Weekly Top 10 K-dramas
There is a new shakeup in the Top 10! Which new drama has changed the Top 3 rankings? How is new action thriller The K2 doing? How is Jealousy Incarnate affecting your choice? Is your favorite drama among the Top 10? Let's find out.
Our winner Cinderella and Four Knights has concluded with a very happy ending. Not only is it safe to watch, I highly encourage it. Admittedly I started the grand finale with some trepidation. All you experienced K-drama lovers know how important endings are, because a poor ending can easily let down an otherwise engaging story. However, Cinderella's ending is so touching and wonderful that I cried and laughed several times, and went to bed with a happy heart. Yes, love conquers all. Let's have more love and less selfishness in the world.
BTW, have you reviewed your original prediction for Cinderella and Four Knights? I want to shout to the world here just how adorable the kind knight Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin) is. If there is a season 2, I want our singing knight to find his true love too!
Scarlet Heart: Ryeo easily holds #2 and makes us cry buckets, as it enters a new chapter for the intense palace intrigue and the passionate love triangle surrounding Hae Soo (IU). Our 4th Prince Lee Joon Ki has emerged to be the courageous bleeding knight for any romantic heart, but I can also understand the immense pressures upon 8th Prince Kang Ha Neul. The drama has given us another female heroine in Court Lady Oh (Wee Hee Jin) whose unwavering love and bravery is both touching and inspiring.
Jealousy Incarnate has switched places with Love O2O and takes #3. The two male leads' slugfest in the mud is something I've never seen before in any drama, Asian or other. It was hilarious and painful at the same time. Frankly, I think if I were Na Ri (Gong Hyo JIn), maybe it's time to ditch both men and find another mate, or stay single and free. How can the men put their jealousy above her? Wasn't there a tide coming in? The scriptwriter is pulling and pushing, with #TeamJungWon kicking and screaming, toward Hwa Shin (Jo Jung Suk) and away from Jung Won (Go'Dreamy Kyung Pyo). We'll find out more in the new week.
As predicted, The K2 has fast-tracked to #6, and we find out what K2 stands for. Aside from our charismatic leading man, the performance by all the actors, particularly the "bad guys," is simply superb. We can't help but be drawn into the intrigue and mystery in the suspenseful story that has a lot more to offer than action and heat. Speaking of heat, how do you like Ji Chang Wook's high-speed chase and nude fight in the men's shower? Actress Song Yoon Ah who plays the heiress and politician's wife is fabulous. After the stunning explosion scene, I'm even wondering if there is a setup for a second female lead in a triangle. What do you think?
If you're looking for an easy watch without stunning car chases and painful historical battles, enjoy the sheer happiness radiated from the #4 drama, Love O2O, with the adorable Yang Yang and the other 6 cute guys. On the other hand, To Be A Better Man, a multi-layered drama has also ended with a satisfying ending after much angst and character growth.
