Namgong Min Wins First Daesang at the 2020 SBS Drama Awards for Stove League

The 2020 SBS Drama Awards are in the bag and boy was it a stuffed bag. The stars didn’t do the red carpet, only hosts Kim Yoo Jung and Shin Dong Yeop was masked and met the media. The attendees from presenters to winners were segregated in rooms in the back and only came out to accept awards so this ceremony got to go on without face masks or everyone wearing gloves, which made the MBC Drama Awards last night very interesting indeed. Namgong Min took home the Daesang for Stove League, and it’s telling that Han Suk Kyu didn’t even show up for the ceremony or get any lesser awards, though his cast of Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim 2 took home the most awards across the various categories. SBS tripled up on both Top Excellence and Excellence, and also gave it to multiple winners per category. Check it out below!
