‘Wonderful Days’ Falls in Numbers Despite Regular Broadcast

By in News posted Oct April 21st, 2014 No comments

Unlike the other programs, KBS’ Wonderful Days was the only broadcast to air regularly on Saturday and Sunday.

Despite that fact, Wonderful Days did not see a rise in ratings. Instead, it experienced a decrease. The reason is not certain, but it could be that viewers were not aware that the drama was airing in the midst of all the broadcast cancellations, or they were more focused on waiting for updates in the ongoing SEWOL tragedy.

As of April 21, Monday night variety shows are canceled, with dramas, such as SBS’ God’s Gift – 14 Days and MBC’s Empress Ki on standby, depending on how the situation continues.

On March 30’s episode of Superman is Back, Choo Sarang’s mother invited some of the SNSD members after seeing that they were fans of Choo Sarang.

Feeling shy with strangers around, Choo Sarang stayed close by her parents, no matter what the SNSD members did. But the girls inched closer to the toddler by reading her Peter Pan with funny voices, playing with her, and giving her Mickey Mouse presents.

Choo Sarang eventually opened up to SNSD, but refused to give them kisses, using the new word ‘No’ that the members actually taught. Realizing their mistake, Tiffany quickly taught Choo Sarang how to say ‘Yes’ and ‘Ok,’ but still failed to receive kisses
