Unsurprisingly, KBSThe Equator Man,” starring Uhm Tae Woong and Lee Joon Hyuk, took the lead again with a new personal high of 15.2% (AGB Nielsen), a 0.2% increase from the night before.

It’s highly likely that “The Equator Man” will continue to hold the lead until the end of its run. However, the competition between the other two dramas, SBSRooftop Prince,” starring Park Yoo Chun and Han Ji Min, and MBCThe King 2hearts,” starring Lee Seung Gi and Ha Ji Won, is tight as ever.

On Wednesday night, “The King 2hearts” came in second with 11.3%, while “Rooftop Prince” followed with a 10.6%. The two dramas, featuring two fine royal pain-in-the-necks – scratch that princes, switched places last night, with “Rooftop Prince” recording 11.3% and “The King 2hearts” recording 10.7%.

While the other two are putting up a good fight to avoid being last, it seems that “The Equator Man” is slowly, yet surely increasing the margins between its competitors. 

“The Equator Man” is a story about friendship, betrayal, rivalry, and revenge. It stars “Doctor Champ’s” Uhm Tae Woong, “ATHENA: Goddess of War’sLee Bo Young, “City Hunter’s” Lee Joon Hyuk, “The Princess’s Man’s” Kim Young Chul, and more.
