The ongoing South Korean drama Queen of Divorce, Episode 5 ratings are out and, while the K-drama has performed well for its past three episodes, last night it saw a significant drop.

According to Nielsen Korea, Queen of Divorce, Episode 5 ratings fell from the previous episode‘s 5.68 percent to last night’s much lower 4.64 percent. 

That is more than a 1 percent drop but, even with that fall, the Korean drama still moved from 4th place to 2nd place in the cable TV rankings for Wednesday.

In Seoul, the Lee Ji Ah-led drama earned 4.38 percent of the viewership, which is down from Episode 4’s 5.51 percent.

Again though, Queen of Divorce moved from last week’s 4th place to this week’s #1 spot in the nation’s capital.

Meanwhile, the K-drama is being rated a strong 8.2 out of 10 via IMDB.

Queen of Divorce stars Lee Ji Ah and Kang Ki Young, and airs on JTBC every Wednesday and Thursday evening at 20:50 (KST).

The Korean drama is also streaming via Viki for that platform’s international subscribers, where it is currently being rated an extremely high 9.5 out of 10 stars by its viewers.

Many are also complimenting both Lee Ji Ah and Kang Ki Young’s performances, with several also pointing out how perfect Kang Ki Young is in the role considering his superb comedic timing, and how pleased they are he has been given a chance to play the male lead.

The legal drama’s next episode will air/stream later on tonight.
