DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for August 17, 2015
Battle between the ghost and the doctor! Does Oh My Ghostess stay on #1 on our Top 10 list when Yong Pal already rose to #3 in all-time top ratings for 2015 in Korea? Is your favorite drama on the new Top 10 list?
Congratulations to Oh My Ghostess for keeping her throne despite serious threat from Yong Pal, which surged from no place last week to #6. It's amazing when Kim Tae Hee hasn't even gotten off her hospital bed yet.
I can't give enough praise to Yong Pal's perfect blend of thrilling suspense, action, and romantic intrigue. In the latest episodes, it even gives a social message about how the top 0.1% of the top 1% gets away with privilege especially during a disaster, giving us a chance to love Dr. Kim Tae Hyun (my love Joo Won) even more as our new superhero saves the day. If you haven't watched the show, I don't want to give too much away as the show is still early in the game.
In the meantime, I love that misunderstandings and confusion are being sorted out, although not without heartaches and chills, in Oh My Ghostess. The happy ending is near though. Stay tuned.
The Time I Loved You will reach its happy ending on Monday. How do we know? It's because the original Taiwanese In Time With You had a happy ending, so it's a good bet that we'll get a fine ending for Ha Ji Won and Lee Jin Wook. (Her pianist boyfriend never really had a chance.) The question is, how happy will the ending be? Will we see a proposal and a wedding? Or even a honeymoon? That'd be fun!
In other news:
New Korean drama The Virtual Bride starts on Tuesday, August 18. I love the premise about an idol star (Kim Da Som) who clashes with her co-star (Go Doo Shim), who is actually her off-screen boyfriend's mother. It's just the lighthearted show to cheer our mood for the rest of summer.
We have another double movie night this weekend:
The Warring States is a big Chinese historical movie about true life characters engaged in conspiracies and battles during the period called "The Warring States" about 2,500 years ago when China wasn't the one nation of China yet. Watch for beautiful Korean actress Kim Hee Sun of Faith playing a key role.
By the way, did anyone watch the movie I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK? The director didn't forget to give fan service because there's a shirtless Rain scene in the movie, thanks to our hawk-eyed and giggling movie fans reminding us about this indispensable scene.
Here are last week's Weekly Top 10 shows in order of popularity:
1. Oh My Ghostess (exclusive)
2. Running Man
3. The Time That I Loved You, 7000 Days (aka The Time I Loved You)
4. Heirs (exclusive)
6. Yong Pal
10. School 2015
The only historical costumed drama on the Top-10 list, Scholar Who Walks the Night, may actually be the most romantic in those scenes between Lee Joon Ki and Lee Yoo Bi. But Lee Yoo Bi has great chemistry with the crown prince (Changmin) too.
For Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk fans, your favorite drama Pinocchio has been hovering just outside the Top 10. What do you think about Park Shin Hye and Super Junior's Donghae in a romantic commercial taking place on Jeju Island?
