Uee’s Comeback Drama ‘Live Your Own Life’ Records Low Ratings
After a year of hiatus, Uee is finally back on primetime with the new lead drama “Live Your Own Life,” which made its debut on September 16. Despite occupying the weekend slots, the series started with a disappointing rating.
Based on the data gathered and released by Nielsen Korea, the first episode of the KBS drama recorded a viewership rating of 16.5 percent.
As a result, the KBS weekend series continued to start with low ratings in the 10 percent range, from the previous work “The Real Has Come” to the follow-up series “Live Your Own Life.”
Meanwhile, episode 2 of the ongoing drama garnered 18.4 percent and was able to record as the most-watched program of any kind to air on Sunday in Korea.

Will ‘Live Your Own Life’ Be Able to Surpass Its Pilot Week Ratings?
Uee who had already headlined a weekend series “My Only One,” which was an instant hit is receiving expectations from the crowd as she might be an instrument to increase the drama’s ratings as she takes the female lead role in “Live Your Own Life.”
Despite recording low ratings, attention is focused on whether viewership would rise in the next episodes.
Aside from Uee, the drama stars Ha Joon, who is making waves in the drama industry as he also appears in the trending fantasy-romance series “Destined With You” alongside Jo Bo Ah and Rowoon.
As Uee and Ha Joon joined forces for the first time, many are also anticipating their chemistry and what kind of performance they will bring in their first on-screen collaboration.
“Live Your Own Life” introduced Hyo Sim’s family members. Meanwhile, Tae Ho (Ha Joon) returned to Korea to find his missing grandmother, and reunited with his mother in an intense atmosphere, raising viewers’ curiosity about the narrative’s developments.
