[Weekly TV Top 10] ‘The Devil Judge’ and ‘Nevertheless’ End on a Great Note

Drama Ranking for the 3rd Week of August

tvN’s Hospital Playlist 2 ranked 1st once again. The scene where Jung Kyung Ho learns about Kwak Sun Young’s illness and Jo Jung Suk drew keen attention. SBS’s The Penthouse 3 rose up to 2nd place, but criticisms over the gruesome death of Kim So Yeon were poured out. People are mostly reacting that seeing the villains suffer is unpleasant rather than exhilarating. tvN’s The Devil Judge ended at No. 3. Ji Sung and Jinyoung’s plan to punish the evil was satisfying, but the sudden acceleration in the plot left disappointments. JTBC’s Nevertheless, which made headlines throughout the show with Song Kang and Han So Hee’s perfect looks, ended in 5th place. The ending of the youth romance was beautifully decorated with two people who went around a long way and finally became real lovers.
