Weekly Top 10 K-dramas
Guess which new drama made a surprise entry into the Top 10 K-dramas! In the battle for first place, will the winner be last week's king Running Man or Big Boss Descendants of the Sun? Find your favorite shows in our new list of Top 10 K-dramas!
Congratulations to Descendants of the Sun! The riveting romance between Big Boss Captain Yoo (Song Joong Ki) and Dr. Kang (Song Hye Gyo) has pushed the fantastic drama into the top of all current DramaFever offerings. In South Korea, devoted fans have banned their men from talking to them, and even postponed shopping online, in order to watch their #1 favorite drama with full attention. How about you? What have you given up because of DOTS fever?
Although my plate is full, I couldn't resist checking out The Entertainer because of the incomparable Ji Sung, and it's turned out to be a touching story about new beginnings. Ji Sung plays an ambitious music producer who has been back-stabbed by the K-pop company he works for. He runs into Hyeri's brother Kang Min Hyuk, a talented singer who has been wrongfully entangled in an assault case. How will the three characters change one another's lives? There seems to be a mystery backstory too. I like the drama so far, and will continue to watch more, especially for Park Shin Hye, who will appear in a cameo in episode 3.
Marriage Contract rises higher to #5, as fans become more and more attached to the stirring romance between UEE and Lee Seo Jin, but dark clouds loom ahead as the finale comes. Can there possibly a happy ending? Although we romance fans prefer happy endings, it would be disappointing if the drama takes the easy way out by finding a miracle drug or genius surgeon. I think most of us who have noticed K-dramas making last-minute changes to satisfy a perceived demand understand that an easy happy ending doesn't always make a good drama. Here, we've known about Hye Soo's brain tumor from day one, so despite my fervent wish, I want even more to see an ending that the writer has envisioned truly from the heart. A high quality team and cast would carry out the ending to our satisfaction. So far the drama hasn't disappointed us, so let's wait and see how it'll unfold. In the meantime, relive that passionate kiss to your heart's content!
In other news:
It's rare that we get a contemporary romcom from China, but here comes My Amazing Boyfriend with a wild premise of an actress who meets a superhuman who is awakened after a hundred years. If it sounds familiar, it's because it is a remake of My Love From Another Star. It's also interesting that it stars Kim Tae Hwan, a very cute Korean model-turned-actor in his first leading role.
Before Lee Min Ho became famous for Boys Over Flowers and before he had a terrible car accident that forced him to rethink his life's objectives, the 19-year-old actor starred in Secret Campus along with Lee Do Hyun and Park Bo Young. Make room in your schedule for it starting April 29!
