Smart Media Rep (SMR), which distributes short clips of episodes from major broadcasters to online platforms such as Naver and YouTube, announced that clips from "The World of the Married" topped the drama list by surpassing 230 million views compared to clips from other local dramas aired in Korea from Jan. 1 to July 7.
 
Based on the BBC TV series “Doctor Foster,” which was aired in 2015 and 2017, "The World of the Married" gained popularity in the local market for its fast-paced and suspenseful storytelling.
