DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for May 4 to May 10, 2015
Wow, we have a big change in the new Top 10 Most Watched Dramas. I was off for 2 weeks, and this change is particularly dramatic for me. Check out where Sensory Couple and School 2015 have made their moves. Being a drama addict when traveling can be quite challenging. How about you? Which dramas will you miss when you take time off during the summer?
It's probably to no one's surprise that Sensory Couple has snagged the official #1 spot from the extremely popular Blood. Park Yoo Chun and Shin Se Kyung have had fun skinship and romantic kisses early and often instead of making us wait senselessly. Nam Goong Min may have found his true calling as a villainous master chef who can't tell who you are (lucky for you) by looking at your face. Read HERE (and see his abs) where Nam Goong Min laments that he has no love lines as a villain. Well, if his character wasn't a killer, fans could easily fall insanely hard for him. Still, when he looks up with that killer smile...
School 2015 has been pushed by the very cute Kim So Hyun and Nam Joo Hyuk to be the second most popular drama. Will it even surpass Sensory Couple? I love the premise of a mean girl waking up to amnesia and wanting to right her previous wrongs.
After leaping into the Top 10 last week, Drunken to Love You has stayed in our most popular list. Are you watching it yet? I'm thinking about it, but there are some other Taiwanese hot dramas that I'd like to try too, such as Be With You starring Bobby Dou, Huang Pei Jia, and Vivi Lee. The drama tells the adventures in love for three siblings who are between 20 and 30 years old. Check out Nylon Chen, a rising star who is also a popular singer. True to the romantic theme, the Chinese title for Be With You is actually "I really want to fall in love" for the new on-air drama, which has already leaped into Taiwan's current Top 10 ranking.
Although I love the women and the men in the inspirational Unkind Women, I'm glad the show is ending this week because I really have to make room for some highly anticipated dramas to come. My hope is that Song Jae Rim gets the girl and the bad teacher gets her just punishment. Read on...
In other news:
In case you didn't know, new drama Producer starring Kim Soo Hyun, IU, Cha Tae Hyun and Gong Hyo Jin is ready to start soon, very soon. This Friday, May 15, to be exact. This is Kim Soo Hyun's first drama after his megahit My Love from Another Star and the same screenwriter wrote the new drama. Be sure to sign up for episode alerts HERE and watch the first teaser HERE.
And then there is the hot romance taking place on Jeju Island between Yoo Yun Suk and Kang So Ra in Jeju Island Gatsby, starting Wednesday, May 13. I can't wait to see Kang So Ra. She was so impressive in Doctor Stranger and gave us the "Second Female Lead Syndrome," where many fans would have preferred that she got the guy. Read 9 more reasons to watch her and sign up for episode alerts HERE.
In Sound of the Dessert, a new Chinese romance set in the Han dynasty, Cecilia Liu gets to choose between two handsome guys, Eddie Peng and Hu Ge. It's about time we see more Chinese hunks show up on DramaFever. I'm looking forward to this show, which is starting Tuesday, May 12. The drama is based on a popular novel and was just released in 2014. Sign up for episode alerts HERE.
