Some comments from netizens:[+69, -27] Didn’t “Nevertheless” do well though? Its ranking on Netflix was very high. It must be because of the age restriction and late broadcasting time. Han So-hee became a hot topic as well. [+54, -4] 1. People watched them on Netflix. 2. People watched them on YouTube [+42, -8] Live On was fun [+20, -0] Wasn’t “Live On” a web drama? [+18, -4] “Nevertheless” was continuously on Netflix’s TOP10 drama list, so we can’t judge it on its ratings.
