L Redeems Himself with Success of KBS Sageuk Royal Secret Inspector One Year After Meow: The Secret Boy

The Secret Royal Inspector (or Royal Secret Agent) is retiring with fanfare as the KBS Mon-Tues drama wrapped up this week to a really admirable ratings run. It started off the usual low 5.0% and ended with the final episode 16 having both segments in double digits with 10.2% and 14.0%. Overall the drama headlined by L (Kim Myung Soo), Kwon Nara, and Lee Yi Kyung averaged 8.119% which is really good for a big three network prime time ratings, aside from the runaway hit that is SBS makjang Penthouse. Most ratings are between 3%-6% these days and I continue to be thrilled with more and more dramas proving that if the content is worth watching then there are still viewers on the tube. K-ent is also reporting how this drama fully redeems L for the epic weird mess and super low rated Meow: The Secret Boy. Maybe had the drama aired after yesterday’s epic Lawyer as Cat Zoom meme there would be an appetite for a cat boy show ahahahah. Congrats to the cast and crew of Secret Royal Inspector!
