It’s a crazy low ratings premiere for new KBS Mon-Tues drama Ms. Perfect, even by the usual lower ratings standards. The new woman empowerment with a mystery twist arrival premiered with 3.9% AGB nationwide ratings, taking in half of what predecessor Hwarang was getting and Hwarang was considered a ratings disappointment. I’m confused by what Ms. Perfect is about and the promos haven’t made anything stick in an interesting way. Competition continues to be a one-man show as Defendant rose 1.1% to hit 23.3% while MBC‘s sageuk Rebel: The Thief Who Stole the People remained steady at 11.9%.
Defendant appears to still rest on the shoulders of Ji Sung, and at the rating of this drama’s ratings rise the viewers remain hooked on his pursuit of justice with his motley crew of fellow jailed chums.
