According to the Nielsen Ratings, "Arang Magistrate" recorded 13.3%, "Bridal Mask" 19.4% and "To the Beautiful You" recorded 7.3%.

"Arang Magistrate" portrays a dead woman's spirit who requests that the magistrate avenge her death. The lady ghost Arang(played by Shin Min Ah) wishes to know what happened to her and her death and approaches brash and rude magistrate Eun Oh(played by Lee Jun Ki). It is a fantasy romance story that is based on an old folklore. 

"Arang Magistrate" began a happy journey with double-digit ratings, mostly due to the actors. However "To the Beautiful You," which relies on idol actors, seems to have a long way to go if they want to catch up. 

"To the Beautiful You" deals with an injured and despairing prodigy high jumper Kang Tae Jun and his fan, Koo Jae Hee, who disguises herself to get close to him. 

Since its premiere in May, "Bridal Mask" has been #1 during the Weds/Thurs block and people are wondering if it will be able to keep the spot as new dramas appear on the scene.
