The 2018 Usual Drama Suspects Lead the Nominations for the 2018 Seoul Awards

I feel like I can start copying and pasting from my last two drama award nomination posts since it’s the same few drama names, actors, and actresses making the list. The 2nd annual Seoul Awards assembled by Sports Seoul released the list of nominees at the end of last week and this one gives the Daesang to dramas rather than the individual. Up for the Daesang are the four dramas Money Flower, My Golden Life, Shall We Kiss First, and My Ahjusshi, with the very notable missing of high profile Mr. Sunshine. But the drama did slot in three nominations in the acting category with Lee Byung Hun for Best Actor, Yoo Yeon Seok for Best Supporting Actor, and Kim Tae Ri for Best New Actress. Joining Lee Byung Hun in the Best Actor category are Lee Seon Kyun for My Ahjusshi, Jo Seung Woo for Life, and the surprise nod for Kam Woo Sung in Shall We Kiss First. The Best Actress ladies are Kim Sun Ah for Shall We Kiss, Son Ye Jin in Pretty Noona Buys Me Food, Kim Nam Joo as Misty, and Shin Hye Sun for both My Golden Life and Thirty But Seventeen, leaving out Lee Bo Young for her critically acclaimed role in Mother. The full list is below and it’s on the short side due to four noms per category. Continue reading
