On May 1, international content provider DramaFever had their first awards ceremony in New York City. The host was Arden Cho, the Korean-American actress who plays Kira Yukimura on "Teen Wolf." The special guests were actress Park Shin Hye, entertainer Kang Gary, Taiwanese star Chris Wang and several youtube celebrities, including k-pop and k-drama commentator Popo and the reviewers who call themselves the Nutty Nomads.

The awards also featured the music of Magnetic North, a band that is a youtube favorite. Park Shin Hye performed two ballads.

Several awards were presented with the winners determined by fan votes. As expected, "The Heirs" cleaned up. It won best drama, best actor for Lee Min Ho, a best actress award for Park Shin Hye, and a best bromance award for Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin, as well as a best eye candy award for Kim Woo Bin.

Lee Min Ho appeared in a televised clip thanking fans for his award and saying that he hoped to be in New York to accept an award if he should ever win again. "Kamsamnida," he said, and "I love you."

The Best Couple Not Meant To Be award was given to Park Shin Hye and Kim Woo Bin. The Best Couple was Krystal from f(x) and Kang Min Hyuk of CNBlue in "The Heirs."

The best bad guy was Jung Kyung Ho of "Heartless City."

The award for best cinematography went to "The Master's Sun."

Kang Gary of Leessang and "Running Man" accepted the best variety show award for the variety show he helps make so popular. He also accepted the award for best kiss. It was a kiss he gave to Song Ji Hyo on an episode of "Running Man." Their kiss won over the kisses exchanged by Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun in "You Who Came From The Stars."

The Nutty Nomads, vloggers who comment on k-pop, j-pop and k-dramas, gave out the award for the drama with the "most feels." That award went to "The Master's Sun" for a heartbreaking scene between Gong Hyo Jin and So Ji Sub.

The best ensemble-acting award went to the cast of "Flower Boy Next Door." In a filmed clip, Kim Ji Hoon, who played the flower boy living next door to Park Shin Hye, thanked fans for the award and apologized for not being there in person.

When Park Shin Hye accepted her award, she mentioned the Sewol ferry incident and asked those in the audience to pray with her for the victims and their families. After the awards and musical performances, Park Shin Hye met with fans and answered questions. She gave her fans hugs and presents, at one point tearing up because of fans' enthusiastic reaction. The awards ceremony in New York was the first stop on her world tour, which will include visits to Japan, China and Thailand.
