JTBC’s new drama “Chocolate” is off to a promising start!
“Chocolate” is a new melodrama about the love story that unfolds between Lee Kang, a cold and emotionally closed-off neurosurgeon (played by Yoon Kye Sang), and Moon Cha Young, a warm and compassionate chef (played by Ha Ji Won). After reuniting at a hospice, the two slowly begin to heal each other’s wounds through cooking.
According to Nielsen Korea, the November 29 premiere of “Chocolate” scored average viewership ratings of 3.475 percent nationwide and 4.243 percent in the Seoul metropolitan area. Ratings for the drama’s first broadcast fell just short of those achieved by the finale of its predecessor “My Country,” which previously occupied the time slot (and ended on a nationwide average of 3.951 percent).
The second episode of “Chocolate” will air on November 30 at 10:50 p.m. KST.
