DramaFever Weekly Top 10 for September 8 to September 14
Which brand new show leaped into the Top 10 in its first week? I think our biggest problem as fans in DramaFever land is that there are almost too many choices. Time management is probably the utmost skill to acquire as we share the loves, tears, and yes, hot dreamy guys, be it by phone, tablet, PC, TV... whether we are awake or not. So, let's see who made it into the list this time.
Lee Dong Wook invaded into our consciousness long ago with such memorable dramas as My Girl and Scent Of The Woman, and there is no surprise that his new drama, Blade Man, leaped into the Top 10 list as soon as it was released. What's surprising is that this thrilling drama contains many hilarious moments. Read our enthusiastic fan club's first recap HERE. I was busy catching up on other shows myself, so if you have watched it and I'm sure many of you have, please drop me a note in the comments section about what you think of the show.
While It's Okay, That's Love came to an end after 'only' 16 episodes, it's heartwarming to know that love continues on. It is such a powerful drama that in a very short time we've come to really love and care about these characters. The problems they encounter are the ones that we may have to live with in the real world. It further speaks to the wonderful writing of the writer who was able to weave the multiple characters' lives, loves, and personal challenges all into one romance comedy drama.
I loved, loved the Mischievous 2: Love In Tokyo's honeymoon special, Love In Okinawa. I didn't watch Mischievous Kiss: Love In Tokyo when it came out last year. So I had to marathon it before I could watch the special. On Friday, I woke up with a sinking feeling that I wasn't done yet. Sure enough, DramaFever released it right on time that day. I had to really control myself by finishing season 1 first, and it was worth it. I have to confess that I had originally thought this story would be too young for me. Was I wrong! Although the heroine Kotoko (cute and hilarious Miki Honoka) started out as a 16-year old teenager, it took her 6 years to capture the heart of Naoki (charming and charismatic Furukawa Yuki) because she brought sunshine and passion into his life. The drama unfolds in a fast but satisfying pace. Not a single dragging moment. It has my golden seal of approval for a fun show that will brighten your day and remind us that patience pays off. A best combo serving is to watch the finale episode of season 1 and the honeymoon special together. Think of the couplet as one movie.
Allow me to indulge my lament once more: Why isn't The Night Watchman's Journal on the Top 10 List? Okay, I'll admit there is a very legitimate reason--There are so many good shows that are being offered now. (Heirs is the only "old" show that is still on the list.) I'll make one more plea for Prince Lee Rin (Jung Il Woo) though. He is doing great, considering he is embattled by not one, not two, but several evil enemies, including the king with a delusional alter ego, and I'm waiting for the serpent dragon to wake up anytime now. He will be helped by the conflicted night watchman with abs, Sang Heon (Lee Tae Young,) a new eye-candy discovery.
