Hyun Bin and Park Seo Joon—these two names were already popular a few months ago, but shot up in popularity even more recently, primarily because so many people are at home, and ended up watching (and enjoying, obviously) their shows. It comes as no surprise then that these two handsome and talented gentlemen are BOTH VYING for Best Actor in the upcoming 56th Baeksang Arts Awards, to be held on June 5th, KST.
If you need a reminder, Hyun Bin is known for his flawless portrayal of the charming and enigmatic Captain Ri Jeong Hyeok in Crash Landing On You. Park Seo Joon on the other hand is known for taking on the role of Park Sae-Ro-Yi in Itaewon Class.
Also vying for the award in the same category include When the Camellia Blooms’ Kang Ha Neul, Stove League’s Namgoong Min, and Hyena’s Joo Ji Hoon.
If you’ve watched any of these shows, you’ll quickly realize how a difficult choice it is to choose from any of these five equally talented actors. Plus, if you’re a true K-Drama fanatic and have watched ALL OF THESE SHOWS, then good luck choosing, because we’re sure you’ll have a hard time.
Other notable nominees worth mentioning include Son Ye Jin (Crash Landing on You) and IU (Hotel Del Luna) for Best Actress, Yang Kyung Won (Crash Landing on You) and Yoo Jae Myung (Itaewon Class) for Best Supporting Actor, and Kwon Nara (Itaewon Class), Kim Sun Young (Crash Landing on You), and Seo Ji Hye (Crash Landing on You) for Best Supporting Actress.
Oh, and 2020’s favorite film “Parasite” is also included in the nominations. Check out the full list of nominees here.
