13 breakthrough stars of 2013

How could we possibly talk about 2013 and leave EXO out? (On a side note: I keep using this picture for my EXO articles because I really like it for some reason.) When EXO debuted in 2012 with "MAMA", they had a lot of fangirls crying at their awesomeness. But then as 2012 rolled on and on, and then 2012 turned to 2013, EXO seemed to simply fade in the background with next-to-zero promotions. Fans who once cried out of happiness would cry because they missed EXO, and everyone grabbed at every rumor that the boys would be making a comeback.

When summer 2013 rolled around - well, those sad tears were replaced with joyful tears. Everyone who had been making fun of them in 2012 and early 2013 were crushed under the juggernaut that was "Wolf" and "Growl". Fans couldn"t hear haters whining over the sound of EXO winning Triple Crowns, becoming the first million seller in years, winning multiple Songs of the Year, and then of course, the big one - snatching the Daesang at the "Golden Disk Awards".

The readers choice Two Weeks also kept audiences on the edge of their seats. The story depicts gangster-turned-desperate father Jang Tae-sans struggles, as he fights to survive and donate his bone marrow to his daughter. His journey is also one of self-discovery, of a realisation ones self-worth. One episode contained the events in a single day, and viewers followed the show in anticipation of Jang Tae-sans fate. One of the most positive aspects about this drama is its grounded, realistic plot(s); the drama illustrated the unending assault of bad luck (on Jang) in a relatable way. Surprises, via story twists, were also thrown in to shake up any attempts at predictions. The cementing factor to the dramas quality was the relentless drive to portray real human reactions to high-stress situations. The last episode left the drama with a satisfying open end, making it clear that life wouldnt be able to return to normal without reflection.

BEST ACTOR/ACTRESS Patricia: My pick for actor of the year is Choi Minho.

I havent gotten around to watching the final few episodes of Reply 1994, and while there are some legitimate reasons for why Im dragging my feet to finish this drama, Go Aras acting isnt one of them. Who wouldve thought that an actress whose primary claim to fame was being a punchline would emerge as one of the most respected and beloved talents of the year? By shedding her well-cultivated beauty queen image and taking on the decidedly unprincess-y role of Sung Na-jung in 1994, Go Ara put on a performance that was as entertaining as it was humbling. Sung Na-jung is just an all-around awesome character to work with, and Go Ara fully embraced the challenge and stretched it to its limitsresulting in a performance that not only endeared the character to the audience, but finally allowed Go Ara the chance to prove herself as an actress.
