International viewers still love The Story of Park’s Marriage Contract
International audiences still seem to be tuning into the drama in droves, however, if the ratings being given to it on various sites are anything to go by.
On My Drama List, the Korean drama is still being rated a very high 8.6 out of 10, while Viki viewers who are also watching the drama on that site have not dropped its rating from a 9.8 out of 10 since it began airing on November 24th.
