“Big Issue” Premieres To Second Place In Time Slot, “Liver Or Die” Continues To Reign
SBS’s new drama “Big Issue,” which is taking over the time slot previously occupied by “The Last Empress,” premiered on March 6. The drama is about a photographer (played by Joo Jin Mo) who loses everything and hits rock bottom because of a single photograph. He then meets the celebrity-famous editor-in-chief of the country’s most notorious tabloid (played by Han Ye Seul), who offers him a chance to take his life back.
With its first episodes, the drama is off to a relatively slow start, recording viewership ratings of 4.1 and 4.8 percent. This is a long way behind the finale for “The Last Empress,” which concluded with ratings of 14.1 and 16.5 percent.
Meanwhile, “Liver or Die” continues to enjoy its Wednesday-Thursday reign with ratings on Wednesday reaching 15.2 and 18.1 percent, while MBC’s “Spring Turns to Spring” continues to trail with 2.9 and 3.3 percent.
