|MBC historical drama "The Duo" [MBC]|
MBC historical series “The Duo” has risen as the new champion on the Mondays and Tuesday’s primetime slot, according to the findings by the two media research companies on Wednesday.
Data by Total National Multimedia Research (TNmS) showed that “The Duo,” starring Chun Chung-myung, Lee Sang-yun and Han Ji-hye, scored an average viewership rating of 14.2 percent and on AGB Nielsen Media Research’s (AGB) survey, 17.6 percent.
This week’s story made a time leap of 10 years to show how the teenagers settled as adults -- Dong-nyeo (played by Han) became the mistress of a private army to protect merchants, Chun-dung (Chun) a leader of the pack that assists Dong-nyeo, Gwi-dong (Lee) a government official who investigates crime and Dal (Seo Hyun-jin) a skillful shoe-maker.
Coming in second place was SBS drama “Midas” starring Jang Hyuk, Kim Hee-ae and Lee Min-jung which posted an average viewership rating of 11 percent on TNmS' chart and 12.4 percent on AGB’s poll, showing about two percent improvements from last week.
The latest episodes showed intensified conflict between the siblings of the conglomerate Yoo family after illegitimate daughter Yoo In-hye (Kim) is named the ad hoc heir to the family fortune with the help of the family's lawyer Do-hyun (Jang).
Starring Song Il-gook, Lee Jong-hyuk and Song Ji-hyo, the first two episodes showed the confrontation between detective Park Sae-hyuk (Song) and crime suspect Lee Dong-suk (Lee Min-woo).
