Current No. 1 drama "Three Brothers" [KBS2]

KBS weekend drama "Three Brothers" topped last week's TV ratings charts, remaining the most popular televised show in Korea for the fifth consecutive week, according to polls on Monday.

Statistics by TNS Media Korea and AGB Nielsen Media Research showed that "Three Brothers" took the No. 1 spot on both charts between January 25 and 31, scoring viewership ratings of 38.2 percent and 35.4 percent, respectively.

"Three Brothers", which draws on the different lives three brothers live, has seen solid ratings since its premiere in mid-October.

TNS and AGB however, reported different results for "The Slave Hunters" and "Jolly Widows", also by major broadcaster KBS. TNS said "The Slave Hunters" gained a spot from last week to take second place with ratings of 32.6 percent while "Jolly Widows" fell down a slot to round off finish the top three with 32.2 percent.

AGB's survey indicated "Jolly Widows" fared slightly better than "Hunters", securing a rating of 33.5 percent versus 32.9 percent.

"The Slave Hunters", starring a handful of top Korean actors including Jang Hyuk, Lee Da-hae and Oh Ji-ho, is currently the most-watched Wednesday and Thursday night drama.

Daily series "Jolly Widows" ended its seven-month run on Friday. It had been a steady favorite amongst viewers, maintaining ratings in the 20 to 30 percent level during its showing.
