The ratings for Lovely Runner, Episode 5 are out, with the ongoing Korean drama earning a slight jump in its audience share.

While that jump is only small, compared to the two other dramas airing in South Korea on Monday night — The Midnight Studio and Nothing Uncovered — whose ratings fell,  Lovely Runner did still grab the honor of being the #1 most-watched drama for the evening.

According to Nielsen Korea, the Lovely Runner, Episode 5 ratings were 3.43 percent, which is slightly up from its prior episode’s 3.37 percent.

Audiences in Seoul, however, dropped slightly — with last night’s episode of Lovely Runner falling from Episode 4’s 4.06 percent to last night’s 3.83 percent.

The next episode of the tvN fantasy romance drama airs tonight at 20:50 (KST), with Viki streaming it for international audiences, and with Viki viewers rating the show an incredibly high 9.8 out of 10. (Well deserved, I’d say!)

Let’s see how its ratings turn out then.

Lovely Runner stars main leads Byeon Woo Seok and Kim Hye Yoon, and is scheduled to run through May 28th.
