The revenge saga that never was.
2016 Countdown #4: Best Chemistry
When two actors really hit it off on screen, you just know this drama will go far. It doesn’t even matter if the rest of the plot sucks as long as they’ve got this special thing called chemistry. Perhaps nothing is more elusive than this in a drama. You’ve either got it or you don’t; there’s no fakin’ it. But if you do, watch out because things are about to get lit.
2016 Countdown’s #4: Best Chemistry is for all those couples we ship and love, friendships and bromances that warm the heart, and the perfect partners in crime!

2015 Countdown #2: Best Actor & Actress
These leading ladies and gentlemen enthralled us this year with their performances in some of our favorite dramas. Their acting prowess was on full display with the wide variety of characters they played. Even if we were just casual viewers before, these performances transformed us into full on fangirls. Make some room on your “bias list” because you might just have a new favorite after reading our list.
Let’s see which actors and actress made it onto our 2015 Countdown’s #2: Best Actor & Actress!
2015 Countdown #3: Best OST
Sometimes a good track is the only redeeming factor of the drama and that’s when we say “at least the music was good.” Sometimes the track is not as tolerable and will leave us thinking “not again” when it plays for the twentieth time in a pivotal moment. Original Soundtrack aka OST is not as important as the acting perhaps, but it is often the most memorable. Long after the lines and the plots have faded in our minds will we still remember the tunes that went along. We will hum it happily while doing our mundane chores and it will add a little pep to our steps when we hear our favorites at the most unexpected places.
2015 Countdown’s #3: Best OST is for all the music we heard in dramas this year!
