Mon-Tues Drama Military Prosecutor Doberman with Ahn Bo Hyun and Jo Boa is tvN’s Second Biggest Hit in 2022 Thus Far with Final Episode Breaking 10% Ratings

The question in the next few weeks is whether just finished tvN Mon-Tues drama Military Prosecutor Doberman will remain in the 2nd spot or drop to 3rd with the similar high ratings of still airing tvN weekend drama Our Blues. Military Prosecutor Doberman concluded this week and this drama actually had really high ratings for tvN but remains quite underrated in online chatter and audience buzz. The ratings started at 5.263% and went up to between 7%-8% through the entire run and the final episode surged to 10.081%. Any tvN drama that breaks 10% is a big hit so this drama clearly earned the success despite not having a high profile cast. Ahn Bo Hyun, Jo Boa, Oh Yeon Su, Kim Young Min, and Kim Woo Suk are the leads in what I see as the K-drama version of JAG, and I only have a half life when it comes to legal themed dramas since that is my real life work so I am quite picky about which legal dramas I want to spend my time on. I’ve heard so much great feedback on this drama so if you love legal dramas I think it’s safe to marathon now!
