Doctor Slump on Netflix Top 10 for 5th week – K-drama performing well in Korea too

According to the Netflix Tudum website, the ongoing Korean drama Doctor Slump is on the Netflix Top 10 Non-English TV Shows chart for the 5th week in a row.

This time in the #6 spot.

The medical-themed drama’s latest appearance on the Top 10 chart was due to it being viewed 2  million times, for a total number of hours viewed of more than 16.5 million, during the period of February 19th to February 25th, 2024.

That placed it ahead of other non-English shows Alpha Males (#7), Wrong Side of the Tracks (#8), Luz: The Light of the Heart (#9) and Good Morning Veronica at #10.

Not bad to say Doctor Slump premiered on the streaming platform during the January 22nd to January 28th period in the #9 spot after only being available to watch on Netflix for two days, and with only two episodes released.

It has remained on the Netflix chart ever since.

During the most recent period we have data for, Doctor Slump was also in the Top 10 in 24 countries, primarily in Asia.

Doctor Slump ratings in Korea

Meanwhile, the Park Hyung Sik and Park Shin Hye-led K-drama continues to perform extremely well in its home country of South Korea.

The JTBC drama grabbed its highest ever ratings for its latest episode, with Episode 10 earning 8.17 percent of the nationwide viewership.

In Seoul, the drama performed even better, garnering 9.77 percent of the audience share.

The next episode of Doctor Slump to air both in South Korea and to stream on Netflix will be Episode 11, which is due to premiere on March 2nd.
