New SBS TV series “The President” became the most-watched drama in the primetime slot of Wednesday and Thursday nights.

  1. cool drama indeed.


  2. feels sorta like those polls we particpate in sometimes. starting out from the gate and slowly picking up speed, right?
    i agree marisara. i’ve been watching “Three Brothers”, and it took me a good 5 episodes before i really got interested. i love the suspense and mystery in Fungitive, not to mention JiWoo’s comic side. so curious to see how JiWoo clears himself about Kevin’s death and how he finds Medicnik (sorry, probably spelled wrong). i wonder if CloudKorea is doing anything special to promote this on their end? (just thinking out loud)


  3. it only went down because of the new drama, but I’m sure it will be on top again real soon aja aja !!!


  4. I think that second place is really good for a series that just started. I would be static to see that The Fugitive gets the first spot but second is ok too. The plot is getting complicated and emotionally charge soo lets think possitive and hope for the best. Rain’s work is impecable and I hope that when people see that warm, melt your heart side of him that just began to show in episode 4 they are going to get hooked for sure.
