Gumiho Girlfriend gains (a little) ground on Baker King

Last week, Baker King Kim Tak-gu on KBS scored fantastic numbers with a 44.9% rating (TNS Media) to My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho‘s 12.7% on SBS. This Wednesday, the numbers were 44.0% to 14.6% as Gumiho benefits from word of mouth (and exceptional rerun numbers) for its fresh plot and delightfully funny storytelling.

The AGB numbers are slightly different from TNS ratings but follow the same general pattern; they give last week’s numbers as 10.2% and 10.8% for Gumiho, with an 11.4% for this week. Baker King‘s AGB numbers went from a 42.3% and 42.6% last week to a 41.9% this Wednesday. (Note: There are two sources of numbers for drama ratings, TNS and AGB Nielsen, and I don’t think it matters too much as long as you’re consistent about which numbers you’re using. The overall trends will tell the story.)

Personally, I think Baker King Kim Tak-gu will remain far ahead in first place on Wednesdays and Thursdays until it ends next month, given its massive head start, but I also suspect that Gumiho will continue to slowly creep up in the ratings. The latest numbers show a big enough difference to take note of, but small enough that we can’t jump to conclusions.

Road No. 1 continues to languish in distant third place at 4.6%.

My Dearest, @leslie.

There is sort of an "Unwritten Policy" around this place , I do not mean to be offensive, but we do not "Hurry" the kind and hard working people who do the recaps around here, it is a "Labor Of Love", so lets just sit and wait patiently and the recaps will eventually come when they are done. It is just to hard for them when people start to put to much pressure that its uncalled for, I hope you understand, and like I said I do not mean to be hard on you! : O }

I'm not too crazy over Gumiho (yet), but I like that Lee Seung Gi's character is so radically different from the first character he portrayed, Sun Woohwan. This being only his second major role in a drama, I think it shows his flexibility as an actor and that he's not just a one-hit wonder. Gumiho probably won't reach national drama status like Kim Tak Goo or Shining Inheritance, but I think it will gain or probably has already gained a group of loyal young followers, much like You're Beautiful.

Somewhere in Gumiho-land, Mi-ho is so happy by this news, she can feel her tails about to pop out, and she is going to make Dae-Woong watch...Take that, Baker King! Let's celebrate, and eat some cow!

I just finished watcing ep 21 of Baking King and OMG...I can't until tomorrow's episode!!! My pulse was racing at the end of the epidsode which happens often during this drama! Baking King has a very good & heartwarming story that I think would be enjoyable for any age group whereas I see My Girlfried is a Gumiho getting more attention from the younger generation. And I think that's why BK's ratings are higher n' will remain high until it ends. Kim Tak Gu is my #1 for me on Weds & Thurs!

Lastly, I feel sorry for Road No.1.

Important thing is Takgoo is slowly decreasing and Gumiho is slowly increasing. ^^
Both dramas are incredibly interesting to watch.
Takgoo gives me a shining inheritance feel. The main character trying to hard under all these unfair circumstances.
Gumiho is such a different take on the myth. I feel the Hong Sisters are going to shock us by telling us Gumiho doesn't really eat people. Hehee.
Can't wait for the angst in Gumiho. Every Hong sisters drama has the best angst. Although after catching the second lead syndrome my heart cries everytime. >,< Minwoo!!

I totally agree w/ you, Dara!!! MGIG ROCKS!!! mainly because of the Hong Sisters' writing!!!

I expected too much from Road No.1..I guess, cuz I love KHN & YKS, but after the 6th episode..I can't bear to continue watching it...

i do feel bad for Road No 1 though...it was supposed to be one of the big dramas of 2010...but big YAY for MGiaG....and i too think Tak Goo will contiue to dominate since its nearing its end and all bt i'm glad this drama is gaining some footing

I feel happy for Gumiho but afraid for September to come. Surely when Road no1 finish and Playfull Kiss wil join the wagon, it's either Gumiho ratings will fall or can't rise higher. it all depends on how much KTG's rating will drop when the 3 drama's on the roll. hope it will not effect Gumiho. 15% rating should be enough.

Ouch to Road No. 1 but it's story after 4 episodes was really Pearl Harbor-esque that it was a turn off

On the other hand, another war drama that is pretty underrated IMO is Comrades/Legend of the Patriots. Brilliant cast, acting, production design, costumes, and the story is epic, grandeur, and perfect. Only up to episode 10 but honestly I've learned alot about the Korean War. I'd recommend you watch it javabeans or anyone else for that matter if you want something with more angst and action especially with these comedies coming.

I'm like MGIAG but not love. Hopefully the next episodes make me wanting more

i am liking MGIG a lot...but epi 3 truthfully i liked less than the first two episodes...it was still nice and refreshing but less funny...i loved the comedy aspect of it and that was my main draw to this drama....but ofcourse i will continue to watch...and interestingly enough i really wasn't a big fan of BL that much...if i were to compare both..i would def. choose MGIG...atleast from wat we hav seen so far...

"Road No. 1 continues to languish in distant third place at 4.6%."

LOL one sentence about Road No. 1, I feel bad for them. It's so ironic how they have all these stars and Baker King is beating them with actors who aren't relatively known besides Eugene. Go Baker King! :D

I really feel 15% is both a realistic goal and, if reached, an indicator of strong success. The rerun numbers should still be awesome, like last week.

i love both dramas but i've got to note that there's A LOT of unbearable overacting by tak goo, the main character in baker king. for example: why does he cry at least 3 times EVERY single episode. when he's happy, sad, upset, moved; everything...

I'm a fan of Hong sisters, But serious I feel " My girlfriend is Gumiho" is not going great. It's boring to me, I hardly laugh during the first two episodes. It can't compare to "My girl" or "couple trouble"

Same with me. I watched the first episode but nothing really funny there for me. Perhaps, cos they're trying too hard to be funny? Dunno.. Just can't feel it yet. However, I still love LSG

Maybe it's because you have a different taste. I like watching how Gumiho runs after a person who rides a motorcycle while wearing a chicken suit. Haha, come to think about it, why would I Gumiho that is 500 years old do that? XD

It's all about imagination and humor. :D I really like this drama and how their face look like, maybe too much anime? :P

So far, I like Sassy Girl Chun Hyang and MYGFGumiho :D You can clearly see I have a same humor taste as the Hong Sisters ^.^

It's okay to not be interested with it, that's why there is such thing as genres. ^^~

Am I strange - because I didn't like any of the Hong's sisters recent series. Except for Choon Huang and My Girl, all the other series didn't do anything for me - especially You're Beautiful. The series was so childish and boring. Sorry kids, but mom is always right.

My taste is not for Baker's King since it has a relation with business suits. -_-"

Since I'm 14 I prefer to watch this kind of dramas ^^~
