Meanwhile, another beloved Oppa rose to the monthly ranking as Jo Jung Suk landed second place. 

According to the organization, the 40-year-old star garnered a brand reputation index of 4,461,798. 

His ranking is due to the overwhelming achievement of the top rating medical K-drama "Hospital Playlist 2."

Unfortunately, the tvN series wrapped up on September 16 but managed to leave an achievement with soaring viewership ratings and not to mention trending topics on social media. 

Apart from Jo Jung Suk, his fellow 99er also made it to the last, landing tenth place for Jung Kyung Ho, followed by Kim Dae Myung and Yoo Yeon Seok. 

Jeon Mi Do, who portrayed Chae Song Hwa and Jo Jung Suk's on-screen partner, sits at the top 5.
