End-of-the-Year Fun

Last Chances to Vote!

gold-medal thumbprint webMBC has pre-empted this week’s episodes of “Pride and Prejudice” to air their entertainment and drama awards shows. We’ve lost three episodes to pre-emptions now, so the show will have to continue till Jan. 12 to finish its 20-episode commitment. A one-episode extension might take us to Jan. 13. I’m agnostic about an extension. “Pride and Prejudice” appears carefully plotted, so I’m not sure what an extension could add. But would I really complain about more Choi Jin-Hyuk?

 

Meanwhile, it’s the end of the year and there’s still time to check out the best, worst and silliest of end-of-year K-drama surveys. Since the beginning of December when I wrote about a few of the surveys out there, I’ve found a couple more:

 

The poll at KCON covers all things hallyu, so be prepared to have opinions on K-pop as well as K-dramas. It also includes a vote for best hallyu blog, with Couch Kimchi, Dramabeans, and half a dozen others in the running. Voting continues through Dec. 30.

 

Here’s another one, the vote for best drama at KoreanDrama.org. The site may have an odd approach to English grammar, but they have a great poll: only one question, eight finalists, nominated by folks at 37,844 different IP addresses in 139 countries. And who doesn’t want another chance to weigh in on the debate about whether or not “You from Another Star” was the best thing since sliced bread? It’s already tomorrow in Korea (from where I sit), so only one day and 21 hours left to vote!

It's okay, it's a comment. Leave a note!
