[Weekly TV Top 10] A Battle Between ‘The Penthouse 3’ and ‘Hospital Playlist 2’

Drama Ranking for the 1st Week of July

tvN’s Hospital Playlist 2 remained in the top spot for two weeks. Especially, the episode about a patient’s natural childbirth and Jung Kyung Ho and Kwak Sun Young’s love story drew keen attention. SBS’s The Penthouse 3: War in Life ranked 2nd for the second week. Eugene’s death in the play became the hottest topic, and the possibility of her being alive created a heated debate. tvN’s Doom at Your Service ended with a grand finale at No. 3. Many showed disappointment over the work and criticized the unconvincing ending.

tvN’s My Roommate Is Gumiho kept its 4th place, but some commented that “the story is getting dull.” However, the Kang Hanna-Kim Do Wan couple gained favorable reviews. tvN’s new series The Devil Judge started on a solid note at No. 5. The trial scene became a big topic of discussion, and viewers were satisfied with the 235-year prison sentence given to a perpetrator. KBS’s At a Distance, Spring Is Green continued to draw a downward curve and fell to 6th place.
