    Wow IHYV is nominated for 7 awards. Go IHYV. Go Hye Jung and Soo Ha aka Lee Bo Young & Lee Jong Suk. Was surprised that Jung Woong In is nominated for Top Excellence Actor, as I didn’t expect supporting actor to be nominated. He totally deserved it though and I think he may win that category.

  2. Aimee says:

    *ups typo* I meant Hye Sung :D

  3. Dee says:

    3 actresses who were in KDrama adapted from Jdoramas are nominated for the Grand Prize. That’s wicked. It will be a very tight race as all five of them deserved to win. But if they use “rating” as part of their judgement, then Lee Bo Young will likely to take home the grand prize.

  4. Moonlight says:

    I bet Moon Chae Won will get the Top Female Excellence Award..
    Undeniable talented and brilliant actress..^^

  5. mitgyong says:

    I want Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin for the best couple >.<

  6. ernani says:

  8. AnnMichelle says:

    Lee Seung Gi! His performance in Gu Family Book is spectacular!

  9. juvita anjani says:

    I love LJS. I like Lee Jong Suk with Lee bo Young cause they really matches

  10. Cathlyn says:

    Lee jung shin for the best rookie actor. His acting is the best. XD

  11. Nuch says:

    I hope Lee Mi Sook (You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin) wins the Female Top Excellence (Best Actress) and Lee Jong Suk & Lee Bo Young (I Hear Your Voice) wins the Best Couple.

  12. Candy says:


    Just seeing these now… I’m going for Lee Seung Gi and Moon Chae Won for the Top Excellence for sure. Seung-gi was beyond marvellous in Gu Family, and MCW is always awesome. Its good to see JSW getting recognized too – but I’m surprised he’s nominated in the Top excellence, instead of excellence. But he’s brilliant so I’m glad he’s in the more competitive and better league lol.

    Good luck everyone! =)

    Lee Mi Sook for female top excellence (Best Actress) awards.

    I just love Lee Mi Sook for her character in You’re The Best Lee Soon Shin. I was deeply impressed by her acting power,when their faces appear on screen, there is a tendency to forget completely about the lovely young actresses sharing the camera’s focus.I think that her deserve to be win best actress awards. She an incredible talent.

  14. Kwan says:

    *Female Top Excellence (Best Actress):
    – Lee Mi Sook (You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin)
    – Gong Hyo Jin (The Master’s Sun)

    *Best Child (Teen) Actor:
    – L (Infinite) (The Master’s Sun)

    Based on dramas that I watched, I hope the winners are as follows:
    – Daesang: Go Hyun Jung who was fantastic as Teacher Ma in Queen’s Classroom.
    – Best Picture: I can’t vote on Good Doctor since it’s not finished yet and some dramas’ ending ruined it for me. So either Childless Comfort / I Hear Your Voice are the best candidates.
    – Best PD: Kim Kyu Tae (TWTWB). TWTWB is beautifully & cinematographically stunning. It’s a feast to my eyes.
    – Best Writer: Kim Soo Hyun (Childless Comfort).
    – Male Top Excellence | Excellence Actor: Jung Woong In | Lee Jong Suk
    – Female Top Excellence | Excellence Actress: Lee Mi Sook | Soo Ae
    – Rookie Actor | Actress: Kim Woo Bin | Han Yeo Seo
    – Best Couple: Lee Jong Suk & Lee Bo Young
    – Best Child Actor: Kim Hyang Gi – HaNa ^^
