The Real Has Come, Episode 22 ratings increase slightly over previous episode

The latest ratings for the South Korean weekend melodrama The Real Has Come prove the show continues to pull in more viewers than any other show airing on Sundays in the East Asian country.

Those ratings show The Real Has Come, Episode 22 back up to earning 20.1 percent of the nationwide audience last night, after its previous episode dropped to 19 percent of audience share on Saturday.

In Seoul, The Real Has Come, Episode 22 did not grab quite as much of the audience share as nationwide, but it did still end up garnering 18.9 percent of the audience after dropping to 17.8 percent with Episode 21.

Both ratings — nationwide and in Seoul — place The Real Has Come, Episode 22 firmly in first place for the day.

Like almost every week since the Ahn Jae Hyun and Baek Jin Hee-led drama premiered on March 25th.

International viewers of The Real Has Come, Episode 22

Viewers outside South Korea currently watching The Real Has Come seem to still be in agreement that, even though the twists and turns and vile behavior of some of the characters in the drama can be annoying at times, the drama itself continues to pull them in.

In other words, even though the family drama still has 28 episodes to air before its finale, few people show signs of dropping it.

The drama’s rating on My Drama List is also still at 8.1 out of 10, which is a rating not only high for that site but one that is high for a weekend drama as they frequently tend to be rated lower by non-Korean audiences.

The conversation about the drama in the My Drama List comments is also fun to read, as most people seem to be incredibly invested in the drama and its main characters.

Even when they are irritated by them.

The ongoing KBS2 weekend drama The Real Has Come stars Ahn Jae Hyun, Baek Jin Hee, Kim Sa Kwon, Jung Eui Jae and Cha Joo Young.

If you missed The Real Has Come, Episode 22, it is currently streaming outside South Korea via Viki.

The drama’s next episode will air via KBS2 on Saturday June 10th at 19:55 (KST), then hit Viki soon after.

You can watch the preview trailer for it (in Korean) below.
