Itaewon Class is the 3rd jTBC Drama to Break 10% Ratings After Sky Castle and Women of Dignity

I feel like 2020 is starting out with a major statement towards the state of K-drama ratings using the statement the rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated. This Friday jTBC drama Itaewon Class got 10.716% ratings in episode 5 which is WILD, and makes this drama only the 3rd jTBC drama to break 10% following Sky Castle and Women of Dignity. The ratings rise for this drama has been a sight to behind, increasing by leaps and bounds the first four episodes and now breaking a very big milestone barrier. Even more incredible is that it broke 10% already by episode 5, Sky Castle didn’t even go over 10% until episode 10. Let’s all watch and see what this unexpected hit can accomplish by the end of its run!

  1. Interesting drama. PSJ is great. Now I really like Kim Da Mi, very cool and Ooooo I like her hair. I might get it done myself 😊

    • Exactly, she’s not typical korean beauty but she has the charisma. I like her too. And her character too. And this is the first time i like psj’s character since kmhm.

  2. A simple story, great 3 leads ( thanks for casting an actress who justifies sociopath role instead of some idol who would’ve ruined it ) and nara is doing good too. Great supporting cast and great evil father. Great cinematography. This drama has reached 10% faster than cloy which is huge blockbuster and the episode was good too. They have audience in pocket now and just don’t mess the story or make crap epis because it can endup highest rated cable drama of all time. Park seo joon best thing he did was joining army as teenager , so from 2015 to 2020 he has become such a huge star from side roles to leading man! It is also esson for free public channels who cry that noone watches tv . people watch tv if you provide them good content which jtbc n tvn r providing. You don’t need some ground breaking story to make a good show. A welll made simple story can bring ratings. I am loving the female lead. Actress is doing amazing!

  3. I love how smart both the lead female characters are. I’m so tired of the hard working but kind of dumb or naive female characters who needs the male character to swoop in and make their life better. It’s rather the other way around in this drama where the smart women are trying to help the clueless (so far) male. I love how direct the female characters are. Looking forward to see how this trio develops.

  4. 6th episode rating 11.6% jeez sky castle isnt safe at all. It might endup biggest cable drama in peak ratings as well as average

  5. A really good drama imo. It has some Nice Guy vibe plot. I love it when the male lead is come from bottom and climbing up to the top make from making plan. I just abit tired with the male lead has already has an establish position storyline. Giant vs goliath really can make an interesting story. It remains compelling even after episode 6.

  6. Strong female character, whoohoo for Kim Da Mi! Love that the Korean viewers are embracing her character as well. PSJ is awesome too – some restraint in his acting, love it!

  7. i just started watching it, it’s so good. ratings will go even more after that ending in episode 6. this drama has the potential to beat cloy and maybe even sky castle.

  8. i just started watching it, it’s so good. ratings will go even more after that ending in episode 6. this drama has the potential to beat cloy and maybe even sky castle….

    • Yes totally. The whole cast is soooo good including the baddies. Every character has own problem, no right or wrong, just a life choice in order to survive. Excellent drama so far. Hope it will keep up. It is better than CLOY imo, I cannot connect with SYJ (don’t bash me as I know a lot of people like her as a senior actress), her character is too childish and does not make sense with her background as a 35+ executive… I like Kim Da Mi much better.

  9. I just marathoned the drama and I LOVE IT!!!! I cannot wait until the next episode and I’m hooked! Everything is on point. The acting, the script, and Kim Da Mi rocks!!! This must surely be her breakout tv role.
