Miraculous Brothers, Episode 3 ratings fall from previous episode’s highest rating

The new Korean fantasy drama Miraculous Brothers, Episode 3 aired last night in South Korea and saw its lowest ratings yet. Both nationwide and in Seoul.

That being said, with the drama only three episodes in, and 13 more episodes still left to air, those ratings could go anywhere going forward.

According to Nielsen Korea, Miraculous Brothers, Episode 3 earned 2.78 percent of the nationwide audience share.

That is down from its previous episode’s 3.00 percent, which was the drama’s highest rating out of the three episodes aired so far.

Interestingly, however, while its previous highest rating put the drama in 8th place on cable TV for the day, its lower rating for Miraculous Brothers, Episode 3 saw it rise to the 4th most watched show on cable on Wednesday.

In Seoul, Miraculous Brothers, Episode 3 earned 2.61 percent of the audience share, which was down from its previous episode’s 2.73 percent, and is part of a continuing drop the drama has seen since its first episode aired to its highest rating in the nation’s capital.

Again, though, with 13 more episodes to air, your guess is as good as mine where the drama’s ratings will end up.

Miraculous Brothers soon coming to Viki for international viewers

They explain the plot like this:

Since he was a young boy, Yook Dong Joo (Jung Woo) has dreamed of becoming a writer. He was even named after a famous poet, and has long hoped that the day will come when his own novels are available in libraries and bookstores. He has no shortage of natural talent for writing, and displayed plenty of promise in the field growing up.

But now, seven years after completing university, Yook Dong Joo is further away from reaching his dreams than ever. He is mired in debt and his mother is forever causing problems for him. He works in dead-end part-time jobs ruing what might have been…

But life takes an unusual twist for him on the day he meets Kang San (Bae Hyeon Seong), a strange young man who was involved in an accident. The accident robbed Kang San of his memory, but left him with the unexplained ability to read minds, and even feel the pain and hopelessness of other people.

The aspiring writer decides to take care of Kang San. But together, the duo strikes up a powerful bond – can they pool their abilities to become true “miraculous brothers?”
