The Korean drama expansion continues into the end of the year as the K-ent contingent made their presence known at this week’s 2022 International Emmy Awards. Not to be confused with the Primetime Emmy’s which are more prestigious covering top US shows, the International Emmy’s are more run the entire spectrum and probably harder to compare shows and performances across various countries. Sageuk drama The King’s Affection took home Best Telenovela in a first for a K-drama, though Squid Game being a Netflix produced show was nominated for a US Emmy and lost out to Succession. Song Joong Ki flew out to New York and attended as a presenter for the Directorate Award, Lee Seon Kyun was there as a nominee for Best Actor, and also present were Korean actor Im Shi Wan and actor-singer Rain. I’m so so proud to see how far K-dramas are being recognized in major international level events.
