Drama Ranking for the 2nd Week of March

tvN’s Twenty-Five Twenty-One is continuing its reign at No.1 for five weeks straight. Many praised the sweet chemistry between Nam Joo Hyuk and Kim Tae Ri, but some criticized the show for depicting a romance involving a minor. SBS’ Business Proposal rose to No.2 with growing popularity. Kim Se Jung received rave reviews for her acting, and many commented that it’s a little cheesy but fun to watch. KBS’ Young Lady and Gentleman slipped to third place as viewers tuned out of the show due to its slow development. SBS’ Through the Darkness went out on No. 4 with viewers demanding its sequel. Fifth place went to JTBC’s Forecasting Love and Weather as its rating dropped in the last three weeks. However, many left favorable reviews on Song Kang and Park Min Young’s great chemistry. TV CHOSUN’s Love (Ft. Marriage and Divorce) landed at No. 6 with its growing popularity, but it was met with mixed reviews on its rather loose and unstable story.
