Descendants of the Sun not only took the K-drama world by storm but Twitter as well. According to the social network’s annual year-end trends list, DOTS fever catapulted the drama to rank high on the TV show list at number four right behind Grey’s Anatomy.

DOTS being the only K-drama to make Twitter’s Top 10 Trending TV Show list, in the company of other big names like Games of Thrones (No. 1) and The Walking Dead (No. 2), further cements the series true worldwide popularity. Reportedly, the show has been sold to a whopping 32 countries.

Twitter is a great place to find out what’s hot right now, and when DOTS was airing, the show was on fire. During a short time period in the last month of its airing in April, Twitter designated a special emoji of the characters to appear when users used the hashtag #DescendantsOfTheSun, #YooSiJin, and #KangMoYeon.

Big congratulations to the show’s screenwriter, Kim Eun Sook. She is enjoying immense success and love from viewers in 2016. Currently, her new drama Goblin is smashing records. If the beautiful moving sound from the first OST released for Goblin by Punch and EXO’s Chanyeol keeps up, the soundtrack for the tvN drama will be just as stellar as DOTS.

Here is the full list for Twitter’s Top Trending TV Shows:

1. Game Of Thrones

2. The Walking Dead

3. Grey’s Anatomy

4. Descendants Of The Sun

5. Master Chef Brasil

6. Orange Is The New Black

7. Stranger Things

8. Empire

9. The Voice

10. Big Brother Brasil

Also, special shout-out to Brazil for their countries' inclusion of two shows on the list, Master Chef Brasil and Big Brother Brasil!
