>70% -> at least 50% total broadcast rule changes
A lot of viewers have praised Kim Hyun Joo‘s chameleon acting in SBS weekend drama I Have a Lover however according to SBS 70% rule, neither she nor her drama made the cut for this year’s end-of-year award ceremony. But the viewers have spoken! SBS decided to change their criteria – now all dramas aired in 2015 with at least 50% total broadcast will make this year’s cut. A representative from SBS clarified that it doesn’t mean she will win but due to the rule change, she’s eligible to be nominated. It’s their policy for not releasing the list of acting awards candidates prior to the award ceremony.
Six Flying Dragons and I Have a Lover can now be included as nominees so there’re huge possibilities the award ceremony will be dominated with these two dramas. People have already talking about Kim Hyun Joo, Cho Jae Hyun, Kim Myung Min or Yoo Ah In winning this year’s daesang though I thought Joo Won, Soo Ae, Kim Rae Won also did well in their respective SBS dramas. Soo Ae and Mask co-star Yeon Jung Hoon recently won Best Actress & Best Actor award at Grimae Awards hence despite their low 10s average rating, hopefully Mask will take home at least one award this year. Joo Won and Kim Tae Hee have confirmed their attendance. Actress Jun Ji Hyun who won Daesang award last year is currently heavily pregnant hence still undecided whether she’ll be presenting Daesang trophy to this year’s Daesang winner.
Do you think it’s fair SBS abruptly changed the rules to accommodate two dramas which haven’t even finished airing? I don’t think it’s fair – but it’s up to them to award anyone they
want to thank believe deserve to win. 🙂
2015 SBS Drama Awards will be held on 31 December 2015 and will be hosted by Lee Hwi Jae & Lim Ji Yeon.
