Hot Stove League was incredible, and Nam Goongmin's daesang has been long overdue anyway.

I hope The King: Eternal Monarch gets its due recognition in South Korea. The quality of acting, production and soundtrack are top-notch. It did not garner as high Nielsen ratings as it deserved because there was a surge of Netflix subscriptions in April, presumably due to the pandemic, and viewers preferred to watch it on Netflix. It achieved tremendous success on Netflix, becoming the most watched Netflix TV show in at least 11 countries and in the top 10 in at least 19 other countries. It was the most watched kdrama on Netflix from mid-May to mid-August. It brought recognition for kdramas in other parts of the world like Africa, South America and the Middle East. It would be a shame if it does not get recognized in its own country.
