MBC Wed-Thurs drama 'Playful Kiss' is now showing signs of its stationary status.
On the 30th, according to ratings research center AGB Nilson Media Researches, Playful Kiss that aired on 29th night recorded nationwide ratings of 4.5%.
This number is actually 1.3% lower than its last episode broadcasted on 23rd with 5.8%.
Such a sight shown could be seen as a result of the verging against the very first broadcast of KBS2 'Fugitive PLAN B' starring Jung Jihoon (Rain), Lee Nayoung etc.
In reality, this day's 'Fugitive' recorded ratings of 20.7%, with such high ratings recorded on its first ever broadcast, it shows the amount of support it receives from audiences.
Albeit the low ratings for Playful Kiss, actors Kim HyunJoong and Jung Somin have been dwelving alot of hard work into their characters, so there is much anticipation to how this will work out lke in days to come.
On the other hand, on this day's same timing slot on SBS, 'My girlfriend is Gumiho' recorded nationwide ratings of 16.6%.

With 'Fugitive' exceeding the 20% ratings as it becomes the hot-cake in demand like this, this could be credited to the luxurious casting with people like the successor of previous 'Baker King Kim Tak Goo' - Rain, Lee Nayoung etc, in addition to that also comes 'Chuno' 's solid combination of Chun Sung-il and Kwak Jung-hwan, which is probably why anticipation for this drama is reflected like this in its ratings.
