I don't think we should worry about IC's rating because IC is produced by JTBC while CLOY is produced by tvN. So comparing the rating of a JTBC drama with that of tvN's doesn't really make sense in your context. All the news about CLOY so far is about it being the #1 rated tvN drama of all time. Reports only compare its rating to Goblin's rating because Goblin is also a tvN drama. 

 

If you compare all dramas from all Korean cable together, CLOY isn't number 1 at the moment, it's only 5th in the top 10 highest-rated Korean drama of all time of all cables.

 

The ratings that's being highlighted more is the highest rating achieved by a single episode esp the finale, instead of the average ratings. That's because it represents the percentage of audience who have watched the show. Example CLOY achieved 21.7% in the finale episode, which likely means these audience have also watched ep 1-15 (some via online channel) before tuning in to catch the final episode. That's why highest rated drama by episode is used more than average ratings. Some drama started at low ratings as it's not well promoted, but can shoot up to high ratings as the drama gains interest and more people start watching it (eg. Sky Castle started at 1-2% in ep 1 and shot to 23.8% in final episode). Sky Castle's average ratings may be lower than others, but it will still be seen as the highest rated show based on finale ratings.

 

Also, people do compare dramas between different channels eg. TVN and JTBC, as these are all under cable channels. It shows how successful the channels are in their programming. For public channels, KBS, MBC, SBS (and more) will compete with each other.

 

List of highest-rated Korean dramas in cable television

Highest nationwide AGB Nielsen Rating   Final episode air date    
1    Sky Castle    JTBC    23.779%    1 February 2019    
2    Crash Landing on You    tvN    21.683%    16 February 2020    
3    Reply 1988    18.803%    16 January 2016    
4    Guardian: The Lonely and Great God    18.680%    21 January 2017    
5    Mr. Sunshine    18.129%    30 September 2018   
6    100 Days My Prince    14.412%    30 October 2018    
7    Itaewon Class    JTBC    12.562%    (currently airing)   
8    Signal    tvN    12.544%    12 March 2016   
9    The Lady in Dignity    JTBC    12.065%    19 August 2017

 

 

As for the theory that the writer created RJH with reference to KJU, I have to politely protest LOL!! No way the writer will base our beloved CLOY male lead using KJU, probably one of the most feared and hated political leader in the world right now. As for KJU's half brother who was killed, he was most likely assassinated under KJU's instructions (very different from RJH and his brother's loving relationship). The main writer was assisted by a NK defector writer who probably helped caricature the background of RJH based on the elite political class within the NK, which may include the privilege to study abroad. Also found out that Switzerland is part of Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission (NNSC) which regulates the relations between NK and SK, hence why it's an apt meeting place for SR and JH :

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

Another thing I read is that ALL NK young male and female aged 17 onwards need to serve in the army, EXCEPT for those with exceptional talent in sports and arts (JH was a prodigy in piano).

 

Now I gotta go erase that the comparison of RJH with KJU in my head, hahaha!!

Isn't Ri Jeong Hyeok birthday is February 14 1988? Because it was shown on his ID card on Episode 2

KJU birth year is 1984 

Hyun Bin - 1982

Ri Jeong Hyuk - 1988

Whether it is HB or RJH, both has nothing to do with KJU

 

I found out Hyun Bin and Seo Ji Hye worked together in Rampant.Not worked together as leads or supporting but they were in the same movie.

Some countries are only now getting CLOY on Netflix. I'm in Canada so i had it while it aired but many countries didnt. This means the popularity of the drama will only increase in the coming months. I also noticed CLOY has been on the top-most popular list on Netflix for a while now, at least in Canada and i think in the US too. 

 

I wonder if they will reconsider for a second season if it becomes too popular because it would be a waste of good profit to not do it. Even if they clear it for season 2, it would only happen next year because they would have to let all the cast and crew clear their schedule a year in advance.

I am still having a major withdrawal symptoms, still unable to move on. Rewatching all the episodes from time to time. It's been exactly a week when we were all smiling, laughing and crying and wishing this drama never ends. Despite not able to move on, I am happy that this drama will gonna be the drama living in my heart for a lifetime. And I have been recommending my friends to watch and spreading the love of this drama. :wub:

The main problem is whether HB and SYJ are up to it. I don’t think they will do it because they are not those kind of actors.

 

Professionally, it would be a bad decision since they would be remembered as that couple from a seasoned drama. Actors avoid being labeled as it can limit potential offers.

True but at the same time if they want to do another Kdrama next year, why not this one? instead of a new one with less good writing and weaker team? Also with this new format of TvN and Netflix co-production, it would be  more like a series with several seasons, and not just the classical Kdrama. It could be a new experience for them and it will only make them shine brighter. CLOY could possibly become a real global hit with the way it's going right now. The new countries getting now access to the drama, many are commenting online that they are liking the drama.

There is no scene of him carrying her to his bend and tucking her in when she was drunk. You might have confused it with this scene? This is the scene where SR was remembering all of her good memories of JH when she was kidnapped.

How do you check top-most popular list on Netflix? Would love to check the same in my country!  I also think more and more people will start watching CLOY, whether on Netflix or even other online sites, especially with all the news about its record-breaking ratings.

 

Personally, I prefer they don't do a 2nd season for CLOY. I think it has ended beautifully, and I am also not sure how the writer can expand the story and plot without it being repetitive. It will also take some time (even years) before the writer/ production house can come out with the script and preparation (the writer took almost 10 years to finally complete CLOY script). But I think what would be nice is a Special CLOY short series. Maybe 2 or 3 episodes to show what happened in those 2-3 years before they meet again in Switzerland, what happened in the NK village, the 2nd OTP story and the future for OTP couple as they grow old together. :D

In (part of) Europe CLOY only went online on Netflix today, including in my country. It's just that I decided to stream it while it was airing in SK :p

 

So be prepared for a second wave, European comrades are going to board this ship soon!

It's not really questionable. 

 

RJH wouldn't be able to set all those messages from NK, hence, he set it all while he was still detained by NIS. The phone he used was South Korean phone given by Gu Seungjun. He definitely cannot bring the phone back to NK either. 

 

My only question is who's keeping the phone alive for a year until RJH was back to the North, and who took care of the flower delivery from RJH to Seri... Since it was shown the NIS agent taught him about scheduled messages, I just assumed that it was NIS agent who helped him with all of those. 

 

Oh you're right, where did the phone go and who kept it alive?!  The flower delivery is explainable, he probably pre-ordered and set a specific date for delivery.  But the phone... who knows eh.  And yes good point, forgot the phone was given by GSJ which makes it an SK phone anyway. Of course I'm glad the NIS agent did what he did to help our otp :)

To me, this is what special about Yoon Seri-Ri Jung Hyuk's relationship. Their LDR is one of a kind. Normal people who is having LDR still be able to at least to contact each other but not them. They are holding that if they are fated and really meant for each other, fate will bring them together again. Both of them has been praying day and night for them to meet again. Seri even trying her best to reach him by sponsoring students in music. I guess he got the message that is why he decided to leave the army and join the orchestra. It is just that it takes sometime for them to meet. My take is like Seri, Jung Hyuk too could be had gone to Swiss few times to find her but to no avail. And since it is not so easy for NK to travel, the frequency he came to Swiss is not as many times as Seri. Maybe. 

 

Yes very true and someone here mentioned they wished we got to see RJH's search attempts for Seri in Swiss too, from the stills of him playing the piano in the park I thought that might have been a scene but perhaps they cut it?  In the photo he appeared looking around as though he thought he saw someone he knew pass by.  That would have been nice for us to see.

Hi all! I haven’t started to watch new drama. Just do not want to be disappointed because now the bar is high because of CLOY! Hahaha

But I also just rewatched the last 10 minutes of last episode. I don’t know, seems that it was a fun ride watching it while being aired. All the enthusiasm and waiting especially the two weeks waiting! and I don’t have the luxury of time to rerun all episodes. Seems my energy is drained after the last episode. All the attachments with the drama is really high. Withdrawal syndrome of a very good drama that I rarely experienced! I still (try) to play the song for brother in the piano, but only the first part is fine, the second part is bit difficult. In CLOY ost there are two versions of this song. I think the instrumental songs are great also in this drama. Well, basically I just want to say hello to everyone here. Have a nice Monday to start the week, one week after CLOY ends! Hopefully we still can have new pictures of HB and SYJ and the ducklings and the ahjummas and Dan and GSJ in our timelines or YT to cheer us up!

I thought I reached the "acceptance" stage of grieving too but every time I think about how RJH couldn't talk to or hear about SR at ALL for 3 whole years I get all :tears: again - I guess I am hovering around "denial" stage haha

 

@blue_fleursIt's going back and forth for me, but I finally was able to start a new kdrama, which is a big step! :D  (It's Iteawon class, btw, Just finished the first episode.)

But like a Pavlov's dog, whenever I hear  Sigriswil, I cry every time... :tears:  I am very fresh to kdramas, didn't watch most of the classics or whatever, and whenever I watched kdramas, it was more casual. I never knew it could be like THIS. But hey, like Seri, even if I could turn back time 100 times, I wouldn't change a thing! :)  I'd still watch CLOY, as it is an amazing show, the warmest, coziest, and most emotional I've  watched. I don't think I'll ever be able to find a kdrama that would be like this - for me Cloy is THE kdrama. It's just on a different level. When I talked to people on reddit, I found it surprising that it's not like that for everyone! Every person has their own special show that they love. But I am just glad I am not alone in this!

I also think that it's cruel that they haven't seen each other for 3 years, and I wish they would indicate that SR was able to send some sort of message to RJH, since he was able to go through all the trouble for her with the messages. I know it's kind of implied that he is just happy that she is safe and sound in SK, but it must be incredibly tough not to see each other for that long. In episode 7, right before JH kissed SR,  she said "I wanted to protect you too", which is why JH was sooo grateful he couldn't even control himself and kissed her. (My favourite kiss in CLOY! Yes, I rate it higher that swiss kiss and goodbye kiss in ep9). For JH it does matter when she does things or him. So I would think that she should have send a message to him, considering she was willing to cross the NK's border for him in episode 16, even though there were guns pointing at her. I think it's a bit out of character for SR to send the messages to the ducklings, the ahjummas but not JH? C'mon! In fact, I wouldn't mind if the roles were reversed, if SR would send messages to JH and learn herself how to be on her own and stay happy, even given the situation. And having faith in their love. I feel like it would be important to establish her mental health, because all the way until episode 16 she was in a pretty bad shape. In fact, the only time she was happy, was in NK! So I'd like her to be able to create her own happiness in her space, without JH's help. In that sense, I actually am not worried about Seo Dan, by the end of the show she was free and self-sufficient character, and the more I think about it, the more I realize that out of all the characters she got the best gift of GSJ love, which taught her to completely let go. it's an important lesson, and I am not worried about SD's future. She will be fine. 

 

Another point, I think they clarified the fact that SR is not pregnant to keep the hype going. At this point SR and JH are like (fictional) celebrities, with rumours and all... :D So as long as the papers are writing about them, Cloy will get additional views..Which doesn't hurt the show. But yeah, kinda cruel to the fans that believed in the pregnancy on the pics. I wasn't one of them, so it's fine for me (it didn't matter,as long as  the two of them are together), but I get the frustration.

I think the story is most likely over.

 

HB and SYJ are seasoned actors and as @INeedAFan mentioned, not likely to want to be pigeonholed as the characters Seri and Jung Hyeok.

 

Usually actors will choose roles which are different from their previous characters to show their diversity.

I'm not sure if anyone has talked about this in this thread, this might just be a coincident but I think the writer might have built RJH based on a real life person, Kim Jong Un. I'm not sure if it's ok to talk about him here but Admin/Moderator, please remove this part if it violates the rules.

 

Similarities between KJU and RJH:

- Both born in 1982

- Both are the 2nd son in the family 

- Both studied abroad in Switzerland 

- Both had to go back to serve in the army due to family duties

- Both had a brother who was killed (KJU's half brother)

- KJU's wife's last name is "Ri" :)) 

 

Some were speculating KJU was also musically talented but all sources I've read so far only talk about him being a basketball fanatic so that's the only thing that doesn't match at the moment.

I can't believe I just see a comparison between one of the world's worst dictator and the best K-drama's hero till date...

:crazy:

 

KJU was born around 1983-ish (his age is actually unknown but it's been speculated that he is made older than he actually is... I learnt about his closest-to-real-birth year from a KR friend who was taking Inter-Korean lessons with me) while RJH was born in 1988 (it's been discussed several times in the thread)... KJU was not called back to serve military, but because his father was ill and he needed to start the path toward leadership early (that means: party, military, Kim Il-Sung Uni education, etc...). Also, surname "Ri" is about as common as "Kim" or "Lee" in Korea.

 

KJU doesn't come an inch closer to RJH's character depiction (perhaps only the fact that they're North Koreans who studied in Switzerland...but then again, it's pretty common for North Korean's elite children to do so)...and no way anyone would think KJU is as noble as RJH's characters are..that guy is a dictator and a human right's violator who would purge his own uncle or power consolidation... TT_TT

While it's possible from the perspective of production and profit and Netflix format...and perhaps the casts' schedule could be arranged way in advance...

 

What do you expect the writer team to do in the second half? 

They could not even address political issues related to RJH's citizenship and all plot holes about the leads' living condition in more than 90-minutes-long and 16 episodes... They would stuck at the same issue again and again...

 

Of course, as international viewers we wouldn't have to care about domestic or political things...but the drama is still a South Korean drama and they already had to go through such pain (permit, controversy, etc etc) and splurged so much money only to depict North Korea in the drama...

I don’t think it will happened. Romance genre is usually do not have seasons in SK. I don’t like too that kdrama now following Us style with seasons but if a crime thrillers like Voice I cam understand.  Even this writer is not the type who wrote same story for different seasons. She has been writing this beautiful story for 11 years, creating season 2 will make both her dramas being compared side by side and it’s not good for her reputation. 
 

I don’t think HB-SYJ will take part if there is season 2. They will do another drama/movie together but not for season 2. HB already gear up for his next movie n i bet SYJ has got few scripts to read through. She is a A list movie star which most of her movies are blockbuster. I bet many movie directors is waiting for her to be free. 
 

why we need season 2 when this drama ends beautifully. It gives us the happy ending and let us have our own imagination of their life after. Just imagine if we get season 2 but the storyline is a flop and a mess? It is will be a huge disappointment

I don’t think Netflix has ever released such information. However, it publishes the most popular shows at the end of the year (e.g. in SK). In 2019, CLOY was in the top 10 with only 6 episodes.
