Delightfully Deceitful Ep 13 hits ratings LOW but still in #1 spot

Delightfully Deceitful, Episode 13 aired last night in South Korea and hit the series’ lowest rating yet nationwide.

Interestingly though, it still managed to be in the #1 spot on cable TV with other shows grabbing even lower shares of the audience.

According to Nielsen Korea, Delightfully Deceitful, Episode 13 earned just 2.97 percent of the audience, which is a drop from its previous episode’s 3.42 percent.

With Seoul viewers, however, the drama performed better garnering 3.6 percent of the audience share, which is slightly up from the 3.47 percent share of Episode 12.

It will be interesting to see then how the drama performs tonight with its fourteenth episode. Will the ratings continue to fall nationwide, and will its ratings rise again in Seoul?

With just three more episodes to air of the crime/revenge drama, it would be nice if it ends up with its highest ratings for the series going forward, wouldn’t it?

Delightfully Deceitful stars Kim Dong Wook and Chun Woo Hee.

The drama airs every Monday and Tuesday evening on tvN in South Korea at 20:50 (KST), with TVING and U-Next in Japan also streaming each new episode soon after it airs in Korea.

Episode 14 will air later on tonight. You can check the full preview (in Korean) down below.

Delightfully Deceitful‘s final episode will premiere on Tuesday, July 18th.
