Korean dramas’ male leads usually make this kind of promise to fans.
Lee Jun Ho further doubled his sweet charm to capture fangilrs’ hearts by the love story King Jeongjo-Royal Consort Sung Deok Im, which is considered a famous romantic story of the 18th century, in his latest historical drama.
In the drama “The Red Sleeve” , every word and action of Deok Im (Lee Se-young) made him pay attention, so he couldn’t hide his feelings and burst into laughter or anxieties. In the 7th and 8th episodes, he asked Deok Im why she didn’t receive the tangerines he brought, “It’s just a fruit, so what’s the reason not to receive them? Be happy to receive them. OK?” He added, “Are we talking about tangerines now?” and expressed his feelings by comparing them to tangerines, raising viewers’ affection.
Meanwhile, MBC’s Friday-Saturday drama “The Red Sleeve,” in which Lee Jun Ho is acting as the male lead, topped the drama index section of the most talked-about TV show category and the most talked-about drama-nondrama category for the fourth consecutive week in December, according to statistics released by Good Data Corporation, a TV topic analysis agency. As of December 3rd, its rating surpassed 10%. The eighth episode, which aired on December 4th, recorded 10.5% of the nation’s ratings based on Nielsen Korea, exceeding the double-digit rating standard.
Earlier, during the production presentations of MBC’s entertainment programs ‘Radio Star‘ and ‘The Red Sleeve‘, Lee Jun Ho made a promise, “If the ratings exceed 15%, I will wear a Dragon robe (worn by Joseon kings) and dance to “My House.”
Netizens are focusing their attention on whether that day will come if the drama’s rating continues to rise and surpass 15%, and whether we can watch the “My Palace” version of “My House” by Joon-ho.
MBC’s “The Red Sleeve” airs every Friday and Saturday at 9:50 p.m.
