The SBS drama Connection, Episode 10 aired in South Korea last night to a huge ratings jump and, of course, to another new all-time high.

That jump also gave Connection its first double-digit rating since it premiered on May 24th.

Those ratings via Nielsen Korea were 11.1 percent nationwide, which is a full 2.0 percent ratings jump from its previous episode’s already high audience share (9.10 percent).

Audiences in Seoul, meanwhile, gave the Korean crime drama an even bigger increase in its viewership, going from Friday night’s 8.9 percent to Saturday night’s 11.4 percent.

Both ratings placed the Ji Sung-led drama in 2nd place among the most-watched TV shows in South Korea on Saturday.

With only four more episodes to air, that also likely means Connection will earn even higher ratings from here.

Connection stars the aforementioned Ji Sung, alongside other main cast members Jeon Mi Do, Kwon Yul, and Kim Kyung Nam.

It is scheduled to air on SBS from May 24th to July 6th, with KOCOWA streaming the K-drama for its subscribers in North America, Europe and Oceania.
