According to media analyst AGB Nielsen Media Research, the 6th episode of “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” reached a nation-wide viewer rating of 8.4%, beating the previous episode’s rating of 8.0%. At the same time, MBC’s “Dong Yi” and SBS’s “Giant” hold record ratings of 24.5% and 24.2% respectively, and are fighting neck-to-neck to achieve higher ratings.
Compared to the two shows that are fighting over 1st and 2nd place on the drama charts, “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” seems behind by a considerable gap. Although the show has already reached the 6th episode, the one-digit viewer rating has been deemed pitiful. At first glance, the statistics may seem discouraging; yet these very same numbers are demonstrating the show’s potential, as it consistently rakes in higher numbers in an upward trend.
On the 30th of August, “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” began its first episode with a low rating of 6.3%. With every new episode, however, ratings for the show has been increasing in small increments. Additionally, the fact that ratings are increasing despite competing against two boomingly popular shows, “Dong Yi” and “Giant” indicate some promise of popularity in the future.
If the upward trend keeps up, there is still a chance that the show will reach double digits in ratings.
