Defendant hasn’t managed to beat the record it already set for itself, but it stuck firmly to that very impressive 22.2% this week, which should still count as a win. That meant that Hwarang was left to finish its run at an okay 7.9%, while Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People saw a small jump... More »

It’s hard to say if Introverted Boss’s restructuring is paying off when it dropped a hair in its even episode, but for the show’s sake, it would be nice if it saw some improvement for all its efforts.

We got some new premieres this week, but it’s only the beginning of the glut of dramas that’ll soon be upon us. Among them was the quirky Introverted Boss over on tvN, which pulled in relatively low numbers for the network—but it also airs an hour later than its competition, and maybe that’s one hour...

We’re in the last lull before the next cycle of dramas starts, and all the awards ceremony pre-emptions created some interesting ratings results as two of the Wednesday-Thursday shows finished their runs by airing their final episodes on Wednesday.

There’s no end to how high Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim can go, it seems, with the show reaching an all-time series high of 25.1% this week. Despite the stiff competition, Hwarang carved out a solid 8.0% for itself, and continues to do fairly well week to week. Poor Night Light still remains in last place... More »

KBS’s new sageuk Hwarang premiered in the slot left behind by The Man Living in Our House, and is already doing much better than its predecessor at 7.2%. It’s by no means a runaway hit, but being second to juggernaut Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim is no small feat, especially for a show we were all... More »

It’s impossible not to keep mentioning Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim when it’s soaring above its competitors in terms of ratings. This week it reached an all-time high of 23.8%, so there seems to be no stopping this juggernaut. I would say that this has been a good year for medical dramas overall, but I do... More »
