The Korean legal drama Queen of Divorce, Episode 4 ratings are in and, as expected, they stayed solid compared to the K-drama’s previous episode.

Of course the third episode of Queen of Divorce hit an all-time ratings high for the JTBC drama on Wednesday night in South Korea, with 5.75 percent of the audience share.

But, as Queen of Divorce, Episode ratings show the K-drama grabbed 5.68 percent of the nationwide audience, ie: such a tiny drop it really isn’t one, it appears this superb K-drama’s audience isn’t going anywhere.

The same occurred in the K-drama’s Seoul ratings where, according to Nielsen Korea, the fourth episode of the Lee Ji Ah and Kang Ki Young-led drama earned 5.51 percent of the viewership, almost the same as its previous episode’s all-time high of 5.64 percent.

While veteran actress Lee Ji Ah is much loved in the K-drama community, and Kang Ki Young has amassed quite a following in the last few years after roles in Extraordinary Attorney Woo, What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim? and The Uncanny Counter, international viewers of Queen of Divorce are also enjoying the drama just for the drama’s sake.

Users of My Drama List, who tend to be extremely picky when it comes to what they like, are rating Queen of Divorce a solid 8.0 out of 10.

Most comments about the Korean drama’s script, the performances and the ensemble cast are also mostly positive.
