Kim Jung Eun’s New Drama “Make a Woman Cry” Lands High Ratings for First Episode
MBC’s new weekend drama “Make a Woman Cry” is off to a great start after its first broadcast achieved 15 percent viewership.
According to the viewer ratings research company Nielsen Korea, the April 18 broadcast of “Make a Woman Cry” recorded a 15 percent viewership rating. Compared to 7.4 percent for the SBS drama “Take Care of My Dad” and 23 percent for KBS 2TV’s “Bluebird’s House,” the rating was a strong showing for the series’ first episode.
The 15 percent rating is 1.3 percentage points higher than the first broadcast of the show’s predecessor, “Rosy Lovers.” As “Rosy Lovers” was the top weekend drama when it went off the air, “Make a Woman Cry” looks like it might be able to take advantage of its predecessor’s success and capture the first place spot.
Meanwhile, “Make a Woman Cry” centers on the story of Jang Deok In, played by Kim Jung Eun, a former detective who opens a small restaurant after the loss of her son.
