‘The King 2Hearts’ Drops and ‘The Equator Man’ Rises
MBC’s The King 2Hearts, which had stayed at the top of the drama game ever since it aired its first episode on March 21, saw a fall in its viewership ratings to a little over 10 percent. KBS2’s The Equator Man on the other hand, inched closer to its competition with two-digit ratings.
According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, the April 4 broadcast of The King 2Hearts recorded 13.5 percent viewership ratings. Rooftop Prince, which had been hot on The King 2Hearts’ trail, got 11.2 percent ratings. The King 2Hearts dropped 1.1 percent compared to its previous week, while Rooftop Prince also dropped 0.2 percent.
The Equator Man, which had been bringing up the rear, scored its highest ratings since it started airing with 10.2 percent. It now seems to be looking for an opportunity to turn the competition around with its recent 1.7 rise in ratings.
The three main channels started airing their new dramas on the same day. In the competition between MBC’s The Sun and the Moon, KBS2’s Wild Romance and SBS’ Take Care of Me, Captain, The Sun and the Moon had crushed out the others to become the ‘Nation’s drama’.
The second match, however, isn’t coming up with a definite lead.
Which drama will emerge triumphant in the end is yet to be seen.
