SBS period TV drama series “Six Flying Dragons” defended its top viewership ranking Monday. According to the March 22 report released by Nielsen Korea, the show recorded 16.2 percent in viewership ratings with the 49th episode broadcast yesterday, the same figure compared to the previous one, which aired March 15.
The TV drama has stayed over 16 percent since the 44th episode, and is likely to have slightly higher ratings Tuesday with its finale.
It has showed a big gap with other broadcasters’ competitors that air at the same time. MBC contemporary drama “Glorious Temptation” reached 11.9 percent, and KBS2’s “Baby Sitter” took 3.2 percent, both in nationwide viewership.
“Six Flying Dragons” focuses on Prince Lee Bang-won, who later becomes King Taejong, the third king of the Joseon era.
The show appears to benefit especially from actor Yoo Ah-in, who garnered great popularity with excellent performances on the big screen last year, including films “Veteran” and “The Throne.”
