GOT7’s Jinyoung’s New Drama “He Is Psychometric” Premieres Amidst Stiff Competition From “Radiant”
tvN’s “He is Psychometric” has officially joined the Monday-Tuesday drama ratings battle!
The March 11 premiere of the new drama, which is described as a “romantic comedy disguised as a thriller,” introduced viewers to its protagonist Yi Ahn, an accident-prone young man with supernatural powers (played by GOT7’s Jinyoung). Yi Ahn developed the ability to see other people’s memories through touch after surviving a mysterious fire at an apartment building 11 years prior. Meanwhile, fellow survivor Kang Sung Mo (played by Kim Kwon) has since become a prosecutor in the hopes of finding the arsonist responsible for the incident.
The premiere also featured the first meeting of Yi Ahn and Yoon Jae In, a new transfer student at his school (played by Shin Ye Eun) who is hiding a closely-guarded secret.
According to Nielsen Korea, the first episode of “He is Psychometric” scored an average viewership rating of 2.9 percent. Meanwhile, JTBC’s time-travel drama “Radiant” stayed strong with an average nationwide rating of 7.7 percent, making it the most-watched drama on any network that evening.
SBS’s “Haechi” scored average ratings of 6.5 percent and 7.5 percent for the night, while KBS 2TV’s “My Lawyer, Mr. Joe 2” followed close behind with ratings of 6.9 percent and 5.2 percent during the same time slot. MBC’s “The Item” trailed with average viewership ratings of 3.2 percent and 3.6 percent for the evening.
