Lee Seung Gi’s “Nunas Over Flowers” Is Off to a Great Start

tvN’s “Nunas Over Flowers” has started off with great ratings.

The first episode aired on November 29 and hit double digits, with a 10.5% viewer rating. At its peak it even hit 12.3%. The new show edged out other shows airing at the same time, including SBS’s “Rules of the Jungle,” which was the closest with a rating of 10.3%. It also beat out the first episode’s ratings for tvN’s previous hit show in the series, “Grandpas Over Flowers.”

“Nunas Over Flowers” stars actresses Yoon Yeo Jeong, Kim Ja Ok, Kim Hee Ae, Lee Mi Yeon, and Lee Seung Gi, and shows the group on their way to Croatia via Turkey. The show is similar to “Grandpas Over Flowers,” featuring senior stars that represent their generation and their way younger travel companion, but has in a sense ‘upgraded,’ with a step more fussy stars, a variety of personalities, and ‘baggage’ Lee Seung Gi instead of “baggage carrier.”

“Nunas Over Flowers” is round 2 of producer Na Young Seok’s backpacking project, following “Grandpas Over Flowers.”
