This week there were no significant changes in the rankings, with the newly released Black Knight making its debut on the list. JTBC’s Doctor Cha clinched the top spot once again. The series, starring Uhm Jung Hwa, Kim Byung Chul, Myeong Se Bin, and Min Woo Hyuk, has been on a four-week uptick, piquing viewer interest as the complex relationships between the four characters unfold. SBS’s Dr. Romantic 3, tvN’s Tale of the Nine Tailed 1938 and JTBC’s The Good Bad Mother maintained their previous rankings. Tale of the Nine Tailed 1938 is garnering positive response for the bromance between Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum, while The Good Bad Mother has sparked a mix of concern and anticipation with terminal illness introduced to the narrative character. Netflix’s Black Knight debuted at fifth place, despite many viewers pointing out disappointing narratives and scientific inaccuracies. ENA’s Pale Moon ended its run in sixth place, drawing praise for Kim Seo Hyung’s stellar performance till the very end.
