A behind-the-scene story of SDA, by a Korea.com staff member
Korea.com has been voting in the People’s Choice of the Seoul Drama Awards since last year (2011). We attended the awards ceremony again this year. Thank you for supporting and showing interest in Korea.com and the Hallyu stars. Each one of your votes helped make the ceremony shine. Since K-pop and Hallyu culture have become popular all over the world, Korea.com will serve as a gateway to help fans gain access to cross-cultural communications and spread Hallyu.
The Seoul Drama Awards ceremony was held at the National Theater of Korea
On the first day of the SDA it rained a lot. The awards ceremony was held at the KBS Hall last year, but this year’s ceremony was held at the National Theater of Korea in Seoul. The N Seoul Tower, a popular tourist attraction, is located not far from the theater.
Doesn’t it look familiar? Yes, it has appeared in several TV series.
It was amazing to see popular actors and entertainers from popular TV series in person. As a staff member, I was honored to have the chance to report from behind the scenes of this special ceremony.
