Behind Your Touch, Ep 12 earns HIGHEST EVER RATINGS with just 4 episodes to air

The JTBC drama Behind Your Touch, Episode 12 earned its highest ever rating last night in South Korea, with the latest episode of the comedy drama grabbing 8.68 percent of the audience share nationwide.

That is an increase from its previous episode’s 7.95 percent.

Numbers from Nielsen Korea also show Behind Your Touch, Episode 12 garnered 9.35 percent in Seoul, which is an increase from Episode 11’s rating of 8.42 percent.

Considering the drama started out on August 12th with its first episode earning just 5,27 percent (nationwide) and 5.61 percent (Seoul) ratings, Behind Your Touch‘s current audience share is excellent.

International audiences views of Behind Your Touch

While audience ratings on sites like My Drama List (8.1 out of 10) and on IMDB (7.2 out of 10) are now mixed, the drama is getting mainly positive comments with the odd person saying they are disappointed with the direction the drama has taken.

Several are also annoyed about the current lack of romance between the two leads.

Especially with only four episodes of the drama to go.

Comments on My Drama List, for instance range from:

I normally don’t mind the female lead’s choices but her refusing to touch her grandfather when the male lead brought it up initially made me the angriest I have ever been in a while.

Her grandpa is old and obviously not that strong to murder 2 young women and a young man…yet alone the assembly man…even though he was drunk. She is so stupid in her decision making that she too should be charged as an accomplice because of stalling

to

It’s still good on the thriller-comedy side but I expected the genres to be balanced out, and with like zero romance I feel like I got scammed… agree that the other relationships were fun to watch but still wanted more from the main couple… overall I’m just disappointed how the series turned out, I really enjoyed it in the beginning.

With just four episodes to air before the drama ends, hopefully, things will change for the better.

The next episode of Behind Your Touch will air on September 23rd on JTBC at 22:30 (KST), with Netflix streaming the drama for international viewers.
