With just three more episodes to air before the Korean medical drama Dr. Romantic 3 ends, the ratings for last night’s Dr. Romantic 3, Episode 13 are in and, as you might expect, they are excellent.

According to Nielsen Korea, Dr. Romantic 3, Episode 13 saw the highest ratings the drama has received since it began airing on April 28th.

Those ratings were 14.8 percent nationwide, with an even higher 15.1 percent of audience share in Seoul.

They also made Dr. Romantic 3, Episode 13 the most watched show in Korea on Friday night.

Considering the drama’s previous two seasons ended with the final episode earning its highest number of viewers in its entire run, the way the ratings currently look it is likely the drama’s third season will experience the same.

Of course, the return of Kang Dong Joo (played by Yoo Yeon Seok) has not hurt the drama’s ratings either.

When will Dr. Romantic 3 end?

With only tonight’s episode left to air, followed by the drama’s final two episodes next weekend, that means the Dr. Romantic 3 finale is due to air in South Korea next Saturday, June 17th on SBS TV at 22:00 (KST).

The season finale will also stream via Disney +, Kocowa and Viki in select regions soon after.

Dr. Romantic 3, Episode 13 is already streaming on the same platforms.

Meanwhile, just on the off chance you have not started watching all three seasons of Dr. Romantic yet, Viki is also airing the first two seasons.

Every episode of both seasons is available to watch free of charge on the platform, ie: without a paid Viki membership.

Dr. Romantic 3 stars Han Suk Kyu  Ahn Hyo Seop, Lee Sung Kyung and Kim Joo Hun.

The drama is one of the most successful SBS TV has ever aired.
