"A Love To Kill" gains popularity from pilot episode

2005/11/01 | 1411 views | Permalink | Source

The pilot episode of the new Monday-Tuesday KBS TV2 miniseries "A Love to Kill" (written by Lee Kyeong-hee and produced by Kim Kyoo-tae) kept viewers riveted to their TV screens when it aired yesterday.

According to viewership research firm TNS Media Korea on Nov. 1, the pilot episode of "A Love to Kill" recorded viewer ratings of 16.4 percent on Oct. 31, beating out two other series that aired in the same time slot on two other major channels. The viewership of "A Love to Kill" was 1.2 percentage points higher than that of the SBS series "Seodongyo", which has topped the Monday-Tuesday viewer ratings so far.

The series drew the spotlight even before it premiered on national television for starring the popular singer/actor Rain, who portrays a delinquent K-1 fighter. The series' pilot episode seems to have lived up to viewers' high expectations.

The first several episodes of the series depict the backgrounds of its four main characters -- Rain ("Bok-ku"), Kim Sa-rang ("Da-jung"), Lee Ki-woo (Jun-sung) and Shin Min-ah (Eun-suk) -- as well as their relationships, which begin as disguised love but progress into open attachment and result in ugly situations.

The series' writer, Lee Kieonng-hee, also wrote the series "Sorry, I Love You" and "Sang Doo! Let's go to school", both portraying the "dreadful side of love". "A Love to Kill" is expected to continue that tradition by depicting an extreme love that is too hard to endure.
