JTBC’s “The World of the Married” has officially made K-drama history! The drama series continues to increase popularity and rising viewership ratings.
Now on its 12th episodes, the drama series reached 24.3% rating nationwide and 26.7% in Seoul, and officially surpassed ‘Sky Castle'(23.78%) becoming the highest rating K-drama in cable television history.
The series is based on the megahit BBC drama series “Doctor Foster” (2015) which depicts the ugly process of divorce in British upper-class society. The second season ends with all of the members of the family – the mother, the father and the son – being damaged by the divorce in ways that no one anticipated. Although the “The World” closely follows the narrative of the original, it remains to be seen if they’ll follow suit for the ending as well.
The World of the Married airs every Friday and Saturday at 10.50 pm KST on jTBC.
