KBS 2TV’s Crazy Love, starring Kim Jae Wook and Krystal, saw a sharp drop in viewership rating.

Crazy Love, which premiered to an average nationwide viewership rating of 3.4 percent, fell to an average rating of 2.4 percent in the second episode. The downhill continued as the third episode recorded a 1 percent range in viewership until it bounced back up to 2.3 percent on its fourth episode.

However, SBS’ Business Proposal recorded an average nationwide rating of 10.1 percent on its sixth episode and tvN’s Military Prosecutor Doberman saw 8.7 percent on the same day.

It seems like the low rating is linked to the fact that the show’s script is poorly written. The drama’s official website is currently covered with comments that point out the problems within the show.

Many wrote that the romance is too forced and rushed because the hostility between the two is so strong in the early scenes, and the transition from hostility to love happens so abruptly.

The drama follows a secretary who has to work for this nasty, narcissistic boss named Noh Go Jin (Kim Jae Wook). One day, he somehow loses his memory in an accident, and she approaches him with a lie that he must marry her because she is his fiance. Many say that the whole story is just too far-fetched and that it just doesn’t make sense.

As the title suggests, the drama tries to bring some ‘crazy’ love story, but it seems like the degree of ‘craziness’ is far beyond what the audiences had expected.

In episode 4, it was revealed that Noh Go Jin was pretending to be in memory loss. The cliffhanger ending made viewers curious about how things will play out for Lee Shin Ah, who lied about her identity to her boss.
