“30 But 17” Premieres Strongly At The Top Of Its Time Slot In Viewership Ratings
New dramas mean a new playing field!
SBS’s “30 but 17” made its premiere on July 23 and brought in ratings of 5.7 percent and 7.1 percent nationwide with a peak at 9.2 percent, according to Nielsen Korea.
Higher than the ratings of both the premiere and finale of SBS’s previous Monday-Tuesday drama “Wok of Love” — 6.4 percent and 7.0 percent respectively — “30 but 17” is off to a notably solid start at the top of its time slot. Related terms to the drama also placed No. 1 and No. 2 on realtime search rankings during its premiere.
The first broadcast of “30 but 17” explored how Woo Seo Ri (Shin Hye Sun) finds herself in a sticky situation when she falls into a coma at 17 years old, but wakes up much later when she’s 30 years old. Many people tuned into the premiere because of its plot that focuses on how she begins to reconcile the disconnect between her mental and physical state with the help of Gong Woo Jin (Yang Se Jong).
KBS2’s “Are You Human, Too” rose to second place in its time slot with its latest viewership ratings. It recorded 4.6 percent and 5.6 percent during its July 23 broadcast. Seo Kang Joon in particular shined in this episode as both the human Nam Shin and the robot Namshin III as they confronted each other face to face.
MBC’s “Risky Romance” also premiered on July 23 with viewership ratings of 4.1 percent and 3.5 percent. While it was third in its time slot, the drama drew attention for the increased chemistry between leads Lee Si Young and Ji Hyun Woo, who reunited on the small screen for the first time in eight years after “Birth of a Rich Man.”
All three dramas air at 10 p.m. KST on Mondays and Tuesdays. Check out the premiere of “30 but 17” below!
