52nd Baeksang Arts Awards: Film Section

And now for the film section of the 52nd Baeksang Arts Awards. The Baeksangs award the best of both film and television in one event, but we’re breaking up the posts for length and readability. Here’s the other half of the red carpet, which includes a few of the film nominees with their dramaland co-stars: 52nd Baeksang Arts Awards: TV Section.

In film the big winner was director Lee Jun-ik, who had two projects: the historical film The Throne starring Song Kang-ho and Yoo Ah-in, and Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet, based on the story of a real-life occupation-era poet, starring Kang Haneul. Dongju garnered a New Actor award for Park Jung-min, who should’ve broken out after Bleak Night but is starting to get more attention now (he’ll have a big role in tvN’s Entourage later this year).

Action films Assassination and Veteran were the huge box office hits and each took home big awards — director Choi Dong-hoon’s Assassination won Best Picture and Ryu Seung-wan won Best Director for Veteran, to spread the love around. The top acting awards went to Lee Byung-heon for the thriller Inside Men and Jeon Do-yeon for her melodrama The Shameless.

It would’ve been more entertaining if people had been double-nominated in one category (like Yoo Ah-in in The Throne and Veteran, since he was stellar in both), or won in both TV and film (like Jo Jin-woong, Kim Hye-soo, or Ra Mi-ran, who had nominations in both sections), but the Baeksangs remained pretty evenly dispersed. And the red carpet is a continuation of the black-and-white parade, no surprise there.

 

 
WINNERS LIST: FILM SECTION

Daesang: Lee Jun-ik (The Throne, Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet)
Best Picture: Assassination
Director: Ryu Seung-wan (Veteran)
Top Excellence, Actor: Lee Byung-heon (Inside Men)
Top Excellence, Actress: Jeon Do-yeon (The Shameless)
Supporting Actor: Lee Kyung-young (Minority Opinion)
Supporting Actress: Ra Mi-ran (The Himalayas)
New Actor: Park Jung-min (Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet)
New Actress: Park So-dam (The Priests)
New Director: Han Joon-hee (Chinatown)
Screenplay: Ahn Gook-jin (Alice in Earnestland)
Popularity Award, Actor: D.O. (Do Kyung-soo) (Unforgettable)
Popularity Award, Actress: Bae Suzy (The Sound of a Flower)

 

Yay, the big winner of the night in the film category, director Lee Jun-ik, who had TWO critically-acclaimed movies in the mix with Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet and The Throne (though he’s still probably most famous for King and the Clown). I can’t wait to see Dongju, which will surely make me cry.

 

MCs for the event, Suzy and Shin Dong-yup, arriving together. Suzy picked up a popularity award, and had two looks for the night, both of which are stunning on her. She almost never fails at red carpet fashion; how is this statistically possible? The first dress is actually very simple, but it’s so sleek and sexy and fitted perfectly. The second dress seems like a nice match for her sageuk Sound of a Flower, and the gray floral pattern is so pretty.


 

Jeon Do-yeon took home the Top Excellence award for her performance in The Shameless, opposite Kim Nam-gil. I wish I liked her dress more, which is okay in close-ups (it has reflective bits that shine nicely in photos), but it’s a little much in the full shot. Maybe if it were more fitted, it could be sexy AND reflective. As it is, it just kind of reminds me of a papier-maché mermaid, I don’t know why.

 

Oops, Im Shi-wan and Shin Dong-yup showed up in the same tux. Im Shi-wan looks better; sorry, Shin Dong-yup.

He presented an award with his A Melody to Remember co-star Go Ah-sung , whose dress is disappointing and confusing. It looks like someone put her in her mother’s gown and halfway there in the limo, she was like, Screw this! and tore the hem off with her bare hands. If that’s what actually happened, yay for her. If it’s not and this dress was cut like this on purpose, I don’t know what they were thinking.

 

Han Hyo-joo was nominated for her lovely performance in The Beauty Inside, and was also in Haeohwa: Love, Lies this past year. I think this color actually washes out her face, though the dress is fitted perfectly. I just wish it were more — more bling, or more color, or something.

 

It was Park Seo-joon who really sold that loveline for me in The Beauty Inside, though his nomination (for New Actor) was for his thriller The Chronicles of Evil. Lookin’ good.

 

Woohoo, Park Jung-min! He’s such a great actor with range, from dark and hateful in Bleak Night to hilarious and dorky in You’re All Surrounded. I’m happy for his win, and I hope it leads to many more projects.

 

Fellow newbie Park So-dam took home a trophy for New Actress, for her turn in The Priests (I love everybody in that cast, but I’m way too much of a fraidy cat to watch this movie). She’s really the super-rookie of the year, with supporting roles in Veteran, The Throne, The Silenced, and leading roles in upcoming dramas Cinderella and the Four Knights and Beautiful Mind, all in the span of two years. Her dress isn’t anything great, but she looks young and fresh and bridal, which is kind of the standard young actress uniform.

 

It would’ve been a travesty if Ra Mi-ran had walked away without a single trophy. She was nominated for both Answer Me 1988 and The Himalayas, and took home a supporting actress award in the film section. I like the all-white look on her with the jacket and the silver shoes, though I kind of wish the dress were floor-length and super fitted.

 

Baek Yoon-shik was nominated for best actor for the thriller Inside Men, and marches down the red carpet energetically.

 

Bae Sung-woo, who was also in Inside Men, and was nominated in the supporting actor category for Office.

 

This is a great look on Eom Ji-won, who was nominated as a supporting actress for The Silenced. The dress makes her look youthful and sexy, and it even looks comfortable to wear.

 

Jang Young-nam was also nominated for her supporting role in The Classified File, and was also in Haeohwa: Love, Lies this past year. I love that she wore something pink and flowery; it’s lovely on her, even though I have no idea how she’s breathing in that dress. Maybe breathing is for private places like the restroom and the car.

 

Lee Jung-hyun is having a great run this awards season with Alice in Earnestland, which got her a Best Actress nomination. I don’t like her dress, which is literally a plain wedding dress with a green bow added, but I like her flippy hair.

 

Meh, another boring bridal look. This one’s worse because of the severe makeup and center-parted hair. I wish Jung Ha-dam looked happier in the photos; I mean, she did get nominated as a New Actress for Steel Flower.

 

Kwon So-hyun was also nominated in the New Actress category for Madonna. The fit isn’t great, but I’m so happy about the splash of color that her dress makes me smile.

 

Ryu Hyun-kyung was nominated for her supporting role in Office, and was also in You Call It Passion. The teal is lovely and so is the chiffon. I don’t think it’s the best neckline for her, but she looks pretty.

 

I still think of Tae In-ho as his evil manager character in Misaeng, but he picked up a New Actor nomination for his film Shadow Island. He looks less evil in real life, though kind of robotic on the red carpet. But that’s the endearing appeal of newbies.

 

Aw, D.O. (Do Kyung-soo) looks pretty adorable in a three-piece tux. He’s another monster rookie to watch out for, and tonight he went home with a popularity award for his sweet first love romance Unforgettable.

 

His Unforgettable co-star Kim So-hyun has my favorite dress of the night. I love the unbalanced two-piece, with the ankle-length billowy skirt and cropped top. She looks flawless head-to-toe, from sleek ponytail to the jeweled shoes. It’s fresh and modern and sophisticated, and I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE’S SEVENTEEN.

I actually don't like the black dress on Suzy. Looks cheap & underwhelming. The other dress is so much better and something someone pretty like her can pull off :)

I thought the dress looked amazing on her. I love understated elegance. The best part about her dress for me though, was wondering if Lee Min-ho helped her get into it before the awards show!? Sorry - can't resist - so happy for the two of them and ALL celebrity couples who are dating.

I was thinking where was the DOTS main couple pics and then realized, ohh this one is for film section. It is because my newsfeed was filled with pics of Song2 couple and made me wonder if the award changed to Song2 Award instead

I don't really like the fashion , but I give credits because I see some more colours instead of black & white. Suzy flower pattern dress looks good for her, wish it has more colours.

Well deserve to all winners and same goes to TV section.

I think Park So-dam's dress is really pretty, and slightly more interesting than the usual because of the sleeves and her swoopy short haircut.

and I know Go Ah-sung is experimental and has an eye for cuts and styles not favoured by other actresses, but this was not a successful experiment :( Especially not after what she wore to last year's Baeksangs, when she and Im Si-wan won the New Actor/Actress awards on tv - that black dress was flawless.

Happy Birthday Kim Sohyun and her favourite oppa, Park Yoochun.

At first, I searched KSH at tv section as she was nominated at Popularity Awards for School. But here she is. Love her outfit yesterday and she presented awards with her School 2015 co-star, Kim Minsuk, whose now popular because of DOTS. They were adorable.

I hope KSH will be nominated and win next year as she is so talented. Now waiting for her red carpet dress for KPOP Dream Concert as she is one of the main MC. Fighting Sohyun.

Just wanna give a little correction... From several articles that I read, Director Lee Jun Ik won Grand Prize for both Dong Ju and Sado (The Throne). I do agree that Yoo Ah In should have won best actor for his acting in Sado. He was just out of this world!

I'm obsessed with him too!!
He's awesome in The Throne and Veteran, the kind of actor who you want to strangle in one project for being the baddest villain and then you hug in the other for being poor little thing.
What I like from him he's always ready to challenge himself and play variety of roles. I'm still waiting for subs to watch Like for Likes btw, that seems like a hoot!

Psst...the subs is out in http:// myasiantv(dot)se/movie/like-for-likes/watch/
However, to me LFL doesn't give him that big of a challenge in acting. It's his "experiment" movie (first woman director he worked with, and first romcom film for him)

My favourite look of the night from the Film Section has got to be Suzy's first look with that fitted-to-perfection black piece =))))
I love all the little moments of shear shimmer from Jeon Do-yeon sunbaenim's piece, and I think Han Hyo Joo's look isn't so bad up close

PARK. SEO. JOON <3 *swooon* 'nuff said

Honorable mentions: the top half of Kim So Hyun's look with the crop-top and her hair tied up, Jang Young Nam sunbaenim's floral piece, and D.O.'s three-piece suit-- I'm a sucker for three-piece suits ^.^

TOTALLY LOVED suzy in the black dress. pure perfection. no critiques. though i did personally find the cleavage exposure a tad uncomfortable, most likely because i've never seen her expose that much of that part of her body before. the protective unni fan in me would have liked her a bit more covered there... but that's just me. i just couldn't stop admiring her prettiness whenever she was onscreen. she looked gorgeous in the floral dress too. but suzy would seriously look like a flower even in a burlap sack.

i watched beauty inside a month or so ago, and i was surprised by how much i liked it—or rather, how much i liked han hyo-joo. she's one of those actresses i've never really warmed up to (there'll always be a handful of actors i just don't like by vibe), but i loved the movie and admired her performance.

kim so-hyun looks sweet, though i dearly wish the crop top trend would die and never crawl back to life. i personally would have liked to see her in something bright and fun but still fashion forward, but hey, she's got time to develop her own style.

Since I interested in tv section, not meanings that I can left for movie section. As long as I know, except for New Actors/Actresses/Director Nominees, almost of them are seniors or "old" players like Lee Byung Hun and Jeon Do Yeon. Two of them have spread the wings wider.

First, congrats for the winners. Especially for Ra Mi Ran, actress which is a hit now in variety world (She's funny one). Great job in Himalaya when I heard her winning speech. For Daesangs, I expect actors or actresses ( for TV section also), but Lee Jun Ik made it. I'm surprise about it, because why not Hwang Jung Min??

He made two films hit last year (Himalaya and Veteran) into more 10 millons views combined? What's the reason? Ryu Seung Ryong, Song Kang Ho, and Choi Min Sik chosen as Daesang winner because made hit of their film (RSR for Miracle of Cell No.7 and Masquerade, SKH in The Attorney, and CMS in Roaring: Admiral Currents). Is Hwang Jung Min not senior enough? Is his acting not enough? Not one, not two, but three movies (Although Ode to My Father in 2014) to more than 10 millions views.

Ryu Seung Ryong, Song Kang Ho, and Choi Min Sik, followed by Lee Byung Hun won Daesang, not because of they won in box office numbers, but because their roles required the depth of acting. I'm not saying Hwang Jung Min a bad actor. He's a great actor with a midas touch and always chose the popular projects.

I still feel that the actresses are playing safe with their choice of fashion. When you compare hollywood awards and this you can notice that. Many prefer sticking to a white dress rather than going for bold colours. So when I see a colourful dress I like it even if it's not that great.

Anybody noticed the amount of white dress on the red carpet? Seriously what is wrong with korean actresses? Is white the only friggin' colour in the entire universe...... They all claim to be bold fashionista but all they do is play safe annd wear innocent white dress like a bride at her wedding Jez!

And suzy doesn't look go in that black dress,her chest is too flat like frying pan and her cleavage aint sexy.... She looks better in the second dress.

Kim so hyun's dress has a fresh feel to it,wish it was in another shade of colour. And Happy birthday to kim so hyun *she is 17 today*

Hope next year's films are going to be much better. An overstuffed summer period action adventure with forgettable characters winning best movie? lol ok. So glad Park Chan Wook is back with something worth talking about.

Lee Jun-ik's King and the Clown is still more memorable than Sado.

I didn't watch Shameless but Congrats to Jeon Do-yeon for winning yet again another best actress award. By now she'd won over 50 best actress from different film awards.
Thanks for standing out in an industry that is still dominated by men <3.

Every year they have a freaking popularity award. Why is this even relevant in film awards?
It would've been great if they have awards for short films, music scores, cinematography etc. It takes more than a good director and actors to make a film successful.

It bugs me how theres all those white bridal gowns or wannabe white prom dresses in the carpet... And males dont get a past either! The classic black tux is pretty but there are patterns and different colors you know??? It looks like the same designer gave them clothes or that they ask for something everyone has worn before to not stand out in purpose... its so weird cuz in other countrie's carpets, everyone wants to look as different as possible lol Im so glad baby kim So hyun never dissapoints with her gorgeous fun and beautiful outfits...! All those other stylists should learn from her's!
PS: No Kang Ha Neul or award for hm? Ok.. maybe next year *sigh*
