Over 170 TV dramas to compete for Seoul awards
By Kim Hyun
SEOUL, July 27 (Yonhap) — The Seoul International Drama Awards 2010 have received 172 entries from 43 countries, including such top-rated television dramas as “NCIS” and “Doctor Who,” organizers said Tuesday.
The annual competition, set for Sept. 10 this year, awards actors, writers and directors of well-made dramas from around the world. It was launched in 2005.
This year’s lineup boasts variety in national origin as well as worldwide recognition, such as “NCIS” season 7 from the U.S., “Doctor Who” season 5 of Britain, “My House Is Full of Mirrors,” an Italian drama on the everyday life of actress Sophia Loren, “Where Is Elisa?” of Chile and “League of Glory” of South Africa, the organizers said in a press release.
The ceremony bestows awards on each category — single, mini-series and drama-series. There are also awards for actor and actress, director, screenwriter and people’s choice, topped by the grand prize.
This year, the organizers have added the new Korean Wave Special Prize that will be selected through a vote by local and foreign correspondents here and people in the drama industry.
The event is jointly hosted by the Seoul Drama Awards organizing committee and the national broadcaster KBS.
