Baeksang Awards is a yearly affair to honour the best Korean dramas and films.
But unlike previous editions, this year’s awards ceremony was held without a live audience. Social distancing measures put in place as the artists sat a distance away from each other.
The absence of a live audience did not dampen spirits. And the 56th Baeksang Arts Awards was no less a star-studded affair, with a host of stars in attendance.
Hosted by Park Bo Gum, Suzy and Shin Dong-yup, the award show saw both upsets and surprising wins across various categories.
When The Camellia Blooms (2020) was this year’s biggest winner, bagging a total of 4 awards. This includes Best Actor (Kang Ha Neul), Best Supporting Actor (Oh Jung Se), Best Screenplay and the Daesang (Grand Prize) for TV category.
Veteran actress Kim Hee-ae was crowned Best Actress for her outstanding role in The World of Married. The highly-rated series also took home the award for Best Director.
There was a reunion for the cross-border, on-screen couple from Crash Landing On You as both Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin received the TikTok popularity award on-stage.
The popular hit also scored wins for Best Supporting Actress (Kim Sun Young) and the Bazaar Fashion Icon Award (Seo Ji-hye).
Congratulations to all winners.
