Welcome to KBS Award Camp @MissA and @cassopeia – I think if you look at the past years nomination list, dramas that aired commencing from December month through the following year are eligible to contest.  Moreover, I think it is also a promotional tool to promote the current on-going drama especially in the category of Best Couple – just my opinion. 

Shin Ha-gyun won the Daesang Award in KBS Drama Awards in 2011 for his hit drama, “Brain” which was aired from Nov 14, 2011 to Jan 24, 2012.  It was an on-going project, at the time of his receipt of the award, he was still busy filming the drama.  Well, he truly deserved the award and I think many viewers were rooting for him. The same goes with the drama, “School 2013” which was aired from Dec 3, 2012 to Jan 28, 2013 where Jang Nara won Best Actress for Drama of the Year, Miniseries  and Lee Jong-suk also won “Best Rookie/Newcomer Award” during KBS Drama Awards in 2012.

Having said that, I notice the popular weekend drama, “My Daughter Seo-yeong” – aired from Sept 15, 2012 to March 3, 2013, was at a disadvantage position since they were not nominated in 2013.  The only award they won during KBS Drama Awards 2012 is for Best Couple (Lee Sang-yoon with Lee Bo-young). Maybe, KBS has a cut-off system.  Last year (2012) belongs to “My Husband Got A Family” and anyway, KBS did award Lee Bo-young for her acting in “The Equator Man” for Best Actress in Mid-Length Drama category.  I wonder how KBS judge this year Long-length Series since TBLSS has ended while Wang’s Family is an on-going drama but with much higher rating achievement (please correct me if I am wrong).   

I am also a fan of Joo Sang-wook – love his role character in “Good Doctor”.  He may not clinch the Best Actor award this year (think he is rooting for Joo Won to win a major award) and hopefully, he gets to win the Best Supporting Actor award in a Mid-Length series. I sincerely hope my other favorite actor, Bae Soo-bin (Secret) gets to win too under this category. Pray for this to materialize - hope KBS award two actors for Best Supporting Actor (just like in 2012). I think he has a strong chance of winning under this category – maybe, up against strong contenders like Choi Min-soo (The Blade and Petal) and Lee Bum-soo (Iris 2).  If rating counts, Good Doctor is in a very good position. Anyway, it’s just my own justification.  

@cassopeia - Yoona may walk away with Popularity Award.

Yeah, that they are trying to promote the drama and increase the ratings could also be a reason why they include Prime Minister and I in this year's award show. I think you got a typo, Shin Ha-gyun won the Daesang Award in KBS Drama Awards in 2011 not 2012. ;D
Many LBY fans wondered what KBS will do with MDSY. It was really successful and LBY got praised for her performance but the drama was already included in the award show for 2012. I think it's a pity that it didn't get nominated this year again. But then I would have worried because she was also really awesome in her SBS drama this year.
I think the ratings do matter so I think the actors/actresses of Secret and Good Doctor will get higher prizes than the ones from Blade and Petal and Iris 2. But honestly, I'm just guessing and trying to figure out what KBS will do.lol
Last year, I had a tough time watching because I didn't know half of the dramas. lol

Thanks @cassopeia for highlighted the typo error.
Totally agree with both of you @MissA and @cassopeia that LBY will shine in SBS Drama Award - just too bad that we won't see the newly married couple in one event.  Ji Sung will most probably attend KBS Drama Award and I believe we will see him on stage not once but at least twice (purely my guess)...hahaha!
BSB deserves an award for his outstanding performance as Ahn Do-hoon and Hwang Jung-eum will definitely win an award too. I am rooting for Joo Won to win one of the highest awards while the Best Couple should not exclude one of the most crazily-in-love couples "Han Ju-wan and Lee Yoon-ji". I wonder how many couples are they going to choose this year. Last year four deserving couples were chosen.

@Bayu Pratama - KBS nominated ALL the dramas that was aired throughout 2013 (under Miniseries and Mid-Length series category).  AD Genius, Lee Tae-baek was an interesting drama that brought up a lot of heart-felt moral issues of today's society.  It was not entirely focusing on romance but more on the world of challenging advertising skills and the genre and thematic may not be everyone's cup of tea.  
@cedricgordon - So far, there are no reports on who has declined KBS invitation to attend the ceremony unlike SBS and MBC where some of the main actors had since confirmed their non-attendance through the media.  From a post by @cynkdf at BSB's thread (thank you chingu), Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-eum confirmed their attendance. These two "Secret" actors are guaranteed-winner!
I will update this thread whenever I come across related news on this subject.

Thanks @Felicia Soh for starting the thread. as for your concern about weekend drama, i'm curious too. Wang Family really did better in rating but YTBLSS is more popular globally. so i think KBS take note about that too. you can see in my siggy i'm still addicted. kekekekeke. judging how KBS desperately catching some of the star to attend the show its understandable coz it will compete with SBS Awards at the same night who have more successful drama this year. i think Lee Bo Young will be in the SBS Awards this year coz MDSY already been nominate last year.

@FeliciaSoh, many thanks for starting this thread. Thanks to everyone else for updates, thoughts etc. I read somewhere that KBS will only release the list of acting nominations on the day of broadcast, ie 31 December.  Can anyone please confirm if this is true? If so, guess  I'll have to wait patiently for another two days before knowing whether BSB has gotten nominated for an acting award or not.

@FeliciaSoh Thanks for creating this.page. watched some of the dramas in the list and i think Bae Soo Bin should have an award for his portrayal as ADH in Secret. Well, both actors [Ji Sung] deserve to have an award. I like that Joo Sang Wook will be one of the MC. And hoping Kim Nam Gil will attend, too. Will surely watch the awards night. :D

@yoeda, thanks - like you, I have to rely on Google Translate mainly unless some kind soul who understands Korean helps to translate the article. I think that list may be for the Netizens Popularity poll?  Since IU and Jo Jung Suk have confirmed their attendance, that means your fave drama has got two winners at least :)
