The ongoing Korean drama My Demon is still going gangbusters on Netflix, with the world’s largest streaming platform reporting via its Tudum website that My Demon is now in their Top 10 for six weeks in a row.

That Top 10, of course, is the Netflix Top 10 Most-Watched Non-English TV Shows chart, with My Demon first hitting the chart at #4 for the week of November 20th to November 26th right after it premiered.

This week — the week of December 25th to December 31st, 2023 — My Demon is still on the chart, this time back at #4 after ranking in the #3 or #2 spot for the last four weeks.

According to Netflix via their Tudum website, My Demon earned 2.8 million views for the most recent week, with 27.7 million hours viewed.

Those numbers were possible as the Korean drama is in the Top 10 in 44 countries, including Argentina, Peru, Paraguay, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Romania, Nigeria, Hong Kong, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Japan, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia.

My Demon ratings in South Korea

The Song Kang-led drama is also airing on SBS in South Korea, with local ratings via Nielsen Korea showing solid audience numbers since it premiered on November 24th.

The drama took a week off the weekend of December 30th due to the SBS Drama Awards on the 30th, with SBS deciding they would also postpone the episode scheduled to air on December 29th until next weekend.

That means Episode 11 of the 16-episode Korean drama will air on January 5th instead.

My Demon stars Kim Yoo Jung, Song Kang, Lee Sang Yi, and Kim Hae Sook.

It airs on SBS TV in South Korea every Friday and Saturday evening at 22:00 (KST), with Netflix streaming it for its international audiences soon after, and has quickly become one of the most popular and most successful K-dramas of 2023.
