Chinese historical television series "The Great Revival" shared glory with other international TV dramas at the Second Seoul Drama Awards held on Tuesday.
The drama took home awards for best drama series and best cinematography.
This continues Chinese dramas' ruling of the best drama series award, following last year's "Qiao Jia Da Yuan" (Qiao's Grand Courtyard).
However, actor Chen Daoming, who was nominated for best actor for his role in "The Great Revival," lost to Japanese rival Kimura Takuya, who was honored for his performance in "The Family."
The 41-episode "Great Revival," based on a well-known story in China, brings the audience back to the ancient Spring and Autumn Period from over two thousand years ago.
Besides the Chinese drama, other winners including Japan and South Korea also stood out from the candidates from 32 countries and regions.
The young Seoul Drama Awards has built its international fame alongside the well-known International Emmy Awards in the United States, aiming to recognize excellent TV dramas from all over the world.
