SBS’s new weekend drama, “Secret Garden” is off to a solid start, as it came in first with its viewer ratings for its time slot.
According to AGB Nielson Media Research, its pilot episode (which aired on November 13th) recorded 17.2% in viewer ratings nationwide, 15% from the the 30-40 female viewer base, and 18.3% in the metropolitan area.
Other programs in the same time slot recorded 12.2% and 10.3% in ratings.
The pilot episode featured a variety of scenes with a fast plot. Viewers got to sample a bit of the comedy and action scenes, and it’s clear that they liked what they’ve seen. Ha Ji Won and Hyun Bin both synchronized well together with their delivery of witty lines and hilarious acting.
Positive comments were left for this collaborative effort between writer Kim Eun Sook and director Shin Woo Chul - ”They have the acting, plot, and script down. It’s all perfect,” “Hyun Bin’s transformation was humorous, who would’ve thought he would fit so well?” and “Ha Ji Won’s action scenes were some of the best I’ve seen from actresses in our country.”
Looks like if all goes well, Ha Ji Won and Hyun Bin could end up with yet another blockbuster achievement!
