Vampire Prosecutor scores high ratings for cable

With a growing wave of original cable programming in the works and a few new cable upstarts ready to launch at the end of this year, the tv landscape is changing rapidly day by day. The good news is, it looks like gambling on bigger productions and bigger stars is paying off, at least in the ratings game. Sunday OCN drama Vampire Prosecutor launched a month ago with big-name star Yeon Jung-hoon as the lead, and in four episodes has broken 2.09% average ratings. While that’s not a huge number for a Big 3 broadcaster, it’s a significant chunk of the ratings pie for cable.

Vampire Prosecutor‘s Episode 4 recorded an episode high of 2.87%, and in some areas like Gwangju, it went as high as 3.8%. I guess they like their undead prosecutors in Gwangju? But nearly four percent is pretty much unheard of for a cable show — that number rivals some underperforming dramas on major networks. With more and more high-profile stars like Jung Woo-sung and Hwang Jung-min headlining dramas this fall/winter, I have a feeling that number’s just going to climb.

In the end, it just means more for us — more shows to choose from, more tv roles for film actors, more blood, guts, and glory. All good things in my book.

Next on the cable horizon: Flower Boy Ramyun Shop premieres Monday on tvN. Gotta have some pretty to balance the gore. Not that Vampire‘s any second fiddle in the eye candy department, mind you. I mean, what’s the point of being an undead civil servant for eternity if you can’t rock an ascot and some guyliner, amirite?

are all cable dramas pre-produced?
is that why they're often better in terms of quality compared to dramas from major networks?

No, most of the cable drama only start filming 1-2 months ahead of time like dramas on the big 3. The thing is, they have more freedom on cable for the content, they have to shoot less episodes per week, they have more time to edit, and the episodes are only 45 minutes, which allows for better pacing.

premiere on monday?! I gotta watch out for the flower boy ramyun shop, not because i'm excited but primarily because we've got tvN on cable lol. Anyone who has an idea what time will it be scheduled?! I'm eager to watch it at the same time you all do. Btw, tvN has become a channel i frequent now, with my everyday checking on DB, i'm happy to recognize more and more korean celebrities now.

I really love this handsome vampire prosecutor. And I really like stable ratings which followed cable series. "Joseon X-Files", "Birdie Buddy", and now "Vampire Prosecutor". I found cable tv give more various theme than nation tv (no offense) ^^

And next week we have "Flower Boys Ramyun Shop" aired to replace "Birdie Buddy" on tvN. Then in a few month we have "What's Up" aired on MBN. Hope those drama also got another spectacular ratings.

Fighting~ for drama cable tv!!!!

Hi JB & girlfriday,

would you be able to update the schedules for those cable dramas as well under the "Currently Airing" category so as to remind us what other great choices we can have in the coming week?

Thanks!!

Oh wow. I just got to know about this drama just like in 24 hours and now I'm hooked with it. Google-ing here and there for infos. I literally love the episodes reviews and I read all four of it in between streams. Very detailed. Kudos!

Basically, the drama's like Alex O'Loughlin's Moonlight which Alex played as a vampire PI and in this drama, Yoon Junghoon's a vampire prosecutor Min Taeyeon. But of course, this one's with it's own unique twist. =D

I really recommend this to anyone who's still shrugging and debating with him/herself to watch this or not. It's awesome. Awesome-ly awesome.

And yep, looking forward to Jung Illwoo's (aka Mr. Scheduler, hnggg!!) Flower Boy Ramyun Shop. :)
