DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for August 18th to August 24th
A top audience favorite has finally dropped off, but it's really not a surprise because we've had a flurry of new and great shows to watch. Romance, comedy, thriller, mystery, historical, love triangles... you name it, we've got it.
The more I watch It's Okay, That's Love, the more I'm impressed by the writer's ability to portray and interweave these characters who are each imperfect but are not unlike each of us as we live our lives and seek happiness in our own way. The romance between Hye Soo (Gong Hyo Jin) and Jae Yeol (Jo In Sung) is also done with sensitivity. I really enjoyed their beach scene, but at the same time, I felt like a voyeur listening to their quiet and intimate dialogues. I'm also glad to hear Hye Soo say she was going to refer Jae Yeol to another doctor for treatment because they are dating. The synopsis seems to suggest that they met first as doctor and patient, and so far we know, they started out as roommates and haven't been in a doctor-patient relationship. I guess this shows how much I care about the characters that I don't want any blemish on their relationship.
I'm going to reserve a marathon night for The Joseon Gunman because I need to catch up on the last 2 episodes plus the final episodes to come this week. This has been a great swashbuckling plus gun-slinging thriller and romance from Lee Joon Ki, who has shown us once again how historical action is done. Loved him in Arang and the Magistrate. Now I hope he stays alive. Let's not get a 'born again to be happy' happy ending.
Fall In Love With Me has finished with a happy ending. I would have to say it is a very unusual happy ending. It's almost like going to a Chinese restaurant and ordering the special 'Happy Family' where you get everything. Yes, everyone had a happy ending, while I was ready to send Huan Huan to the mental ward in episode 19.
In other news:
Say I Do Again, a brand new Taiwanese drama series, starts today. It stars Wei Man (Mandy Wei) and Lin Yo Xi who play a couple who divorced after a quick wedding and now can't stand each other when they meet again. Of course it's going to be a romance comedy!

So glad to see Skip Beat maintaining its popularity as it's the one show that I watch as soon as a new episode comes out. It helps that each episode is only 45 minutes and makes it very easy to watch and cheer for Gong Xi, our heroine played by cute actress Ivy Chen. As a matter of fact, I see that episode 18 is out and I can't wait to watch it as soon as I file this report.
