100-minute My Dearest, Episode 21 ended the K-drama #1 in its time slot
On Saturday, the most-competitive day for dramas in Korea, My Dearest Episode 21 earned its highest ratings ever, ending the superb historical drama on a massive high note.
Not only its highest ratings for Part 2 of the K-drama, I might point out, but also its highest rating for all 21 episodes that have aired since the drama premiered on August 4th with Episode 1.
The numbers via Nielsen Korea show My Dearest, Episode 21 earned 12.9 percent of the audience share nationwide in South Korea.
That’s an increase from the MBC drama’s second-highest ever rating of 12.4 percent for Episode 20.
In Seoul, the historical drama earned a similar percentage of the audience grabbing a 12.7 percent rating, which is an increase from its previous episode’s already high 12.5 percent.
Surprisingly though, while My Dearest, Episode 21 ended its series run with a huge rating, it was not the #1 most-watched show on TV in South Korea on Saturday.
That top spot went to the Uee-led K-drama Live Your Own Life, which pipped My Dearest to the post with a 14.5 percent rating nationwide.
My Dearest was the #1 most-watched show in its time slot, however. By a mile.
