The Korean comedy period drama Knight Flower, Episode 3 experienced a big ratings increase when airing on MBC in South Korea tonight.

An even bigger ratings increase also occurred with audiences in Seoul, where the MBC drama jumped from Episode 2’s rating of 7.9 percent to tonight’s 11.0 percent — a substantial increase of 3.1 percent.

The Knight Flower cast and plot

Knight Flower stars Honey Lee (aka Lee Hanee), Lee Jong Won, Kim Sang Joong, and Lee Ki Woo.

The historical drama follows widow Jo Yeo Hwa, a woman who appears to have been appropriately mourning her late husband for more than 15 years but, in reality, lives a secret double life at night.

While away from her family home one night, she bumps into Park Soo Hee (played by Lee Jong Won), a military officer who is also a martial arts expert.

But, after meeting him “accidentally” several times more in places where she should not be, Yeo Hwa begins to wonder if their meetings are really accidental?

Or is it possible that Park Soo Hee knows all about her secret life?

The Korean drama airs every Friday and Saturday evening on MBC in South Korea, with Viki and KOCOWA streaming it for their international subscribers.

The next episode of Knight Flower will air/stream tomorrow night — January 20th, 2024.
