Joo Ji Hoon + Kim Hye Soo’s New Drama “Hyena” Premieres To Strong Ratings; “Itaewon Class” Hits New All-Time High
SBS’s “Hyena” is off to a promising start!
According to Nielsen Korea, the February 21 premiere of the new drama starring Joo Ji Hoon and Kim Hye Soo scored average nationwide ratings of 7.7 percent and 10.3 percent for its two parts. Although “Hyena” wasn’t able to live up to the 19.1 percent finale ratings achieved by “Stove League” (the drama that previously occupied its time slot), it did beat the ratings of 3.3 percent and 5.5 percent achieved by its predecessor’s premiere.
Meanwhile, JTBC’s “Itaewon Class” continued to reach new viewership highs with its latest episode. The February 21 broadcast of the hit drama scored an average nationwide rating of 12.289 percent, marking its highest ratings to date.
