Last week the Good Data Corporation released figures for the first week of December as to which dramas were attracting the most interest on social media. The data, which was compiled from November 30th to December 6th, showed that "The Penthouse" was the highest performing drama for the second straight week, with 24.15% of all observed media commenting on the drama. Eugene was second place for performers, with Kim So-yeon in seventh place and Yoon Jong-hoon in ninth place.
"Tale of the Nine Tailed" was second place in its final week with 17.13%. "Tale of the Nine Tailed" also did exceptionally well with performers. Lee Dong-wook was number one, Kim Beom number three, and Jo Bo-ah number five. "Start Up" did not do so well in its final week, swapping places with "Tale of the Nine Tailed" to hit a week third place with 12.46% despite this also being the final week for that drama. Bae Suzy was number four for performers, Nam Joo-hyuk seven, and Kim Seon-ho eight.
"The Uncanny Counter" improved to fourth place with 7.52% of respondents, advancing two spots compared to last week. "Cheat On Me, If You Can" opened in sixth place, while "Awaken" was eighth place. "True Beauty" had the noteworthy distinction of making its first appearance in seventh place, despite the fact that the drama only started airing on December 7th, right after the completion of the current survey period.
