Gumiho Girlfriend Goes Out On Top
The ratings switched around for Thursday’s drama broadcasts, placing SBS’s fantasy-romantic-comedy series “My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho” in first place with a 19.9% as the drama concluded its run. (No spoilers in this post.) KBS’s action-comedy “Runaway Plan B” slipped a few percentage points but maintained a strong showing with a 17.9%.
“Runaway” had been the winner just the day before with a 20.7% premiere, but looks like a lot of people were curious about the fate of Gumiho‘s “hoi couple” (Shin Mina and Lee Seung Gi), and wanted to see if we would get our happy ending or not. (Warning: PLEASE do not spoil the ending in this post. The recap will be up soon enough, and you can wait a few measly hours, right? You can do eet!)
I’m pretty sure “Runaway” will be back solidly on top next week — even though that’s when SBS’s new challenger, “Daemul,” premieres.
The good news even extends toward perennial last-place drama “Playful Kiss,” which managed a relatively high 7.5% for its tenth episode. That means both “My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho” and “Playful Kiss” recorded their series highs, making it a pretty good showing all around.
