Gotta say I am thrilled the superb comedy crime drama Crash is continuing to do so well in the ratings, with last night’s episode — Crash, Episode 8 — earning the K-drama’s 7th consecutive rise in ratings since it premiered on May 13th.

Those ratings via Nielsen Korea last night were 5.87 percent nationwide, which is a .80 percent increase from the ratings for Episode 7.

In Seoul, Crash, Episode 8 performed even better, grabbing 6.16 percent of the audience share, which is a very nice increase from Episode 7’s viewership of 5.38 percent.

As you’d expect, both ratings made Crash the #1 most-watched show in its time slot, and the most-watched K-drama last night beating out both KBS2’s Dare to Love Me and tvN’s The Player 2: Master of Swindlers, (the latter also performed well in the rating).

Looks like even more Koreans are waking up to how good the ENA drama is, doesn’t it?

The very entertaining and incredibly well-written Crash stars Lee Min Ki, Kwak Sun Young, Heo Sung Tae, Lee Ho Chul, and Moon Hee.

Its next episode will hit on Monday, June 10th on ENA in South Korea at 22:00 (KST).

Outside the country, you will find it via Disney Plus and Hulu. Watch it. The drama is excellent.

I mean who would have thought a Korean drama about traffic cops could be this funny, this touching and this fun, right?
