A hearty congrats for KBS Wed-Thurs melodrama fantasy romance Black Knight (The Man Who Guards Me), winning the time slot handily and even more impressive is continuing to increase in ratings. This third week’s ratings broke 10% on Wednesday with 10.6% AGB nationwide and rose to 11.1% for Thursday. Nothing to Lose (Judge vs. Judge) stayed consistent around the 6% range and same with I am Not a Robot in the 3% pitiful third place.
I love seeing K-dramas succeed in ratings even if I’ve not yet started Black Knight (waiting to marathon) and adore I am Not a Robot, the latter getting no K-viewer love is understandable since it’s silly fluff that narratively evaporates the moment it’s presented and only lingers on the acting and chemistry of leads Yoo Seung Ho and Chae Soon Bin. Black Knight seems like a fine red wine, meaty and rich, with leads Kim Rae Won, Shin Se Kyung, and Seo Ji Hye all getting good feedback from viewers. I can’t wait to start it and am so happy also for KBS to finally win the Wed-Thurs time slot.
