[Weekly TV Top 10] ‘The Uncanny Counter’ Lands at No. 1 for the First Time

The Uncanny Counter that is writing a new history in OCN blasted into No. 1 after The Penthouse: War in Life left the game. Some debate was sparked over the replacement of the writer, but the drama’s hot popularity still unrivaled. All of this just proves people’s high interest in the project. Just a few episodes before the end, Son Ho Jun’s special appearance in The Uncanny Counter made headlines, and the entertainment show-like special episode also caught the attention. Will it be able to overcome regret over the sluggish plot that arose after a week-cancellation? Let’s check out which programs have made headlines over the past week.


The Dramas on the 2nd Week of January 2021

The Uncanny Counter blasted into No. 1 for the first time. The report of the screenwriter dropping out of the project midway after disagreement over the future development made headlines, and many showed disappointment over the plot that has totally gone south after the screenwriter’s exit. True Beauty, which landed at No. 2, received negative responses over Cha Eun Woo’s styling and most netizens agreed to the comment that reads, “His hair and outfits cover his beauty.” Mr. Queen showed a decrease in popularity for two weeks and fell to third place. Run On ranked fourth despite the slight decline in popularity, but Live On finished at No. 6 even with the one-week cancelation.
