53rd Baeksang Arts Awards

It was a good day to be a goblin. The 53rd annual Baeksang Arts Awards were held on May 3, 2017, and the stars were out in full force to collect trophies for the best films and dramas of the past year. There are lots of awards ceremonies throughout the year for the film industry and station awards for dramas at the end of each year, but the Baeksangs award both film and television and consider any drama regardless of broadcaster, which makes the pool of entries more interesting and diverse.

The Daesang (Grand Prize) went to Park Chan-wook’s The Handmaiden in the film section and Kim Eun-sook’s The Lonely Shining Goblin in the TV section, making this writer Kim Eun-sook’s second Baeksang Daesang in a row after last year’s win with Descended From the Sun. Best Drama was then awarded to Dear My Friends (other nominees for best drama were W–Two Worlds, Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, and Moonlight Drawn By Clouds).

In film, veteran Song Kang-ho picked up a top acting award for his Occupation-era thriller Age of Shadows, and Sohn Ye-jin continued her trophy-sweeping tour across the land for The Last Princess. In TV, Goblin Gong Yoo took home the best actor award (other nominees were Han Seok-kyu for Romantic Doctor, Jo Jung-seok for Jealousy Incarnate, Namgoong Min for Chief Kim, and Park Bo-gum for Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, which sort of makes me wish they could’ve had a five-way tie).

But I was the most ecstatic for Seo Hyun-jin, who won the best actress award for her performance in Oh Hae-young Again, because she was just AMAZING in that role (other nominees in her category were Kim Haneul for On the Way to the Airport, Park Shin-hye for Doctors, Kim Go-eun for Goblin, and Park Bo-young for Strong Woman Do Bong-soon).

Here are the rest your winners…

Gong Yoo (The Lonely Shining Goblin) in a tux never disappoints. It’s a law of the universe, and probably has something to do with that pesky immortal life he’s saddled with.

 
Seo Hyun-jin (Oh Hae-young Again) looks flawless on her big day. These types of necklines always make me nervous (I would just be hiking up my dress every five seconds), but she seems pretty confident that it’s perfectly fitted, so I’m good with it.

 
Kim Yoo-jung (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) wears my favorite look of the night. She’s glowing, her hair is perfect, her dress flutters like it’s made of something magical, and it looks comfortable to wear. Dying of envy.

 
Her Moonlight Drawn By Clouds co-star Park Bo-gum, in a classic tux. I could not get enough of the two of them sitting together and chatting, and just generally being adorable little puppies.

 
Sohn Ye-jin, here to pick up yet another trophy for The Last Princess. I don’t love the sleeves and the gauzy cape attached to the dress, but the overall shimmer-and-glow effect is pretty (but honestly I think that’s just her, not the dress).

 
Chungmuro mainstay Song Kang-ho with a win for The Age of Shadows.

 
Suzy (Uncontrollably Fond) was an MC for the event and arrived on the red carpet in a navy ballgown. It was a little simpler than I would’ve liked, but I think the more interesting part of her look is her freshly chopped short hair (for her new drama While You Were Sleeping) and bright red lipstick, which is a nice change of pace for the starlet.

 
Jo Jung-seok, who was nominated for his hilarious and moving performance in Jealousy Incarnate. I love the three-piece suit.

 
Yay, Park Bo-young! I miss your face! It’s only been a few weeks since Strong Woman Do Bong-soon ended, but I miss it already. She picked up a nomination for her super-powered performance, and wore the cutest little prim-and-proper dress on the red carpet. I don’t know that it would look good on anybody else, but she looks adorable in it.

 
Her Strong Woman Do Bong-soon co-star Ji-soo.

 
Lee Yeon-hee (Hwajeong), who will be in the upcoming JTBC drama The Package. There were a LOT of embellished champagne-colored dresses on the red carpet, but Lee Yeon-hee’s looked the best (and the least bridal).

 
Park Shin-hye (Doctors) ventured outside of her comfort zone with a black floral gown, but there’s something off about the collar, or the poof in the sleeves, or the hair color… maybe there’s just too much going on, even though I’m happy she’s not wearing white or pink.

 
Ji Chang-wook (The K2), looking spiffy and smiley.

 
His The K2 co-star Yoon-ah picked up a popularity award in the film section for Confidential Assignment, and wears a beautiful splash of color. I have no idea why the bib on the neckline has to go down to her waist, which keeps me from loving the dress, but the color is so pretty, and she looks lovely.

 
Gong Seung-yeon (Introverted Boss), in another of the champagne dresses. I like the sleeves on this one. I kind of want someone to make me a T-shirt with that neckline.

 
D.O. (My Annoying Brother) picked up his second popularity award in the film section two years in a row. The blue tux is my favorite.

 
Kim Tae-ri has been Chungmuro’s new It Girl all year long, and was nominated in the new actress category for her performance in the Daesang-winning film The Handmaiden. I’ve seen her in better dresses though; this one looks strangely casual, even though it’s beaded and sparkly.

 
Lee Se-young, who picked up a new actress award for Laurel Tree Tailors (even though she debuted at the age of four). I love the neckline and the navy blue color.

 
Kim Haneul (On the Way to the Airport) somehow finds a way to wear a slightly different version of the same wedding dress to every red carpet, which I suppose is a feat in and of itself?

 
Kim Go-eun (The Lonely Shining Goblin) wore the most confusing suit-dress-coat hybrid thing (there are full-length shots in the gallery). I like her simple ponytail, which was clearly a trend of the night, but I wish she’d just worn a sleek white pantsuit—at least that’s a look I could get behind.

I've seen Seo Hyun-Jin's dress picks at other award ceremonies, and have always thought that they could be less "mature" looking. But THIS award ceremony finally did her beauty justice! She looks radiant and stunning...

I'm so so SOOOOOOOO happy for her! She fully deserves it, cos her portrayal of Oh Hae Young was a masterpiece. Can't wait to see her next drama.

I like how red carpet fashion dominates award articles. There's a lot more we can agree on fashion than the awards themselves.

She did such a good job as Plain Oh Hae-young, even when her character got super annoying, in my opinion anyway, her acting didn't diminish. I might have ended up liking Pretty Oh Hae-young as a character but Seo Hyun-jin's acting was first class.

Agree about Yoo Jung's dress- gorgeous! And available at H&M for 200 plus dollars! (Now if only I had a reason to wear a floor length gown...)

Gong Yoo's speech was touching and I'm really happy for him, but he sounds burnt out. I sincerely hope he takes a well deserved break after his fan meets, before doing any other projects. We will wait (patiently!) for you Gong Yoo Oppa! ❤️

His 2016 was truly insane, but his hard-work paid off because aside from Goblin, Age of Shadows and Train to Busan were also recognized and not to mention were box-office hits. As much as I want to see him again in a project this year, I think he needs a time off. I'd be willing to wait years for him (I've done it before lol) though it will be sad not seeing him on my screen.

I like what Sohn Ye-jin (she and Kim So-hyun look SO MUCH ALIKE, it's crazy), Gong Seung-yeon, Lee Se-young and Park Shin-hye (despite the busy hair, I love the dress) are wearing. Same with Lee Yeon-hee and Lee Se-young (though LYH's dress is, if I'm not mistaken, the same one worn by Felicity Jones to the LA premiere of Rogue One?)

Congratulations to all the winners!!

I was moved by the acceptance speeches of Gong Yoo and Seo Hyunjin. They were overwhelmed with emotions. Kim Eunsook, on the other hand, was like a cute happy fangirl when she won. hehe! I may not be a fan of all her works, but damn she is a force to be reckoned with in the industry. Ryu Junyeol taking home his 2nd best new actor award though, damn dude you are on a roll. MDBC OTP winning the popularity award for tv is no surprise.

Seeing the celebrities in this award show made me wish for future drama/movie pairings like Gong Yoo and Son Yejin, Gong Yoo and Seo Hyunjin, Ryu Junyeol and Kim Goeun, Park Bogum and Park Boyoung. Man, so many dream pairings last night. I hope to see some come true in the future.

Exactly what I thought about Ryu Jun-yeol, he's on a roll. Best New Actor in drama last year, and movie this year. It feels like he's going to start snatching Best Actor awards left and right anytime soon. All the veterans better be on their toes.

Agreed. I'm really happy for Jun-yeol's win. He's conquering both drama & film.

On another note, it's really crazy how Koreans are so obsessed with seniority though ha ha ha - I mean, you could be a regular / non-rookie in dramaland, and yet you could just be a rookie in chungmuro.

Oh and a fun fact, RJY debuted with an indie film (Socialphobia) before venturing into k-drama (Reply 1988).

Queen Eun-sook is so cute, I just love how giggly she was. From what I understand of her speech, she was talking about her mother and daughter, funny how she never mentions her father. Even funnier is how her heroines never have dads. Anyway, I'm hoping some kind soul helps out this fangirl and subs the award show or even just her speech. She also thanked her husband. So precious.

So many adorable fails during the live broadcast:
1. Yoon Shi-yoon announcing the winner for the wrong category, effectively spoiling the winner for the next category he's going to present. He was such a good sport though, and adorably embarrassed about his mistake but remained professional throughout.
2. The camera guy initially doing a close-up on Kim Hwan-hee instead of Chun Woo-hee (both of The Wailing) during Movie's Best Supporting Actress, which was saved by her cute "Me, it's me" reaction.
3. The presenter messing up the pronunciation of PBG's name that even he couldn't recognise it himself.

What I like:
1. The tribute for Kim Young-ae was lovely. I was in tears when RMR and PSH got on stage to present the Lifetime achievement award.
2. So many queens in the same room; can't stop fangirling after KHS, JDY, SYJ, HYR. They need to be in a project together.

I haven't had the chance to watch Dear My Friends yet, but since it has won the same categories over Goblin, as Signal did over Descendants of the Sun last year (best screenplay, best drama but lost in Daesang), I'm thinking maybe I should give it a try.

1. THAT'S what Yoon Shi-yoon did! Omg. ?? I didn't understand, so I was confused, but I think I kinda guessed that much happened since people stood up, confused. It seemed like he was definitely trying to be more playful than follow the script. I like that he was able to laugh at himself and admit his mistakes, rather than if it turned out awkward... somehow.
2. That was SO CUTE! I love the little child actress so much! She's so cute and so talented! Love that she was like, "No, not me, her," and then when Chun Woo-hee finally got in the shot, she was like, "Yes, it's me!"
3. Omg, I had a good laugh at that part because Bogummy was just like, "boopidy-doo-dah-tralala" and then someone must've been like, "It's you!" ?

THIS. This is what I want to know. Everyone knows how to look perfect in dramas but for award shows the girls all say, I'll just throw on a pretty-ish bland colorless dress, wash my hair and run out the door in my highest matching platform sandals. ??‍♀️

I remember reading somewhere (in fact, I'm sure it was a similar thread on another awards show!) that Koreans don't tend to do formal/occasion wear for women - so the closest thing they get to 'red carpet' are bridal dresses of the beige/cream/white/sparkly/embellished variety.

I dunno why but everywhere I look it seems like I'm the only one overly excited for Gong Yoo.
Isn't this his first Baeksang or? The guy has really come far in dramaland. Looking forward for what he'll do next.
I think everyone essentially is a winner when it comes to the baeksang awards. I've always viewed it as the best of the best being shortlisted and chosen and the awards arent biased or based in popularity or ratings but generally on which drama or film or actor was just so good.
So congrats to ALL the actors, actresses and dramas which got nominated.
I was particularly excited for W:2 world's,Ji Chang Wook and Park Bo Young's nominations. Especially PBY.
Her drama came out much later in the year (March right?) So for her to get nominated with all the other actresses who had dramas earlier in the year and also last year is highly commendable. You go girl.
Once again congrats to ask the nominees. They are all winners to me

Yes!! for Dear My Friends winning best drama. It was such a great show and I am happy that it got some recognition.

I am sorry but I cringed at Yoon-ah's and Park Shin-hye's dress, they need to find better stylists. Kim Yoo- jung is so damn gorgeous, and I am happy that Seo Hyun-jin won the Top excellence award. All of the actors looked great in suits, what can I say you can never go wrong with a suit. Also I agree, I love three piece suits and D.O's suit color is great, but then again I have started to love navy blue.

Kim Young-ae winning Lifetime achievement award was also something I am extremely happy about. When I heard that she had past away I actually cried. If you are a drama fan you are bound to have seen her in at least one show and she was such a familiar face that I was shocked and sad when she passed away. It is unfortunate that she received this award after passing away.

I just have to say one more thing, because Dear My Friends beat Goblin in the "Best Drama" category some very immature fans have gone to the Asianwiki page of "Dear my Friends" and have been giving it a bad score and its percentage has decreased.

Gotta say though, some of the women have to take it easy with the light/whitish powder/foundation. They already have beautiful skin to begin with, but they almost ruin their complexion with going too light on the foundation scale.

I noticed that TVN really won big. Awards for best drama, best actor, best actress (go Seo Hyun Jin!!) and the daesang for drama were all in respect of TVN dramas. It was really a great year for the cable station and a well-deserved one at that. Looking forward to OCN and JTBC's participation in next years Baeksang awards. At least for me, Tunnel really deserves something and these smaller stations don't seem to have their own award shows!

Film awards: I'm not a fan of popularity awards but the winners for the best acting awards was no surprise especially with Song Kang Ho, Sohn Ye-jin and Kim Eui-sung.

Television: I'm going to pretend that Han Suk Kyu was not nominated for best actor.
Yay for Seo Hyun-jin and Lee Se-young. It's about time!

Red carpet: Always happy to see my girls whether they win an award or not. Han Ye-ri, Kim Yoo-jung, Kim Go-eun, Kang Ha-na, Park Bo-young, Seo Hyun-jin, Sohn Ye-jin, Lee Se-young, Kim Hye-soo.

Thank you GF <3.

Best Actor nominees are really really tough, I cannot decide who I want to win. I wanted either Han Suk Kyu or Jo Jung Suk, although Gong Yoo is not a bad choice as well. Sigh.

The TV Best Actor category was tough and even Korean media and netizens discussed how the nominees are really good. I, too, could not choose who I want to win. It's that one category wherein I was rooting for them all and whoever wins.

Yeah, I'd have liked Han Suk-kyu or Jo Jung-seok to win, and I'm eternally sad Jang Hyuk wasn't even nominated. Surely he deserved a mention for his role in Beautiful Mind.

Love Lee Se-young's look - the colour of that dress is gorgeous. Kim Yoo-jung looked lovely as well.

I could not believe that the great acting master that is Han Suk Kyu being passed on for Gong Yoo and this is the second time that he was being snubbed for an actor that came out of a much popular and buzzy drama. Before that hr lost i the hands of Kim Soo Hyun whose performance is inferior than his. I lost respect on Baeksang tbh. Gong Yoo is a decent actor but he is still far from HSK's acting level.

All nominees are really good actors, though tbh not their best performances in their resume. Gong Yoo shows more depth when he was in Coffee Prince, I have never seen Han Suk Kyu anywhere else but he also didn't require to exercise his acting skill too much in Romantic Kim (his charisma was enough). Judging based on the performances in the nominated dramas alone, I'd say Jo Jung Suk brings more range and heart to his performance, and he should win. If to judge by full resumes of the actors though, I presume HSK should be the winner. Also not to discredit Park Bo Gum or anything because his performance was also moving in Moonlight.

I agree either the veteran actor, like Han Suk Kyu, should've won, based on his track record... Or, Jo Jung Seok, based on his performance in Jealousy Incarnate. But I lean more towards the latter.. because sheer range.

Feels tighter always for tv section because no supporting actor and supporting actress categories. What's the baseline? Drama also have both of them, same like movie.Hope next year, those two categories can be add in it.

At first I wasn't a fan of the dress as I don't like ruffles in general, but I've come to love the way it moves. Yoo-jung is radiant and glowing and her hair is perfect. However, this isn't her best look. She wore a much better gown for MAMA red carpet last year. She and Bo-gum look so amazing together. Congrats on the popularity award!

As for the winners, I pretty much expected the Goblin/Kim Eun-sook Daesang and Gong Yoo's best actor win. Congratulations also to Dear My Friends and Noh Hee-kyung for bagging best drama and script, and to RDTK for best director. Seo Hyun-jin deserves that acting award despite my qualms with her character in OHYA.

Can't fault Gong Yoo for getting it, even though all the runner ups did very well in their own dramas, and I personally would've gone for Jo Jung Seok.

Seo Hyun Jin I am very very happy for, and think that decision would've been easier, because her acting was a cut above the rest.

Men really do have it so easy on the red carpet. Kim Yoo Jung's dress was that $200 or so one from H&M right?

All in all, a very good year in dramaland. And I should really get around to watching The Last Princess!

I'm disappointed that there wasn't a category created just so Lee Dong- Wook could win it. I enjoyed Goblin to a certain extent but I LOVED REAPER sooooo much. He's the reason I tuned in.

I was quite excited for Dear My Friends and Seo Hyun-jin. Both deserved the nominations.

I read somewhere that the 7 judges tallied votes were 4-3 against Park Bo Young. Well, It's indeed a close call between these two good actresses.
I unexpectedly became a Seo Hyun-jin fan in RDTK which I marathoned just because I have nothing to watch and I've heard good reveiws about it. Yes, It didn't disappoint! It was well written, acted, directed and executed. And I'm glad the show took home a Baeksang Award (Best Directing). Now, I'm about to marathon AOHY for my love of Seo Hyun Jin. I'm hoping for a new drama, maybe latter part of 2017 please?

Ahhh... so its PBY as a close second? I love SHJ & PBY just as much, but SHJ definitely showed more range with Oh Hae Young Again. Very glad for SHJ's recognition - been a fan of hers since Let's Eat 2 when she was still relatively lesser known.

Yippie~!

I JUST finished watching the ENTIRE award show RAW! Lawl, I'm crazy, but I was waiting forever for this award show, so of course I had to check it out! Anyways, kinda surprised Ailee didn't make an appearance to perform her hit Goblin OST, but the opera performance and the one by the group of extras was different and touching.

Love love LOVE Kim Go-eun's outfit! ?????? I was just glad she didn't repeat last year's disastrous head-to-toe wardrobe. Eeep! I was hoping she'd wear a lovely gown or form-fitting dress, but I LOVE the pant/skirt suit she wore--it was classy and chic! Just like her. ? She totally rocks the look and she looked gorgeous! ??

I didn't really like how much hair Gong Yoo had to gel back, but can't hate on the guy when it's his big night. ? His speech was sweet and I love all the little moments he shared w/ Go-eun--so precious! ?

Suzy looked GORGEOUS! Both of her looks that night was lovely. She's really rocking her new short 'do and I love the navy blue dress and overall look on her the best.
Apparently Kim Yoo-jung's dress is from H&M and costs like $200+ I'm just still shocked at how grown she looks now. She's really matured into a beautiful young lady.

I was surprised that Lee Se-young won the Best New Actress in TV award because I thought that Minah or even Nana put on a more impressive performance in their respective roles, but seeing that Lee Se-young's made her acting debut at the age of four... well, congrats to her!

Love seeing Kim Go-eun together with Ryu Joon-yeol even though they were kinda awkward (because they had to follow a script?). Lol! I saw a clip of them teasin' each other bts/while the camera showed the nominees and it made me want to see them in another project together! I basically need Go-eun to be in everything with everybody. ???

Oh Minah and Nana were not much better than Lee Se Young. it is only their roles that actually better not the performance in my opinion. LSY's character in LTT could be easily become total annoying if it is fall in the wrong hand.But she made her role not a total annoying, but also loveable, endearing and someone we can sympathize with too. I was annoyed at first but slowly I love her and then she and her bf became the reason I watched this drama.

Congrats to all the winners ~~!!!
- I love the color of Seo Hyun Jin's dress-- it's different from your typical pink, black, or whites =)
- Kim Yoo Jung is back!! Girl is back and ready to slay ~~~!!!! Fun fact: Kim You Jung's dress is from H&M and retails for $200-something vs. everyone else's looks that are probably in the thousands >.<
- Park. Bo. Gum. ... Need I say more??? ... Heart eyes... Heart eyes everywhere...
- Ji Soo, so tall, so statuesque!!!
- Park Bo Young unni... I luff her to bits, this peanut-sized untie <3 Such a sweet girl ~~ She glows in any- and everything she wears <3
- Oh, wow, why does it feel like forever since I've seen YoonA with not-dyed hair? heh
- Son Ye Jin's dress, in my opinion, looks better when there's a backlight shining upon it and making it sparkle, otherwise, it looks like another typical flow-y dress
- (B1A4's) Jinyoung rocks the patterened suit effortlessly
- If I were to pick a favourite out of the sea of white dresses of the night, it would be Kang Hanna's white dress; I simply love it

* Regret of the night: Not being able to see Park Bo Young arrive together with/ on the arm of Park Hyung Sik, our dear Mr. President T.T I miss them together so much ~~!!! .... Was Hyung Sik even invited???

Sadly, I think PHS was not invited. He has been nominated for the Baeksang newcomer category once though, with What Happens To My Family. He's also too 'new' to be nominated for the Best Actor category (plus the contenders are also too fierce, I'd say).

PHS had a lot of netizen votes and was placed fifth overall in the popularity contest (Most Popular Male in TV), losing out ultimately to Park Bo Gum.

Not to worry, the time will come for our PHS!

I was wondering about PHS too...not sure how these award ceremonies work, but how come Park Bo Young was already nominated for SWDBS, the drama aired this year and recently ended? Does that mean that SWDBS won't be nominated next year, so then no PHS possible nomination/awards?! I guess yes, PHS will have his time. He is well on his way for some recognition! Thanks for the above information!

Highlight for me was the fancam showing Jo Jung Suk interacting with Park Bo Young backstage, man they are so so cute with the playful handshake and beaming smiles! It makes me want to rewatch OMG. Bonus is DO following Jo Jung Suk around like puppy - I hope for a reunion soon, but most importantly, I miss both of them in my small screen, I hope they will be back soon!

Best dress of the night for me is Son Ye Jin's and special shoutout for Kim Yoo Jung for wearing H&M dress so so gracefully, I wonder if it's still available in my country's outlet, I bet it runs out so quick throughout Asia.

I feel like Park Shin Hye and Park Bo Young need a new stylist but it could be their own quirky style too so each to their own.

Yay for Seo Hyun Jin!

Totally agree! If I were to choose from all the dresses that were worn that night to wear myself, I'd choose SYJ's. But I'd probably need to bring my own shine and glimmer if I want to achieve the same effect it had on her.

Anyone else think that Kim Hye-soo's dress looks exactly like the one J.Lo wore for the Met Gala??

Also why do they even separate out male and female actors into categories (in any awards show)? It's not like gender makes someone a better actor? It's not like sports, you can't out-act someone... oh well... maybe the patriarchy

I almost teared up after knowing that Seo Hyun-Jin has won the best actress tonight. You're my best Korean actress so far. You've never disappointed me and always surprised me with every project you were in. I liked you so much in RTDK, but I think I'm loving you more and more in Oh Hae-Young Again. I began watching Oh Hae-Young Again two days ago and now am catching up at ep. 15. I just know that you were created in this world for that role. Everything in that show is fantastic, esp. you and Eric Mun.

Go Go my girl SHJ, hit it big again and again in the future. I'll always support you. *finger hearts*

I'm not really fond of medical dramas so I'm skeptic at first but I'm so glad I gave RDTK a try week ago (It's so good!).
Seo Hyun-jin gave her character much depth despite being simply written. Her charm & adorableness (as Dr. Yoon) makes her portrayal looked natural and unique.
I unxpectedly became a huge Seo Hyun Jin fan after watching. Where the heck am I all this time that I just recently discovered a gem?
And to feed my fangirl heart, I'm about to start AOHY.
