Goryeo-Khitan War, Episode 8 aired on KBS2 last night to slightly lower ratings than its previous episode.

According to Nielsen Korea, Goryeo-Khitan War (aka Korea-Khitan War) earned 7.9 percent of the audience share, which is a small drop from Episode 7’s all-time high of 8.4 percent.

In Seoul, the historical drama’s ratings also dropped slightly for Episode 8, with Nielsen reporting a 7.1 percent audience share compared to its previous episode’s 7.8 percent.

Both ratings still placed the drama in 4th place on Korean TV as the most-watched TV show for all of Sunday.

Goryeo-Khitan War‘s international ratings and where to watch the historical K-drama

Unfortunately, the Korean drama is still difficult to find on legal streaming platforms for a large part of the world, although Viki is streaming it in some very select regions.

Users of that platform are currently rating the K-drama a very high 9.5 out of 10 stars.

On My Drama List, where 1,510 users are currently reporting watching the historical drama, the drama is also being rated a solid 8.2 out of 10.

A very small number of viewers (36) are also rating Goryeo-Khitan War an 8.2 out of 10 on IMDB.

You might be lucky finding the KBS2 drama on Netflix, as that streaming platform is also airing it for very select Asian viewers, but not for anyone else it seems.

Kocowa is also streaming it in the United States.

Goryeo-Khitan War stars Kim Dong Jun, Choi Soo Jong, and Ji Seung Hyun, and airs on KBS2 every Saturday and Sunday at 21:25 (KST).
