Lee Seo Jin is a variety gold. All his variety shows are extremely popular for some reasons. I want him in dramas again tbh. His last dramas has been ages ago.

Seojin's last drama was the Marriage Contract with Uee.

I want him in a drama with Choi Jiwoo. :D

Damn, does that making it the highest rated cable show ever too?
dbil 28th-Jan-2018 10:07 am (UTC)
Are we including Korean dramas in to that mix? I don't think it's the highest rated cable show ever. tvN's Goblin got 20% last year.

The highest rated variety shows on cable all belong to NA PD.

I’m sorry, I’m looking at the 18.8 figure. That number would have been better than both Reply and Goblin.

It is the highest rated variety show for a cable TV.

For the highest rated show, it is still hold by Reply 1988 followed by Goblin.

Reply 1988 highest average ratings would be 19.6% (episode 20). I'm sure Reply's all-time high of would be 22% to 24%. All time high referred to the highest rating the show managed to hit at one point of time during its run.
musicnkisses 28th-Jan-2018 06:59 pm (UTC)
Ahh. Other places have Reply at 18.8 too. I don’t know tho. Youn’s will probably hit 24% tho

This user on reddit posts the subbed episodes whenever they are available. That link is for episode 3 but the links to 1 and 2 are at the bottom.
