DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for March 30 to April 5, 2015
Park Yoo Chun's new romantic thriller, Sensory Couple, started last week. Did it make the Top 10 Most Watched Dramas? Is Blood continuing its winning streak? However, the biggest surprise is this: Who's at #3?
New romantic thriller Sensory Couple, starring Park Yoo Chun and Shin Se Kyung, started last week. Normally we only list the Top 10, but for Yoochun, one of my favorite rising male stars who's made a successful leap from K-pop singer, I'm going to reveal that Sensory Couple is sitting pretty at #11, a strong showing despite the Easter weekend. I really didn't know what to expect but decided to watch the first 2 episodes, and it's totally absorbing. Despite the sad back-story for the 2 leads, it moves forward quickly after establishing the basic premise. And it's got strong action, suspense, fun dialogues, and the special effects depicting the smells that the female lead sees are creative too. I don't want to give away too much since it's new; just know that I'm giving it my seal of approval.
Blood has kept its crown. Judging from the feedback to my article about Hot actors over 40 who are splendid like week-aged fine wine, many of you are watching it for Ji Jin Hee, who shines despite his villain role. If you are not into vampires or are just waiting for the "happy ending," check out our drama club's recaps HERE. Also, we are getting a real kiss scene for our leading couple this week.
To research materials for the Over-40 Hot Actors article, I also started watching Divorce Lawers, starring Wu Xiu Bo and Yao Chen. It is quite a change from Chinese historical dramas. It is fast paced and has a lot of hilarious and unexpected encounters. So, big mistake, I have to keep watching this fun drama now, especially for Wu Xiu Bo.
Shine or Go Crazy concludes its long-awaited ending this week. I can't wait. I'm concerned that this won't be a "happy ending" for the OTP, but it's been a great story with strong characters and performance. Last week's episodes had fantastic twists and turns. So I'll be watching with my fingers crossed.
In other news:
This weekend's movie is big-budget action thriller Viral Factor, starring Taiwanese singer-actor Jay Chou and Hong Kong superstar Nicholas Tse. The film has a lot of location shooting in Malaysia, China, Hong Kong, and the Middle East.
