Aaron Yan beats Jiro Wang by a nose in Sunday night idol drama ratings battle

Fahrenheit fans were torn apart last Sunday as Aaron Yan’s new drama, “Alice In Wonder City”, premiered against Jiro Wang’s “Absolute Boyfriend”.  Here’s the result you’ve been waiting for... Aaron beat Jiro by 0.01%!  However, it's hardly anything to celebrate about as it scored a disappointing 0.65% overall.  The fans believe that both dramas were hurt due to airing at the same time, causing fans to constantly switch channels to catch both.  Fahrenheit’s manager commented, “This is how the battle of idol dramas is.  (I) can only say that both of them need to work harder.”

After “Alice’s” premiere, netizens praised Aaron's acting in violin playing scenes and expressed their liking for his nice character, but the drama failed to grab viewers’ attention due to its slow pacing.  Although Jiro has been performing well in “Absolute”, netizens feel that manga adaptations have lost its power.  This is also reflected in the previous adaptations, “Skip-Beat!” and “Hayate The Combat Butler”, where both suffered in ratings. 

TTV/SETTV's "Love Forward" continued its lead with 2.45%.
