The viewing rate of SBS TV’s new drama series Faith has been slightly increased.
On August 22, AGB Nielsen Media Research reported that the fourth episode of Faith, which aired on August 21, recorded viewer ratings of 11.5%. It’s 1.2% higher than the third episode’s (10.3%).
In the episode, Choi Young (played by Lee Min Ho) tells King Gong Min (played by Ryu Duk Hwan) that he used to be a member of Jeok Wol and why he wants to leave the palace. Jeok Wol is a group of warriors who fight to protect Goryeo regardless of their origins. However, the king who took power at that time not only insulted Jeok Wol but also ordered a female subordinate to take off her clothes because he was hooked on liquor and sex.
Choi Min Soo, who makes a cameo appearance as a leader of Jeok Wol in the series, also attracts a lot of attention. Choi gets stabbed by the king as he tries to save the female subordinate. However, he dies swearing allegiance to Goryeo. Choi Young is outraged at this but gets forced to swear allegiance to the king, who killed his leader. He reveals that he has always been loyal to the kingdom but hasn’t always been sincere.
Ki Cheol also starts to stand against King Gong Min by attacking Eun Soo (played by Kim Hee Sun).
MBC TV’s Golden Time recorded viewer ratings of 14.6% and KBS 2TV’s Haeundae Lovers recorded 9.3%.
