MBC‘s weekend drama “The Legendary Witch” is looking to break the 30 percent mark in viewership ratings.
According to the ratings research company Nielsen Korea on January 18, “The Legendary Witch” recorded an incredible 28.0 percent viewership rating on its January 17 episode, one percent up from last week’s 27.0 percent.
The highest viewership rating achieved by “The Legendary Witch” before that was the January 3 episode with 27.2 percent. They beat this record on January 18, and are now getting closer to breaking the 30 percent mark.
Recently extended by four more episodes, “The Legendary Witch” still has around 15 more episodes to go. Whether or not the drama will make that extra two percent remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, SBS’s “My Heart Twinkle Twinkle,” which was broadcast in the same time slot, recorded a 2.9 percent viewership rating.
