  1. Well, as I remember (I read from somewhere)

    They said Hong Sis’s dramas are very popular outside K.
    But in K , the rating never pass 20%(except Delightful Girl Choon Hyang)
    All their drama got rating ~ (+- )15%

    So no surprise here, MGIG didn’t get that high like we expect.
    Anyway we should enjoy DW and MH as long as they are together…kekeke what’s cute couple..:)

    This is getting weird, I can’t (see) get in LSG Soompi thread (always a blank page) but other soompi threads (MGIG or SMA thread) are fine…..:( ???

  2. actually BK would not have such high rating jump from epi 3 if it is not for the world cup.. during that time, SBS stopped all dramas at 9pm Korea time to focus on WC.. that’s when KBS has the chance to gain more viewers (especially for those who doesn’t watch soccer)… i can say that they are quite lucky….

    BK as far as i have read articles about it, they are not extending the drama, so it will ends at epi 30..
