The rise of the drama “Big Mouth,” starring Lee Jong-seok and Lim Yoon-ah, is noteworthy.
According to Nielsen Korea, a rating research company, the 5th episode of MBC’s “Big Mouth,” which aired the previous day, recorded 10% in the metropolitan area and 9.8% nationwide on August 12th, breaking its previous high ratings.
This is a 1.2% increase from the fourth episode’s 8.6% and a 3.6% increase from the first episode’s 6.2%.
The scene in which Park Chang-ho (played by Lee Jong-seok) went to find Yang Chun-sik (played by Song Kyung-chul) soared to 12% per minute, reaching a peak of immersion in the drama.
Park Chang-ho was seen in this episode deceiving everyone and being recognized as the real Big Mouse. However, Park Chang-wife ho’s Ko Mi-ho (played by Lim Yoon-ah), who heard the news, gradually lost trust, and the hardworking husband and wife are falling apart.
In the midst of this, a new faction in Gucheon Prison was formed around Park Chang-ho.
“Do it according to Big Mouse’s law,” Park Chang-ho, who became energised with his swarming followers, said. “In my own way,” he said, declaring a severe punishment and leading the audience to believe that there would be a bloodbath inside the prison.
“Big Mouth” is a drama about a lawyer with a 10% winning rate who gets caught up in a murder case that he accidentally takes over, before becoming the genius con artist “Big Mouse.” To survive and protect his family, he digs into the ugly truth of the privileged class, which is tainted with a massive conspiracy.
The question is whether “Big Mouth,” led by Lee Jong-seok and Lim Yoon-ah, will be able to maintain its unusual rating momentum until the end. Some are predicting the next episode with the response, “If Wed-Thu is ‘Woo Young-woo,’ Fri-Sat is ‘Big Mouth.'”
Meanwhile, “Big Mouth,” which has been steadily increasing in popularity due to word of mouth, airs every Friday and Saturday at 9:50 p.m.
