Gumiho Girlfriend rebroadcast surpasses premiere ratings

Last week’s premiere of My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho netted a decent rating at 12.7%, which is a solid number for an opener. With good reviews coming in, I was expecting the ratings to improve a bit in the coming week, but good news has come early; not only were rebroadcast ratings strong, they were even higher than the original broadcasts.

Weekend reruns climbed 4% to 16.1%, which is a fabulous number. (Heck, that’s a strong number even for an original-run episode.) Rerun ratings are noteworthy when they break double digits, so such a high number in this case indicates a strong word of mouth reaction.

Now it’ll be interesting to see whether its competitor drama Baker King Kim Tak-gu, which recently broke 40%, will experience a dip as a result of Gumiho‘s bump, or if it will remain as dominant as it’s been.

Personally, I think Gumiho will develop a devoted fanbase even if it remains in modest territory, but it would be great for the Hong sisters to get another ratings hit — their last two dramas, Hong Gil Dong and You’re Beautiful, had passionate fanbases but were in mania drama territory. In any case, I find My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho‘s story fresh and engaging, and a lot of fun to watch.

Show power in this drama is Shin Minna. She has high rating in all her dramas or movies. She has been in the industry for ages. Rating high because those who seeing her growing following her acting career. She has worked with Lee Byung twice in Beautiful Live and Bittersweet Lifes, Rain, JJH twice and many more. I love her. PPL tought LSG is star power but reality is Shin Minna... Go Girl

i do hope the ratings go up!!! whatever anyone might say, ratings DO count especially for the PD team and actors and the station too. let's face it, high ratings mean high revenue for the broadcasting station, increased morale to the PD team, and CF offers to our beloved actors!

I do hope as well that it climbs higher and higher. And I was just surprised that all of Lee Seung Gi's show were on the Top 20 Weekly mostly re-runs of 1N2D & Gumiho! I'm really excited during the Wednesday-Thursday timeslot. teehee.

Well for me, and probably others, King of Baking is first. But I also wanted to watch My girlfriend is a gumiho..
so if Koreans are like me then
I can see why the re-runs ratings are higher.
ahah
It really is too bad that they both show at the same time.
Both dramas are good.

oh and also,
"Now it’ll be interesting to see whether its competitor drama Baker King Kim Tak-gu, which recently broke 40%, will experience a dip as a result of Gumiho‘s bump, or if it will remain as dominant as it’s been."

I think that Baker King will remain dominant because it IS nearing the end of the drama, and people have invested their time for 20 episodes so they would want to see the end. Especially if the drama is good in their opinion then they probably wouldn't give it up.

Frankly i never saw the point to You Are Beautiful (srry to fans i know i sound kinda mean here), and as much as i told myself not to watch Guminho because I kinda gave up on the Hong Sisters after the YAB trauma.... the recaps on dramabeans got me to watch it anyway and i have to say that i'm pleasantly surprised =] many thanks hehe

I've never been interested in baker king from the beginning and not watched. but I was waiting gumiho and not dissapointed. it was so good and enjoyable. the actors are well-chosen amd the chemistry is so cute.
i hope the ratings will get higher even though i'm not interested in ratings so much...

Gumiho Fighting!!

It is sad when a show you love so much does not get watched a lot. At the same time when it's not blown out you feel a sense of ownership and pride in loving something that other fail to see the awesomeness in.

All the same a show needs good rating to succeed so I hope Gumiho is triumphant!!

I haven't watched Baker King myself, but judging from the ratings and high episode count, I have to agree w/ namemelydia - people will probably keep watching it, but I predict the re-run ratings for MGIG will climb even higher than now. MGIG fighting!

i'm watching baker king..not interested at first, but as soon as i started, i was just hooked..

and i hope it stays dominant..i'm sorry, but my wishful thinking is for baker king to break the lee seung gi effect(anything LSG's in rakes high ratings, even surpassing 40%)..

if i was in korea, as far for episode 21 for baker king, and episode 3 for MGIAG, i'm definitely excited to watch baker king 1st..then, i'll watch the rerun og MGIAG..:)

wishing all the best for both drama's for the upcoming future episodes~

that's exactly how I think would be happening to a lot of people.. people will watch BK first, bec they are already in the middle of watching the drama for the past months. THEN, watch MGIAG because actually a few people could argue that the drama sucks.

It is just the timing of the broadcasts. This happened before with KBS, MBC, and SBS, when they aired CS, PP, and PT all at the same time early this year. Which really is a bummer, because all those 3 dramas were REALLY good and are very popular too.

Wait til Playful Kiss starts airing in like 3 weeks.. then really the ratings will not due any justice to the dramas left behind.. there might be fan wars over ratigns?! HAHA.. I'm a cynic - kindof..

@18
Why is it a bad thing that all of Lee Seung gi's show all have high ratings!!!

I'm even more of a fan because he's such a well rounded entertainer. This just proves to me more that he has staying powers in this industry.

Even if the ratings stays in the teens. I dont think it does any damage because the first two episodes are already hits so its fanbase is enough be boasting about.

Go Seung Gi!!!!!!

if BK still has the same rating(i.e. around 40%), then i hope the rating for the rerun of MGIAG to go as high as BK 1st broadcast... hahaha....

imagine the 1st broadcast of both dramas is 40% for BK and 15-20% for MGIAG, then i hope the rerun will be like this, BK 12%, MGIAG 50%.

unless BK's plot gets boring/slow, it's unlikely they will change to MGIAG since they have been following BK for the past 2-3months...

that would be awesome!! since a lot of people could not watch MGIAG because they are already invested in BK so much and it is already past its halfway run, their next option is to watch the reruns!! Maybe MGIAG will break the records of rerun broadcasts!!!

I have a question...do rerun numbers have an effect on the station's overall understanding of the show's success? If I remember correctly, didn't 'You're Beautiful' have a high rerun rating? Though that didn't seem to change the station's attitude toward the drama result.
I do hope that more people watch the show this week and I think that its rational to assume that people will. Some that were watching "Baker" due to the fact there was nothing as good or entertaining on, will gravitate toward Gumiho Girlfriend, but I don't think there will be that big of a dip in their numbers. That probably won't happen until the extension is guaranteed and becomes a glitz in the storytelling [ which sadly is almost a K-drama staple, from what i have observed. ]

it's already been confirmed that there will be no extension for 'baker king, king tak gu'. the production company rejected kbs' offer to extend. it'll end at 30 episodes.

Well THANK GOD! Extensions are drama kryptonite! I haven't seen the drama myself(nor am I up on news concerning it) but regardless of the drama, I think its always wiser to keep a drama within its proposed eps.

I have a question too.. when does the re-run of the drama broadcast again? Does the re-run of my gumiho clash with the baker kim takgu?

The re-runs actually gives the broadcaster a boost of confidence. no doubt it is a good drama, its just luck cos baker kim takgu airs pretty much earlier thus naturally if the story is good it will attract more audience.

I agree with posters above that I doubt people will stop watching Baker King for MGIAG. BK already has like 20 eps and its starting to reach its climax aka high point. But on the other hand if BK's story starts slow down a bit from its current speed that MGIAG may start to rise while BK may fall.

In any case both BK and MGIAG are very good dramas. Too bad their airing in the same time slot. I recently started watching BK and its really good. Its a bit slow at first but once the story picks up it gets really good. MGIAG is also another very good romcom drama. Its cute, fun and refreshing. Good Luck to both!

I love My Girlfriend is a Gumiho so far but i've been hooked on BK nd so far episode 20 its on such a cliff hanger that i think most people will watch BK over MGIAG and also BK has like 10 episodes left so most people will prob. want to finish it so i dont think the ratings will drop but thats just my opinion.

But i love the hong sisters and MGIAG IS VERY GOOD and im loving seung gi so cutee shin mina is mad pretty =)

i was sooo pleasantly surprised. but truth is i checked out kim tak goo and watched all 20 episodes in two days ;___;... i guess it deserves its ~45% ratings because the acting is honestly pretty good~ but still i hope gumiho will go to the 20s range! esp after lee seung gi did so well in shining inheritance~~

baker king only have 10 more episodes to go so just like other people have said, i also think it'll maintain its 40% ratings till the end.

after bk ends, gumiho will still have 4 episodes left so maybe the last 4 eps will have a really high ratings, but then again, Rain and Lee Na Young's come back drama will air after BK so, we'll see.

If I was in Korea I would be watching Kim Tak Goo, then catch the re-run of Gumiho too lol. It's just that Kim Tak Goo started before Gumiho and I'm already so into it so Kim Tak Goo comes first right now.

Gumiho Girlfriend - fighting!

I don't understand why the premiere goes against such strong opponent as Baker King :( Wouldn't it be wiser to be shifted like 30 minutes earlier (at least for the first episode), and it that way to get higher ratings. This was the thing they did in Bulgaria when the tv show Survivor premiered against the newest season of the tv show Big Brother and the results were quite good, but I suppose that could be qualified as bad practice in some countries :(

Anyway, Lee Seung-gi we luv u :P

Well i do agreed with you.. i'm surprise that some people still remember this title, Volcano High (1999). I do start interesting in Korean movies, since this movies aired on my station.

But, one curious thing, in some sites this drama is titled with 'My Girlfriend is a nine Tail Fox'. For some people who love to seen a Japanese Anime series, would related it to famous anime franchise Naruto. So i start to gather infos, ...its not related at all!! But, as promotional purpose, it would make people curious. And they hit me right on the spot.. i search it.

Back to MGIAG,, I think the selling point for this drama is Shin Mina and of course Le Sung gi, a fresh look from Shinning Inheritance. WOMEN would love him. Shinning Inheritance is a big hit!!

Cant wait to seen this drama, maybe a couple month ahead, or for worse, next Year!!

BTW, is it true that every week theres two episodes aired. Im kinda confuse with this info :

Wednesday-Thursday (Aug 18-19)
....
Baker King 21-22 (KBS)
Girlfriend is a Gumiho 3-4 (SBS)
...

Maybe you guys/gals from korea or somebody who know the aired schedule would explained about it.. thanks!

Yeah, I really enjoyed Volcano High XDDD It wasn't a masterpiece or anything, but really enjoyable ^-^

They do air 2 episodes every week! I think it's because k-dramas have so many episodes, so otherwise it would take ages to finish broadcasting them XD But I'm not sure ^^' Japanese dramas air 1 a week, but they're usually around 10 episodes long, give or take a few, so that's not much : )

Are you kidding... Volcano high is a masterpiece. It's korean 'the matrix (1999)' version, i think.. ^_^. I love the FX and the comic-looks.. But, people could have their own opinion anyway..

wow. 12% isn't so bad.

Lee Seung Gi's Shining Inheritance last year started with a 5% and ended with a 47%.

@#18. lol LSG effect. but it's true, though.

1 Night 2 Days is the most popular variety show in Korea today. hovers around 30% every episode. peak was 47% as well.

Strong Heart is again, popular. 20% for a Tuesday evening talk show. it's competition, Win Win, is at 8% or less.

Shining Inheritance as well, was at 47% last year.

add the fact that he is also selling alot of albums.

LSG is so big in Korea right now it's ridiculous.
