DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for August 25th to August 31st
Apparently it's time for old loves as a romance of exes leaps into the Weekly Top 10, and old favorites come back to rule the list. Or maybe we just wanted to relax and marathon for the long weekend? (It's quite alright; you can confess without feeling guilty because many of us binged a lot of dramas during the long weekend.)
Yes, Discovery of Romance has brought its ex-lovers to rediscover each other and into our hearts and the Top 10. And not to be left behind, the two princes of romance, Kim Soo Hyun and Lee Min Ho, won't let us forget that they are our first loves while their fabulous, iconic masterpieces make a comeback. (Didn't I say there must have been a lot of marathons going on during the weekend?)
However, It's Okay, That's Love has the #1 spot firmly in grasp, and the more the story unfolds, the more captivating it gets. It is truly a one of a kind drama that speaks to us on an ethereal but also candid level. So the big question is: When will Hye Soo (Gong Hyo Jin) find out her boyfriend sees and talks to an imaginary being? And an even more serious question, when will Jae Yeol (Jo In Sung) realize that he is delusional?
It's no surprise that Skip Beat rose even higher on the list. My not-so-secret confession is that I finished watching Skip Beat and repeated the last few episodes a few more times including the lovely kiss. I understand the ending seems too open, but it's because the manga was still ongoing at the time of filming, so they had to follow along the manga, but it was pretty clear that Gong Xi and Lian were falling for each other and would ultimately be together. Ivy Chen and Super Junior's Siwon and Donghae really brought their characters alive in this live-action manga adaptation. I also was impressed by the portrayal of true friendship between the two young women. I certainly hope there's a season 2 someday, or maybe a Korean remake?
I was wrong about The Joseon Gunman finishing last week, but the good news is that we get 2 more episodes of Lee Joon Ki, and hopefully a happy ending for our hero and heroine who truly deserve to live happily ever.
I'm going to wonder aloud here: I don't know why The Night Watchman's Journal isn't on the Top 10. I've been watching it every week and it's been a thrilling ride. As Prince Lee Rin (adorable Jung Il Woo) starts to connect the dots between his ghost-seeing ability and the night watchman responsibility he inherited, I'm sure there will be more adventures and, hopefully, good will vanquish evil. I'm also waiting for that 'sword-in-the-stone' moment when Lee Rin discovers he is the rightful one who can lift the heavenly arrow.
