According to a report issued by Nielsen Korea, the KBS2 drama "I Remember You" recorded 4.8 percent in nationwide viewership for its July 7 episode. The series, which stars Jang Nara and Seo In Guk, continues to struggle with ratings, despite several high-profile cameos including EXO's D.O.
The sixth episode of the series opened with detective Cha Ji An (Jang Nara) reviewing files from the complicated murder case of a man who was wrongly accused of murdering his daughter and wife. With the aid of esteemed criminal profiler Lee Hyun (Seo In Guk), Ji An and her investigative crime team were able to solve a string of homicides which were linked to the closed case.
In the June 7 episode, Lee Hyun explored the circumstances which led to his permanent memory loss. A victim of childhood trauma, he continued to live within the home where his father was brutally killed. After examining a photo from his youth, he discovers that he has this gap in his memory due to his encounter with the vicious murderer, Lee Joo Yeong (EXO's D.O.).
The SBS romantic melodrama, "High Society" continues to demonstrate solid ratings, recording 9.2 percent of nationwide viewership. This was a decrease of 0.2 percent from ratings recorded on July 6.
"High Society" provides commentary on the skewed societal viewers of conglomerate heirs and Korea's upper echelon.
The July 7 episode unveiled the truth behind origins of the relationship between heiress Jang Yoon Ha (After School's Uee) and Choi Joon Ki (Sung Joon). While his motives for dating Yoon Ha appeared to be innocent, his mother unwittingly revealed that he had collected extensive information on the conglomerate heir.
Lee Ji Yi (Lim Ji Yeon) continued her innocent love with Yoo Chang Soo (ZE:A's Park Hyung Sik), despite numerous attempts by his mother to disrupt their relationship.
Meanwhile, the MBC period series "Splendid Politics" recorded 8.8 percent in viewership.
