The ratings are in for the full run of Goblin in Taiwanese network television and audiences them have slurped up this different and tasty treat in record breaking numbers. The drama has become the highest rated K-drama aired on television in Taiwan, averaging 2.27% for its entire run, with the final episode hitting 5.5%. The remainder of the top rated K-dramas in Taiwan are a best of list of hit K-dramas in Korea over the last two decades with number 2 being Goong (Princess Hours) with 2.21% and Boys Before Flowers at 2.03%, making these top three K-dramas the only one to average over 2% ratings. Coffee Prince is 4th with 1.82%, My Name is Kim Sam Soon is 5th with 1.68%, let’s not forget Brilliant Legacy/Shining Inheritance at 6th place with 1.63%, You From Another Star only comes in 7th with 1.55%, 8th is Descendants of the Sun with 1.54%, and the final two are My Girl with 1.38% and Pasta at 1.30%.
The K-drama stars with two dramas in the top ten are Yoon Eun Hye in Goong and Coffee Prince, her Coffee Princes costar Gong Yoo who is the reigning champ with Goblin, and Lee Dong Wook with My Girl first and now Goblin. The one drama I’m surprised to see not on the list is Heirs since it was so popular all over Asia when it aired but I guessed it was popular just not enough to crack the top 10 list.
