Popular Korean actress Song Hye-gyo will be returning to TV for the first time in four years. During a recent interview, the actress, who was recently cast in the new KBS drama series “A World of Their Own,” said although she doesn’t give too much thought to viewer ratings, she is starting to feel the pressure as the first episode’s airing date draws near.
Song added that her co-star Hyun Bin tried his best to calm down her nerves by telling her that there are good times and bad times and that she shouldn’t care too much about the viewer ratings.
“Full House” and “My Sweet Samsoon,” the two sensationally popular drama series that the two actors most recently starred in, posted average viewer ratings of 30% and 50%, respectively. Naturally, expectations are running high for the brand new drama series starring two of the most popular actors of their generation. However, tough competition is expected as “East of Eden,” a high-profile MBC drama series, has been posting high average viewer ratings of 20% to 30%.
Song says the script is easy to relate to and highly entertaining, and that the viewers will definitely be drawn into the story.
