How well will Hello, Me! do in the ratings?
Unlike the majority of other K-Dramas Netflix receives, Hello, Me! is not on a cable network, and is instead on the South Korean public broadcaster KBS2.
With the rise of various new means of entertainment such as cable television, dramas on public television have struggled in recent years to make a dramatic impact. The current top 20 publicly broadcast K-Dramas pre-date 2005.
The last publicly broadcast K-Drama to make the top 50 was My Only One, which was released in March 2019. It is currently ranked at 29 in the list with a Nielson rating of 49.4%.
Hello, Me! has every chance to make the top 50, but it will require the series to exceed a rating of 44.9%. This means it will require almost half of the entire South Korean population to watch the drama when it is broadcasted.
