In the past, entertainment TV shows had control of Friday night TV. However, there is a change coming, and the reason for that is behind the leap in drama content with solid stories.
SBS's Friday - Saturday drama "Stove League" ended with a record breaking 19.1% and 22.1% on the 14th.
"Stove League" began with a viewership of 5.5% and ended up with two digits in just four episodes. This was thanks to the good storyline and good production. It also broke the stereotype that 'sports dramas don't succeed'.
JTBC drama "Itaewon Class" rated 10.7% and 12% on the same day, breaking its own record. The increasing rating of "Itaewon Class" is noticeable, as it started with 4.9%, but broke through 10% in just five episodes.
The power of this drama is that it has already been proven to be a popular webtoon. The original writer, Kwang Jin, also participates in the drama's screenplay.
His choice to expand the narrative and the relationships between the characters that he never managed to do on the webtoon is the main idea.
"Stove League" is directed by Jeong Dong-yoon, written by Lee Shin-hwa, and features Namgoong Min, Park Eun-bin, Oh Jung-se, Jo Byeong-gyu, Son Jong-hak, Lee Joon-hyuk-I. Broadcasting information in Korea: 2019/12/13~2020/02/14, Fri, Sat 22:00 on SBS.
"Itaewon Class" is directed by Kim Seong-yoon, written by Kwang Jin, and features Park Seo-joon, Kim Da-mi, Yoo Jae-myung, Kwon Nara, Kim Dong-hee, Ahn Bo-hyun. Broadcasting information in Korea: 2020/01/31~Now airing, Fri, Sat 22:50 on jTBC.
