[Weekly TV Top 10] ‘The World of the Married’ Still Tops the Popularity Chart Despite Controversy over the Attack Scene

The King: Eternal Monarch joined the small screen, which has been dominated by The World of the Married for the past few weeks. Although both works were criticized for their problematic productions, they both ranked high in the popularity chart that combines dramas and non-dramas. Overall, the drama category continues to remain strong. The non-drama sector has produced no significant “hot topics” since Mr. Trot has ended. Let’s check out which programs have made headlines over the past week.

The World of the Married topped the drama popularity chart for four consecutive weeks. Kim Eun Sook’s new drama The King: Eternal Monarch has posed a challenge, but it only received lukewarm responses, along with negative opinions regarding some set-ups. Hospital Playlist has continued to receive favorable responses though it has fallen a step down in the popularity chart, whereas Hi Bye, Mama!, which aired its finale last weekend, has received mixed responses with its questionable ending.
