Wednesday, August 9th, was the first broadcast of the highly anticipated “Manhole: Feel So Good,” a rom-com fantasy drama starring Hallyu idol Kim Jaejoong. The drama was slated as his comeback after his 21-month enlistment and it looks like the fans were eager to see their star on the screen! The first episode, which premiered on Wednesday 10pm KST, averaged a rating of 3.1% (Nielson KR) and 3.9% (TNMS).
“Manhole” is a drama about 28-year old unemployed “neighborhood loser” Bong-pil who gets the reality check of his lifetime when his long-time love Soojin (UEE) is to be married to the neighborhood pharmacist in a week’s time. Not wanting to let go of his first love, Bong-pil gets sucked into a vortex through a manhole that takes him back to the past where he has a chance to make things right.
Here’s to more hilarious antics yet to come. The second episode takes Bong-pil back to high school which means one thing – uniforms!
Or a pouty Jaejoong! We’ll take both!
