KBS2’s “Moonshine” and JTBC’s “The One And Only” have joined the fierce race for ratings!
According to Nielsen Korea, the December 20 premiere of “Moonshine” recorded an average nationwide viewership rating of 7.5 percent. This is a jump from the premiere rating of 6.2 percent for KBS2’s previous Monday-Tuesday drama “The King’s Affection,” which ended on a personal best of 12.1 percent. “Moonshine” is a drama set in the Joseon era, during the time when prohibition laws were at their strongest.

The drama is about three terminally ill women Pyo In Sook (Ahn Eun Jin), Sung Mi Do (Red Velvet‘s Joy), and Kang Se Yeon (Kang Ye Won) who meet at a hospice. They decide that before they die, they want to take down one bad guy before they go – but in their attempt to take down just one person, they end up meeting the most valuable person of their lives.
