Even though SNSD’s Yoona and Kwon Sangwoo were casted for MBC’s new Weds/Thurs drama ‘Cinderella Man'(CM), it seems like their casting has nothing to do with the viewer’s rating for this drama.
According to AGB media’s research, on 15th, CM had 7.7% viewer’s rating. Prior to CM, last episode of ‘The Return of Iljimae’ had 8.8% viewer’s rating.
On the other hand, according to TNS Media Korea, they reported a higher viewer’s rating for CM; on 15th it had 9.3% viewer’s rating, which is higher than ‘The Return of Iljimae’s viewer’s rating of 8.2%.
However, viewer’s rating for CM was significantly less than SBS’s ‘Cain and Abel’ which had 17.4%; ‘Cain and Abel’ airs at the same time as CM.

It’s been said that the rating for second episode went down to 6.7% T____T
I haven’t watch the drama yet (still waiting for the subs), but from the reviews I read, it seems like the first episode of CM was good, while the second episode was rather boring. I just hope that Cinderella Man will garner people’s interest soon.
