TvN has amazing dramas.

SIGNAL and THEK2 are my favorites of TvN2016 for me.

Signa had the Best villain.

TheK2 is the BEST action-drama-politic 2016.

TheK2 had the Best couple : "Anna and Jeha"

Anna and Jeha's kiss in spain was so real and hot. i fall in love with both.

I agree with you about tvn. I really enjoyed signal, oh hae young, the good wife, and drinking solo, but the K2 was a big disappointment for me. I was expecting a high quality and slick action series, but it didn't seem to mesh the different tones well, the writing was weak, and characters were unlikable.

Signal's Kim Bum-joo is the face of evil and corruption. He deserves all the hate and the best villian title.

I'm just going to say this one last time. "Signal" was based on "Memories of Murder." If you like Signal, you should watch "Memories of Murder."

@Sojuboy,

Thanks so much for the pointer to MEMORIES OF MURDER. I watched SIGNAL after its run, so wasn't around for the live recaps and commenting. I've started watching Korean films as well as dramas, but am a wuss and don't usually watch thrillers (especially ones based on heinous real-life crimes). Am tickled to see that one of my fave character actors, Kim Roe-Ha, plays a supporting role... so that makes the film even more tempting. ;-)

For the record, aside from all the praise on DB for SIGNAL, the music really sold me on watching it. One of my favorite OSTs ever.

0

Signal was very loosely based on Memories of Murder. There was so much more to that drama besides the one case about the serial murder.

Signal is the best thriller drama ever in Korea for me, signal is the best drama this year
The way how they send us message of the past to the future and the way they match real criminals case to the story are really amazing

Fact is this poll can be easily rigged. I tested it by using Proxy and VPN. I was able to to cast votes 3 times. It would have been better if they had used Google spreadsheet which asks for login[that too is easy to fool] OR Setup a system on their own site.

2nd It looks more of a popularity poll as a few specific shows are inappropriate no. of votes even when that poll itself doesn't fit well with the show.

3rd. There are some options in some polls which either shouldn't be there or should be but still aren't. Choosing 3 best options doesn't work out well either.

4th - No one has watched or tried all the shows so whatever expeirence the audience has with limited no. of shows they watched, they voted according to it. In the end this polls ends up providing vague results.

I have voted but noway this yearly poll can be taken seriously.

Yes, especially this year, because there were so many good shows...
... and I hate voting for a show that hasn't finished yet for anything "best", in case they blow the ending.
So Legend of the Blue Sea wasn't one of my 3 best, but there's a good chance it would have been if it had finished.

I do agree that shows that it is questionable that shows that have not finished airing are included. As a rule of thumb, I would only include shows that have aired at least more than half of their episodes.

Db writers will write their own piece and how they feel about 2016 dramas.

I am not voting since I only watched 4 of the dramas airing this year. But I think there are a lot of people who mostly watch the hyped dramas and then vote on those few they have watched. There are no rules for being eligible to vote and it's mostly just for fun, but I can see your point. Personally I just don't feel right voting when I haven't even seen 1/4 of these.

I only wish there would be more questions framed in such a way so that Oh Hae Young Again would be the obvious choice for most pollsters, thereby allowing it to "win" more categories, and then...in so doing, entice more people into watching it. : )

Very much the opposite for me. Except for Jeaously Incarnate (which I haven't finished yet so I'm not going to vote for it), there's nothing I actually want to give my vote to. Maybe Signal, but I've only watched up to ep 6 so too early to tell.

Lots of shows that started well but fell apart. Lots of shows that I dropped because they were terribly pretty much from the beginning. A couple of good ones, but none outstanding enough to merit "Favourite Drama" for me...

I wouldn't call his going to army an award for either him or us, but he has to do what he has to.. I am so looking forward to the "maturity" he believes will come in 2 years.

It's not that he can't act, he just isn't charismatic enough to lead a show. Unless he improves to that point, he'll be winnowed out in favour of fresh blood in the next few years. (the field for male actors is rather stricter than for women, that way)

I kinda liked him in CITT and really thought he had improved, but judging from what he said in interviews, the PD allowed him free reign and they adapted the role to his limitations. The problem is his lack of versatility as well tbh. He hasn't demonstrated any range yet as an actor imo.

0

@yuju - I think you have it right, he doesn't have much range.

I've noticed he tends to play all his roles the same way, and the most obvious way - there's no nuance or depth to his acting, especially compared to certain other actors his age.

Yeah Entourage seems to have burst a lot of his bubble. It was pretty risky for him to take on such an infuriating character. Even more experienced actors would have had trouble with such a character, so it really further exposed a lot of his weaknesses. His acting in Cheese was not exactly nuanced, but it was ok for a second lead (I mean, what used to be a second lead .... yeah). Would have been interesting to see him giving his shot at playing the actual webtoon character and not the saccharine version of it tho.

I'm kinda conflicted between Lee Jung-gi and Park Hae-jin. But I decided to vote for Park Hae-jin. At least, Lee Jung-gi got a lot of screen times and chances to show his best performance, while Park Hae-jin ended up being an outcast in the show in which he was supposed to be the main lead. Not to mention how he wasn't included in the CiTT OST Drama pictorial book.

So, "Let them drink Maxim"? Are you sure you weren't a French royal in a previous lifetime? :P

"With Maxim, anyone can be a coffee prince!"

And you won't have to study in Italy for two years to become a barista, either. ;-)

Same with Beautiful Mind and Pied Piper :(

At least Age of Youth is leading in something, that best girlfriends category. But poor Beautiful Mind is completely left in the dust. For me Lee Young Oh was one of the most memorable main characters of the last few years. It will probably not get any mentions in the staff picks either.

I’ve put those two on my to-watch list. (Age of Youth I already had, Beautiful Mind now added). Might find time to see them only in 2017, so won’t be able to vote.
Funny when I think about it coz this year I started twelve 2016 dramas and dropped 9 of them start/ midway. In a year with such awesome dramas floating around, why did I pick the wrong ones and waste my time? ?

Age of Youth I think is getting more love on the girlfriend category, but I also think Dear My Friends deserve to be the best melo. OHY was more rom-com turned melo but really should just stay as rom-com.

Also with you on PU38 as Action/Thriller. Although hands down, Signal is the best on everything and anything this year!

PU38 and AoY are my 2 picks for best K-dramas for 2016.

Both had the combination of great writing and acting and a deft touch with the directing.

These 2 shows can compare favorably w/ the best shows on American cable.

There are a few dramas that are well-regarded that I still have to catch up on, but other dramas like "Bring It On Ghost", while not maybe not something critically acclaimed was a fun/enjoyable watch mainly for the banter btwn the 2 leads and OHYA was (aside from Seo Hyun-jin) overrated as the writing was formulaic and predictable w/ little in the way of interesting/fun dialogue (have yet to start it, but figure that I'm going to enjoy "Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim" more).

Eagerly awaiting "Bad Guys II" and even that reworked survival island due to writer Han Jung-hoon and any new projects from the writer of AoY, Park Yeon-sun.

Signal is the best drama of 2016, maybe the best korean drama drama ever.

Signal and Misaeng, the best kdramas in a while. I don’t think any other drama can ever top these two. Misaeng is a tad better than Signal imho.

Totally, haven't watched another kdrama that is as PERFECT in my years of watching kdrama. There's really no flaw in this drama, from cast, script, directing, editing !!

Truly one of a kind MINDBLOWING drama! I might've said 'Wow' more than a hundred times while watching Signal.

This voting made me watch the first three episodes of Signal again. I miss the trifecta. This is still my no.1 drama out of all I've watched (Western dramas included).

But I know my vote in that category will NOT be for that awkward, dancing in the rain kiss from Doctors. That actually got me to drop the drama. Eww!

That drama actually had MUCH better kiss scenes but in this poll the only option was that cringe worthy rain kiss. (A gentle reminder that the blame is completely on director, who took really awkward shots and made the kiss scene linger such an unnecessary amount of time).
And the poll couldn’t be about first kisses b/c if I remember correctly, the handcuff kiss scene in W wasn’t the 1st kiss between Kang Chul and Oh Yeon Joo so...

Yeah, kinda scratching my head at that particular kiss being included. It was really second hand embarrassment inducing.
