No awards ceremony for tvN this year
by | October 16, 2014 | 64 Comments
Remember when cable station tvN announced it was launching its own awards ceremony? Never mind; they’ve nixed the idea after all. This doesn’t mean the station will never host their own awards show, but perhaps they jumped the gun in planning. Announced only in August and described as being in the very early stages, the...

2014 Buil Film Awards
by | October 3, 2014 | 18 Comments
I know, another red carpet event, which brings us to three in three days. This one, the Buil Film Awards, is actually in conjunction with the Busan International Film Festival, which we posted about yesterday and which’ll be running for the next week and a half. The Buil Film Awards was a much smaller event... More »

2014 Busan International Film Festival’s opening red carpet
by | October 2, 2014 | 57 Comments
It’s red carpet season! I both love and hate awards/festival season (fall-winter, mostly) because on one hand, it’s never a burden to look at scores of beautiful people strutting a formal event looking (mostly) their best, but on the other, these posts can be massive and a pain to compile. But let our pain be... More »

2014 Korea Drama Awards
by | October 1, 2014 | 189 Comments
The Korea Drama Awards (part of the two-week Korea Drama Festival that kicked off today) isn’t one of the bigger award ceremonies around, but being that it’s drama-focused and inclusive of both broadcast and cable programs, it’s worth a look—even if the winners list does seem rather scattershot. The awards ceremony was held in the... More »

tvN launches its own award ceremony
by | August 13, 2014 | 86 Comments
The Big Three broadcasters have one more reason to be wary of tvN, which is nipping at their heels as a rival — and doing a frankly bang-up job of becoming a worthy competitor despite its smaller, newer rookie status as a cable programmer. Now tvN has announced that it’ll be launching its own awards... More »

50th Baeksang Arts Awards
by | May 27, 2014 | 192 Comments
Spread the love around must’ve been this year’s mantra at the 50th annual Baeksang Awards, where the (somewhat) best of both film and television come to pick up shiny trophies. Once you get past the initial Huh, what, why? of the nominee list, the winners list is no surprise. There wasn’t a big sweep by... More »

Nominees announced for Baeksang Arts Awards

In the past, I haven’t posted up full nominee rosters for the big awards ceremonies—sometimes I miss the nomination announcements and sometimes I just want to wait to see the winners list. But I figure it may be a point of interest for y’all, so here you go: the nominees for the 50th Baeksang Arts... More »

2013 KBS Drama Awards
by | December 31, 2013 | 160 Comments
Here’s the last of this year’s drama awards over at KBS, where God of the Workplace, Good Doctor, and Secret were the big winners of the evening. Unsurprisingly, Kim Hye-soo took home the Daesang for her performance in God of the Workplace. She’s fabulous; her outfit, not so much. Just wait for it. Joo-won took... More »

New Year’s Eve was the big night for the SBS Drama Awards (and KBS as well, which will be up next), and Lee Bo-young came out on top for one of the year’s unexpected successes, I Hear Your Voice. (I say unexpected because the drama was given its timeslot hastily when another show fell through... More »

2013 MBC Drama Awards
by | December 30, 2013 | 240 Comments
Year-end awards are here! At least the first of the bunch is, with MBC putting on its ceremony the night before SBS and KBS follow suit with theirs. These awards ceremonies are historically more like thank-you gifts to actors than actual acting awards based on strength of performances, and it’s a fact I’ve long accepted... More »
