KBS2’s “The Miracle We Met” maintained its strong position on the weekly TV chart by taking the No. 2 spot, data showed Tuesday.

The miraculous story about an extremely confused man whose life has been upended overnight garnered a score of 241.8 on the weekly Content Power Index (CPI) for April 9 to 15.

Written by popular scriptwriter Baek Mi-kyoung of “Strong Girl Bong-soon” and “The Lady in Dignity,” “The Miracle We Met” tells a story about the man who has to live in the body of a complete stranger with the same name, age and birthday but a completely different life.

During a press conference last month, the writer said she was well aware of the concerns that the subject might be too banal in Korean dramas.

But she said she would tell her story in a different way.

“Honestly, I’ve seen more than 10 dramas with this subject. I know it is all too familiar and boring. But as you might all be aware, I am not the kind of writer who repeats the same old story,” she said at that time.

The index, created by CJ E&M and Nielsen Korea, measures the level of popularity, trending on social media sites and influence on consumer behavior of entertainment TV programs aired on three major terrestrial networks - MBC, SBS and KBS - and seven cable channels owned by CJ E&M, including tvN, Mnet and OCN, during prime time.

JTBC, another cable network that airs some highly popular entertainment shows and dramas, was not included in the survey.
