[Weekly TV Top 10] From ‘Hospital Playlist 2’ to ‘You Are My Spring’, tvN Is on a Roll

Drama Ranking for the 3rd Week of July

tvN’s Hospital Playlist 2 has maintained the top spot for 4 weeks in a way, with a slight increase in popularity compared to the previous week. The episode for Jung Kyung Ho-Kwak Sun Young couple became the hottest topic, and the two actors’ performances received rave reviews. SBS’s The Penthouse 3 came in second for the 4th week. The scene where Logan Lee came back to life drew keen attention, but viewers didn’t so welcome the constant resurrection of dead characters. tvN’s The Devil Judge ranked 3rd. Many showed satisfaction over the plot that’s becoming even more engaging.

Fourth place went to tvN’s You Are My Spring. Viewers expecting a rom-com showed disappointment over the thriller-like development, while viewers expecting more genre-specific stories showed dissatisfaction over the lack of depth in the plot. TV CHOSUN’s Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) 2 has been on the rise for 4 weeks straight, ranking at No. 6.

Non-Drama Ranking for the 3rd Week of July

tvN’s The Great Escape 4 ranked 1st on the chart. After the premiere episode, the cast’s insincere attitude, the excessive subtitles, and over-the-line product placement came heavily under fire. However, they managed to turn around the public opinion with the second episode. MBC’s Hangout with Yoo fell to second place. Many showed disappointment as the journey of the MSG project came to an end after 4 months. MBC’s I Live Alone showed SHINee’s Key going on a trip with his army band and ranked No. 4. Fifth place went to tvN’s DoReMi Market thanks to Song Ji Hyo and Chae Jong Hyeop’s guest appearance.
