As a result "Goddess of Fire" and "Empire Of Gold" pushed "Shark down into third place in this week's ratings.
On "Goddess of Fire," Moon Geun Young's character Yoo Jung is finally reunited with her childhood best friend Kim Tae Do, played by Kim Bum. As gallant and protective as ever, Tae Do rescues Jung Yi from a river and some bullies, even though he does not initially recognize her because of her boy disguise. The drama about the first female Korean potter reached AGB Nielsen Media Research ratings of 11.8 percent by its second night.
In second place was "Empire of Gold," the SBS drama about three people locked in a battle for the control of a conglomerate. The multi-generational saga covers two decades in the lives of the family controlling the business. The series, which stars Go Soo, Lee Yo Won and Son Hyun Joo, reached second place this week with ratings of 10.7 percent.
