It’s already the 12th annual Seoul Drama Awards, one of the lesser known of the many awards ceremonies Korea comes up with to laud its own creativity and prowess but this time it’s so lackluster to the point I think it should be renamed the Big Smile Park Duo Awards. The sole noteworthy occurrence at the awards, held on Thursday night at the KBS grand hall, was Park Bo Gum and Park Bo Young winning best actor and actress, respectively, for their most recent dramas.
His take on the Joseon romantic crown prince with ideals in Moonlight Drawn By Clouds was winning enough but really more notable for how high the ratings were for that drama which narratively deflated in the second half. And funnily enough the same can be applied to Park Bo Young for her win in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, but since I love them both for their overall charm and hardworking ethos this win can be applied for their greater drama oeuvre and that works for me. On a side note, oy vey was the fashion so uninspiring and duller than usual even for K-ent awards show standards.
