"SKY Castle" surges in TV ratings
Is entering a prestigious university a matter of life or death in Korea? Maybe yes.
Cable network JTBC's Friday/Saturday drama "SKY Castle" got off to a good start with a storyline about uptown families desperate for their children to enter a top university.
Its viewership rating continues to rise with attention-grabbing scenes and rule-breaking story development. According to ratings research company Nielsen Korea, the 14th episode's nationwide rating reached 15.8% and 17.3% in the Seoul metropolitan area, exceeding JTBC's all-time high drama rating of 12.3% that "Woman of Dignity" set last week."
With six episodes left, attention is on whether "SKY Castle" can reach a 20% viewership rating.
