    Good to see so many DIFFERENT good dramas and actors winning - in the Japanese poll A Girl and Three Sweethearts pretty much won EVERYTHING. I'm pretty sure if there'd been a category for 'best dog in a drama' they would've won that too even though they didn't have a dog. XD

    Only one I'm a bit confused about is DoTS winning 'Best Romantic Comedy'? Sure it had its romantically comedic MOMENTS, but that did NOT make it a romcom (and I LOVED DoTS). There has to be a limit of how things get nominated in sections they clearly don't belong and people then vote for them......

    My most favourite win? Train to Busan - hands down, no contest. I watched that movie and thought it was one of the best horror movies I've seen in a LONG while.

    No Signal wins? This list is invalid. How Scarlet Heart won that much is appalling to me.

    Signal was an outstanding drama thriller. I'm surprised it didn't make a higher ranking. (And I would really like a sequel)

      Hmm... No. W was good but, in this category, Signal should definitely win first place. Unfortunately, it has far less viewers. W is more of a fantasy drama than a thriller.
