Baeksang Awards 2022 Voting Results are Out with Squid Game the Unanimous Pick for Daesang and Competition Fierce in the Male Lead Category with Junho Victorious

Oh I love seeing how the cheese is made! This also gives more legitimacy so here goes – the 2022 Baeksang Awards was last Friday and the judges have announced how the voting went. I’m only covering the television side, and the Daesang there went to the Netflix drama Squid Game and after the first round of voting in the second round it unanimous and decided easily. After that from the remaining dramas, it was also unanimous that the Best Drama would go to D.P. The tightest voting was in the Best Actor category which went to the final round where the three finalist votes went Junho (4), Lee Jung Jae (2), and Kim Nam Gil (1). In the Best Actress category, the final votes were Kim Tae Ri (5), Kim Hye Soo (1), and Han So Hee (1). Another big winner was Koo Kyo Hwan who took Best New Actor with unanimous votes from the first round while Best New Actress was a tight race with Kim Hye Jin (4) over Lee Yoo Mi (3), and I’m surprised to see Jung Ho Yeon with no votes since she trended the highest in Squid Game.
