August has arrived, which dramas are the hottest? Is last week's new leader The Bride of the Water God able to hold on to the throne in DramaFever's exclusive Top 10 list? Which Chinese drama has entered the rankings? Is your favorite drama among our most popular K-dramas and other Asian dramas? Let's find out!

Congratulations to the top 3 leaders, The Bride of the Water GodLove in Trouble (aka Suspicious Partner), and The Best Hit for holding on to their coveted top spots. We certainly can't get enough of Ji Chang Wook as he delights fans in a special program. Also, check out the recap and relive some of the best songs from The Best Hit in this new video.

Cheers also go to Love Me If You Dare, a surprise new entrant at #9, but it's no surprise that the unique thriller, starring Wallace Huo, continues to mesmerize fans. I didn't realize the popular drama's impact until I finally saw the drama and noticed some of the impressive scenes I've seen in other dramas could probably trace their origin from this early-2016 drama. The binge-worthy drama is not all about crime investigations, as the romantic side is both hilarious and passionate.

Goblin: The Lonely and Great God has been stealthily rising on the chart, and it's now soared to #5. It's certainly a great drama to watch and re-watch again, especially for Gong Yoo! (You can confess in the Comments if you're one of the re-watchers!) Previous leader and fan favorite Strong Woman Do Bong Soon also rose to #8, just behind My Sassy Girl and Ruler: Master Of The Mask which are still holding well at #6 and #7, respectively.

Another cheer is for the suspenseful Stranger (aka Secret Forest) as it enters the Top 10 for the first time, at #10. The drama has hit high ratings in South Korea, and I'm glad that international viewers are starting to notice this amazing thriller written by a first-time scriptwriter. Find out more about the drama here, as it heads toward a riveting finale this week.

New Chinese fantasy romance Lost Love in Times, starring Cecilia Liu and William Chan, has risen to #11 after its first week of broadcast on DramaFever. Read about the amazing story HERE, and find out more about the director who has directed many romantic hit dramas including Love O2O and Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms
