K-Drama Ratings/Reviews

This rating system is based on the Dramabeans ratings format, hence the two numbers.  First, is my own personal taste (hehe) of how much I enjoyed the drama  whilst Gong Yoothe second number  is a more objective take on the quality overall. Out of 10 y’all.  Because my love for spreadsheets has no bounds,  I included rankings from other sites such as Dramabeans (DBR), other drama blogs (BR), and of course the ever so important netizen opinion (OPO).  All three are averaged in the following column.  Also, I included the number of episodes and whatever television ratings (% of viewership) I could find. Why? Cause why the hell not. Now, did I glean any information of significance doing things like gathering unnecessary data, creating multiple averages, forming pivot tables, and sorting through information?  Well apparently people really really like Answer me, 1997  (boom. mind exploded) and I obviously needed an outlet from all this built up  FIN 470 excel knowledge. Lesson learned. (Update: ones in Green are linked to a review/drama specific posts. Different shades correspond to types of posts.)
