New Historical Dramas Struggling to Find Viewers

The heroines of Korean history, who had been tipped to draw huge TV soap audiences this year, are struggling with present-day realities.

SBS drama "Princess Jamyeong" only draws about 10 percent ratings and KBS' "The Iron Empress" some 15 percent. One reason may be that they failed to win the hearts of middle-aged men, the bedrock of audiences for historical drama.
