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!

2015 Countdown #4: Best Chemistry

Chemistry is something that can really make or break a drama. If co-stars have it, even the dullest of dramas can suddenly seem fun and enticing to watch. But if there’s a severe lack of it, all the life would be sucked out of any well-written show. Even though it’s not the easiest thing to define, you’ll know there’s some good chemistry or mojo going on when you see or feel it between two people. Maybe it’s just the natural flow they have with each other or perhaps the spark that just sets a drama on fire.

2015 Countdown’s #4: Best Chemistry is dedicated to all those pairs and couples that lit up our screens this past year!

2014 Countdown #4: Best Directing

It’s not always easy to quantify what makes directing “good” but you know it when you see it. Or maybe not. Either way, you definitely know a drama is brilliantly directed when you experience the feels. We’ve all definitely had our fair share of the feels when watching a particularly engaging drama, and we can thank the directing for playing a large part in that.
