Augmented Reality TV Soap Off to a Great Start

2018/12/04 | Permalink | Source

The new TV series "Memories of the Alhambra" was off to a great start thanks to its unusual theme of augmented reality, with viewers ratings of 7.5 percent for the first episode on Saturday.

The highest rating was recorded amongst women in their 40s with 9.5 percent, followed by 9.3 percent among men in their 40s and 6.3 percent among women in their 30s.

Right after the first episode was aired, many viewers commented that it was a genre of drama that they had never seen before, and many felt almost as if they were playing a game.

Scriptwriter Song Jae-jeong has a record of successfully turning fantasy into convincing TV drama in her previous works like "W" and "Nine: Time Travelling Nine Times".

Actor Hyun Bin's seemingly indifferent but humorous depiction of the character, which was reminiscent of his previous hit series "My Name is Kim Sam-soon" and "Secret Garden" also captured female viewers' hearts.

Different worlds -- game and reality, digital and analogue, the Middle Ages and the present, and Seoul and Granada -- constantly cross over.

Critic Jeong Seok-hee said, "The mysterious plot unfolded in a captivating way held viewers' attention until the very end. If it doesn't turn out to be a mediocre romantic comedy, this has the potential to become one of the very best TV dramas we have seen in years".
