Korean fantasy period drama Love Song for Illusion, Episode 4 aired on KBS2 last night to steady ratings after seeing a big drop from its first episode with the ratings for Episode 2.

According to Nielsen Korea, the nationwide rating for last night’s episode was 2.4 percent, which was a slight increase from its previous all-time low of 2.3 percent for Episode 3.

It also seems to show the K-drama’s core audience is sticking around. As they should as, so far, Love Song for Illusion is excellent.

Unfortunately, ratings for the Korean drama in Seoul are not available as the glitch on Nielsen Korea’s website that has been in existence since late December is still ongoing.

Love Song for Illusion‘s international ratings

Meanwhile, as has been the case since its first episode, international audiences are still extremely positive about the Korean historical romance drama.

On My Drama List, where users are notorious for rating dramas quite a bit lower than most other sites, Love Song for Illusion is still being rated an 8.2 out of 10 (an excellent score for that site).

IMDB users, however, are rating the K-drama much higher giving it a 9.0 out of 10 so far.

Finally, on Viki where the Korean drama is being streamed for international audiences, its subscribers are currently giving it a very high 9.5 out of 10.

Love Song for Illusion stars Park Ji Hoon, Hong Ye Ji, Hwang Hee, and Ji Woo, and airs on KBS2 in South Korea every Monday and Tuesday at 22:10 (KST), with Viki streaming it for subscribers in many of their international regions.
