2016 SBS Drama Awards

Awards, awards, so many awards!

Not only are there a glut of ceremonies at this time of year, the 2016 SBS Drama Awards decided to change up their awards categories this year, separating them into multiple divisions by genre on top of the standard Top Excellence and Excellence prizes, amounting in a truly ridiculous number of winners. On the one hand, I actually like seeing drama awards based on genre rather than pure length or format, but I think it’s pretty apparent they were trying to give out as many as possible.

Still, inasmuch as I always tell myself these awards mean very little, I still look for my favorites and feel happy when they’re represented, so even something that’s mostly a participation and popularity award still has meaning. And while it’s a little unusual for the Daesang to be for a project that’s not done airing yet, I can’t complain about seeing Han Seok-kyu get it for Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, which was definitely one of the station’s biggest hits of the year.

I said there were a lot of awards!

As for the fashions, it was a pretty good-looking event, though as so often is the case, the ladies disappointed me by going almost exclusively black or white. Why so many bridal gowns on red carpets, whyyy? I was dying for a pop of color or an unusual cut, and instead it was a very safe, albeit sleek and glamorously styled, event.

 
I was happy to see both Seo Hyun-jin and Yoo Yeon-seok pick up Excellence awards for Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, though the part that made me laugh was their “Idol Academy Award” for being “Kissing Masters”—and if you’ve seen the drama, you’ll know they’ve got some sizzling kiss scenes. Watch and learn, kiddos.

 

Park Shin-hye (Doctors) has totally worn this gown before, right? It’s not my faulty memory? She looks beautiful, but sometimes her dresses have a samey-samey quality to them. (Aha! Found the dress, from 2012’s KBS Drama Awards.)

 

Lee Min-ho takes some of the prettiest pictures, I swear. He’s the one who’s been making Legend of the Blue Sea a hoot for me to watch, over (surprisingly) Jeon Ji-hyun, so I think his award is appropriate. Although, again, it’s not like anyone got left out of these categories! I’m just bummed Jeon Ji-hyun wasn’t at the event.

 

Despite its disappointing broadcast performance, Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo was well-represented at the awards, and both its stars came by to pick up their trophies, looking stunning. I don’t absolutely love IU’s dress, but when you put her and Lee Jun-ki together, the overall beauty quotient is so dazzling that I hardly think about that.

 

Jo Jung-seok picked up a well-deserved Top Excellence in the Romantic Comedy, as did Namgoong Min. Part of me is annoyed at the splitting of winners when there are already so many more categories, but then the part of me that’s unwilling to choose between Jo and Namgoong wins out.

 

Speaking of whom, Namgoong Min was presented his award by his Beautiful Gong Shim co-star (and fellow award-winner) Minah. Together, they made that quirky little show crackle, and I’m happy for both of them.

 

Minah had a costume change for the actual ceremony, having walked the red carpet in a Cinderella-esque confection of a princess gown. Okay, she’s the idol in her breakout actress role, so despite my fatigue of familiar white gowns, I’ll give her the frothy princess dress of the night.

 

I did hate their co-star Seo Hyo-rim’s character in Beautiful Gong Shim (so jealous, so petty), but she probably has my favorite gown of the night. Check out that beading and sparkle! How does it shine so much without looking gaudy? It’s a mystery, but it’s perfect.

 

Yoo Seung-ho (Remember–Son’s War), one of my perennial red-carpet favorites! I don’t know if it’s that he never ages, or that he was blessed with ambiguously youthful looks to begin with, because I’m pretty sure he’s looked like this for years. Am eagerly awaiting his new drama Ruler—Master of the Mask.

 

If splitting categories was what allowed Oh Yeon-seo to pick up an award for Come Back, Ajusshi, then well done, because her zany comic performance drove that show and was an eye-opener to a new aspect of her talents, and it would have been sad to overlook it just because the show got poor ratings. (One of several dramas sacrificed to the juggernaut that was Descended From the Sun.)

 

Pretty! Maybe it’s not that bold or daring, but it’s beautiful, flattering, and a color not white or black, so I love this look on Kim So-eun, who picked up an acting award for Our Gap-soon.

 

Kim Sung-ryung (Mrs. Cop 2) is surely drinking unicorn blood or sniffing pixie dust, right? Because she looks way too youthful for a woman who reminded us, while picking up her Top 10 Stars award, that she was winning in a category alongside three of her drama sons: Lee Min-ho, Lee Jun-ki, and Jang Geun-seok (Heirs, Iljimae, and You’re Beautiful).

 

I keep looking back at Yang Jin-sung’s (My Son-in-Law’s Woman) outfit and trying to puzzle it out, because I think I like it, and it’s not indecent or overly short, but somehow it looks like she donned a boyfriend’s shirt on the way to the ceremony and made it work.

 

I wonder if Korea’s Mom Kim Hae-sook (Yes, That’s How It Is) realized, when she chose the all-white power suit which she’s frankly rocking, that someone else would also opt for the same look?

 

It’s not quite like wearing the same gown to the same party, but it’s gotta be a little awkward, no? Here’s Kim Ji-young, accepting her award for (Love Is Coming).

JJH is a splendid actress but LOBTs did nothing to her character and acting skill.
I give her proba for being such a pro swimming with a mermaid suit but for acting wise PSH in Doctors and OYS in Come Back Mister gave so much more acting wise. I esp gave proba to OYS for pulling an ahjussi in a hot woman body. She did act like a transgender

JJH's character in LOTBS is a total waste of her talent.

I've noticed that every actress that co-stars with LMH somehow gets a badly written character and the actress gets overshadowed and overlooked. It happened with Gu Hye Sun, Son Ye Jin, Park Min Young, Kim Hee Sun, and now Jun Ji Hyun. Park Shin Hye may have been the only exception to this. I have no idea why this happens, but it does.

@Reisha But out of all the actresses, PSH worked with LMH in Heirs and CES role is the role that got her the most hate even until today... It's the worst female lead KES ever wrote. All she did was crying

But PSH has proven herself again and again with Pinocchio and Doctors that people started to see she isn't as bad as they thought...

Oops my previous comment was meant to @tatertots

LMH deserves the award if rating was the sole basis for the best acting award. But if its purely based on performance, sorry, not a chance. Not even KRW nor HSK can compete.

KRW, LMH & HSK are good actors in their own right. But LJGs portrayal of Wang So was on another level. I would say it's a masterpiece. Sadly, it did not rate well in Korea thru that traditional TV index which left me wondering how such KPI indicator still matters in this digital world.

Koreans are not imporessed by LJG's overacting department. Kang Ha Neul is a better actor. His range as an actor is at a whole different level. Kang Ha Neul maybe the best actor of our generation. Learn to appreciate his skill.

if you think lee joon gi overacted.then i would like him to overact in all his dramas because he swept the viewers with his emotions and was the heart of the drama.by the way way kang ha nuel is a good actor too

Why does he "deserve" this award? Based on ratings? No, because Doctors with Kim Rae Won had better ratings. Based on acting? No, because Lee Jun Ki acted better.

But PSH's drama Doctors had better ratings and more buzz that the high budget mermaid show.
Her acting was good and the role is different too... while JJH is doing what she has been doing since My sassy girl.
PSH deserves her award imo

I agree that LJK should have won over LMH and at least a co-award with KRW in Top Excellence category but have you seen Doctors? Because that drama was low budget, little promoted and 60 % carried by PSH and she was amazing in it and Yoo Hye Jung was a phenomenon, one of the most loved female characters (the most loved being Seo Hyun Jin’s Oh Hae Young) and the drama, which had a lackluster plot towards the end, still got +20 % ratings solely BECAUSE OF KRW and PSH’s acting. JJH def deserved better but she is exactly the same in dramas since My Sassy Girl and imo nothing different. LOBS ratings are stagnant and that drama is not a phenomenon despite it’s astronomically high budget and promotions. People still can’t credit a female actress in her twenties, coming this far BY HERSELF, no media play, no big agency, particularly THIS female actress.

The Hallyu Award was presented before the Daesang. Maybe SBS consider this as the 2nd Highest Honour but nobody seem to get it. MBC Daesang was decided by public vote & SBS may have thought it's the equivalent of that except only them know. What a fiasco! Otherwise, why would they award it before the Daesang?

Even DB didn't know the Hallyu Award was presented before the Daesang. Maybe DB didn't actually watch the award and just copy and paste the details somewhere.

If DB watched the awards, why would they put the Hallyu Award at the bottom?

I think that's what they intended, but it's still called a Hallyu Star Award, which in the past have always been known as just a popularity award, and that's why there's public outcry now cause people think sbs did LJG dirty.

Lee Joon gi IS already Hallyu star since 2008. So this award is not add more credit for him. I'm not sure what SBS was thinking. It might as you explain after all and I hope too :)

SBS intended it to be the 2nd highest honour but I didn't get it. Javabeans didn't get it because in her write up above, she put Hallyu Star at the bottom of the list when in fact it was presented just before the Daesang. Or maybe Javabeans didn't actually watch the awarding ceremony.

Totally agree, very insightful.Wonder when this site will give her credit for her achievements. PSH is just a joy when she receives these awards, always thoughtful and puts a lot of heart in her speeches. One of the things I look forward during award nights! Never got bored with what she says. SBS at least can depend on her to carry a show from start to finish, don't know of anyone else who does! Her fans are just happy that she is loved by her peers and the people who matters in her industry.....we are assured of her getting prime projects when she continues to deliver. Hope a pairing with KSH and success of movie with CMS for 2017!

Actually, JJH was nominated for Daesang (higher than PSH category) but she's lost to HSK. Do anyone know who else were nominated for Daesang beside HSK and JJH? Maybe LJK was also nominated for Daesang but didn't win.

There is no actual list of Daeksang nomination for SBS if I remember correctly.
It was picked in one of the top excellence nominator. HSK didn't win top excellence but get Daeksang instead.
So JJH, LMH, KRW, PSH, JJS, GHJ ect could have had win the award as well but HSK is the most suitable with acting skill and rating.

Lee Joon Gi's Wang So was a masterpiece. It's the best portrayed character in kdrama history. The Hallyu Award was the second highest honour of the night. As some say, the Daesang in the international level.

Thanks to Moon Lovers I found Lee Joon Gi and because of him I come to love Saguek and appreciate what great acting is, and understand the acting techniques used in Saguek and how different it is in modern drama.

JJS is still the kiss master from SBS for me this year, but I can't really be disappointed with YYS and SHJ winning because, well, their kisses are fantastic too, but even more so because they were so freakin' adorable receiving it together.

Still, I won't say their kiss scenes are hands-down the best yet, because the kiss from episode 23 of JI has yet to be beaten for me. Obviously I won't complain if they end up finding a way to surpass it ;) May they do their best!

Seo Hyun Jin and Yoo Yeon Seok coming to the red carpet while holding hands is one of the highlight of this award for me - knowing what they say in their interview is even better! The arrest joke is so cute.

For some reason, I feel like there's some truth in their old rumours (with Eric and Kim Ji Won - or maybe because I like them all) so I never ship SHJ - YYS in real life. But hey if they do turn out to be dating, I'll be so happy, their chemistry is sizzling!

And yay for Han Suk Kyu and Jo Jung Suk for picking up the awards!

SBS Award was among the most ridiculous awards, and so many awards. lmao. but yes it is a thankful award and SBS undeniably had a very good year in 2016.

Among tbe nonsense award / wrong winner was Seohyun won over Kang hana for acting award? (correct me if i was wrong, if im not mistaken both them mominated in same category). Seriously SBS? Even the blind people will choose Kang Hana over Seohyun.

Lee Min Ho shall wim the Hallyu Star Award and Lee Jun Ki shall be awarded as Top Excellent Actor. and Kim Rae Won, finally (althought he didnt come).

As someone who has been loyal to Kim So Eun for years, i am happy finally she can grab something. Regardless of the critics on her role / drama, she finally got something. She earned it by working hard for more than 10 years. More success in the future.

Have to agree... If they wanted to award another cast from moon lovers, Kang Hana or even Jin Ki Joo that played Chae Ryung had better performances in that drama.

In addition, Kim So Eun totally deserves recognition. It's such a shame how talented she is among her generation. She should has the experience to be headlining major dramas, but unfortunately those roles goes to idols with meager acting experience.

They've been doing it for years. Usually it's separate by length so mini series, mid length and full length, but they went with genre this year so they could give out more awards I guess. It just gets more and more ridiculous each year. I liked it better when they only did one Top Excellence Award and one Excellence Award. Still waiting to see whether any of the broadcasting channels will ever use categories like Outstanding Actor, Outstanding Supporting Actor instead.

FYI: Lee Min Ho said in the ceremony that The reason Why Jun Ji Hyun hasn't attended the ceremony is that She is filming underwater scenes. So she was busy with her drama shooting.

PS I cannot believe Park Shin Hye won that award!!
Jun Ji Hyun had two Roles in "Legend of The Blue Sea". She is acting as a mermaid, which is so brand new and Hard! In the first episode Jun Ji Hyun had No Lines and AMAZINGLY portrayed her character through great facial expressions. HOW is it possible that Park Shin Hye won??

Hold on.. Im neither a fan of then both. I am a third party here.

Jjh's acting got me bored while watching blue sea. Thanks to lmh for savinh it but then i decided to quit on ep 12.

While psh was not bad and just in the middle of what ppl called potential acting. But at the very least, she was kinda different from her previous acting in the heirs. Jjh potraited a mermaid but all i remember is her character in love from the star.

For the first time, really2 a first time, i agree with this award about psh.

I agree that LJK deserves the award as well, but that doesn't make LMH undeserving. To be fair to LMH, he has done great with just the first half. The drama hasn't finished airing yet.

It would have been nice if doctors was not part of the same category and the award was split between LJK and LMH, then everyone wins. I mean, everyone is winning anyway so why not?

I am glad that ratings didn't stop SBS from giving recognition to Oh Yeon So. She was fabulous In Come Back Ahjussi.

I also like that Namgoong Min won for his role in Beautiful Gong Shim. I'm probably in the minority who didn't like his performance much in Remember-Son's War. To me, it was over the top and a caricature of a psychopath. Paired with a hapless crying Yoo Seung Ho, it was just too much. Sadly, Beautiful Gong Shim went makjang and too predictable towards the end. I thoroughly enjoyed it before it went downhill.

Go Kyung Pyo got award in "New Star"? Again, I am always flummoxed by this kind of categories.

Never mind Baekhyun, they just got to give him one but why "Special Acting Award" to Seohyun in Moon Lovers?

I'm happy OYS managed to get the award. How I wish Honey Lee was able to grab anything too. Compared to what KBS did to their low rated drama, SBS probably slightly better.

Hahaha...it's like the best of the worst! If SBS had gone purely on ratings, it would have ignored Jackpot, Entertainer and Moon Lovers. I am happy that Kang Haneul got Excellence for his role as Wang Wook. I think he gave more than was written because none of the characters made sense to me.

I'm happy for KHN too. He is totally deserving it. Aside from him and Lee Jun Ki who performed better than what was written for them, Kang Ha Na was also good. They gave more. This is the example of good acting can save poorly written drama, even a little.

Yay grats to Han Seokkyu for winning Daesung, very well deserved!
I'm really surprised Jeon Jihyun didn't win more awards, I think she's doing a fantastic job in Legend of the Blue Sea, ah well.

Han Seok Yu was a little late yesterday, at first i thought mybe he wont get any award (which is almost impossible, otherwise SBS will face backlashes from knetz because he is one of the most respected actor and his drama also a hit).

Among the daesang winner from all stations, i can say Han Suk Kyu is the best followed by Song Jong Ki in respect of talent. Congrats!

Double yay for Han Seok-kyu <3. Classy speech for a classy actor.
I still remember when he won Daesang for Tree With Deep Root.

Thank you SBS for appreciating this talented man. He has truly earned the respect he is getting in this industry.

Now let's go back to Chungmuro Master Han.

Was not a fan of the whole sharing an award thing, particularly with the Top Excellence ones. Overall the whole thing was a mess but at least they didn't screw up the Daesang, and I think Han Suk Kyu really deserves it!

Highlight for me was really watching the Moon Lovers cast being super extra and supportive when any of the others were on stage performing or receiving an award. Really warms me up to see their friendship, which reminded me of The Heirs' cast back in 2013. At least one good thing came out from that trainwreck of a drama.

Agree! The MLSHR table looked like so much fun, at least they enjoyed themselves for the evening with each other's company. The cutest was probably when they all were beaming like proud parents when Baekhyun got his rookie award. Whether he deserved it or not is another question, but it was really lovely to see how supportive they all were. Also really loved all the little "behind the scenes" on their respective instagrams. Benefits from working on a big project with a large ensemble cast of young budding actors I guess.

I could not believe when JB said Moon Lovers was well-represented when Lee Jun Ki was clearly robbed.

He won Hallyu star because of the fans but he was left out for his incredible performance. LMH is good but LOTBS has not completed airing and his performance is not as phenomenal as LJK and though he overshadowed JJH, LJK on the other hand was spectacular acting against a weak actress like IU and rise above a hot mess drama. Even Jang Geun Suk could win Top Excellence????

SBS Sucks. Suck! Suck! Suck! I hope they will run into train of bad luck in 2017 for robbing LJK.

I agree. The Hallyu Star award seemed like a consolation prize for not giving him a Top Excellence Actor award, which I think he clearly deserved. The thing I don't get is that since they were breaking down the awards into so many categories and all, and Fantasy and Genre were clearly treated as seperate categories for the Excellence and Special awards, why couldn't they have it separated for the Top Excellence Actor as well? Then they can award Kim Rae Won and Park Shin Hye for Doctors under the Genre category, and Lee Joon Gi, Lee Min Ho, and Jun Ji Hyun under the Fantasy category. Since they were clearly just handing them out, might as well make sure nobody was left out.

Forget about categories and double awards. This whole award thing with all stations are about recognizing the actors who bring in the ratings and popularity.

Despite my cynical view on ratings, they do matter. They get you recognition and awards. They also mean more opportunities, offers and choice of projects. It's all business.

International fans also mean nothing except the opportunity to sell the rights to air the drama in other countries. I don't know if SBS benefited directly or at all from Moon Lovers' international sales. I guess the bulk or all should go to the production house?

I for one feel that without Lee Joon Gi, MLSHR would've been completely buried by MBDC. At least with him leading, they still managed to hold their own on average albeit disappointing ratings. So I believe that credit should be given where credit is due. Anyway, I just don't understand why they just couldn't have separated the Genre and Fantasy categories for Top Excellence so they could award more people. Like weren't they doing that the entire award show? Manipulating the categories and doubling the awards just so they could award more people? Unless this was a conscience decision by the SBS execs to send a message that since the drama did poorly in ratings, we don't think you deserve any acting awards, but here's a Hallyu Star award since the drama was well received internationally? That's just low in my opinion.

While I do never take these awards too seriously, I agree that Lee Jun Ki should get Top Excellence.. But here we talk about ratings too.. Ratings are always important to tv networks as it is one of the most recognizable measure for popularity and success. Success = money and tv networks just like any other business entity needs money. They'll give highest reward for the ones who bring them money. So judged by the ratings, it makes sense if LOTBS and Doctors stars are awarded with Top Excellence, in spite of acting skills (or lack thereof).

And if you guys feel it's unfair to give Top Excellence for Lee Min Ho over Lee Jun Ki.. Just feel how unfair it was to give Top Excellence for Suzy over Go Hyun Jung (MBC 2013), yeah you're reading it correctly! It's my fave example on how acting skills will always be overshadowed by popularity and ratings no matter what. And imagine if RDTK got around 10% ratings and overshadowed by the others, I don't think Han Suk Kyu would win the Daesang if that's the case even if he's the best actor than other candidates by a mile..

YES. Ever since that Top Excellence award was given to Suzy, I have not taken ANY of these awards seriously. I come and look at the dresses, skim the comments, and call it a day. It is actually amazing how often good acting gets overlooked in favor of popularity, ratings, idols and - oy! - kisses.

Hei, what's wrong if Jang Geun Suk won that award?? He really deserves it, his acting in Jackpot got praised by K-media n K-nets..there were no any complains about his performance in Jackpot. Just because your bias didn't get any acting awards you don't have to making down the other actor like that..

I was referring to Jang Geun Suk because he also came from a low rated drama and managed to nab Top Excellence. So why the hell LJK could not be merited just because his drama tanked? You guys simply love taking people words out of context, spin them and make a fuss out of nothing.

I know how this game works, and I get how ratings work but I think if you win an award for "Best Actor" it should be because you actually were ...subjective I know but there aren't many who are going to compare the LMH and LJG performances and pick LMH. I say this though LMH was my gateway to K-Drama.

What is the perk to bringing in the high ratings....you get paid more per episode. That's all you should expect and that's no small thing.

This is why these shows are a joke. Normally I don't care but LJG got frigging robbed. Also, the actors know how this works....so don't they know it isn't about their acting most of the time anyway? The gal from Come Back Mister was fantastic. That award means something because everyone knows CBM got crushed by DOTS. That is the standout award for me for this station. So good job there.

Was Jeon Ji Hyun left out because she didn't attend? But so did Kim Rae Won and he won Top Excellence.

If I had watched any of LOTBS, I would have rolled my eyes at Lee Min Ho getting Top Excellence and alongside with that, JJH not getting any.

I couldn't stand LMH after Heirs but now, I am back at being neutral. He still isn't the best actor among his peers by any measure. However, he has improved and become more likable with this role.

I stopped watching LOTBS but I was surprised that I liked LMH's performance more than JJH in those first few eps I saw. Maybe her character is not well written and fleshed out but I didn't find her funny, cute or enjoyable in any sense. It felt as if she was doing her same old stuff and it's gotten old and tired.

I agree with you on two points: I'm very neutral when it comes to Lee Min Ho - I have not encountered a drama that made me impressed with his acting.

And I also feel like JJH's acting in LOTBS is cute, but I feel like its very similar to her YWCFTS and Sassy Girl characters. People may disagree, but I feel as if she is always playing a "quirky" character. Nothing wrong with that - it's jut that her mermaid character does not stand out.

That being said - I'm still watching LOTBS and enjoying it! I don't really analyze dramas; they are a fun respite from studying and working ;D

It's the new year and I really didnt want to make thinks sour.
But its official Dramabeans definitely doesn't particularly like or see PSH as favourable at all.
Initially, I thought it was just those leaving comments, but its clear the official members have a low opinion of the girl, to some degree, which is transparent in their writing.

She rarely gets acknowledgment on this particular site and that's fine(especially, if you go by the saying..if you have nothing nice to say don't say nothing at all) and funny enough, in the past I perceived it as such when it came to Javabeans and co.; its clear they have their particular favourites, like we all do....sadly though you've got to be some type of desperate to have to go as far back as 5 years just to point out if she wore a similar gown.

So what? What was the point, you weren't genuinely trying to give a complement. It was subtle but in poor taste....its very much noted. I know dramabeans has influence in the international community and to a large extent affect the choices in taste that viewers take on. I do find it at times helpful, however I will be conscious enough to avoid any future posts with Park shin hye content.

Park Shinhye does get very polarizing comments. While she is regarded as a top actress in Korea, she is widely disliked by international audience. Especially on DB, people go on and on about her kiss scenes and Cha Eun-sang role which happened 3 years ago.

Doctors was a breakout role for her, in terms of acting and/or leading a drama by herself. So she absolutely deserved the award. More so, Doctors got higher ratings over LOTBS. JJH is fantastic as well but her role is nothing spectacular.

I'd not say she is disliked by international audience when all her dramas have been doing well in all the streaming sites including Doctors which the male lead isn't a hot young hallyu star. Her star power alone is enough for people to check out her work.
But she does have a lot of haters mostly from different ships or fans of other actresses or idols because they think their biases are better but not as loved and popular as her.
Last, she has been on top of Hallyu since 2009. It's almost 8 years now so her fans are getting older and not as active to promote or defend her like newly rising actors actresses with new fans. So you might get the impression that she is disliked...

I don't think JB's comments on PSH's dress was something can be considered as insult or it shows how unfavourite she is here. I mean regardless of anyone whether he/she is likeable or favourite here, when It comes to acting / dress / suit, everyone has honest and different opinion.

People here MOSTLY either loves an actor/actress or completely dislikes them. There are those that belong in the in-between sometimes.

I really feel bad for actors who continually want to prove themselves but people still can't appreciate even the slightest of effort just because they already decided they don't like them.

*whispers* Sometimes, it would feel like "knetz-attacking-a-star-to-doomsville" atmosphere.

Nevertheless, I think they are still entitled to their opinion (just like you and me) and that's what makes this site interesting. Agreeing to disagree and keeping respect to each other or I hope so.

I agree 100 %. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion but it should go this way ’I love GHJ acting so much, she is very talented’ and NOT this way ’GHJ is gazillion times better actress than PSH/insert other actress, she doesn’t deserve this and that etc.’ Even I definitely think LJK deserved top excellence award but I don’t go on and trash LMH as an actor
