Brisk start for Dr. Champ, Sungkyunkwan hits 10%

Medical-sports drama Dr. Champ premiered this week, replacing I Am Legend in the Monday-Tuesday SBS lineup, and has gotten off to a promising start with solid ratings and general praise from viewers. Episode 1 brought in a 12.4%, and Episode 2 followed that with a 12%.

For comparison purposes, I Am Legend (which got off to a solid start but began faltering in the latter half) ended on an 8.9%, so this is hopeful news for Dr. Champ. It stars Kim So-yeon and Uhm Tae-woong as doctors at Taereung, the Olympic training facility, while Jung Kyeo-woon and Cha Ye-ryun join the romantic mix as a judo player and a swimming coach, respectively.

Meanwhile, Tuesday’s Episode 10 was a noteworthy benchmark for KBS’s lush and vibrant campus sageuk drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal, which finally cracked into double digits with a 10.2% viewership rating. After getting off to a 6.3% start, the drama has been slowly but steadily inching up in the ratings, and this is good news as the series enters its second half. (It’s slated for 20 episodes.)

As for the other two big shows, MBC’s Dong Yi and SBS’s Giant retained their strong position as the leaders, now neck and neck, with the former drawing a 24.4% and the latter recording a 23.1%. If anything, I think that the fact that these two are staying so consistently high in the ratings reflects even better on Sungkyunkwan, which is managing to somehow increase its viewership even though the other shows are hardly losing any.

i'm all for SKKS...i don't even bother watching Dong Yi because I think Queen Seonduk is irreplaceable for me this year for saekguk dramas. Giant, didn't hear much about this drama except that it has a good amount of viewership following.

I just watched Dr Champ and i am able to say this is a good drama, although it only aired the first two epi, this drama has lots of potential. I dun really watch sports drama, they bored me to death. However, there's always an exception, do give it a try, it's refreshing..kke. I've always love judo and i am abosolutely loving the chharacters.

I like both UTW and Jung KW. Only got to know about UTW , when I was in Seoul for Hallyu festival, he appeared to be quite a arrogant guy.... or has style. Prefer UTW to be the leading man.Will start to watch Queen S. because of him

P.S Hallyu festival concert was fantastic.
