“Still 17” is still in the first place and reached its best ever ratings on the final episode with 11%. The drama was surely popular with ratings at two digits.
“Lovely Horribly” decreased significantly in the ratings. The ratings were very similar to “Risky Romance”. Its second place among the main channels’ dramas was in danger.
“Risky Romance” finished the drama with similar ratings from last week, the drama from the beginning to the end did not show much change.
As we mentioned earlier, “Ping Pong Ball” is airing at 11 pm and “100 Days My Prince” at 9:30 pm while the main channels’ drama air at 10 pm. Their airing time is different. If we consider that the cable dramas air at the same time as the main channels’ ones, “100 Days My Prince” should be second and “Ping Pong Ball” last in terms of ratings.
“Ping Pong Ball” had only two episodes and had quite low ratings, on the second day it even dropped.
“100 Days My Prince” continues with impressive ratings. The drama is already at 7.3%. It increased significantly from last week amazing high starts. The drama is very much popular.
