In its debut on Dec. 19, the drama failed to fulfill the high expectation to score the good rating. “Hwarang” was only able to score a 6.9 percent rating nationwide in the AGB Nielsen Korea as reported by Yonhap News Agency . The SBS drama “Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim” stayed very strong with 22.6 percent viewership ratings.
While in the TnMS rating, “Hwarang” Episode 1 tallied 7.9 percent and declined in the next episode to 6.9 percent. “Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim” still takes the major attraction of the Monday and Tuesday night drama with 19.7 percent and 21.6 percent. This surprising result highly on the opposite side of the expectation. In its o official statement , KBS World TV was confident to mention the drama has been the talk of the town before it began to air. During the official introduction of the drama in a press conference on Dec. 16 in Seoul, KBS was assured the drama would be able to perform well.
