K-Drama Viewer Ratings (2nd May – 8th May)

Welcome to another week of K-drama content! We are well and truly underway with May and as the warmer weather comes sweeping in, the weekend ratings war continues.

There are several new dramas starting this week too, including Woori The Virgin, XX+XY and Rose Mansion which will certainly help to bolster out a rather sparse mid-week roster of shows.

We are currently covering the following:

Green Mother’s Club
Again My Life
Our Blues
My Liberation Notes

Our Thoughts:

Again My Life hit a new record high on Friday with a solid 10.1%. Whether this is partly thanks to the star power of Lee Joon-Gi is left up for debate but that’s pretty good.

Our Blues is continuing to build on its anthology-style storyline, shrugging off My Liberation Notes, Tomorrow and Shooting Stars (more on that in a minute!) to continue winning the weekend war right now

Shooting Stars continues to shoot down the weekend leaderboard (sorry, terrible pun I know) with a 1.4% rating and it’s clear this show is not doing too well. Having said that, viewers who have stuck with this one tend to have a lot of positive things to say so it could be a sleeper hit.

So that pretty much rounds up our weekend of dramas! We’ll be jumping into both XX+XY and Woori The Virgin so expect recaps on those. As for Rose Mansion? Well, there’s no International streaming for that one so sadly, we won’t be covering it!
