2020/05/21 Source

Netflix Original Series "Kingdom" season 1, challenges the 48th International Emmy Awards for Best Picture and Best Actor in a Drama Series. Attention is focusing on whether the popularity of "Kingdom", which caused the 'K-Zombie' and 'gat' syndrome worldwide, will lead to the award.

The International Emmy Awards is an international TV program awards ceremony established to introduce outstanding programs abroad to U.S. viewers and is considered one of the world's top three broadcasting awards. The party will announce its candidates in September this year and announce its final winners at the awards ceremony on November 23rd.

Among domestic works, MBC's Human Documentary Love's "Pull Bbang Mom" won the first prize in the International Emmy Documentary category in 2010. Among Netflix works, "Last Hangover" won the Best Comedy Award.

"Kingdom" has been highly praised since its release on Netflix, being compared to "Game of Thrones" and "The Walking Dead". The New York Times also named "Kingdom" season 1 as one of 2019's best international TV shows with an assessment that it was a work 'dynamiting the conventions of the South Korean historical drama series'.

"We will invest more in K-content development and show good works to K-drama fans around the world through partnerships with Korean content producers", Netflix said in an investor letter at the time of its earnings announcement in the fourth quarter of last year.


"Kingdom" is directed by Kim Seong-hun, written by Kim Eun-hee-I, and features Ju Ji-hoon, Ryu Seung-ryong, Bae Doona, Kim Sang-ho, Kim Sung-gyu, Jun Suk-ho. Broadcasting information in Korea: 2019/01/25, Fri on Netflix.
