Drama viewership ratings for the week of Oct. 14-20, 2019

Nothing too exciting to report this week, as our shows have settled into their timeslots, but still plenty to talk about. On Monday, fusion sageuk Tale of Nokdu was postponed due to a baseball game. No matter — the drama was able to maintain its decent viewership ratings when it returned on Tuesday. We also had the finale of The Great Show on Tuesday, which had a great landing of 3.2 percent.

In the latter half of the week, ratings for popular dramas When the Camellia Blooms and My Country: The New Age continued to inch upwards, while for most other dramas, they continued to inch downwards. Vagabond, The Lies Within, and Melting Me Softly, in particular, lost several viewers, with The Lies Within even joining Running Investigators in the Under 1 Percent Club. Oh well, better luck next week.

Human Rights - 0.4% off. The most real one among all airing. Result was expected. From experience its clear what audience want. This is also reflected in fortune of 2 other shows notwithstanding how much ridiculous both are.
As said few weeks ago - this type of stuff isn't suitable for a fictional show. More like its suitable but not where they are trying to sell the product. Loss is a Loss.

I agree about Human Rights. I finally gave it up. I think it's well executed but the material is so dreary and the data-gathering episodes are tiresome. Lee Yo-won's character is a negative -- she's a gadfly and a depressed one at that. No spark.

Vagabond ep 10 made me happy, KTW has more screentime and he was coolbeans. Hehehehe

Fighting VB! I'm not expecting a sudden increase in ratings, but I do hope it can maintain 10% until the end.

Don't know how big or well known is the cable channel they are airing it so maybe that's also a factor but the weekend that pased on the 20th the rating was of 2.1% so it did increase even if by little,guess it's always better

Tale of Nokdu is absolutely brilliant and deserves at least 10 percent in ratings. It's strange the massive online popularity of the drama doesn't reflect on its ratings. The netizens made ToN trend number 5 on Naver despite the heartbreaking incident of that day. Clearly the show has a huge fan base.

Sooo happy for My Country getting that 5%,hope it goes up up!!! Vagabond doing quite well as well and i'm happy for Seung Gi!!! Sad that ExtraOrdinary and Secret Boutique have such small ratings as both are amazing!!!Pegasus Market needs more love,that show is all the crazy in a good way!!!
No suprise for Melting Me softly,that show is quite bad and sad for the actors,while i watch it i always think that Ji Chang Wook burned with this script and didn't get what he expected

Kudos to Graceful Family. I read that between MBN and Dramax the ratings for the finale reached 10% which is an amazing accomplishment.

Ratings and our (Non-SK) enjoyment are commonly miss-matched.

ToN current ratings put it in "My Ajushi" / "Forest of Secretes" territory (if not above). For me, it is no where near the quality of those dramas.

Fans should take their joy in that it is above the curve, which means it has less chance of having the rug pulled out from under it in the run home. With luck fans will push it to a nice number for the final...and people wont be screaming about an ending that didn't make sense.

Some calls him Yi Bang Bang lol.

As he should be! Iā€™m a goner for his mad horse riding skills, his restrained yet cutting lines, his inner rage and heartbreak at being dissed by his father, his mocking smile, his way of creating chaos for his own benefit, and his mind of steel. *fans self*

I šŸ’“ Jang Hyuk, and he has a HUGE fan base, but I think it is Do Hwan who pulls in viewership. He has amazing talent at such a young age. Kudos also to the entire team for sustaining the interest of the viewers by focusing on complex human emotions and relationships amidst one of the often-used backdrop in Korean History.

Ooo hoping for some uptick in 'Extraordinary You'. It will be really cool if it crosses 4%. This type of school dramas arent that ratings friendly . This drama isnt perfect but love watching it especially Kim Hye Yoon. She is really talented and funny and cute. Hehe.

I'm really enjoying Extraordinary You though... It's crack-tastic and all the boys are so good-looking and hilarious! It should get higher ratings and I felt the same way when You Are Beautiful was airing... I also really want to try watching Graceful Family after I finish My Contracted Husband Mr. Oh. I'm also casually watching When the Camellia Blooms but I stick around mostly for the Ongsan people and Pil Gu....
