It’s quite a turnaround for KBS on the Wed-Thurs time slot after the record ratings low for the network with Manhole a few months ago. That ignominy belongs to MBC now with its low-rated rom-com I am Not a Robot while KBS keeps getting higher ratings for the fantasy romance drama Black Knight (The Man Who Guards Me). This Thursday’s episode 8 hit 13.2% AGB nationwide ratings, an increase of 1.6% from the previous episode and continues this drama’s upward trajectory. I hope the final 8 episodes manages to break 20% and breathe new life to the overall ratings slump of the prime time weekday dramas for the big three network. I haven’t started Black Knight yet, banking episodes for a hopefully satisfying marathon soon, but the overall audience feedback remains positive. I’m thrilled for leads Kim Rae Won, Shin Se Kyung, and Seo Ji Hye in choosing a smart drama project, though someone needs to explain why Shin Se Kyung is tossing a bicycle across the intersection at Kim Rae Won in one of the recap stills lol.
