EXO’s Chanyeol Reveals Bold(?) Ratings Promise For “Missing 9”

Even if the goal is reached, could this be possible?

On the January 15 episode of MBC’s “Section TV,” the cast of “Missing 9” sat down for an interview, and started off by introducing their characters.

They also discussed the difficulties encountered while filming island scenes, such as a lack of bathrooms, severe temperature changes, and the understandably large amount of scenes involving water.

EXO’s Chanyeol, who plays the role of Lee Yeol, joked that they went to an actual stranded island, “about one hour away from Seoul.” Jung Kyung Ho clarified that they filmed at Jeju Island, but away from the city and towns.

When asked about if he had any rating promises, Chanyeol answered, “If we surpass 20 percent [in viewership ratings], we’ll hold a free hug event in front of the MBC building.”

“Missing 9” is about nine people who become stranded on an island following an unexpected plane accident, and try to find their way back to civilization. It will premiere on January 18.

Do you think this ratings promise is feasible?
