Weekly Top 10 K-dramas
Which new drama has already galloped into the Top 10 within days of its release? Which drama do you think has the best cliffhanger? Is your favorite drama among the Top 10? Let's find out.
Doctor Crush is still the leader! It also leads in South Korea with a steady 20%-plus rating. Only 4 more episodes and the suspense is picking up! The undercurrents for the ongoing investigation and internal power struggles will soon converge and make waves and may affect our leading couple's relationship. A young doctor is also experiencing a possibly terminal illness. Oh, I'm on pins and needles!
Without a doubt, Cinderella and Four Knights is the real winner this week. It galloped up to #5 even though it was just released this past weekend. Our plucky heroine Ha Won (Park So Dam) is surrounded by 4 handsome knights: Jung Il Woo, Ahn Jae Hyun, Lee Jung Shin, and Choi Min Sung, who will all fall irresistibly in love with her. Hey, I'm in love with her too. How about you?
Uncontrollably Fond is holding on to #2, while its uncontrollable angst doesn't let up. My Second Male Lead Syndrome crush, Choi Ji Tae (Im Ju Hwan), is finally taking a stand against his manipulative parents. There is an old saying that "A father's debt is paid back by the son," and it's simply heartbreaking to see how both sons have shouldered the burden for what their father did. The burden on No Eul (Suzy) is, of course, no less as she tries to survive under enormous pressures. This melodrama is reaching a crescendo but I can't even guess the way forward. Everything is possible with the double-twisted cliffhanger at the end of episode 12.
I'm a little behind on #10 Ice Fantasy, but I did catch the fascinating segment on the Dream Weavers. Find out more at the enthusiastic episodes 1-10 recaps. At #13 is the acclaimed Chinese historical drama Nirvana in Fire which has jumped fast since its release a week ago. Nirvana in Fire is considered the best among the best in the martial arts genre because of its careful attention to details, gorgeous cinematography, excellent performance and direction, and more.
New drama Age of Youth, a cute romcom with 5 roommates and only 12 episodes, is also doing well at #11.
What is your favorite cliffhanger now?
Let's Fight Ghost is staying solidly in #3. What do you think about the HUGE revelation in ep. 11? I won't spoil it here.
With all the excellent dramas we have, the #1 drama I'm waiting for is Wanted, which concludes this week. Fans had to wait through last week due to Olympics programming, but this week, we'll finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. We hope!
I'm glad that some dramas are near the end so that I can make way for new dramas; however, the cliffhangers are killing me. So, which drama do you think have the best cliffhangers now?
