The annual Baeksang Arts Awards was held this Friday night in Seoul and the 2022 edition totally dropped some surprises and some expected wins. In a first, the winner of the Popularity Awards Junho and Kim Tae Ri also won the Best Acting prizes in their respective categories. Junho took home Best Actor Drama for The Red Sleeve Cuff and Twenty Five, Twenty One netted Kim Tae Ri Best Actress Drama. K-netizens seem most surprised Junho won over Lee Jung Jae for Squid Game, and that if he didn’t win for SQ then he would get the Daesang which one year went to Kim Hye Ja but here it was Squid Game the drama that won the television side Daesang. The Best Actress side I think was a toss-up between Kim Tae Ri and veteran Kim Hye Soo for Juvenile Justice. The Best Drama award went to D.P., SQ’s PD Hwang Dong Hyuk took the Best Director prize, and Best Script went to the writer for Juvenile Justice Kim Min Seok so the Netflix dramas definitely scored here. Cho Hyun Chul won Best Supporting Actor for D.P., Best Supporting Actress winner was Kim Shin Rok in Hellbound, it was Koo Kyo Hwan getting the win for D.P. as Best New Actor and his counterpart was Kim Hye Jun winning Best Supporting Actress for Inspector Koo.
