Korean Drama Ratings: Highlights

1. The Miracle We Met finishes broadcast with 13 percent viewership. KBS2’s The Miracle We Met finished off its broadcast with 12.6 and 13.1 percent nationwide viewership ratings for its last two episodes. These figures are even higher in the Seoul area, at 13.0 and 13.5 percent. All the ratings of the drama’s 18 episodes averaged out to 11.0 percent, making the series one of only a few free-to-air dramas in the first half of 2018 with double-digit average viewership.

2. Miss Hammurabi surpassed 5 percent viewership. The series finally broke through the 5 percent mark, getting exactly 5.045 percent for its third episode. It went down a little bit though for the next episode, to 4.9 percent, but that is still very close to 5 percent, so there’s no reason for JTBC not to celebrate.

3. Sketch maintains good ratings of 3 percent. The drama recorded 2.982 percent nationwide rating for its third episode but it increased to 3.196 the following day. So far Sketch has an average rating of 3.279 percent, coming in third in the weekly ranking of cable dramas.

4. Come and Hug Me renews highest rating anew. Three out of the drama’s four episodes last week recorded ratings above 5 percent, with one becoming the peak rating of the series so far, at 5.9 percent. The series has nearly doubled its premiere rating of 3.1 percent, a sign that it keeps getting improvement as far as TV viewership is concerned. In other words, more and more people are watching the drama!

4. About Time maintains ratings below 2 %. This is a bad news for the drama which started off its run with 1.8 percent nationwide viewership. The second episode surpassed 2 percent but the following two episodes failed to maintain the record. Below-2 percent viewership is not so alarming for a cable show, but with the other cable dramas getting decent figures over 5 %, surely About Time has a lot more to gain.


Me? Just an ordinary lad with an extraordinary (says this something called 'stereotype') habit of watching Korean dramas. It started with action-filled City Hunter and the rest, as they say, is history.
