Uncontrollably Fond ratings have declined again after significantly improving last week. The decrease in its viewership has resulted to a bigger lead for MBC?s hit drama W Two Worlds.
Airing in KBS every Wednesday and Thursday night, Uncontrollably Fond stars Kim Woo Bin as an arrogant celebrity named Shin Joon Young. He falls in love with an independent documentary producer named No Eul, played by Suzy Bae. However, their love story is repeatedly hounded by a lot of misfortunes and issues involving their families? pasts.
Based on ratings reviews released last week, the show?s viewership in Seoul National Capital Area increased to 9.9 percent from 8.1 percent. The TNmS report also stated that its nationwide viewership went up to 9.6 percent from 7.3 percent.
A similar review from Nielsen Korea also showed that audience share in Seoul National Capital Area jumped to 10.6 percent from 7.8 percent. Nationwide ratings also increased to 9.9 percent from 7.9 percent. It was the series? first time to again receive a double digit rating, since the last one was all the way back in Episode 8.
However, the most recent data revealed that Uncontrollably Fond ratings have gone down again. According to ATimes, audience share fell back to just 8 percent this week.
The decline has given MBC?s W Two Worlds a bigger lead. The fantasy drama reportedly garnered a viewership share of 12.3 percent. Starring Han Hyo Joo and Lee Jong Suk, the series has been widely followed because of its unique webtoon-based plot.
The mediocre ratings of Uncontrollably Fond was addressed by its male lead star earlier this month. In an official statement posted on Woo Bin?s fansite, the actor said that he is ?embarrassed.? He humbly apologized to fans who might have been disappointed with the series.
The 27-year-old also acknowledged that people had high expectations when the show premiered last July. This is especially since KBS had promoted it as their follow-up to the network?s highly successful Descendants of the Sun.
