I feel like Manwol was truly the most iconic character of 2019 (for me at least). I even bought two pairs of Manwol knockoff earrings because I was so in love with her styling πŸ˜‚

Maybe this is controversial, but I don’t think Haru was that much of a scene stealer. Don’t get me wrong, I did love him! But I thought dealing Dohwa was more of a scene stealer in the sense that he lit up scenes I’m not sure they intended him to shine in. I miss his third-wheeling and his violin meta jokes β™₯️

For me it was Baek Kyung . For as troubled as he was I couldn't not watch him.

Well, if that’s controversial, it’s probably scandalous to say that I thought Haru was bland. I liked old Haru with the dreamy hair and soft voice, but he just became a typical wrist-grabbing lead after episode 8.

Agree!!! I didn't focus on Do Hwa until that zoomed in on his face at the library where he fell in love with Yeo Ju Da! 😍

Your surprise stems from your bias and is inconsequential to majority opinion because people clearly loved the drama which out ranks your bias.

Did I like the drama? Not specially, I didn't like the characters. But the app was the most interesting thing in the drama, it brought interesting questions. But the question wasn't about that. It was do you want an app that shows you if someone likes you in a 10m radius. I didn't think so many people would like this app after watching the drama.

Didn't watch this drama. Hate is love too, I guess? For all we know, ppl who voted for it probably don't want to wear it in real life either. It just makes an interesting drama. πŸ™‚

I agree that this app made an interesting plot (it was the best part of the drama for me) but the title was "Which drama item would like to get your hands on?".

What!? Vagabond won Best Chaos and not Graceful Family, Pegasus Market, or even What's Wrong With My Mother-In-Law?

I'm having 2019 SBS Drama Awards Flashbacks. My neck hurts.

The description says "the drama that had you glued to the screen" and not the "drama you're only watching because it's so chaotic" so I was really confused. I would agree if the description was the latter but...

Maybe because after the evil twin got killed off, the nice twin was chaotic neutral.

Lol did everyone just vote for Doctor John because they recognised ji sung? At least that is what I did!
I'm glad barro won best company, can I get a job in that team?

Best chaos should be Graceful family and TSLOMS.

Vagabond was chaos because it didn't make any sense with Dalgeon Mr indestructible.
I didn't watch Hotel Del luna or Her private life so have no idea about the other categories. I will Hotel Del luna best wardrobe from what I saw on the fan wall.

If it didn't sit right with most it wouldn't have won the most votes. The majority just doesn't care to comment about their opinions they show their strength in quiet numbers.

The majority has spoken and your opinion is not relevant for the majority since the drama was a smash hit.

Hey now I disagree with the majority on a lot of stuff and also I agree with them on a lot of other stuff. And I have a right to wonder why and share my opinion. If people have an argument for or against something then good. Isn't there anything you liked that the majority didn't? I mean I bet you'd wonder why too and have an opinion on it. Whether or not people want to share any of their opinion that's up to them.

aiyaiyai..this person either really loves Love Alarm or just can't take a difference of opinion with an open mind. sheeshh.. I for one, am really against the app (yes i know it's fictional) which made me drop it after a few eps.

It didn't even explain how the app worked, do we really want an app that's more invasive, competitive & exposing than Instagram likes?

What did nobody vote for Mo Seok Hee? I think she had a better wardrobe than the search ladies.
Sad to see HDL win one last bean. If I had one bean to give away & that was the only drama left on earth I still would by give it to HDL.

Also just started on HDL (saving it for after I finish A Moment at Eighteen which is lovely) but finished Extraordinary You a couple of days before the new year and I'm quite happy to see it as the runner-up in the one-bean category.

I like Haru and everything, but Park Hooja is absolutely the Best Scene Stealer out of the nominees.

Honestly not surprised that Jang Man Wol won best wardrobe. Part of the reason why I liked her character (aside from her backstory and character growth) is her sense of fashion. She got good stylists.

I'm curious why would anyone want to work in Hotel Del Luna (2nd place for best workplace)? It has ghosts and is owned/managed by a female goblin πŸ˜….

Me too. First, you kinda must be dead... And not a good one because you didn't want to pass the bridge. And if you're alive, it's very dangerous.

Most kdrama workplaces are demoralizing, soul-sucking places to work at. Aside from needing to be dead to work there, Hotel del Luna has great workplace culture. No need for degrees or expertise. I'm sure you don't need to suit up for the interview process. No required company dinners (actually the boss would prefer to not eat with you). No competing hotel out to destroy you. No numbers to meet AND your boss will personally go out there to grift people to make money. Your boss will also get rid of the really unruly clients/guests. No backstabby coworkers. And you get to help people cross over!

No backstabby coworkers? Hum... Chan Sung is kind and forgave them but a ghost vanished in the air because of the staff.

Really puzzled by the out come of this whole exercise... so was Hotel Del Luna really the stand-out show of the entire year? Or is it more a reflection on an overall lackluster and problematic year? I did not watch Hotel but I read the recaps and...nothing really grabbed me. People liked it, but most of the raves were for the wardrobe...if this is the best this year could do, in terms of the one show to rule them all, then I think it must have been a pretty sad year.

Best scene stealer has to undoubtedly go to Picasso from Graceful Family (RIP), with Extraordinary You's Lee Do-hwa as an honorary mention.
