Stealer: The Treasure Keeper, Ep 2 ratings show drama lost over 20% of audience from first episode

The tvN drama Stealer: The Treasure Keeper, Episode 2 ratings were released by Nielsen Korea earlier today, with the action comedy drama losing over 20 percent of its nationwide audience from its first episode.

Ratings for the drama show it grabbing 3.66 percent of the audience nationwide, and 4.39 percent in Seoul.

That is a drop of 1.01 percent from the drama’s first episode nationwide, but a smaller 0.57 percent in Seoul.

International audiences, however, seem to be sticking with the action comedy so far, with My Drama List viewers rating it an 8.1 out of 10 after the first two episodes.

Most comments on the site are also positive, and indicate viewers will be continuing to watch future episodes.

Stealer: The Treasure Keeper (aka스틸러: 일곱 개의 조선통보) stars Joo Won, Lee Joo Woo, Jo Han Chul, Kim Jae Won, and Choi Hwa Jung.

The 12-episode drama airs on tvN in South Korea every Wednesday and Thursday at 22:30 (KST) through May 18th, with streaming via  TVING.

Unfortunately, we are now finished with the first week of Stealer, and it has yet to be licensed for streaming on a western platform.

Hopefully, it won’t be long before that occurs as this one looks like a lot of fun.
