Weekly TV Top10: Amid Many Cancellations Due to Halloween Tragedy, ‘Under the Queen’s Umbrella’ Wins First Place’

Drama Ranking for the 1st Week of November

tvN’s Under the Queen’s Umbrella has maintained the top spot for the third week, but the controversy over historical inaccuracy continues. Viewers are showing two different responses: one side is saying that the fact that this is a “fusion historical drama” should be put into consideration, while the other is saying that since the story is set in the Joseon dynasty, attention to the details is necessary. The 10/29 disaster that occurred in Itaewon on the last weekend of October affected the rankings as some of the dramas got canceled. SBS’s Cheer Up, which canceled its broadcast for a week, fell to fourth place, while MBC’s The Golden Spoon and SBS’s One Dollar Lawyer climbed up to second and third places. Meanwhile, the voices of disappointment over One Dollar Lawyer have only increased due to its constant cancellations and the lacking probability of the overall story since the network announced the show’s end after 12 episodes. SBS will air the final episode of One Dollar Lawyer on the 11th and premiere the new drama The First Responders the very next day. KBS’s new drama Curtain Call debuted in fifth place. Though the overall plot flows calmly, the show deals with the pain of modern history, which was rarely dealt with in recent K-series, and the actors’ solid performances are getting favorable reviews. The reenactment of the Hungnam evacuation during the Korean War in the opening sequence is especially well-received. tvN’s Blind ended in tenth place, and MBC’s May I Help You? went off the chart after canceling its broadcast for a week.
