‘Hwarang’ Struggles Viewership Rating
The 2016 Korea drama follows the story of an elite group of young men called Hwarang, who discover their interest, passion, friendship, and love during their stay in the Kingdom of Sill.
Though it composed of multitalented cast members, namely Park Seo Joon, Go Ara, Park Hyung Sik, SHINee’s Minho, BTS V, Do Ji Han, Seo Ye Ji, and Jo Yoon Woo, the series struggled to increase viewership ratings and support from the Korean audience since it faced strong competition with the medical-romance series “Dr. Romantic.”
However, BTS V’s first drama successfully gained popularity in various countries and was loved by fans and viewers.
