[Weekly TV Top 10] Romance Genre Took Over the Small Screen; ‘Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha’ Takes the Crown

Drama Ranking for the 5th Week of September

tvN’s Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha retained the crown once again. The various episodes of Shin Min Ah and Kim Seon Ho, who officially became an item, are receiving favorable responses. In Korea and other Asian countries, the series has surpassed Squid Game in Netflix’s Top 10 ranking, climbing to the top spot. SBS’s One the Woman has solidified its position as the highest-rated drama among all the Friday-Saturday series, easily beating MBC’s The Veil. Along with Lee Ha Nee’s deft and comical acting, the start of the romance between Lee Sang Yoon and her drew attention. The Veil, on the other hand, fell to No. 5. SBS’s Lovers of the Red Sky resumed its broadcast after the Chuseok season and climbed up to No. 3. As the relationship between Kim Yoo Jung and Ahn Hyo Seop gradually deepened, a love triangle with Gong Myung started in earnest, raising the excitement. tvN’s Yumi’s Cells ranked fourth for the second week. Kim Go Eun and Ahn Bo Hyun’s date received enthusiastic reactions. JTBC’s Lost continued to see a decline in its popularity, falling to No. 6.
