This is the lowest viewer rating record of “Idol” following the 7th episode. “Idol”, which started broadcasting on Nov 8th, has been having a viewer rating of 0.4 to 0.8%, remaining in the 0% range.
The drama “Idol” tells the story of young people who choose to live with all their might for a dream that cannot be achieved only with efforts and a reality without hope.
It contains the story of girl group Cotton Candy, who are practically pushed aside as their junior group Mars succeeds while their group flops pathetically. It was even evaluated that it realistically showed what was happening in the entertainment industry.
