KBS Drama at Advantage After General Elections

2008/04/15 | 792 views | Permalink | Source

The KBS 2TV Drama "Three Dads, One Mom" (Writer Jo Myeong-joo, Producer Lee Jae-sang) saw positive effects from the General Elections.

"Three Dads, One Mom" reached record ratings of 11.9% yesterday (TNS Media Korea Survey), ranked second in its time-slot and pushed past the 7.9% ratings of the MBC drama "Who Are You - Drama". The SBS Drama "On Air" has held a constant rating of 20%, but faltered slightly at 19.4% last night.

"On Air" and "Who Are You - Drama" broadcast at 10:10 p.m., ten minutes later than their scheduled time due to special programs concerning Korean astronaut Lee So-yeon. "Three Dads, One Mom" began at 9:58 p.m.

The increase in ratings for "Three Dads, One Mom" was determined to have started a day earlier on the 9th during the 18th General Elections of Korea. All the other TV dramas in the same time-slot were cancelled due to the special General Election broadcasts, which is when the KBS drama rose from low single-digit ratings to 14.5%.

"Three Dads, One Mom" is a light-hearted TV drama about a woman who's impregnated by one of three sperm donors, and it stars Eugene (Eugene), Jo Hyun-jae, Shin Sung-rok, and Jae Hee.
