“Tale Of The Nine-Tailed” Starts Off With A Bang As “Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol” And “Private Lives” Premiere To More Modest Ratings
Several new Wednesday-Thursday dramas made their premieres on October 7.
According to Nielsen Korea, the first episode of KBS’s “Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol” recorded average nationwide ratings of 1.9 and 2.6 percent. “Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol” is a rom-com starring Go Ara and Lee Jae Wook as a pianist and part-time worker who meet at a piano academy in a small countryside village.
JTBC’s “Private Lives,” another drama that premiered on October 7, recorded average nationwide ratings of 2.522 percent. This is about the same as “Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol,” although it should be noted that JTBC is a cable channel and ratings can differ in meaning between public broadcast and cable channels. “Private Lives” stars Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun and Go Kyung Pyo in a drama about con artists who mobilize their skills to steal the nation’s “private life.”
On tvN, “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” made its premiere to average nationwide ratings of 5.804 percent. Its predecessor in this time slot, “Flower of Evil,” was a ratings hit for the cable channel, reaching a personal best of 5.7 percent with its final episode. “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” therefore made a strong start by topping that mark with its very first episode.
On MBC, “When I Was the Most Beautiful” recorded ratings of 2.6 and 3.2 percent, a small decrease from last week.
Meanwhile, on SBS, which does not currently air dramas in this time slot, the reality show “K-Trot in Town 2” led the ratings pack with 12.4 percent.
