'Blue Fish' makes lukewarm debut

2007/04/09 Source

The SBS drama "Blue Fish" starring top actress Ko So-young might have succeeded in capturing the media's attention, but failed to do so when it came to viewers.

The first episode of the weekend soap-opera series which aired last Saturday recorded a viewers' rating of 8 percent and recorded an even lower figure of 6.5 percent on Sunday, according to TNS Media Research.

In the meantime, "Dae Jo Yeong", an epic series produced by KBS, benefited from a 27 percent lead-in rating Sunday entering a new phase of the story with anti-Chinese forces trying to restore the Goguryeo kingdom being crushed. "Que Sera, Sera", another competing drama from MBC recorded 8.4 percent, failing to maintain the popularity of its previous medical drama, "White Tower".

In "Blue Fish", her first TV series in 9 years, Ko, 35, best remembered for her posh roles in various TV commercials, stars as Eun-soo, a violinist who faces a fateful re-encounter with her first love with whom she failed to get married due to family antipathy.

Viewers have shown an unfavorable reaction to Ko's return to the TV screen with some criticizing her bumbling performance and the same-old image. SBS officials, however, expect the viewers' rating of "Blue Fish" to go up as the future episodes unfold.
