The Atypical Family ratings slip

After witnessing a rise in both its domestic and global viewership numbers, Jang Ki Yong’s supernatural rom-com saw its ratings drop to 3.5 percent as it kicked off its second run of the season. Last week, the show recorded an average of 4.2 percent, while also climbing to the sixth position in the Netflix non-English category. Now it has slipped to number eight.

tvN’s The Midnight Romance in Hagwon, a replacement for the hit Queen of Tears, despite its star-studded cast, failed to impress. Surrounded by controversies over some 'inappropriate' scenes, the show's ratings dropped to score an average nationwide rating of 4.2 percent for its fifth episode. Meanwhile, KBS 2TV’s Beauty and Mr. Romantic remained the most-watched with 15.26 percent.
