Drama Ranking for the 1st Week of May

JTBC’s Doctor Cha has reclaimed the top spot. Despite the heavy themes of infidelity and illegitimate children, the actors’ flawless performances and the characters’ charm continue to draw in viewers. The unfolding of Cha Jung Suk’s discovery of her husband’s long-term affair has everyone’s attention on what lies ahead. SBS’s Dr. Romantic 3 was nudged to second place. The reveal of the secret of the character Jang Dong Hwa, played by Lee Shin Young, has sparked significant interest. However, there has been some backlash against the appearance of Lee Kyeong Yeong, who has been typecast in similar villainous roles in previous works. tvN’s Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938 debuted in third place. Its initial buzz was 36.7% lower than that of season 1’s premiere week, but the reactions of viewers in the first week of this season’s broadcast are mostly positive, focusing on the overall bigger scale of the production. JTBC’s The Good Bad Mother came in fourth. The drama is maintaining its buzz, primarily due to the rave reviews about the performances of the cast. KBS’s new drama My Perfect Stranger debuted in sixth place.
