2016 MBC Drama Awards

It’s time to close out 2016 with the Big 3 broadcaster award ceremonies, beginning with the MBC Drama Awards (KBS and SBS will hold their ceremonies tomorrow). The station awards are always a mixed bag, since you’ll never get a representative sample of dramaland by splitting up all the shows by broadcaster, but it’s a longstanding tradition for each of the networks to hand out their own trophies, so it usually turns into a celebration of their most successful and popular shows, with plenty of awards to go around to every possible category imaginable, and then some. (You have your miniseries, your special productions, your serial dramas, and Top Excellence, Excellence, and Golden Actor in each sub-category, ensuring that everyone gets something.)

MBC had a quieter drama year than the other networks, with no big runaway hits to speak of, so W–Two Worlds ended up being the big winner of the night, scooping up everything from the Writer Award to Drama of the Year, and of course acting awards for the cast. Lee Jong-seok took home the Daesang (AND the Top Excellence award, which I find totally redundant, since you can’t really win first place and runner-up for the same category, but whatever MBC).

I loved Lee Jong-seok in W, but I wouldn’t call him Daesang material; his win seems to be a product of MBC’s smaller pool of hit dramas and their voting system, which has left the Daesang entirely in the hands of audience votes for some years now. I guess I can see the upside of that system, where the audience has spoken and can’t complain about the winner, but the downside is that it makes the Daesang feel like a popularity award.

Weekend dramas Marriage Contract, All’s Well With a Happy Home, and Flower in Prison were the other shows that had multiple wins, and feel-good dramas Shopping King Louis and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju earned nods as well. Here are your winners…

It was certainly Lee Jong-seok’s night, and he doesn’t disappoint on the red carpet. His Daesang acceptance speech left a lot to be desired (it was so short the MCs tried to turn it into an interview), but he seems to be genuinely terrified of the spotlight. Ironic, given his choice of careers and his ever-growing stardom. He and co-star Han Hyo-joo look great together, though I wish so badly she’d worn a prettier dress. This one is just so… plain. It makes me sad with its plainness, especially when her hair and makeup look perfect.

 
Shopping King Louis co-stars Seo In-gook and Nam Ji-hyun are this sweet and cute in every picture, like they just genuinely like each other and are happy to be here. They pretty much look like they’re dressed for their wedding, but hey, it’s not like anyone would object to that union.

 
Is it just me, or are Lee Sung-kyung and Nam Joo-hyuk 80 percent less interesting when they look all pretty and dolled up? I love these two in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju SO MUCH, but on the red carpet they go back to being themselves, and I don’t feel that draw anymore. Give me Bok-ju and Joon-hyung!

 
This is my favorite dress of the night. I love Jeon So-min in this frothy cotton-candy dress. It’s so youthful and sugary, and she looks aaaammaaaazing in every photo. She’s here for her daily drama Another Victory Tomorrow, but it’s really rom-com remake 1% of Anything that was her notable project of this past year.

 
UEE picked up a Top Excellence Award for her stirring performance as a single mother with terminal cancer in Marriage Contract, a well-deserved nod for the starlet who really came into her own as an actress this year. She arrived with co-MC Kim Kook-jin, and wore a dress with some strange cutouts. It looks cool from the back, but I don’t like how skinny it makes her look at the waist. I covet her hair and makeup though—so pretty. Co-star Lee Seo-jin wasn’t on the red carpet, but picked up his Top Excellence Award with dimples.

 
Real-life couple Lee Sang-woo and Kim So-yeon had a great year—their onscreen romance in the family drama All’s Well With a Happy Home turned into an offscreen romance, and they both went home with Top Excellence Awards. I don’t love Lee Sang-woo’s tux, but he got to arrive with Kim So-yeon looking awesome in a shimmery peach dress that hugs her curves, so he wins.

 
Im Shi-wan and Yoon-ah presented an award together, as future co-stars in the upcoming 2017 MBC sageuk The King Loves.

 
Weekend drama Blow Breeze’s Sohn Ho-joon, Im Ji-yeon, and Han Joo-wan. Sohn Ho-joon looks that robotic in all of his photos, which I still find endearing because he’s so awkward and cute. The ruffly black dress on Im Ji-yeon isn’t my favorite, but she always wears a dress well and stands out on the red carpet.

 
I have no idea why Ryu Joon-yeol got a New Actor Award when he’s not new (then again, no one among the New Actor/Actress winners was actually new), but I’m still glad that he got some recognition for his performance in Lucky Romance. The drama was bad, but he was so funny and lovable as a geeky programmer who was new at love.

 
The cast of weekend sageuk Flower in Prison. Jung Da-bin, Jung Jun-ho, Jin Se-yeon, and Seo Ha-joon picked up acting awards for the series. I think I would’ve liked Jin Se-yeon’s dress better without the train; overall there are just too many wedding dresses on the red carpet, as usual. Also, I can’t believe how grown-up Jung Da-bin looks!

 
I adore how Monster co-stars Lee El and Jo Boa came holding hands like besties. I have NO idea what Lee El is wearing though. Is it a Samshin Granny concept for her current role in The Lonely Shining Goblin? ‘Cause I’m pretty sure even Granny wouldn’t turn a giant lace tablecloth into a collared floor-length dress, even if red is her color.

Kim So Yeon's dress stood out- and it looks comfortable too.

Nam Ji Hyun unfortunatelly chose bridal but overlooked it cause of her sunny smile and personality. She and Seo In Guk were so smiley and genuinely happy to be there.

So Bokjoo was wearing wig in the drama. Lee sung Kyung has her long pretty locks. Congrats to her and Nam Joo Hyuk in their awards

I read ppl are criticizing Lee Jong Suk for his Daesang award and speech. But since its the way MBC did the award since 2014- we already know its a popularity thing. And the guy already mentioned more than once he sucks at speeches. Cut him some slack

I don't really see a problem with LJS getting the daesung, it's not so different from Kim So Hyun getting it previously. And this isn't the first time they've gone by popular vote, it's been two years now.

Knetz doesn't have issues regarding LJS getting the daesung....more like they are angry coz it was done by popularity poll and also LJS's short speech(which BTW is coz of his anthropophobia which he talked about in the Hwasin show back in 2013)

These are the top 2 comments with 18k+ votes

"Acting Daesang... what standard does it have.. They say that Lee Jongsuk is good but it felt more like a popularity award than a Daseang"

"Popularity vote ㅋㅋㅋ In the future only idols or young actors will receive awards, this is pathetic"

I feel LJS deserves his award, but I'll agree that in future years idols/popular actors might win it unfairly.

In 2015 too when Kim Soo Hyun won in KBS, there were comments with 10K+ upvotes saying how he shouldn't have, questioning his level(NB)

Yeah this is mbc awards and not baeksang awards.
I see no problem if LJS gets the daesang award....especially If LJS is mbc's highest paid actor on wed-thurs slots for 2016.

Fans should realize that these yearend awards are just one way of saying thanks to the actors/actresses who have worked for the broadcast stations.

No big deal.

I'm glad LJS got the Daesung, he always chooses good roles and leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to portraying his characters. And lets face it this wasn't a big year for MBC drama wise, given what they had to pick from he was the only candidate. It was well deserved.

As for his speech, I didn't have a problem with it he was practically hyperventilating if you see him walk off camera while the mc's are talking.

I don't want to sound snarky because I love LJS, but "he always chooses good roles"? I offer up "Doctor Stranger" as evidence that he's not fool proof.

Given that, THAT'S the only exception you can think to name, I think my point still stands. He consistently pcisk good roles and his performance is never subpar. I don't sew the problem.

And his acting and character or the way he played Park Hoon was never the failing point of DS. If anying that and his chemistry with Kang Sora was the only good thing the show had going for it.

that's true. He always does a very good job, even when DS was a bad pick he played Hoon really good, and left me wishing for Hoon and Quack to end up together, KAng Dora and LJS had an awesome chemestry together. My hope is for them to work together as Main couple.

ir maybe someday if is not too much to ask for some bromance drama with LMH and I'll be a lot happier 😁😍

I feel like a broken record when it comes to Doctor Stranger, but I'm happy to voluntarily place myself as such.

anyway, Park Hoon is a good role, but Doctor Stranger is a bad drama. In fact, I'm willing to actually say that Park Hoon is more Daesang-worthy than Kang Chul. That character has more layers, and LJS was able to show it, unlike in W, where Kang Chul is enigmatic. however, Kang Chul isn't as complex as Park Hoon (the character that goes into extremes - dedication, filial piousness, obsession, humorous, and emotional).

If you think about it this way, it makes sense. When he picked that role for doctor stranger, the scripts weren't completed. The premise of doctor stranger and his character are actually the same type of interesting stuff he has shown a habit of picking for his other roles too. Personally I think the first five or so episodes of doctor stranger are pretty interesting if a little melodramatic, so if he only had the first one or two scripts, for example, it makes a lot of sense.

i dont thk NJH or LSK were disinterested - but they look that way probably when they walk the red carpet esp Nam Joo Hyuk its like model Mode turned on. Their actual personality dont come across. I thought LSK eyes were a bit red and she was affected and thakful for her award. She was smiley in most scenes. While NJH looks tense and not at ease. Hopefully he gets used to coming to these ceremonies and try to enjoy it. Room for growth definitely.

I thk one of the translation i read on his speeches said LJS took herbal supplements to relax. He looked blank out for the Deasang award and the speech ended up shorter than his Top Excellence award speech.

Maybe because it is Daesang that everyone expected that the speech could be longer and more sincere.

I hope LJS will working hard to improve his speech skills and to overcome his nervousness (i never see daesang or any winner go to stage with happy go lucky face, everyone is nervous enough), he is big star now. Shorter speech is good, just make sure the content is wise and sincere.

UEE is starting to look dangerously skinny. I'm really worried about her.

I think the best outfit was Kim So Yeon! I wish that dress was knee length cause then it would have been killer.

Its starting to get repetitive but these Korean red carpet outfits, esp for the females, need to do better. These bridal outfits have got to go! Their cordis need some Zuhair Murad or Ellie Saab in their closet!

I'm glad Lee Jong Suk won, because he is deserving of it! Like I said in another thread, he is the only actor with two dramas that are favorites of mine "W" and "I Hear Your Voice", and I like "Pinocchio". He picks good roles, and plays them very well. He also has very good screen presence and strong charisma.

I also really liked his style here, he looks dashing. I hope they give him this hairstyle in his upcoming dramas. When his hair is brushed back, he looks so much better than when his hair is down.

As for his speech, I don't know since I didn't watch the show, but it seems like such a small thing. Also didn't he win two awards, if he gave his speech for the first acting award then it would make sense for the second (probably unexpected) acting award he wouldn't have much more to say other than "Thank you".

As for Han Hyo Joo's dress, I like it, it is simple and elegant. I like dresses that are not flashy, so I don't find anything bad about this dress.

But JSY isn’t Daesang nomination level, even if she has gotten a bit better. There are a lot of other actresses who get trashed by i-netz, but they are still more deserving of Daesang nomination than JSY. I agree that thick skin comments are unnecessarily harsh and slander of character and opinions should be given without personal allegations but c’mon, JSY getting Daesang nomination is a bit far fetched even if FiP was a high rated drama.

I am sorry I watched 43 episodes of Flower in Prison, and her acting skill was pretty awful, especially considering that she was the lead......

I had the same issue with Nam Ji Hyun receiving a "New actor award" especially because it is NOT her first lead role, and it has been age since she is in the industry.

Anyway MBC awards are not really "awards", it has been years since they started to do so many categories and offer to two/three people the same award. I see it as MBC just saying thank you to dramas and actors that were at least a bit succesful rating or popularity wise.

See, this is why I think the DB editor's picks are so much more meaningful than these silly award shows. What the heck is "Golden" / "Excellence" / "Top Excellence" anyway? I just like seeing everyone dressed up though, especially the Shopping King and Weightlifting Fairy couples. So pretty!

If only there's a way to make DB award to be a real thing, perhaps not with the ceremony and all but I don't mind chipping in for trophies that are sent to the people winning it. For once I really like some underrated shows / actors / actresses / writer / PD to know that we (international fans) appreciate their work even if their networks or ratings don't - for example to shows like Healer or I Remember You.

Oh my goodness - I LOVE this idea. Wouldn't it be great if we could send Beanie Awards to actors or writers orcPD's for the top Bean Poll winners?

I suggest the trophies be glittery and utterly beautiful, too. Shiny objects are a good thing!

Wow, because the DB staff works so hard and we all vote and put in our input, too. I think it would be great for the people involved in shows to know that they have fans all over the world who celebrate their work.

PS - I have also wished for two more things:

1. That when a show becomes a DB phenomenon with above average comments (like Healer or City Hunter) that the producer gets a beautiful keepsake book with the recaps (in English and maybe Korean, too) and comments. It would be a little pretty moment of the show and how beloved it was.

2. Fanderay art for a beloved show - I miss Fanderay and her beautiful art. Maybe every once in a while she might be willing to make a special piece of art for a beloved show.

There could be a donate button for us on the site.

And with so many minions, maybe it would be doable.

And everybody loves prizes. I teach little kids and big kids and the same prize bucket is coveted by everybody. It's human nature. 😊 And it would be a unique set of awards. I think they would be appreciated. *Imagines sparkly trophies and elegant show albums and Fanderay's paintings* *sigh*

Seo In Guk and Nam Jihyun were adorable together. I love how every one of the Shopping King actors who won kept talking about how much fun they had filming. It's so much fun when actors have as much filming as we do watching.

Side note: I translated the winner speeches on my blog if anyone wants to take a read! :D
Kim Euisung's speech was seriously great and different from the standard (though there's nothing wrong with that) thanks to cast, family and crew.

SIG and NJH's interactions were really adorable. Esp loved his immediate thought to scoot his chair backwards so she could be in the shot, and to just execute it without any drama. Gives insight into his character.

The reason why so many bridal gowns end up on the red carpet is because, apparently, Korea does not have what is called a "party culture". I only learned this recently during a fashion workshop in which the tutors were Korean fashion designers and magazine editors. "Party culture" refers to weddings, cocktail, dinners, etc. which would normally require guests to dress up. In Korea, wedding "parties" (whether they can be called a party at all or not) are so short, around 15-30 minutes, that no one bothers to dress up. The only people dressed up at a wedding are the parents (in hanbok) and the newlyweds! Thus nixes an entire fashion sector for occasion wear (ball gowns, cocktail, couture dresses, etc.), leaving bridal wear a more common choice for red carpets like this.

That aside, wow, the dresses this year are really boring. No interesting cuts, awfully gaudy choices of fabric, no interesting colors, even the hair and make up seems to be so toned down. Don't get me wrong, everything seems to be well-tailored and beautifully put together, but so... bland.

Curious about the red carpet for other channels.

I have a friend who owned a bridal boutique in Seoul and the mens' suits sections are very interesting with a variety of colors / patterns to choose from. And the price point are higher than womens' cocktail dresses too, which I find fascinating as in my country, men practically only wears black with perhaps 2 or 3 choices of blazer style.

That's interesting, but still sort of weird because they often dress more adventurously during press conference and other appearances. It's not like they don't have access to top designers or can't fit into sample sizes or anything like that.

Top designers in Korea don't really venture into occasion wear either. There isn't much of a "couture" or "atelier" culture, in which a client requests a specific design of dress to a designer. The idea of fashion in Korea is ready-to-wear and retail, so all of these dresses you see on the red carpet are probably off-the-rack and only refitted to measure, instead of individually constucted specifically for the celebrity. Hence, the repetition of the same-cut-same-design bridal gowns every year.

I'm talking about Western designers though. They're not limited to Korean designers and I've often seen the usual Western houses worn during press cons. I'm sure not everyone can get them, but Park Shin-hye has worn Valentino and Chanel before. Both labels make gowns.

seems like when they do get stuff from western designers though, it's never tailored properly which is a huge problem since on average Korean women are not going to have proportions that the dress was originally made for. I'd rather see wedding gowns that fit than ill-fitting dresses from super expensive western designers

Why don't designers make clothes exclusively for models and celebs then? They must have parties at least if not the ordinary folk?

Party culture aside, they are celebrities so I'm hoping that some designer is actually dressing/sponosring them for publicity/promotion whatever. They always get cool clothes in dramas so what happened during awards and during movie premier nights were we see them in the most cliche or plainest dress ever?

Aw, most of the shows I liked this year came from MBC. I didn't think they had a lackluster year at all. I was glad to see so much love for W and also awards for Weightlifting Fairy and Shopping King Louis.

As to LJS's short speech, he already had to stand up and say thank you twice before. How many different ways can you say that back to back? I think he was just a little stunned and didn't know what to say. I'm sure anyone would feel that way in that situation. And given how many consistently strong performances he's turned out, I think the daesang was well deserved.

I think networks have redefined what Daesang award is...I have been following these awards since I started watching Kdramas and every year I thought they were giving it to undeserving, popular actors based on rating and fansize rather than true acting excellence. Since then, I have gotten used to this version of Daesang - especially when it comes to network TV.

That is what asking if he is Daesang material or not is out of context. Only because within the context of MBC dramas this year and their list of nominations for the grand prize, there was no doubt who should have won the top prize based on popularity, rating and acting talent - all together. And that is what I have seen happen for the last 4 years.

So, yes, LJS deserved this particular Daesang. No one in that list deserved it more than him.
...

Now, if there is an independent (network independent), true drama awards which actually award excellence in acting performance, then I would say, he will need some time to get those Daesangs. There are tons of older actors he needs to catch up with.

But this one, he deserved it just the way KSH deserved his or Soong Ki deserves his and if LMH won one day, he would deserve it.

That is what I think.

(I am a fan)

At least is seems like there was a lot more color on the carpet tonight compared to previous years, that's always nice. And nobody showed up wearing the So Ji-Sub dickens hat+skirt-pants tux. That was an interesting year (2013 SBS, if you want to see pictures).

Squeee Lee Jong Suk got the Daesang, I'm glad. His dramas are almost always winners for me, he picks good projects. ^^

My 2 favourite looks are between Uee's first dress that she had on for the red carpet (the second dress made her look sickly because of how skinny she's gotten T.T And because the fit was so bad >.<) and Jo Boa's look-- nice, clean, and crisp
Kudos to the 2 awards given to "Marriage Contract", definitely well deserved :) That's all I asked of from MBC's Drama Awards this year--that "Marriage Contract" would be given well-deserved for the cast's performances-- and it happened, so I am happy :) Now if it will only happen over at the Drama Awards for KBS and SBS as well *praying hard, crossing fingers*

I'm happy that Marriage Contract got some love in the acting department (although I think the director deserves part of the credit)-- but I'm SO disappointed that Shin Ri-nah didn't win/share the win for the best child actor award. Jung Da-bin was good in FIP (and much better than Jin Se-yeon), but IMO, Shin Ri-nah's performance was more natural and impactful. I can't comment on Gu Gun-min's performance because I didn't watch WMSAHD.

I'm so happy for Lee Jong Seok!! his win is well deserved as he was magnificent in portraying Kang Cheol's character!! and he looked dashing in the tux!! ^__^ as of his short speach, he's known to feel uneasy when he's on the spot light and what is he supposed to say more than "Thank you"?!! plus this is an acting award so why make a fuss about his acceptance speach's length?!! he's a talented actor who's doing his job really well and that's what he got the awards for!! Congratulations to him and all the winners!! :D

i don't know, do any of the big 3 broadcasters get it right when it comes to these award shows? it seems every year they do something to cause global grumbling.

lee jong-suk did well in W, i enjoyed his performance quite wholeheartedly. but i also agree that i'm not sure if it was actually daesang worthy. it reminds me of how kim soo-hyun won daesang for producers; while i ADORED him to pieces in that drama, i wasn't sure if it was daesang worthy either. a daesang should go to a TRULY great acting performance. like jo jin-woong in signal.

i gotta go hunt up his speech and judge for myself. i really like this guy as an actor, but he does seem to get into an awful lot of attitude controversies and i don't want to get turned off by him because there aren't many actors in his age range that i like, who are actually good at acting.

is there a specific program that covers the red carpet only? i get bored to death watching korean award ceremonies cause it feels so stiff and boring, but i do anyway because i want to look at all the dresses. haha.

jung da-bin's dress caught my eye. really liked the front of it.

i don't know if i actually like kim so-yeon's dress, but the fit is dead on and she looked like she was killing it. plus, i love her hair without bangs! finally! i totally thought i was looking at her from her soonpoong clinic days again.

These "awards" show is really just another way of saying Thank you for making money for us. Now here's a a trophy so people can tune in. More money for us again since you came. So this Daesang trophy doesn't mean excellence. It's a thank you.

Baeksang Awards is the only one I would consider a true awards show.

What awful lot of attitude controversies? He has only had one in the past, which was that airport thing, but that was blown way out of proportion. Anytime anyone accuses him of having an attitude, that is the only thing they reference. And then this one if you want to count a short speech as an indicator that he has attitude problems. When in reality it is because he has social anxiety and therefore bad with public speaking and he had already been on stage twice, so I figure there wasn't much else to say. He is a pretty nice person, so there is no reason to fear being turned off by him. I would suggest you see his interactions with other people (staff, actors etc.) and judge his personality from that instead.

i said: "seems like," not that he actually does. it's simply my impression of him.

i'm not so interested in him as an actor or human being that i feel compelled to research every detail possible available about his life before writing a comment.

i've watched the speech now, and he did seem quite a bit out of it, and it WAS really short. it was quite a bit worse than i expected it to be, honestly.

judge these awards ceremonies for what you will, but still, if you received an award, the classy and professional thing to do is give an appreciative speech. if you really didn't have one prepared, at least show the effort of trying to put one together, or at least try to remember the names of people or figures to thank while you're up there.

because that daesang wasn't just for lee jong-suk himself, it's for EVERYONE involved in that production (W). the director, all the staff, the actors deserve a grouped mention because it was a group effort. yes, he acted really well in it, and i'll be the first to give him that, but no actor, no matter how good, wins a daesang by his sole efforts alone. there are always supporting figures who help to make the big picture happen.

i don't understand it. i don't buy the social anxiety thing, or even nervousness. he's an actor with years of acting experience and years of being in the public eye. he arrived at the ceremony knowing he was a daesang candidate, no? possibly he even knew he was going to win. he had the whole entire ceremony to put a speech together in his head if he didn't have one prepared, just in case he won. and this must not be his first award ceremony. he must have seen scores of actors giving speeches for years, so he knows how it's done.

these awards ceremonies are part of the job for actors. i still consider it a professional setting, and lee jong-suk just wasn't professional.

Studies say that public speaking is more feared than death, so most people are not comfortable with speaking in public. However, if your chosen profession requires you to speak in front of the public, however frequently or infrequently, you should at least make some effort in preparing for it.

Even if he showed nervousness but showed gratitude in receiving the award, people wouldn't be giving him the flack he is getting.

This whole thing about his speech is being blown way out of proportion. I like that he is himself. He had already won another award before the daesang, which was the "Top excellence acting" where he probably thanked everyone he wanted to thank, so it would have been redundant of him to say the same speech twice. I like that he is cool and laid back, and that he doesn't try to pretend to be something he's not. I just find it interesting that some netizens seem to make mountains out of molehills. I just never realized the level of scrutiny k-actors and k-actresses have to content with.

precisely. i wasn't saying that he didn't have a right to be nervous or that it's not possible for him to experience social anxiety just because his profession is an actor. or that he wasn't professional because he didn't have a smooth speech prepared.

what rubbed me the wrong way was that the whole thing came off like: "i don't really care, i just wanna go home, this daesang is a joke anyway." for once i agree with k-netizens and the criticism they're leveling at him. it's something i'd have picked up on myself even if i hadn't been aware of the controversy beforehand.

he was really bordering on rudeness with how indifferent he acted up there. the broadcast award ceremonies MAY be like a joke sometimes, but they still selected you for an award and not even someone huge like veteran actor lee soon-jae-nim would be in a position to act like the whole thing is nothing and a joke. but that's what lee jong-suk did.

maybe he was just tired and meant no offense, but it wasn't classy or professional or gracious. it made him look almost immature. and his responses to lee kuk-jin...

though honestly, mbc also should have just let it slide without pressing him to talk more. it's something that irritates me (as a fellow korean). they always want something specific out of you and if you don't give it they still try to squeeze it out of you anyway.

I think the actual announcement for the nominees was during the award show. it was first speculated that he, along with Kim So Yeon and Jin Se Yeon, might be a nominee.

He won Top Excellence so he wasn't expecting the daesang by award's end. He made a proper speech during his Top Excellence win.

Anxiety isn't by the book. studies can show something, but it won't apply to every single person. Perhaps he was unable to form proper thoughts in his head and just delivered the few statements his brain managed to form. Perhaps he really didn't feel like delivering a longer statement, knowing that it's more of a "popularity" award, and would thus come off as arrogant for doing so. Perhaps he thought that by saying a shorter speech, he's doing many a favour. we don't know that what went through his mind, and it's hard to judge. it's unfortunate that his win is being somewhat shrouded by this so-called attitude problem.

Yeah, I'm a huge fan of him, but I think he botched this.

it is definitely true that extreme nervousness can cause you to come across as aloof or like you don't care when you don't mean to be like that. I have the same problem and I'm constantly getting accused by my seniors of not caring about my work when I give presentations. Even if I prepare like crazy, I'm too nervous to sound passionate about what I'm talking about. That said though, I've figured out now how to prepare enough that I will be able to say something appropriate in these kinds of situations and get rid of the kind of nervous breathiness that can make it sound like you're just trying to get the hell out of there ASAP, and how to hide how much I'm shaking. I do think LJS needs to work on this stuff too, because people can't feel how much you're freaking out so they will just assume bad attitude first.

Also it does seem to me like he's so honest (whether it's bc of nervousness or otherwise) that he sometimes isn't humble enough. We all have things we're confident about, but it's better to couch that stuff in fake humbleness so that people don't think you're arrogant.

I have to say Lee Jong Suk does seem like he doesn't care. His attitude and speech made him look uninterested and disrespectful. He also doesn't seem to respect Kim Guk Jin as the interviewer.. Don't take me wrong, I like Lee Jong Suk, but his attitude is so different than Joo Won or Kim Soo Hyun who both won daesang last year. They're more humble and try to be as courteous and polite as possible. He still considered young actor and there are so many veteran actors too in Korea who will probably never win daesang because they're not popular enough. So for him to win Daesang based off votes and winning it over seniors like Kim So Yeon or Lee Seo Jin, he should try to be more humble and thoughtful while giving the speech. For Koreans it's pretty big deal because manners and attitude are still valued there.

I'm over the Daesang arguments. At least for MBC it's completely a popularity award considering they had audiences literally VOTE for the winner. I hardly think LJS did anything different from what he usually does - and his character never resonated with me either. But can one really argue Kim So-yeon or Jin Se-yeon is more popular than he is? Not really so I don't see where the argument is.

I'm soooo happy for both Lee Sung-kyung and Nam Joo-hyuk. They are utterly deserving of their awards and their drama is literally the best thing of 2016 for me hands down. I was really excited that they came together - the have such an awesome positive vibe. Even in their photo shoots and most definitely in their drama, there's a lot of fantastic energy and chemistry that just sparkles. I seriously seriously seriously LOVE them right now. They can do no wrong.

Maybe without the Bok Joo-Joon Hyung disguise, they don't seem that ineterested and giddy to be together and therefore lost that "puppy appeal?" I don't know.

A lot of hate is going to Lee Jong Suk in Korea. Netizens are angry on how kim so yeon did not get it. This is because the awards were given according to popularity votes. So it didnt matter who acted better...it only mattered on their fame. His speech also made people think he had the celebrity virus. However, I have no problem with LJS winning I just kind of thought that there were better actors/actresses that should have gotton it. Anyways~congrats LJS!!

LOL so now "extending his/her leg" is a crime? This is so ridiculous it is getting hilarious to read about. I just read about poor Kim Yoo Jung (she is the heroine in Moonlight correct?).

No wonder k-actors and k-actresses (from the few Eng subbed clips I've watched of them) tend to be very guarded in public, and therefore some of their interactions during interviews seem fake (but now I understand why). Anyways I just hope that LJS remains himself, and continues to do good acting work and pick good projects, because that is all that really matters at the end of the day.

Tonight's awards ceremony was underwhelming, but then again, this year's dramas on MBC were underwhelming. It's just no fun when one drama wins everything, like last year when Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum, and Park Seo Joon practically rotated onto the stage.

I think Lee Jong Suk winning the Daesang is justifiable, but netizens do not agree. Both the winners and attendees lists are noticeably shorter this year. Were there not enough stars to do a Top 10 Stars Award?

I'm all for a Seo In Guk and Nam Ji Hyun wedding. Though among the wedding and non-wedding dresses, Jin Se Yeon’s is my favorite. Simple yet classy. I don't like Uee's experimental dress.

From red carpet, love to see some good dress (not overall white, so it's fine). Also "on screen couple" arrive together, lookas good.

Congratulations for all winners. No surprise for Lee Jong Suk won Grand Prize by netizen's vote. For me his "real" competitor in this category just two, Kim So Yeon and his co-star in "W", Han Hyo Joo.

But, can I say last night's awards is just mess? Some of the awards' categories "vanished by wind" like : Actor of the Year Chosen By 3 Broadcasting Station' PD (or called it "PD Awards"), Popularity Awards, and Top 10 Stars Awards (just started last year). Where did those going? Was MBC forgot to put it on to those categories? Or no budget to make another trophies? Or confused to chose some winners?

I don't know if MBC was given some critics by Korean netizen because chosing Grand Prize from voting , or not. But, for me Grand Prize should chosen by Drama Department VP or President or also by some PD's in MBC because it's the biggest awards that actors and actresses can reach. Also, how come who won Top Excellence Awards can win Grand Prize, like what happened last year. Just dissapointed enough for watched it last night. Hope there will be some positive changes in 2017.

(P.S : not to mention hate Lee Jong Suk. He's excellent in "W", but Kim So Yeon and Han Hyo Joo more deserved to win this).

I did watch W and I sincerely found HHJ emotional acting in the show unconvincing. Whether it was over the death of her father or her reaction to Kang Chul dying, all of it was underwhelming.

If anything Kim Eui Sang carried the show, and then it was LJS. HHJ underperformed beyond her actual capabilities and the writer/director even admitted to directing her to act "less" and taking fault, so yeah there was legitimate cause for there to be an acting controversy.

Hello to my beanie friends
Reading the comments here, I felt like I should say something that's been on mind for a while. I think drama awards and movie awards are about (or at least should be about) appreciating talented actors for their work and encouraging others to do better.
If we as their audience start to criticize them for what they wear, or how they look instead of encouraging them to work better, they will most likely lose focus on their career and try to attract audience by choosing "daring clothes","interesting cuts""flashy outfits" and so on, so if they go astray on their way and become obsessed with fame we too are at fault.
"love people for who they are" shouldn't be just an inspiring quote from a teenage drama. Simplicity and modesty are among the things that great people like Confucius and Buddha taught us to be better people.
All of the above things aside, an actor is A PERSON who is doing his job, making a big deal about it is not good for neither the audience or actor.
Wish you all a happy and blessed New year.
Thank you.

I just can't take the MBC Daesang award seriously anymore now that it is effectively a popularity award. I'm sure it wouldn't have been much different result wise even if it had been up to MBC, but the fact that the Daesang winner likely then also gets the top excellence in acting award is just so redundant and frankly unfair to the other nominees who could've gotten the award. Come on now.

My comments for the awards show;
1. Seo Inguk and Nam Ji Hyun looks so genuinely happy together, and I am loving every minute whenever Seo Inguk was on camera. He looked so natural on camera, and I loved it everytime he smile. My puppy!
2. Seo Inguk truly deserved an award for his Louie role; come on, we all know he successfully portrayed Louie like no other and SKL are definitely one of the best rom-com this year.
3. For the Daesang award; well I am not a hater, but I'd rather let Lee Jong Suk have it rather than Jin Se Yeon. Haha peace everyone, I do watched her in FIP and DS, both shows doesn't really shows her true strength to me(though I do hope Seo Inguk win the Daesang, heck this guy is talented so why not? But like everyone said, its a matter of fandom, so I am glad for every award they offers to Seo Inguk this year).
4. Saranghae, Gukkie-ya. Peace.
