Squid Game #1 in Netflix Shows in Terms of Total Hours Watched, Hometown Cha Cha Cha in 10th Place and Newly Premiered All of Us are Dead Hits 37th in One Week

Well this is an interesting tabulation of Netflix shows in terms of popularity. A new list is out through January 30, 2022 showing the cumulative hours watched of each Netflix show. I think it’s more accurate in some ways than number of people who clicked on it because some could watch and then drop it, whereas total hours means the most people who watched it all the way through. And maybe even re-watched! Topping the list is K-drama Squid Game, no surprise here, and the second K-drama on the top 100 is Hometown Cha Cha Cha in 10th so major props to that. My Name comes in 21st, above Hellbound at 29th, which is surprising because in the US market Hellbound got a lot more news coverage albeit mixed. Sageuk The King’s Affection takes 31st then it’s newcomer All of Us are Dead in 37th which I expect to keep rocketing up the list though unlikely to topple Squid Game. Cult favorite Our Beloved Summer lands in the 47th place then rather lackluster reception for the big name The Silent Sea in 53rd. Hospital Playlist 2 comes in at 60 followed by reality dating show Singles Inferno. And last but not lead Nevertheless makes the top 100 in the 71st spot, which makes two Han So Hee dramas on the top 100 so slow claps for her.
