The Korean Friday-Saturday drama Wonderful World, Episode 12 ratings experienced a huge drop on Saturday night ahead of the show’s final two episodes next week.

A drop that was quite surprising as, up until now, the Korean drama has been performing very well.

That fall in the ratings meant Wonderful World, Episode 12 earned 6.8 percent of the nationwide audience share last night.

That is massively down from its previous episode’s all-time high of 11.14 percent, as well as a big drop from last Saturday’s episode rating of 9.2 percent.

Viewers in Seoul also behaved similarly, with Wonderful World, Episode 12 garnering just 6.3 percent and, again, an enormous drop from its previous episode’s 11.2 percent.

Having said that, though, ratings at the 6.0 percent level are still great ratings and, with the popular Korean revenge drama’s final two episodes airing/streaming next week, there is a very good change those ratings will rise again.

Break a leg, eh?

Wonderful World stars what has been the excellent main cast of Kim Nam Joo, Cha Eun Woo, Kim Kang Woo, and Im Se Mi.

The drama premiered on MBC on March 1st, and has continued to see rising ratings throughout most of its run.

Outside South Korea, Wonderful World is streaming via Disney + for its international subscribers.
