The Korean rom-com My Sweet Mobster, Episode 9 aired on JTBC in South Korea last night to steady ratings — both nationwide and in Seoul.

Nielsen Korea is reporting My Sweet Mobster, Episode 9 earned 2.62 percent of the audience share.

That is only .10 percent away from the all-time high rating it earned for its previous episode.

Audiences in Seoul also watched the JTBC drama in similar numbers, with its ninth episode grabbing 2.54 percent, which is a slight drop from its previous episode’s all-time high of 2.80 percent.

As the Uhm Tae Goo, Han Sun Hwa and Kwon Yul-led drama tends to perform even better on Thursdays than on Wednesdays, chances are the K-drama’s rating will be even higher tonight.

International viewers continue to rate My Sweet Mobster very high

International audiences are also still awarding the Korean drama high ratings, with the often-picky folks over at My Drama List giving it a very high (for them) 8.5 out of 10.

Meanwhile, at Viki, where My Sweet Mobster is streaming, more than 5,200 people rating the drama so far have awarded it an average rating of a very high 9.8 out of 10.

In other words, if you haven’t yet begun watching it, you may want to start.

Especially because, not only is it superbly acted and written, but it is one of the funniest Korean dramas of the year.
