SBS’s new Wed-Thurs drama “Man from the Stars” has a strong debut getting 15.6% of the viewership according to the Nielson Korean Ratings. This is 4% increase in ratings from the debut of the previous SBS drama “The Heirs” which occupied the same time slot.
MBC’s new drama “Miss Korea” debuted with 7% of viewership, up 1.7% from the final episode of “Medical Top Team” ratings last Thursday.

On December 17, Park Shin Hye attended a press conference for “The Heirs” and talked about how she felt about the drama after it aired its final episode.
When asked who she would pick between Kim Tan and Choi Young Do in real life, she replied, “If you told me I had to pick one between the two? That would be difficult. Wouldn’t you have to think about your future in-laws and stuff related to that? Young Do’s father is scary, but since he won’t ever lay a hand on a woman, I suppose he might be better than the rest. I guess I personally would prefer someone who listens to me, but I still think I would choose Tan.”
When asked to pick between Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin in real life, she joked, “It would be perfect if you could combine half of the qualities from each of them into one guy

On December 16, MBC’s “Miss Korea” held a press conference before the drama’s first broadcast. In regards to the drama’s timeslot, Lee Sun Kyun expressed, “It would be a lie if I said that I didn’t care about the other drama. It has distinguished actors, it’s on the same day, and it’s on the same time, so I am worried. Honestly. Our drama has its own merit. I believe our drama is up for the competition. Our actors have really good chemistry, and combined with our team work, we will excel.”
Furthermore, SBS’ “Man from the Stars” will continue after the high ratings of the previous drama, “The Heirs
With all the husband hullaballoo, sometimes the secondary characters feel a bit too secondary, but then they’ll step to the fore with something really sweet. It’s easy to get caught up in the Oppa-Chilbongie wars (omg you guys are killing me with them), but this drama has a lot more to offer than fanwars and shipping, which is actually why I think it’s doing itself a disservice to be so coy with the “Who is he?” gimmick. Because when the show is all about the small, revealing character moments, it’s totally got my heart.
EPISODE 15: “The people who changed me, Part 2″
It’s January 1996, and Na-jung is caught in a fierce tug-of-war with Garbage in the front yard… because she’s trying to sneak him into her room at night and he’s resisting
Actor Lee Min Ho, who recently wrapped up filming of his hit SBS drama “The Heirs,” left a message and video on his official Facebook account, saying goodbye to the drama and his character, Kim Tan, and cheering on his fans.
Lee Min Ho wrote, “I was happy the past four months as Kim Tan. I hope that everyone also gains courage from ‘The Heirs’- forward!” “Forward” was one the phrases that Kim Tan liked to say to Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye) when he was asking her to have courage.
The actor also revealed a behind the scenes video of the last day of shooting of “The Heirs,” which shows Lee Min Ho saying goodbye and thanking the staff of the drama. Though it was a blustery and snowy day in Seoul, the bright smiles of Lee Min Ho and the staff could not be kept down.
In the video at around the 0:13 mark, Lee Min Ho is asked what Kim Tan is to him

Well the time has come, “The Heirs” has finished. If you want to cry, we’ll have a moment of silence for those going through early withdrawal symptoms. We didn’t get a terrible ending, not everyone got a happy ending, but it wasn’t too open that left me guessing. I don’t like being left guessing after an ending, it feels so unsatisfying. So what were some major moments and some of my favorite scenes from the final week? Let’s find out.
Won and Hyun Joo Break Up
Can’t say I didn’t see this one coming, we had all the signs in what little screen time our Tan/Eun Sang mirrored couple had

With the conclusion of SBS’ drama “The Heirs, “ viewers could not help notice something ‘extra’ among the last few scenes.
The last episode of the drama, which aired on December 12, included a moment in which Kim Tan, played by Lee Min Ho, envisioned a future scene in which he holds a party at his house. Being of wealth and status, Kim Tan imagined a future involving luxurious food, people, and atmosphere.
However, viewers could not help but notice a beauty amongst the background extras. Shown for a mere three to four seconds, a waitress walking by offering champagne stood out in the background.
Despite the extra’s brief appearance, the internet buzzed wildly about the unknown beauty as people began to take note of her resemblance to actress Kim Tae Hee. The nameless extra’s ability to stand out in the backgrounds raises questions as to whether we can soon expect to see her in a future drama of her own
Who knew that WINNER member Kang Seung Yoon used to resemble the ultimate flower boy Goo Jun Pyo?
The idol’s passport picture was revealed on the group’s own reality show MNet’s “WinnerTV” on December 13. The group members were passing time on their way to the airport, and they decided to take turns showing their passport photos. Kang Seung Yoon was the last one to give a peek of his passport after fellow members Lee Seung Hun, Nam Tae Hyun, Kim Jin Woo, and Song Min Ho had shown theirs.
Before letting the camera film the passport page, the members got a preview of the photo. Immediately after seeing the leader’s picture, all of them burst into laughter. Member Nam Tae Hyun said while laughing, “So this is how Kang Seung Yoon can change

The end has finally come and it’s time to let SBS’ The Heirs go. All the characters have provided us with some sweet moments in the past several weeks and we’re a bit sad that we must part ways with them.
So here is our last set of top moments.
Thanks for reading all 16 episodes’ worth!
Moon Joon Young: Why are you here? Are there things left to torture me with?
Choi Young Do: It’s not like that. I came to say I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Sincerely. I apologize. I’m really sorry.
Moon Joon Young I’m surprise you’re a person who apologizes, but if you’re really sorry, then live the rest of your life in guilt
It’s only a short teaser, but we get a ten-second look at the characters of tvN’s upcoming I Need Romance 3, which looks to carry the same breezy rom-com feel of the first two series. This round has my favorite cast so I’m hoping it’ll stick (I enjoyed what I saw of the other two seasons but didn’t finish either), because how can you resist Sung Joon in a romantic comedy and Kim So-yeon allowed to be that odd combination of sexy, sultry, and goofball that makes her so appealing?
Based on the preview, it looks like the trio of best friends in this round will be played by Kim So-yeon, Yoon Seung-ah (Empire of Gold), and Park Hyo-joo (The Chaser). There are a few other ladies in the cast, but they’re being set up more as rivals than buddies; Wang Ji-won (most recently Won’s fiancée in Heirs) will have a loveline with the other leading man, Namgoong Min
“Beautiful Man” ratings have seen a slight uptick.
According to Nielsen Korea, the episode of KBS 2TV Wednesday-Thursday drama “Beautiful Man” broadcast on December 12 (Episode 8) recorded a nationwide rating of 3.1%. This was a 0.2% improvement from the previous day’s viewership rating of 2.9%.

So began their fake relationship, and an awkward date ensued. Myo Mi finally reveals her hidden secret at the end of the episode.
Meanwhile, both SBS’ “The Heirs” and MBC’s “Medical Top Team” aired their final episodes, recording 25
Even though the drama has ended, SBS The Heirs’s two stars Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin’s drama fashion remains a hot trend.
Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) and Choi Young Do (Kim Woo Bin) acted opposite each other as childhood friends, who became rivals due to a twist of events and competed for the love of Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye).
The two showed contrasting fashion styles throughout the drama, reflecting their different characters.
Lee Min Ho’s coats and Kim Woo Bin’s leather jacket and sneakers have been listed as the top searched words on internet sites and the stores are continuing to sell out those items.
One rep from the fashion industry said, “Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin’s fashion in the drama became an interest to many. The golfwear that the two actors wore also earned a 280% increase in sales
We say good-bye to SBS’ The Heirs as the series came to an end on Thursday night.
Loose strings were tied up as each character tried to find a reason to smile. Of course, not everyone found happiness and tears were spilled for some who would have to carry the burden of the crown they carried.
Overall, theseries ended on a light and fluffy note, leaving viewers in good moods, allowing the drama to record 25.6 percent, its highest since its first episode.
MBC’s Medical Top Team also concluded its run with 5.6 percent.
