I feel like the lede for this article about ratings is less the competition and more whether the drama has the allure to bring in its own respective set of viewers. This Friday the SBS Fri-Sat time slot started Now, We are Breaking Up after the conclusion of One: The Woman last week and the first episode brought in 6.4% which is a good 3% less than One: The Woman premiered to. MBC launched a drama in the Fri-Sat time slot for the first time and put in serious youth sageuk The Red Sleeve Cuff which debuted to 5.7% AGB nationwide ratings. I have not had a chance to watch either premiere episode yet but the reviews are mixed with Breaking Up and majority positive for The Red Sleeve Cuff. With that said, I just don’t see the two dramas competing for the same audience group, the former would be the wives and younger gen who want an edgier modern romance and the latter likely core sageuk afficionados. I think if the dramas were awesome off the bat there is a chance to just bring more eyeballs back to television and increase ratings for both.
