The hype is now over and if last year’s SBS Drama Awards was all about The Heirs then 50th Baeksang Arts Awards is all about My Love From the Stars 😛 The most epic moment was when Lyn sang My Destiny, the music stopped and the screens started to play the scene from episode 11 where Song Yi tried to seduce Do Min Joon. Oh dear~ Jeon Ji Hyun was embarrassed although Soo Hyun was calm and then BOOM ~ it’s kissing scenes on every single big screens on the stage. That was one awesome sight and awkward moment for the both of them. But then that was not the end of it, the song ended with the red carpet kiss displaying on all big screens. HAHAHAHAHA! I just had to laugh. It would have been super duper awesome to be watching that live as a Stars fan.
As usual the fashion for the men are always less interesting than the women where all we see is the normal black suit but I kind of prefer they keep it simple and traditional rather than go all fluorescene or something! Call me conservative, I’m just not used to funny colours.
Anyway, here’s the winner’s list!

I hadn’t seen most of the nominated movies so I seriously can’t comment much about it but a huge congratulation to Lee Jung Jae and Song Kang Ho for The Face Reader and Shim Eun Kyung for Miss Granny. I had seen these 2 movies so I can say I thoroughly enjoyed their performances especially Lee Jung Jae and Song Kang Ho. As for Kim Soo Hyun winning the New Actor Award in Movie category, that is no surprise there. He was up against very talented nominees but this year is definitely his year so he gets it first.

As predicted, My Love From the Stars Kim Soo Hyun and Jeon Ji Hyun are the big winners 😀 Their thank you speeches left the drama fans and shippers plenty to swoon about too. When Soo Hyun receives both his popularity awards, he throws out at the end with: “Chun Song Yi ssi, saranghamida” and Jeon Ji Hyun saying to him, “Not having to go back to your stars (home) but stayed behind on earth Do Min Joon ssi, Soo Hyun-ah, nomu gomao, thank you really, let’s work together again.” (See Tumblr) Now now, can this two be less subtle? Hahaha! ❤ ❤ ❤
Red Carpet Fashion Parade
Jeon Ji Hyun was absolutely gorgeous in this peach-pink colour dress she wore. It is no wonder she was given the Best Style Award. I hadn’t seen this award coming but okay, she truly deserves it. She not only looks beautiful but she was elegant and charismatic on the red carpet and even when she walked up to the stage. The aura she exudes is just not the same compared to the other actresses. ❤
Kim Soo Hyun looks gentlemanly and handsome but plays it safe with a black fitted suit. I actually like that he plays it safe rather than go all flowery or wearing some extravagant colourful suit. This at least tells me this is the Kim Soo Hyun I know. ❤
Trot Lover‘s Shin Sung Rok and Jung Eunji walk the red carpet together with matching black and white 🙂 Gosh~ they are so adorable together ❤
Meanwhile sweet looking Go Ara shows off her slim body in all white baring her back and her co-star Jung Woo from Reply 1994 is sported with plain black and white suit.
Lee Bo Young is gorgeous and elegant in this all-white long dress. I like how she always goes for the simple look but they are never boring. I’m happy that she won Best Actress but feels a little sad that that is all the I Hear Your Voice team won. I think instead of Good Doctor winning the Best Drama category, it should have been I Hear Your Voice as I think overall this drama was the best in terms of executing the story-telling, direction, cinematography and script-writing (okay, minus the court scenes).
Kim Hee Ae from Secret Love Affairs looks gorgeous in that dress and is no wonder she won the Fashion Awards along with Im Si Wan of ZE:A tonight.
Actress Shim Eun Kyung (My Runaway Nodame is what I call her now) gave me a shock when she went on stage and turned around to deliver her speech. All I saw was a screwed up face and for a moment I had thought something bad happened. Then it sunk in that she was breaking down from having the big honour of receiving the Actress Top Excellence Award in the movie category. LOL!
Yeo Jin Goo lost the New Actor Award to his The Moon That Embraces the Sun hyung Kim Soo Hyun in the movie category. It’s okay, you are still young and your time will come. Lee Byung Hun also attended the ceremony.
Taecyeon of 2PM attended the award show as a presenter and it was extremely heart-warming to see him present the award to Kim Soo Hyun (his co-star in Dream High) and Baro of B1A4 was here for a nomination.
Yuri of Girl’s Generation and Park Shin Hye won the Actress Popularity Award for movie category – No Breathing and TV category – The Heirs. Yuri’s dress reminds me of peacock with the fur look-alike design representing the feathers and the long dress at the back as the peacock’s tail.
As for Shin Hye’s dress – she looks super plain and boring in black. I think the lace cardigan and the knee-length dress make her look old and as usual she plays it safe, too safe actually. She would have looked a lot more stunning if she had worn what she wore in her recent photoshoot for the fashion magazines.
I really like Kim Ji Soo‘s dress – simple but beautifully eye-catching in blue.
Choi Jin Hyuk – my heart bleeds for you for not winning the New Actor Award – TV Category for Gu Family Book even though I think you are in the industry long enough not to be nominated for ‘New’ but I supposed this award can be looked upon as a ‘Breakthrough Performance’ Award.
Min Do Hee of Tiny-G was cute in the green (?) short dress while Baek Jin Hee is elegant in the long white dress. I think among all the white dresses I’ve seen, Baek Jin Hee’s is the best.
Son Tae Young and Han Groo went with very simple dresses which I think comes across as boring especially Sohn Tae Young’s. Han Groo’s at least looks sweet but simple.
Lyn definitely wore a better dress during her performance on stage and Jin Kyung and her dress just… doesn’t do it for me but it’s not bad.
Park Seo Joon (Witch’s Romance) attended the event as a presenter – he looks dashing. Hehehe and I found some cute photos of him below too. Just had to share, lol! Lee Jung Jae is rocking the badass on the red carpet and is that a leather sling specially made for the occasion? ❤
Kim Ah Joong and Shin Dong Yub are tonight’s MCs whereas Lee Chun Hee presented the Popularity Awards for both movie and TV categories.
Sunbae-nim Son Hyun Joo is a presenter of the night while Jo Jae Hyun took home the Actor Top Excellence Award – TV Category.
BACKSTAGE & Miscellaneous Cute Photos
Gosh Matilda Tao from Taiwan! I had thought it was all an act when I saw her getting all excited over Kim Soo Hyun’s guest appearance in the China’s TV program Super Brain. It was just done to make the show seem more interesting but looks like I was wrong because she is in love with Do Min Joon ssi. Hahaha! She has posted blurry pictures of Soo Hyun walking up the stage to receive his first award and when she was the presenter of Popularity Award, she took out her phone and snap pictures of Kim Soo Hyun as he arrived on the stage, LOL! Talk about crazy in love!
