K-Dramas has already had exceptional years in 2019 and 2020, as evidenced by its growing popularity outside South Korea and the numerous series that continue to break broadcast records.
Currently, tvN occupies seven of the top ten lists of highest-rated cable TV K-Dramas. To break the top ten It’s Okay to Not Be Okay will need to exceed a rating of over 12.55%, which would beat fellow tvN drama Signal.
It’s highly unlikely that the series will break The World of the Married series unparalleled rating of 28.371%. To put it into perspective, that would be like having almost 94 million of the US population tuning in to watch the finale, which hasn’t been seen since the M*A*S*H finale in 1983 and typically only seen every year for the Superbowl.
