That’s a very confident statement.
Kim Jae Won’s last drama, Can You Hear My Heart (CYHMH), was indeed a MBC’s weekend drama, just like this upcoming May Queen.
CYHMH was also averaging at 15 % during its showing.

But his previous MBC drama’s Wonderful Life (2005) was only averaging around 12 %.

Melodrama May Queen will debut on August 18 and will compete head-to-head with SBS’ Five Fingers. Both drama have a quite similar recipe, a melodrama with revenge and betrayal.
