Song Hye Kyo and Jang Ki Yong starrer 'Now, We Are Breaking Up' achieved the highest viewership ratings of any Friday-Saturday drama to air last weekend. The first episode of the new series scored an average nationwide rating of 6.4 percent and a peak of 8.4 percent for its episode. 'Now, We Are Breaking Up' is a realistic tale about love, relationships and breakups in a modern and contemporary setting of fashion. Song Hye Kyo plays Ha Young Eun, the fashion lead at the firm 'The One', while Jang Ki Yong plays 'Yoon Jae Guk' a wealthy, freelance photographer whose paths cross each other.

To give our readers a brief recap of what happened (spoilers ahead) - Ha Young Eun and Yoon Jae Guk meet at a fashion show and spend a passionate night together in their first encounter. Ha Young Eun leaves without disclosing her name and identity to Yoon Jae Guk. Seok Do Hoon (Kim Joo Heon), the CEO of a fashion PR agency and Yoon Jae Guk's friend returns to South Korea to secure a sponsorship deal with iconic fashion brand, Olivier. Head of the brand, Olivier de Saint Sauveur. Ha Young Eun and her team have their eyes set on partnering with Olivier.

But as K-drama Gods would have wanted, Ha Young Eun and Yoon Jae Guk bump into each other again, unaware that a mysterious past binds them as well. Post their blind date, Ha Young Eun and Yoon Jae Guk keep meeting each other for work. A besotted Yoon Jae Guk even bails her out of a tricky situation and Ha Young Eun tries her best not to allow herself to feel any emotion for Yoon Jae Guk. Yoon Jae Guk tells her that he is leaving for Paris and that she may never see him again. She quickly pecks him on his lips but moves away before anything further sparks between them. He is confused and startled but respects her stance and backs off.

After the event, Yoon Jae Guk is told the real identity of Ha Young Eun. He cancels his flight for Paris and decides to stay in Seoul to confirm something about Ha Young Eun's past. The mysterious past that binds their fates.
