[PHOTOS] Top 10 Best Highlights From 2016 KBS Drama Awards + Full Winner List

2016 has been a great year for K-drama productions, as we see ratings soar over a number of hit dramas like ‘Descendants Of The Sun’, ‘Love In The Moonlight’, ‘On The Way To The Airport’, and more. The annual KBS Drama Awards was held yesterday in Seoul to celebrate the year’s best drama productions, giving recognition to various actors and actresses, as well as the scriptwriters who’ve contributed much to the dramas’ success.

There’s no doubt that ‘Descendants Of The Sun‘ and ‘Love In The Moonlight‘ were the biggest winners of the night, especially for the Song-Song couple, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo, whom were honoured with Asia’s Best Couple Award presented by Viu, Best Couple Award, as well as the Grand Prize (Daesang) at the 2016 KBS Drama Awards.
