Son Ye Jin’s drama “Thirty Nine” sees a drop in ratings for latest episode after achieving a personal best last week 

“Thirty Nine” recorded a decline in viewership this week. 

On March 2, episode 5 of “Thirty Nine” starring Son Ye Jin, Jeon Mi Do and Kim Ji Hyun recorded average ratings of 5.5% nationwide and 6.1% in Seoul. This is a sharp drop by 2% compared to the previous episode, which was the drama’s highest rating since its first broadcast. 

In episode 5, Cha Mi Jo (Son Ye Jin) and Jang Joo Hee (Kim Ji Hyun) decide to respect Jung Chan Young‘s (Jeon Mi Do) wish not to undergo chemotherapy. Instead, the trio vow to spend the remaining 6 months of Jung Chan Young doing everything they want to do. Cha Mi Jo visits her boyfriend Kim Sun Woo. The two open up about their current difficulties and share a soft kiss.

Many viewers believe the rating for episode 5 decreased because there was no climax, plus the airtime was changed to 30 minutes earlier than usual, which may have affected the rating.

Netizens’ comments:

  • I enjoy yesterday’s episode though
  • Yesterday’s episode had no climax, so maybe that’s why the rating dropped 
  • Yesterday’s episode was light but there were many emotional scenes.
  • “Thirty Nine” is not for everyone. The drama suits those who are around the same age with the characters the most. 

Thirty Nine” airs every Wednesday and Thursday night on JTBC and Netflix.
