The ratings for the new tvN drama Delightfully Deceitful have been up and down like a yo-yo since the drama premiered on May 29th.

It should be no surprise to anyone then that the ratings for Delightfully Deceitful, Episode 10 were back down last night after its previous episode was very close to an all-time ratings high.

Those ratings for Delightfully Deceitful, Episode 10 were 3.66 percent of the audience share nationwide, which was a drop from its previous episode’s 4.11 percent.

Those ratings, however, still placed the drama in first place on cable TV for the day, and are still decent ratings for a cable TV show.

Ratings for Delightfully Deceitful, Episode 10 in Seoul

Ratings for the drama in Seoul were a slightly lower 3.40 percent, which was a big drop from its previous episode’s 4.93 percent.

That being said, this is pretty normal for Delightfully Deceitful, whose episodes have been rated as high as a 4.55 percent nationwide and 5.22 percent in Seoul, and as low as 3.29 and 3.16 percent.

3.4 percent is also an average rating for a K-drama on cable TV, which means Delightfully Deceitful is still performing quite well at Episode 10.

Meanwhile, international audiences are rating the revenge drama 7.7 out of 10 on My Drama List, with several people commenting that the writing is sometimes convoluted and messy but that they are still enjoying Delightfully Deceitful primarily due to the performances of the main leads.

Delightfully Deceitful stars Kim Dong Wook and Chun Woo Hee, and airs on tvN in South Korea every Monday and Tuesday at 20:50 (KST).
