I think we all anticipated that the new tvN drama Encounter (also known as Boyfriend) starring Park Bo Gum (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) and Song Hye Kyo (Descendants of the Sun) would do well in ratings, and that’s exactly what it has done!
It had a strong premiere bringing in 8.7% in Nielsen drama ratings for episode one which is the second highest premiere rating for a drama on tvN (Mr. Sunshine is the highest). It then rose and has already achieved double digits by bringing in 10.3% for episode 2. That’s certainly an impressive start to this love story!
Encounter is an opposites story that follows the complicated romance between a free-spirited ordinary man (Park Bo Gum) who seems to have nothing and the daughter (Song Hye Kyo) of a politician who seems to have everything.
