A television drama starring Jun Ji-hyun and Kim Soo-hyun has exceeded the 20-percent mark in terms of viewership, Nielson Korea has announced.

“Man from the Stars,” which airs on SBS Television, achieved this rating in just four episodes. It is broadcast on Wednesdays and Thursdays, right on the heels of yet another popular drama, “The Heirs.”

The drama about a man from outer space (played by Kim), who has lived on Earth for 400 years, falling in love with a top actress (played by Jun) easily beat out dramas airing in the same time slot on other channels.

MBC’s “Miss Korea” recorded a national average of 7.7 percent and KBS’s “Pretty Boy” starring Jang Keun-suk was seen by 4.3 percent.

Meanwhile, broadcasting rights for “Man from the Stars” has been sold to a Chinese company.
