MBC’s drama “Empress Ki, Battle of Flowers” achieved its third straight win atop prime time TV charts.

The historic epic stood at the top position on AGB Nielsen Media Research (Nielsen Korea)’s ratings chart with an average mark of 15.4 percent on November 11 and 12, the chart showed on Wednesday.

In this week’s episodes, Seung-nyang (Ha Ji-won) succeeded to enter the crown with Ta-hwan (Ji Chang-wook) and reunite with Wang Yu (Joo JIn-mo), while Tanasilli (Baek Jin-hee) made her first appearance.

Sitting at No. 2 is SBS’s series “The Mystery Housemaid,” which continued to sit at the runner-up place with an average viewership of 9.3 percent in the same time frame.

KBS’s drama “Marry Him If You Dare” kept its dissatisfying position at number three after drawing in only 5.7 percent of total viewers.

Meanwhile, TNmS’s (Total National Multimedia Statistic) survey showed the three programs in the same order yet slightly lower numbers than Nielsen Korea’s.

“Empress Ki” grabbed the second top seed with an average score of 14.3 percent, while “Housemaid” and “Marry Him” followed next two spots, each with average marks of 8.2 and 4.9 percent, respectively.
