Yoon Eun Hye’s New Drama “Love Alert” Sets Viewership Ratings Record With Premiere
MBN’s new drama “Love Alert” is off to an impressive start!
According to Nielsen Korea, the October 31 premiere of “Love Alert” not only took first place in its time slot across all channels, but it also broke MBN’s record for highest viewership ratings achieved by a drama’s premiere.
The first episode of the romantic comedy, which stars Yoon Eun Hye as an A-list actress who ends up faking a relationship with a famous doctor (played by Chun Jung Myung), scored average viewership ratings of 2.8 percent nationwide—no easy feat, considering that the drama airs on a cable network.
Meanwhile, MBC’s “Terius Behind Me” maintained its first place position in its own time slot (the drama airs at a different time than “Love Alert”). The drama’s October 31 broadcast scored average ratings of 7.9 percent and 9.7 percent for its two parts, while SBS’s “Heart Surgeons” followed close behind with ratings of 6.2 percent and 7.5 percent. Finally, KBS 2TV’s “The Ghost Detective” scored average viewership ratings of 2.3 percent and 2.1 percent for the night.
