According to AGB Nielson Media Research ratings agency’s statistics released on January 19th, 2012, the episode 5 of The Moon that Embraces the Sun broadcast on January 18th, 2012 achieved the rating of 24.9%, becoming the national champion. Because of excellent acting by the young actors, The Moon that Embraces the Sun which has its popularity surging is breaking its highest ratings record once again.
In contrast, the ratings of Wild Romance and Take Care of Us, Captain are in critical state. The rating of Take Care of Us, Captain on January 18th is still acceptable 9.6%, but the 5.7% rating for Wild Romance is indeed far from satisfactory.
For SBS and KBS, although they can’t escaped from the impact of the high popularity of The Moon that Embraces the Sun, but have also prepared for counterattack. A person related to broadcasting industry said, “The time when young actors changed into adult adults, is the best opportunity. Is currently actively prepared for the new drama.”
The battle of territory between MBC which is laughing because of popularity of The Moon that Embraces the Sun and KBS and SBS is increasingly heating up.
