Another award is in the bag for Song Joong Ki, just in time to celebrate the anniversary of his hit drama Descendants of the Sun which dominated the March airwaves last year in 2016. Song Joong Ki is the recipient of the 2017 Korean PD Award‘s Best Actor nod, an award that went to Ji Sung in 2016 for Kill Me Heal Me and in 2015 was won by Joo Won for Good Doctor. It’s interesting to see how the PDs view excellence in acting and I have no problems with any of the recent award winners, and in DotS it was Song Joong Ki’s performance that hooked me more than his costar Song Hye Kyo. I’m sure even Song Joong Ki will acknowledge that his DotS performance was nowhere his best work but combined with creating a winning and memorable character then it definitely deserves the kudos.
Both Ji Sung and Joo Won did well after their award wins, Joo Won went on to Yongpal while Ji Sung is rocking and rolling in Defendant.
