KBS Remake of Suits Ends with 10.7% Ratings and tvN’s Why Secretary Kim Break 6% in Second Week

This Wed-Thurs saw the conclusion of the K-drama remake of Suits, a high profile drama with leads Jang Dong Gun and Park Hyung Sik which led the time slot but didn’t manage to create big ratings. The final episode broke 10% with 10.7% and the other prime time competitors The Undateables (Handsome Guy and Jung Eum) and Come and Hug Me are both in the 3% ratings range. I’ve been waiting for Suits to finish and marathon plus I only have the time for one legal drama and it’s Lawless Lawyer on the weekends for now. The real success of the Wed-Thurs time slot is tvN newcomer rom-com Why Secretary Kim which increased from the 5% ratings range of the first two episodes last week to breaking 6% in this second week – episode 3 got 6.950% and episode 4 brought in 6.379%.
