My Sweet Mobster, Episode 8 aired on Thursday night in South Korea to the rom-com’s highest ratings yet.

That new all-time high meant the eighth episode of My Sweet Mobster grabbed 2.75 percent of the audience share, which is a small increase from Episode 7’s already solid viewership of 2.48 percent.

Viewers in Seoul also awarded the JTBC drama its largest audience so far last night, with 2.80 percent of the viewership — up from Wednesday night’s 2.44 percent.

As you might expect from how popular the drama is becoming, it is also still earning a very high rating of 9.7 out of 10 from the almost 4,000 people that have voted so far on Viki.

Viewers’ comments on both Viki and My Drama List are also overwhelmingly positive, with many people pointing out how fabulous the chemistry is between the two main leads and how cute their interactions. (Agreed!)

One such comment on My Drama List sums it up perfectly:

I’m really craving more content from this couple. Their moments, apart from the drama, are so rare, and even the BTS clips are getting shorter. It’s frustrating.

By the way, I’m not trying to ship them, but if they ended up together in real life, they would be perfect for each other. They have an amazing chemistry and a beautiful vibe when they’re together. Just saying, you know? Haha

The Uhm Tae Goo, Han Sun Hwa and Kwon Yul-led K-drama will head into its second half next Wednesday (July 10th).

You can watch every episode in the K-drama’s first half now on Viki.
