My Perfect Stranger Ep 16 finale earns HIGHEST rating ever – ends on HIGH note for cast and crew

The Korean drama My Perfect Stranger came to an end last night and, along with the conclusion to the KBS2 murder mystery, My Perfect Stranger, Episode 16 earned its highest rating ever.

Something I could have predicted yesterday, as the audience for the drama has been solid since its first episode aired on May 1st.

According to Nielsen Korea, My Perfect Stranger, Episode 16 garnered 5.7 percent of the audience share in its time slot nationwide, which was an increase of 1.3 percent above its previous episode.

In Seoul, My Perfect Stranger, Episode 16 performed even better with a 6.2 percent audience share, which is up 1.4 percent over episode 15.

Not surprising really as, when you have watched a time-traveling murder mystery for that long, you definitely want to know how it ends, right?


Solid average rating numbers for each episode of My Perfect Stranger

Those numbers also mean the entire season of My Perfect Stranger garnered an average of 4.4 percent per episode nationwide, and a slightly higher 4.7 percent in Seoul.

Numbers that are not as high as the drama previously airing in the same time slot (Oasis, with an average of 6.9/6.7 percent), but higher than the drama prior to that (Brain Works with a 4.0 percent average nationwide).

And also numbers that are good for a KBS2 drama.

In other words, solid numbers for My Perfect Stranger‘s first episode, and solid numbers for its average rating. Both cast and production crew should be happy with the result of their efforts.

My Perfect Stranger stars Kim Dong Wook and Jin Ki Joo.

The K-drama follows an anchorman and a book editor who are transported back to the year 1987, so he can solve a serial killer mystery and she can figure out just what went wrong with the relationship between her father and her mother.

The entire season of My Perfect Stranger is now streaming via Viki and Kocowa outside South Korea.
