All Wednesday-Thursday dramas showed a slight fall in viewership. However, new entertainment show House on Wheels started its journey amid favorable reviews.
According to Nielsen Korean, the 15th and 16th episodes of MBC’s Kkondae Intern, which aired on June 11, recorded 4.4 percent and 5.8 percent viewership. Although the drama is still at the top spot of all Wednesday-Thursday dramas, the figures are down from 5.6 percent and 7.1 percent viewership recorded the previous day.
The 23rd and 24th episodes of KBS2’s Fix You recorded 1.4 percent and 1.7 percent, while the 8th episode of JTBC’s Mystic Pop-Up Bar recorded 2.941 percent viewership. Both of them saw a slight drop in the viewerships compared to the previous episode.
On the other hand, tvN’s new entertainment show House on Wheels started off strong, receiving great reviews from viewers.
Such warm reactions led to high viewership. The first episode of House on Wheels, which aired on June 11, recorded an average of 4 percent and peaked as high as 6.2 percent. The perfect chemistry between the cast, Song Dong Il, Kim Hee Won, and Yeo Jin Gu, grabbed the attention.
On June 12, producer Kang Gung said, “Thank you so much for all your interest. Since the cast and the guests were such amazing people, we expected great results, but we got even better reactions.”
He then finished by saying, “In the next episode, there is a scene where Ra Mi Ran and Hyeri secretly cook ramen while waiting for food. It’s going to present a big laugh.”
