Its competitors SBS’s “Please Take Care of Us, Captain” and KBS’s “Wild Romance” lagged behind with 7.5% and 4.5% respectively.
During last night’s episode, “The Moon that Embraces the Sun” set another personal record by hitting another all-time high with 41.3% during real-time ratings. The episode started off with ratings over 30% and surpassed the 40% mark within 25 minutes into the story. Real-time ratings hit 41.3% during the scene where Heo Yeom (Song Jae Hee) handed Yeon Woo’s (Han Ga In) last letter before her “death” to King Lee Hwon (Kim Soo Hyun).
