2016 might have been a bad year (let’s not go into world politics), but if there’s a silver lining, it probably came in the form of Korean dramas.
Last year saw the broadcast of some of the biggest dramas that catapulted certain actors and actresses to massive fame. Yes, everyone’s fave oppas, Song Joongki, Park Bogum and Lee Minho included.
If you ask us, we’ll probably rank at least five dramas at the top spot, but figures – in this case, ratings – don’t lie. According to the ratings derived from Singapore Television Audience Measurement (SG-TAM), and combined ratings of channels ONE and Oh!K, it was found that Scarlet Heart was the most popular Korean drama in Singapore in the later half of 2016.
