MBC‘s ‘When a Man Loves‘ has maintained its title as the #1 Wednesday-Thursday drama… for now.

According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, the April 24th broadcast of ‘When A Man Loves’ scored a 10.5% viewer rating, which was a 0.8% decrease from its viewer rating of 9.7% last week, but it still was enough for the drama to grab the #1 spot in its time slot once again.

Meanwhile, the April 24th premiere of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Mandate of Heaven‘ kicked off to a good start with a strong 9.3% viewer rating, which was a 1.1% decrease from the viewer ratings for the finale of its predecessor ‘IRIS 2‘.

‘When A Man Loves’ centers around the secret affair of Han Tae Sang (Song Seung Hun) and Seo Mi Do (Shin Se Kyung), and it’s been keeping fans on the edge of their seats as a love triangle unfolds. ‘Mandate of Heaven’ is also receiving praise as a well-made historical drama, which features the story of Choi Won (Lee Dong Wook) who becomes a fugitive on the run and tries to save his daughter from an illness.

Which drama are you tuning in for Wednesday-Thursday nights?

Sung Yuri and Lee Jin discussed how it felt being cast in the same drama.

Both ladies will be starring in the new SBS weekend drama ‘Secret of Birth‘, which had its press conference on the 24th at the Seoul Yangchungu SBS Mokdong Building. Sung Yuri said, “It’d be a lie if I said I wasn’t worried about starring with Lee Jin. Since the image of Fin.K.L is very strong, I was worried about how the viewers would see us. I hope people remember us not as the Fin.K.L members, but as mature characters. I think as we filmed together, we got less and less awkward.

Lee Jin added, “We didn’t get the script at the same time, but we found out afterward. I worried a lot about how I’d come out when we appear together. At first, it was a little awkward,so we kept laughing. Maybe it’s because of the time we spent together before, but we work very well now.

The drama will premiere on April 27th!

INFINITE‘s L is giving fans a sneak peak before releasing his photo essay book ‘L’s BRAVO VIEWTIFUL‘ next month.

The photo essay book features photos taken by L during a 93-day journey. He didn’t focus on his life as an idol star, but rather the feelings and lifestyle of a man in his twenties.

Woollim Entertainment stated, “L loves photography so much that the first thing he bought with his first paycheck as an INFINITE member was a camera. Recently, he has been getting close with professional photographers and is consistently studying photography. Although we’re not sure if the photos themselves may be lacking, we hope that you look fondly at the sincerity and honest stories contained in the photos.”

Only 30,000 copies will be available, so make sure to grab yourself a copy when it’s released in May!

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
