The upcoming Asia Artist Awards, one of those hybrid and trendier awards shows that bring together actors and idols, is all set for early December. The voting was open the last month for the popularity awards and for the actor/actress that won an award there were winners in both awards: The RET Popularity Award and the U+IdolLive Popularity Award. For RET, Kim Sun Ho and Song Ji Hyo won, along with EXO, TWICE, CL, and Lim Young Woong. In the U+IdolLive, Kim Sun Ho and Jung Ho Yeon won as actor and actress, and singing side winners are BTS, Blackpink, IU, and Kim Young Woong. IU won as a singer and not as an actress so that’s why I put her with the idols. The ceremony will also have participants from overseas in the other entertainment industries when it airs next month and fans should expect plenty of live performances so that’s a nice treat heading into the holidays.
