Nice!

So, I was planning to finally start watching J-Drama and thought that it would be a good idea to watch something that won a award or sth.

So Which one do you think is the best choice for a beginner like me?

It really depends on your preferences - there isn't something which is one-size-fits-all since even an award-winning drama may not go down well with everyone. Maybe you can start off by looking at the synopsis of dramas and find something which suits you? You can also check out past posts on this blog to help you get an idea of the offerings per season.

Good luck in finding something you like!
