It’s a useful date to check in on Flixpatrol to see if any K-dramas are currently tracking on the Top 100 TV shows streaming on Netflix for the year ranking. The highest spot goes to It’s Okay to Not be Okay coming in at 10th, so the drama has a chance to perhaps crack the top 20 for the full year come December 31. Second spot among the K-dramas is The King: Eternal Monarch in 21 and then a big drop before Crash Landing on You is spotted in 44th place.
