The Lists 2012: Best Supporting Actress

10 Jan

Here’s my list of my favorite supporting performances by actresses this year!

My attention span for Korean dramas are much much shorter than my attention span for American shows since they’re two different things. Hence, I don’t watch shows that have more than (+ or -) 20 episodes. In other words, I’m only here to watch short-term dramas.
