In its final week "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" once again topped the Good Data Report, which measures drama popularity according to media trends. "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" held 34.78% of social media trends recorded from August 3rd to August 9th. Lead actors Seo Ye-ji and Kim Soo-hyun were the number one and number two performers, positions they have held throughout the drama's run. Supporting actor Oh Jung-se was number three while villainess Jang Young-nam was number nine.
The weekend family drama "Once Again" was in second place with 13.23% of references. Ensemble actors Lee Cho-hee and Lee Sang-yi-I ranked numbers seven and ten for performers off the strength of recent story developments regarding the romance between their characters. In its final week "Backstreet Rookie" was number three for dramas with 11.45%, with lead actors Kim Yoo-jung and Ji Chang-wook holding fourth and sixth place for performers.
"Flower of Evil" dropped from its premiere week to fourth place with 9.83% of references, with lead actors Lee Joon-gi and Moon Chae-won ranked fifth and eighth place for performers. "Secret Forest 2" remains the big drama to watch, as even before it has started airing, the sequel to 2017's "Secret Forest" is in fifth place with 4.55% of social media references. With "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" and "Backstreet Rookie" having ended "Secret Forest 2" will almost certainly top the Good Data Report next week.
