As the battle between the 3 broadcast stations come to a close, “Rooftop Prince” emerged victorious in the last round.
KBS2TV’s “The Equator Man” and MBC’s “The King2Hearts” as well as SBS’s “Rooftop Prince” started their broadcast on 21 May, and ended on 24 May.
The ratings war for these dramas were intense. Initially, it was “The King2Hearts”. This drama started off with a viewership of 16.2%, with “Rooftop Prince” at 9.8% and “The Equator Man” at 7.7% ratings.
However, after just 2 weeks, the ratings gap between the 3 stations’ dramas became a lot closer, and the battle intensified. On 5 April, the 6th episode of “Rooftop Prince” hit ratings of 12.5%, overtaking “The King2Hearts” which recorded 12.1% to take the top position. But due to the goverment elections, both “Rooftop Prince” and “The King2Hearts” delayed their broadcast, and with only “The Equator Man” airing, it recorded ratings of 14.3% and caught up with the others.
“The Equator Man” managed to maintain its top position, aside for the day after the elections (12 April) when it was beaten by “Rooftop Prince”, till the last episode, but “Rooftop Prince” managed a dramatic comeback and took over the no. 1 spot for this final episode.
