DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for April 6 to April 12, 2015
We've been waiting a long time, but finally Lee Min Ho's Gangnam Blues is coming to DramaFever fans this weekend. Also, there is a new entry into the coveted top 3 ranks in the Top 10 Most Watched Dramas. Did you like the unconventional kiss scene in Blood? All this and more...
Last week I said I was excited about the new Sensory Couple, starring Park Yoo Chun and Shin Se Kyung. The unique drama has proved to be an audience favorite as its perfect blend of action, mystery and romance has propelled it from #11 last week to #3 this week! Catch up on recaps HERE.
Blood's first kiss between Ahn Jae Hyun and Gu Hye Sun finally took place in episode 16. It's unconventional as it arrived later than the usual "formula." However, I believe it makes sense given the disparate background (and body temperatures) between the two characters. When the kiss arrived, it proved to be tender and lovely. Others must agree too, as Blood kept its crown at the top. Reportedly it took our leading couple 3 hours to film this special scene.
Shine or Go Crazy concluded last week. I think the ending is open to interpretation, but overall, it's been a great historical drama with strong characters and a great performance by the entire cast. Although I'm in love with the handsome royals, I've decided to catch up on modern romances. (By my last count, I was actively watching 7 dramas. How about you?)
Falling in Love with Soon Jung has attractive and likable actors that I've not seen before, and I really enjoyed the first 2 episodes. It's a keeper for my weekly must-watch list. Coincidentally, Someone Like You has mentioned "cellular memory," so keep that in mind as the word of the day. Check out the hilarious Falling in Love with Soon Jung recap HERE.
In other news:
My Unfortunate Boyfriend's premise sounds like an odd couple in love. How fun! Starring No Min Woo (Full House Take 2) and Yang Jin Sung (Bride of the Century,) the new romance comedy starts Monday, April 13.
Hwajung, a new historical drama about Prince Gwanghae's struggle for the crown will start on Tuesday, April 14. It stars the indomitable and charismatic Cha Seung Won and beautiful Lee Yeon Hee. (Judging from the pre-release photos, I'm going to have to add Cha to the sequel to the handsome royals article.)
Gangnam Blues is coming this Friday for DramaFever Premium members in the United States and Canada! If you haven't upgraded to premium, this is the time to get it and watch Lee Min Ho and Kim Rae Won in a powerful and gritty drama about Seoul in the 1970s.
