jTBC Dramas Sky Castle and Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food Win Top Prizes at 2019 KCC Broadcasting Awards


In recent years it has been cable network tvN raking in the awards from the Big Three broadcast networks and reigning supreme as the cable contender. 2018 marked arrival of equal cable powerhouse jTBC and now the upstart is a true contender after winning the top prizes at the 2019 KCC Broadcasting Awards held by the Korea Communications Commission (KCC). Sky Castle won Best Drama and Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food won in the Hallyu popularity category. That’s an impressive showing in both the critical and mass appeal categories, and in a competitive year when tvN had critically acclaimed dramas Mr. Sunshine and Live and even higher rated popular dramas to compete with Pretty Noona including 100 Days My Prince, Why Secretary Kim, Encounter (Boyfriend), and Memories of Alhambra. Congrats to jTBC for winning the crown for 2018 dramas from the KCC.
