Playful Kiss Scores Higher Ratings in Re-Runs

MBC’s newest drama Playful Kiss scored higher ratings in the re-runs of its first and second episodes.

The re-runs of the two episodes were broadcast on the 4th, and according to AGB Nielsen Media Research, it received ratings of 4.2% and 6.6%, higher than the original broadcast ratings of 3.5% and 3.7%.

The producers of Playful Kiss, Group Eight, stated:

It’s true that the drama’s ratings are affected by KBS 2TV’s Baker King Kim Tak Gu, that has its own ratings of 40%+. … The success will come after Kim Tak Gu ends on the 16th. … The re-runs’ ratings were higher than the ratings of the drama’s actual broadcast. On top of that, the online and overseas reaction weren’t bad as well. … It’s safe to expect the ratings to go up in the future.

Meanwhile, MBC is the only broadcaster that has yet to settle pay dispute with HanYeJo (Korean Broadcast, Movie, Performance, and Artists Labor Union) over the non-payment controversy. Consequently, it appears that MBC’s dramas, including Playful Kiss, are being affected by the feud.

Okay, to be honest, I rarely re-post articles from Allkpop, because I don't think they like our boys very much (except for some writers that I could easily count off in one hand). But this article is harmless, and it talks about Leader's new drama in a positive way, so I posted it. I don't know if you noticed this, but when it comes to SS501, they either report stuff with a negative tone, or they don't report anything at all. That's just my personal opinion, and there are some people who agree with me too. I just hope that as a news portal, they should be fair. With other idol groups and artists, they are generous with the praises, but when something good happens for SS501, they totally ignore it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing, I'm just voicing out my disappointment. I just hope that in the future, they also give the same respect to SS501 as they do the other idol groups. Just my 2 cents. With that said, hopefully Playful Kiss will continue to increase in ratings for the upcoming episodes! Leader fighting!
