According to Koreaboo, drama from cable channels receive lower viewer ratings compared to public channels like KBS, MBC, and SBS. This is because cable broadcasts aren’t as widely available to the public. From production value to storyline, to celebrity cast, “Goblin” has definitely raised the bar for cable dramas.
