Koreans Choose Their Top 10 Favorite TV Shows For January

A new survey by Gallup Korea has revealed which television programs Koreans are currently enjoying the most!

Gallup Korea recently conducted its monthly poll asking participants which television show airing in January 2019 that they “liked most.” JTBC’s hit drama “SKY Castle” emerged the favorite for the month, rising to the top of the rankings after taking sixth place in last month’s survey.

Not only did “SKY Castle” earn the highest percentage of votes for this month, but it also set a new record for the highest percentage of votes a drama has ever received in the history of the survey (which Gallup Korea first began in January 2013). The drama claimed an impressive 13 percent of the total votes, beating the previous record of 12.6 percent set by tvN’s “Goblin” in January 2017.

Only seven dramas—including both dramas airing on public broadcast networks and those airing on cable networks—have ever managed to garner a double-digit percentage of the total votes in Gallup Korea’s monthly survey. The exclusive list consists only of KBS 2TV’s “My Daughter Seo Young” (10.6 percent in January 2013, 12.2 percent in February 2013), SBS’s “My Love from the Star” (11.5 percent in February 2014), MBC’s “Empress Ki” (10.8 percent in March 2014, 11.8 percent in April 2014), MBC’s “Jang Bori is Here” (12.1 percent in September 2014), KBS 2TV’s “Descendants of the Sun” (12.3 percent in March 2016), tvN’s “Goblin,” and “SKY Castle.”

KBS 2TV’s hit drama “My Only One,” which surpassed 40 percent in viewership ratings earlier this month, took second place for January 2019, while MBC’s popular variety show “I Live Alone” came in third.
