Twenty Five, Twenty One and Forecasting Love and Weather Drop Slightly in Ratings with the Return of Full Slate of Competing K-dramas After Olympic Break

It’s the third week of airing for Twenty Five, Twenty One and Forecasting Love and Weather and its facing the more typical big line up of competing K-dramas which are back after Olympic hiatus, and for one drama after scandal hiatus. Episode 3 of Twenty Five dropped below 8% to 7.956% and for Forecasting Love and Weather it dropped from 7% down to 6.103%. These numbers may be what both drama will stay at for the remainder of its run. For the returnees it was all lower then when it went on break. Through the Darkness came back with 5.1% which is a drama low, Tracer got 5.0%, 6.2% which is also lower than any episode in the first half got. Taejong Lee Bang Won, which didn’t air for 5 weeks after a horse died during filming, is also back to airing and brought in 8.0%, and before that incident its ratings had reached 11%. There is also a new drama started this Saturday, season 3 of Marriage Lyrics and Divorce Music which swapped out a few of the male leads from the prior two seasons, and it premiered to 5.240% and 6.293% for TV Chosun which proves this mega makjang drama still has legs.

  2. FYI Admin, you can watch all episodes of Tracer drama season 2 on OTT Wavve. That answers the reason why Tracer’s rating is not as big as before :). There seems to be something odd here between Wavve and MBC.

  3. Through the darkness actually resumed on Friday and it got 8pc ratings.
    I was right , 2521 and weather forecast ratings were high because of Olympics. The competition isn’t easy especially with that makjang drama airing rn.

  4. Through the Darkness is so good! It’s really nice to see a good police drama.

    I loved the production in 25 21, it’s so beautiful and nostalgic in the same time.

  5. Through the darkness is back ?. Even if i enjoy watching 2521 and Forecasting , Through the darkness is just what i love in the police ‘s dramas . All the cast is just perfect .

  6. I will stay with flaw no matter what it has a very fast paced scene and awesome weather forecasting and ofcourse the cast that I love from day 1 ?

  7. I will never understand why kdramas report ratings in the form of percentages. Unless we know what number these percentages are percentages of we have no idea what they mean. More specifically, it is fairly pointless to compare two percentages.

    For example, Wikipedia lists the actual viewership numbers for both 25/21 and Forecasting. These tell us that an episode of 25/21 on average is viewed by 1.9M people, while an episode of Forecast is viewed on average by 1.46M people. That also means that 25/21 is viewed by close to 75% more people than Forecast – something it is impossible to know if you only report unspecified percentages.

    I really wonder what is the reason for not just reporting actual viewership numbers. It is such a strange practice.

  8. I’m surprised FLAW had a much bigger drop than 2521 since it has less competition on Saturdays than 2521. 2125 held up really well.

    • Through the darkness is amazing, glad it’s back.

      Eventhough 2521 does interest me, I Will not watch it till it finishes and ends solid. I just don’t trust romance type shows like that, it recently happened with hometown too which was good till ep10.

  9. Chosen season 3 drama had two male leads and one supporting senior actress not returning this season. The replacement actors felt quite a downgrade for me. Especially with the actress now playing Dongmi.

    For me it would have been better if they were written off the story or say they were involved in horrific accidents and had major plastic surgery.

    So not sure if this season will continue to do well since season two ended somewhere in 16%.

    • I meant TV Chosun.

      Seems like FLAW and 2521 didn’t lose much audience. Just not likely to jump any higher since there’s plenty of shows to watch.

      And my viewing preference among the dramas is Through the Darkness. Despite the long break, it is still the one that interests me the most.

  10. Can anyone suggest a site to watch Tracer? The subtitles on the initial episodes are horrible for three ones I’ve attempted to watch. Better subtitles needed.
