“The King: Eternal Monarch” ratings aren’t improving!
On May 9, “The King: Eternal Monarch” aired its 8th episode and according to Nielsen Korea, the drama has recorded a new low.
Previously, the 7th episode of “The King: Eternal Monarch” was the lowest rating numbers the drama has ever achieved thus far, however, its 8th episode has officially become the lowest point for the series.
According to Nielsen Korea, “The King: Eternal Monarch” 8th episode (part 1 and 2) recorded an average of 6.1% and 8.1%, marking the first time the series reached 6% in its entire run and its lowest to date.
Despite the plot progressing in a faster pace for the past two weeks, “The King: Eternal Monarch” has been struggling to maintain viewership ratings in South Korea despite its massive popularity overseas. It has been the top Netflix drama each week because of international fans interest but this interest hasn’t been the same for k-netizens.
What are your thoughts on “The King: Eternal Monarch” so far?
My Personal Thoughts
If you read my blog then you know I’ve been critical of “The King: Eternal Monarch” because I expect the best from the writer and director. But I have to say episode 6,7 and 8 have been very nice. I just finished watching episode 8 and I really liked it, the series is finally picking up. I think its so sad that k-netizens have given up but considering everything “The King: Eternal Monarch” has been through, I kinda get it.
I wish “The King: Eternal Monarch” picks up next week.
