Dramas Fiercely Compete Over Viewer Ratings in the Wednesday-Thursday Prime Time Slot
KBS’s drama “Descendants of the Sun” continues to dominate the viewer ratings, according to a recent report from Nielsen Korea. The ultra-popular drama is still hovering just below the 30 percent mark on the national average (though it has already surpassed that goal in the Seoul ratings), with episode seven pulling in a 28.3 percent viewership.
MBC’s newest drama in the same time slot, “Goodbye, Mr. Black,” was expected to draw in high ratings, as well. However, its premiere episode only drew in a 3.9 percent viewership, closely following SBS’s “Please Come Back, Mister,” which scored 4 percent of viewers.
