The new ENA comedy crime drama Crash is continuing to climb the ratings, with Tuesday night’s episode hitting a new milestone as it jumped over the 4.0 percent ratings mark for the first time to almost double the audience of its first episode.

Data via Nielsen Korea shows the Korean drama earning 4.08 percent of last night’s cable viewership, which was an increase from Episode 3’s viewership of 3.80 percent.

The drama’s Seoul audience also saw a tiny increase, with Crash, Episode 4’s audience share rising from Monday night’s 4.08 percent to Tuesday night’s 4.19 percent.

Meanwhile, if you ignore the crazy low 7.9 out of 10 ratings from users on My Drama List (the site has a cadre of immature downraters who “hate vote” any drama that doesn’t fit the stereotypical rom-com featuring an idol, so ratings there aren’t particularly trustworthy), the comments after Crash, Episode 4 aired are overwhelmingly positive.

They range from:

This is really entertaining! Really like the dynamic between Min So Hee (played by Kwak Sun Young) & Cha Yeon Ho (Lee Min Ki).

to a very relaxed:

I love easy going low key shows like this, Reminds me of Han River Police with a slightly bigger budget. Easy watch in between more serious dramas. Enjoying it for what it is.

(Both are correct, by the way, as the K-drama is an easy, fun watch and with superb chemistry between all the main leads and not just Min So Hee and Cha Yeon Ho).

The next episode of Crash, which stars Lee Min Ki, Kwak Sun Young, Heo Sung Tae, Lee Ho Chul, and Choi Moon Hee, will air on ENA on Monday, May 27th at 22:00 (KST).

Disney Plus/Hulu is airing the Korean comedy action crime drama for its international subscribers in some regions.
