The audience gave a lot of praise to both the script and the cast of this film.
There are only 2 months left until 2023 will end and this year seems to be a sad time for Korean tvN. Because throughout the past year, this station has had difficulty asserting its position in the Korean film industry. Continuously launching new projects of diverse genres, but in the first 10 months of the year, there was only 1 tvN movie that was considered relatively successful. That is Love Course, a rare tvN movie in 2023 with a rating exceeding 10%, despite the fact that during its broadcast, the movie also caused a lot of controversy surrounding the female lead.
Intensive Love Course
The end of the year is the time when Korean stations launch key projects that best represent the spirit of the station. And tvN also joined the winter movie race with Castaway diva, a movie with a healing flavor, exactly the genre this station is forte. And fortunately, in the immediate future, Diva of the Deserted Island did not fail.
After 2 weeks of launch, Diva of the Deserted Island recorded stable ratings, showing no signs of decline. Specifically, the average viewership rating of episode 4 was 8%, the highest point reached 12.61%. This number marks a 2.5 times growth compared to the opening performance in episode 1. If this form is maintained, Diva of the Deserted Island will become tvN’s 2nd movie of the year with a rating exceeding the two-digit threshold. Numbers are not difficult. And the station can probably breathe a sigh of relief after nearly a year of sitting still with quite unpopular films.
The high ratings also came with countless compliments from the audience for Diva of the Deserted Island and especially the female lead Park Eun Bin. In the film, she plays Mok Ha, a girl with an unhappy childhood, beaten and psychologically manipulated by her father. At the age of 16, she decided to leave home to Seoul to pursue her dream and, most of all, to live. While running away from his father, Mok Ha jumped into the sea, luckily he did not die at sea but drifted to a deserted island. Even though this island is only a few dozen kilometers from her hometown, the rescue team still couldn’t find Mok Ha, forcing her to live alone here for 15 years. After accidentally being saved, Mok Ha returned to the mainland with the body of a woman in her 30s but her thoughts and soul still stopped at 16 years old. She must adapt to a new life and restart her journey to pursue her dream.
Famous for her excellent role-playing ability, this time, Park Eun Bin continues to wow the audience with her performance. Countless compliments from the audience for Park Eun Bin. In particular, many people were surprised when in this movie, Park Eun Bin herself performed the scenes where the character Mok Ha sings. It is known that female star Park spent many months practicing her voice for her role.
