Weekly TV Top10: ‘My Dearest’ & ‘The First Responders 2’ Get Off to a Weak Start

The First Responders 2

Drama Ranking for 1st Week of August

JTBC’s King the Land concluded in the first place, illustrating a happy ending for Junho and YoonA. Despite receiving criticism for being clichéd throughout its broadcast, it managed to maintain significant popularity until the end, thanks to the two actors’ fantastic chemistry. Netflix’s D.P. 2 rose to second place but has not reached the buzz of the first season. tvN’s The Uncanny Counter 2 also failed to continue the momentum of its first season. The new tvN drama My Lovely Liar, starring Kim So Hyun and Hwang Minhyun, debuted in fourth place. Many expressed satisfaction with the visual chemistry of the two actors, anticipating future developments. The Friday-Saturday drama battle between SBS and MBC that had garnered viewers’ interest ended in disappointing results for all. The First Responders, which returned for a second season, achieved solid ratings but fell short compared to Revenant, the show aired right before, and the online buzz was overshadowed by My Dearest. My Dearest, which had raised expectations about whether Namkoong Min could revive MBC’s sluggish performance, was critiqued for some actors’ performances and the direction. ENA’s Not Others is seeing a rise in ratings through word-of-mouth, and Longing for You has secured a stable viewership.
