[Rating Report]’Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’ Breaks Its Own Record in Week 9

Heading toward its finale, ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’ proves once again that there’s no end to how high its rating can go. As if hitting a new high of 26% during the airing of episode 18 is not enough,  the drama soars higher in episode 19 as it clocked in 26.7% viewership rating.

The success came with a sweet reward as the cast and crew is confirmed to have a paid vacation in Cebu, the Philippines. They are scheduled to depart on 20 January on  a 4-days-5-nights vacation.  Lead stars Han Suk Gyu and Seo Hyun Jin will not be able to join due to personal schedules.

Ratings for Episode 18

TNMS: Nationwide: 23.4%, Metropolitan: 27.7%

Ratings for Episode 19
AGB: Nationwide: 26.7% Metropolitan: 28.6%
TNMS: Nationwide: 22.2%, Metropolitan: 25.7%

The rating in episode 18 peaked at 30% when Dong Joo (Yoo Yeon Seok) confronted his mentor Teacher Kim (Han Suk Kyu) of events surrounding the death of his father in Goedae Hospital.  According to Nielsen Korea, as cited by International Business Time, a 30% rating in episode 18 means that around six million viewers tuned in to watch the drama. The drama leads the Monday-Tuesday broadcast slot by a landslide with four time as many viewers as other two shows at the same time.

As the drama progresses, viewers are hooked with its storylines as well as the growth of its characters. Everyone in Doldam are flawed characters to begin with and its so satisfying to see their steady progress throughout the series. People in their 20s, especially, will relate with Dong Joo’s arc as he struggles to find his place in the world. People are in turn rooting for him and are anticipating how much he will grow as a doctor and as a person. So imagine how satisfying it must be to see the selfish and ambitious Dong Joo learns how to apologise, set aside his ego and becoming a doctor that he supposed to be. Many are praising Yoo Yeon Seok for his portrayal of Dong Joo and we could’t be happier *mama bear sobs*.

If there is one thing that the drama hasn’t made any change but still made us happy is the amount of behind the scene pictures released to public. Through the pictures, viewers can feel just how comfortable the casts are with each other. They are seen laughing, sending cheeky smiles and most importantly, some tall person is extra clingy to his sunbae. hehehe…

If someone ask what is the garnish for a drama, that would be its behind the scene (BTS) videos or photos. It gives viewers another layer of excitement in their watching experience as they get some glimpses on how the drama was made together. Warm and Cozy is no exception and MBC has been kind enough by regularly releasing the drama’s bts vidoes and photos.

Let’s check some of the BTS videos of Warm and Cozy!

Video 1: (Angel) Yoo Yeon Seok prepares coffee for crew and staff on set. He is seen grinding the coffee beans himself and later brewing it before serving. He is serving Americano but he said that he can make Latte as well. Can we say yes to that offer please?

Video 2: Baek Geun Woo realizing the ‘uncomfortable’ feeling he is having when he catches Lee Jeong Joo in her sleep. Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora are seen perfecting the fluttery scene at the expense of Yeon Seok’s back strain. Hahaha.. An old man already, huh?

Video 3: Yoo Yeon Seok, Kang Sora and Jin Young fight the forces of nature in form of strong wind and chilly weather to shot some scenes in episode 5.

[20150520] Yoo Yeon Seok brews coffee for ‘Warm and Cozy’ staff members

The production team behind MBC TV Wed-Thu drama ‘Warm and Cozy,’ has today released new photos of actor Yoo Yeon Seok carefully preparing cups of coffee for the filming staff.

In the photos, Yoo Yeon Seok seemingly transformed into a barista, as he blended the coffee beans, before pouring in hot water carefully. Yoo Yeon Seok’s dedication to brewing each cup perfectly, was particularly eye-catching.

The photos weren’t from a scene in the drama, as Yoo Yeon Seok decided to personally brew coffee for the staff members who have been working really hard since filming started. He used the existing coffee brewing equipment to whip out cups of coffee, and Yoo Yeon Seok’s actions enabled the staff to enjoy hot piping coffee in between breaks during filming.

Yoo Yeon Seok plays Baek Gun Woo in the drama, and one can’t really hate his character despite him being rather overbearing at times. Baek Gun Woo will have a refreshing romance story with Lee Jung Joo (Kang Sora) who arrives at Jeju Island, having lost everything in her life.

Warm and Cozy : Behind the Scene Videos

MBC released two behind the scenes videos from episode 1 and 2.


The first video revealed the film making of polo scene where Yoo Yeon Seok appears to do all the scene by himself. We are puzzled to determine whether he is good or bad but he does look struggling in some scenes. Lee Seung Jae looks struggling as well, perhaps playing horse polo is really not as easy as it looks.

In the second video, Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora are already arguing like a real OTP. How cute! Wait, they are OTP 😉 Their cute interaction starts at 2.00.

[20150508] Stories from Warm and Cozy Press Conference

This is the longest week leading up to the debut of Warm and Cozy, but at least we had the press con today to tide us over till Wednesday, 13th May.

The press con was held at 2pm KST at MBC, and after the MC made a brief introduction to the upcoming drama Warm and Cozy, the main supporting cast came on stage one by one. We have B1A4’s Jinyoung coming up first, followed by Lee Han Wie, and then Kim Hee Jung. Lee and Kim share the stage for some photo shoots, as Lee’s character will have an unrequited love for Kim’s character in the drama.

Lee Sung Jae then comes on stage, and takes some photos together with Kim Hee Jung. Kim Sung Oh is up next, and MC mentioned that he had hurt his foot rather badly recently. Kang Sora appears next, and Yoo Yeon Seok joins her on stage for some couple photo shoots. They actually color- coordinated their outfits!

Yoo Yeon Seok is then joined by Seo Yi An, who looks cute in a white kinda puffy dress. All the actors and actresses then come back up on stage for a few group shots, before being joined by the PD-nim for some more group shots.

The cast and PD-nim then returns to the audience seats, before a long teaser clip (which the MC calls it scene highlights) was shown. After the clip ended, the cast and PD-nim took the stage again, and Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora sat in the middle since, of course, they’re the leading cast.

It is then the Q&A session, where reporters field their questions. My understanding of Korean is still quite unrefined, so there’s only this much I can understand. There’s a question to Yoo Yeon Seok, about his character, and he said Baek Geun Woo grew up rich, and so he just does whatever he wants, but he is a warm and kind-hearted guy. Another question is something along the lines of comparing between the roles both Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora had played before, and their current role. Yoo Yeon Seok mentioned Chilbong and that Chilbong had received alot of love, so he wanted a role different from Chilbong. He wanted to shatter the image of Chilbong off him. When the script of Warm and Cozy came, he felt Geun Woo is pretty different from all the other roles he had played, so he decided to take on this role.

Yoo Yeon Seok also mentioned about the difficulties having to act a donggap (same age) with Kang Sora in the drama, because in reality he’s a few years older than her. Kang Sora calls him oppa, and said that they often discuss how to act their roles, and they share a good oppa-dongseng (older brother – younger sister) and good friends relationship.

Yoo Yeon Seok also mentioned Baro (aww, the bromance!), and he believes that Warm and Cozy will give people the warm fuzzy feelings, and he wants to do a production that will make people feel good, and the drama will be taking over the Angry Mom slot (which is why he mentioned Baro). Kang Sora adds on that she thinks viewers will want to visit Jeju after watching the drama.

The PD was asked about the casting choice, and he reveals that the crew decided to cast Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora because of their solid acting skills and experience.

A few other questions were fielded to the other actors/actresses on stage, and one particularly funny question was to Kim Hee Jung. She revealed that each time she meets Lee Sung Jae on set, her character dies (Gu Family Book, Suspicious Housekeeper). Hopefully this being the third time, she wouldn’t die? Especially since they’re supposed to have a loveline here.

Press con wrapped up at slightly past 3pm KST and MBC once again is giving away prizes by releasing behind the scene pictures of the press conference.
