At the 28th annual Critics Choice Awards, the popular Korean drama “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” and “Pachinko,” a multilingual series based on the best-selling novel by Korean-American author Min-jin Lee, are both up for awards.

The Critics Choice Association (CCA) says that the two shows have been nominated in the category for best foreign language series. They will compete with “1899,” which is a multilingual German show, “Borgen,” which is a Danish show, “Garcia!”, which is a Spanish show, “The Kingdom Exodus,” which is a Danish show by Lars von Trier, “Kleo,” which is a German show, “My Brilliant Friend,” which is an Italian-Neapolitan show, and “Tehran” (Israeli).

“Extraordinary Attorney Woo” And “Pachinko”

Extraordinary Attorney Woo” is a Korean show that aired in South Korea on the local TV station ENA and can be streamed in some parts of the world through Netflix. The show is about an autistic lawyer named Woo Young-woo who works at a big law firm. The main character is played by Park Eun-bin. “Pachinko,” on the other hand, was made in the United States and streamed on Apple TV+. It is a story of “war and peace, love and loss, triumph and reckoning” that spans three languages: Korean, Japanese, and English. The second season of the show is already being made.

Last month, ‘The King’s Affection,’ which starred Park, made history by becoming the first K-drama to be nominated for an International Emmy in the best telenovela category.


“Squid Game,” a popular Korean drama on Netflix, won two Critics’ Choice Awards in 2021: one for best foreign language series and one for best actor in a drama series (Lee Jung-jae). “Abbott Elementary,” an American mockumentary sitcom set in a made-up school in Philadelphia where most of the students are Black, has the most nominations with six. “Better Call Saul,” starring Bob Odenkirk, is close behind with five nominations. The Critics Choice Awards will be held in Los Angeles on January 15.
