Following the end of "Hotel Del Luna", its replacement, "Arthdal Chronicles", has taken the drama's number one spot among late night dramas. "Arthdal Chronicles" also preceded "Hotel Del Luna" and its performance then, while good, was an underperformance compared to expectations and budget.
Since returning, "Arthdal Chronicles" has largely continued from where it left off. With the average ratings for the latest episode hitting 6.94% on Sunday after a series low of 4.83% on Saturday. Momentum is unlikely to move "Arthdal Chronicles" anywhere, as the drama is already in its final week.
