DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for August 24, 2015
Who will be #1 in the new Top 10 Most Watched Shows? While Oh My Ghostess and The Time I Loved You both reached happy endings, Yong Pal gave us a breathtaking cliffhanger. Which drama do you think should be the winner?
OMG, it's Oh My Ghostess winning the crown again! Don't you just love the ending? If there is anyone who is still waiting on the sidelines, you can start a delicious binge. Without giving out spoilers, let's just all agree that Park Bo Young's acting is fantastic in that she actually played 3 roles: Before, During, and After she was possessed by our favorite ghost. Ep. 16 also had one of the cutest hot stars, Seo In Guk, playing a new chef with a swagger.
Although The Time I Loved You's happy ending comes to no surprise to those of us who are familiar with the original Taiwanese hit In Time With You, what's been a surprise is how different the Korean script has changed with the support characters and the side romances. Even the happy ending has a lot more surprises, including a very beautiful wedding and more kisses. (You've got to check out Ha Ji Won's lovely bridal gown!)
I have a feeling that Yong Pal fans (including myself) are on pins and needles after the most recent episode. I hope Dr. Kim Tae Hyun (my love Joo Won) will find a solution really soon, but he looks so tired after working tirelessly. It's no wonder the show has zoomed to 20-plus ratings in Korea, and I truly believe this show will make it to #1 soon.
In other news:
New fun drama Twenty Again starts on Friday, August 28. Aside from Choi Ji Woo as the mom who goes to college alongside her son, we'll also see the man with the best looking dimples, Lee Sang Yoon, playing her first love. Needless to say, I can't wait!
Two other masterpieces from British period dramas are landing here on DramaFever on Friday, August 28. Cranford stars Oscar winner Judi Dench and is adapted from author Elizabeth Gaskell's lovely novels about village life encountering unexpected changes.
Emma stars Romola Garai as the unusual heroine of whom the author Jane Austen said "... no one but myself will much like." Johnny Lee Miller is Mr. Knightley. I have watched this series a few times, and it is thoroughly enjoyable.
The weekend feature is the award-winning movie Let the Bullets Fly, starring Jiang Wen (In the Heat of the Sun,) Chow Yun Fat (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,) and Ge You (If You Are The One.) It's a Chinese period drama that contains intrigue but also hilarious mistaken identity and satire.
