Looks like the big three Korean networks are all set for the year end drama awards despite what has been unanimously labeled a lackluster year in both ratings and drama quality. There might be sterling outliers here and there but overall the audiences responded with a collective meh. If the networks couldn’t produce the quality then it might as well pack on the popular and pretty young things for the awards show glitter. All three networks have selected current year drama It girls to (co-)MC the event.
SBS is going for currently airing Pinocchio leading lady Park Shin Hye, who won big last year at SBS with Heirs. She’s paired up with veteran Lee Hwi Jae who will of course provide the yuks and snappy one-liners to liven up the proceedings. Over at KBS the co-MCs will be Park Min Young and Seo In Guk, the stars of both prime time dramas currently airing on the network in Healer and The King’s Face. Park Min Young is sure having a great acting comeback after a two year hiatus. Finally MBC is showing more love for Sooyoung after giving her the headlining My Spring Days as she’ll do MC duties along with Shin Dong Yup.
