On Tuesday night, Kwon Yul (Lee Bum Soo) made a move after tiptoeing around Nam Da Jung (Yoona) and his feelings for her.

It must be the miracle of love, because ratings for KBS’ Prime Minister and I did not decrease at all. The ratings didn’t increase either, but for Prime Minster and I to stay past the five percent range, it is something to be excited for as the drama previously struggled with lower ratings.

Meanwhile, MBC’s Empress Ki climbed up to 19.1 while SBS’ A Warm Word entered into two digits with 10.5 percent.
