Netizens turn their backs on KBS as their dramas ratings hit record low

Despite being one of the top broadcasting channels in all of Korea, KBS has been performing poorly in terms of drama ratings. 

With the year coming to a close, it appears that no KBS weekday drama will be able to average higher than 10% in viewership for the year. Despite boasting popular dramas such as HealerWho Are You – School 2015, and Oh My Venus, the channel has not been meeting expectations in terms of ratings. Netizens have expressed their opinions on the issue, noting that the channel’s performance might be attributed to reasons such as poor plot lines or inferior picture quality.
