"Empress Ki" Ji Chang Wook

Ji Chang Wook discussed MBC Monday-Tuesday drama “Empress Ki‘s sky high ratings on MBC’s “Section TV.”

The actor appeared on “Section TV” on December 29, and was asked if he knew how popular the drama was. He replied, “Truthfully, I’m in the middle of filming so I don’t really know much.”

Ji Chang Wook said, “Sometimes I receive messages of praise from people around me. When I see those messages, I think, ‘Ah, they are enjoying the drama.’”

He remained humble when discussing “Empress Ki” breaking the 20% ratings barrier. “I think about 1-2% is due to my efforts. 2% out of 20% is 1 out of 10. I think that’s being pretty generous.”

Empress Ki has been doing well in the Monday-Tuesday drama ratings battle, and is not even half way through with a total of 50 episodes planned. The drama will be pre-empted this week due to the “2013 MBC Acting Awards” and the “2013 MBC Gayo Daejun.” However, it will air a 120-minute special on January 1, and resume its regular broadcast schedule on January 6.
