The SBS 2015 Drama Awards wraps up the trio of year end big K-drama awards shows, and while network was the overall ratings winner for the year the selections for its awards were somewhat underwhelming. Joo Won took home the Daesang for his performance in Yongpal, which I actually liked and now makes me not blah about him, but it was now what I call Daesang worthy which ever way I look at it other than from a ratings rewards perspective whereby he headlined SBS’s biggest ratings hit this year.
