‘Lee Soon Shin’ breaks previous viewership record, squashing worries


Drama “You’re the Best, Lee Soon Shin”

The much-talked-about KBS weekend drama “You’re the Best, Lee Soon Shin” again recorded the highest-ever viewership rate over the weekend.

It marked 27.3 percent of daily viewership rate on Sunday, according to Nielsen Korea, 1.4 percent higher than the previous record.

The rate was also the highest of all programs that went on air on Sunday.

Such record dispels the previous worries that the drama would not be able to follow the hugely popular “My Daughter Seoyoung,” which recorded a whopping 50 percent viewership.

Although the drama is gaining steady attention, it has been also under criticism that the drama relied too much on singer IU’s character to form a storyline. It’s been said that no other characters are conspicuous and yet developed in the drama.

The drama depicts how IU grows to be a top celebrity.
