  1. Congrats to PEB she completely deserved this. She’s supper talented and hard working,it was a slow steady rise from child actress. Om other news WHO DRESSED SOME OF THESE PEOPLE? I don’t even know men’s wear but some of those suits made me sad. This is supposed to be one of the biggest nights in k-ent.

    • I didn’t even recognize him! I was like, he kinda looks like JWS but not? And it turned out, it was!! What happened to him?? He’s usually so dapper!

  3. @koala, PEB is the second youngest winning ACTRESS for baeksang Daesang TV. Youngest individual winner is Hyun Bin for Secret Garden when he was 29.

  4. The whites and especially beiges wash the actresses out. They look like they’re wearing nightgowns and bridal dresses.

    Bae Doona was hands down best dressed.

  5. Congrats to all the winners, very deserving! Now watch the salty people claim Baeksang is “rIgGeD” and “nOt LeGiT” because their faves didn’t win or even got nominated 😂😂😂

  6. Happy for Song Hye Kyo, Lim Ji Yeon, and Park Eun Bin! ❤️
    Love it when SHK mentioned Yeon Jin in her speech lol 😂
    Wish Park Sung Hoon won Best Supporting though, but they’re all deserving

  7. not a fan of suzy or song hye kyo, but i’m happy they finally proved that they’re more than just pretty faces. i mean, who cares if it took years for song hye kyo to win and suzy to be nominated? it actually shows that not everyone improves in the same pace and everyone has different peaks in their career, some peak earlier, some later (like shk), and that’s okay.
    anyway, i’m just happy for all these beautiful, talented women (including the other nominees), they’re all queens in my book 👍

  8. Koala, the youngest individual Daesang (TV) winner in the history of Baeksang is actually Kim Hee Ae who won it in 1993 when she was 26, followed by the 29 y.o. Hyun Bin who received the award when he was serving in the Marines in 2011, and then finally, followed by the 30 y.o. Park Eun Bin this 2023.

    Anyhow, congratulations to all the winners! It’s heartwarming because I’ve just witnessed the entire K-drama community sharing the same joyful sentiments and celebrating PEB’s win, especially the fans of the former child actors and actresses who were deeply moved by her acceptance speech where she said her younger self shouldn’t give up on her dreams of being an actress because she may receive a Daesang one day ㅡ and she finally achieved that dream. Beautiful and satisfying.

    May PEB’s victory serve as a motivation to her fellow child stars to trust the timing as they keep on honing their skills because if they’re really good, doors will open for them no matter how difficult the industry has become. Their talent and perseverance will definitely be recognized at the right time.

  9. As as I’ve said in my previous posts few articles down is that Best Actor will go to Lee Seung Min, Best Actress to Song Hye Kyo and Daesang to Park Eun Bin. All three are deserving because of the acting skills they have shown.

    No need to mention when they got the award koala, by that premise, child actors will have about the same period if you compute their child acting days like park eun bin, 20+ years until they got their own awards.

    I agree about the dresses, why can’t they wear bolder gowns in a prestigious korean award event ala oscars? I actually like kim heora with her side slits bare

  10. THE SONG HYE KYO RENAISSANCE IS REAL!! To go from the career low abomination that was nwabu to such a wildly popular show AND win the top honour for her performance :,)) she’s gotten soo much flak for her acting and her personal life over the years so I’m really happy to witness this amazing comeback <3

  11. Lee Sung Min! I am very happy for him, he carried that show exclusively on his shoulders. It was a masterclass in acting.

  12. Well deserved Daesang for PEB , i watched her acting in various projects since years and she did very well in each one even when she had a little part . That’s what i call a real born actress .

  13. Suzy’s dress embodied to some extent the va-va-voom that was missing in formal fashion in K-ent. It looks like she tapped into her inner Black Swan, and speaking of which, it sort of reminded me of the web novel advert she did recently in which her heroine decides to become “selfish” in her rebirth.
    LOVE Kim Hieora’s black dress with the slit sides and white bows (and her glowing smile topped it off)!! It looks like Audrey Hepburn’s dress in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with a playful twist.
    Kudos to Roh Yoon-seo’s stylist for not dressing her in pink or beige or white or black. It makes her stand out more in the group of young actresses. Jung Woo-sung would have looked better if his pants were in the same color as his dinner jacket.

  14. Congratulations to Song Hye Kyo for winning the best actress. I love her and Glory, she did very good. Omg she is so beautiful.

    • SHK’s dress looks like curtains. The gauze kind. PEB reminds me of Encanto and not in a good way. Tang Wei like a bed skirt. Overall just bad, bad, bad fashion choices. From boring to just absolutely terrible.

      • True. Winners were all deserving of their awards but the fashion was just plain boring. All those high-end brand sponsorships and endorsements yet nothing to show for at awards shows. Fashion just keeps getting worse by the years.

      • I agree, for someone who’s supposed to be a fashion icon, she sure has such bland red carpet outfits. Not just her, everyone pretty much had such boring outfits. K celebs need to get out of the safe zone and go a little bolder with their fashion choices.

      • I don’t think any Korean actress can be considered a fashion icon except maybe Bae Doona and Gong HyeJin.

        Korean style is driven by the kpop stars. I swear actors dress for the Korean red carpet with the goal of fading into the background, while everywhere else in the world celebs dress to get noticed and become trending.
