Gallup Korea recently released the results of a new poll measuring the popularity of television programming in South Korea. The poll was taken between January 14th and 16th, with one thousand respondents over the age of eighteen.
Respondents were given the option to list two of their favorite programs by name without prompting. "Crash Landing on You" earned the highest proportion, with it being mentioned by 4.5% of respondents.
Television dramas rarely feature at the top of Gallup polls such as this. The only other two dramas to earn such a high ranking were "Mr. Sunshine" in September of 2018 and "Goblin" in January of 2017. The list is normally dominated by variety shows, and that was also the case here. The second highest performing drama was "Dr. Romantic 2" with 3.2% of respondents in rank number four. The highest ranking for "Dr. Romantic", by contrast, was in the fourth slot in January of 2017.
The only other two dramas appearing in the top ten were "Down the Flower Path" at rank number six with 3% of respondents and "Stove League" at rank number eight with 2.7% of respondents. Four more dramas appear in the top twenty. "Elegant Mother and Daughter" at rank thirteen had 1.9% of respondents. "Beautiful Love, Wonderful Life" and "Black Dog" tied for seventeenth place with 1.4% of respondents. And lastly, "Woman of 9.9 Billion" was in twentieth placer with 1%.
