Weekly Top 10 K-dramas
Our new king is Cinderella and Four Knights. Is there anything our spunky heroine Ha Won (Park So Dam) can't make happen? She even kidnapped Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyun), looking so huggable in pajamas, to go on vacation. Team Hyun Min (#teamhyunmin) is probably bigger again after our knight jumps into the pool to save a damsel in distress. Don't forget to update your prediction.
Love O2O climbs fast to #2. I'm not surprised, since I'm already in love with Yang Yang and the cute romcom. ICYMI, here are 6 reasons to watch the adorable drama. The happy ending is guaranteed to come this week, and all 30 episodes feel like a nice summer breeze. (Do the math: only 45 min. per episode makes the series equivalent to a 15-ep. Kdrama.)
Forget sleep! Lee Joon Ki rides in wearing a sexy eye patch. No wonder Scarlet Heart: Ryeo has leaped over previous leader Doctor Crush to grab #4 in the Top 10. Glad I've watched the original C-drama Scarlet Heart, but you may find this fan-made relationship chart helpful.
Let's Fight Ghost gets its happy ending and finishes at #6. It sets a great example for when a good drama keeps getting better and finishes as an excellent drama. Fans are right! This drama is irresistible with an adorable couple in Kim So Hyun and Ok Taec Yeon, who thanked the fans in touching messages. Wouldn't you want a second season?
Will there be a happy ending for Uncontrollably Fond? I've been glued to the heart-wrenching melodrama week after week for Kim Woo Bin's outstanding emotional performance. The drama, now at #3, is unfolding like a suspenseful mystery that any ending is possible. How about a miracle, scriptwriter goddess?
The power of new hit dramas is also showing effect on long-reigning dramas in the rankings. Running Man is #7, lower than usual, and Boys Over Flowers and Heirs are holding at #9 and #10, respectively.
All these new fantastic dramas have pushed Ice Fantasy to #12 in the list. The fantasy drama with a huge ensemble cast is actually getting better, revealing more of the mysterious themes in the plot. You'll be surprised to learn about singer-actor Ma Tian Yu, who plays the enigmatic Prince Shi.
