"Doctor Prisoner" received an Excellence Award at the latest Seoul International Drama Awards. This marks five straight years that KBS has had a drama recognized in either the Top Excellence or Excellence Awards over the past four years, giving it the best record of the major networks with dramas.
Previous KBS dramas to have been so recognized include "Descendants of the Sun" in 2016 and "Love in the Moonlight" in 2017, which both received the Top Excellence Awards. "The Joseon Shooter" in 2015 and "Fight For My Way"in 2018, like "Doctor Prisoner" this year, only received an Excellence Award. "The Fiery Priest" from SBS won the Top Excellence Award this year.
