2020 Baeksang Award Nominations Out and Popular Dramas Crash Landing on You, The World of the Married, and When the Camellia Blooms Lead Drama Side

The 2020 Baeksang Awards held on June 5, 2020 will take place without an audience for the first time in its history but at least it will take place and be broadcast. The nominations were released today on May 8th and there are a few surprises of who was in and not in but mostly I am really pleased! The Best Drama nominations went to When the Camellia Blooms, Hyena, Crash Landing on You, Kingdom 2, and Stove League. I’m surprised not to see Itaewon Class, The World of the Married, and Hospital Playlist there but the latter hasn’t aired enough episodes so may be eligible next year. Best Actor nods went to Hyun Bin, Namgong Min, Joo Ji Hoon (for Hyena and not Kingdom), Kang Ha Neul, and Park Seo Joon.

Best Actress is STACKED oh wow even K-netz is saying this is the toughest race – Kim Hee Ae, Gong Hyo Jin, Son Ye Jin, Kim Hye Soo, and IU, and yes IU feels like the young outlier and I wouldn’t have nominated her this year for Hotel Del Luna as she really should win more for My Ahjusshi. I’m thrilled for so much love thrown at Crash as supporting roles there also got nods – Seo Ji Hye and Kim Sun Young both in Best Supporting Actress, and gruff Yang Kyung Won for Best Supporting Actor, and even Kim Young Min got a Best Supporting Actor nod except its for Married and not his role in Crash.
