The ongoing South Korean horror drama Revenant continued to see solid audience numbers last night when Revenant, Episode 5 aired on SBS TV.

The drama has seen audience numbers in double digits since its second episode and, with last night’s ratings being released by Nielsen Korea, that trend does not seem to be changing any time soon.

Those numbers show Revenant, Episode 5 earned 10.8 percent of the TV audience last night, which is an increase of .80 percent over its previous episode, and only .02 percent away from its highest rated episode (Episode 2).

In Seoul, the viewer numbers were even better with Revenant, Episode 5 garnering its highest rating yet with a substantial increase over its previous episode.

That rating saw the drama grab 12.2 percent of the audience share in Seoul, a 1.4 percent increase over its previous episode, and a rating that placed the horror drama firmly in first place for the day.

International viewers also seem to be enjoying the drama, with users of My Drama List who are watching it rating it an 8.5 out of 10 — which is a high rating from users of that site.

Revenant stars Kim Tae Ri, Oh Jung Se and Hong Kyung.

It airs every Friday and Saturday at 22:00 (KST) on SBS TV, with Disney Plus streaming the drama internationally.

The next episode will air later on tonight in South Korea, with Disney Plus uploading it for international viewers around the same time.
