Due to the strength of MBC drama Lights and Shadows, the viewership ratings of SBS drama Fashion King dropped below 10% again.

According to statistics released by AGB Nielson media research agency on the morning of April 10th, 2012, the national viewership rating for Fashion was only 9.0%, decreased by 1.4% from previous episode.

Several kiss scenes by all 4 leading actors and actresses were staged in the episode, including drunken Jae Hyuk (Lee Je Hoon) kisses Ga Young (Shin Se Kyung), and insulted Young Gul (Yoo Ah In) kisses Anna (Yuri) in retaliation. Even so, the kiss scenes did not play any role to save the ratings.

MBC drama Lights and Shadows and KBS drama Love Rain broadcast at the same time slot rated 21.9% and 5.4% respectively.


  • Well, it could be that yuri fans don’t really like the kiss scenes. the pd should stop using this kind of scenes to attract viewers. emotional scenes are a lot better.

      indeed…that’s what i think too

  • this drama clearly is a kissy-fest.. not to mention too dramatic and harsh world that the characters going through.. I mean it was waaaay to dramatic for people to get beaten up ALL THE TIME. I dunno why, maybe to get a melodramatic angle? The angst is also a bit forced. I dont understand some of the characters’ behavior,I just find it annoying.  I much prefer dramas with actual plot like The King 2 Hearts. or Rooftop Prince. Even The equator Man was more interesting even though it’s boring in the beginning.
