The World of the Married has just broken the record for the highest-rated Korean drama in cable television, overtaking well-loved titles like SKY Castle and Goblin to claim the top spot. Not only does this make it the most-watched series in South Korea, but it’s also the talk of the internet right now!

While international fans are still recovering from their feelings about Itaewon Class and Crash Landing On You, South Koreans can’t get enough of this K-drama series about a marriage gone awry. The World of the Married focuses on Ji Sun-woo (Kim Hee-ae), a successful doctor who lives a near-perfect life with her family until her husband Lee Tae-oh (Park Hae-joon) betrays her. It spirals into a suspenseful tale of revenge, filled with plot twists and shocking revelations to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. 

Thanks to its intense and sensational storytelling, the 12th episode scored an average rating of 24.33% in South Korea, surpassing the record of 23.74% achieved by the final episode of SKY Castle in 2019. As of 2 May 2020, The World of the Married has earned the highest viewership of any K-drama episode on a South Korean cable network.
