Winners from the ‘2015 Korea Drama Awards’


The ‘2015 Korea Drama Awards‘ that took place on October 1, gives us a review of Korea’s hottest dramas and stars for the past year.

Truthfully, the awards had lost heir legitimacy as a reliable indicator of merit a long time ago, and by seeing the winners list you can understand why many have started to consider it more as a popularity contest, than acting worthy award.

Kim Soo Hyun winning the Grand Prize Daesang for his role in “Producer” over Ji Sung who had career breakthrough brilliant performance in “Kill He Heal Me“, and over acclaimed veteran Yoo Dong Geun in drama “What’s With My Family” which was the biggest ratings hit in 2014, just makes you wonder how the awards were judged. “Misaeng” winning the Best Drama award is one of the rare hits where no one will want to argue about.
