Nothing is predictable now.

The sixth episodes of the three major dramas from the three major broadcasting systems battled fiercely this week as SBS drama “The Rooftop Prince” caught up with MBC’s “The King 2 Hearts“. KBS drama “The Equator Man” also increased its viewering percentage just past 10%.

According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, the April 5th episode of SBS drama “The Rooftop Prince” rated 12.5%.

MBC drama “The King 2 Hearts” rated 12.1% and KBS 2TV’s “The Equator Man” rated 10.2%.

The difference between “The Rooftop Prince” and “The Equator Man” is only about 2%, so there is always a chance of a ratings reversal.
