Strong Heart, TV Ratings (5.4.10): Guest Rain, Part 1


(photo credit: TV Daily)

May 4, 2010

AGB Nielsen:  6- SBS Strong Heart = 15.7% 
                          * KBS Win Win = 7.1% (not in top 20)

TNS Media:     4- SBS Strong Heart = 17.3%

Looks like Rain worked his magic again.  When he was on Win Win on April 13th, Strong Heart came in 2nd place during its time slot for the first time since it first aired six months ago.  And it was only like 1.5% points higher but of course the Korean press made it out like it was the end of Strong Heart while failing to mention the little factoid that this was Rain’s first interview to start his album promotions!  But the Korean press is fickle and when Win Win fell back to 2nd place the following week, they were of course making it out like it was the end of Win Win!  Seriously, is there a difference between regular press and gossip press anymore?!

Even if Strong Heart ratings bump was primarily due to Rain, SeungGi and Hodong and the Strong Heart staff needed a confidence boost and so this was perfect timing!  And as they’ve been looking to change things up to improve the show, this is a great start!  Also, someone explain to me why KBS (which is run by the government, unlike SBS and MBC) chose to broadcast Win Win last week while the other broadcast companies cancelled variety shows out of respect for the naval tragedy?!

Anyway, haven’t seen the Strong Heart ep yet so will have to check it out later.  Curious to see what all the SeungGi bowing to Rain was about!  Thanks Rain for reviving Strong Heart, and boosting the spirits of MCs Seunggi and Hodong, and PDs and staff!  Worldstar Rain, you really are a super star and such a great face for Kpop! :)

Fighting~~ RAIN!!  

Fighting~~ MCs Seunggi and Hodong!  Fighting~~ Strong Heart!!!

  1. the ratings back, hopefully it will continue to the succeeding episodes. I haven’t watched it yet fully. I’ve only seen the part when rain chose his ideal girl and then a comedian did a parody of kim yuna’s short program spiral wearing that sexy little black dress and roller blades. That one was hilarious.
