With the latest episode of the K-drama My Dearest not airing last night due to a baseball game in Korea, the cast and crew of The Escape of the Seven must be thrilled with the results as the revenge drama saw its highest ratings in a long time.

According to Nielsen Korea, The Escape of the Seven, Episode 13 earned 7.2 percent of the audience share nationwide on Friday night, which is a big increase over its previous episode’s 5.6 percent.

In Seoul, where The Escape of the Seven, Episode 13 performed even better, the K-drama earned its highest ever rating with 7.4 percent of the audience, up from Episode 12’s rating of 5.8 percent.

Those ratings meant the SBS revenge drama shot to #1 in its time slot, and ended up in 4th place for the day nationwide and in 3rd place in Seoul.

With four more episodes of the Um Ki Joon-led drama still to air, that also helps set up The Escape of the Seven to finish on a high note. Yay!

The SBS crime thriller The Escape of the Seven stars Um Ki Joon, Hwang Jung Eum, Lee Joon, Lee Yu Bi, Shin Eun Kyung, Yoon Jong Hoon, Jo Yoon Hee, and Jo Jae Yoon.

The Korean drama’s next episode will air tonight on SBS at 22:00 (KST).

Yes, it will be back airing against My Dearest but, hopefully, last night’s high ratings will help it compete.

As for international viewers, Viki will also be streaming the latest episode around the same time it airs on SBS.
