Intense competition of Monday-Tuesday TV dramas
MAY 07, 2014 08:04  
New Monday-Tuesday TV shows have started competition for ratings over the long holidays.

Three television networks competed over their new television dramas aired on Monday and Tuesday for the first time. MBC released 밫riangle which followed 밇mpress Ki, and SBS aired 밆octor Stranger following 밎od뭩 Gift 14 Days. KBS aired the third episode of 밄ig Man.

According to Nielson Korea, a media-rating company, 밫riangle led with an 8.9 percent rating, followed by 밆octor Stranger (8.6 percent) and 밄ig Man (8 percent). The close competition is likely to continue.

밫riangle comes after 밇mpress Ki which had been the top in viewership in Monday-Tuesday TV dramas with an average of over 20 percent rating. The new drama was 19.8 percent points lower than 28.7 percent or the viewer rating of the last episode of 밇mpress Ki. It is about three brothers who lose parents and live separately but eventually meet each other again by chance. Lee Beom-soo, Kim Jae-joong, and Yim Si-wan act as the three brothers. It remains to be seen whether KBS can overcome its weakness in Monday-Tuesday dramas with 밄ig Man starring Kang Ji-hwan. 밫he Full Sun, the predecessor of 밄ig Man, had been in the two percent range in ratings. 밆octor Stranger, a mix of a medical, spying, and melodramatic story, stars Lee Jong-seok. Koo Seung-hyun who played as Lee뭩 child actor in 밒 Can Hear Your Voice plays as his child role again in the new series.
