JTBC’s “Monthly House Magazine ” has failed to seize a chance to rebound in ratings due to overlapping with tVN’s popular drama”Hospital Playlist 2.”
“Monthly House Magazine” is a drama that airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 9 p.m. and overlaps with “Hospital Playlist 2,” which airs at 9 p.m. on Thursday. From the first episode to the eighth episode aired on the 8th, “Monthly House Magazine” recorded 3.2%, 2.3%, 2.4%, 1.7%, 2.2%, 2.0%, 2,4% and 2.0%. This shows that the ratings for “Monthly House Magazine” on Wednesday, when “Hospital Playlist 2” is not aired, are higher every time than Thursday, the day of “Hospital Playlist.”
“Monthly House Magazine” is a romantic comedy-drama in which Jung So-min and Kim Ji-Seok work together to prepare their own house with a woman living at home and a man buying a house. As it is based on real estate that many people are interested in, it drew attention even before the show, raising expectations for a real-life story. However, it seems difficult to win viewers over “Hospital Playlist 2.” with its plot reminiscent of a sitcom and a story that has yet to break away from the existing romance.
On the other hand, ‘Hospital Playlist 2’ is 20-year-old chemistry between people who live day by day in a hospital called the miniature version of life, and their 20-year-old friends who can only be seen by their eyes. Hospital Playlist which is loved by viewers for its mala-flavored healing drama once again broke its own record with an 11 percent viewer rating in the fourth episode aired on the 8th.
