International viewers of Not Others

After Not Others, Episode 5 aired, the drama is still being rated 8.2 out of 10 on My Drama List by international viwers, and with comments overwhelmingly positive.

Comments range from:

LOVING this up to Episode 5. Nothing silly everybody is an adult; interesting life situations. Great smaller characters. More shows should be like this.

with another commenter, who has just finished Episode 4 saying:

This is very fresh and unpredictable (I’m at Episode 4). Sooyoung and the mother are so good in their roles. Am glad I started watching this.

The next episode of Not Others will air later on tonight on ENA, with Viki streaming the drama for international viewers soon after.

Chances are that episode will see increasing ratings as well.
