The popularity rankings for the fourth week of August in the combined TV-OTT drama category have been announced.
As of August 29th, Namgoong Min, the leading actor of MBC’s “My Dearest,” claimed 1st place in the “Top 10 Most Talked-About Drama Actors.”
Following Namgoong Min, in second place was Ahn Eun Jin from MBC’s “My Dearest,” in third place was Ryu Seung Ryong from Disney+ series “Moving,” in fourth place was Nana from Netflix’s “Mask Girl,” and in fifth place was Go Yoon Jung from Disney+ series “Moving.”
In episode 8 that aired on August 26th, the heart-wrenching sobbing of Yoo Gil Chae (played by Ahn Eun Jin) brought tears to viewers as Lee Jang Hyun (played by Namgoong Min) faced a life-threatening crisis. Towards the end of the episode, believing that Lee Jang Hyun had died, Yoo Gil Chae held onto the fur vest he had given her during the war and sobbed inconsolably.
The next day, Yoo Gil Chae climbed up the mountain, holding the fur vest given by Lee Jang Hyun and calling his name three times. This was her belief that the dead might come back to life. Episode 8 ended with Yoo Gil Chae’s tearful plea, endlessly calling out Lee Jang Hyun’s name.
