Official Statement on K-drama Fizz Champion Status
In the days following the conclusion of Battle of the K-drama Stars, we announced that the winner of the tournament, Lee Joon-gi, would subsequently be named K-drama Fizz Champion and, therefore, expected to defend his title going forward. Although this news was met with mostly positive reviews, there were some who were not as pleased by the idea of the Battle of the K-drama Stars winner having to defend his title.
This is a matter we take very seriously since we believe K-drama Fizz is and will always be a site that provides a fun and positive experience for all. Our tournament, Battle of the K-drama Stars, was a rousing success with thousands of K-drama fans voting and showing their support for their favorite stars. It was an affair that we are very pleased with and it is our goal to continue to bring that same level of fun in the future with Battle of the K-drama Stars 2: The Women and, currently, the Best of 2021 Awards.
On the issue of the K-drama Fizz Champion, we feel it is important to clarify that the Championship series and the Battle of the K-drama Stars tournament are two separate matters. Lee Joon-gi, having won our tournament, will forever be K-drama Fizz's Top K-drama Star. It is his title, and it cannot be taken from him. As a reward for his win, we felt he deserved to become our first K-drama Fizz Champion, with the expectation that he would defend this title in future matches.
Having thought about it, however, we have to decided to do away with these plans, and start the process of crowning a new K-drama Fizz Champion from scratch. We feel that this is the best (and most just) solution, and it will give one K-drama star the opportunity to win the championship on his own merits. In the coming days and weeks, we will have more details on the K-drama Fizz Championship, including the participants, the championship rankings, and more.
But for now, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to share them with us in the comments section below. We will do our best to answer them.
