This December, we will see stars congregate together for the annual Asian Television Awards (ATA) and will witness local singer-songwriter JJ Lin, British singer Charli XCX and Indonesian songbird Rossa headlining the show.
With this year’s theme being #CelebratingAsianTV, the 21st ATA will also be honouring some of Asia’s best, with award categories including the Best Drama Series, Best Reality Show, Best Actor and Actress in a Leading Role being presented that night.
On a more relatable note, with Hallyu gaining dominance in the region, Mr Ko Dae Young, the President and CEO of Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) will be the recipient of ‘Award for Outstanding Contribution to Asian Television’. The ATA’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to Asian Television honours exceptional individuals who have distinguished themselves through their accomplishments and contributions to the TV industry in Asia Pacific and the world. Mr Ko Dae Young will be presented with the award at the ATA gala, attended by industry luminaries from Asia and beyond on 1 December 2016, at Suntec Singapore.
As the first public service broadcaster in Korea, KBS has remained the most influential and creative media organisation in the country, with two terrestrial and six cable TV channels. It also runs six domestic radio channels across various international platforms. The station’s strong presence can be felt from its wildly successful release of the Korean Drama ‘Descendants of the Sun’, where the series was a massive hit in South Korea and across Asia. KBS maintains its reputation as the nation’s most trusted source of news and information, along with their high quality documentaries and dramas that have swept across the shores of almost every single country in the region and beyond.
In a bid to celebrate Asia’s finest television, (x)clusive will be giving away fifty (50) pairs of tickets for you to be part of the 21st Asian Television Awards.
