Popular Hallyu Stars Win 10th Anniversary Entertainment Award in Japan

This picture is so odd from the standpoint of seeing three K-stars that one never would have imagined standing together at an awards ceremony. I finally figured out what award Kim Jae Wook was headed to Japan to receive at the Korean Entertainment 10th Anniversary Awards in Japan. He was getting the special Producer’s Choice award, which in layman’s terms means he’s so popular in Japan but doesn’t quit fit into one of the existing categories so one was made up for him. Heh. My last post was about him being snapped at the airport headed to Japan to accept his award, and I actually checked out the live broadcast and decided to write a bit about it. Also in attendance was Bae Yong Joon, making his first public appearance in nearly two years, there to accept the Best Actor award. Yoon Eun Hye made a quick trip to Japan for her Best Actress award despite being smack in the filming for her currently airing drama Marry Him If You Dare (Mirae’s Choice). Bae Yong Joon’s protege and Hallyu idol superstar Kim Hyun Joong was also there to receive the Best Solo Male Artist award and he also performed during the ceremony. This entire award feels like a popularity contest voted for by Japanese viewers, and it really was since votes accounted for the wins. There is no qualitative value to it but it also doesn’t aspire to be taken seriously so none of the wins bother me. It’s just a chance for the Japanese viewers to see all their favorite Korean actors, actresses, and singers on one stage. Check out some airport and awards night pictures below. For the awards show, Yoon Eun Hye managed a lovely 20s flapper era hairstyle to tame her frizzy perm and her dress was lovely, while the three male winner Bae Yong Joon, Kim Hyun Joong, and Kim Jae Wook all rocked perfect tuxes so I assume plenty of obasan hearts were breaking all over the place.

    • Now for Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo to be reunited too 🙂

      I couldn’t recognise him either. He has definitely gotten another nose job. I actually think he looks much better than his BBF/PK days.

      • I know! So happy to see this little reunion 🙂

        and yesssss wish YEH and Gong Yoo reunited hehe

      • he looks better now (for me) coz he’s gain some weight. he was so thin in BOF!

        and second pic of BYJ (with shades/glasses), I thought he was Hyung Joon hehe

    • He’s had work done on his nose. Seems to take away his previous pretty boy looks and he looks more manly. Miss his WGM days – so gorgeous then and so cute!

  1. both YEH and KJW look lovely. amma just wondering that it would be nice if those 2 got together for a drama? I am greedy when it comes to YEH ‘cos I want her with HB and now, KJW.

      • Due to age difference, maybe they can do something like ‘Pretty Woman’ storyline. Bae Yong Joon as Richard Gere and Yoon Eun Hye as Julia Roberts. Daebak K-Superstars in a Daebak K-drama!

  2. So pleased that I wasn’t the only one who thought “flapper” when I saw YEH’s great dress and hair – perfect for her, and she totally embodied the Twenties style. That irresistibly adorable acceptance speech was the icing on the cake! Just a shame the equally pretty KJW couldn’t have been her interpreter on stage. 🙂


    • He does. I like KHJ in Barefoot Friends. Dislike all that gunk on his face. Really doesn’t need it as he’s really damn good looking au naturel.

  3. I don’t know if any of you know who I’m talking about, but Kim Hyung Joon looks SO much like Ryan Higa (nigahiga on youtube) in that picture with the leather jacket: same hairstyle, same outfit… o_O I’ve always thought they looked similar, but now…

  4. Don’t you actually have to act in something to get an award for Best Actor?
    What did he win for? Was it a Lifetime Acheivement type of award?

    KHJ looks very handsome, very manly but very uninteresting, if that makes any sense. He looks like someone took all the handsome parts and put them on his face.
    Whereas KJW is hot as heck.

  5. I forgot that yeh happened in one screen with kjw, LOL glad to see CF’s reunion! Ah, also yeh and khj, both were BH’s CF star years ago, woah this is seem like reunion event for yeh,btw congratulation to all of them, I love them all <3 specially for kjw and khj, both looked so handsome and cool!

    jaewook oppa, please lead a new drama or movie soon, seeing you just as a ghost in who ar eyou really didnt satisfy me at all! please god, new project for him SOON!

    last, ah my crush ahjussi, it's gret too see him again, hope he is in full healty condition now and I still believe that someday he will return to small/big screen.
