Wedding Impossible Ep 2 slight ratings increase indicates happy audience so far?

One of the indicators of how well or poorly a Korean drama may do is often the second episode’s ratings.

Are they steady, did they increase, or did they drop — often massively?

That is why it is nice to see the Wedding Impossible, Episode 2 ratings out earlier today and notice a slight ratings increase both nationwide and in Seoul for the new tvN romantic comedy.

According to Nielsen Korea, those Wedding Impossible, Episode 2 ratings were 4.06 percent of the nationwide audience share last night.

Sure, that’s only a 0.06 percent ratings rise over its first episode‘s 4.00 percent, but that ratings rise is also a good indicator the K-drama may go on to perform very well during its 12-episode run.

After all, so far at least, the audience from its first episode seems to be quite happy with what they have watched so far, as they are not dropping off in droves.

Wedding Impossible, Episode 2 ratings in Seoul

Meanwhile in Seoul, Wedding Impossible also experienced a slight ratings rise for its Tuesday evening episode, earning a higher rating of 4.65 percent.

That is an increase of 0.21 percent higher than the Korean drama’s first episode garnered (4.44 percent) and, again, is an indicator the tvN drama is already earning a loyal audience.

Both ratings mean the drama was the #1 most-watched show in its time slot on cable/satellite.

Wedding Impossible stars Jeon Jong Seo, Moon Sang Min, Kim Do Wan and Bae Yoon Kyung.

It airs every Monday and Tuesday evenings on tvN in South Korea at 20:50 (KST).

Viki, where the K-drama is currently earning a 9.4 out of 10, is carrying it for its international subscribers.

(**On a personal note — I also watched the first two episodes of Wedding Impossible and, so far, it is a very entertaining watch with fun characters and great performances from its leads. I’ll be sticking with it for now at least. So… roll on next week’s episodes, eh?).
