46th Baeksang Arts Awards

The 46th Baeksang Arts Awards were held on March 26 in Seoul, which is one of the biggest awards ceremonies in the industry, in both television and film. Only, this year I’ve got to say my reaction at the winners was mostly: WTF, Baeksangs?

I understand some of the awards. Go Hyun-jung (above) winning Daesang (the Grand Prize) on the television side for Queen Seon-deok, yeah. It was either going to be her or Lee Byung-heon, in my opinion, so it was also understandable that they threw Best Drama to IRIS since it didn’t garner the Daesang — even if I think IRIS is totally not deserving from a purely artistic standpoint. (If you were expecting Chuno to sweep, I’m actually expecting to see it more next year, with Baeksangs being a little behind the current television landscape. Even though Chuno did win for scriptwriting. Now, if it misses next cycle I will be confused.)

I even understand how Jang Geun-seok won a popularity award in film (Itaewon Murder Case) even though you’d think his wildly popular television drama You’re Beautiful would have been a better fit — but the television popularity award went to Lee Seung-gi, understandably. But Yoon-ah for popularity for Cinderella Man? I know I know, that’s a netizen vote and Yoon-ah has her SNSD fanbase, and she led Yoon Eun-hye and Han Hyo-joo in the votes… but given the overall dreariness of Cinderella Man — and the fact that the same fanbase couldn’t buoy that drama’s low ratings — an award for that role just seems weird.

Then there’s Newcomer winner Kim Nam-gil, who had a breakthrough performance in Queen Seon-deok, but he is most certainly NOT a newcomer. Dude made his official industry debut in 2003! He had significant (if supporting) roles in at least five dramas and has at least seven film roles to his credit. Yes, this is a way to give him an award without challenging Lee Byung-heon for Top Excellence, but come now.

Awards are often heavily political, but I didn’t think Baeksangs would produce such puzzling results. I mean, Queen of Housewives for best DIRECTING?

Boo, Baeksangs, BOO.

Kim Ah-joong (Accidental Couple) and comedian Lee Hwi-jae were the MCs for the event. She looks pretty, if a little bridal.

 
Ha Ji-won (My Love By My Side) won for playing the wife of a dying man, though she also had another big film in the past year, Haeundae, which picked up awards in other categories. I love how she always looks sexy and chic on red carpets.

 
Ha Jung-woo (Take Off) has had a string of hits, and here he is with co-star Kim Ji-suk (who looks crisp in white) and film director Kim Yong-hwa. I’m surprised at how well Kim Ji-suk pulls off the white suit, actually, given that it could so easily look cheesy. I’m actually a fan of his hair, too.



 
Choi Kang-hee (Aeja) is either pouting or gaping in the majority of her photos, which makes it hard to find nice shots. The uniform beige color sort of washes her out, especially without strong makeup, but she will cut you with those fingernails.

 
Jang Geun-seok (Itaewon Murder Case) may be wearing what looks like a sparkly smoking jacket, but considering his red carpet history this is decidedly a win. So cute.

 
Jo Ahn (LIfting King Kong) picked up a newcomer award. Not so hot about the dress (it’s cute) but I love her makeup. Pretty and pink.

 
The hair, the hair! (The bowtie! The cuffs!) Okay we get it, you’re a rockstar and you don’t care that the noonas find you adorable, Lee Min-ki (Haeundae).

 
Kang Ye-won, Lee Min-ki’s Haeundae co-star, sparkles in her dress, but it reads kind of matronly to me.

 
Love this girl. Park Bo-young was last year’s newcomer winner for Speed Scandal and she’s adorable here in a sweet pink confection of a dress, although I swear I’ve seen this dress at another red carpet.

 
On the TV side, it’s no surprise that Go Hyun-jung was the big winner; this makes two Daesangs for her portrayal of ambitious villain Mi-shil in Queen Seon-deok.

 
Han Hyo-joo (Dong Yi) has this way of looking elegant with a hint of awkwardness, and I mean that as a compliment, since it gives her a fresh sort of appeal. I think it’s her slightly gangling limbs; in a few shots she looks like a startled deer. A polished, glam, startled deer. I do think the proportion is a little off in the dress, though.

 
Kim Nam-gil (Queen Seon-deok), you sexy bastard. Check out that look in his eye in Pic #1.

 
The kelly green is a pretty shade, but I was perplexed about the bright bubblegum-pink lips until I saw the full-body shot for Kim Nam-joo (Queen of Housewives). But matching or not, coordinating lips-to-shoes does not excuse the clash in my book. (I would’ve loved this look in a black, silver, or even gold shoe.)

 
Lee Byung-heon (IRIS) always looks sharp and confident. I sorta feel like they gave IRIS the win to make up for throwing the Daesang to Go Hyun-jung instead of Lee.

 
I suspect some will hate it, but I absolutely loved this tangerine/sherbet color on Sohn Ye-jin (Personal Taste). I love the color more than the shape, though.

 
Sohn’s latest co-star, Lee Min-ho (Personal Taste), is looking a lot more comfortable on the red carpet. Remember how Lee Min-ho was so awkward and stiff-looking last year in his plain suit and with the red-carpet fall? Much more put-together this time around! Our baby’s growing up.

 
Lee Min-jung (Smile) is so pretty. I’m not a fan of the dress, which I don’t think does much for her, but the overall look is nice.

 
Lee Seung-gi (Brilliant Legacy) looks okay if kind of plain. He did win a popularity award, so yay for him.

 
Here’s the thing about Moon Geun-young (Cinderella’s Sister). Sometimes “eat a sandwich” comments are snarky and bitchy and not made with a helpful spirit, but with Moon, I really really don’t like seeing her so thin because it looks scary and wrong. It’s particularly pronounced with her because, as the Nation’s Little Sister, we’ve all seen her growing up over the past decade and we know she wasn’t always so skeletal. This makes me sad.

 
Hwang Jung-eum (High Kick Through the Roof) has this tendency to make Scary Eyes. She’s one degree below its more-fearsome cousin, Crazy Eyes. Despite that, I like this look on her, even though I keep seeing it as a ’70s-inspired jumpsuit rather than an evening dress.

 
Seo Woo (Cinderella’s Sister) is going for pretty and sweet, and I’m not a fan of the dress — it looks sloppy with the asymmetry — but I can see that she’s going with the cute, innocent image of her upcoming Cinderella character. And what better place to promote the image than the Baeksangs a week before your premiere, right?

 
This has been a huge year for Shin Se-kyung (High Kick Through the Roof) and I think this gown is a fab choice for her. I would’ve made her the pic at the top, only she didn’t win anything, and you can’t argue with Daesang! She still seems shy on the red carpet, but I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of her in the future.

 
Uh, WTF So Ji-sub? This is like Gu Hye-sun coming to an award dressed in Jan-di gear. I get that he came in character for his Korean War drama Road No. 1, which he is currently filming — but for the Baeksangs, really? The drama doesn’t air for three more months, so promoting it here seems premature. Perchance he came directly from set and had no chance to change? (Wishful thinking?)

 
I love this simple, strong look on Sunwoo Sun (Will It Snow For Christmas). It really works with her height.

 
Daniel Choi is here with his High Kick Through the Roof co-star, Yoon Shi-yoon:

 
Yoon-ah (Cinderella Man) sort of reminds me of a Barbie Doll, especially in the last photo. Which I don’t mean as a bad thing.

 
There was a good amount of pink on the red carpet, and Hong Su-ah‘s (My Precious You) is one of my favorites.

 
More pink from Jang Hee-jin (Tae-hee, Hye-gyo, Ji-hyun):

 
Joo Jin-mo (Dream) is looking rather casual, isn’t he? It’s like he’s here for a business meeting, not an awards ceremony.

 
Uhh… I get what Lee Chae-young (Wife Returns) was going for, I really do. I just don’t like it. Maybe for a fashion show?

 
Joo Sang-wook (Queen Seon-deok, Accidental Couple) goes for a simple, classic look:

 
And last but not least, here’s rocker-actor Jung Yong-hwa (You’re Beautiful)!

Nothing really stood out this time, IMO.

Personally, I hate JGS's outfit. I keep thinking "Just hand in a mic to sing some good ol' trot songs to woo the ajummas, and he'd be a "gigolo". A good looking one, that is".

And as much as I think Seo Woo can look adorable, her dress is absolutely hideous. I can't tell if she's trying to be cute or sexy. Honestly, I find her head and face don't match with her body. Neck down: It's small and petite, but it's very "womanly" and her shoulders seem a little broad. Neck up: her face seems very childish (more with her hair...) and somehow a little toooooo small.

I would be very happy to see Seo Woo go for a more mature image. Being 26 years old, her face stays really young but the rest of the body is aging.

As for favorites: Ha Ji Won (as usual) and Sun-Woo Sun. Gorgeous.

yeah, the baeksang this year are off... not TOTALLY off and incomprehensible but still a little bit ???? I mean I love Yoona and all but Popularity awards for Cinderella Man? come on.. same with DBSK Yunho getting 2nd place in popularity awards for Heading to the ground. I love both of them but even though it's a popularity awards, its main focus is still dramas, acting and movies.
Anyways, Im glad Lee Seung Gi and Jang Geun Suk won but yea, it's werid that JGS got it for his movie rather than YAB. Huhu... Jung Il Woo was not here... he DID end up in 6th place with the popularity awards so I wanted to see him but I guess he's busy with his play. Lee Byung Hun is really good and for me, it's a toss up between him and Jang Hyuk for best actor and though I do get the IRIS winning the best drama thing, I cant say I agree with it though. It's sad that low ratings but quality dramas gets less credits... I do like the orange dress btw.. . and yeah, my reaction to So Ji Sub uniform was also WTF??? don't get me wrong, he looks suave in his uniform but really?

Kim Nam Gil... you sexy bastard!!! I was too busy squealing over every 2 second shot of him to concentrate on the awards. *Swoon*

I'm always pretty disappointed by the red carpet fashion of Korean actors (with a few exceptions). Most of the time I'm thinking, "It's like the Oscars of Korea- wtf were they thinking?!"
But Ha Jiwon and Kim Nam-joo get my vote for best-dressed for the ladies. KNJ has always been known as a fashionista and her green dress really stood out in pictures next to the others (Korean actresses always seem to gravitate towards black, white, pale pinks, or other muted colors).

Moon Geun-young... I am not a fan of the short-in-the-front, long-in-the-back dresses and hers is no exception. I wonder how she sat in that thing without flashing any of her *insert personal creative word of choice*?
And So Ji Sub, So Ji Sub, So Ji Sub... I was also hoping he had come straight from filming or something but really... I don't know how to defend his choice that night...
Anyways, I know never to get my hopes up for breathtaking fashion on the Korean red carpet but I have to give them props for never being boring! There's always that one (or 10) fashion disaster(s) to keep it interesting!

This years WTF definitely goes to So Ji-sub. Hey there Jang Geun-seok, you're looking totes normal today, good for you. Not to be that person but Seo Woo wore a dress she can slightly bend over in, so that's... something. (but I think MGY didn't learn from Seo Woos short dress lesson)

Park Bo-young, I need some more movies with you. I'm still wishing for a Speed Scandal 2...

Goodness, LBH is so yummy-looking! Too bad I'll never have me one of those. And Jung Yong-hwa looks pretty spiffy in his suit, too, but where's Hong-ki???? I know, probably off with his band, but it would be so cute to see them all together.

And what's up with IRIS winning best drama? I mean, come on. I thought LBH did a fab job as Kim Hyun-jun, but IRIS overall? I would take it a little more seriously if the politicking wasn't so blatantly obvious.

I think my reaction was more like "ahhhhhh" for Kim Nam Gil. And then a smile - sexy bastard is right.

Someone needs to explain the awards for Take Off. I've seen Take Off. It's like giving the Oscar to The Blind Side. You know, nice uplifting movie, but not the greatest movie on the list. That was another WTH? Now, I wouldn't give it to Thirst, but hasn't Mother swept every other award?

Jung Yong-hwa's hair - the Ji Hoo look - messed with my brain as well. It took him talking before I figured out ....yeah, that's him alright.

In addition- (I just can't shut up when it comes to fashion or makeup) I wish the makeup artist would have done a better job on Jung Yong-hwa. His foundation's looking a little thick in the third picture (but I'm just nit-picking now). Are my eyes deceiving me??? I think he's wearing his WGM ring!!! hehehe~

Regarding MGN's dress again, I think Michael Kors said it best on Project Runway, "It looks like she's pooping fabric!" :)

Okay, interesting choices made - some good some bad, below are the ones i feel strongly enough to comment on

LOVE:
Kim Nam-gil = SEX, seriously who is this man and where has he been my korean viewing life? The guy just ozzes sex appeal, his woman is on lucky lady!

Han Hyo-joo = Cutie, loving the dress particularly the cut of the neck and hair and make up is a great young look which suits her age.

Lee Min-ki= so sweet and lovely to look at, love the hair the suit and the bow tie bless

Hwang Jung-eum = Love the look, is an awards show look? Nah, but who cares you look hot girl!

Shin Se-kyung = Love love love this dress, love the style, colour, sharp everything, especially the colour every awards showy.

HATE:

Go Hyun-jung = i love you, your acting is all kinds of fierce and you should be and are respected, but your dress is a little frumpy - you need to work it girl!

Kim Nam-joo = Blehhh, weird shape and looks like its too long. Shame cos its a lovely colour FAIL

Sohn Ye-jin = again, great colour, ugly dress

Sunwoo Sun = hate it, could of worked, but didnt

So Ji-sub= Ehh???

Yoon-ah = hair & make up pretty , but dress and look is a bit safe and boring, kiss of death on the red carpet?

Lee Chae-young = What's with the leather and chainmail, you going into battle love?

Ohhh a love awards shows - i can really get my bitch on!

Oh no, Moon Geun young looks like a twig. She must think she looks good or else she wouldn't have worn something so revealing on both ends.

I think So Ji-sub in the army garb may have been a request from the higher ups from his new film? It's either that or he really wants to stand out! ... Or maybe he spoke with Gu Hye Sun the night before....

Yes! Kim Nam Gil, you sexy bastard!
So glad you said it, JB! I'm always self-censoring here, but I think the readers here are mature enough - hehe!

So Jisub - thanks! I used to ABHORR men in suits, until Kang-ha came along in WUAS and changed my mind a wee bit, but really SJS, I wouldn't have had minded seeing you in one. You deprived us of the sight at the press conference too. /over

Jang Geon-suk can roll up to anywhere wearing anything he pleases, because he knows exactly what he's doing... I trust his crazy choices, totally!

From the women, I only like what Choi Kang-hee and Shin Se Kyang wore, oh and the sheer black cape thing Go Hun-jung is wearing over her dress.
The rest look a bit blah! The tangerine does actually look pretty on Sohn Ye Jin's colouring and quite like the drape, but there's a kinda tackiness to it.
Sun Woo-sun looks great overall, but seeing her made me miss the rest of the WISFC cast! They're MIA.

In terms of the awards 'WTF?' pretty much sums it all up.

I wouldn't have recognized Joo Sang-wook in his "real" look. It's sometimes funny how actors can look like a different person in sageuk attires. Like Lee Jun Ki and Song Il Gook... I can't watch these 2 men in normal contemporary dramas, even if I love them. Their face is so handsome in sageuk, but they look really weird to me otherwise :s

and as much as i love Yoon Shiyoon and all his cuteness,
and though i understand WHY he'd want/ need to wear lifts,
seeing as he's standing next to Daniel Choi....
i still don't like it.

i like short guys!!!!
the snarky girls who say guys need to be the tall are the ones who probably hear that girls should, at the least, be pretty.

I'd have to disagree that Chuno has a chance at Baeksang next year. Although it may be eligible because a number of its latter episodes fall within the eligible timeframe for next year's awards, majority of the show aired within this year's eligibility timeframe. And unless there are no major productions that succeed during the remainder of 2010, it is unlikely that Baeksang will dig this far back to give out awards. In other words, I agree with many of the other comments that Chuno has simply been robbed.

Also, although it has a better chance at the end of the year KBS awards show, it has the handicap of having aired early on in the year, and the end of the year network awards shows have a strong favoritism for actors in dramas during the latter half of the year. One major exception was LBH winning the SBS daesang for "All In," over Kim Hee Ae for "Perfect Love." But that was just big name star power in action.

-Kim Nam-joo's dress is my favorite color but the dress is not structured enough and looks poofy in the middle and the shoes should be strappy gladitators with silver rhinestones since dress is grecian style.

-Ha Ji-won looks sexy and amidala-ish. I don't think many can carry off that dress. I envy her bod. Wish she was gong to be on IRIS2.

-Choi Kang-hee looks totally washed out. The dress itself isn't bad but that color just doesn't work for asian yellow undertones

-Han Hyo-joo always reminds be of a young filly and the deer in headlights description is very fitting. She looks like she never knows what to do with her hands which is endearing and cute.

-Love Sunwoo Sun's dress. Simple, elegant and sexy.

-Lee Min-jung's dress looks matronly and isn't in keeping with her bright, young cheerful face. She is such a pretty girl and the dress doesn't suit her.

-I think Shin Se-kyung could have looked matronly in that dress but the color and hairstyle prevents it. It looks good good on her.

-Sohn Ye-jin's dress color and cut I don't like. That color seems to only look good on a darker caramel skin tone.

-Hong Su-ah’s dress is a little tight in the boob area. I wouldn't be able to take my eyes off them if I were anywhere near her.

It's way too late to acknowledge KIM NAM GIL’s talent with that newcomer’s award. I have seen his acting in several movies, (I know that the Baeksang is mainly focused on the drama industry but still) he should have got an award that is the Baeksang award few years ago. I’m looking forward to his new drama but still I prefer his historical characters. 

I think So Ji-sub has given his mind at home while going to awards. WTF? can't believe really.
Moon Geun-young's aura is very different and I really like her!
so far, I've never seen Lee Min-jung in a fabolous dress but she's so beautiful that everything seems to be OK with her!
I'm a fan of Sohn Ye-jin but I have to admit that I didn't like her dress but it's the same thing for her like LMJ. she's always awesome for me.
anyway, it is always enjoyable to look at red carpet pics ^_^

I think Park Bo-young's dress is a pink version of the dress Yoon Eun-hye is wearing in the photo at the top of this post: http://www.dramabeans.com/2009/09/yoon-eun-hye-sheds-tears-at-acting-criticism/

(I remember that because I just loved that dress. I must say I prefer the seafoam green, though both are lovely.)

Personally, I thought one of the biggest surprises was Hwang Jung Eum getting the New Actress Award for High Kick through the Roof. If it wasn't for the crazy Soshi fans voting for Yoona, I think the Popularity Award would have been far more appropriate for Hwang Jung Eum considering the publicity/craze she created from that one show.

I think Lee Min Jung (for "Smile, You") or Seo Woo (for "Tamra") would have been more appropriate choices for the New Actress Award.

But I guess it just shows that Baeksang rewards for high tv ratings more than acting talent, not unlike the network award shows. When is Korea ever going to have a more unbiased award show? Sigh!

Kim Nam Gil = SEX is pretty much all I got out of this too!

I never thought MGY was that thin, but seeing as how her contemporaries actually look CURVY in comparison? Yeah, I guess she's a little thin. She's beautiful though, and very classy.

I'm surprised more people aren't drooling over Joo Sang-wook. I know he just played a smallish part in QSD but boy is he one good looking fella!

I was looking at the Baeksang videos for Jang Geun Suk, especially to see what he is wearing. The sparkling jacket adds a little umpf to the otherwise usual men's fashion in the red carpet. Knowing him, this one rocks!

But the great thing is that yeah you are right, Kim Nam Gil is one sexy bastard. You just zoom him right in on my radar. I haven't noticed him before and now i will be searching the web for more pictures! :)

How does Lee Min-ki classify as a newcomer? I've seen him in several movies and TV dramas. Same boat as Kim Nam-gil I guess. Probably more puzzling because he's been a lead several times already.

"Seo Woo (Cinderella’s Sister) is going for pretty and sweet, and I’m not a fan of the dress — it looks sloppy with the asymmetry — but I can see that she’s going with the cute, innocent image"

How can that be INNOCENT? Cute, yes! But INNOCENT? Far from it.

A few years back, I would cringe upon seeing the winners list. Now, I'm rather oblivious and emotionless. Unfortunately, Baeksang only serves as a chance to see stars I like and what people are wearing. It's lost it's legitimacy of being critical and valuable.

Rant: Dramas are already being awarded through ratings and netizen popularity, shouldn't there be a source of comfort for those who strive for excellence but don't accomplish the popularity vote? How does awarding dramas twice, in the ratings/popularity dept then in an Awards ceremony inspire artistic/innovative growth? Maybe I'm expecting too much. *sigh*

Umm, Yonna winning an acting award again?! She needs to send A LOT of thank you cards to those snsd fans! I don't find her as a good actress and don't enjoying watching her act.
