Original Post: today's first episode of tvN 's Wed-Thurs drama is not receiving good responses

 
Touch Your Heart
Judging from the 1st episode it's a cheesy, B-class romantic comedy drama
 
comments
1. It's somehow obvious
2. All the new tvN dramas got pretty average responses
3. It's fun to see their faces
4. It's freaking fun though ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ First of all it's totally my mom's type, she kept on laughing while watching
5. It's fun though?
6. B-class no, no C-class yes yes
7. It was fun, Yoo Inna is freaking cute...
8. Am I the only one who found it fun? ㅠㅠㅋㅋ
9. Boring

13. I just like Romcom dramas ㅋㅋㅋ And I also like cliche dramas
14. It is cheesy, but it's fun ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
15. It's boring, I changed the channel ㅜ
16. It seems like the writer is not good at writing lines... Personally I found it boring
17. It was boring. And Yoo Innna had a high toned voice ever since the start so my ears were so tired by it
18. It was fun for me ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I like that it's a light romcom drama
19. Boring and cheesy
20. My family was so disappointed
21. It was fun ㅋㅋㅋ Yoo Inna's pretty
 
 [Touch Your Heart]      PILOT Ep 1 spoilers, Lee Dong Wook x Yoo In Na
 

  • Oh Yoon Seo (Yoo In Na) used to be a popular actress because of her beauty, but her popularity plummeted after her drug scandal which was not true. 
  • To get the role that she wants, Yoon Seo agrees to work in the law firm as Lawyer Kwon Jung Rok (Lee Dong Wook)'s secretary for 3 months. 
  • Kwon Jung Rok gets annoyed with her as she couldn't get any work done and gave him more work to do instead. 

1. [+2763,-20]
I was so shocked thinking that Yoo In Na did drugs. ㅠㅠㅠ

2. [+885,-25]
Look at how clickbaity this title is;; 


3. [+521,-23]
This is insane!!!! What's with the title??? I thought Yoo In Na-nim did drugs!!!!!!!!


4. [+256,-12]
I was shocked. I didn't know that Yoo In Na is doing a new drama and thought something bad happened to her. 


5. [+162,-10]
I thought it was a real drug scandal. 


6. [+206,-103]
Yoo In Na didn't get into her character well. It doesn't match her too... It's kind of similar to Jeon Ji Hyun in 'You Who Came From The Stars', but it doesn't match her.. It's boring. 


7. [+113,-13]
The drama's story is too old... 


8. [+113,-38]
It's boring. I can't bring myself to watch it because it's too childish.


9. [+117,-29]
She's old, but her way of speaking is too childish. It feels out of balance the whole time. 



 
1. [+1258,-55]
Not that it isn't interesting... But the romance is a little too predictable and worn-out... Oh Jung Se and the Caramel Macchiato ahjussi are the ones who made me laugh.. ㅋ


2. [+1281,-95]
I'm just happy to see Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na on tv again... 


3. [+1093,-97]
A backwards script in this day and age.. What a waste of the actors. 
- [+100,-2]
Looks like I'm not the only one... Seriously, that kind of rude male lead and a positive female lead.. Also, it's common sense that you don't wear that to an office, and she shouted at him, "Excuse me~!!!!!" as if she did nothing wrong when she came late for work on her first day... The male lead is also a typical cold, chic, and capable man. I'm sick of it.


4. [+550,-84]
It's only the first episode, and the actors are starting to get into their characters. It's getting more interesting, why are there so many people leaving bad comments? My week is now complete with 'The Crowned Clown' and 'Romance is a Bonus Book'.  


5. [+307,-26]
They are using too many reflectors on Yoo In Na. It feels like they did photoshop on the video. Looks like the first episode is everything on the trailers. 


6. [+238,-39]
Personally, I think Yoo In Na should change her hairstyle.... She's pretty, but her hairstyle and color is always the same. It's tiring. As an actress, she needs some transformation. I don't even see the difference between her style in Goblin from 3 years ago and now. 


7. [+174,-22]
Really, this is too predictable and boring.. 


8. [+144,-26]
This is still worth the watch. Why are there so many negative comments? It's still the first episode.... 


9. [+124,-13]
So I'm not the only one.. I had expectations for this because they are the couple from Goblin, but why does it feel like they've taken a time machine and moved backwards? They aren't actors who can't act, but they look like rookies. The story feels like it was released 10 years ago. It's old. What's with tvN's Wednesdays and Thursdays drama? Are they just using their popularity as the top actors..? I hope Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na get better at picking scripts.
 
cre: melohwa 
 

Yeah, the first episode impression is not for me as well. Only, I brave myself watch the 2nd episode. I got hooked then. WWSK is also bad at their 1st episode. Only because the supportive fans of PMY like going crazy promoting them. LOL

 

1st episode is the gateway to win the netizens heart.  

YIN hairstyle is awesome btw. Kinda want to see her hair length until neck (Like Yoona's hair last year)

To me, this drama is one that I will treasure and will re-watch many times later. It's storyline is simple but sweet and soothing at the same time. It's the type of drama that I want to watch after a stressful day at work.

 

IMO, the ratings is a bit low because there is no family/office conflicts in the drama. The only family that appeared was JR's father and his story was very short. Always law firm is like a heaven on earth place to work at (with Attn Yeon kind of bosses and family-like colleagues) Most of the highly rated dramas have elements of family/office conflicts thrown in. 

 

Regarding the acting, I'm just a casual fan of LDW but I find that his acting in TYH is very convincing. KJR is a stoic, cold, workaholic lawyer who has zero experience in dating. To me his portrayal of JR made the character far from boring. He's able to to evoke a roller coaster of emotions in me. Sometimes he's so clueless that you want to whack him on the head and sometimes he's so adorable that you just want give him a big squeeze (or kiss him as what Jin Shim did :lol:). 

 

Regarding YIN, most of her roles so far are of a glamorous woman type but then she's still able to give a different portrayal of her characters in each dramas. And I love her in all her dramas :D.

 

So, despite the negative comments, TYH is till the feel good drama choice for me and it's definitely a keeper.

In real-life, there are indeed people who are rather stiff, expressionless and come across unlikable, ... I've observed that oftentimes when actors/actresses have to act out such personality, viewers/netizens immediately jump to comment that the person cannot act... These people may not even be acting experts, and they may not have watched all the works of the actors/actresses to make their comment credible.

 

LDW was criticized badly when acting in Life. I watched it and I thought he was fine and fits the personality. Here in TYH, he made the character KJR believable and lovable. We don't need to be swayed or influenced or affected by what other people say online. Just based it on your own judgement and taste. Like it - keep it, don't like it - leave it....

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

A man's meat is another man's poison.

 

As for me, I love TYH from the first second of the drama to the very last second :kiss_wink:

It saddens me  that Korean audience did not take TYH AS  a good drama, I really enjoyed the show plus the cast. Point taken that the other cast didnt mark as much  (like the dots and Goblin) but the other characters like Dan, CEO and manager did really deliver. 

But if we are talking about TYH globally, They did very well, it is MASSIVE. i just hope they will consider this not just in SK. THe fact is that the drama caters to different league, it speaks volume. I hope TVN, LDW and YIN is assured that they did good. And until now I am still longing and hoping that I can see a new episodes every wed and thurs

Hi @braunau, sorry I couldn’t get online earlier. Yeah, I agree it the article was bias. LDW’s acting wasn’t disappointing. In fact, the “cold” and “no emotion” face occasionally matched perfectly with KJR’s characteristic. Take it easy, I think the article writer just over-expected after LDW’s performance in Goblin but he forgot Goblin wasn’t a rom-com drama. Tragedy drama always gives actors more chances to demonstrate their talents :grin:

 

Yep, the photo of them together was made by fan :dissapointed:

 

I tried to watch WWWSK and Encounter, I stopped after episode 2 and 3 respectively. Their ratings were very high despite of the plot and acting’s, PMY & SHK must be super popular then. With TYH, I watched livestream in Korean language even I didn’t understand, then stayed awake to wait until 2am every Wed+Thu to watch with subtitle, made me look like a zombie morning after but it was worth every minute and obsolutely no regret  :love:

I think this drama is good :blush: I always happy watching this from ep 1 - 16. I never skipped some scenes in TYH (if watch tragedy drama or horror drama usually I will skipped many scenes) :wub:

I still can't leave this thread. Re-watch, anyone?

 

Am reading comments about how the show didn't fare well and it's because of LDW's acting. OK. This, I cannot understand.

 

I am not a die-hard fan of his, honestly only encountering him in Goblin. But I don't see any issues with LDW's acting. In fact, I think him to be an excellent actor, both him and Yoo Inna, and I found their portrayal of their relationship in Goblin and TYH so very very different! Isn't that testament to good acting? Especially for YIN - to act like you can't act. I don't know how to act like you can't act without making it affected. And LDW - he can act with just his eyes. See how much pain he was holding back in the break-up scene. I know there were comments that when he drove back after leaving OJS in the park, he seemed heartless, but I disagree. He was trying so hard not to cry (and even in the BTS, he was so immersed in his character, he involuntarily started crying at the thought of breaking up, they couldn't film!). And YIN, dear, dear YIN! She was so precious in this entire series!

 

Truth is, I don't think rom-coms generally gather very high viewership because the storylines are always either too fluffy or not anchored well in a good storyline. Too much rom or too much com. I felt TYH had the perfect balance. Enough rom to make you fall in love. Enough com to keep you laughing as you should. And even the legal backdrop was sufficiently dealt with so you don't forget that the main character is in the legal profession. 

 

From what I gathered from this thread, the show has done very well in China and on online platforms. It's still getting a lot of love.

It baffles me that some write ups blame the leads for low ratings... YIN and LDW made the most of the character given to them and their acting in on point IMO. I may be disappointed with the ending, (and yes I still blame myself for reading too much spoilers from the novel kkkk) but I loved everything about it.

I don't see any issue with LDW as KJR. In fairness KJR isn't a character who needs to be played with an extraordinary acting skill.

He is unnecessarily fit tall handsome, checked

He is stoic and stony cold, checked

He kisses softly tenderly and passionately at the same time and able to mumbles some steamy lines in between, checked

He can cries when needed, checked

So I can see LDW fits the checklist as KJR like a glove...The most important part the otp got great chemistry...

 

TYH is a simple clean cut romcom not a big budget type of drama. Despite that we can see it's a well made and well written drama. Simple but engaging and really touch your heart, brain, lips, chest, neck, eyes, and so on....:thumbsup: Overall I am happy with TYH...:heart:

 

add.

Forget to mentioned that YIN was indeed the star of the drama. She was practically carried the whole drama by herself....

Very well said.

 

I agree on all points. And most especially on YIN’s acting (I’m not her die-hard fan either, in fact - I used to not like her). For me, she carried the entire series and she went away with it with flying colors. 

 

LDW did just as well. And his character, I think, was really meant to complement the very bright and sunny OYS/OJS. So to be restrained and unfeeling was what he was all about, and he brought that out perfectly in his portrayal of KJR.

 

Sorry not sorry, this drama is tops on my list.

So I’ve started my re-watch and now I find that their choice of using Michael Bublé’s Haven’t Met You Yet to open the show so absolutely perfect! Lyrics in the hidden sections, my commentary following each section

 

Spoiler

I'm not surprised
Not everything lasts
I've broken my heart so many times I've stopped keepin' track.
Talk myself in
I talk myself out
I get all worked up than I let myself down.

 
OJS has had a hard time with her career, and she had not yet met anyone special at the start of the drama. The closest semblance to someone “loving” her that she experienced was a stalker who had ruined her career at the opening of this drama.
 
KJR was someone who, we also come to learn, has never really had much happening for him as far as relationships went. He didn’t have a good relationship with his father; he was known to be prickly and KSW said even his crush on YYR was so insignificant that it couldn’t even be considered to real feelings of any sort. But we know he does like women. He said as much to OJS, though he was certain it would be anyone but her! Talking himself out to not fall in love with her? She just about said the same too!
 
Spoiler

I tried so very hard not to lose it
I came up with a million excuses
I thought I thought of every possibility

 

And I know someday that it'll all turn up
You'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And I promise you kid that I'll give so much more than I get yeah
I just haven't met you yet. 

 

OJS’s attractive and almost addictive optimism however had her working hard to gain the acceptance and recognition she wanted from KJR as a real legal secretary. And it is this aspect of her character that got KJR to really start rethinking his impression of her, and exactly what got him to actually start working to work out at least the professional aspect of their relationship.
 
Spoiler

Oh I might have to wait
I'll never give up
I guess it's half timing and the other half's luck
Wherever you are
Whenever it's right
You'll come out of nowhere and into my life

 

And indeed, half of it was timing - her falling repeatedly, and finally into his arms (!) - and half of it luck that brought her of all places to his law firm to be his secretary. Who would’ve guessed that such a remote possibility of him, KJR, dating a celeb? Even KSW must’ve thought the possibilities so bizarrely remote. His dense-in-the-dating-department Friend becoming the 3rd most famous “Thief” in Korea. She certainly came out of nowhere into his life.
 
Spoiler
And I know that we can be so amazing
And baby your love is gonna change me
And now I can see every possibility mmm
 
And somehow I know that it'll all turn up
And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And I promise you kid I'll give so much more than I get m-m
I just haven't met you yet

But OJS really changes him. And he changes her too. She suddenly starts to think for herself. She stops being so dependent on others making decisions for her. She even stands up to her stalker, something she would never have done before. She finds in herself the ability to apply herself and takes an interest in Law. No longer someone who’s rumoured to be an airhead who dropped out of law school, but someone who could actually have made it in another field of choice.
 
Spoiler
They say all's fair
In love and war
But I won't need to fight it
We'll get it right it
We'll be united
 
And I know that we can be so amazing
And being in your life is gonna change me
And now I can see every single possibility mmm

 

The thing I really love about this story was that there was no second lead. It was all about them working out their relationship. Even in the breakup, there was no fight. They just needed that space to get it right and work it out. And they were so united after that. Neither being jealous of the other, trusting each other
 
Spoiler
And someday I know it'll all turn up
And I work to work it out
Promise you kid, I get more than I get
Than I get than I get than I get
 
Oh you know that will all turn out
And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And I promise you kid, to give so much more than I get
Yeah I just haven't met you yet
Oh I just haven't met you yet
Oh I promise you kid
To give so much more than I get
(I said love, love, love, love)
(love, love, love, love)
I just haven't met you yet (love, love, love, love)
So doy day ay ay ay, ay ay yeah (love, love, love, love)
I just haven't met you yet

 

 Both of them just really worked so much to give the other more than they each got. It’s such a lovely story!

I don’t understand HOW anyone can blame LDW for ‘poor’ acting!! And those who find YIN annoying because of her voice/looks/ plus because she is ‘old but acts young’ - I SMELL THE GREEN EYE MONSTER!! :grimace: 

LDW and YIN are PERFECT for the roles. The main weakness of the drama has NOTHING to do with them - I think some people totally MESSED UP with the scheduling and Budget - they under-budgeted and the writer/ Writers FAILED to PLAN out the adaptation and the ending properly - so the ending became RUSHED AND LACKLUSTER!!

Also, REAL LIFE (as in all the news-breaking scandals) interfered too ... and perhaps Knetz found real life events more interesting than rom-coms now ... unless the drama is SUPER MAKJANG and filled with lots of politicking / family feuds / realistic little tragedies etc. 

Besides it being more ‘sexy’, I think WWWSK has some darker elements than TYH, that’s why it had such high ratings. And Encounter of course, had SHK - I gave up after the first episode because I just couldn’t catch the chemistry between the leads ... I haven’t seen Romance is a Bonus Book but again, it has LJS.

I was not a huge fan of both LDW & YIN but TYH has made me a fan!! They are FANTASTIC actors and to blame their acting for the low rating is totally RIDICULOUS! 

Also, does anyone know the reason why the last OST was not included at all in the drama?? The one in @pichicouple‘s  IG post below?? Perhaps, it goes back to my hypothesis about some people MESSING up the schedule BIG TIME ... 

Also, I forgot to add, because of the low  ratings, I HIGHLY DOUBT these 2 will ever act in a drama again ... sigh ... :dissapointed: They are in a BUSINESS after all and they are accountable to their agencies - who need their dramas to have high ratings in order to rake in the money ... (UNLESS a Writer or Producer specifically requests for them??) 

@Hedgehogfan - I will sign the petition of course, and we can still hope and wish - but it’s highly unlikely there would be a Season 2 because of the low ratings ... Also, if there’s a Season 2, it may feature DIFFERENT actors ... so it may not be LDW and YIN again or WORSE - they pair LDW with some other actress or YIN with some other actor!! I don’t think I can accept that!!! :triumph::bawling:

BUT I hope and wish they would be featured in a magazine shoot or MORE CFs, as they are extremely popular!! YIN is already the TOP female model for the month of March!!

S2 petition of Touch Your Heart only started like a day ago, and already there are 2,600 signatures. Why not sign it, guys? It can't hurt, and it ONLY takes 1 second to do. You never know. I still hope that maybe some other country like China can budget a season 2....

https://www.change.org/p/a-petition-for-touch-your-heart-season-2

 

Also, I'm still confused why people keep saying ratings were low. They weren't "low" in Korea. In fact, it was only SECOND to another series in the same timeslot. Which means the other 3-4 shows were much lower....and some of them were from the big networks. I get that with the hype of these two actors, people expected Encounter ratings. But that's not realistic. Encounter had the famous superstar actress....

 

Touch Your Heart average for the 16 episodes was 3.97% for nationwide and 4.48% for Seoul. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Touch_Your_Heart

 

Here is ratings info, only Doctor Prisoner got higher ratings than Touch Your Heart: 

 

#DoctorPrisoner : 13 % | 14.5%

#BigIssue : 3.3% | 3.6%

#TheBanker : 2.5% | 3.3%

#TouchYourHeart : 3.8%

#Possessed : 2%

 

Let's also look at some of the other show ratings:

#LegalHigh : 2%

#KillIt : 1.1%

#HeIsPsychometric : 1.9%

#SpringMustBeComing : 2% | 2.2%

#WelcomeToWaikiki2 : 1.8%

 

 

As a side note, let's PLEASE keep this thread OPTIMISTIC and SUPPORTIVE of our show and BOTH actors. No need to bring in what other haters are saying about the acting skills or the series. Who cares? Instead, let's keep this a TYH FRIENDLY thread where FANS can browse and look for good things to read and see....
