'Sky Castle' surpasses Reply 1988 ratings and becomes most watched cable drama in Korea

How do you like Sky Castle? Does it deserve the crown?

the writing as turned a little over dramatic but i blame the extension. still there are always great moments in each episode. i loved the seri v cha dad confrontation and the twins v dad confrontation in this weeks episodes.

also someone rescue yeh bin

hm well i wouldn't actually put it above "signal" and this also reminded me how underrated "dear my friends" was but considering the rest of this list - yes. jtbc is putting out a lot of great dramas lately so they deserve more acknowledgement.

Currently on episode 3. It’s pretty good so far. Also, Reply 1988 holds a special place in my heart even though it wasn’t the best. I really loved all the characters and friendships.

It’s sooooo good. I was totally surprised by how good it is.

Now when are we getting a signal season 2

signal is still my favorite out of this list. i've only managed to finish signal and the reply series because they were interesting enough for me to watch till the end lol. i zoned out of sky castle around the 7th episode. maybe i'll pick it back up again

I'm obsessed with this show.
It's so good, I don't even like korean dramas.
After Misty I didn't think I would like another korean drama.

so are these the dramas people recommend? I haven't watched a good one in a while and I don't want to get stuck with a dud.

I'll say it again. It's the best drama I've seen since Misaeng. I really hope the last 4 episodes are executed well because it will then surpass my holy Korean drama trinity of Misaeng / Signal / Reply 1997 as my fav.

I've watched 6 of the 8 dramas on the list. SKY Castle deserves top billing based on sheer entertainment + top notch acting by each cast member. Before, I would have given Signal the nod but hats off to the cast. Not one character is unforgettable or expendable.

I'm so happy this is doing so well! I finally was able to start it this week and so far it's great. The fact that it started with like 1% ratings and had such a crazy rise is awesome. Hoping to get caught up before the last episodes air.

The story is good, the actors are all amazing! I'm happy to know that this drama is getting the recognition it deserves.

Side note, Chani's character again becomes the scapegoat just like in "Signal". But I hope it has a different ending this time.

I seriously don’t get the love for Kim eun sook dramas, but yesssss for sky castle and jtbc! (I hate that no drama blogs covered woman of dignity because that was a bombass drama too)
