"Good Manager" maintained a firm grip on its lead in the Wednesday-Thursday TV drama race while "Saimdang, Memoir of Colors," also saw a small uptick, data showed Friday.
Episode 10 of "Good Manger," which aired Thursday night, recorded 17.2 percent viewership, according to Nielsen Korea. It fell 0.6 percentage point from last week but still dwarfed its rivals in the same time slot.
SBS TV's "Saimdang" stood at 10.1 percent, up 0.3 percentage point, and MBC TV's "Missing 9" clocked in at 4.6 percent, also adding 0.5 percentage point. In a head-to-head matchup with mega "hallyu" star Lee Young-ae, actor Namgoong Min and his show "Good Manager" have pulled off one of the bigger upsets in recent Korean TV history.
