Two new dramas are now up against each other!
On June 23, SBS debuted its new drama “Revenant” while MBC debuted its new drama “Numbers,” both dramas compete in the same time slot and attention was focused on how well they’d perform.
“Revenant” took the top spot with its 1st episode. According to Nielsen Korea, “Revenant” scored an average nationwide rating of 9.9% for its first episode nearly crossing the double digits mark.
“Revenant” is a story about a poor young woman named San-young (played by Kim Tae Ri) who can see revenants, and a folklorist named Hae-sang (played by Oh Jung Se) who unravels mysterious deaths. Star writer Kim Eun Hee, known for works like “Sign,” “Ghost,” “Signal,” and “Kingdom,” and director Lee Jung Lim, who showed meticulous sensibility in “VIP,” joined forces for this project.
While “Numbers” premiered to 4.4% in average viewership ratings. The ratings battle is expected to be heated and an uphill battle for the MBC drama.
“Numbers” is a human office comedy that depicts the story of an accountant, who is a high school graduate, confronting irregularities in a large accounting firm and striving to achieve justice in the most unorthodox manner. It is expected to deliver a tense and captivating story as accountants uncover the irregularities within the accounting firm and strive to establish justice.
