jTBC Drama Behind Your Touch with Han Ji Min and Lee Min Ki Jumps Again in Ratings to 7% as the Surprise Late Summer Hit

And good it is, from all the reviews and also the ratings this is the August hit that people thought The Uncanny Counter 2 would be. This past Sunday’s episode 4 came in at 7% ratings, another noticeable jump from the previous 5% range and starting to really ratchet up the momentum.
