'Dae Jo Young' leading historical dramas after 'Jumong'


'Dae Jo Young' has taken the lead in the historical drama battle after the end of 'Jumong.'

The KBS drama series recorded a 29.7% viewer rating on the 25th, the best since it began airing. The average being around 25%, the ratings have risen and are looking forward to breaking the 30% point.

It is advancing past the SBS series 'Yeongaesomoon' which rated at20.7%, and is ranked third amongst the overall programs broadcasted throughout the week at 25.5%.

The story which is leading into its climax and the end of 'Jumong' along with the rival program 'White Tower' which aired in the same time slot seems to provide reason or the rising in ratings. Meanwhile, KBS drama series have been marking the top of viewer rating charts after the MBC series 'Jumong' ended.

According to the weekly ranking provided by AGB Neilson Research, the KBS daily drama series 'By Land and Sky' ranked first with 30.4% followed by the KBS series 'Blissful Woman' at 27.2%. With 'Dae Jo Young' at third, the top three ratings were of KBS.

MBC which has been constantly topping the ranks had 'Bad Woman, Good Woman' ranked 5th with 19.9% and the new series 'H.I.T.' ranked 9th with 17.3%.

As most prime time series have started simultaneously, it is forecasted that the lead of KBS continue with no clear stronghold in terms of viewer ratings.

Hello, I like the actor Dae Jo Young(Gaedong)and the series. What is the actors name and how can I get or buy a picture of him. I am not a Korean, I watch the show all the time since I found out about it. It is a very nice show. I just glued with that actor Dae Jo Young(Gaedong). I am an Asian-American female by heritage.
Thank you,
Mae Stoker

This is the first and the best experience watching this drama series. Great Casts, Great Picture and wonderful real life epic. One thing to mention is that , it is very hard to wait the whole week to see it 2 times, wishing that KBS to show this drama in a daily basis.

I am not a big TV watcher. One day while surfing the channels on cable TV I came across AZN which was playing JUMONG followed by JINI. After a single episode of these serials, I got hooked on to this channel. From that day onwards I have recorded every serial they have aired from 9:00pm to 12:00am, which includes "my lovely samsoon", "Dae Jo YOund", "Someday"... BTW - I am not an Asian

I just want to thank the Korean Film Industry for sharing their most beautiful TV series. My most favorite is Choi Su Jong who plays Dae Jo Young on that drama. He is such a brilliant and handsome actor. All the main charactor on Dae Jo Young are super good actors. I am very much impress with all of them.

I love korean drama such as emperor of the sea, jumong, and dae jo young. Even my husband love to watch it now he always called (Dae jo young) Gong Bok. And my 2 yrs old always say "Gong Bok". I felt sad that Gom Mojan was killed i like him...He is so good actor too and handsome. How i wish to watch this korean drama in the afternoon coz it's too late in the evening. I'm from philippines but living in US.

HOng Su-hyeon, who plays Princess Sukyeong, is such a great actress. she's totally unlike Park Yejin who makes Cho-rin's character WAY too emotional- almost to the point of being psycho.

OMG!Choi Soo Jong who plays Dae Joyoung is 44 years old! How does he look so young?

Hello,
Korean super star Choi Su Jong should make a movie with American super star Tom Hanks, they are both brilliant actors and plays descent roles in their films. I think it will be a very big hit.
Thank you,
Mae

Hi,
I wish we have more today of Dae Jo Young man in our society, but sad to say we have more of Li Kaigu who are possessive, selfish,selfloving,and do not know what is the real meaning of love. From what I have read about Choi Su-Jong, he is really a "Dae Jo Young". How many actors in real life that was publish as a family man- I have read one so far and that is MR. Choi Su-Jong. I really,really adore you for that. Keep the image and enjoy your life.
Your adoring fan from USA,
Mae

Hello. I came across this series late and just fell right into it. I think everyone in the series is wonderful and very well cast -- especially Dae JoYoung and Xi Rengal. I would also be interested in the DVD of this series if it was available with English sub-titles. My family has all become involved in this series also and it's my "job" to keep everyone caught up. I sometimes have to translate the English subtitles into Polish ... but that just proves what a great series it is when everyone wants to watch it. I can't wait until Monday to see what happens next.

I am a huge fan of Korean drama and movies. I happened to catch a glimpse of "Dae Jang Geum" on AZN-TV when I was channel hopping a few summer ago and was enthralled by the beautiful costumes, music and actors. I became totally hooked on the "hallyu" movement and I have watched EVERY single Korean series and movie I can find since, some more than once. I'm currently loving "Dae Jo Young" and "Air City" in the evenings and I TiVo "Here Comes Ajumma" in the afternoons to watch after work. I even joined Tiger Cinema so I can rent more Korean drama amd movies.
P.S. I'm African-American.

I am so upset because in Columbus Ohio the show went from five days a week to two days Mon and Tues. DARN IT.
I love this show.

Anonymous said...

I AM SOOOOOOOO SAD! I' sad because I never wanted DAE JO YOUNG to end and worse of all, I NEVER dreamed that AZN TV would go off the air. Maybe if we write the editor at

asianweek@asianweek.com.

we could convince them to stay on the air.

I didn't know how much I would miss these programs until they said they won't be back after April 9,2008.

Write and pray. Maybe they could come on a half day instead of 24 hours.

Does anyone besides me see a resemblance between Choi Su-Jong and Johnny Depp?

adam said...

AZN was dropped in the Columbus Ohio market on March 9 2008. I have not been able to find the last 3 episodes (134-136).

I love Dae jo young a lot, my whole family loves it! ( family of 4 ) , except for my brother. Even my father, who is not interested in these kind of shows, loves any show with dae joyoung playing ! I watch emperor of the sea on KBS now, but Everyone calls (Jang Bogo/previously Goong-bok) Dae JoYoung! I am Burmese but i live in Singapore. I'm your biggest and youngest fan cuz I'm 10 and I love dramas that my hobby is to act!
