The drama Hush premiered with a whole other level of empathy.
JTBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama Hush aired its first episode yesterday and received rave reviews. Against the backdrop of a newspaper company, the drama realistically and delightfully depicted newspaper reporters and their everyday struggles, problems, and ethical dilemmas.
Hwang Jung Min and YoonA’s passionate performances added depth to the story. Hwang Jung Min’s deft portrayal of humane reporter Han Joon Hyun was enchanting and YoonA’s new transformation also caught the attention. Their hard work was followed by netizens’ enthusiastic responses. The first episode recorded 3.4% ratings nationwide and 4.1% in the Seoul metropolitan area (based on Nielsen Korea), signaling a pleasant start.
Hush is expected to tell a story that anyone can relate to. The sight of nervous interns who wish to be full-time employees one day and salaried reporters who compromise with the tough reality draws sympathy.
