The best Korean drama of 2023 (in my opinion, and I am really damned picky), Tell Me That You Love Me, Episode 4 earned its highest rating yet in South Korea last night.
According to the latest figures from Nielsen Korea, Tell Me That You Love Me, Episode 4 earned 1.98 percent of the audience share nationwide, which is a nice increase from its previous episode’s 1.67 percent.
In Seoul, the Korean romantic drama earned an even higher rating, grabbing 2.12 percent of the audience, which is an increase from Episode 3’s 1.72 percent.
Both ratings gave the Genie TV/ENA drama its highest ever rating yet.
International ratings for Tell Me That You Love Me
The only ones seeming to downrate the Korean drama are the same people who are whining about the ending of the Japanese version of the drama, which came out almost 30 years ago and likely has a different ending. (yep, people are idiots. Nothing you can do about that).
Meanwhile, over on IMDB, Tell Me That You Love Me is being rated an even higher 9.2 out of 10.
The drama itself stars Jung Woo Sung and Shin Hyun Been, as the deaf artist and would-be actress who start to fall in love.
The performance from Jung Woo Sung is nothing less than perfect, as he portrays a man who does not speak yet, in four episodes of no dialogue except for the voiceover we occasionally hear, we all now feel like we know his soul inside and out.
The next episode of Tell Me That You Love Me will air on Monday, December 11th, 2023 on Genie TV and ENA in South Korea, with Disney + airing it in very very select regions.
You can watch the official trailer for the drama below — unfortunately, it is only currently available from Disney in Indonesian or Thai, as they continue to do a dismal job distributing the Korean drama worldwide.
