Kim So Yeon Wins Daesang for Happy Home at 2016 Korea Drama Awards


The minor K-drama awards circuit churns on with the arrival of the 2016 Korea Drama Awards, held in connection with the Korea Drama Festival. Kim Soo Hyun finally passed the Daesang baton on, after winning last year for Producers and the year prior for You From Another Star. The winner this year was Kim So Yeon for MBC weekend drama Happy Home, which places her with previous weekend drama actress Daesang winners Lee Bo Young for My Daughter Soo Young and Kim Nam Joo for My Husband Got a Family. Actor-model Ahn Jae Hyun took the snark crown by winning Best Actor and Global Star awards for Cinderella and Four Knights. The fashion was also snoozeville, everyone looked good but totally by the looks, a mixture of high brow prom wear mixed with wedding finery.

Kim So Yeon Wins Daesang for Happy Home at 2016 Korea Drama Awards — 20 Comments

  1. LOL Ahn Jae Hyun for best actor for reaaal? Yoo Seung Ho should’ve won… I can’t believe Yoo Ah In and Kim Rae Won didn’t even get nominated.. Awards are such a joke these days..

  2. I am happy for Kim So Yeon. She is a very talented actress yet so much underrated in Korea. It’s a double happiness for her both in her career and personal life. But wth with Ahn Jae Hyun nabbing the Best Actor gong? I dont understand why the Korean awards couldn’t properly merited the deserving actors? Always will end up as a joke.

  3. Tbh, Ahn Jae Hyun did a pretty impressive job in Cinderella and 4 Knights. He totally stole the thunder from the male lead. For most of the awardees, I can’t say much since I didn’t even watch their dramas or don’t really know who they are.

  4. Can you believe jo jae yoon (the evil manager at urk, white hair) in dots won best actor, defeated lee seo jin from marriage contract? Jo jae yoon, not jin goo who second lead male. Wow..

  5. That’s an unpopular opinion, but for how little I watched “cinderella” I actually thought he was good – or maybe it’s just how his character was more comical and in tune with the show … I don’t know. Let’s just say he at least improved, moved on from Blood, and maybe we should too ? 😀

  6. I’ve watched Cinderella and four knights as well .. yes , ahn jae hyun did have improvements in his acting , but i’m sorry that improvement is not enough for him to deserve top excellence actor awards ….. oh dear … i just don’t know what to comment … if cinderella can be nominated , the drama awards should have nominate lee jun ki from scarlet heart ryo as well … he’s the one who deserves that award …..
