New Series Ratings Watch: Come and Hug Me

MBC got another brand new drama today, giving the network with another chance to turn things around into its favor ratings-wise, following the dismal performance of its previous shows.  The series is a melodrama, and it has to compete against a thriller (crime procedural) and a romantic comedy.

Data from Nielsen Korea show that Suits and Greasy Melo remained in their positions, leaving COME AND HUG ME no choice but place no. 3. Come and Hug Me‘s first half obtained a nationwide rating of 3.1 percent. This figure is considered low in the industry and increased only to 3.9 % in the second half. It’s not the right time to draw a conclusion but surely the series is not off to a good start.

The numbers above, however, are close to Switch: Change The World’s 5.1 and 5.6 percent and might improve significantly once Switch gets itself out of the competition (it will end tonight). Meanwhile, Suits posted an 8.8 percent viewership, making a 0.9-percent improvement compared to the previous episode

Come and Hug Me airs every Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10 pm Korean Standard Time.


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.

    I, for one, do not particularly LOVE the dramas I watch; but this drama is bound to be one of my favourites. I’m currently on episode 12 and it has my favourite soundtrack I’ve ever heard out of all 70 dramas I have watched and the plot line is FANTASTIC!! Please give this drama a chance, the actors are absolutely brilliant too.

    MBC fighting!!
