The series, which is also known as Dazzling and Radiant, started off its broadcast on February 11 with a modest audience share of 3.2 %, which doubled in three weeks, making it the first ever Monday-Tuesday JTBC drama that hit 6 percent in viewership.
The most-watched scene in the drama’s finale is Kim Hye-ja narrating about her life. Her character touched a lot of viewers as she says, “All days shined for me. You might be going through a tough time in life, but you also have the right to enjoy everything. You deserve it because you were born in this world.”
