The 9th episode of the SBS Friday-Saturday drama ‘Taxi Driver 2', aired on March 24th, recorded the highest viewership rating of 18.0%, 14.1% in the metropolitan area, and 13.4% nationwide, ranking first in the average weekly mini-series rating. In addition, the 2049 viewer rating recorded 5.6%, ranking first among all programs broadcast on Friday, proving its popularity once again. 

Taxi Driver 2: 

On this day, the broadcast opened the door interestingly by revealing the background of how Do Gi and Jang (Kim Eui Sung) got their hands on the 'Kotaya Incident Record' to escape the surveillance of On Ha Joon (Shin Jae Ha). On Ha Joon became impatient as Kim Do Gi approached his reality, and raised his alert level by pressuring Park Hyeon Jo (Park Jong Hwan), an executive of the "Golden Society" and the head of the police, who was giving him information. Then, when Park Hyeon Jo no longer received information about the 'Rainbow Taxi’, On Ha Joon raised tension by promising, "I have to stop playing house. I will try to raise it to the surface to see if there is more reality. In their own way."
