Kim Tae Hee shone by proving she can pull off the ‘clothespin look’ in the midst of dropping viewership ratings.

The what? Don′t worry, you′re not behind on the latest thing in fashion...at least we hope not. It basically means Kim Tae Hee can pull anything off - even a clothespin in her hair.

On the November 20 broadcast of 99 Days with a Star on Fuji TV, the bickering love between bodyguard Kohei (Nishijima Hidetoshi) and hallyu star Han Yoo Na (Kim Tae Hee) started rolling. Small events such as Han Yoo Na and Kohei observing stars each other or making ddukbokki at Kohei’s home succeeded in making the hearts of its viewers flutter with anticipation.

Except...there may not be too many hearts fluttering.

99 Days with a Star is recording lower viewership ratings with every episode despite the favorable reviews and the hard work of the actors. According to Japan’s Video Research, the November 20 broadcast, episode five of 99 Days with a Star, recorded an average of 8.3 percent, with a 2.1 percent drop compared to the fourth episode, which aired on November 13.

The first episode of 99 Days with a Star started off with a smooth two digit 10.2 percent rating, but by the second episode, the rating dropped to one digit. In episode four it seemed the ratings were on the rise, but episode five showed another drop to a one digit number.

On the other hand, its rival piece, TBS’s Antarctica, has been continuously on the rise. Antarctica recorded 22.2 percent viewership ratings with its first episode and continued to drop, but with the sixth episode aired on November 20, it rose 5.9 percent to stabilize at 19.1 percent.
