With the conclusion of Descendants of the Sun it’s a perfect time to check in with the popularity of K-dramas in China and see where this newest ratings breaker resides. Polling website Vlinkage just released the Top 30 Most Popular K-dramas in China list as of April 2016 and it’s rare for me to feel like this is one accurately reflective ranking. It doesn’t just include recent dramas but even oldies like Autumn in My Heart and Full House are on the list.

You From Another Star remains the most popular K-drama of all time in China followed closely by Heirs and rounded out with Descendants of the Sun in the top three. That makes two Kim Eun Sook penned dramas in the top three alone, and both Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye takes two spots in the top five as City Hunter came in fourth followed by Pinocchio.
