The Wednesday-Thursday throne now belongs to SBS’ Rooftop Prince, as MBC’s The King 2Hearts continued its viewership ratings decline.
According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, the April 5 broadcast of The King 2Hearts recorded a 12.1 percent viewership ratings, which was a 1.4 percent decrease from last week’s fifth episode.
Even the kiss scene between Ha Ji Won and Lee Seung Gi couldn’t save The King 2Hearts from its continuous decline, as it lost even more viewers and the no. 1 viewership ranking to its same timeslot rival, Rooftop Prince, which received a 12.5 percent ratings, claiming the top spot in its third week.
Meanwhile, the clumsy adjustment period of prince Lee Gak (Park Yoo Chun) and his three officials, Song Man Bo (Lee Min Ho), Do Chi San (Choi Woo Sik) and Woo Yong Sool (Jung Seok Won), to their new corporate life was shown in the latest episode of Rooftop Prince.
Furthermore, Park Ha’s flashback of her previous truck accident while at the scene of Man Ok’s (Song Ok Sook) accident further heightened the anticipation of viewers.
KBS2’s same timeslot drama, The Equator Man recorded a 10.2 percent viewership ratings.
