Yup. You read the title right. It is not that I am suddenly starting an award when I don’t even have existing readers in the first place. I saw the awards at Dramabeans yesterday. I knew Dramabeans for quite sometime but only this year that I became a regular visitor of the blog since I became an official korean drama addict this year. I watched korean drama for quite some time since about 9 years ago?? But its only this year I actually really watch drama. Last time, I would watch any drama that sparked my interest but now, I am actually watching a lot of drama and actually following the drama that is currently airing in Korea. Not All though. I still watch those that sparked my interest only (>_<).
Back to the topic, back to the awards…
FAVORITE DRAMA SERIES OF 2010
Pick up to three favorite drams??!! (o.o) It is seriously painstakingly hard. This is the last one that I decide the answers among all the categories.
After seeing the list, Sungkyunkwan Scandal is no doubt one of the three for me. The story is just well balanced and that became a problem. This year there is only two drama that made my heart goes thump just by watching every episode and the trailers are just so good that I was literally dying waiting it to air for real in Korea which are 1. Sungkyunkwan Scandal and 2. Mary Stayed Out All Night. I don’t know about others but Mary made my heart goes thump every episode but of course can’t still be compared with Sungkyunkwan. Mary is just a plain cute story. While Sungkyunkwan has a lot to offer than that. Another story that made my heart goes thump every episode is Bad Guy. I can’t imagine my heart thumped crazier than that. Bad Guy is just plain great. If only the ending is not disappointing, it can be THE drama of the year. Kim Tak Goo and Runaway Plan B?? I am very guilty. I am still watching. Thus, can’t really rate it yet. Some stories listed are nice but don’t really make the cut. And most drama I don’t watch so no comment (>_<). In fact, I don’t watch 10 drama on that list which means half of them!!! (>_<) I started to be a drama addict this year thats why (excuse to let myself slip (>_<)).
So, what about the other two?? I have no choice but to choose Mary Stayed Out All Night and Playful Kiss. Don’t get me wrong!! Its not that these two drama aren’t great, its just that it can’t be compared with Sungyunkwan. The two drama are really cute drama not like the all rounded Sungkyunkwan. So, if you asked me what is my real choice for the other two, I would answer A Man Called God and The Birth of the Rich. Am I the only one that thinks these two stories are great?? (o.o) Yup, it is not listed. I wonder why. These two drama are awesome. A Man Called God is like a pure action movie with great storyline. The Birth of the Rich looks like a normal drama and not that great but the cliffhangers are very good. It makes you continue watching and the storyline is not bad either. Thus, I really like it though it doesn’t look that great and because it doesn’t have any weakness either.
FAVORITE COMEDIC DRAMA: Coffee House/ My Girlfriend is a Gumiho/ Mary Stayed Out All Night
Who can beat the powerful Gumiho?? She is not just powerful she is just plain cute (>_<). Though half of the story is not really comedy (>_<).
FAVORITE HISTORICAL DRAMA: Dong Yi/ Sungkyunkwan Scandal
Dong Yi. Sungkyunkwan is great but for historical drama I like Dong Yi better (>_<).
FAVORITE ACTION OR MELODRAMA SERIES: A Man Called God/ Kim Tak Goo/ Bad Guy
A Man Called God. I LOVE action (>_<).
FAVORITE FAMILY DRAMA: Creating Destiny (Only watch this one. Thats why (>_<))
FAVORITE ROMANTIC PAIRING: Mary Stayed Out All Night/ My Girlfriend is a Gumiho/ Playful Kiss
This is hard!!! All the three couples are plain cute with each other (>_<). After thinking hard, I chose Playful Kiss. I guess Baek Sung Jo’s character make the couple more interesting?? (>_<)
BEST KISS: Playful Kiss/Mary Stayed Out All Night/ Personal Taste
This is also hard. But I chose Mary base on kiss alone (>_<). Personally I love all the three scenes. And all the three scenes are my favorite scenes so far for that drama excluding Mary. Mary has so may lovable scenes!!! (>_<)
FAVORITE PIGGYBACK RIDE:
I never pay that much attention to the piggy rides. They are so common!! (>_<) After thinking, I chose Sungkyunkwan because Guh-ro keep hiccuping all the way (>_<). So cute!!! (>_<).
FAVORITE CHARACTER: Moon Jae Shin/ Gu Yong Ha
Why there is no Baek Sung Jo?? I like him so much (>_<). A lot of my favorite characters are not listed in fact (>_<). Thus, left the two from Sungkyunkwan. This is also hard. I like both of them equally (>_<). In the end, chose Gu Yong Ha for his high spirits?? (>_<) Jae Shin ya (T.T)
BEST DRAMA POSSE: I AM LEGEND’s Comeback Madonna Band
Its not that I don’t like Jalgeum Quartet (>_<). But I really like the friendship among the band members (>_<).
BEST VILLAIN: SUNGKYUNKWAN SCANDAL’s In-soo
Of course he will make the best villain!! He is HOT!!! (>_<)
FAVORITE BROMANCE: DR. CHAMP’s Ji-heon & Sang-bong
These two are just plain cute with each other. Enemies and becomes friends (>_<). And they look good with each other too!! (>_<). I like Mu Gyul-Jung In and Jae Shin-Yong Ha too!!! But my most favorite is still Ji Heon & Sang Bong. (>_<)
FAVORITE ALTERNATE PAIRING: BAD GUY’s Jae-in & Tae-sung
I guess I want Tae Sung to be happy (>_<).
BREAKOUT PERFORMANCE: BAD GUY’s Kim Jae-wook
Don’t even noticed him in Coffee Prince (>_<). I agree on almost all actors in the list (>_<)
OVERRATED DRAMA: -
UNDERRATED DRAMA: PROSECUTOR PRINCESS/ PLAYFUL KISS/ MARY STAYED OUT ALL NIGHT/ DR. CHAMP
All these are great drama. I don’t even know that Playful Kiss And Mary are underrated (o.o)!!! Why???!!! But I would say the most underrated one would be Dr. Champ then. Dr. Champ is great. I watch Dr. Champ without any expectations and I found myself surprised that I found the series are great. The series is almost like The Birth of the Rich in the sense that there is nothing missing (>_<). Wait, seriously Prosecutor Princess is great except I found that the ending is a bit rushed (>_<).
DISAPPOINTING ENDING: OH! MY LADY/ BAD GUY
I have to say that the ending of Oh! My Lady is like Prosecutor Princess. Rushed (>_<). Bad Guy is I guess the most disappointing ending this year since I don’t watch Cinderella’s sister (>_<). Seriously, it would be THE drama of the year but in the end *Poof*. They just threw out a surprise for you.
BIGGEST WASTE OF TALENT: -
BEST PERM: MARY’s Kang Mu-gyul
Oh gosh!!! Thats like the beautiful hairdo ever!! (>_<)
BEST ‘STACHE: BAD GUY’s Kim Nam-gil
Best use of an idol star? Siwon (Oh My Lady)
Sorry Yoo Chun oppa. And I say I’m a TVXQ fan?? (>_<)
Worst use of an idol star? Eunjung (Coffee House)
I don’t really know her before this. I guess I would love to see her in a different role next time (>_<).
These are just honest opinions. Don’t hate me that much okay?? (>_<). And don’t forget I started to watch drama a lot starting this year (>_<).
