DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for September 1st to September 7
With the fall season coming, do you clean and reorganize your closet, or would you rather start a new to-watch list of all the wonderful dramas you've been wanting to watch? You know what my answer is. Although the Top 10 list is a 7-day snapshot, it is very clear about what the audience favorites are now: romance, love triangles, high-school loves and dreams, mystery and intrigue, as well as entertaining reality shows. What's on your list?
While It's Okay, That's Love continues to make us laugh and cry, its compelling and candid portrayal of how people deal with mental illness (or other afflictions) while never stopping to love is genuinely touching and captivating. The hardest part is that it is sharing these messages about living and loving without lecturing us. Hye Soo (Gong Hyo Jin) is a maturing young woman whose solitary heart has been opened by the love of a charismatic but imperfect man Jae Yeol (Jo In Sung), whose own private suffering will now need her love and support. Will they and can they have a future together? (And who would have known that shaving your guy's stubble can be so incredibly sexy and heartbreaking at the same time?)
The Joseon Gunmanhas galloped to its mixed happy ending. Manga adaptation Skip Beat also finished its run, and I really would like to watch it again, if I get a chance. Love Myself Or You is entering the melodrama phase, although the other cute guys and gals in the restaurant are helping to sprinkle laughter and dessert to cheer us up.
The Night Watchman's Journal should be entering a pivotal point this week as Prince Lee Rin (Jung Il Woo) finds that he has more enemies than friends, but he does have one person to protect now. Despite his royal status, he's essentially an abandoned orphan who has had to fend for himself growing up.
In other news:
Blade Man (formerly named Iron Man) starts this week. It stars Lee Dong Wook! Need I say more? If there is one beloved item that you keep in your wardrobe from spring to winter all year long, it would be Lee Dong Wook! But you could read up (and look at) Shirtless Lee Dong Wook anyway.
