SBS's 'While You Were Sleeping' has reached a new record high in viewer ratings. According to Nielson Korea, the episode that aired on October 18 reached 8.6% in viewer ratings during the first half and increased to 10.0% for the second half of the show, setting a new personal best for the drama. This was a huge step up for the series as it was the first time the drama received such high viewer ratings in double-digits.
The episode featured a kissing scene between characters Jung Jae Chan (Lee Jong Suk) and Nam Hong Joo (Suzy), which played a vital role in the high viewer ratings. The other Wed/Thurs dramas including KBS's 'Mad Dog' recorded 6.9% and MBC's 'Hospital Ship' sailed steadily with 8.3% in the first half and a total of 8.6% in the second half.
