    Good. The ratings aren't great, so this should help it's chances of continuing even further.

    Well, even if the show is dead last on the ratings it is a global powerhouse... even minor celebrities and not so well known artists get their share of international exposure because of the show... well done, RM...

    When I saw the photo, I automatically thought, "Anther controversy?". I'm so glad the international fans are keeping this show alive. So many RM controversies lately. I'm sure the new PD's working hard but he is doing something wrong because controversies surrounding RM is happening every so often and it looks like the show is practically hitting rock bottom in Korea in the rating game.
