2020 KBS Drama Awards Gives Veteran Actor Chun Ho Jin the Daesang for Weekend Hit Once Again

The 2020 KBS Drama Awards was a free for all as well, and a mix of face masks, social distancing, and still walking the red carpet. The bulk of the awards went to the various cast members of weekend drama Once Again and daily drama Homemade Love Story, as both were the sole shining ratings lights for the network. Daddy Chun Ho Jin of Once Again took home the Daesang, and the drama also gave a popularity resurgence for Lee Min Jung and Lee Sang Yeob, as well as vaulting to new levels supporting actors Lee Cho Hee and Lee Sang Yi. It wasn’t the best year for KBS but I really don’t want to Big Three networks to throw in the towel, there isn’t ever going to be a network that only produces successful dramas but the competition and variety is what makes it possible to find hits and also keep improving.

2020 KBS Drama Awards Gives Veteran Actor Chun Ho Jin the Daesang for Weekend Hit Once Again — 4 Comments

  1. So happy to see Kim So Hyun presenting with Jang Dong Yoon! My Macaron Couple ?
    So Hyun looks beautiful even with a mask on, too bad she didn’t appear in the red carpet ?

    • Yeah, kinda ironic because JDY attended KDA 2019 and he has a cast on his left hand. 2020, he attended KDA and he has a cast in his left arm. My poor baby JDY hope he gets well soon.

  2. So many winners… I wonder how they could give an award to Forest and Welcome… They were really bad…

    At least, Memorials won for the best couple (like a lot of other couples…). It was one of my favourite drama in 2020! So funny and consistent until the end.
