KBS nominates (practically everyone) for acting awards

Like MBC before it, KBS has also released its list of year-end acting award nominees.

And while Hong Gil Dong (above) wasn’t the most prominent drama featured among the contenders (that would have to be the daily drama Mom’s Dead Upset, which brought in a whopping four nominations just in the Daesang category), it’s the one I watched and enjoyed in what I thought was a rather lackluster list. (Also! Kang! Ji! Hwan!)

The (very long) list of KBS actors is topped by a subset of nine Daesang contenders, which includes the aforementioned crowd of Mom’s Dead Upset veterans as well as Song Il-kook in the sageuk Kingdom of the Wind, Kim Sang-kyung in the sageuk Great King Sejong, and Kang Ji-hwan in the fusion-sageuk Hong Gil Dong. (A big sageuk year, no?)


 


Women in the Sun

 
Daesang contenders comprised five men, four ladies (non-winners are awarded Top Excellence honors):

Daesang (Actor)

I don't see love marriage or Single papa in love either. So it's really not everyone. Plus, not everyone who gets nominated wins. So I'm sure they'll chose wisely. Not that we can't already predict who will win.

Possible typo regarding Bae Jong-ok's nomination: I believe "Park Jung-geum" was the MBC drama she starred in. Maybe you meant "The World They Live In"? Speaking of which, I think she was quite excellent in it..probably the best role she's had in years. And congrats to all the nominees!

"My Precious Child" was a(n incredibly boring) 2004 KBS Daily Drama. The current Lee Tae Ran/ Kim Seong Su weekend drama is "My Precious You." (Fluent Korean speakers, is that a good translation of the title in Korean, or one of those cases where KBS just plucks an English title at random? ^^)

"Kim Jung-nan (You’re My Destiny)"
"Song Il-kook (Kingdom of the Wind)"

Ahhh, I love awkward situations! If the KBS Gods are kind/cruel, they'll have both of them win awards and give us reaction shots.

i personally am not enthusiastic about hgd, the script was silly/cliched in the latter half and i dont think kjh, though great, did anything to keep me sticking w/ it. he deserves an acting award though.

I actually think this is a decent list of contenders, at least those i thought should be nominated r all on the lists.

and how come everywhere else I read BJO is nominated for her marvelous role in World's Within?! (great drama btw)

What happen to Oh Ji Ho superb and outstanding performance as a Dad in Single Papa in Love. The chemistry between father and son are realistically acted with aplomb. Too bad there is no category for best duo performance.
I think Oh Ji Ho is still consider an underrated actor.

Oh Ji Ho should be nominated. He was very good, only that the rating for Single Papa In Love was low. His potrayal of a father was very convincing.

SINGLE PAPA IN LOVE: I hope little adorable Ahn Do-kyu (안도규) will win the best young actor award as he was so cute and natural in this drama.

I also feel that the wonderful and realistic on-screen father/son bond and chemistry between Oh Ji Ho and Ahn Do-gyoo deserves a special award, if there was one!

Come on, Korea/KBS, come out of the norm and be more creative with your awards.

To be fair, it was too bad there wasn't much onscreen chemistry between Oh Ji Ho and the two ladies in this drama.

On the whole, I feel that Oh Ji Ho is a very good actor, not one to be under-estimated and I am sure he knows this too, whether he is nominated or not.

Oh Ji Ho in Single Dad in Love should be considered to be nominated. He's doing very good as a single dad. and of course the chemistry between father and son was so amazing, so natural. unfortunetly there's no category for it.
Though the drama didn't have good rate, but it doesn't mean the actor can't be nominated. I give two thumbs for Oh Ji Ho and also for Ahn Do-kyu.
They're already as the winners for me.

Wow, Oh Ji Ho must be proud. His performance in Single Papa in Love was not left out and in fact were acknowledged by a lot of Korean fan drama fanatic.
Too bad the rating for that drama didn't go well as expected.

I, for one sincerely was touch by his first rate and excellent performance as a Dad. Glad to know Ahn Do-kyu who played his son was well received.

I hope Oh Ji Ho knows whether nominated or not he did one hell of an exceptional , superb performance.

ya finally the list is out :D

since I'm so crazy about Kingdom Of The Winds (IMO it's soooo great) I'm really happy about SIG and JJY's nominations.
to be honest, KJH was great in HGD... but I think SIG's performance in KOTW surpassed him... I get lot of emotions from SIG's expressions... he's so capable of showing his feelings just through his eyes... so I'm crossing my fingers for him to win the Top Excellence Award... and of course JJY was so awesome as Yuri... I mean SO AWESOME, so he does deserve the best actor award (although I hope oppa binnie wins too :D )

@ vieny:
"why is that choi jung won be a nominee for excelence award? i saw that her acting capability on kingdom of the wind as yoen is bad.."
although I love KOTW, but I have to agree w/ you... when I read her name in the nominations list I laughed... her acting is just OK... anyway, best luck for the beautiful SY ;-)
