Drama viewership ratings for the week of Dec. 28, 2020-Jan. 3, 2021

Good riddance, 2020! It was nice knowin’ ya! I can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store for us, but I’m also enjoying our current batch of shows. Newcomer Secret Royal Inspector stayed pretty strong in its second week, bringing in 6.1 percent. Penthouse, however, in its second to last week, saw a slight dip in numbers. I’m sure its finale week will bring things back up.

While True Beauty got pre-empted, Fly Dragon returned after a three-week hiatus to 5.8 percent. Uncanny Counter returned as well, to a hefty 8.4 percent. This and Mr. Queen are absolutely killing it in the ratings game, it’s crazy. Now that they’re past the halfway mark, I’m wondering if they’ll keep rising or if they’ll eventually reach a stasis (hopefully the former).

I am so glad that 'The Uncanny Counter' and 'Mr. Queen' is doing so well. These two are the only show that I am watching right now and look forward to watch in the weekend. Mr. Queen is a hoot! I never knew that Shin Hye Seon is such a great actress! Her acting was so powerful when she confronted the king regarding her attack. That was amazing. She is definitely here to stay.

Well for Shin Hye Sun, her career breakthrough was My Golden Life (eaux at the ML), but she was as I heard astonishing there. Full on amazing/heartbreaking performance, playing a person indicted by society b/c of her class status, and her standing up for herself.

I'm so glad that someone whose actually talented/emotive as an actress is fully acknowledged for her talents. She's one to stay. Def. going to become a top tier actress in Korea in the future.

Agree wholeheartedly. She does not only portray varying personalities but different genders with full capacity and believability. I have seen very rare actresses with such talents even in other country's cinemas.

Since yesterday, I'm trying to write that I'm happy for Awaken's ratings that are pretty steady :)

Can I write now? Let’s see...

I like Shin Hye-sun. I really liked her in My Golden Life and she was gold there. I also liked her in FoS 1 (and thought that she was the killer πŸ˜…). She impressed me in all the projects I’ve seen her in. I watched Mr.Queen until episode 6 as my sister was also watching it. I agree that her performance is too-tier, but as the story is not really my cup of tea (at least at the moment) I stopped there. Hopefully the ratings increase though.

She was the best actor in 30 but 17 and in Angels Last Mission (which I could not finish). Definitely an actress that I try to follow.

Same. I like my historical serious and substantive, not slapstick.

But no fault of Shin Hye Sun.

Mr. Queen is sooo good!
It is supposed to have 20 episodes, so it hasn't passed the halfway mark yet.
Sunday 1/3 ratings had a tiny little dip from 1/2 but still 12.3%.

It looks like Choi Jin-hyuk's voice is gone now 😒

His inner thought/voice in the Queen's body is gone sadly... I knew eventually his voice wouldbe switched to Shin Hye-Sun's voice but still.
That was one of the best things of this drama... for me!
