The drama “Idol” starring Hani recorded its own lowest ratings.
According to Nielsen Korea on November 17, the November 16 broadcast of JTBC’s “Idol” recorded 0.56% viewership based on paid broadcasting households nationwide. It is lower than episode 2’s 0.64% and also its own lowest ratings.
“Idol” has not exceeded the 0% range for 4 consecutive episodes since it started airing at 0.75%. At the same time, KBS2’s “The King’s Affection” recorded 8.8% nationwide, while tvN’s “Secret Royal Inspector Joy” recorded 5.1% based on paid platforms nationwide.
“Idol” drew a lot of attention as Hani, a former idol, played the lead role, but received low ratings strangely. Accordingly, some netizens pointed out that Hani’s acting and uninteresting storyline are the reasons for low ratings.
Starring Hani, Kwak Si-yang, Solbin, Han So-eun, Choo So-jung and Kim Ji-won, the drama “Idol” tells about young people who confidently throw their resignation to their dreams.
