”Monarch’ MBC Wednesday Thursday drama highest rating in the broadcast four episode [two consecutive]
MBC drama ‘Ruler: Master of the Mask’ (Monarch) went on to set its own highest rating in the broadcast four episode and to set a throne on the soccer pole.
MBC has been rewarded for its reputation as a “Monarch”, which has been criticized for its low weighted ratings, though it received favorable reviews for its work with ‘Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo’, ‘Missing 9’ and ‘Radiant Office’.
According to Nielsen Korea’s ratings on May 12, “Monarchs”, which was broadcasted at 10:00 pm on May 11, recorded 10.5% and 12.6% nationwide daily ratings respectively. It’s 0.8% P and 1.0% P higher than the last 9.7% and 11.6%, respectively, and it is the highest among the terrestrial TV drama broadcasted during the same time period.
The reason why the ‘Monarch’ could climb the throne in two days of broadcasting was because of the rapid development of the drama and the actors’ performance. On this day, Seja Lee Sun (Yoo Seung Ho), who was secretly out on the day, raised the audience’s immersiveness by showing his identity as the father of (Commoner) Lee Sun (Kim Myung Soo)
The father of Commoner Lee was unjustly killed by Yang partisan, and Seja Lee stood with his whole body, who had a scythe to take revenge. “I can not let my companion become a murderer,” he said, “I will release your father.” But Commoner Lee Sun shouted, “What are you doing?” So Seja Lee came to uncover his identity.
Seja Lee finished the preparations to return to the womb. When I was about to head to the warts, I was in a crisis of being surrounded by assassins. I was curious as to whether Lee would be able to return to the fortress without fail, after the 4th meeting. In the future, Seja Lee Sun is going to find out why he had to wear a mask of life reasons have also attracted attention.
From 1 to 4 episode, the fateful encounter of Seja Lee’s sadness and the first love Han Ga-eun (Kim So Hyun) was painted with urgency and the performances of actors Yoo Seung Ho and Kim So Hyun were well received. Yoo Seung Ho played Seja Lee and played a big part in driving the audience to the top of the play. It is time to pay more attention to the increase in the audience rating of ‘Monarch’ in the future.
Meanwhile, KBS2 ‘The Sorcerer’s Queen’ was broadcast 9.2% on the same time period, while SBS ‘award-winning partners’ showed ratings of 6.1% and 7.2%, respectively.
