KBS and MBC weekend dramas dominated the small screen this weekend, leaving SBS weekend dramas completely in the dust.

In contrast with KBS and MBC’s strong showings, SBS weekend dramas have been floundering in the dark. “Family Outing” received a scant rating of 3.1 percent and “My Heart Twinkle Twinkle” recorded 2.8 percent.
