'The King: Eternal Monarch' draws new record low viewership for the series


SBS’ 'The King: Eternal Monarch' ended up with its lowest viewership ratings to date.

According to Nielson Korea, the May 8th episode of 'The King: Eternal Monarch' marked average nationwide ratings of 7.0% and 8.1% for its two parts. This marks its lowest viewership ratings to date. Netizens have been complaining about the show's excessive and overt product placements, and a scenario laden with cliches. 

Some of the comments include: "I can't believe it's the same writer as 'Guardian: The Lonely and Great God' I'm still going to watch a few more to give it a chance but this is sad.", "You should have seen how bad the line was when Lee Min Ho was promoting that coffee.", "I think Lee Min Ho is bad at acting. And that makes this series even more insufferable". 

What do you think?

- the story line is too slown and boring.

- the chemistry between the leads is not that good.

- his fans were excited because LMH return, but that doesnt automatically make it a good drama.

- currently (2020): 7% rating for an expensive drama on free-to-air TV means a flop.

well, but They still can to save their kdrama, How?:

+ the leads need improve their chemistry. and acting skills too.

+ the writers need to make a better script and plot, pls, more action!

+ PD needs add several famous idols or an ultra famous kpop idol to the cast for to save the Kdrama.

Remember in real time 'Hwarang' and 'Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo'. both kdramas were criticized a lot, specially their female lead actresses because of their bad acting skills. Those 2 dramas were so bad kdramas in real time specially Hwarang but were saved by the powerful fandoms of famous idols.

• Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo was saved by Baekhyun's fandom, his fandom support this bad kdrama that even turned that bad drama to good drama, it took a 180 degree turn. If you'll watch this kdrama you will notice that the drama tried to improve but it is not that good yet, its just decent, and IU's acting skills was still bad. Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo became an OVERRATED kdrama.

• Hwarang was saved by Taehyung's fandom,and Minho fandom. Hwarang is one of the WORST KDRAMAS of all times, the plot is really bad, and its leading actress did not improve her acting skill, most of the cast needed to take acting classes. Currently this drama gains a lot of popularity and acceptance thanks to Armys, that's all.

We see that the powerful fandoms of famous kpop idols can to save bad kdramas, their fans go into all the articles and begin to write that "it" is a good drama and bla bla bla ~ despite the fact that many experts describe all those as bad dramas with bad/lack acting.
