Drama viewership ratings for the week of Oct. 21-27, 2019

Whoa, hold on now — how is spooky season almost over already? Dramaland slows down for no one, apparently, as there are still a few last minute October premieres to look forward to, followed by the November premieres. For now, let’s check in with what’s currently airing.

On Monday, we saw the return of actress Moon Geun-young in crime thriller Catch the Ghost. Moon’s last drama The Village: Achiara’s Secret, also a crime thriller, was four long years ago, so it’s great to see her again. Catch the Ghost brought in ratings of 4.1 and 3.7 percent, a very strong start for a cable show.

Most everyone in the mid-week and weekend slots, such as Extraordinary You and Vagabond, haven’t been drifting far from their usual numbers. Then, of course, there’s When the Camellia Blooms, inching closer and closer to the coveted 20 percent mark. You can do it, Dong-baek-ssi! Fighting!

Human Rights saw good jump this week. Seems like those who left it gave it another try this week. Very difficult to sit and watch this type of media. A big testament of your patience. I do acknowledge it in my heart and that's why always talk about its rating.

Wagebond and single mother ratings raise my distaste towards...

I'm still watching Running Investigators/Human Rights.

I read somewhere that it's run has been cut from 16 to 14 episodes, so maybe viewers have to come back for the last 4 episodes to see how the overarching story line plays out

Melt Me is the lowest rated TVN drama for 2019 and maybe even the lowest rated TVN drama since 2013.

It might surprise you. Did you get to see the end of episode 10? Whew! I needed to be frozen after that!

Since 2013 is incorrect, since there are dramas recorded below 1% like Entourage (2016) and Tomorrow With You (2017).

It is indeed lowest rated drama since tvN introduced Saturday-Sunday 9 p.m. timeslot in 2017.

Yay for Vagabond for maintaining the ratings. It's nearing the end. Only 4 episodes left. I predict there will be a Season 2, imo there is no way they could conclude everything in 4 episodes. If they do it will be so rushed.

The woes of liking supporting characters more than the leads....I want more airtime for KTW, Lily, bullet chicken gang. I assume Scarface will return, so I want more of him too. Hahahaha πŸ˜…

Hmmm...I would have said the show's problem is that it's trying to stretch 12 eps of plot into 16. There was a LOT of filler this week.

Oh this week was filler. They were totally dragging scenes with slowmos and flashbacks. I expected we will be done with the plane crash mid series and move on to other goverment conspiracy things...but here we are with 4 episodes left and still in 2012.

See I saw that first scene as a throwaway line that will be dealt with pretty quickly.

Wonderful life is the lowest KBS weekend drama, maybe because it’s not the typical family drama.
I remember their weekend masterpieces:
What happened to my family, five enough, father is strange

The avg ratings for WL is ~ 20%. The broadcast for Wonderful Life on 26/10 was postponed because of a baseball match that went overtime according to this article https://n.news.naver.com/entertain/article/009/0004451915.

And if I remember correctly, Golden Life was a soaring 45%! The plot was not as strong as Father Is Strange, but I still enjoyed it immensely. It was a warm drama despite the premise and hiccups midway through.

With that, I think I will be dropping Beautiful Love, Wonderful Life. I suffered through the first 2 weeks for nothing because the show never picked up and none of the characters are likeable. It's really a pity because all the actors seemed like they'd do really well in a light rom-com setting.

Vagabond is totally bonkers.
It's like The A-team had a baby with Cynthia Rothrock. I still love it though πŸ˜„

I think Tale of Nokdu deserves better rating for Nokdu performance alone.

I wish Secret Boutique's rating was better. It went down compared to last week. The preemptions are killing the flow.

I would love for My Country's rating to pick up too.

Can someone explain Extraordinary You's ratings to me? It's on a main station, right? Also, I heard it's number one on the internet. It's a great story with good performances. So why so low?
