Descendants of the Sun, Autumn in My Heart, and Winter Sonata Voted Most Popular KBS Dramas of All Time

I’m going to call Song Hye Kyo the Queen of KBS from now on, and it’s even more impressive that she’s achieved this level of one-two kill 16 years apart. KBS ran its own poll recently polling 1000 random viewers on their favorite KBS drama of all time. Coming in first is Descendants of the Sun with Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo, which isn’t a surprise at all. What’s surprising is second place went to Autumn in My Heart which launched the seasons drama series starting with the weepy fauxcest romance of Song Seung Heon and Song Hye Kyo. Dang, Song Hye Kyo needs to always do dramas with other Song leading men lol.

I was surprised at the second spot for Autumn because I though the third place finisher Winter Sonata would be more popular. That’s the drama credited for creating the Hallyu wave through Asia and singlehandedly responsible for Bae Yong Joon‘s entire career and net worth. It’s also a testament to the staying power of AiMH and WS that it’s still tops so many years ago, with the 4th place finisher a much more recent drama Moonlight Drawn by Clouds with Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung.
