In its final week on air "The King: Eternal Monarch" once again topped the Good Data Report measuring media engagement for various dramas. Much of the attention given to "The King: Eternal Monarch" was negative, particularly in regards to product placement, an issue that dogged the drama throughout its run. In recent weeks "The King: Eternal Monarch" also benefited from weak competition. Its lead actors were also talked about, with Lee Min-ho and Kim Go-eun in first and fourth place.
"Once Again" and "Kkondae Intern" maintained second and third place. "Once Again" has had particular success with its performers, with Lee Cho-hee and Lee Sang-yi-I in second and fifth place for performers respectively, though neither are credited with leading roles in the ensemble weekend drama. "Kkondae Intern" had more modest figures for performers with lead actor Park Hae-jin appearing at number eight.
The big news this week, though, was "It's Okay to Not Be Okay", a drama which has yet to air but has already been building enough buzz to rank number four in dramas. Social media fans appear excited for the upcoming return of Kim Soo-hyun and Seo Ye-ji, who rank at fifth and ninth place respectively on the list. With many new dramas coming up, "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" has already made a name for itself as the drama to be beaten, at least where hype is concerned.
