With the exit of KBS’s popular series “King’s Family,” the broadcaster’s new series “Wonderful Days” and SBS drama “Love from Star” topped the overall weekly TV chart.

AGB Nielsen Media showed on Monday that the two shows were the most-watched programs of the week of February 17 to 23, both scoring average viewership ratings of 27.1 percent.

“Wonderful Days,” starring Kim Hee-seon and Lee Seo-jin, is a 50-part weekend drama and with its ratings having shot up by 6.5 percentage points in just two episodes, it will be worth seeing whether the show becomes as successful as its predecessor which ended with ratings in the upper 40 percent range.

Wednesday-Thursday primetime drama “Love from Star,” which has seen its ratings climb every week since its premiere in mid-December of last year, may score its highest ever mark for its finale episode this week.

In the meantime, “Melody of Love,” KBS’s weekday show, stayed in third place on the chart with a close average mark of 27 percent and MBC’s Monday-Tuesday series “Empress Ki, Battle of Flowers” remained fourth with an average figure of 25.7 percent.

KBS’s prime time news show “KBS News 9” rounded off the top five programs with an average mark of 20.3 percent.
