The popular Turkish drama "Ezel" will also be competing against Colombia's "Broken Promises", South Korea's "Deep Rooted Tree", "The Princess' Man" and "Moon Embracing The Sun", Spain's "Gran Reserva – Vintage", China's "Home of People's Hearts" and the United States series "The Firm" for "Best Television Drama."
