DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for December 7, 2015
Don't you just love it when your favorite drama has finally moved into the Top 10? Find out which exciting dramas are on the new list. Also, does So Ji Sub look surprised or scared in this photo? Share what you think is more dreaded by a man: Losing his heart or losing his life?
(Proceed with caution: There are some spoilers in this article.)
Which close call is more dreaded by a man? One could enslave his heart; the other could take his life. What I know for sure is that both of my most favorite dramas are among the Top 10, even though they are on opposite ends of the list, practically a universe apart. What ties them together is that our unique group of DramaFever fans represents viewers with diverse interests and the appreciation for great Asian dramas such as the modern, eclectic Oh My Venus and the serious, intriguing Six Flying Dragons.
In Oh My Venus, So Ji Sub's John Kim has slowly but gradually been falling for Shin Min Ah's character, even though he wouldn't admit it openly. The cute dimple on Kang Joo Eun's face is like the last straw that broke the disciplined trainer's last resistance. Don't you all love that scene when he couldn't help but touch her dimple?

In Six Flying Dragons, so much happened last week. Remember the names of impressive actors Byun Yo Han and Park Hyuk Kwon because their spectacular sword-fighting scene that connects episodes 17 and 18 is beyond this world. The two characters, while symbolizing good versus evil in a bloody battle, ultimately fought as two warriors with competing thoughts that linger and stir long after the blood is shed and the stain is covered by the dust. Ruthless Gil Tae Min's reply about why he took from the weak still resonates in our modern age, where the gap between the wealthy and the poor is as wide as the ocean. With his death, the captivating historical drama will enter a new phase.
A new mini-romance has made a grand entry. Never Die has just started, and it is already climbing to near the Top 10. Ji Eun Sung (Shine or Go Crazy) falls in love with Nam Ji Hyun (Love Cells), a 200-year-old immortal who eternally looks only 20-years old. I had a short hour to spare last night, and it was just the perfect time for the very cute web drama.
