Attention is focused on the rating performance of the two most talked-about works JTBC’s “Reborn Rich” and tvN’s “Under the Queen’s Umbrella” this week.

Centering on Song Joong Ki’s character, the drama arouses keen interest by presenting speedy developments in the fierce battle between members of the chaebol family and allowing viewers to look through Korea’s modern and contemporary history.

“Reborn Rich” is the first K-drama to challenge the unusual broadcasting method by airing three episodes per week on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Its rating increase through episodes and recorded 14.9% in episode 6, which aired in the second broadcasting week. Therefore, fans are expecting the new episode 7 this week to surpass 15%.

Featuring top actress Kim Hye Soo, “Under the Queen’s Umbrella” started last month. This series depicts the turbulent court struggles that the Queen faces when she jumps into the fierce royal education war to make her troublemaker princes into proper princes. Although it was set in a fictional Joseon Dynasty, “Under the Queen’s Umbrella” still caused controversies over historical distortions. The drama’s rating went up and down many times but is still continuing its upward trend.

In particular, episode 14, which aired on November 27th, finally entered the 14% range by recording the highest viewer rating figure of 14.1%. As a result, there is a high possibility that the next broadcast of “Under the Queen’s Umbrella”, which has only 2 episodes left, will exceed 15%.

“Reborn Rich” team decided to cancel this week’s Friday broadcast (on December 2nd) to avoid the time for the World Cup match between Korea and Portugal, which will be held at 12 p.m that day. For this reason, the 7th episode of “Reborn Rịch”  and the 15th episode of “Under the Queen’s Umbrella” will face off on December 3rd in the race toward 15% rating.
