Jirisan maintained its position as the most talked about Korean drama (most buzz) for three consecutive weeks.
Quoting Soompi, this data was obtained from Good Data Corporation, a company that collects various articles in mass media, blogs, online community talks, videos, and social media related to Korean drama content that is currently airing and will soon air.
While in 2nd place, there is The King’s Affection whose rating slipped slightly from the previous week, which was 7.2% from 7.8%. The One the Woman rose to third place welcoming the final episode. The latest drama Happiness immediately skyrocketed to the 4th position.
In 5th place, there was Young Lady and Gentleman who also rose to his position. This drama tells the relationship between a widower of three children in their 40s and a girl in her early 20s who becomes a mentor to her children.
This drama was once controversial because it featured scenes of the widower when he was 27 years old, meeting the girl when he was 13 years old, in a situation that was described as a romantic moment. This scene was even linked with the issue of pedophilia or disorders that make children as sexual objects.
Meanwhile, for the most talked about drama stars, the top three positions were dominated by actresses, namely Honey Lee who became the main character in One the Woman, followed by Park Eun-bin (The King’s Affection), and Go Hyun Jung (Reflection of You).
