Premiere Watch: God’s Quiz 5, Top Star Yoo Baek
Mystery, thrills, romance, and comedy are in store this week with two new dramas premiering.
God’s Quiz 5
Time slot: Wednesday & Thursday
Genre: Mystery, medical
Reasons to watch: God’s Quiz is that rare thing in dramaland, a show with multiple seasons. The drama last aired in 2014, so viewers have had a long wait for this latest season. The show follows a team of medical examiners as they solve medical mysteries and murders. Ryu Deok-hwan is returning in the lead role and his character is brilliant medical examiner. Kim Jae-won is a new addition to the show, with Yoon Joo-hee and Park Joon-myun reprising their roles. Let’s hope the showrunners have something fantastic in store and that the writing is as well-done and well-paced as the earlier seasons.
Top Star Yoo Baek
Time slot: Friday
Reasons to watch: Kim Ji-suk stars as the leading man in this rom-com about a conceited A-list celebrity who’s forced to hide out on a distant, distinctly un-modern, island while he waits for a big scandal to die down. Jeon So-min stars opposite Kim as an island woman who is sweet, strong, and no-nonsense. Though the pair butt heads, there’s romance ahead for the two of them. Lee Sang-yeob will be playing the second lead, Choi Ma-dil, who is a sailor and the “top star” of the island. I’d watch Kim Ji-suk in anything and would love to see him break-out as a lead actor so I hope this show hits daebak.
