Although SBS’s “Kim Yuna’s Kiss & Cry” already changed their broadcast time, it seems that the show is still receiving poor ratings as according to AGB Nielson Media Research, the viewer ratings of the June 5th broadcast of the show was 5.7%, which is 2.5% lower than their May 29th broadcast, which came in at 8.2%.
“Kiss and Cry” was broadcast during the second segment of the “I Like Sunday” corner for the first time, as the show had previously been broadcast in the first segment at 5:20 PM. ”Kiss & Cry” was the follow-up program to “Heroes” and its time slot was switched with “Running Man“, which was originally aired during the first segment, in hopes of better ratings.
However, things didn’t turn out good again. Though the show was placed in the first segment to get better ratings, it faced competition from rival shows such as MBC’s “I Am A Singer” and KBS 2TV’s “Qualifications of Men“. Therefore, its order was switched with “Running Man” once again, but the show faced another embarrassment as the show got lower ratings than before.
On the other hand, “Running Man” had 7.0% viewer ratings, which exceeds their previous week’s 6.2% rating.
