Joynews Poll Selects Hospital Playlist and The World of the Married as Best Dramas of 2020, The King: Eternal Monarch and Backstreet Rookie Win Worst Dramas

Oooh, I totally forgot that year end is coming (though still two months away) so it’s starting polling season on best/worst lists. Kicking it off is Joynews Korea which held a poll this month to celebrate it’s 16th anniversary. It polled 200 entertainment industry insiders including agency heads, television producers, movie and drama producers, and entertainment news writers for their pick of Best and Worst K-drama of 2020. Winning Best Drama was Hospital Playlist with 70 votes followed pretty closely by The World of the Married with 60 votes. Other K-dramas getting votes in the best side include Kingdom 2, Secret Forest 2, Crash Landing on You, It’s Okay to Not be Okay, and Itaewon Class. On the ignominious flip side, the drama that got the most votes for Worst Drama was The King: Eternal Monarch with 46 votes, followed by same network and time slot successor Backstreet Rookie with 30 votes. Other picks for crappy dramas of 2020 include Meow The Secret Boy, A Piece of Your Mind, and Hi Bye, Mama. I vote to throw Alice in the steaming pile of doo side as well.
