In the latest iteration of the Good Data Report, "Crash Landing on You" has once again topped social media rankings. This was in spite of a Lunar New Year's preemption that had carried over from the previous week, as the data had been compiled from January 27th to February 2nd.
"Stove League" was in second place, with Jo Han-sun and Namgoong Min in the fourth and fifth spots for performers. Jo Han-sun has been experiencing breakout interest. He plays a baseball player on the team that Namgoong Min's character is managing, even though "Stove League" is overall more concerned with the business end of running a baseball team.
"Itaewon Class" debuted in third place, while lead actor Park Seo-joon debuted in third place for actors. Though "Itaewon Class" could not overtake the long high-performing leaders, "Crash Landing on You" and "Stove League", it did lead specifically in Internet searches. This suggests the project did not receive much effective press ahead of its premiere.
