[Weekly TV Top 10] Small Screen Missing a Mega Hit Series

These days, there are no super exciting series on TV. Although Taxi Driver has consistently garnered more than 10% in viewership, it falls short compared to The Penthouse 2 and Vincenzo. Series such as Youth of May and Doom at Your Service, though led by rising stars, are not seeing much growth in viewer ratings. However, in June, The Penthouse 3 and Hospital Playlist 2 are returning to the small screen. Luckily, they both have high expected ratings and unmatched fame. Will one of these or any other show turn out to be a mega-hit on the small screen in June? We’ll have to wait and see to find out!

Let’s take a look at last week’s top-rated TV shows in Korea!
