Lovely Runner is racing to the top despite lacking a mainstream OTT platform launch. The tvN time-travel romance series has filled international audiences' hearts with warm memories and loving takeaways since its April 8 premiere.


Even though the series did not find a streaming space for global viewers to easily access on Netflix, Prime Video, or Disney Plus, the K-drama has proved its self-made worth to the world. For the second week in a row, Lovely Runner ranked atop the TV and TV-OTT popularity indexes of the Good Data Corporation's weekly chart, revealed on May 14.

Despite its slightly dipping topicality (63.25%—TV / 58.37%—TV-OTT) from last week's score (65.43%—TV / 60.52%—TV-OTT), the tvN sensation maintained its leading rank at the top of the table, securing a vast gap between its sky-high popularity scale and the subsequently trailing K-drama titles on the Top 10 chart.


Lovely Runner cast members Byeon Woo Seok, Kim Hye Yoon, and Song Geon Hee also occupied the top three ranks on the most popular actors of the week chart. JTBC's The Atypical Family soared to the No. 2 spot in the TV category, scoring a popularity scale of 6.99%, following Lovely Runner's exemplary position.
