DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for February 15, 2016
Some of our favorite dramas took a break due to lunar new year programming, but it may have been perfect timing for the international audience to catch up on our best romantic addiction to celebrate Valentine's. Were shows like Cheese in the Trap and Moorim School affected in the ratings? Which shows are in the new Top 10 Most Popular Shows?
Congratulations to Cheese in the Trap for keeping the #1 spot on our list. This drama is so hot that co-stars Park Hae Jin and Nam Joo Hyuk held a special free hug event, as promised when the drama's ratings reached a target milestone. Watch the video where you can see excited fans practically fling themselves at the stars for the precious hugs.
Remember is popular among international viewers, and it's even more popular in South Korea, having become one of the ratings leaders. As our embattled heroes finally move toward defeating the ruthless corporate evils, what will happen to Yoo Seung Ho and his touching romance with Park Min Young? (Did you see their sweet kiss?) Someone please give the righteous and handsome judge (Kim Jin Woo) a romantic role in the next drama. The story is so riveting that it's near impossible to guess the ending. I'm hoping for the best!
Madame Antoine's hilarity doesn't let up, as overly-confident psychologist Choi Soo Hyun (Sung Joon) becomes irresistibly attracted to fortune teller Go Hye Rim (Han Ye Seul). The scene where he goes "undercover" to stalk her is laugh-out-loud funny. No wonder this romcom drama has risen again in the ranking to #5.
A library romcom series, Witch's Romance, surged to #9 after its release on DramaFever. Park Seo Joon actually filmed this fun noona romance with Uhm Jung Hwa before he starred in Kill Me, Heal Me and She Was Pretty.
In other news:
Marry Me or Not? reached its happy ending with a surprise proposal scene, just in time for Valentine's. Best wishes to happy couple Roy Chiu and Alice Ke! The dialogues between the two characters, especially at the beginning of each episode, about the relationships between men and women, are really thoughtful and sophisticated.
The next new drama from Taiwan is Love or Spend, starring Kingone Wang and Hong Xiao Ling. Also in the drama is one of my favorite heartthrobs, Jolin Chien, for whom I had serious Second Male Lead Syndrome in Murphy's Law of Romance.

I'm watching Remember, Cheese in the Trap, Six Flying Dragons, Bromance, Madame Antoine, Signal, and Neighborhood Hero. As much as I like all the shows that I'm watching, Signal may actually be the best one. I cannot praise it enough for its ingenious plot and outstanding performances.
I'd love to hear from you! Please share your thoughts in the comments!
