The ratings battle has begun for the Monday-Tuesday dramas Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Goryeo and Moonlight Drawn By Clouds. The two went head to head for the first time on August 29 & 30. And many of us are a little surprised by the results!
Last week, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds premiered to 8.3% on Monday and 8.5% on Tuesday while competing with Doctors’ final episodes. But with Doctors out of the way this week, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds more than doubled in ratings with 16% for Monday. Tuesday it increased even more to 16.4%.
Long running melodrama Monster came in second place with 10% on Monday and 10.8% on Tuesday.
Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Goryeo premiered with 7.4% for it’s first episode and 9.3% for its second on Monday. Tuesday it fell slightly to 7% with its third episode leaving the drama in third place.
Now that both of the new dramas have several episodes out, it will be very interesting to see how things shape up next week.
Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Goryeo airs Monday & Tuesday on SBS.
Moonlight Drawn By Clouds airs Monday & Tuesday on KBS.
