How come no one told me my baby Seol Chan won an award! My bad, Seol Chan is just a character, he’s not really real, despite Yong Jun Hyung delivering a stellar rookie actor performance in making him feel so very real. The Korea Drama Awards took place earlier this month on October 2nd and I honestly paid no heed and didn’t even bother to read the entire list of winners once I heard the ridiculous win of the screenwriter for the still airing Good Doctor nabbed an award. I wish he could have ended that drama with a meteor striking the hospital, just for kicks since his unfinished drama was already deemed the best writing. Turns out I should have checked the list because Yong Jun Hyung of Beast nabbed a best rookie actor award for his performance in Monstar (his co-winner in the category was Park Seo Joon for I Summon You, Gold). I was happy that Lee Bo Young bagged the Daesang for I Hear Your Voice and My Daughter Seo Young, not because I think she qualitatively deserves it, but because she’s delivering ratings monsters for her dramas and she’s toiled away for so many years it’s nice to see someone unassuming rise to the top. The rest of the winners are all silly IMO but who cares since this “award” was sponsored by the Korea Drama Festival. I’ll take Jun Hyung’s win as a popularity vote and that he definitely deserves. He was a big reason Monstar was so adorable and I hope he keeps on acting, hopefully sooner rather than later. His all-black suit paired with librarian glasses was pretty random, almost like he realized the award was that very evening and he rummaged through his closet for the least idol boy outfit he owns. He then put on glasses to old more formal, but then ruined the look when he forgot to change up his red-black shoes on his way out the door.
