About SDA


Thank you for visiting the Seoul International Drama Awards,
a hub for drama exchanges worldwide.

The Seoul International Drama Awards, which started in 2006 for the harmony of mankind and cultural exchange through dramas, have grown into a global drama festival where 50 to 60 countries participate every year.


This September the 17th ceremony of the fabulous drama awards will take place in Seoul, South Korea


To everyone who loves drama,
We are going through a long dark tunnel called COVID-19.
The end of this tunnel is not easily predictable, but it is clear that humanity has always overcome all adversity in the expanse of history and we have to prepare for a return to everyday life.


Even when the whole world was suffering, people involved in drama have recorded the times and humanity through drama. At this award ceremony, those records will be presented.

225 dramas from 39 countries/regions,
the scale of entries that participated in the Seoul International Drama Awards 2022.
Together who love drama around the world, we will open the stage of the festival beyond the recovery into daily life.

Now, the dramatic power of drama opens borders again.
Please join us at the Seoul Drama Awards 2022.

Chairman of Seoul Drama Awards Organizing Committee
