‘Love Rain’ inconvenient ratings
English summary was provided by girlfriday.
Today marks the premiere of KBS’s new throwback drama Love Rain, the new project from famed season drama PD Yoon Suk-ho, starring Jang Geun-seok and Yoona. But despite the young starpower, the series premiered to disappointing ratings: 5.8%.
Both new Monday-Tuesday dramas were dwarfed by the reigning leader, MBC’s 50-episode Light and Shadow, which is enjoying a ratings resurgence since the end of History of a Salaryman. Light/Shadow recorded 20.6%, on its second week of over-twenty-percent ratings. SBS’s Fashion King, now in its second week, went down to 9.2%.
