Kim Hee Ae Wins Best Actress at SDA, Thanks Yoo Ah In
Previously reported, Secret Love Affair gets a special theatrical screening and presentation at the 2014 Seoul International Drama Awards. And according to DC, the responds were very good with viewers from different countries coming to watch it in theater.
Since I’m not too familiar with this award show, I wasn’t sure whether the drama or Yoo Ah In and Kim Hee Ae got in the nomination as well. Turned out, Kim Hee Ae was in the nominee list and she won!
Here’s the 3 hours-length video of the award ceremony, 4th August
News One reported: Kim Hee Ae Wins Best Actress at Seoul Drama Awards, Thanks Yoo Ah In in Her Speech.
Actress Kim Hee Ae received the Best Actress at the 2014 Seoul International Drama Awards for her outstanding performance in the drama Secret Love Affair. She got a lot of love from the audience with her high-quality acting as Oh Hye Won in this 2014 JTBC drama.
In her speech on stage, August 4, Kim Hee Ae thanked the judges, PD Ahn Pan Seok and Writer Jeong Seong Joo.
“My sincere thanks to the judges who submitted and selected Secret Love Affair out of all others. To Director Ahn Pan Suk and writer Jeong Seong Ju, I wish to continue working with you as one team.”
And following the gratitude expressions to the other actors and actresses in Secret Love Affair such as Shim Hye Jin, Kim Yong Geon, Park Hyuk Kwon, and Kim Hye Eun, Kim Hee Ae particularly mentioned Yoo Ah In.
“To junior (hoobae) actor Yoo Ah In, thanks for your hard work for showing the best acting skill. I’d like to tell you that I was really glad to have acting with you. And it was very exciting when we were acting together.”
Lastly she said, “I’d like to thank the viewers nationwide as well as those abroad, including China, for loving our drama and for the love that you all have given across the countries and from afar.”
It’s really nice to see that Kim Hee Ae never forgot to mention the whole drama team in her winning speeches. As our fellow SIKseekers Theresa Leung said, “Well-deserved award received and nice recognition by others and her appreciation of others who helped her getting there!”
Some Master Sik’s fans might feel that he was left out because he deserved an award for his amazing and accurate interpretation on Lee Seon Jae. I totally agree. But everything happens for a reason. Yoo Ah In himself once said that he pursued a “perfect acting”, not a recognition. More than anything, he loves that a lot of people love this drama and his character, and that it’s a high quality-commercially success.
I believe everything beautiful for its own time, and he will get more recognitions in the future 🙂 Congrats Kim Hee Ae and all Secret Love Affair Team!
