MBC's historical series "Dong Yi" has regained a slight lead in the competition of Monday and Tuesday night dramas, becoming the most-watched show in the country for the 20th straight week.

Figures from TNmS (Total National Multimedia Statistics) on Wednesday indicated that "Dong Yi", into its 46th episode, saw its viewership ratings increase by an average 1.7 percent compared to the previous week, with ratings of 24.7 percent on August 23 and 26.8 percent the following night.

Data released AGB Nielsen Media Research pointed out that the drama, starring Han Hyo-joo and Ji Jin-hee, scored ratings of 24.3 percent on Monday night and a 0.8 percentage point increase on Tuesday.

This week's episode focused on how King Sukjong (Ji Jin-hee) shows his love for Dong Yi (Han Hyo-joo) and fatherly affection for his son, Youngjo (child actor Lee Hyeong-seok).

Meanwhile, SBS' series "Giant", about three siblings who were separated after losing their parents and later come together to seek revenge for them, trailed behind "Dong Yi" as the No. 2 show in the country.

On TNmS charts, "Giant" raked in ratings of 24.7 percent on August 23 while the figure dropped by 3.1 percent the next day. Ratings for the show decreased on AGB's survey as well, recording figures of 22.4 percent on Monday and 21 percent on Tuesday night.
