Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Ep 8 ratings RISE and now CLOSE to its highest ever ratings

Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Episode 8 ratings back up as Sunday audience increases

The Korean fantasy drama Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Episode 8 aired on tvN in South Korea last night and, as I predicted yesterday, with its ratings rising back up to close to the drama’s highest ever ratings.

According to the numbers from Nielsen Korea, the ratings for Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938, Episode 8 were a 6.73 percent of the audience share nationwide, with a higher 7.98 percent in Seoul.

That means the episode was only .39 percent away from the drama’s highest rating (for Episode 2) nationwide and, in Seoul, even closer with just a .32 percent reduction in ratings.

Last night’s ratings for Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938 also placed the supernatural fantasy drama in first place in its time slot.

In both regions of the country.

Viewership for each episode of Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938 has also been consistently higher throughout than for the drama’s first season, so the folks at tvN should be pleased.

With only four more episodes of the drama to air then, we can probably except the Lee Dong Wook-led drama to continue its ratings rise with, hopefully, a new highest ever rating still to be achieved.
