Good Data Releases the Buzziest K-dramas in 2022 Per Network with the Longest Time on the #1 Spot Being tvN’s Twenty Five, Twenty One and ENA’s Extraordinary Attorney Woo

Terrestrial ratings are one thing but online buzz is different but also quite important metric in popularity and reach these days. Good Data released the buzziest K-dramas of 2022 per each network and showed how many weeks it spent in the #1 spot. Leading the way are Twenty Five, Twenty One on tvN and ENA‘s Extraordinary Attorney Woo, each spent 8 weeks in the top spot. Then comes Reborn Rich on jTBC with 6 weeks in the #1 spot, but I think this one has an asterisk since it only aired 6 weeks rather than the usual 8 for a 16-episode drama due to the network airing 3 episodes each weekend. MBC had Big Mouth which was #1 twice and #2 six times. And the trailer is A Business Proposal on SBS which was #2 four times during its run. KBS did well thanks to weekend drama Gentleman and Young Lady with being in the top five 12 weeks in a row. And an honorable mention goes to jTBC drama My Liberation Notes, even if its not the buzziest drama for that network it was #1 five times during its run.
