With ratings of 24.3% in its twelfth episode, "The World of the Married" is now officially the highest rated jTBC drama of all time, passing the 23.8% record set by "SKY Castle" last year in its finale going by Nielsen Korea metrics. This also makes "The World of the Married" the highest rated cable drama of any network, with four episodes yet to air.
In third place on the Nielsen scale is "Crash Landing on You" from earlier this year with ratings of 21.7%. "Goblin", from 2017, holds fourth place with 20.5%. Both "Crash Landing on You" and "Goblin" are tvN dramas. The latest resurgence of jTBC has established noteworthy dominance over tvN, historically the stronger cable network in terms of drama programming.
