On May 25, Nielsen Korea released the viewership ratings for shows that aired the day before.
For the night of May 24, KBS 2TV’s drama “Suits” earned a viewership rating of 9.6 percent nationwide, the highest of all the shows that aired in the same time slot. It was a slight decrease from “Suits’s” highest-ever viewership rating of 9.9 percent, recorded during one of last week’s episodes.
MBC’s “Come and Hug Me” took second place in its time slot with 4.6 and 5.4 percent, marking the first time the drama has surpassed 5 percent. It is notable progress since its premiere viewership ratings of 3.1 and 3.9 percent. Audiences remain intrigued by the tragic nature of the romance unfolding between Jin Ki Joo and Jang Ki Yong.
SBS’s “The Undateables” earned a viewership rating of 4.9 and 5 percent, a slight decrease from their premiere ratings of 5.3 and 5.2 percent. However, audiences responded positively to Hwang Jung Eum‘s willingness to lay her image on the line for her character, including appearing in many extreme and/or embarrassing scenes.
