[News] 2010 10Asia’s Awards Drama & Director of the Year

Just like the results on year-end awards ceremonies, no choice will be supported by everyone. A drama cannot be considered ‘better’ just because more people have seen it nor can it be considered ‘proper’ just because more people like it. The drama, director, writer and actor of the year picked by the reporters and critics of 10Asia are strictly based on personal taste. The value of KBS TV series “The Slave Hunter” will not diminish just because KBS drama “SungKyunKwan Scandal” beat it out by one vote to take the title of drama of the year. And the fact that while last year, actress Ko Hyun-jung received an overwhelming number of the votes for her role in MBC’s “Queen Seonduk” for best actress, but that this year Jang Hyuk and many other names were mentioned, may be proof that the Korean drama industry depicted on a larger variety of people. But one thing 10Asia can tell you for sure is that our writers have observed and loved Korean dramas during the past year like no other. So please, just sit back and enjoy.

KBS TV series “SungKyunKwan Scandal” may be “not the most well-made drama but most meaningful drama” (Yoon Hee-seong) of the year. It was “a drama which poised the most fundamental questions about attaining one’s dreams in times when it was not easy to speak of dreams without taking the detour of dysphemism through naiive hypocrisy or coolness and that too with a rarely seen balanced and clean, unmade-up face” (Beck Una). And like the expression that it “repeatedly asked about principles, the times, revolution and intellect while presenting itself as romantic up-and-coming story on the outside — ‘the discovery of the year’ that nobody had anticipated” (Cho Ji-young), Kim Yoon-shik, no, Kim Yoon-hee, was a blow not only on the Confucian scholars at SungKyunKwan Academy but also to viewers and critics. Of course, it is true “the latter half was shaky and the story not in a homogeneous state at moments” (Kang Myung-seok) among other flaws the show had, but the assessment that it was “that heterogenous energy that created a space amidst its structure of being a young, historical and political drama” (Kang Myung-seok) also holds valid. More than anything, the fact that the drama poised sincere questions about the way we live the world, and that too at the younger generation through young people, was an attempt that for a change enlightened the lethargic times. That is why the most honest opinion on “SungKyunKwan Scandal” may be that “many dramas make the viewer laugh or cry but rarely do they make the heart beat with such passion.” (Yoon Hee-seong)
