“Master In The House 2” without Lee Seung Gi struggles with 1% ratings.. Is a rebound possible?

Season 2 of SBS entertainment program “All The Butlers”, which started its first broadcast in the new year, is struggling with ratings.

Master In The House 2“, which took a break for 3 months to reorganize, started its first broadcast on January 1st, the first day of the new year. Former baseball player Lee Dae Ho and singer BamBam joined as new members, completing the final 6-member system and kick-starting season 2.

However, despite new attempts such as member reorganization, viewership ratings are experiencing a downward trend. The first episode of Season 2 on January 1st recorded a rating of 1.9% (Nielsen Korea, nationwide), while the 2nd episode on January 8th also maintained the 1% level. In the case of “Master In The House” season 1, the viewer ratings were in the 3-5% range, but season 2 is starting at a lower level than this for two consecutive episodes.

The biggest change in Season 2 of “Master In The House” is the absence of Lee Seung Gi, an original member. The famous actor is in the process of fighting a lawsuit with his former agency Hook Entertainment over settlement issues, and thus was unable to participate.

SBS hoped for Lee Seung Gi’s return, saying, “We’re going to start recording with the existing members while waiting for Lee Seung Gi.” At the opening of the first broadcast, Yang Se Hyung and other members also shouted “Seung Gi”, expressing concerns over the fact that “no one can proceed.”

Unlike “Running Man”, which doubled in ratings after reorganization during the same period as “Master In The House 2”, the latter is still struggling. In the January 8th broadcast, member Lee Dae Ho drew attention by revealing his family and house, and attention is being focused on whether “Master In The House 2” will be able to captivate viewers with the members’ closer relationship and fresh and attractive future episodes.
