The second episode of SBS’s Backstreet Rookie, which aired on June 20, recorded 3.7 percent to 6.8 percent viewership. Also, during the highlight scene, the viewership soared up to 8.2 percent in the Seoul metropolitan area and 7.3 percent nationwide, topping the viewership among all mini-series aired on Saturday.

The figure is up from the previous episode despite the controversy over its sexually suggestive content.

Meanwhile, KBS2’s Once Again garnered 23.1 percent to 28.8 percent viewership, while TV Chosun’s King Maker: The Change of Destiny recorded 4.903 percent viewership.
