[trans] VOGUE: 2010 Keyword & Awards


What happened in the world during this year? In order to wrap up the year 2010, we picked keywords from 8 categories to describe this year. As much as there were good news, yet we had ones which were saddening too. We selected the ‘Vogue’ awards based on an objective basis and subjective standards. Unfortunately, this award has no trophies, nor prize money.


6. Dramas with unexpectedly high viewer ratings.
Dads and moms have definitely taken over the living room remote control. “Dong Yi’s,” “Giant’s,” “Baker King, Kim Tak Goo’s,” and other national dramas’ high viewer ratings are the evidence. Dramas that received a lot of attention even before broadcast, such as “Road Number One,” “Personal Taste”, “Fugitive,” and “Marry Me, Mary” did not have satisfactory results, while “Playful Kiss’s” ratings were a joke. “Gumiho” was an unexpected treasure. Spunky youngster, Tak Goo’s activeness was surprising. (The highlights of) “Life is Beautiful,” “Cinderella’s Sister,” “Dae-Mul,” and “My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox” were the earnest scholars who did not let our hopes down. However, no matter what anyone else says, the ones who received the most attention in the drama category are Sungkyunkwan’s flower boys!


5. JYJ and Jaebum’s Restarting of activities.
SM quietly withdrew the legal complaint that kept JYJ from releasing their new album. Compared to last year when their future looked dark, it seems like they have accomplished much on their own. Although the “Invisible Hand” that they must overcome still exists, older sister and fans earnestly watch over them. Though there are so many idols in the entertainment industry, (we’ll wait for them) because losing a gem of a talented person is sad news.


1. Idol singers Gone Musical Actors.
“Mozart!’s” Xiah Junsu, “Rock of Age’s” Onew, “Spam-a-lot’s” Yesung, “The Three Musketeer’s” Kyuhyun… We cannot rate idol singers with the devaluing idea that they are in musicals simply because of their “idol” title because the musical stage is one that demands so much skill. This year, we were able to see many fierce idols in musicals. It’s reasonable to say musical ticket sales and the growing interest in musicals were influenced by them. Since SM and YG have set up musical production companies, it’s safe to say that the idol industry is in support of idol-singers performing in musicals.
