Competing against two big-scale productions, MBC’s Cunning Single Lady has been lagging behind on the ratings chart, but the drama hasn’t given up yet.
Cunning Single Lady debuted at an awkward time when SBS’ You Who Came From the Stars was sweeping the charts clean, but the drama continued on, hitting the double digits at one point.
While Cunning Single Lady has been pretty inconsistent, going up and down in numbers, it continued to deliver a light and funny story, as compared to Three Days and Age of Feeling, which both hold serious and somewhat dark premises.
With the story settled down and the suspense and mystery in action, SBS’ Three Days maintained its place at first.
Wednesday night brought a little more certainty for Three Days, ratings wise, as the gap between it and its rival KBS’ Age of Feeling began to grow, going from 12.7 percent vs 12.6 percent to 12.2 percent vs 11.0 percent respectively.
But Age of Feeling still has a chance to recover back to first, since ratings are usually a bit higher on Thursday nights, and that gap is possible to overcome.

Thursday’s ratings aren′t Three Day’s highest numbers, as it has previously recorded 12.9 on March 20’s episode. But this is the drama’s first time returning to 12 percent, and from the looks of things, it certainly won’t be its last.
