[Weekly TV Top 10] Three-Cornered Battle Between ‘Twenty-Five Twenty-One,’ ‘Forecasting Love and Weather’ & ‘Thirty-Nine’

Drama Ranking for the 3rd Week of February

tvN’s Twenty-Five Twenty-One took the top spot for two weeks in a row. Though Nam Joo Hyuk and Kim Tae Ti’s chemistry and performances are getting favorable responses, many showed disappointment over the writer’s previous project. JTBC’s Forecasting Love and Weather ranked second for the second week. Viewers are praising the perfect combination of writer, director, and actors, and the unexpected ending of episode four made headlines. JTBC’s new drama Thirty-Nine started off solid at No. 3. Son Ye Jin’s looks and acting prowess are well-received, but there are opinions that the writer’s scripts are not meeting the expectations. Also, many left comments disapproving of the subject of “affair” in the story. KBS’s Young Lady and Gentleman came in fourth. The scene where Lee Se Hee learns about who her mother is became a hot topic. tvN’s Ghost Doctor landed at No. 5. Although actors’ performances have gained positive reviews, many expressed disappointment in the dragging storyline. MBC’s Tracer debuted at sixth place. The entire season two was released on OTT platform Wavve, and the overall solid plot gained praise.
