Korean dramas have earned nominations for the Critics’ Choice Awards (CCA) for the third consecutive year, with a record-breaking four entries: ‘The Glory,’ ‘Mask Girl,’ ‘Moving,’ and ‘Body Value’ in the Best Foreign Language Series category. This reinforces the significant global presence of Korean content in the entertainment industry.

As per the list of nominees announced by the Critics’ Choice Association on December 6, the Netflix series ‘The Glory’ and ‘Mask Girl,’ along with Disney+’s ‘Moving’ and Tving’s ‘Body Value,’ join Italy’s ‘Good Mothers,’ Germany’s ‘The Interpreter of Silence,’ and France’s ‘Lupin’ as contenders for the Best Foreign Language Series award.

The Critics’ Choice Awards, held since 1996, is one of the prominent entertainment awards in the United States and Canada, organized by the Critics’ Choice Association. Alongside prestigious accolades like the Academy Awards and the Emmy Awards, it stands as a major recognition in American popular culture.

Notably, Korean works, starting with Park Chan-wook’s ‘Oldboy’ in 2005, have gradually gained attention, with subsequent nominations for productions like ‘Snowpiercer,’ ‘The Handmaiden,’ ‘Burning,’ ‘Parasite,’ ‘Minari,’ and ‘Decision to Break Up.’ In 2022, ‘Squid Game’ marked a historic moment, becoming the first Korean drama to secure nominations in three categories and winning two awards: Best Foreign Language Series and Best Actor (Lee Jung-jae).

This year’s nominations, where Korean dramas occupy four out of seven spots in the Best Foreign Language Series category, further emphasize their growing international acclaim.

Screenrant, a U.S. entertainment-focused media outlet, noted the surge in Korean drama popularity following the immense success of ‘Squid Game.’ They attributed this to Korea’s continuous appeal, evident in its dramas exploring various genres like romance, action, and thriller, along with a commitment to diverse and unconventional storylines.

The 29th Critics’ Choice Awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on January 15, 2024, at the Century City Paramount Center in Los Angeles, California.
