'Descendants of the Sun' VS 'Goodbye Mr. Black': Who will be the winner?

2016/03/14 | Permalink | Source

Lee Jin-wook and Moon Chae-won are challenging Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo.

MBC's new drama series, "Goodbye Mr. Black" (written by Moon Hee-jeong, directed by Han Heui and Kim Seong-wook-I) will be aired on the coming 16th, challenging the soaring KBS 2TV 'Descendants of the Sun'.

'Descendants of the Sun' shows great chemistry between Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo which brings the viewers' attention setting a new record every other episode.

It rated 28.5% (According to Nielsen Korea) in just six episodes, out ranking SBS 'My Love from the Star' which was as huge syndrome, and highly critizing the 'Descendants' scriptwriter, Kim Eun-sook's writing skills. 

"Goodbye Mr. Black" is based on a comic by Hwang Mi-na, about a man trying to avenge his friend who has betrayed him along with a love story between Lee Jin-wook and Moon Chae-won.

On the production presentation done on the 13th, both of them were being careful with challenging 'Descendants of the Sun'. They have both said that they have watched 'Descendants of the Sun' from time to time, stating that "Goodbye Mr. Black" has a completely different story with a different message. Especially for Moon Chae-won who has worked with Song Joong-ki before said, "I have worked with Song Joong-ki previously, and I personally cheer for him too".

Despite 'Descendants of the Sun' being pre-produced, "Goodbye Mr. Black" has been filmed up to episode 4. Producer Han Heui agreed with the pre-producing system completely, saying that the system should become more active in the future.

The first episode of "Goodbye Mr. Black" will be aired on the 16th and 'Descendants of the Sun' is having a press conference with the all the main casts on the same day. It looks like that KBS is trying to protect their viewers from moving onto "Goodbye Mr. Black".
