MBC held its 2010 Drama Awards yesterday, and I can’t let the year end without a shout out to Dr. Baek Seung Jo and Nurse Oh Ha Ni. Our Playful Kiss newlyweds showed up at a rather tame and comparatively lackluster event (since MBC was the ratings laggard behind SBS and KBS all year).
Kim Hyun Joong took home a Netizen Popularity Award (alongside Han Hyo Joo), and Lee Tae Sung took home a New Actor Award (what now? – the boy has been acting for years! – oh right, this is the same network that gave Kim Nam Gil a Best New Actor award for Queen Seon Deok, so I get their reverse logic here).
Min Min (Jung So Min) was nominated in the Actress category but didn’t win. And the PK couple lost out to the Pasta couple for Best Couple of the year, which I can’t say I disagree with, since Lee Seon Kyung and Gong Hyo Jin was my second pick behind the Holiday couple for my personal fave couple of the year. Now that we’ve got the hardware discussion out of the way, let’s talk about fashion, shall we? Min Min, my darling, you are seriously giving me palpitations. And a urge to go all snip snipping away at your dress.
On on hand, you are so naturally radiant and gorgeous, even wearing a potato sack your natural beauty shines through. But you have a lovely curvy figure, and that blue-whitish goddess dress with all those extra folds and drapes does nothing for your figure. It weighs you down, and hides your luscious curves and makes it look bigger. Don’t ask me how, that dress is not working. Burn it when you get home, okay? BUT, you still look lovely, my dear.
Hyun Joong, on the other hand, is working for me big time. Love the hair, love the tux, love the smile – boy is handsome and can do no wrong at awards shows for me. Unlike Jang Geun Seok, who I have to hear that the coast is clear before I will check out a picture of him at any awards show (though his look at the 2010 KBS Drama Awards rivals Kim Hyun Joong for young and rocking it in a tux).
A fond farewell for the sweetest young couple of 2010 – Seung Jo and Ha Ni. I look forward to both Min Min and Kim Hyun Joong’s upcoming projects, whether together again or individually.
