“When I Was The Most Beautiful” Sees Dip In Ratings After Chuseok Broadcast Changes
Wednesday night dramas saw a dip in their ratings on September 30 due to widespread broadcast changes for the Chuseok holidays.
According to Nielsen Korea, the September 30 episode of MBC’s “When I Was the Most Beautiful” recorded average nationwide ratings of 1.7 and 2.3 percent. The drama started off with ratings of 2.9 percent and recently has recorded as high as 4.7 percent, making this a new personal low for the show.
“When I Was the Most Beautiful” will also not air on October 1 due to Chuseok broadcast changes.
This effect was largely attributed to the “2020 Hangawi Project – Korea Again Na Hoon Ah” that aired in the same time slot on KBS. This was a special Chuseok broadcast in which popular veteran trot singer Na Hoon Ah held a TV concert. This was also the singer’s first time appearing on TV in 15 years. As a result, this special recorded average nationwide ratings of 29.0 percent.
On SBS, the variety show “K-Trot in Town 2” recorded ratings of 2.0, 2.7, and 3.2 percent.
