The South Korean comedy drama Not Others, Episode 6 aired last night and, just like every episode since it premiered, saw continued increasing ratings — both nationwide and in Seoul.

According to Nielsen Korea, Not Others, Episode 6 earned 3.62 percent of the audience nationwide, which is an increase from the previous episode’s 2.88 percent and the drama’s highest rating yet.

In Seoul, the ratings were similarly superb with Nielsen showing the sixth episode of the drama earning 3.95 percent of the audience share — an increase from its previous episode’s 3.25 percent.

Considering the drama kicked off Episode 1 with just 1.26 percent and 1.25 percent ratings (nationwide and in Seoul), Not Others has seen a rapid rise in the number of people watching the drama in just three weeks.

With six more episodes still to air, and interest in the comedy drama not waning at all, this trend is very likely to continue.

Especially as each new episode seems to be funnier and more well-written and acted than the last.

International viewers of Not Others

International viewers of the drama via My Drama List also still seem to be enjoying Not Others, with the drama currently rated an 8.2 out of 10 on the platform (quite a high rating for users of the website).

Viewers are complimenting the performances of both Choi Soo Young and Jeon Hye Jin, although that doesn’t always mean they like the characters they play.

Episode 7 of Not Others will air on Genie TV and ENA in South Korea on August 7th at 22:00 (KST), and every Monday and Tuesday after that until August 22nd.

Viki will stream the episode for international viewers soon after.

And, of course, if you have not yet started watching Not Others, as someone who didn’t expect much when I watched the first episode, I can now say with absolutely certainty it is one of the best dramas of the year so far.

And with some of the best performances.
