Mr. Sunshine Remains Top of the Final Average Ratings for Cable Dramas in 2018 Followed by Sky Castle


The final average ratings are out tabulating the entire run of each cable K-drama that premiered in 2018. It was fun ride actually, I watched almost all on the top 10 list and even ones I didn’t it was fun to peer in on the hype and excitement. After the wild rise of jTBC end of the year drama Sky Castle I thought it would be the top dog on the average ratings poll but it just fell short. tvN‘s Mr. Sunshine retains the number 1 average rated cable drama of 2019 position with 12.955% followed by Sky Castle with 12.500%. I think Sky Castle’s close second is way more impressive since it didn’t have the budget, hype, or big name cast and production as Mr. Sunshine. In third place is sageuk Dear Husband of 100 Days, followed by Encounter (Boyfriend), and then Memories of Alhambra in fifth place. Check out the top list below!
