DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for November 2, 2015
Did you have a fun Halloween weekend? Now let's see if you are happy or surprised with the new Top 10 Most Watched Shows on DramaFever! Will it be last week's winner Love & Secret or fast-rising Cheer Up!? A new drama also jumped into the Top 10 with no hesitation!
(In case you didn't know, the cover photo is from last weekend's hit movie, Spellbound. More on the movie later.)
New drama Bubblegum is incredibly enriching as it leads you on a mesmerizing journey through a colorful palette. No wonder it has leaped into the #9 spot in its debut. The landscape inhabited by Ri Hwan(Lee Dong Wook), Haeng Ah (Jung Ryeo Won), Seok Jun (Lee Jong Hyuk), and Yi Seul (Park Hee Bon) is like a puzzle of 10,000 pieces as we gradually piece them together to see how they interact in the present, with brief flashbacks as hints for the future. Although its initial synopsis emphasizes two friends who'll find love with each other, I believe the drama is more about layered relationships in our complex modern world where individuals appear to be open and connected socially while keeping a hidden secret. There is definitely a lot to chew on with our venturesome club.
For the players in She Was Pretty, a secret is no longer hidden as truth is revealed. I love this drama so much that I'm almost dreading the finale. So many promising dramas have been hurt by a lackluster ending due to extensions that I'm glad this wonderfully romantic drama isn't being extended (yet) and continues to warm our souls like Ji Sung's chicken soup. No wonder it has continued its rise to #3.
Congratulations to Love & Secret for keeping the crown. I can't believe that I'm up to episodes 61 through 70. We are at the stage where people, good or bad, are living with consequences of their previous decisions or actions. By the way, did you know it takes 2 babies to play Tiffany?
Even though Halloween is over, I highly recommend the movie Spellbound. Leave it to Korea to turn a horror-genre movie into a fantasy with an unexpected romance. I'm also adding Lee Min Ki into my secret harem for the way he expressed fearless love for ghost-seeing Son Ye Jin.
Six Flying Dragons has become our viewers' favorite historical drama and is hovering at #11. It is a drama that combines historical and fictional figures. It's a real test of the writer's prowess to make a convincing fresh interpretation of history that occurred many hundreds of years ago, and an amazing feat of the cast and production team to keep 21st-century viewers glued to the screen. Yoo Kyoon Sang (Pinocchio) is also giving us a comedic turn as Moo Hyul, the gentle giant on his way to become a great swordsman.
In other news:
Oh my! Roy Chiu and Alice Ke reunite in Marry Me or Not? starting Monday, Nov. 2. I previously thought it would start during the weekend; well, it did in Taiwan and we get to see it just a day behind once subtitles are completed. I can't wait to see this romance comedy about Roy, who finally meets his match, but Alice may not be that interested in him.
Big Bang: 'Alive Galaxy Tour Final in Seoul' starts on Wednesday, Nov 4. It is a stunning performance and, sorry, it is only available in North America.
Friday is a busy day as we also start Witness Insecurity, a Hong Kong crime-fighting drama starring Bosco Wong as a Witness Protecting agent assigned to protect a beautiful cellist (Linda Chung) who had witnessed an assassination.
On November 7, T.O.P's web series Secret Message, costarring Ueno Juri, will be coming exclusively to DramaFever! The story follows a Korean man and a Japanese woman who fall in love and help each other overcome past scars. Check for the first three episodes on Saturday!
