Tell Me That You Love Me ratings rose both nationwide and in Seoul

The utterly wonderful romance drama Tell Me That You Love Me, Episode 2 aired last night to an expected-from-me ratings rise.

According to numbers from Nielsen Korea, the Tell Me That You Love Me, Episode 2 ratings rise nationwide was from its first episode’s 1.5 percent to last night’s 1.8 percent.

The K-drama’s ratings in Seoul were even higher, rising from Episode 1’s rating of 1.81 percent to Tuesday night’s 2.03 percent.

Both numbers placed the romance drama in 3rd place in its time slot.

Ratings for Tell Me That You Love Me likely to rise if Internet buzz is correct

With 14 more episodes to air of this so-far superb Korean drama, it is also highly likely its ratings will continue to rise.

Especially considering from its first episode airing on Monday night, Tell Me That You Love Me has seen overwhelmingly positive responses on social media and on online forums — both in South Korean (according to a Korean source) and internationally.

On My Drama List, where international K-drama fans post their own ratings of Asian dramas, Tell Me That You Love Me is currently rated an 8.5 out of 10 from an average of almost 4,000 users.

Considering anything over about an 8.3 out of 10 is a high rating from users of that site, that rating bodes well for its continued improvement.

Meanwhile, IMDB only currently has nine people rating that drama, but it is already at a 9.3 out of 10 stars, and with 6 out of the 9 rating it a 10 out of 10.

In other words, if you are enjoying Tell Me That You Love Me as much as them (and me) head over to IMDB and rate it high.

Tell Me That You Love Me stars Jung Woo Sung and Shin Hyun Been.

The K-drama airs every Monday and Tuesday evening in South Korea on both Genie TV and ENA, with Disney + streaming it in a few regions.

Its next episode will air on Monday, December 4th at 21:00 (KST) on ENA.

Meanwhile, watch the K-drama’s official trailer below — sorry, but the only one that is currently legally available on YouTube is the version from Disney/Hotstar Thailand, hence the Thai subtitles.
