Actress Song Ji-hyo has confirmed her participation as the winner of the “2021 Asia Artist Awards” Popularity Award. As a result, attention is also focused onto another winner – Kim Seon-ho’s move.
Song Ji-hyo has been steadily active in acting with many famous titles such as “Jumong”, “Was It Love”, “Princess Hours”, “Frozen Flower”. Since 2010, she has been showing off her bold and easy-going charm as a regular member of SBS “Running Man” and has been playing as the team’s ace. She has even formed an entertainment fandom by showing her excellent teamwork and chemistry with the “Running Man” members.
In particular, Song Ji-hyo is drawing attention by receiving the popularity award for three consecutive years from the “2019 Asia Artist Awards” to this year’s 2021 AAA. In order to repay the love of global fans, she confirmed her attendance at the 2021 AAA, raising fans’ expectations.
After Song Ji-hyo’s announcement, the public is curious whether those who won the Popularity Award in other categories would attend. According to the organizers earlier, a vote was held to select the top spot in a total of six categories. However, the spotlight is shining on the category of male actors as Kim Seon-ho is the winner with 1,787,702 votes (44.3%).
Kim Seon-ho recently got into a controversy over his private life regarding his ex-girlfriend. He then dropped out of KBS2’s entertainment program “2 Days 1 Night Season 4,” where he appeared as a fixed cast, and also dropped out of many scheduled works. Many of his advertisements were also taken down. Even though the public seems to be siding with him now after a media outlet released the truth about his ex-girlfriend, fans are still curious whether he will attend public events like awards ceremonies.
“2021 AAA” includes actors Lee Jung-jae, Lee Seung-gi, Yoo Ah-in, Han So-hee, Moon Ga-young,…as well as singers and groups like Seventeen, The Boyz, aespa, Stray Kids, Kang Daniel, STAYC, ITZY, Brave Girls,…
Overseas artists from other Asian countries such as Japan, Thailand,… will also attend the ceremony.
