Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938 Ep. 3 ratings FALL to LOWEST yet but likely to RISE with next episode

K-drama Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Ep. 3 sees substantial fall in Seoul

Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Episode 3 ratings fell last night to the supernatural drama’s lowest yet both nationwide and in Seoul.

In Seoul, the drama saw a substantial drop from its previous episode, while nationwide the fall in ratings was substantial but not quite as severe.

In Seoul, Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Episode 3 ratings fell from its previous episode of 8.30 percent to last night’s 5.80 percent.

That is a full 2.5 percent drop in the percentage of viewers watching the Lee Dong Wook-led drama compared to its previous episode.

Nationwide, according to Nielsen Korea, that drop was a lower 1.89 percent, from Episode 2’s rating of 7.12 percent to last night’s 5.23 percent.

Of course, Saturday evenings are often the one night of the week where drama’s fall in the ratings due to it being the night many people spend with family and friends outside the house having fun.

Those same people than catch up on the episode via a streaming service the day after. In the case of Tale of the Nine-Tailed, via TVING.

That means, with the popularity and ratings of Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938 so far, it is very likely the drama’s ratings will rise again with its fourth episode airing later on today.
