Weekly Top 10 K-dramas
Cinderella and Four Knights keeps the crown. The delightful drama has only 2 more episodes to reach the happy ending. Is that really enough to finish the story? Won't Cinderella and her knights need to go to college and give us a season 2? Are you staying with your original prediction, or are you picking a different knight?
The true winner this week is Jealousy Incarnate again. I might just have to plant a yard sign for #TeamJungWon, because of what happens in episode 9. On the other hand, if the writer shifts the love triangle in favor of Hwa Shin (Jo Jung Suk) winning Na Ri (Gong Hyo JIn), I would accept it if it is done convincingly. But right now, I'm all for Go'Dreamy Kyung Pyo, whose Go Jung Won has exceeded expectation beyond even Lee Min Ho's Goo Joon Pyo in Boys Over Flowers, at this stage in the story. No wonder the romance drama has continued its ascent to #4 this week.
Love O2O keeps its #3 spot. This beloved romcom has now attracted fans who are watching it many times over again. Check out these adorable leading men that actress Zheng Shuang has starred with, but I'd bet I know who everyone's favorite prince is.
Revenge saga Monster, starring Kang Ji Hwan and Sung Yu Ri, has reached its grand finale, after many twists and turns through 50 episodes. No spoilers here, but congrats to the actors who play the good guys and the bad guys with aplomb. Ultimately, who is the monster? Is it the uncle who time and again came back like the bogeyman, or does the term metaphorically refer to greed and corporate evils? I think it's a combination of both, and there were also plenty of characters who got trapped by the monster into submission or joining the monster's den. Although Monster never reached the Top 10, it's worth pointing out that it has risen to #12 here, and in South Korea, it has maintained a double-digit rating that's higher than that of Scarlet Heart: Ryeo.
Ice Fantasy continues at #9 and has reached a pivotal turning point. Read great recaps about the latest developments. Let's Drink (Drinking Solo), at #13, is surprisingly funny and poignant. I don't have time right now to fit it into my schedule, but I was pleased with the first episode when I realized there is a multi-layered story under the one-dimensional title.
