How well will Sisyphus: The Myth do in the K-Drama ratings?
Out of the top ten highest-rated cable television dramas, jTBC currently occupies three spots, including the top two. It must be noted that the highest performing cable dramas aired episodes in the highly coveted Friday and Saturday timeslot.
As Sisyphus: The Myth is airing on Wednesdays and Thursdays, the K-Drama may struggle to make an impact upon the top 50. Regardless, we’re still expecting good ratings from the K-Drama but we’re not expecting to see the series make it into the top ten of highest rated cable dramas.
