APAN ìê´ì ì¼êµ´ë¤


The 2018 APAN Star Awards were held at Kyunghee University on October 13. Kim Seung Woo was the emcee for the night’s ceremonies.


“Mr. Sunshine” was the biggest winner of the night after being awarded “Drama of the Year” and the Grand Prize (Lee Byung Hun). It also earned Kim Tae Ri a Best New Actress award.


“Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food” took home three awards, including two for lead actor Jung Hae In, and “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?” and “My Ahjussi” both got two awards apiece, including a Top Excellence Award for IU and Park Seo Joon.




In his Grand Prize speech, Lee Byung Hun said, “I wanted to say a lot of things here so I wouldn’t regret anything, but my head is in a whirl. ‘Mr. Sunshine’ had so many people working on it, to the point where there was a B team and C team for the production crew. I worked with some amazing co-stars. There are so many people I want to thank. A lot of people had to help me achieve the miracle of looking even one year younger than I really am.”


He continued, “This drama had five main characters. Kim Min Jung, Byun Yo Han, Yoo Yeon Seok, and Kim Tae Ri – I learned from them all. I am proud of them as their senior, but I also realized that I can’t become complacent. All the supporting actors were main characters as well. I came to trust director Lee Eung Bok a lot and I think that Kim Eun Sook is an amazing person.” He also thanked his managers and the people who work at his agency.

‘Mr. Sunshine’ Lee Byung-hun wins top prize at APAN Star Awards


By Yim Hyun-su The Korea Herald


Actor Lee Byung-hun who starred in hit TV series “Mr. Sunshine” won big at this year’s APAN Star Awards, bringing home the grand prize.


Despite the category being one of the most hotly contested, the veteran actor managed to fend off competition from the likes of Kim Nam-joo from “Misty” and Jeon Seung-woo from “Life,” adding yet another award to his glittering career.


During his acceptance speech, Lee said many staff and actors worked together for “Mr. Sunshine” and that he had a lot of people to thank.

“There were five main characters and I learned so much from them and also was proud of them as their senior,” the actor said.


Lee laughed as he quipped, “With the effort to make me look even one year younger, we managed to pull off a miracle.”


The APAN Star Awards bills itself as the only awards in South Korea where all nominated works are from a drama-oriented TV network.

So happy to see actress Kim So Yeon presenting the Daesang to LBH. th_wub2.gif Brings back such good memories from IRIS' Hyunjun & Sunhwa combo and the KBS Awards 2009 particularly. Still hoping that both actor would reunite in a new project, action or non-action movie or drama.th_pwettybunny.gif


BH & MJ.. not Mrs. Lee.. but Ms. Kim/HiNa :lol:

I think this the part which Lee Byung Hun thanked his agency & staff during the Daesang speech. Wonder if he's now the new manager for Byunghun.. 


Tweeted by BH Entertainment last night, in the comment section the Korean fans are asking for a fan-meeting in Korea.

Couples with age gap now normal in K-dramas

By Dong Sun-hwa The Korea Times


Couples with big age gaps are now nothing extraordinary in Korean dramas ― many of the couples have age differences of 10 years or more. 




Song Hye-kyo and Park Bo-gum will star in an upcoming TV series, "Boyfriend." Yonhap


"Mr. Sunshine," a just-ended 24-episode TV series penned by star writer Kim Eun-sook, grabbed attention as soon as the leading cast was revealed ― actor Lee Byung-hun, 48, and Kim Tae-ri, 28.


Many claimed the pair would not be able to create romantic chemistry, but instead would look more like an uncle and a niece. 


However, the drama proved popular, with the last episode rating 18 percent viewership. It was also acclaimed for putting the spotlight on the forgotten fighters of the Joseon Kingdom who struggled for the freedom of their nation. 




Lee Na-young and Lee Jong-suk will appear in a drama tentatively titled "Romance is a Supplement." Yonhap


"People are less reluctant about couples with a big age gap these days," an industry source told Yonhap News Agency Tuesday. "What's more crucial is the content ― viewers do not watch dramas if the content is not interesting." 


A myriad of upcoming TV series reflect such a trend. For instance, actor Park Bo-gum and Song Hye-kyo will star in the drama "Boyfriend," which is set to go to air on Nov. 28. Song is 37 and Park is 25.


Actor Lee Jong-suk will appear on a forthcoming TV series tentatively titled "Romance is a Supplement" with actress Lee Na-young, who is 10 years his senior. The actor is 29.
