31, -17 Ah Yoon Hyunmin was so cool today, I was so worried yesterday❤️
11.+13, -3 So fun

Not surprised that the rating decreased since the responses weren't that favorable. But on the brighter side, it still managed to be in 5% range.

First Impressions: Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter

posted by Debra John on November 07, 2018 
Descending to earth to take a bath becomes one fairy's sweet misfortune when a woodcutter falls in love with her.
 
 
Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter or Tale of Fairy (alternate title) is the strange and mystical tale of fairy Sun Ok-Nam (Moon Chae-Won) who descends to earth during the Joseon dynasty to take a bath. A woodcutter (Yoon Hyun-Min) travels through a forest and happens to find the fairy pond after rescuing a deer. Upon seeing Ok-Nam bathing, he steals her clothes, forcing Ok-Nam to remain on earth and causing her to lose her wings, unable to ascend to heaven. The woodcutter makes her his wife but dies before he has the chance to return her celestial clothing.
 
 
After 699 years, Ok-Nam becomes a modern-day barista but normal humans can't see her true image. Instead, they see her as an aged and odd grandmother (Go Doo-Shim) but two men stumble upon her coffeeshop and fairy pond, able to see her youthful beauty and fairy form. Ok-Nam is convinced that one of them is the reincarnation of her husband who will be able to recollect his memories and return her clothing.

Where do I even begin? This oddball of a drama is based on the webtoon, 'Tale of Gyeryong Fairy.' And as a webtoon I'm sure it's an enjoying read but as a drama, there are clearly some setbacks and oddities that you either like or leave you scratching your head. The pilot episode also dives right into the heart of the story, with our two husband candidates stumbling upon Ok-Nam's coffeeshop while all the encounters and backstory set in Joseon are seen through flashbacks or certain narration breaks, creating a sense of loss since you're not sure where this is all headed.

I guess a good place to start is to discuss our two leading men. Jung Ji-Hyun (Yoon Hyun-Min) and Kim Geum(Seo Ji-Hoon) are a great duo and I like how they're not strangers to one another or enemies but have this endearing Professor-Student relationship that's more brotherly. They provide plenty of laughs in the first episode while clearly defining their differences by the end of episode 2. Ji-Hyun is a germaphobe and complaining Professor who suffers from insomnia while Kim Geum is an all-around sweetheart who has the ability to hear the thoughts of animals. 
 
 
I think what's interesting about the two is that they readily define Ok-Nam as an otherworldly being, assuming she's a gumiho at first. This readiness to accept something so abnormal and to 'casually' confirm it as a fact really speeds things along in the story and makes legroom for other aspects and angles. Their relationship was already formed and established long before Ok-Nam comes into the picture so I think for once, we won't be dealing with great resentment and fuming males but more petty jealousy and fair rivalry.

Of course the strangeness of the show doesn't end with our central characters since Ok-Nam's daughter, Jeom Soon (Kang Mina) is a cat growing out to be a full grown tiger. There's also side characters who were once heavenly beings or reincarnations to add more bizarreness into the mix. And that's when the drama begins to encounter setbacks since a lot of it becomes spoiled with cringe-worthy CGI effects. If they intended to include animation, they should have at least put more effort into it but if you can stomach the bad quality then the show will be just fine for you.

As far as pacing goes, the drama is steady with some fairly decent story progression although I think slowing down just a tad bit during the premiere would have helped to differentiate all the characters. In normal circumstances, I wouldn't find the swiftness of it all an issue but we're dealing with reincarnations and celestial figures here after all. I also think having us breeze through Ok-Nam's backstory without giving it more metaphysical value or shrouding it in more alluring mystery takes away a lot of interesting elements of the story that are usually setup and delivered this way in a lot of fantasy dramas. I know the show isn't dark and fully describes itself as being a light watch, but dishing out an entirely light meal isn't filling enough.

Since the story is entirely unheard of, I guess it's easy to say this is fresh and new but I really can't make assumptions about where this is headed or what's in store since the drama is definitely questionable and juggling various story elements that are hard to envision or replicate onscreen. If you like fantasy, a drama where you don't have to read too much into things, and strange love stories that transcend time, then this might be what you've been looking for.
