New Korean drama Pinocchio gets off to a promising start. The highly anticipated SBS series received 7.8% in its premiere episode this week, according to AGB Nielsen ratings. It trailed MBC's Mr. Baek, which had 11.6%, but ranked much higher than KBS's Blade Man at 3.2%.

Despite the slow start, viewers posted positive messages about the series online. They even believe it could have the same positive results as SBS's hit 2013 drama I Hear Your Voice. The projects share the same director, writer, and leading actor Lee Jong Suk.  Episode one was about class clown Dal Po, played by Lee Jong Suk, going against the top student in school on a television quiz show.
