[Weekly TV Top 10] The Fulfilling Happy Ending: ‘Mr. Queen’ Lands on No. 1

Starting the week after the Lunar New Year holiday, TV networks have begun their battles between new dramas. From the new Mon-Tues drama River Where the Moon RisesHello, Me! which kicked off together on the 17th, Sisyphus: The Myth, weekend dramas Beyond EvilVicenzoTimes, to The Penthouse: War in Life which is coming back with its second season. Attention is focused on the series as we wonder which of them will be led to success first. While it was more relaxed after some of the popular series have closed their curtains last week, let’s have a look at which programs did well this week.

 

Drama Ranking for the 2nd Week of February

Mr. Queen has come to an end, as the drama with the fifth-highest viewer ratings in tvN’s history, breaking its own highest record of 17.4% (based on Nielsen Korea’s nation-wide standards). Although the show was embroiled in controversies throughout its running, its actors including Shin Hye Sun and Kim Jung Hyun calmed them and captivated viewers with their excellent performances. In the second place is The Penthouse 2, which has been receiving burning attention even since before its start. The debate on whether Shim Soo Ryun will revive or not has been continuing, as she has been excluded from press activities, including in photos of the scrip-reading site which was released by the production team.
