Weekly Top 10 K-dramas
There is another change in the Top 10 that even affects the Top 3 spots. Is a newcomer threatening Cinderella and Four Knights? How is Jealousy Incarnate doing? Is your favorite drama among the Top 10? Let's find out.
Cinderella and Four Knights still dominates the Top 10. Although I've been wavering between Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyun) and Yoon Sung (Choi Min Sung), the latest development puts Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo) in the lead, especially after he gives Cinderella a shampoo and a brave confession. Are you staying with your original prediction, or are you picking a different knight?
Historical romance Scarlet Heart: Ryeo has leaped to #2, surpassing Love O2O and Uncontrollably Fond. Forget time travel, forget the fabulous costumes, forget the palace intrigue, just give us Lee Joon Ki, Kang Ha Neul and IU on the screen. My heart is filled.
Love O2O continues to give us love and keeps #3. It's such a feel-good romance when the handsome male lead played by Yang Yang is never affected by negative forces. I'd recommend this drama as the best tonic to unwind a stressful day. Check out Yang Yang's 25th birthday party too!
At #5, Jealousy Incarnate is the real winner this week. I caught up on all the episodes and was richly rewarded with a charming scene between Gong Hyo Jin and Go'Dreamy Kyung Pyo. Did you know a measuring tape can be so sexy? No wonder this drama, particularly episode 8, jumped in ratings in Korea, and the drama moved up to #5 here. Even though Jo Jung Suk's character is likable, I'm terribly afflicted with the second male lead syndrome. Check out Go Kyung Pyo's very different roles in past dramas, but I think you'd all agree that he looks mighty fine in a well tailored suit.
Jealousy Incarnate also wins at treating the serious topic of breast cancer with a balanced hand. There's humor in seeing Jo Jung Suk in a bra, but the drama also enlightens and educates everyone, men and women, about the disease and treatments.
Ice Fantasy rises back to #9. I'm running behind again, but thankfully, we have great recaps about the latest developments. Riveting revenge saga Monster continues its steady rise as it heads toward a final showdown, currently at #13. Fighting!
