2008 KBS Drama Awards
by | December 31, 2008 | 66 Comments

All right, we’ve seen MBC’s Acting Awards (met with much criticism) and SBS’s awards, so now we close out the broadcast station awards with the 2008 KBS Acting Awards.

No real surprise (or controversy) for KBS’s Daesang, awarded to veteran actress Kim Hye-ja for her role in the popular series Mom’s Dead Upset. Personally, I don’t know that Kim was outstanding in that drama specifically, but there’s no doubt she’s built up an impressive, long-running career and therefore this was probably more of an opportunity to give her a lifetime-achievement-ish Daesang.

Lifetime Achievement: Yoo Chul-joo, lighting director

Choi Su-jong presents with and Han Ji-min:

 
Song Il-kook (Kingdom of the Wind) wins a Top Excellence award:

 
I really don’t get this dress-changing habit that some actresses have gotten into (and this is mid-ceremony, not red carpet to awards show). But no doubt Choi Jung-won (Kingdom of the Wind) looks lovely in both of her choices:

 
Because the acting awards were not handed out to everyone nominated, some of my personal faves like Kang Ji-hwan (Hong Gil Dong) were shut out of acting honors and relegated to categories like Netizen and Best Couple. (But he’ll surely have a long career, so that’s not too much of a disappointment.) He accepts here with Yoon-ah and Hong Gil Dong co-star Sung Yuri, who looks wonderful.


 
Oh, Jang Geun-seok (Hong Gil Dong), you were SO CLOSE! After that atrocity on the MBC awards carpet, you came in a sharp (men’s) suit and so very nearly pulled it together. But what. is. with. the. hair. (I think it’s cute he’s hugging Kang Ji-hwan, though.)

 
Okay, here’s the thing. Sung Yuri (Hong Gil Dong) is stunning, and she’s got fantastic makeup and hair (meh on the dress, but the overall look is lovely). HOWEVER…

 
…she looks almost exactly like Park Min-young! The Hometown of Legends star came wearing almost the exact same silhouette and rocked the same hair and makeup styling.

 
I didn’t catch much of Mom’s Dead Upset, but I do think Jang Mi-hee was hilarious and fully deserving of the acting nod.

 
Eom Ki-joon and Bae Jong-ok won for The World They Live In, which did not take many honors but a least acknowledged its two stronger actors:

 
At first I was a little confused seeing East of Eden pair Han Ji-hye and Park Hae-jin together, but then remembered that they both had roles in KBS daily dramas: Han in Likable or Not, Park in As Much as Heaven and Earth:

 
This makes two straight nights of looking fabulous and happy for Lee Yoon-ji (Great King Sejong):

 
Kim Ji-soo‘s (Women in the Sun) chocolate-brown gown looks great against her skin tone:

 
The dress is marginally better than the black one she chose for MBC’s yesterday, but that’s not the big concern: If Choi Kang-hee looked like she was flying high at SBS’s awards, Lee Hana (Women in the Sung) looks like she’s been dosed with horse tranquillizers. Eyes unfocused, dull expression — what is going on here?

 
Yoon-ah cries as she accepts for her role in You Are My Destiny:

 
Kim Jung-nan (You’re My Destiny); Kim Yong-gun with Mom’s Dead Upset co-star Jang Mi-hee:

 
Child actor winners Lee Hyun-woo (Great King Sejong) and Shim Eun-kyung (Women in the Sun). I think Shim is a cute up-and-comer, but she’s shown a tendency to dress a lot younger than befits her, contrary to most young starlets trying to dress too old. She doesn’t look bad, but it’s odd seeing a 14-year-old in a little-girl dress and Mary Janes.

 
Yoon Hee-seok, winner for special one-act drama:

 
Lee Pil-mo (You’re My Destiny); Lee Won-jong (Great King Sejong); Yoo Chul-joo, lifetime achievement winner:

    I’m so disappointed that Kim Sang Kyung of Great King Sejong didn’t win anything! He always gets shut out at awards.

    I’m really happy for Lee Yoon-ji – she looks awesome as always.

  2. mimi

    no more drama like MBC awards!!

    KBS all ppl deserved to get that right

  3. noob

    WHOA! Sung yuri and Park min young look like twins!!!!! lol

  4. selva

    yes this and SBS’s awards were beautifuly done…
    I’m so happy about SIG winning the Top Excellence Awards (aja aja oppa).
    and YES JGS looks really great (compared to yesterday <_<)
    BTW dear javabeans… you forgot to add Choi Jung Won with Lee Ha Na in the Excellence in a miniseries… they both got the award.

  5. GreenFreak

    I guess the third time IS the charm. Out of the three award shows, most of them looked great at this one.

    I still got a chuckled in at Jang Geun-seok’s look. He was all man neck down, and then a 3 year girl with a little pony tail, and big glasses. hehe, too funny

    Kang Ji-hwan and Sung Yuri looks really good together! Too perfect… almost.

  6. flooooo

    kbs awards is nice too. I specially love the dress of yoon ah..lovely dress and very charming actress..
    I can t really say if one deserve an award more than another one cos I drop the quasi totality of all dramas ..hmm..not all..in fact i still watch kingdom of the wind because of Song Il Kook. Personally I prefer him in a king costum than in a suit..hehehehehe..so gorgeous..

  7. JiHwan

    It must of been really embarrassing for Sung Yuri and Park Min Young. They look almost identical. But of course Sung Yuri pulls it off with much more elegence. I’m diappointed to see that Kang Ji Hwan didn’t win anything but theres always next year. Jia-yo Hong Gil dong Cast!

    • 7.1 f

      JIAYOU!!! HONG GIL DONG IS THE BEST STORY FOR ME.. NO ONE CAN SURPASS THE EXCITEMENT BROUGHT BY THE PLOT… WE CAN’T SLEEP DUE TO THE TWISTS AND TURNS IN THE STORY LIKE WHEN THE SA YIN SWORD IS FAKE!!! WE ALMOST SHOUTED UNTIL WE NOTICED THAT ITS ALMOST DAWN AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS ASLEEP!! :D

  8. sonam

    Once you are over thirty you shouldn’t do fur, too much bling bling and big hair. It’s very aging and you end up looking like a dowager.

  9. jinkzz

    thanks for the recap javabeans…Yuri and Ji Hwan looks great…. still a little disappointed that ji hwan didnt win top excellence award but like you’ve said he has a long career ahead of him so it’s okay esp when he won best couple and netizen awards.

    hehehe…the HGD trio are all wearing black this time…last baeksang they all wore white.

  10. 10 fizzle

    Kim Ji Soo and Sung Yuri look fabulous as always. And I love that Park Min Young actually has some meat on her bones.

  11. 11 ed

    thank you javabeans. it’s nice to read recaps instead of watching hours of the shows (a luxury at the end of year!)
    somebody must be denying JGS entry at the doors: not outrageous enough! come back when you’re Fruity! (he’s turning into equivalent of odagiri jo, who shows up with outre ponytail/boho skirt-pants at awards:P )
    lol @ horse tranquilizer comment. is lee hana that big?
    kim ji-soo’s either born perfect or pimping her latest skincare/lotion line :D

  12. 12 Ariya

    I am really really ….. disappointed…why KJH didn’t win??????

  13. 13 Vieny

    A lil dissapointed coz my fav actor kang ji hwan didn’t win top excelent actor or popularity.you still have plenty of time ji hwan ssi!but still i love charming-good looking guy-song il gook anyway.congrats him!looking forward to see him in a modern drama even i like him more in saeguk dress;-) but why choi jung won?why her?was it only me saw her ordinary acting on KOTW?

  14. 14 Vieny

    Ji hwan look like a bit skinny than his present on blue dragon awards?is he recover from injury yet?perfect couple ji hwan-yuri;-)

  15. 15 robbo4

    Happy to see Yoona being recognized along with the always notable Lee Pilmo and his tv wife Kim Jung-nan (who, together, were the best characters on the show) holding up the hardware after surviving the extended haul that began with great promise and fizzled due insipid writing; The emotionally exhausting daily You Are My Destiny. Yoona and the cast deserved a better script, but I enjoyed watching each of the veteran and new actors who, no doubt, grew as tired as the loyal viewers of this promising story that somehow became a broken record about 2/3 or the way through.

    I’ll say it again….Lee Yoon Ji has to be the prettiest, least appreciated, actress on the scene. She is always a delight to watch either in performance or just smiling beautifully on the red-carpet each year on the way to pick up her annual award.

    After watching the opening music sequence, I knew the KBS award show was going to the best of the three. After watching Lee Yeon Hee singing in the MBC opening, I knew the MBC show was in trouble. Let’s hope KBS can get some winners this coming year. Boys Before Flower looks good. I hope this series does not disappoint. But how can you ruin this story when the plot has been written out and done twice?

  17. 17 ilovekangmae

    I found KBS (and SBS) awards better compared to the controversial MBC.
    So happy my choices got the awards:
    SIG for Top Male Excellence;
    JJY for Excellence (Miniseries, Actor) – Hooray for Yuri Taewang!
    and JGS for Popularity Award (Actor).

    JAVA: I agree…JGS was so close! His men’s suit was perfect (as compared to the other night) but the hair was like…uh oh. Lol.

  18. 18 heejung

    i hope jgs continues his improvement into 2009. a worthy new year’s resolution? :3
    i wish he’d let his hair down sometimes. it looked so cute in the beginning of that black engine mv from long ago. :)

  19. 19 ripgal

    Congratulations to all the winners! I think they all deserved their wins! ^^

    Altho my fav KJH didn’t win, I wasn’t exactly that disappointed. He was nominated along with SO MANY veteran actors, and for him to have been in the list with them, it’s already an honor… and plus, it’s not like he lost or anything. He got the fans’ votes! hehehhehe…

    Out of all the awards shows, I loved the outfits the celebs wore here the most. They all looked really glamorous and sophisticated… esp the ladies, I almost wished I could have all their dresses. Lee Yoon Ji was the best looking one of the night, and to mention the others, like SYR, Park Min Young and Choi Jung Won… they took away the spotlight for me..

    And for the guys, it’s always and has always been Kang JI Hwan…<333

  20. 20 anastassia

    Kang Ji Hwan did get anything for his acting? Huhu, kind of disappointed with that. But yeah. He has a long journey and one of the very promising actor out there.

  21. 21 angelsnow2u

    (* *) I happy about awards for Sung Yuri, She overcome Song Hye kyo to give it.
    but Kang Ji Hwan haven’t awards for his casting in drama HongGilDong.
    Mbc awards with a most of awards belong to East of eden, Kbs is not.
    I love Sung Yuri & with Awards she become a true actress. Waiting for you in drama ” The land of professionals” with Ji Sung.
    Kang Ji Hwan look old & thin. He is busy a movie with Kim Ha neul” 7 GRADE CIVIL SERVANT”. hOPING he will success with awards in next year 2009!

  22. 22 chula

    jang geun suk has baby mason hair xDDD

  23. 23 Anonymous

    @11, horse tranqs are really strong sedatives that some people abuse to get really wasted. i don’t think it’s a comment on her size.

    thank god the other shows (sbs kbs) weren’t as bad as mbc’s lame excuse of an awards just to kiss east of eden’s butt.

  24. 24 yoonah

    “I really don’t get this dress-changing habit that some actresses have gotten into (and this is mid-ceremony, not red carpet to awards show).”

    The only ones who do it are the award show MCs.

  25. 25 Elaine

    I am happy that both Kang Jihwan and Sung Yuri had an award. Although I was expecting that Kang Jihwan could get a major award for his good performance in Hong Gil Dong. Both of them truly deserved the best couple award for they really look good together. They really look stunning during the awards night. I just wish them both congratulation and I hope that they could do another good drama in the future. I am looking forward also to watching them in any upcoming dramas, be it in KBS or other production. More power………

  26. 26 Rainie

    I wonder why Lee Hannah was able to get an excellence award for her performance in Women in the Sun. She was never really good in that drama. Probably she herself could not believe why she won that award based on her expression when her name was called during the awards night. I thought Sung Yuri could have grabbbed the award for she really gave justice fore her role in HOng Gil Dong

  27. 27 meh

    some of these aren’t really deserving of the award they got…but the prize itself is a joke so whatever

  28. 28 chajjye

    the fashion is so much BETTER than MBCs…JGS improved tremendously but the hair…

    i like lee yoon-ji…she has this very elegant look about her…

    lee hana looked so daze when she was announced, that either she is too shocked or yeah, she’s somewhat wasted. or maybe she wanted to celebrate new year’s elsewhere.

    there were some who could do with some wins as well…i mean, where is lee ji hoon’s award??? :P

  29. 29 jamie

    Congratulation to the gorgeous kim jisoo!!! Hurray…

  30. 30 jamie

    I’m a fan of kim jisoo..when i heard that she won the top excellence “actress”,i was so so so happy..hahaha….

  31. 31 jackywu

    Lee Ha Na wasnt good in Woman in the Sun, shocked beyond belief she can win so was the other winner Choi – their acting very mediocre.
    Lee Tae Ran and Song Hye Kyo are better actresses who deserved to win.
    Is it true in KBS awards – no presence no winner award?

  32. 32 gia

    they all look gorgeous

  33. 33 rox

    I’m so disappointed that Kang J Hwan did not win any major award. Though I also love Song Il Guk in Ju Mong, I don’t think he has the same acting depth as Kang Ji Hwan.

    Still… Congratulations to KANG JI HWAN for winning the Netizen and Best Couple Awards. Hope he bags more awards, in rightful recognition of his stellar acting skills, this 2009.

    Jiayou KANG JI HWAN!!!

    JGS: what’s with the hairstyle? he reminds me so much of a takeshi’s castle host of long ago.

    Dramabeans & robbo4, totally agreed. I’m so happy for her that she won. A brilliant, beautiful but yet-to-be-deservingly recognised actress. but slowly & surely things are getting brighter for her. God bless her!

    I watched KBS Daesang Drama Award and I have to say that I’m really dispointed when Kang Ji Hwan didn’t win the Daesang for actor, I turned the TV off when they announced the winner of this award! May be It was because I hoped to much! After all, thid year, he got a lot of improvements in his career, last year, he won the Award for best actor in mini-drama section, and best couple too! (man, that guy, he look good with all of his co-stars!), but the rating of his drama (which I really really really love) Capital scandal was so poor, about 7,7% in average. this year, he received a lot of fan-vote-award which mean his popularity raised well. And he did receive a lot of award-by-judge for his acting in his movie Movie is movie too. May be I should calm myself down and wish him a happy new year, hoping he’ll improve more and more! I really hope he’ll sucess with his movie with Kim Ha Neul 7th Grade civil servant and his new drama Triple (In which may be he’ll have to fight against 2 guys over a girl and in the end, he’ll never get her).

    • 35.1 f

      YEAH!! WHAT’S WRONG WITH JURY’S EYES!! WHY THEY CAN’T SEE KANG JI HWAN’S HEART FELT ACTING!! I REALLY REALLY LOVED HIM BEING WAN IN CAPITAL SCANDAL AND I SUPER LOVE HIM AS HONG GIL DONG!!!!

  36. 36 tuswit

    i agree KJH should have won an award! congrats to all the winners!

    I was expecting that Kang Jihwan could get a major award for his perfect performance in Hong Gil Dong, I’m so disappointed to see that He didn’t win neither top excelent award nor popularity award, I wish he would win next year.
    Of Course He has a long long journey to win everything.
    Here is a poem I changed it 4 K.i.s.s

    … Wherever you are, Let it be so
    the Sky is yours
    the Window, Thought, Air, Love Earth are yours
    What Signifies
    if mushrooms of Nostalgia
    sometimes grow?

    Original Form in Persian (My native Language)
    هر كجا هستي ، باش
    آسمان مال توست
    پنجره ، فكر ، هوا ، عشق ، زمين مال توست
    چه اهميت دارد
    گاه اگر مي رويند
    قارچ هاي غربت ؟

    Jia-yo Kang Ji Hwan

    happy for HGD cast & Women In The Sun cast.

  40. 40 sarang

    i give my applause to jgs for changing his fashion preference as compared to the “dead-animal” accessory he had the previous night. whoever told him to change into something “normal”, thank you!

    the hair, well, let’s just give that as a freebie…hehehe!

    love him!

    nice job kjh and to the other casts of hgd. you did great!

    I am just so happy to be able to watch the 2008 KBS Drama Awards. Though there was no subtitle. I would say who ever get to play a part in any of the drama shown this year were the lucky one and who ever get to receive any of the award well deserve the award. of course there are other of my favourites that i wish they can get the awards too…..Above all, thanks to all the stars that put up the good performance in the dramas and i get to enjoy them every day. THANK YOU! and may all continue the good work .

    ——————————————————————————————————–
    Add me to the fan club of Lee Yoon Ji. She is so attractive.
    I watched the Daily Drama “Pure 19″ and 1/3 way through the series, my attention switched from the main actress to her. Her acting is very charismatic!

    Like Kang Ji Hwan, she is only 24 and still have a long journey to win.

    I like Jang GS’s hairdo. Cute.
    Yes, definitely better than wrapping a dead animal around his neck. Too gigolo looking. At his age, he is entitled to create crazy look.

  43. 43 belleza

    Notes on show . . .

    Lee Yoon Ji: Yeah, agreed on previous comments about LYJ. I was watching her also on reruns of “By My Side” and she’s good there.

    Missed out MBC-style Controversy Opp 1: Disappointed that Yoona didn’t do the Nobody dance with the rest of YAMD crew. I mean, c’mon KBS, that was a big, fat opportunity to start another SNSD vs. Wondergirl war right there!!

    Missed out MBC-style Controversy Opp 2: Disappointed that we didn’t get a reaction shot of Song Il Guk after Kim Jung Nan won. (Backstory: They were together for about 5 years. The rumor was that SIG’s mom didn’t approve of her, and so they couldn’t get married. After all, he belongs to an important family . . . Within less than 2 years, he was married.)

    Okay, That Was Awkward 1: Oh Lee Ha Na — it’s just so painful to watch you up there. You do this at EVERY Awards’s show! It’s like you’re terrified that ninja netizens from the crowd are going to jump up and stomp you! You’re good enough; you’re smart enough, and doggnot people like you Hana!!

    Okay, That Was Awkward 2: Choi Jung Won winning Best Actress with Lee Ha Na. This would be roughly the minor, minor equivalent of EastOfKangMae gate, but Ha Na’s total meltdown onstage seemed to distract people from the obvious “eh?!?” here. I don’t think Choi Jung Won even thought she deserved to win that one. She didn’t seem happy or sad about winning it.

    Okay, That Was Awkward 3: Park Hae Jin and Han Ji Hye. Uhhh. Bringing the dark, dark cloud of East of Eden to the happy KBS.

    “This is what I mean about Jang Geon Seuk”: When Jang Geon Seok, who was presenting up there, realized that he won the award. He smiles that goofy, silly smile, hunches over to make sure that “oh wow, really?!?!”, and looks like he wanted to tackle a buddy onstage. That kind of unchecked, silly, sweet (and oddly volatile ) wiriness has been MIA in his drama roles since Jang Geon Seuk decided to play a brooding, serious “Man.” It’s so self-conscious, so constipated, that it’s hard to convey to JGS non-watchers of the unassuming vulnerability that he conveyed in his teenage days. You see all the time when he’s not acting. And yet that is where his acting can grow.

    Hong Gil Dong Power!!!: Not only did Kang Ji Hwan, Sung Yu Ri, and Jang Geon Seok consistently get the loudest pops of the night. Even the character actors from HGD were getting fangirl love all night.

    Chae Rim is Awesome: Why? Because she was the only lead actor or actress that had the gumption to appear, even though her show did not do well.

    Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo Not So Awesome: World That They Live In actually got a lot of love in the awards department. And it would have gotten a lot more had the main couple actually showed. Eh.

    Lee Duk Hwa is Pimp: I thought Lee Duk Hwa did a terrific job as the male MC of the show. But, after mulling over that Lee Duk Hwa and Choi Jung Won had been in a show together, I remember that Lee Duk Hwa and multiple award winner Jan Mi Hee were also cast together as lovers in another show (with Sung Yu Ri.) He also played the President opposite Chae Rim in Rivals, and will play a general in Empress Chu Chu. He gets around!!

    Chae-Si Ra vs. Song Il Guk Archery Battle!!: The Emprress Chu-Chu promotion bit (probably that night’s highlight for me) was all sorts of Jumongsome, and a truly imperious Chae Si-Ra showed off her “draw pose”, which was as awesome as the poster. But my favorite bit was the banter between Chae Si Ra and Choi Jae Sung. That gave me goosebumps.

    Don’t Be a Stranger: I was happy that Jung Jin Young (great in the movie Sunny) and Kim Ji Soo won, mostly because you never know when either might do TV again. You can sense genuine firiendship between Jung Jin Young and Song Il Guk. When SIG mentioned that he felt he didn’t deserve this award, you can tell that he was paying respect back to Jung Jin Young. And Jung Jin Young in turn expressed sense of appreciation over the hard work involved in producing a TV show like Kingdom. Even when he plays a fried chicken deliveryman, he’s absolute love. I’m not really sure why Kim Ji Soo took the Women in the Sun part. When you think of KJS *now*, you assume she’d only come back to do something like East of Eden (thank God!), Le Dolce Vita or a prestige sageuk. It must feel good knowing her show was the best performer for KBS, opposite Iljimae, no less.

    Not As Fun as MBC: Even when the MBC Awards show goes nutso like this year, it’s usually the one I prefer. You get a stronger vibe from the audience, and sometimes sheed happens. Sheed almost never happens on KBS. Alas.

  44. 44 Danika

    Best couple award should have been Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin…They were a beauiful match in World’s Within.

  45. 45 atsirk

    KANG JIHWAN SHOULD HAVE WON THE TOP EXCELLENCE AWARD…

    Argh…nonetheless, I still love him :)

  46. 46 This Is Me Posting

    Just want to go on record saying Lee Ha Na was the best part of Women of the Sun: She was easily the best actress on the show and pretty much the only thing that kept me watching this cliche ridden Korean soap.

    Also, a piece of advice for Kim Ji-soo: I don’t speak Korean, and even I can tell you’ve got a terrible lisp. Its called “take a voice and speech class,” lady.

  47. 47 belleza

    “Also, a piece of advice for Kim Ji-soo: I don’t speak Korean, and even I can tell you’ve got a terrible lisp”

    Yup. Ji-Soo’s lisp is about the size of YEH and early Sung Yu Ri COMBINED. :D (Kinda adorable, though, since it kinda humanizes her ice-queen image.)

    I love her recent work. I just wouldn’t cast her as a Queen in a sageuk due to her sometimes sloshy enunciation. :D

  48. 48 princes

    hi every body
    im from iran
    i love song ll-kook
    im very happy because he wins a Top Excellence award
    he is the best
    he have a lot of fans in iran
    bye

  49. 49 elektra8

    i think Song hye kyo and hyun bin should have awards too coz they did a great job in The World they Live in..they deserve to win..

  50. 50 Moonlight Warrior =]

    Totally agree with Elektra8. They should had been one of the best couples up there! HELLO! Their chemistry was the best! Sigh! Man, idk I don’t really like You are my destiny. Oh wells.
