"Mr. Queen" rating continues to rise despite criticism for 'distorting history'

TvN series "Mr. Queen" is seeing a continuous rise in its viewership rating despite controversy over "distorting history," scoring its highest rating with Saturday's episode at 11.3 percent.

The historical fantasy drama, set in the Joseon Kingdom period, is about a modern-day chef Jang Bong-hwan (Choi Jin-hyuk) who mysteriously slips through time and becomes trapped in the body of Queen Cheorin (Shin Hye-sun). He as the queen now has to keep his secret from the people in the royal palace, while struggling to fulfill the queen's royal duties.

The comedy series' rating, since kicking off at 8 percent Dec. 12, has been steadily growing with each episode.

However, soon after its airing, the series met with criticism. In episode 2, Queen Cheorin referred to Korea's national treasure the Veritable Records of the Joseon Kingdom as a "tabloid."
