Drama Ranking for the Fourth Week of July

tvN’s Hospital Playlist 2 saw a slight drop in popularity but still managed to stay in the top spot for the 5th week. Viewers showed two mixed reactions: on one hand, they are satisfied with the story, but on the other hand, some think the first season was better. tvN’s The Devil Judge ranked 2nd, making headlines with its intriguing plot. Third place went to You Are My Spring. Though it came in a higher ranking compared to the previous week, its popularity has seen a steady decline since the premiere episode. SBS’s The Penthouse 3 was canceled for one week due to the Olympics, hence dropping to 4th place. JTBC’s Nevertheless ranked 5th, but many showed disappointment over the story. TV CHOSUN’s Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) 2, is not airing for a week and came in 6th for two weeks in a row.
