“The World Of The Married” Overtakes “Itaewon Class” To Become 2nd Highest-Rated Drama In JTBC History
JTBC’s new drama “The World of the Married” shows no signs of slowing down!
Last month, “The World of the Married” made JTBC history with its premiere, setting a new record for the highest ratings achieved by the first episode of any JTBC drama. In the weeks since, the drama has become a certified hit, reaching a new all-time high in viewership ratings with each new episode.
Its latest episode proved no exception: on April 11, the sixth episode of “The World of the Married” scored average ratings of 18.8 percent nationwide and 21.4 percent in the Seoul metropolitan area, marking a significant jump from its previous record of 14.7 percent and 16.1 percent from the night before.
Not only did the ratings mark a new personal best for the drama, but just six episodes into its run, “The World of the Married” has already overtaken “Itaewon Class” to achieve the second-highest viewership ratings in JTBC drama history. (“Itaewon Class” achieved the highest ratings of its run during its finale, which scored average ratings of 16.5 percent nationwide and 18.3 percent in the Seoul metropolitan area.)
“The World of the Married” is now 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 “The World of the Married” on their impressive achievement!
