    KBS drama <The Slave Hunters> (director Kwak Jung-hwan, writer Chun Seong-il) gained the highest honor at the 37th Korea Broadcasting Awards, the nation’s most prestigious broadcasting award celebrated annually as part of the Broadcasting Day of Korea.


    KBS has thus become the winner of the prestigious award over the last three consecutive years, following <Asian Corridor in Heaven> in 2008 and <Noodle Road> in 2009.


    At a ceremony held on September 3 at KBS Hall which was hosted by the Korean Broadcasters Association, <The Slave Hunters> also won awards for the Best Drama (short TV drama category), Best Director and Best Screenplay.


    Set during the Joseon Dynasty of Korea, the drama revolves around the world of slave hunters and slaves. The magnificent scale, tight-knit plot and breathtaking action scenes of the drama have drawn significant attention. Its high-profile cast, which includes Jang Hyuk, Lee Da-hae and Oh Ji-ho, is another reason this drama has received the spotlight.


    Also, KBS snatched the Best Program Awards in six other categories including entertainment and cultural & arts.
     

    Meanwhile, speaking at the ceremony, KBS President & CEO Kim In-Kyu who holds chairmanship of the Korean Broadcasters Association, stressed the role of public service broadcaster in the digital era saying “a fair society is where an equal opportunity is guaranteed and public service broadcaster KBS should play a leading role in the fair society.
