The new SBS drama “The Girl Who Sees Smells” is riding the Korean wave throughout Asia, and particularly building up a large fan base in China.
The drama tells the story of a girl who gains the ability to see scents in the air (played by Shin Se Kyung), and a detective who is unable to feel anything at all (played by JYJ‘s Park Yoo Chun). It’s a mixture of genres, with elements of romantic comedy and a lot of mystery and suspense.
After its first episode was aired, “The Girl Who Sees Smells” became the highest ranking drama on major portal sites in China. By April 8, before the third episode was aired, the first two episodes had already been watched over 200 million times on the Chinese site Weibo and had received just shy of 500,000 comments from fans!
