′Reply 1997′ Comes Close to 6 Percent Ratings
TvN′s Reply 1997 is now close to hitting the 6 percent mark in viewership ratings.
The September 11 broadcast of Reply 1997 got average ratings of 4.17 percent, and even peaked at 5.52 percent at one point (TNmS), staying at the top of its time slot for eight weeks in a row.
These numbers are the highest for any Tuesday and Wednesday cable program ever.
The drama also proved it was gathering attention mostly from women in their 20s and 30s by reaching 8.1 percent at its highest in ratings for those age groups.
There is only one episode left until the conclusion of Reply 1997, and the drama is now gathering interest on whether it will be able to pass 6 percent with its last.
Seo In Guk said in a recent interview with enews, "So many people asked about the ending, but I can′t say anything about it," and added, "Still, there could be a twist so I hope all of you tune in for the episode. TvN never had any dramas pass 6 percent in viewership ratings, but I think Reply 1997 will do it."
In the record-breaking episode, Yoon Jae (Seo In Guk) and Si Won (Jung Eun Ji) finally acted according to their feelings for each other, and Tae Woong (Song Jong Ho) completed the love triangle when he learned of Yoon Jae′s feelings.
It even teased with an unexpected twist, having Tae Woong send a text message to Yoon Jae reading, ′I′m sorry...′ showing that Tae Woong had given up on Si Won for his little brother Yoon Jae.
Si Won and Yoon Jae continued to be lovey-dovey as a new couple.
The last scene, which returned to the present, even got viewers worked up by reminding them that Si Won′s husband still remained a mystery.
Reply 1997 will conclude with its grand finale on September 18.
