DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for June 15 to June 21, 2015
How do the highly anticipated endings in School 2015 and Producer affect our new Top 10 Most Watched Dramas? Were you surprised by Producer's secret ending? Do you agree with Eun Bi's choice? Did you catch the new Kim Bum in Hidden Identity? Let's find out!
First, I want to admit that I'm a fan of Kim Bum's new action thriller Hidden Identity. At first I was not sure I could continue when episode 1 started with a heartbreaking tragedy, but soon the drama geared up to hyper mode with its suspense and action. The actors showed off their various disguises while they undertook secret missions, reminding me of the popular British thriller MI-5 series (aka Spooks). As promised, the new Kim Bum is extremely impressive as a cop with a sad backstory who is now thrust into a covert operation. A wonderful surprise is Kim Min Joon playing a villain. I know he's a bad guy here, but he won my heart ever since Ha Ji Won's Damo, and I'm always fascinated by his onscreen presence.
You all know I've been on the Cindy Team ever since the Umbrella Couple met, so I was a bit concerned with the secrecy surrounding Producer's ending. Perhaps the Scriptwriter Goddess heard the fans, or perhaps it was intended all along, but I think it is a satisfying ending regardless of which team you've been on. It explains why Producer reached a high rating even in South Korea, and here it rose to #3 just after School 2015 and EXO Next Door.
The ending for School 2015 is more controversial and has caused a stir among the fans. I would agree with them too. Ultimately, this drama is about teenagers, and they have a big wide future ahead of them. Things can still change, just like one of the leads said. This drama has been a delight to watch, and I'm sure all the young actors will continue on to a prolific acting career.
My Love Eun Dong, the new romance drama starring Kim Sa Rang (Secret Garden) and Joo Jin Mo (movie 200 Pounds Beauty), has risen to #8. It is on my next to-watch list. Have you started? How do you like it so far?
