The “Tokyo International Drama Festival Awards” is a chance for many dramas overseas to receive recognition on Japan television by being presented with an award, which demonstrates that a drama is capable of receiving positive reception.
The “Special Award” receiver, “Dream High,” portrays students at an entertainment school with ambitious dreams to become distinguished stars through singing and dancing. The drama captivated viewers with idol stars acting onscreen, unpredictable plot lines, and youthful love lines amongst the characters.
