Friends Kim Seung-woo-Bae Yong-joon, showdown is a 'win-win game'

2007/09/21 | Permalink | Source

Close friends Kim Seung-woo and Bae Yong-joon are gathering attention for their showdown in Wednesday and Thursday nights with 'How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor' and 'The Legend'. In terms of numbers, 'The Legend' is the winner, but the competition between them goes beyond statistics.

'How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor' had the highest ratings during its time slot until 'The Legend' began last week. But interestingly enough, the decrease in the ratings was only 2-3%, rather small considering 'The Legend' recorded over 20%. This week, 'The Legend' exceeded the 30% mark. Regardless, the affect 'The Legend' has on 'How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor' is relatively small, proving the quality of the series.

Bae Yong-joon who does not have too many close exchanges with fellow actors is close to Kim Seung-woo, following him as his senior. Kim Seung-woo commented prior to the first broadcast of 'The Legend', "The series is completely different in genre from ours and because they placed so much effort into it, I hope it succeeds".

Perhaps as Kim Seung-woo's wish, 'The Legend' has been gathering the spotlight with good reviews. But with Kim Seung-woo in 'How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor', the broadcast scene is experiencing a rare win-win relationship between two drama series.
