tvN’s “Goblin” Surpasses “Descendants Of The Sun” To Become Most Watched On Demand Drama By Far
tvN’s hit drama “Goblin,” which ended its 16-episode run in January of this year, has become the most watched Korean drama through VOD (video on demand).
Before “Goblin,” the record for the most watched drama through VOD was set by KBS 2TV’s “Descendants of the Sun” and tvN’s “Reply 1988”; however, “Goblin” easily swept past these two dramas to break the record.
“Reply 1988” brought in a total of about 300 million won (approximately $270,000) per episode and about 7 billion won (approximately $6.2 million) total. While the VOD revenue for “Descendants of the Sun” was not released, a source from KBS revealed that it was similar to that of “Reply 1988.” tvN’s “Goblin,” on the other hand, brought in almost 900 million won (approximately $800,000) per episode, easily surpassing the other two dramas.
