With ENA’s The Kidnapping Day series finale airing on Wednesday night, SBS TV’s The Killing Vote is the only K-drama still airing on TV on Thursday nights in South Korea.

Last night that meant, for the first time since Episode 6, The Killing Vote, Episode 10 rose in the ratings for the day.

According to Nielsen Korea, The Killing Vote, Episode 10 garnered 3.2 percent of the audience share nationwide.

That was a nice increase from its previous episode’s 2.7 percent, which was its lowest rated episode yet, while also moving the drama from the 21st most-watched show last week to this week’s 17th most-watched.

In Seoul, The Killing Vote saw a similar although not quite as large rise in ratings among audiences in the nation’s capital.

In that instance, the crime drama earned 3.2 percent of the audience share, which was a slight increase from Episode 9’s all-time low rating of 3.0 percent.

The Killing Vote‘s penultimate episode will air next

While The Killing Vote continues to be a one-episode-per-week drama, something that has damaged its ratings since it first began to air on August 10th, that does also mean its penultimate episode will be airing next week.

Yep, finally, only two episodes of the 12-episode drama are left to air. (And doesn’t it seem like, as good as this drama has been, it has still been airing for your entire life?)

That will also likely mean, with the SBS TV drama still being the only drama airing on Thursday evenings next week, and with just two episodes to air, audiences that have watched it from the beginning are likely to help The Killing Vote, Episode 11 earn another ratings rise.

Meanwhile, for international audiences, The Killing Vote, Episode 10 is now streaming via Amazon Prime Video in some regions, where Episode 11 will also appear soon after it airs in Korea.
