While the Genie TV romance drama Tell Me That You Love Me, Episode 16 rating did not manage to end the series on an all-time high, it did see a rise in that rating last night.

That rise saw Episode 16 increase from its previous episode’s 1.60 percent audience share nationwide, to last night’s 1.76 percent.

A small increase, but not bad for a drama airing on two of the lesser watched pay channels in South Korea (Genie TV and ENA), and also not bad for a K-drama that was able to keep its ratings consistently solid throughout its 16-episode run.

All told, last night’s rating helped give Tell Me That You Love Me a nationwide average rating of 1.1.73 percent per episode.

In Seoul, Tell Me That You Love Me, Episode 16 fared even better as it garnered 2.09 percent of the audience, which was an increase from its previous episode’s 1.88 percent rating.

International ratings for Tell Me That You Love Me

As for international ratings, Tell Me That You Love Me continued to perform well right through Episode 16.

The K-drama ended with a user ranked 8.6 out of 10 on My Drama List, and IMDB users rating it an even higher 8.9 out of 10.

Some users were not particularly happy with the drama’s ending, as the series’ last couple of episodes were poorly-written and some of the issues seen throughout the drama were still not dealt with by its ending.

Shin Hyun Been’s character also became quite unlikeable due to her obsession with how the relationship affected her rather than how it affected both of them.

But others did feel somewhat satisfied with how it turned out.

The Korean drama itself stars Jung Woo Sung and Shin Hyun Been.

You can watch all 16 episodes of Tell Me That You Love Me on Disney Plus in some regions as, unfortunately, it was Disney that bought the licensing rights and only in a few specific regions.

Considering it is one of the best Korean dramas of 2023 overall, it deserved to be on a platform like Netflix, as well as legally available in many more countries.
