DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for November 9, 2015
Guess which fantastic music show leaped into the Top 10 list for the first time? It may not be what you think. How is newcomer Bubblegum doing? Find out which of your favorite dramas are on our new Top 10!
I love it that Cheer Up! is #4 on our Top 10 list. This delightful drama has been getting low ratings in Korea, not because it isn't good, but because it is in the same time slot as the masterful historical champion Six Flying Dragons and modern intrigue Glamorous Temptation. Watching how the students bond in Cheer Up! makes me wish I was in high school again, especially with Kim Ji Suk as the homeroom teacher. I really feel a loss that this drama is only 12 episodes and will end this week.
I am really enjoying romcom prince and princess Roy Chiu and Alice Ke in Marry Me or Not?, The combustible sparks aren't just flying between the two dueling stars but also between former besties-now-frenemies Alice Ke and Joanne Tseng. This brand new on-air drama from Taiwan is fast rising in popularity with its hilarious dialogues about men and women with fast-paced action.
Another web drama series, Secret Message, is going to sooth your soul. You don't have to be BIGBANG's fan (but you probably should be) to journey with Choi Seung Hyun (aka T.O.P) in his quest to find solace and love after a heart-breaking loss. Each episode is only 10 minutes. So if do the math, you can brew a pot of tea or coffee and enjoy the first 3 episodes (each split into 2 parts) in one break. I already did!
In other news:
Answer Me 1988 starts Monday, November 9. Starring Lee Hye Ri (Hyeri of Girl's Day) and Go Kyung Pyo (Il Rak in Tomorrow's Cantabile), the coming-of-age drama focus on a group of teenagers set to the excitement around 1988 Seoul Olympics.
BIGBANG MADE 2015 Concert will finally start on Wednesday, November 11. it is exclusive to DramaFever and is only available in North America. The episode covers BIGBANG's final top in New Jersey in their most recent USA tour, and you'll get to see them perform songs from their newest album as well as classics.
MI: 5 Season 1 & Season 2 start on Friday, November 13. This famous series is about British agents from the secret MI:5 division fighting against terrorists and other threats to national security. The first 2 seasons are probably my favorite because of Matthew MacFadyen (Mr. Darcy in the Pride & Prejudice movie.) See if you can spot the hidden sparks between him and fellow agent Keeley Hawes because the two stars will eventually marry in real life. (I love real-life romances!)
This weekend's movie is Castaway on the Moon, starring Jung Jae Young and Jung Ryeo Won. I saw this movie years ago before I became addicted to Kdramas. The premise seemed incredible at first: A man stranded on a small island in the middle of the Han river falls in love with a girl who is a hermit in her own apartment. Be ready to be charmed by this story of two people finding the courage to embrace unfamiliar environments and fall in love despite their distance.
