Boom‘s comeback on SBS‘s “Strong Heart” significantly helped the show.
The episode of “Strong Heart” that aired on September 6 starred Boom who finally came back after serving the military for two years. On the show, Boom revealed his latest song, “Boom’s Back,” along with his new dance called, “Boom Kwang Dance.” With these new features, Boom didn’t look like the military affected him in a negative way. Instead, it appeared like his two years of experience with the military really helped him become an upgraded Boom.
Boom’s “Boom Kwang Dance” attracted a lot of attention even though it seemed like a very simple dance – the dance simply consists of putting your hands above your head as if you’re holding a gigantic ball and shaking your legs as if you’re a wild monkey.
Boom’s comeback significantly raised the show’s viewer rating from 3.6% to 10.3%. According to a company that calculates the TV ratings of these programs revealed that the viewer rating of “Strong Heart” nationwide
reached to be around 13.9% which is pretty high for a variety show.
Meanwhile, other TV programs that aired during the same time were “Spy Myung Wol” with a viewer rating of 5.2% and “PD’s Notebook” with a viewer rating of 4.1%.
