Can It’s Okay to Not be Okay break into the top 10 K-Dramas?
2019 and 2020 have already been exceptional years for K-Dramas, as showcased by the growing popularity of the genre outside of South Korea, and the number of series continuously breaking broadcast records.
tvN currently occupies seven out of the top ten list of the highest-rated cable television K-Dramas of all time. To break the top ten It’s Okay to Not Be Okay will need to exceed a rating of over 12.55%, which would beat fellow tvN drama Signal.
It’s highly unlikely that the series will break The World of the Married series unparalleled rating of 28.371%. To put it into perspective, that would be like having almost 94 million of the US population tuning in to watch the finale, which hasn’t been seen since the M*A*S*H finale in 1983 and typically only seen every year for the Superbowl.
