Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Episode 10 hit the airwaves in South Korea and via Amazon Prime Video worldwide last night with, as I predicted yesterday, a much higher rating than its Saturday evening show.

That rating, according to Nielsen Korea, was 6.62 percent nationwide, with a much higher 8.19 percent in Seoul.

Those ratings mean Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Episode 10 ratings increased by 1.64 percent nationwide and by 2.04 percent in Seoul over its previous episode.

Something that has been quite consistent throughout the fantasy drama’s run, with the tvN fantasy drama’s Saturday show earning sometimes substantially lower ratings than its Sunday episode.

As the drama only has two more episodes to air, which will premiere next Saturday and Sunday evenings, it is also likely that rating will remain at its current level and possibly increase even further for its final two shows.

Fingers crossed on my end, as Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938 has been one of this year’s K-drama gems throughout its entire run, and more people should see it.


International viewers of Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Episode 10

International viewers of Episode 10 also appear to have watched the latest episode in large numbers, and seem to be happy with the direction the drama is going, although there is some definite worry about the ulimate fate of a couple of the main characters due to that foreboding preview for Episode 11.

This being a Korean drama, though, we can pretty much expect “everything to go to hell in a handbasket” in the episode before the finale, only to suddenly be “fixed” when its finale hits.

Fingers crossed, eh?

Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Episode 10 is now streaming via Amazon Prime Video for international viewers.

Its final two episodes will premiere on tvN in South Korea next Saturday and Sunday evening at 21:20 (KST), with the episodes showing up on Amazon around the same time.
