With two Monday-Tuesday dramas set to finish this week, the battle for viewership ratings continues.

MBC’s “Partners for Justice” averaged 6.7 percent and 8.4 percent nationwide during its July 16 broadcast according to Nielsen Korea. While it saw a slight decrease compared to its ratings last week, the drama continued to be first among its competitors in the same time slot.

Popular among adults, “Partners for Justice” also saw its highest rating yet at 5.1 percent among viewers in their 20s to 40s, which is considered the target audience of most broadcasters. This was the highest rating in this specific age group across all public broadcasting and cable channels. The broadcast brought forth the shocking truth behind the murder case that had remained unsolved for 30 years.

SBS’s “Wok of Love” also maintained its position in second place with average ratings of 5.4 percent and 6.4 percent. The July 16 broadcast explored heartbreak as Seo Poong (2PM’s Junho) and Dan Sae Woo (Jung Ryeo Won) faced another series of challenges, both in their relationship and their restaurant.

KBS2’s “Are You Human, Too” brought in 4.4 percent and 5.1 percent in viewership. Seo Kang Joon shined in this broadcast as he expressed the confusion and despair that robot Namshin III felt at the possibility of not being needed anymore.

Both “Partners for Justice” and “Wok of Love” will be ending on July 17.
