A huge stupendous congratulations for just concluded jTBC weekend drama Women of Dignity, shattering records and accolades along the way of telling the female life story with renewed energy and vigor. The drama already broke the cable network’s own best episode rating record four episodes ago when it had a rating in the 9% range slightly higher then previous record holder Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. Pundits were waiting to see if it broke the vaunted 10% ceiling and with this Sunday’s final episode it steamrolled past that mark.
The final episode recorded 12.065% ratings, a nearly 2% increase from the previous high of 9.986% and an astronomical jump for a cable network drama. Even more exciting and impressive was the drama having two female leads Kim Hee Sun and Kim Sun Ah and none of the OTP romance fluff, instead focusing on the travails and tribulations of the women living in modern day Korea trying to have financial security vis-a-vis the men around them. I’m so happy for both actresses in attaining this new career high and can’t wait to finish this drama marathon!
