The Real Has Come Ep 18 MOST WATCHED show on Sunday with continued RISING ratings

The Real Has Come, Episode 18 audience back on rise as drama heads towards its mid-point

The Real Has Come, Episode 18 aired on Sunday night in South Korea and, as you might expect if you have been following the ratings for this Saturday/Sunday drama recently, the family drama’s ratings continue to rise.

Numbers from Nielsen Korea show The Real Has Come, Episode 18 earned 19.8 percent of the audience in its time slot nationwide, with a slightly lower 18.4 percent in Seoul.

Both ratings, just like last week, placed the drama in the top spot as the #1 most-watched show of any kind in South Korea on Sunday.

The The Real Has Come, Episode 18 ratings were also 2.4 percent higher than the family drama’s previous episode nationwide, and 1.8 percent higher in Seoul.

With the KBS2 drama only seven episodes away from its mid-point, that rise will probably continue as it does not show any sign of shedding much of its audience so far.

When is the next episode of The Real Has Come premiering?

The Real Has Come, aka 진짜가 나타났다! in Korean, stars Ahn Jae-hyun, Baek Jin Hee, Kim Sa Kwon, Jung Eui Jae and Cha Joo Young.

The drama premiered on March 25th, 2023 with its 50 episodes currently scheduled to run through September 10th.

The next episode of The Real Has Come, Episode 19, will air in South Korea on Saturday, May 27th on KBS2 at at 19:55 (KST).

For international viewers outside Korea, both Viki and Amazon Prime Video via Kocowa are streaming each new episode soon after the drama airs in South Korea.

Now refresh your memory of how good this family drama is with the cute scene of Ahn Jae Hyun suffering from morning sickness despite not being the father of Baek Jin Hee’s baby.
