The Korean mystery drama Longing for You, Episode 13 aired in South Korea last night to its highest ever ratings nationwide with just one episode left to air.

The latest Nielsen Korea figures show Longing for You, Episode 13 grabbed 3.59 percent of the audience, which is a substantial rise from its previous episode’s 2.97 percent.

In Seoul, the drama earned a similar 3.58 percent, which is also an increase from Episode 12’s rating of 2.90 percent.

Both ratings placed the ENA drama in 3rd place for the day.

Longing for You stars Na In Woo, Kim Ji Eun, Kwon Yul, Bae Jong Ok, Lee Kyu Han, and Jung Sang Hoon.

The drama is receiving low ratings on sites like IMDB and Viki, but that is due to an Arab troll campaign downrating the drama due to one scene where a character in the drama wears Arab atire.

In other words, ignore the ratings, and watch the drama for yourself as it really is quite good.

Meanwhile, the final episode of Longing for You will air tonight on ENA in South Korea at 21:00 (KST), and is likely to see an even higher share of the audience as the events occurring throughout the first 13 episodes are finally concluded.

Hopefully so, as a high rating for a final episode is always nice for the actors and crew to end on.

Viki will stream Episode 14 for international viewers soon after it airs in South Korea.
