SBS “Iljimae” continued its steady climb with the 20% barrier in sight last night.
According to TNS Media Korea, “Iljimae” got 19.0% last night and was higher than its previous episode by 1.4 percentile, with the 20% barrier in sight. Not just that, since it’s opening episode, the ratings has been steadily rising leaving the other competing dramas in the same timeslot in its wake.
MBC “Spotlight” also saw a small increase in its ratings by 0.7%, obtaining 12.9% last night. But the increase was insignificant considering that it’s likely to play second fiddle to “Iljimae” now and highly unlikely to surpass it in future.
On the same day, KBS broadcast the first episode of its new drama, “Woman of the Sun” but it only got 6.8%. Compared to its predecessor drama, “Three Dads and One Mum” which had 9.1% in its final episode, it’s not really an ideal rating by any means with plenty of room for improvement.
