Where will Record of Youth rank in the ratings?

tvN has continued its output of excellent dramas throughout 2020, some of which have entered the top 50 highest-rated cable dramas in South Korea.

While we suspect Record of Youth will do well in the ratings, the only thing going against it will be its Monday and Tuesday night slots. That being said, the highest performing tvN drama that aired on Mondays and Tuesdays is 100 Days My Prince, which at the time of writing is currently ranked 8th in the highest-rated cable dramas.

The most successful tvN dramas typically air between Friday and Sunday nights, so hopefully, Record of Youth can compete with most successful tvN dramas like Crash Landing on You and Reply1988.
