The Non-Dramas on the 2nd week of April 2020

Channel A’s Heart Signal 3 kept its No. 1 crown for the third week, but the prevailing opinion is that the show is more dull than the previous season. TV CHOSUN’s We Will Sing Your Requests �” Call Center of Love drew attention as a revenge match was aired and tvN’s The Great Escape: Season 3, which has been suspended for three weeks, fell to the third place due to decreased amount of “hot topics.” MBC’s I Live Alone, which ranked fourth, is still believed to have turned into a show where celebs flaunt their connections, contrary to the original purpose.
