Wow, what a huge reversal of ratings fortunes in one short week, but judging by the viewer feedback should come as no surprise. Wed-Thurs K-dramas took divergent paths for the two new premieres from last week – high profile Saimdang: Light’s Diary remained the nightly leader but dropped a big chunk, coming in at 13% AGB nationwide which was a 3.3% drop, whereas Chief Kim rose 5.6% to come a hairsbreadth away at taking the lead with 12.8% ratings. On a side note, castaway Missing 9 is still missing viewers with only 4.8% ratings. I’m sad that Lee Young Ae’s big comeback is turning into a likely bust, as least with respect to how highly anticipated it was, but I always appreciate when good dramas win viewers simply on quality even if it doesn’t have the big name cast.
What do viewers watching both dramas think? And is Missing 9 a good drama that isn’t getting any love that it should?
