The TV drama "Every Night", starring Kim Sun-ah
and Lee Dong-gun
, took over the time slot of the MBC hit production "Yi San
" with safe 10% ratings.
According to the ratings research company TNS Media Korea, "When It's at Night
" recorded national ratings of 11.6% for its first episode, which aired on the 23rd.
The ratings were lower than the 14% reached by "Yi San
" for its first broadcast last September. However, "When It's at Night
" is up against tough competition.
The same primetime slot is occupied by the SBS TV drama "Gourmet"
, (16.4%) starring Kim Rae-won
, and the KBS 2TV production starring Eric, "Mighty Chil-woo
" (10.5%). "When It's at Night
" was also at a disadvantage due to a one-week delay of the first episode.
Another ratings research company, AGB Nielson Media Research, found that the TV ratings for "When It's at Night
" were only 10.9% nationwide, while "Gourmet"
came in at 15.2% and "Mighty Chil-woo
Chil-woo" reached 11.1%.
"When It's at Night
" is about Korea's Cultural Heritage, with Kim Sun-ah
on the task force of Cultural Heritage crime-fighters and Lee Dong-gun
playing a flirty art historian.
