Where will Was it Love? rank in the list of highest-rated cable television k-dramas?
There have been some truly excellent K-Dramas in recent years, so Was it Love? has plenty of competition to beat. In particular fellow jTBC drama, The World of the Married just recently claimed the top spot as the highest-rated cable television drama in South Korean history with a monstrous 28.371% rating.
One of the biggest factors working against Was it Love? is the mid-week slot. All of the top jTBC dramas have had the prime-time Friday and Saturday night slots.
The most successful jTBC drama outside of the Friday-Saturday slot is The Light in Your Eyes, which at the time writing is the 20th ranked cable television drama. Episodes of The Light in Your Eyes were broadcast episodes every Monday and Tuesday.
Was It Love? does have the chance to become one of the most successful mid-week dramas, but for now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
