During the press conference for upcoming MBC drama, 'W' on July 18, Lee Jong Suk made a promise for viewer ratings.

He hesitated at first, mulling it over with, "Before, they told me not to do this, but... Through 'W', I was able to do an MBC mini-drama for the first time ever. Also, it's my first production under my new agency. If I get over 20% viewer ratings, what do you think about all of the actors as well as the high-ranking executives of the production company and [the actors'] agencies doing volunteer service?"


Sounds great to me!  Good luck!

    why do they need ratings to help out the community?? isn't volunteer service something everyone should do in their free time at least once in a while?

    I kinda had a similar question but i think let's look at the good intention. It's something that the actors can do with the production & agency executives. A hug or dance event (not saying those are bad either) would be awkward when it includes the staff & bosses right? 😁 as for LJS he's known to have done some charity projects himself

    What is up with all these promises? Is it a trend that I don't know about?

    ratings are very important with korean tv, to actors and viewers alike. actors encourage viewers to watch their show by promising to do something unusual or exciting behind the scenes. honestly though, the quality of the drama usually determines ratings.
