Mnet’s Street Dance Girls Fighter took first place for two consecutive weeks. The “One Team Performance Mission” result drew a lot of attention.

The courageous attempt of Kim Hyun Seong, who appeared as singer No. 43, gave a great resonance. SBS’s Running Man rose to third place. It seems like the result of a steep rise in popularity due to the news of Yoo Jae Suk becoming a coronic and the possibility of him attending the SBS Entertainment Awards.
