For the first time, “While You Were Sleeping
” has overtaken “Hospital Ship
” to be the No. 1 Wednesday-Thursday drama in its time slot.
On October 6, Nielsen Korea published the viewership ratings for the dramas that had aired on the night of October 5. SBS's “While You Were Sleeping” recorded an average of 7.9 percent and 8.9 percent across the nation. Although not quite reaching the coveted 10 percent, this was the first time it had beaten “Hospital Ship.”
The episode that aired that night featured a kiss scene between Lee Jong-suk and Suzy in their dreams, possibly contributing to the high ratings.
“Hospital Ship” recorded ratings of 7.1 and 8.3 percent. The KBS special drama “Kang Duk-soon's Love History,” starring former I.O.I member Kim So-hye, recorded 2.9 percent.
