MBC’s daily drama “Oh Ja Ryong Is Coming,” starring Lee Jang Woo and Oh Yeon Seo, has recorded its highest rating yet with its latest episode. According to AGB Nielsen, last night’s episode achieved 12.5%, a 1.3% increase from the night before.
Many are speculating that the jump in ratings was due to the news of its lead co-stars dating. On January 3, local media “Sports Seoul” released photos of Lee Jang Woo and Oh Yeon Seo during a date. Following the report, the actress’s agency confirmed their romantic relationship.
In “Oh Ja Ryong Is Coming,” Lee Jang Woo plays the role of a brave and energetic man Oh Ja Ryung, while Oh Yeon Seo plays the tomboy Na Gong Ju. The plot revolves around two men, one of which who marries into the family for money. The other, a kind but unemployed man played by Lee Jang Woo, goes on a mission to protect his in-laws for his wife whom he loves dearly. The series is penned by writer Kim Sa Kyung, who wrote several hits like “Loving You a Thousand Times” and “My Love By My Side.”
Meanwhile, KBS’s “Be Strong, Mr. Kim” and SBS’s “Birth of a Family” recorded 28.8% and 8.9% respectively.
