The MBC’s historical Kdrama is not giving the title anytime soon as Lee Se Young and 2PM Junho’s “The Red Sleeve Cuff” dominates the most buzzworthy drama and actor rankings.
For the 3rd week of December, the Friday and Saturday series topped Good Data Corporation’s latest rankings.
The weekly chart is based on the data collected from news articles, videos, social media posts, and online communities that generated the most popularity from currently airing or upcoming Kdramas.
