“Goblin” is crushing it in viewer ratings, climbing to third place on tvN’s all-time most-viewed drama rankings in just three episodes.
The third episode of “Goblin” aired on December 9 and scored ratings of 12.5 percent (Nielsen Korea, cable platform). This is much higher than the 7.9 percent ratings of the second episode and almost double the 6.3 percent ratings of the first episode.
This puts “Goblin” in third place on tvN’s all-time rankings, beating out popular dramas like “Incomplete Life” (8.2 percent), “Another Oh Hae Young” (10.0 percent), and “Reply 1994” (10.4 percent). The only dramas “Goblin” has yet to surpass are “Reply 1988” (18.8 percent) and “Signal” (12.5 percent).
“Goblin” was a hot topic from the start as it was slated as the drama that would bring back screenwriter Kim Eun Suk and director Lee Eung Bok, who worked on “Descendants of the Sun” together. “Goblin” is only in its third episode and if it continues on its current trajectory, there is a possibility that it will clinch the top spot on tvN’s all-time rankings by the final episode.
