    I’m never really that interested in award shows, but I’m pretty excited about this one. I’m so proud of these young actors playing such mature roles. Noonim theme anybody? Anywho, Yoo Ah in rocks!

    Congrats! The only sout thing is Kim Hee Ae’s lack of nomination. I guess there were closed door discussions about her nom and they decided to award her in the movie category instead.

    All the wank on the english languge blogs is quite hilarious though. The Baeksang awards never stopped being only about quality a long time ago. Were they ever? Of course not. Or any award, really? Sorry, that’s not true. Most Korean film awards were known for corruption for decades.
    But seeing all these whiney fangirls, because precious oppa is not nominated instead of these despicable flower boys? LOL

    Seems like he won’t attend the awards show. He’ll be promoting the SLA on the 27th in Beijing. The award winner most probably will be Jo Jae Hyun anyway.

    • Furbabe says:

      Aww..just got the confirmation from my friend too that he’ll be in Beijing on the 27th. But him going to Beijing for SLA promotion? That’s awesome! Thanks for the info, strawberry πŸ™‚
