"Queen of Mystery," KBS 2TV's comic detective series, maintained its lead in the mid-week drama race, becoming the only late-night show with a double-digit rating amongst its competitors, data showed Friday.

Episode eight of the Wednesday-Thursday series "Queen of Mystery" recorded a 10.5 percent nationwide viewership Thursday night, according to Nielsen Korea. 

SBS TV's "Saimdang, Memoir of Colors" stood at 8.4 percent and MBC TV's office series "Radiant Office" came in at 6.8 percent.

"Queen of Mystery" stars Kwon Sang-woo as Ha Wan-seung, an elite hard-boiled narcotics detective. His opposite is Choi Kang-hee, cast as Yoo Seol-ok, an unassuming neighborhood "ajumma," who is a natural-born genius crime solver.

"Ajumma" is a generic term in Korean for married women who have the image of being middle-aged, tough and stubborn, as well as wearing unfashionable clothes.

Despite having no authority in law enforcement, Seol-ok constantly snoops around crime scenes to investigate pending cases, clashing with investigations led by Wan-seung. Though reluctant at first, Wan-seung accepts her talent and joins forces with her. (Yonhap)
