Queen of Tears, Episode 3 ratings show K-drama well on way to being a big hit

Ever since Queen of Tears graced our screens on March 9th, it’s been as clear as day that this K-drama was destined for greatness!

Sure, the Korean drama kicked off with a modest 5.85 percent nationwide viewership in South Korea, but boy, did it stir up a storm on social media!

The buzz was palpable, both at home and abroad.

So, when Episode 2 rolled around and the ratings skyrocketed to 8.66 percent, nobody batted an eyelash.

And guess what? Last night’s Queen of Tears, Episode 3 ratings?

Yep, you guessed it – another big leap!

Queen of Tears, Episode 3 ratings jump even higher

In fact the latest stats from Nielsen Korea reveal that Episode 3 hit a whopping 9.59 percent nationwide – almost grazing the coveted double-digit mark!

And in Seoul? The Korean drama outdid itself there too, climbing from 9.82 percent to a staggering 11.12 percent!

We’re talking double digits, and a solid foundation for tonight’s Episode 4, which is probably poised to break even more records!

But wait, there’s more!

Queen of Tears hitting the feels with international viewers too

International viewers are singing their praises for Queen of Tears too, with IMDb users giving the Korean drama a hearty 8.4 out of 10, while even the tough critics over at My Drama List are dishing out a generous 8.6 out of 10.

And let’s not forget about Netflix – according to Flix Patrol, Queen of Tears reigned as the #1 most-watched show in 28 countries yesterday!

Talk about heading towards global domination, huh?

Starring Kim Soo Hyun and Kim Ji Won, the rollercoaster of emotions that is Queen of Tears airs every Saturday and Sunday evening on tvN in South Korea, with Netflix delivering the goods to viewers worldwide.

So, grab your popcorn and brace yourselves – as tonight, we’re in for another wild ride with Episode 4 of Queen of Tears!

And, if the K-drama’s massive social media presence is anything to go by, we’re likely to see another ratings jump too.
