“Itaewon Class” Becomes 2nd Highest-Rated Drama In JTBC History After “SKY Castle”
Just eight episodes into its run, “Itaewon Class” is already making JTBC history!
In the weeks since its premiere last month, the hit drama starring Park Seo Joon—an adaptation of the popular webtoon of the same name—has reached a new all-time high in viewership ratings with each new episode.
The latest episode proved no exception: according to Nielsen Korea, the February 22 broadcast of “Itaewon Class” scored average ratings of 12.6 percent nationwide and 14.0 percent in the Seoul metropolitan area.
Not only did the ratings mark a new personal best for the drama, but “Itaewon Class” has now overtaken “Woman of Dignity” to achieve the second-highest viewership ratings in JTBC drama history.
“Itaewon Class” is currently second only to the smash hit “SKY Castle,” which holds the record for the highest viewership ratings in the history of any Korean cable network (not just JTBC) after scoring a nationwide average of 23.78 percent during its finale.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of “Itaewon Class” on the impressive achievement!
