On cable channels and at a different time, there are “Rich Man” (MBN) at 11:00 pm and “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” (tvN) at 9:30 pm. It was “Suits” last episodes this week.
Korean channels this week had many special programs related to the local elections, the FIFA World Cup and the North Korea-U.S. summit. Therefore some episodes were postponed to other days.
According to Nielsen Korea, on June 13th, “Suits” was first with 9.1% (15th episode), “Rich Man” had 1.2% for its 11th episode and “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” had 7% for its 3rd episode. “The Undateables” and “Come and Hug Me” did not air on that day.
According to Nielsen Korea, on June 14th, “Suits” was first with 10.7% (16th -last- episode), “Come and Hug Me” was second with 3.4 and 3.8% (15-16th episode) and “The Undateables” was third with 3.5 and 3.6% (13-14th episode). “Rich Man” had 1% for its 12th episode and “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” had 6.4% for its 4th episode.
As we mentioned earlier, “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” is airing at 9:30 pm and the main channels’ drama at 10 pm. These dramas’ episodes are of around 1 hour long. They, therefore, share 30 min of airing time. If we consider that “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” is airing at the same time as the main channels then it should be second in terms of ratings, right after “Suits”.
“Suits” continued to top all the Wednesday-Thursday dramas’ ratings and closed the drama with its highest ratings for the last episode. The drama showed constant growing viewership since its beginning. Next KBS Wednesday-Thursday drama will be “Your House Helper” to air on July 4th.
“What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” has very high ratings for a cable channel and received good opinions from Korea viewers. On July 13th, as MBC and SBS did not air their drama, tvN viewers are high with 7% and on the next day at 6.4%. It shows a growth from its first episode.
“The Undateables” shows a decreased of viewers as mentioned last week. It started with 5.3% and enthusiasm from the viewers but currently ended up last in the main channels’ dramas.
“Come and Hug Me” aired only one episode this week and last week. It is losing slowly the viewers they had gained. On the first episode, the drama had not much attention with 3.1% and finally got its highest ranking at 5.9% on its 12th episode. However last week episodes came down to 4.3 and 4.5% and for this week down to 3.4 and 3.8%.
