Does Goblin continue to lead in face of strong competition? Are viewers picking up new dramas or old favorites? Is your favorite drama among our most popular Korean and other Asian dramas? Let's find out.

Goblin: The Lonely and Great God keeps its crown! The fascinating drama also broke ratings record again in South Korea, as Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook's backstory from a thousand years ago is further revealed.

Have you heard of the 3 R? Our top-10 list is dominated by romance, romance, and romance! Of course these romances have their differences, but they all have a compelling story to tell. Even #2 Running Man is full of romance in the air, when a fortuneteller says Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook are 85 to 90% compatible, leading to speculation of a new Monday couple.

Doctor Romantic has moved back up to #5 as the intensity in and outside of the ER continues to rise, and it's only slightly behind previous leaders #3 The Princess Weiyoung and #4 Cinderella and Four Knights.

Stay With Me is also higher at #6, having reached its very happy ending with a surprise wedding for one of the romantic couples. Do you think the leading couple Chen Qiao-En and Wang Kai are dating in real life, as hoped by the Chinese fans? Chen Qiao-En says she is too busy to date, and you can already see her searching for treasures in new mystery thriller Candle in the Tomb

Delightful campus romance Love O2O (and Yang Yang) also returns to the Top 10, followed by #8 Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, #9 Cheese in the Trap, and #10 Boys Over Flowers
