Korean actor Jang Hyuk [Sidus HQ]
The Chinese remake of hit Korean drama "All About Eve," starring actor Jang Hyuk, took the No. 1 spot in viewership ratings in China.
A press release from Jang's agency Sidus HQ said that "Eve" had scored ratings of about 40 percent during its time slot, just three days after making its premiere on China's Zhejiang Satellite TV on September 21.
A producer from the show explained, "The drama is very popular even though it finished its run on October 4. The show posted high ratings during its run and a number of broadcasting companies are interesting in airing the series on their networks as well."
The original version, which starred Jang Dong-gun, Chae Rim and Kim So-yeon, was a smash hit as well when it first aired in Korea in 2000.
