Before the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences hands out the winged statuettes for the 2022 International Emmy Awards, they should preface the event by saying: Mission accomplished. When the Academy held the inaugural International Emmys in 1973, the interest in, and market for, non-U.S. television was close to zero. (HBO, a global content champion, only recently drew back from international programming as part of companywide cost-cutting in the wake of the Warner Bros.-Discovery merger.) All this is proof of concept for the International Emmys, which have always strived to celebrate and promote the best in small-screen entertainment outside the U.S. The International Emmys this year will honor “Korean wave” pioneer Miky Lee, vice chairwoman of South Korean media giant CJ Group, with its 2022 Directorate Emmy Award.

The portrayal feels much more organic, which makes it feel even more violent and dynamic.”Major Korean film companies continue to put multiple crime action movies in their pipelines. “There have been many high-quality crime movies in Korea that introduced interesting subject matter,” says an official at Lotte Cultureworks.1 month ago The Hollywood Reporter
