Lee Seung Gi, Lee Da Hee, and Sung Si Kyung Host the 2022 Golden Disc Awards with Many Acting Stars in Attendance as Singer-Actress IU Wins Best Song

This Saturday was the 2022 Golden Disc Awards in South Korea, after the spate of year end drama awards it’s a nice change to see the music side fete the notable achievements of 2021. Since I write about dramas and movies and only rarely follow the musical acts my interest in this ceremony and winners are only those who are also my acting faves. That means I am super happy that actress-songstress IU took home a big award Song of the Year and bonus points for Lee Do Hyun being the one to announce it. Too bad COVID-19 protocols meant they were never on the same stage or got the hand trophy hug but my Man Wol-Chung Myung heart was still full. Singer-actor Lee Seung Gi hosted the ceremony along with actress Lee Da Hee and singer Sung Si Kyung, and in attendance to present awards were a bevy of actors and actresses including Jung Woo Sung, Ahn Hyo Seob, Jeon So Min, Woo Do Hwan, Koo Kyo Hwan, and Jeon Jong Seo.
