DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for February 2 to February 8, 2015
Guess who stays on top in the new Weekly Top 10 Most Watched Dramas? A new romance comedy enters the Top 10. Find out more about why this is such an exciting week.
I'm not going to be Public Enemy #1, so... Yes, it's Healer that keeps its crown on the new Top 10 list! Despite the good news, I'm also feeling a tinge of sadness that we'll be saying goodbye to this wonderful show this week. Although I believe there will be a happy ending, I think there will also be a heart-breaking sacrifice. Needless to say, I can't wait to watch the new episodes. How about you?
In Hyde, Jekyll, and I, the aloof Seo Jin (Hyun Bin) makes progress to become a more likable person (and looking cuter) when he is either consciously or subconsciously growing to care for Ha Na (Han Ji Min.) However, in that process, he is cheating his alter ego Robin out of a fair fight. So, how do you resolve a love triangle when it's you against you? The soju-chugging scene where Seo Jin pretends to be Robin is so fun! The other multiple-personality drama, Kill Me, Heal Me, is getting into more dangers as the nice Ji Sung is being clobbered by the evil, the goofy, the suicidal, and more-to-come personas of himself. I'm so glad I'm watching videos on demand so that I can replay key scenes, especially when the incredible Ji Sung makes his transformations, including in the middle of kissing.
Have you noticed we have 3 historical dramas in the Top 10? This is quite amazing, but it also shows the high quality and the diverse types of the historical genre. I've been extolling Seo In Guk's performance in The King's Face, but really the entire cast and the production team have made this a grand historical journey. I learned more about Korean history in addition to seeing the rise of a new leading man who is adept in both modern and historical dramas. I wish it had stayed to the original 24 episodes so the ending doesn't seem rushed. Actually, I think there's enough material for 30 episodes (so I could watch more of Seo In Guk), but I think the decision-makers gave in to the ratings.
It has been unfortunate for TV viewers in Korea that all three awesome dramas, The King's Face, Hyde, Jekyll, and I, and Kill Me, Heal Me broadcast in the same time slot in the same evenings, but lucky for us DramaFever fans, we can watch anytime and anywhere we wish, day or night. Do you blame K-dramas for not getting enough sleep?
