Nearing its finish, Giant hits ratings high
SBS’s Giant continues to perform extremely well in the ratings on Mondays and Tuesdays, particularly as it heads to its finish next week. The Tuesday (November 30) episode recorded its highest numbers yet with a 32.7% rating.
Giant has performed solidly through its entire run, although for most of the time it had to contend with another strong competitor in the form of MBC’s historical series Dong Yi, with KBS struggling to claim some ground with series like My Country Calls, Gumiho: Tale of the Fox’s Child, and Sungkyunkwan Scandal. Once Dong Yi moved out of the way, Giant has been able to increase upon its low-twenties ratings and surpass 30%.
Giant, which stars Lee Beom-soo, Park Jin-hee, Joo Sang-wook, and Hwang Jung-eum, will wrap up with its last two episodes next week.
Meanwhile, MBC’s Queen of Reversals pulled up a bit to double digits with a 10.8%. KBS’s Mary Stayed Out All Night, on the other hand, has been dropping viewers and recorded a 6.7% — and although I’m watching for the cute romantic bits, I’m not surprised, since the plot is seriously lacking. It’s a bummer, when you consider its potential-to-performance ratio.
We haven’t talked a whole lot about Giant on this site, but not because it’s a bad drama; from what I hear, it’s a pretty solid show, but at 60 episodes, eek!, I just don’t have the time for that kind of commitment. But here, have a few pretty pics:
