Though statistics gives us idea of what series Koreans love to watch last year, we still can’t rely on this 2006 summary of ratings. We still must consider other details like competing program, Korean stars, type of audience it appeals to, and the period the TV series was aired. Why did I say this? Because I haven’t seen Which Star are you From?, Love Truly, and Vineyard Man on the Average Ratings Summary. even on the peak ratings. Oh, well.
To see the complete list of Peak and Summary ratings from Twitch click here. Don’t forget browsing up to to the bottom page of this link because you might find interesting infos from the dramas you already watched or planning to watch like links to official websites, photo galleries, and wallpapers.
