Weekly Top 10 K-dramas
Which new drama is fast moving up? You may be surprised. Meanwhile, is Uncontrollably Fond's Kim Woo Bin finally catching up to Park Shin Hye in Doctor Crush, after losing her to Lee Min Ho in Heirs? (Just kidding!) Is your favorite drama among the Top 10? Let's find out.
I love both Doctor Crush and Uncontrollably Fond, which evoke very different emotional pulls. But Kim Woo Bin counting slowly to 10 with Suzy was so special last week that I forgot my Second Male Lead Syndrome.
Last week we noted that Ok Taecyeon's very cute web series Touching You was at #12. This week it has jumped to #5, coming right next to #4 Let's Fight Ghost, where Kim So Hyun plays an enchanting ghost who helps Ok Taecyeon. The handsome leading man really has a special attraction for ghosts and beautiful leading ladies. Don't forget to check out the fantastic gifs in the recaps.
Our brand new Chinese fantasy drama Ice Fantasy is at #11. DramaFever is simulcasting it with 4 new episodes a week after the initial 6 episodes in the first week. Feng Shao Feng (Prince of Lan Ling) and f(x) Victoria Song star as a couple who meet during turbulent times in the visually stunning epic. I'll write more about the characters and introduce the rising Chinese actors who play them. For instance, did you know about the hot singer-actor Jiang Chao who plays the villainous Fire Prince?
Wanted continues its gripping mystery. Right now it's almost at the darkest hour before the first hint of light. Ji Hyun Woo is a hot and capable detective, and I really wouldn't mind a little romance to lighten up the mood, but this story is focused on breathless suspense.
The 50-episode Monster, a sweeping revenge drama starring Kang Ji Hwan and Sung Yu Ri, is entering its last third of the run. A lot of the mysteries have been revealed, and we're hoping for the hero and heroine to overcome their obstacles. So things are moving much faster including time leap and amnesia.
I've gotten used to expecting Doctor Crush on Mondays, but here comes a highly anticipated romance drama, Second to Last Love, starring Ji Jin Hee (Blood, Jewel in the Palace) and Kim Hee Ae (Secret Love Affair) who'll prove that it's never too late to find love. The drama was delayed due to Ji Jin Hee's injury on set. Hope that he has fully recovered by now.
OMG! Nirvana in Fire starts this Friday? Clear your schedule, because this is a must-watch historical drama starring hot Chinese leading man Hu Ge!!! I don't know how I'll manage, but I have to watch this drama.
