►►”Dream High” debuts with low ratings


Dream High‘s first episode averaged a 10.7% for its first episode. 10.7% is a low rating, especially because of its hype. Many viewers were incredibly disappointed with its first episode, so the ratings are likely to go down as the episodes continue. Its biggest criticism is being directed toward teens. Other dramas, such as “Playful Kiss”, have completely flopped because they were directed merely towards teens.

Most viewers thought that the plot line was too predictable and the drama was boring starting from the first episode. Also, many have picked out the idols’ awkward acting. Many said that it was painful to watch and agreed that acting should be left to the actors. The biggest criticism of the drama was that it seemed to be directed just for teens and Hallyu followers and that the usual drama watchers – women in 30s, 40s and 50s – would wander away from the drama after a few episodes.

The other side argued that it was interesting to see idols act, sing, and dance at the same time. Many said that as long as the awkward acting was looked over, the drama was decent. They also asserted that they were looking forward to the development of the story.

On the other hand, “Athena” scored the best ratings of the night with 16.3%, as it has always done. It increased 1% since last week, perhaps due to their special guests on the episode. MBC’s “Queen of Reversals” placed second with 14.2%.

Do you think Dream High will manage to rise up?

    Definitely! I am sure it is worth watching and looking forward to see next episodes. I am for it and can’t understand people who dislike it.

    Dream High was one of best dramas I have seen, ever. The casting was perfect. It may have been directed to teens because it was centered around high school students. The artists acted incredible for them. they may not be the world’s greatest actors and actresses but they did their best and the drama was amazing. Now a days, we don’t really have dramas with singing and dancing so, the new idea was a great approach. We can’t always have the same, rich guy and poor girl, sickness and health, dying and living, type of dramas.

    DREAM HIGH ALL THE WAY!❤
