Seo In Guk's 'Shopping King Louie' Gets Highest Engagement Ratings; Actor Talks About Military Enlistment Plans
"Shopping King Louie" received high viewership ratings when it was aired. In a recent report, the MBC drama was rated the top most drama program with most viewer engagement.
KOBACO (Korean Broadcast Advertising Corporation) released their study results for the most recent period, and "Shopping King Louie" was rated No. 1 as the program with the most viewer engagement.
During the time period between November 6 and November 11, all three major broadcasting companies wrapped up their Wednesday, Thursday dramas, making the TV ratings very competitive, but 'Shopping King Louie' came in first place.
"I want to say thank you to viewers. At first I heard that the subject was cliche. When it aired, the unique set-up and episodes were shown. The pure drama was able to reach many people and I think the good results were due to viewers enjoying it," Seo In Guk, who portrays Louie in the drama shared.
"I think I'll be going to the military," the actor answered.
Seo In Guk was approved for active-duty soldier status following a physical examination and is planning on enlisting next year.
"The military is place I definitely have to go to. My enlistment date has not come out yet, but I am planning on enlisting when my draft notice arrives," the actor added."People who know me have said that they think I will adjust well when I go to the military. Everyone has to go to the military, so I would like to enlist quietly."
But, good thing about this is the actor plans to do more things for his fans.
"I have no plans yet. However, I think fans will be sad if I don't do anything before enlisting. I'm thinking of several different things," the 29-year-old actor said.
MBC's "Shopping King Louie" ended on November 10. It starred Seo In Guk, Nam, Yoon Sang Hyun, and Im Se Mi.
