With KBS “Hong Gil Dong” not showing last night, SBS “On Air” and MBC “Who Are You?” ratings increased noticeably in the latest chapter of the ratings war.
According to TNS Media Korea, last night episode of SBS “On Air” got a rating of 18.9%, and was higher than what it got the night before (14.7%), an increase of 4.2%. MBC “Who Are You?” reached 12.4% and was higher than it’s previous rating of 9.5%, an increase of 2.9%.
The surge in ratings was largely influenced by the non-showing of KBS “Hong Gil Dong”. KBS had decided to broadcast a baseball match between South Korea and Canada which resulted in “Hong Gil Dong” being postponed to next week.
This interruption is likely to have a bearing on how the ratings war between the top two competing dramas in the same timeslot will go in future. Everyone is concerned with the outcome as “Hong Gil Dong” is nearing it’s end with it’s final three episodes while “On Air” is building on a fiery momentum.
