Snowdrop Tops the List of Most Tweeted About K-dramas of 2022 Followed by Twenty Five, Twenty One and A Business Proposal

It’s one thing to get viewers which usually means there is online buzz but sometimes the two don’t align. The list of most tweeted about K-dramas of 2022 (so far) has underwhelming and low rated jTBC period romance Snowdrop as the most tweeted about show, which I attribute to worldwide K-pop superstar Jisoo who is a member of Blackpink and also taking on her first drama role. Maybe also add on hate tweets of Snowdrop for its distortion of history controversy. Coming in second is Twenty Five, Twenty One which is basically 95% great drama and 5% steaming pile of WTF is this ending drama and what I the viewer supposed to take away from it. Third spot goes to adorable surprise hit A Business Proposal which only had 12-episodes so being tweeted about this high competing with longer running 16 or even 20 episode dramas is quite a feat. After that it’s (in this order): All of Us are Dead, Our Beloved Summer, Semantic Error, Extraordinary Attorney Woo, The Red Sleeve Cuff, Our Blues, and the drama that will never die Squid Game which aired in 2021.
