New tvN drama “Plus Nine Boys” has gotten off on a good first foot. The first episode aired on August 29, and turned out to be an excellent combination of an interesting storyline, unique characters, and direction. Viewer ratings for the show were positive, the drama hitting an average of 1.2 percent and peaking at 2 percent. For its target audience (ages 20-49), the ratings were number one for its time slot.
The drama introduces three brothers and their uncle, all ten years apart, and all at the fateful ‘nine’ age: nine-year-old cutie Kang Dong Woo (played by Choi Ro Woon), 19-year-old judo boy Kang Min Goo (BTOB Yook Sungjae), 29-year-old tour planner Kang Jin Goo (Kim Young Kwang), and 39-year-old variety producer Goo Kwang Soo (Oh Jung Sae).
In addition to fresh the story line, the drama features indie music for its soundtrack, such as Garlixx’s “Handsome,” Standing Egg’s “Confession,” and Peterpan Complex’s “To You.”
