We are currently covering the following:
Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) roared back with an impressive 10.4% share on Sunday, edging out Our Blues which is continuing to rise in ratings. With the May weekend being a worldwide holiday, it’s unsurprising to see all of these shows doing well – even if OCN’s A Superior Day continues to lag behind with 0.9% share.
Tomorrow’s ratings are continuing to fall while Shooting Stars, unsurprisingly, is also lagging behind too.
Crazy Love ended its run with 4.6% share, and that will be replaced by Bloody Heart in June.
The Killer’s Shopping List starts its run with a solid 3.6% share, although episode 2 did see a slight drop to 3.5%.
There are a good number of K-dramas releasing in May though so we’ll have to wait and see how that shapes up!
