DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for December 15 to December 21, 2014
Guess which newcomer made it to the new Top 10! I'll also share what I found on Healer within the first 3 minutes. How about you? Which shows are your favorite now? And are you giving up anything important to watch your favorite shows in dramaland?
I already have 4 dramas on my regular slate, but I just had to take a peek at Healer. It does not disappoint. Starring Ji Chang Wook and Park Min Young, it's City Hunter with an intricate family backstory but without the overwhelming national tragedy, from what I see so far. But here's the real draw if you want a quick hook; consider it as my fan service to you:
Within 3 minutes, Ji Chang Wook shows us his abs!
I also really enjoyed Ji Chang Wook's interaction with the "Ajumma," who is the intermediary for his assignments and his eyes and ears for the hi-tech controls. It reminds me of John Cusack and Joan Cusack in one of my all-time favorite movies, Grosse Pointe Blank, but I don't think Ji is an assassin here. He seems to take on jobs just so that he can move to his dream island. (Well, sign me up for an island vacation.)
Another hot guy is the hotshot TV reporter played by Yoo Ji Tae. He really gives the necessary depth and dimension to Healer, or it would just be an ordinary action drama.
All my favorite shows, Birth of a Beauty, Pinocchio, and The King's Face have entered that middle, pivotal point where the leads often get hit by tragedy or disappointments. I believe at least 2 of these shows will lead to a "Happy Ending," but my heart is with Seo In Guk, who had to make a really tough decision. Thank goodness for Birth of a Beauty for always injecting humor and comic relief to help us breathe again. Joo Sang Wook is my new love, and you can get up close and personal with him HERE.
In other news:
Blade of Kings is the movie for this week. The headline says it stars Jackie Chan, but his son, Jaycee Chan, makes his debut in this movie too. With all the news about Jaycee's offense in China, it would be interesting to watch this movie where father and son acted together, when in real life Jackie hasn't been able to see Jaycee since August this year. If you are a Premium member, you get to watch it as early as Wednesday. Sign up HERE to be alerted when it's ready for you.
