Flex X Cop returns to only a minor ratings drop

South Korean drama Flex X Cop returned to SBS tonight after a one week absence due to last weekend’s Korean Lunar New Year holidays.

Considering the drama had two episodes meant to air last week postponed to this weekend, the Flex X Cop, Episode 5 ratings are in after the episode aired, and they are surprisingly solid.

According to Nielsen Korea, the Flex X Cop, Episode 5 ratings were a very steady 6.0 percent of the nationwide audience.

That is only a tiny .30 percent drop from its previous episode.

A very small drop indeed, considering audiences were forced to wait two weeks for Episode 5 to air.

Meanwhile, the Korean drama performed even better in Seoul, where it grabbed 6.9 percent of the audience.

Both ratings are also in line with what the action comedy has been earning since its first episode premiered on January 26th.

Flex X Cop‘s next episode

Flex X Cop stars Ahn Bo Hyun and Park Ji Hyun, who act alongside a stellar support cast that includes Kang Sang Jun, Kim Shin Bi, Kim Byung Chun, Lee Do Yeop, Jang Hyung Sung, Kwak Si Yang, Kwon Hae Hyo and Yoon Yoo Sun.

No more postponements of future Flex X Cop episodes are expected right now, which means the drama’s next episode will drop tomorrow night (Saturday) on SBS at 22:00 (KST), followed by streaming on Disney Plus for international viewers.
