JTBC’s “Rich Reborn” is now the second highest rated drama in cable television history.
On December 18, the fantasy revenge drama starring Song Joong Ki reached its highest rating yet heading into its final week of release. According to Nielsen Korea, the latest episode of the drama garnered an average nationwide rating of 24.9 percent, a significant jump from last night’s previous episode.
Not only did the ratings set a new personal best for the drama, but “Rich Reborn” surpassed “SKY Castle” for the second highest ratings of any cable drama in history. (“SKY Castle” achieved the highest ratings of its run during its finale, which earned an average nationwide rating of 23.8 percent).
