100 Days My Prince with D.O. and Nam Ji Hyun Ends as 4th Highest Rated tvN Drama


It took me a little longer than usual to write about recently wrapped Mon-Tues tvN sageuk romance drama 100 Days My Prince (Dear Husband of 100 Days) and not for lack of success of this drama. The series ended with a time slot high of 14.412% and also on average is the fourth highest rated tvN drama of all time after Answer Me 1988, Goblin, and Mr. Sunshine. I just got progressively more and more detached from the initially riveting story line and found the drama narratively limping to a finish. It’s boring to have one big bad pulling all the strings with zero nuance other than being power hungry and wanting his bloodline on the throne one day. Leads D.O. and Nam Ji Hyun were excellent, had great chemistry, but there adult characters never reached the cuteness heights of their child story line and ultimately I wasn’t invested by the end with their happily ever after. I’m glad it ended well and the drama was such a deserving success because it was well made and well acted.
