“The Crowned Clown” is Off to a Great Start in Korean Drama Ratings

The Crowned Clown (The Man Who Became King) Korean Drama - Yeo Jin Goo

The new tvN drama The Crowned Clown (also known as Gwanghae: The Man Who Became King) starring Yeo Jin Goo (Reunited Worlds) and Lee Se Young (Hwayugi) is off to a great start in Nielsen drama ratings. It was able to bring in 5.7% for episode 1 followed by a nice increase to 6.6% for episode 2. That’s even the highest rated premiere for a Monday-Tuesday drama on tvN. So congratulations for that!

The Crowned Clown follows the story of a king (Yeo Jin Goo) who fears for his life so he brings in a kind look-a-like clown to stand in for him. A love triangle will also ensue between the two and the queen (Lee Se Young).

The Crowned Clown airs Monday and Tuesday on tvN.

    Wooww. Those are high ratings. I really am a fan of Lee Se Yong. Her acting was superb in Hwayugi. She was cute, she was seductive, she was innocent and she was evil all in one drama. That’s talent 😊

    I’ll wait for a few weeks until there are a good amount of episodes before I’ll start watching hehe.

      Yes, definitely a good start for the show. I love Lee Se Young too! She always plays great characters, especially her dual roles in Hwayugi. Loved zombie girl to pieces, hehe. I usually wait for episodes to build up to watch too. Dramas like this are horrible to wait for though since this is one of my most anticipated dramas!

        It’s a great technique to watch dramas efficiently. But I had one exception. I was literally on my toes waiting for weekly updates for still 17. That drama was special 😊

        Yey to zombie girl. I’m happy for her success this year 😊

    I watched the first two episodes and I must say, that all the praise was totally merited. If drama keeps this up, it may end up being one of my faves. It’s been a while since I watched a sageuk I was truly on board with. Of course, we’ll have to wait till the end to see what the final verdict will be. 🙂

      Oh wow, hearing such high praise from you definitely has me excited! Yes, of course, we never know how things will ultimately turn out, but it’s good to have such a promising start. It looks gorgeous, and I can’t wait to dive in myself! 🙂
