According to Nielsen Korea, the KBS2 show ‘My Little Hero (마이 리틀 히어로),’ which aired on the 4th, achieved a nationwide viewership rating of 6.3%. This is a 0.1% increase from the previous episode’s rating of 6.2%.
However, it is worth noting that ‘My Little Hero’ surpassed the ratings of the program ‘Men Managing Household 2,’ which aired during the same time slot, by 2.3%. The latter had achieved a rating of 3.9% on the 20th of last month.
Interestingly, whenever ‘My Little Hero’ is broadcasted, the concurrent program on JTBC, ‘Doctor Cha (차정숙),’ experiences a decline in viewership. On the 27th of last month, during the airing of the first episode of ‘My Little Hero,’ ‘Doctor Cha’ recorded a rating of 14.4%, which was 4.1% lower than the previous episode. Furthermore, on the 3rd, the ratings dropped even further to 14.7%, a decrease of 3.5% compared to the previous episode.
Consequently, it is speculated that some viewers of ‘Doctor Cha’ have switched channels to watch ‘My Little Hero’ to see Lim Young-woong (임영웅).
In today’s episode, Lim Young-woong revealed footage from his first overseas concert, ‘I’m Hero – in Los Angeles,’ held in the United States. He mentioned that he naturally loses about 5kg before concerts, both through practice and adjusting his diet. While currently weighing around 74kg, he says he probably will enter the 60kg range for his concerts. At the LA concert, he delivered an emotional performance, harmonizing with his fans with great stage presence.
Additionally, the broadcast also provided a sneak preview of his new song ‘Grain of Sand,’ which will be released at 6 p.m. on the 5th.
