One of the best parts of hit drama Crash Landing on You was the North Korean soldier squad supporting male lead Hyun Bin, and the best of that bunch was by far gruff and proud Yang Kyung Won. He got a deserving Baeksang Award Best Supporting Actor nomination out of it and will know in two weeks whether he’s taking home the prize to cap off what has been an extraordinary career year. In addition to Crash Landing, he did a cameo in Hi Bye, Mama! and up next acting-wise is a supporting role alongside Song Joong Ki in the big budget sci-fi Korean movie Space Sweeper (Battleship Victory). New BTS pictures were posted last week with the two goofing off, clearly close pals after filming the movie together. K-ent especially Chungmuro always has room and recognition for genuinely talented character actors of which Yang Kyung Won is following in the footsteps of many a great before him.
He was one of the backbones of cloy and he also landed commercials. Like one shampoo cf with hyun bin. He can really have a good career in variety as well. I loved his and son ye jin’s fights???
both sjk and ygw acted together in arthdal, as village friends
Both are in the same agency.
He is absolutely a wonderful supporting actor in CLOY! What an amazing discovery!
Every single one in CLOY are amazing…ofc, Pyo Chi Soo stands out for his love-hate relationship with Se-Ri. He is the brother she never had. I hope he win Baeksang.
So happy for him, that he’s getting more and more work of offers! He was one of the highlights in CLOY and never fail to make me laugh when he’s on screen. His chemistry with both SYJ and HB was so great! Plus he is such a good singer too! Not surprising since he’s started as a musical actor. Was really impressed with his live singing in one variety show appearance post CLOY.
Awww so adorable haha!!
I hope he isn’t underutilized here as he was in Hi, Bye Mama. I thought his talent & potential were wasted in HBM.
He was really the scene stealer. I really enjoy his acting with the Cloy team. Especially SYJ. Lols. Both were so hilarious. Hopefully he will win. Btw, who are the other nominees???
Ps : joongki oppa looks so fine. Oppa fighting!
Well deserved nomination. I always support actors who are genuinely talented but underrated, not mainstream popular or acknowledged. Well done YKW. Finally getting recognition and CFs coming your way. Great to hear you can sing too.
Looks like sjk got new hair. He looks good after long time
Yes.. sjk is in good health.. i hope to see him genuinely happy again.. i always pray for his safety, good health and success. God bless sjk, yang kyung won and to the history dnc team????
I wish he win the supporting actor this time… He is a genius in acting..watched him in CLOY and Hi Bye Mama… I love his acting??
They both good actors wish them both well and good luck guy’s ?❤
