Seoul Awards honor the year's best

By Yim Seung-hye INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily



An array of stars took to the red carpet for the second edition of the Seoul Awards on Saturday evening held at Kyung Hee University’s Grand Peace Palace, eastern Seoul, and some left with several trophies in hand. 


TvN’s drama “My Mister,” which featured singer-actor Lee Ji-eun, better known as IU, and film “The Spy Gone North,” directed by Yoon Jong-bin, each received the top honors for Best Work at Saturday’s event. 


“My Mister” dealt with an unlikely friendship between a 20-something woman and her colleague in his 40s. The actors’ immersive performances and emotional direction lead to it receiving much praise.


“The Spy Gone North” starring Hwang Jung-min, Lee Sung-min and Cho Jin-woong, has been hailed as creating a new type of Korean spy flick. The story is based on a true incident that took place in 1993, when a former South Korean military officer was recruited by the National Intelligence Service to infiltrate North Korea amid leaks that North Korea was developing nuclear weapons.


Meanwhile, the Best Actor and Best Actress Awards went to Lee Byung-hun for his starring role in the successful period drama “Mr. Sunshine” and Kim Nam-joo for “Misty” in the television series category. Ha Jeong-woo received Best Actor for “Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds” and Son Ye-jin won Best Actress for “Be With You” for the film category.


The Seoul Awards is the first Awards Ceremony here to select the winners by including the public as judges. According to the organizers, public votes account for 30 percent of the final decision in order to “reflect the public opinion in the awards ceremony.”

Kim Nam-joo takes home award

Actor Kim Nam-joo received the Best Actress award at the 23rd Asian Television Awards, held Saturday at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching in Malaysia. 


The awards are considered prestigious throughout Asia and are often referred to as Asia’s Emmy Awards. 


Kim received the award for her portrayal of the intelligent prime-time news anchor Go Hye-ran in the recently wrapped JTBC drama “Misty.”


The award marks the first time the event gave an award to an actor who has appeared in a drama that wasn’t officially aired on local television outside of Korea - many international viewers watched the show via Netflix. 


“I’m so grateful for receiving the award, although all I did was just get immersed in my character as an actor,” said Kim as she accepted the award. 


“It’s been 20 years since I made a debut and this award that I have received in a foreign land is so valuable for me.” 


Kim also added that the Korean drama industry, she believes, “is the most enthusiastic and passionate scene in Korea,” and that such “energy managed to bring out great results like this one.” 


The 23rd Asian Television Awards included over 40 categories and represented the industry’s foremost recognition of independent production houses in Asia.
