MBC's historical epic "Dong Yi - Jewel in the Crown" drew in a bigger crowd this week, taking the No. 1 spot on television charts Monday and Tuesday nights for the 16th consecutive time.
Figures from TNmS (Total National Multimedia Statistics) on Wednesday revealed that "Dong Yi," into its 38th episode, scored viewership ratings of 28.8 percent on July 26 and increased by 1.8 percent the following day.
This points to an average 1.2 percent rise compared to last week's ratings, although the show remains in second place for overall weekly TV ratings, behind KBS drama "Bread, Love and Dreams."
Data released by AGB Nielsen Media Research indicated lower ratings -- 24.4 percent on Monday and 25.7 percent on Tuesday night.
This week's episode focused on how Suk-jong (Ji Jin-hee) removed the title of Jang Hee-bin (Lee So-yeon) and ordered for the return of Queen Inhyeon (Park Ha-sun).
Meanwhile, SBS' drama "Giant" continued to follow behind in second place, bringing in ratings between the 15 to 19 percent range on both charts.
