First episode of Hero drew rating record

First episode of Hero, new drama from cable channel OCN, easily beaten all its competitor when it’s aired on Sunday, March 18. According to AGB Nielsen, Hero’s first episode, titled Birth of Hero, averaged at 1.9% and reached highest rating at 2.4%.

Definitely amazing rating for a pilot episode of a cable channel !It means all the whooping 1 billion Won production cost is paid off.

The first episode of Hero tells an impressive process of a hero-birth when a trouble maker -son of a rich family- Heuk Chul (played by Yang Dong Geun) transforms into a hero. Yang Dong Geun shows fascinating real action in the fighting scene with Japan actor Otani Ryohei.

Hero also entertains viewers with its modern-future-imaginative technology such as Heuk Chul transparent smartphone, voting through eyeball recognition and the amazing virtual city Muyoung which brings viewer fast forward to the future.

It makes the 100 minutes first episode goes by so fast and Hero’s official homepage was suddenly flooded with praises from the audience.

So, it’s a must see drama y’all !!
