Our List Of The Best K-Drama Actresses Of 2021 (So Far)

Who is your favorite this year?

Naming the best K-drama actress this year is indeed very tough. Many excelled in portraying their roles, capturing viewers’ hearts along the way. 

One way to gauge whether an actress has done a great job in a project is by looking at how much impact she has made to the audiences. That’s an indication that she has made her character so believable and that she played it masterfully, so much so she has earned legions of adoring fans and gained nods of approval from critics alike.

To celebrate and recognize these amazing Korean talents, we’re presenting the Metro Best K-Drama Awards 2021. The first of its kind in the Philippines, Metro recognizes the top dramas, actors and actresses, and other technical achievements in this upcoming digital awards event. 

There will be a combination of Jury categories, People’s Choice categories, and special awards, that will cover dramas that are available to watch in apps or platforms accessible in the Philippines, and have aired in October 2020 and ended by October 2021.

The Jury categories will be decided by a panel of judges composed of Metro editors and experts, while the People’s Choice categories will be determined by our dear readers! Readers nominated their faves and voted for them via Metro’s social media channels.
