Jan 24,2019
“Memories of the Alhambra,” the tvN drama series, topped the weekly TV program chart in the final week of its 16-episode run, data showed Wednesday.

The Saturday-Sunday series, which aired its final episode on Jan. 20, earned a Content Power Index (CPI) score of 264.9 for the week of Jan. 14-20, finishing atop the index, according to the chart data released by CJ ENM and Nielsen Korea.

The drama starring Hyun Bin and Park Shin-hye is the first mainstream series dealing with augmented reality as its main subject. The drama is set in both Seoul and Granada, Spain, giving an edge to the show’s visual quality.

The CPI, created by CJ ENM and Nielsen Korea, measures the level of popularity, social media presence and influence of TV programs aired on the three major terrestrial networks - MBC, SBS and KBS - and the seven cable channels owned by CJ ENM, including tvN, Mnet and OCN, during prime time. Yonhap
