Despite lots of buzz and anticipation, Girls' Generation's comeback special "Romantic Fantasy" did not bring in many viewers, receiving surprisingly low ratings.
The MBC special only garnered a rating of 3.8% according to Nielson viewing data, causing many people to question why the program much worse than expected.
Many people point to the fact that the program aired on New Years late at night (11:45 PM); however, other shows such as KBS 2TV's "Win Win" and SBS' "Thank You" garnered ratings of 11.4% and 7.4% respectively.
With the show in such a bad time slot, it is possible that only the more hardcore Girls' Generation fans bothered to watch the program.
While "Romantic Fantasy" may have been a disappoint in rating, the group's new album "I Got a Boy" has been the exact opposite, achieving an all-kill in Korea, charting in the top 20 on the US iTunes album chart and amassing millions of views for their new music video in hours.
