Park Hae Jin Wins the 2020 MBC Drama Award Daesang for Kkondae Intern in Socially Distanced Ceremony

I searched and there are no pictures of the actors and actresses attending the 2020 MBC Drama Awards with their face masks off so kudos for the production really sticking with proper protective gear and social distancing. Everyone even wore gloves too! Too bad they all decided to do only black and white for their outfits, like the fight with color in clothing continues on. The Daesang (Grand Prize) went to Park Hae Jin for Kkondae Intern, his first drama Daesang in any network so congrats but I would have given it to Shin Sung Rok for Kairos but alas the ratings still matters when the network doles out the prizes. MBC doubled up on Top Excellence and Excellence Awards, so there were winners from the Mon-Tues dramas and Wed-Thurs dramas for each category. Some of the pics were eyebrow raising, for example a female lead winning Top Excellence but the male lead only got Excellence, or the female lead not winning anything but the supporting female lead got an award. All in all MBC really didn’t produce any drama that got both ratings and critical acclaim so its onward to next year.

Jo In Sung Wins the Daesang at the 2014 APAN Star Awards

I posted two weeks ago about the nominees for the 2014 APAN Star Awards and how some choices were pretty legit while others strangely unfathomable. Pretty much the usual when it comes to acting awards in Korean drama entertainment. Last … Continue reading
