[HanCinema's News] "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" Tops Good Data Report for Sixth Straight Week
By William Schwartz | Published on
The latest iteration of the Good Data Report once again had "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" in the top spot for dramas discussed on social media. "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" had a commanding 35.32% of all references to currently airing dramas on social media. This compares to a very slightly higher percentage of 35.46% from the previous week.
For performers Kim Soo-hyun was number one for his third straight week. Seo Ye-ji was second place for performers, also for her third straight week. And Oh Jung-se, who plays the autistic older brother of Kim Soo-hyun's character, was in third place for the second straight week. This is in spite of his being an older, and not particularly well-known performer compared to his more famous younger co-stars.
"Once Again" was in second place for dramas, a position it has held for eight weeks. This carried over as the previous number one drama, "The King: Eternal Monarch", ended the week before "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" began. The weekend family drama like "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" has had steady numbers, increasingly slightly from 15.69% the previous week to 16.31% this week.
"Once Again" performers also make up the entire bottom half of the top ten for performers. Jo Mi-ryung was number six, lead actress Lee Min-jung number seven, Lee Sang-yeob number eight, Lee Sang-yi number nine, and Lee Cho-hee number ten. "Backstreet Rookie" was third place for dramas, also in its sixth straight week, with lead actors Kim Yoo-jung and Ji Chang-wook number four and five respectively for performers.
