Viewer rating of Iljimae Surpasses 20 Percent

2008/06/13 Source

The viewer rating of the SBS TV drama "Iljimae", starring Lee Joon-gi, has surpassed 20 percent for its 7th episode, cementing the show's position as the most popular Mon/Tues TV drama.

According to AGB Nelson Media Research on Thursday, the average viewer rating of Iljimae's Wednesday episode was higher than 20 percent. MBC's "Spotlight" and KBS 2TV's "Sisters in Love", which also aired in the same slot, recorded viewer ratings of 10.1 percent and 10.5 percent, respectively.

Iljimae's Wednesday episode showed hero Yong-ee's attempts to transform into Iljimae. Yong-ee, who falls into despair as he witnesses his long-lost sister being executed, vows to avenge his father's death.

There has been another change in the dynamics of the Wed/Thur TV dramas along with Iljimae's soaring popularity. "Women in the Sun" has begun to move ahead of Spotlight, albeit by small margins.

"Women in the Sun", starring Kim Ji-soo and Lee Ha-na, is the newest drama among the three TV dramas. Although it has a typical story centered on the secret of a birth and good vs. evil, it has beaten "Spotlight", starring Son Ye-jin, in its fifth episode. Spotlight, which revolves around the lives of news reporters, has been losing ground due to a number of complicated issues such as changes in writers and poor storyline and directing.
