2014 MBC Drama Awards

Red carpet time! The year-end station awards are upon us, and MBC is up first with their Drama Awards for 2014. MBC isn’t historically known for making a whole lot of sense when it comes to how they hand out trophies at the end of the year, though to be fair, they’re not the only ones — the general rule at all three major broadcasters is to reward good ratings. And yet, this year MBC has managed to find a way to make their awards even more meaningless, by awarding the Daesang (the Grand Prize) based only on text-in votes. No, really.

The big winner of the night was Lee Yuri, who played the villain in MBC’s hit weekend makjang Jang Bori Is Here. I don’t actually have an argument against Lee Yuri winning (I didn’t see Jang Bori, but it’s interesting that her villainous character was more popular than Oh Yeon-seo’s heroine, who was also a contender for the Daesang along with Mama’s Song Yoon-ah) — I just feel like deciding your Daesang by popular vote is a way to wash your hands of all responsibility, like you couldn’t be bothered to make a decision yourself, so you didn’t even try. Way to pass the buck, MBC.

Unsurprisingly, weekend ratings mega-hit Jang Bori Is Here was the drama of the night, with Fated To Love You, Pride and Prejudice, Mama, and Records of a Nightwatchman getting recognition for its lead actors. Kim Ja-ok (Thrice Married Woman) was posthumously honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award (*sniff*), and curiously, Choi Min-soo declined his Golden Acting Award. Perhaps he ran out of trophy space on his mantle. That or he thinks the whole thing is meaningless, which I guess I can’t really fault him for.

And here’s Ji Chang-wook presenting an award, just because. We don’t get to see him on the red carpet, because Healers don’t have time to dawdle and smile for the cameras. Swoop in, present award, run off to save the world!

Awarding method aside, I do think it’s cool that a villainess won the Daesang, which doesn’t happen often. I just wish I liked Lee Yuri’s dress more. It’s so costume-bride, not even all that flattering, and the very opposite of fun. The train in the back is confusingly made of a different lace altogether, and maybe on a different dress that side peek-a-boo panel would be sexy, but on the one-armed wedding dress, it’s just there. How I wish she’d picked a sexy dress to match her bright pink lips and her shiny trophy.

 

Her costar Oh Yeon-seo (Jang Bori Is Here), on the other hand, looks amazing in this structured black ball gown. It seems rather simple, but the material takes a familiar silhouette and makes it edgy. She wears it like a boss, with sleek, no-frills styling that makes the dress really stand out. I’m pretty sure she can’t breathe in it, but who the hell cares about breathing when you look this good?

 

Prettyyyyyy. Kim Ji-hoon picked up a win for Jang Bori Is Here right alongside Oh Yeon-seo, and struts in with a confident smile and a fitted tux with a touch of velvet. Makes me want to put my hands all over that jacket. To touch the fabric!

 

His Jang Bori costar Oh Chang-seok also sports velvet, but I find this version less appealing. Is it the paisley on top of the velvet doing too many mixy things, or is it just that Oh Chang-seok has the same look on his face no matter what he’s doing?

 

Now we’re talkin’ — move aside, people! Movie star coming through! Jang Hyuk arrives looking just about perfect in a fashionably patterned tux. He picks up a win for his hilarious return to comedy in Fated To Love You, as well as the Best Couple Award…

 

…with his costar Jang Nara (Fated To Love You), who proves that sensible long sleeves can be sexy. On this red carpet, this gown counts as colorful — the sequins are dreamy, her styling makes me envious, and the back cutout is what makes the dress. Well, that and Jang Nara in it.

 

Her Mr. Back costar Lee Joon seems a little tired. He looks good in his sleek and simple black suit, but it’s hard to find pictures of him looking remotely happy. Or does he not smile much? If I made it on the acting map with a serial killer role, I’d make sure to smile until my cheeks hurt, just to remind people that I’m not scary. Just sayin’.

 

Wang Ji-won (Fated To Love You) wears another white dress in a sea of white dresses, though hers is different. It’s just not a cut I’d ever choose voluntarily (the chances of looking like a sack of potatoes — so high!), and I dislike that open sleeve design on just about anything you can attach a sleeve to. Still, she’s a statuesque ballerina, so she decidedly does not look like a sack of potatoes. But I feel like this is luck and not good styling.

 

Choi Jin-hyuk (Fated To Love You, Pride and Prejudice) is so adorable, but there’s always just 2% missing when it comes to his red carpet wear. Okay, so sometimes it’s more than 2%. In theory, I see nothing objectively wrong with his suit with bold black and white contrasts, but it looks… borrowed, or something. I think it’s maybe that he just wears clothes awkwardly, like it’s written on his face that red carpets still freak him out.

 

Baek Jin-hee is also here with two projects (Pride and Prejudice, Triangle) and wears the one white gown on this red carpet that I like. It’s odd, but I like the feather train on this dress, mostly because the cut is so flattering. That neckline is to die for, and it keeps the dress from being boring. Granted, this is in no way veering away from Baek Jin-hee’s closet full of sweet, pretty dresses, but I love the way this one makes her look.

 

Im Shi-wan is technically here for Triangle, but we all know he’s really here because of Misaeng, right? Really, if anyone else wore a head-to-toe blue velvet suit, I’d probably find it ridiculous. But it’s Jang Geu-rae, and he just puts a smile on my face and makes me want to hug him like the adorable blueberry that he is.

 

Winner! This is my favorite dress of the night. Sooyoung picks up a trophy for My Spring Days, though she shows up looking like she’s here to win all of the shiny things. This dress glitters and wows in all the right ways, from fit to color to the way she walks in it, and screams, Give me that Oscar! Her hair and makeup are perfect too. Want. Dress. Now.

 

This is a nice pop of color on Song Yoon-ah, who takes home a Top Excellence Award and a Daesang nomination for Mama. I don’t love the dress though, which is too mermaidy for my taste. It looks better in motion, when she’s strutting and sort of using the mermaidy-ness to her advantage. But she looks curvy and beautiful, which makes me happy.

 

Her Mama costar Hong Jong-hyun looks like a perfectly styled, beautiful model… which I guess is what he is. He’s super awkward on the red carpet, but then that seems to be true in real life too. When you’re this pretty, you have to have flaws somewhere, or else it wouldn’t be fair.

 

Jung Jun-ho is also here for weekend drama Mama, looking like a spiffy ajusshi leading man.

 

Yoon Chan-young takes home a Child Actor Award for his role as Song Yoon-ah’s son in Mama, and looks uncomfortable being in the spotlight, but omg — his suit is plaid! So cute.

 

Moon Jung-hee rounds out the Mama crew, and arrives in yet another white dress. She looks pretty and it’s not a bad dress at all, but it’s totally forgettable, especially in tonight’s bridal lineup.

 

Hong Soo-hyun is here for the weekender Would You Give Love Away, and looks great in a vibrant color with a sleek ponytail. I love the color, but to be honest, the angles of the dress are too severe — it pulls one too many ways, and the cascade of tulle makes it look like she’s riding in on her own purple wave.

 

Bleh, Oh Ji-eun (Tell Me Your Wish), this dress could not be more boring if it tried.

 

Well here’s one white dress that doesn’t blend into the background. Kim Seul-gi is here for the drama special Won-nyeo’s Diary, after having a fantastic year with breakout second lead roles in Discovery of Romance and Surplus Princess. I don’t know that the overall effect of the dress is something that I love (it’s mostly the vest-like top part that cuts a little weirdly), but the look is modern and breezy, and I like that she’s daring to be different.

 

Lee Jang-woo (Rosy Lovers) really likes these double-breasted suits and jackets. I… do not.

 

His Rosy Lovers costar Han Sun-hwa wins for Most Boring Dress of the Evening. She’s beautiful, but this is how she always looks. It’s a long straight white dress with some ruffles. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

 

Choi Tae-joon picks up a New Actor Award for Mother’s Garden.

 

Kim Ji-young wins a Child Actress Award for the weekender Jang Bori Is Here. I love that she gets a train on her tiny tiny dress. Hey if I were her age and walking the red carpet, I’d want a train too, and I’d swish it around just like that.

 

The other Kim Ji-young also picks up an award for Everybody Kimchi, in a slick black number. The neckline is interesting, but not much else about the dress is.

 

Gangnam must be here as a presenter, because he’s an idol and a variety star (I’m Going to School, Hello Foreigner). I’ve only ever seen him looking slovenly on TV, so it’s a surprise to see him all cleaned up. His hair still drives me crazy though.

 

Okay, I love this dress on Kim Sae-ron (High School: Love On). The whole look is just too cute — the black detailing on the dress, the collar, her braid to one side. It’s all so lovely and age-appropriate, and she looks like she’s having fun.

 

Go Sung-hee (Miss Korea, Night Watchman), you’re very pretty, and you look pretty in this dress, but there is literally nothing else to say about your look other than: It’s bridal. Yay?

 

And here I was, hoping that her Night Watchman costar Jung Il-woo would be my eye candy of the night. How wrong I was. How very, very wrong. Jung Il-woo, did you go on a five-day bender and roll out of bed with just enough time to shower and pull on a tux without blow-drying your hair? Did you pull the day-old WHITE socks from under your bed as you were running out the door and put them on in the dark? Are you rebelling against conformity? Are you mad at me? Tell me what I did wrong to make you show up on the red carpet looking like this. I must’ve done something, and it must’ve been awful.

Can you name a single actor/entertainer/person in general who doesn't have any anti fans? That's kind of an impossible standard to set for anyone.

I'm not exactly part of JIW's "loyal fanbase" that you mentioned since I haven't watched him in many projects, but it the dramas I have seen him in, he's definitely been a compelling actor (especially considering his age/experience)-- and is often the standout actor in dramas I otherwise didn't enjoy.

No need to pick on harukogirl's use of hyperbole; I'm sure she didn't mean that /literally every single person on planet earth/ is in love with Jung Il-Woo...

FWIW, Lee Yuri was really good (in a makjang kind of way), and among this set of dramas, I don't quibble with the result. It's not worse than other awards shows that picked their awards in a more traditional way.

Did you watch Jang Bori? It was over the top as you would expect, but she did a fantastic job of totally committing to the character. I think the award was basically given because she WAS that show. Take her away, and it was a bit meh, kim ji hoon aside. But her performance made it really the platonic ideal of the makjang weekend formula.

Why are Korean red carpet arrivals almost always filled with bridal looks? It's so odd.

Moving on, Jang Hyuk looks fantastic! Best dressed male of the night. Other male celebrities should take not. This is how you rock a tux—with flawless fit and fashionable!

For the ladies, I agree that Soo-young wins best dressed. The dress flatters her figure and makes her look even more statuesque. And it sparkles without looking gaudy. Win!

Lastly, some of those wins aren't just questionable. They're downright laughable. *snorts* But oh well. All in good fun.

Best dresses for me:

Song Yun-ah, Jang Nara

Best tux:

Jang Hyuk, Kim Ji-hoon

We need to appreciate JH on a day like this since he usually dresses horribly from what I've seen. He looks totally gorgeous today.

And congrats to Lee Yuri for her Grand Prize. I think it's deserved, but I'd prefer Song Yun-ah. And aww for SYA who was so upset that her co-star got nothing.

Jang Nara was the 100% lock in for the Top Excellence, but the Popularity Award was a nice surprise. She was so cute when she was crying through her speech though.

And of course Best Couple went to the snail couple. Nothing less would do.

I don't think Shin Ha-kyun should be nominated for Daesang, 'cause Mr. Back was a hell of a disappointment. And so I'd like to think that JNR got her award for Fated to Love You.

Not being sarcastic here but why do people love Jang Nara so much? She's cute and all; acts well but nothing that stands her out in terms of acting. I heard she had to live in China for a while?
Anyhow, just honestly wondering why she's so popular.

I'm not speaking for everyone who also loves her but for me, she's one of my ultimate bias and as her fan I would show my support and love through a small and simple act like commenting her for example.

If you're curious why I love her: basically, I watched her dramas and was impressed by how she gives life to her characters and her synergy with all her co-stars (off and on screen), yes she's not the greatest actress to ever grace television but IMO she's a pretty good actress. Her dramas might not all be great and some of them are sometimes a total snoozefest (Baby Faced Beauty was a bore for me) but I enjoyed watching them because she always gives her best into every role.

As for living in China, she's really popular and had a ton of projects there, if you want to know more well that's what Google is for.

And shame on me for asking a question here when I could research it on Google for several hours and days to find my answer, yes? You are right... and righteous (as your posting name suggests - "King") No one should ever ask a question here or on any site because there is the almighty Google.

It's the vibe I think. She has a really endearing quality to her. Most actresses you'll be skeptical about them bawling while receiving the award, but Jang Nara feels so sincere. She just feels real. I wouldn't say she's drop dead gorgeous, but actresses don't need to be and she's attractive enough. K-netz use the words kind and cute to describe her most often. She's just a really genuine person. If you watched the awards ceremony, I think even Song Yuna was clapping encouragingly at the end of her speech, not because it was deep or profound but that she just has the innate quality to touch people. I think most people who watch her will like her. I became half a fan after Fated to Love You. That says a lot since I don't think I'm a fan of any other actor.

I'm not sure about the China stay. It wasn't forced but I think a weird career move? Since she seems to do well in her home country.

She's not my favourite actress or anything but to me she seems like a genuinely sweet, lovely person.

Not that I can blame them, but yeah.

I don't know anything about her offscreen, but I do think she is one of the more capable actresses of her generation. To me, the hallmark of a good actor is that they can make more of a role than what they are given.

In my eyes, Jang Nara does that very well. The role of Kim Mi-young in FTLY could have come across as a simple doormat Candy in the hands of a less skilled actress - which is what happened in the original. The fact that she could bring a spark and gravitas to a role like that, and do it in a way that complemented Jang Hyuk's performance, is testament to her abilities as an actress - sure, there may be others who are better but that doesn't mean she's not one of the best in her own right.

@pogo, I totally agreed with your comment except that you attributed the original version of JNR's character coming across as a simple doormat Candy due to her being acted by a less skilled actress, which is totally untrue.

Joe Chen is just as skilled, if not more so than, Jang Nara. In fact, watching the original FTLY made me discover that there is a Taiwanese actress who can deliver equally well on both the comedic and dramatic fronts. If she comes across as a doormat, it's due to how the original writers displayed the dynamics of her character's relationship with others - the male lead forced into a contract marriage with her against his will, her larger than life mother and domineering sisters (I still love them though <3), which eventually leads to a more satisfying and convincing payoff in her self growth.

Sorry to introduce a totally unrelated topic into this thread on the MBC drama awards, but I can't help feeling that your comment is totally unfair to Joe Chen.

And my congratulations to Jang Nara, I didn't watch her shows this year, but I have fond memories of her from My Love Patzzi.

I think Jang Nara is certainly cute and bubbly. She has a really warm and sincere feel to her even thou I agree that she is not the best actress out there but as long as I find her entertaining I guess that works for me. :)
As for the China part, I think I remember being curious about that too. One of my Korean friend said and don't know if it's true or not..haha...lol. that JNR said it just happened like that back in 2006? or earlier? There was opportunities from China on a invite and she ended up liking it and then more projects to work on and then she started singing in Chinese and then she also became a professional in a China university for a little bit, don't know whether it's one year or one semester but she does take part in the academics for a bit too. She speaks and understand Mandarin quite well too. So she is quite multitalented and no doubt makes her a favorite in China very fast. I am still very surprised they actually WON something for Fated to Love You since it ended for quite a while so Congrats to them..They look too cute together. I don't find her cute w/that older guy, he looks a bit old to me even thou he is only in his 40's.

Honestly who do you think he would have won against in any category? He's not nominated for Rookie, definitely can't win top excellence, not excellence either and they had to give Shim Ha Kyung something so Jaejoong can't win Popularity either......Also look at ratings.....

My Spring Days still on the number 1 spot despite decent ratings. Sooyoung was the only one appeared that night. Jang Shinyoung was nominated on the same category with her and as far as I could recall, Kam Woosung only appeared once in the nomination list.
Btw, Triangle rating is worse than My Spring Days but are still has more casts being nominated. What's your point here?
It's alright if Jaejoong didn't win this one. He already received Top Excellent Awards in 7th Korea Drama Awards. The one he already got is more prestigious than MBC. Why so bitter?

Considering this is an awards show where everyone and their uncle got an award (and considering Triangle was #1 in its time slot for 4 weeks of its run, with a highly-praised lead performance by Jaejoong, not "worst" than MSD as you claim, and also it had that top slot much longer than dramas like Fated To Love You) it IS suspicious that the network has chosen not to reward him. His getting awards elsewhere doesn't negate the oddness of what MBC has done.

pigsmout is merely pointing out things that don't add up, why are you being so hostile and rude?

0

No one is bitter but the fact of the matter is that 1) He was already slated to attend. 2) They had already prepared a dressing room for him. 3) He was very excited on Twitter to attend and see his Triangle cast again. 4) His fans already purchased tickets to watch the show. 5) "Spy" isn't airing at the moment and they're already way ahead of schedule in terms of filming that there's no possible need for him to skip the award show to film a scene so that excuse is total BS.

And then this was all cancelled at the last minute? His sisters sent him consoling messages on Twitter meaning something was not right.

I'm sick of people being willfully blind to the situation despite all the evidence that should paint a pretty brutal picture of how shady this industry works.

He cannot be nominated for Rookie because he already won that category in MBC Drama Awards.

But i knew Lee Yoori would win cos they've been releasing articles every week about her winning the daesang and when it was announced that it was all up to viewers vote i knew she would win for sure......

The jangs and eric/yumi were the only ones who I least expected to like in terms of reunited couples this (lee junki/nam sang mi, kwon sang woo/choi ji woo, leedahae/leedongwook). But the Jjangs are now my favorite OTP! The other reunited couples still had chemistry but lack that extra "it" something that I like, either that they chose drama I couldn't like.

Same here, they totally deserved it. Out of the 5 reunited couple OTP this year, I was excited for only 2: TBDAW couple and My Girl couple but both their follow up dramas didn't grab me enough and I didn't feel the same intense chemistry they had with their first collabs so I tried FTLY and just 2 episodes in, I was complete hooked, line and sinker.

The 2 jjangs had the best chemistry from all the reunited OTPs and they were the only couple thay I want to reunite every year, if that's possible.

i don't know where you get the details. but I think the Jjangs Couple popularity is no joke among international viewers lately. I can say our international voting help the Jjangs a lot to win Best Couple this year. if you count the domestic love the Jjang have a little problem for voting will be separate coz Jang Nara being nominated with 2 different co-star. at the end of the day Jjangs Couple still got it.

I don't know how much different popularity that LDW-LDH pairing compare to JH-JN internationally but i didn't dare to say that one couple is above the others. for me they have their own fan domestic or international. it's the matter of luck and how people like their chemistry or performance and at the end they vote for them. :)

Umm... I said possibly right? The OP was a supporter of the Hotel King couple and I'm just trying to justify the snail couple's win. I'm not sure what I did to get such a long response out, so...

By the way, by international you have to take into account the Chinese fans. On the Chinese forum sites Hotel King had about 3 times the fans and their fans were also yada yada bitterly complaining about the loss. And even though she had two dramas, vote splitting on JNR's fans' part was almost negligible. If you pop into her Soompi thread every once in a while, there are people translating her articles and for Korean viewers they were all leaning towards the snail couple.

I don't think you can say that the international votes were the main reason at all. You'll probably only find a handful of fans able to vote and bothered to vote but quite a few Korean viewers will have an account that'll allow them to do so.

Good point. I started watching Hotel King but couldn't finish it because it was so bad. Sometimes I read up on episodes to see how the story was playing out. But it does look like they were slighted.

I think "Pride and Prejudice" should have gotten more acknowledgment, ex. writing. The writing follows American investigative/ crime shows and I haven't seen something like it in Kdrama (maybe I just missed them?). But I think they did a decent job with the writing and sequencing of events.
And everything tied in to the main plot.
And Choi Jin Hyuk is doing a fantastic job in his role as a prosecutor. Seems like a natural at the job!

YAY Congrats to Choi Jin Hyuk and Baek Jin Hee for winning the Excellent Actor Awards! They have been MBC's Go-To Ratings Golden Boy and Golden Girl this year and it's great that both MBC and their audience recognized that. I couldn't be happier for Choi Jin Hyuk since he was completely shafted last year for Best Newcomer for his role as Gumihot Daddy. FOR SHAME. But really, P&P has been super enjoyable to watch because of the actors. Everybody is killing it in their respective roles.

But in all seriousness, he was uber cute and nervous during his performance with the Royal Pirates.

As for Choi Min Soo, his reason for declining the award had to do with the Sewol Ferry tragedy: http://www.hancinema.net/-pride-and-prejudice-choi-min-soo-rejects-award-and-makes-indirect-comment-about-sewol-ferry-77063.html

Also wanna add that after last year when all of CJH's red carpet appearances were on-point, his outfits for this year have been a hit or a miss. Poor thing also looks more and more haggard and tired with each red carpet appearance. He does seem uncomfortable with the red carpet and these type of award shows, very fish out of the water.

The more awkward Choi Jin Hyuk looks, the more I like him. Darn it! I mean, that black and white number is so awful, but I just want to pat him on the head and give him a cookie.

In all fairness, the guy must be exhausted. P&P is getting to the final weeks and I think his army deadline is just a few weeks away. Haggard is probably the best look he could manage--at least it's one step up from "in a state of collapse." Two steps up from "death warmed over"!

i totally laughed at "blueberry." i honestly couldn't get into misaeng (i totally gave it a shot—6 episodes), but i'm glad for his success.

i don't even like sooyoung all that much, but i agree wholeheartedly that she won the night with her look. it's flawless. i feel like korean red carpets as a whole usually feel rather prim, boring, and uninspired, but sooyoung wouldn't have looked out of place anywhere, and i can't praise higher than that.

kim sae-ron was my other fave tying for first. she looked super sweet and fresh and absolutely her age, and i loved the blush pink hue.

i liked the bust portion of jang nara's dress, but not the bottom. if it had been black and sparkly and sheer all the way down, i'd have loved it. i also liked how she went for relatively understated makeup, with no statement red lip or anything. she looks just slightly smokier and sexier than her usual self, and that's perfect.

that said, i really liked fated to love you. i loved jang hyuk and jang nara together, and their respective performances. i would've done away with the amnesia, but aside from that, overall it was one of the year's better shows.

If you don't think that @simple is just butthurt, you need to get your glasses checked. No one is saying that K-entertainment is "a convent with all angels", but there's no need to target a specific actor. To be honest, Jang Na Ra probably did deserve all her awards.

Top Excellence? She starred in the two highest rated miniseries for MBC and she was good in FTLY. In fact, she was really good in FTLY. Best Couple? In case you're not that well-acquainted with K-entertainment, FTLY was one of the dramas with the most buzz in MBC this year and even among dramas across the different broadcast stations. You'd think actors will lobby to get Best Couple? Uhh, nope. Popularity award? You know, people would probably be upset if they think she didn't deserve it, but most people were completely satisfied with the results. Being popular among the international K-drama fans doesn't mean being popular in South Korea. Otherwise, why would Shin Ha Kyun get his award? In all fairness to him, people will like him for his acting but to vote for him in a popularity vote? Honestly, even if she wasn't the most popular one, MBC probably thought it best to give to the person with the highest votes after Lee Yuri and Song Yoon Ah so as to not give away the results of the Daesang so early.

"Main point is Korean Dramas are in the brink of destruction in term of quality and originality" because of scriptwriters who are running out of ideas, not because of people like @pogo who stand up for actors who are wrongly accused. People also need to stop thinking that just because every drama awards is a farce, everyone who got awards didn't deserve them.

Jang Nara's triple win is an issue only to a handful of begrudged stans, so I wouldn't take these malicious statements to heart. :P

Shin Ha Kyun is actually very well liked by the general public and highly respected in the industry--people are actually asking why he's doing dramas instead of just movies since he's in that league.

Honestly, Mr. Back is a lousy drama but the fact that they managed to sustain double digit ratings is solely because of the leads' star power. That's more of a statement of their popularity than anything else.

0

@Malia

Well, I'm just a little irritated that they choose to target her out of everyone else. It's so bad loser-ish. To see her slowing regaining her fame after so many years is really comforting for an old K-drama fan like me, so I guess I got a little worked up.

I know Shin Ha Kyun is well liked, but just not so much by international fans. And I don't think he gave a good performance in Mr. Back though. The first few episodes maybe but after a while it gets disappointing.

And above all, I agree whole-heartedly that Mr. Back was a lousy drama. I really wished that Jang Na Ra never did take up that stinker of a show, because I was really fond of most of her dramas until Mr. Back which gave me the most unpleasant of memories ever. I must say that the Korean viewers were especially accommodating to the 2 of them and it showed in the ratings. If it was me I would have given up on the show about 6 episodes in.

0

The Korean viewers also gave up on the show as can be seen from the continual decline in ratings into single digit territory. When a drama has so much casting problems for its lead, that's usually a warning sign that the script may not be so good...

For anyone curious to why Choi Min Soo declined his award, here's a translation of his speech that Baek Jin Hee read at the ceremony.

"Thank you for inviting me to this honorable place. I thank the writer, the director, the viewers, and actors for allowing me to do such a meaningful project despite my not-so-young age.

However, it's not any other time, but now that I'm living as a prosecutor who enforces the law. An award should be rewarded when one has done something good, right

With that said, although I'm apologetic, I would like to respectfully decline this award. Perhaps, we can call it the least I can do regarding the conscience and hope that's still trapped deep in the cold ocean?

I'm talking about this generation where the law and common sense fail, and the truth and conscience are stuffed up. Even so, you'll still love 'Pride and Prejudice' until the end, right?"

He's referring to the Sewol tragedy and all the controversies and lack of help from the government regarding it.

Siwan is indeed a good actor but rarely people know him as an IDOL or SINGER. He is from ZE:A. and ZE:A's songs are pretty legit. I can mention ZE:A's song which will catch your ears after you listen to those songs: Someday, ONE, Only One 4 U, Aftermath Moon Leader version, Heart for 2, All Day Long, Man 2 Man, Ghost of the Wind, Phoenix. Just give it a try to listen to them. I am sure all of you will like those songs. Just search on youtube: ZE:A official youtube, you will find those songs there.

If you want to see crazy siwan in woman clothes, search Osaka concert 2013. You will be loling so much.

I watched the Youtube videos. I liked them. Of your list I liked ONE the most. I also saw Watch Out. That was fun! Cute video.

I checked http://grooveshark.com/ -- they have a ZE:A playlist with 88 songs! Some are repeats, but still a long list.

There have been a lot of complaints about idols in Kdramas, and I know there are some bad ones. But I'm glad they are given a chance at acting. I was really moved by Im Shi-wan in Misaeng and the movie The Attorney. I'm also enjoying Park Hyung-Sik in What Happens to My Family.

I've been trying to think of singers in the USA who are also good actors. So far the only one I can think of is Justin Timberlake; he's been quite good in some things. But although he is popular as a singer, I don't think we can still say he's an "idol". Anyone know of other American singers who are good actors?
