“Happy Sunday: 1 Night 2 Days”, proved its popularity without Kang Ho Dong.
According to AGB Neilson Media Research‘s viewer rating system on October 3rd, October 2nd’s episode of KBS’Happy Sunday” received a nationwide 17.4% viewer rating, keeping its 1st place position. Although the rating dropped a mere 0.3% compared to the past week’s episode, the rating is remarkable considering the many concerns for the show without the presence of Kang Ho Dong.
The main attraction point of this episode was how the members of “1 Night 2 Days” would do without Kang Ho Dong, but the viewers’ comments on “Happy Sunday”‘s forum dealt with more of hopeful comments of how well the members performed without Kang Ho Dong, rather than how the presence of Kang Ho Dong is missed.
On the other hand, SBS’s “Good Sunday Part 1: Running Man”, which airs at the same time as “Happy Sunday”, received a 13.8% viewer rating, whereas MBC’s “Our Sunday Night Part 2: I am a Singer” received a 13.8%, as well.

I’m glad the rating is still good because the members have deliver their best for the show. But I feel weird watching the show without Kang Ho Dong, may be after a few episodes I will get use to it 🙂
