On October 2, the 2019 Korea Drama Awards were held at the Gyeongnam Culture and Arts Center.
Choi Soo Jong won the Grand Excellence Award for his performance in “My Only One” where he portrayed a father who hid his identity and only lived for his daughter.
“A drama is like an orchestra, so it’s not something that’s born just because someone does a good job,” said Choi Soo Jong. “Everyone’s hard work and efforts presented themselves like this. I sincerely thank you for this grand award. I’ll continue to work together to achieve good and work hard to be a good influence and be a channel of blessing.”
JTBC’s widely popular drama “SKY Castle” won Best Picture for its story of rich families and their extreme obsession with higher education. “SKY Castle” began with 1 percent in viewership ratings and achieved a peak of 23.8 percent. It was also picked up by Warner Bros. who signed a contract for a U.S. remake.
In its 12th year, the Korea Drama Awards is the largest drama awards show that honors all dramas that aired in Korea in the past year including the three major networks, cable channels, and general service program channels.
