Ratings report: 49 Days, Best Love, Romance Town

All right, now that the recap frenzy has lulled, I can take a moment
to look at how the ratings are shaping up for the new May trendies,
specifically the Wednesday-Thursday shows. I haven’t been following the
numbers too closely because they’d been fairly static for a while, but
with one just about to end and two new ones entering the fray, it’s time
for some shakeup.
SBS’s 49 Days has enjoyed the first spot for a few
episodes now, and this week welcomed its highest numbers to date: a
14.8% on Wednesday and a 15.4% for Thursday. [SPOILERS] Things are
heating up with only one week to go and the conflicts coming to a head
as Ji-hyun and Kang recognize their feelings for each other, angst about
her 49 days ending, thwart the baddies from destroying her father’s
company, and worry about how to keep Ji-hyun alive. [/END SPOILERS] Good
stuff there.

Also heating up is the Hong sisters rom-com on MBC, Best Love, which is quickly catching up and will probably leap into first place once 49 Days takes its bow.

Best Love
Last week, Best Love premiered in third place with an 8.4% while 49 Days and Thorn Birds both scored 13.2% ratings. It improved but remained in last place with Episode 2 with a 9.7%, as Thorn Birds aired its finale (14.2%) and 49 Days pulled up with a 14.7%.
So this week’s movement up to 12.1% and 13.9% bodes well for its
future, as the Hong sisters keep delivering the funny and the actors
keep delivering hilarious and endearing performances. (Seriously? So
cute and wacky. “GIVE ME BACK MY PANTIES!”)
Last but not least (well, it IS the least, but only in a strictly numbers sense) is Romance Town
on KBS, which premiered its first two episodes this week. Its first
drew an 8.6%, and its second recorded an 8.2%. Not bad, and it still has
room to move up if 49 Days’ successor drama isn’t up to snuff — that’ll be something to watch for when City Hunter also joins the lineup in two weeks. On one hand, that drama looks terrible.
On the other, its tone is different from the other two rom-coms, so it
has a shot at drawing an audience in the mood for something more
action-filled. Or crazily — and schizophrenically — plotted. Or just
chock full of Lee Min-ho.
I haven’t seen Romance Town yet but I hear it’s got an
interesting tone that’s a little bit different from the standard
romantic comedy vibe, so I’m holding out hope for it. Although the part
of my brain dying for some sleep is hoping it tanks, frankly. But who
says you need sleep to be able to function? Or recap properly? Fair
warning: If the next recap comes out unintelligible or sorely lacking
crucial words and/or logic, you’ll know what happened.
