Stars will rise at the Baeksang Art Awards.
Winners who won the award at the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards a year ago and stars who are about to reunite with viewers with their new works will all head to the stage of the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards. Despite their busy schedule, they are united only for the Baeksang Art Awards.
The winners of last year’s awards are stepping up to celebrate and encourage this year’s nominees. Yoo Jae-seok, who won 2 Daesang awards (at the 49th and 57th ceremonies) in the TV category of the Baeksang Arts Awards, will appear as the presenter of the Daesang winner in the TV category. Yoo Jae-seok, who boasts his unshakable top position, will go on stage to celebrate his senior and junior colleagues. Director Lee Joon-ik, who has a special relationship with Baeksang Arts Award (nominees of the 42nd Baeksang Awards, and Daesang winner of the 52nd and 57th Baeksang Awards), will also attend as a presenter in the movie category to console the film industry, which has been struggling due to the pandemic.
Shin Ha-kyun and Kim So-yeon, who won the “Best Actor/Actress” award in the TV category, will also join the ceremony. Loved for their impressive acting skills last year in the dramas “Monster” and “Penthouse,” respectively, they are back to meet viewers for the first time in a long while. Yoo Ah-in and Jeon Jong-seo, who won the “Best Actor/Actress” award in the movie category, also decided to attend. In the case of Jeon Jong-seo, she is nominated for the “Best Actress” award in this year’s movie category and is aiming for a second consecutive win.
Oh Jung-se, who created a famous scene of announcing his own name during the announcement of the “Best Supporting Actor” award in the TV category last year, will reunite with Yeom Hye-ran, who played his wife in “When the Camellia Blooms.” Park Jung-min and Kim Sun-young, who are constantly active in their respective positions, also attended to congratulate the winner of this year’s award and remember the glory of last year’s award.
Lee Seung-gi and Jang Do-yeon, the main characters of the entertainment award with their smooth hosting and entertainment sense, will also visit the Baeksang stage to deliver the award. Choi Soon-jin and Lee Bong-ryeon, who were winners of the “Best Actor/Actress” award in the theater category, will also be presenters for the spark of hope in the theater industry. Lee Do-hyun, Park Joo-hyun, Hong Kyung, and Choi Jung-woon, who received the “Rookie of the Year” award, will also head to Baeksang.
Some actors chose the Baeksang Art Awards as their first return stage to meet their fans ahead of the release of their new work. Yeom Jung-ah, who will return through JTBC drama “Cleaning Up” in June, will visit the Baeksang Arts Awards ceremony before the release of her work. This will be her first drama in three years since “SKY Castle“. She will appear as a presenter to recall the pleasant memories of her winning the “Best Actress” award at the Baeksang Arts Awards two years ago. Kang Ha-neul and Lee Yoo-young, the main characters of JTBC’s new drama “Insider,” which is scheduled to premiere next month, will also appear as presenters. Lee Da-hee and Cha Eun-woo, who did their best on Jeju Island for the filming of tvN drama “Ireland,” which is scheduled to air in the second half of this year, will show their gorgeous presence at the awards ceremony. Choi Min-ho and Chae Soo-bin, the main characters of the Netflix drama “The Fabulous,” showed off their loyalty by coordinating their schedules for the Baeksang Arts Awards despite their busy filming schedules.
Moon So-ri, a former stage actor from the Chaimu theater, willingly decided to attend the ceremony this year to congratulate and encourage her theater colleagues and juniors who did not give up the stage despite the difficult situation due to the pandemic last year. Baeksang’s theater category will be presented with the energy of the revival of the theater industry. Park So-dam, who has been absent from activities for health reasons since December last year, will re-appear in public in good health for the first time in six months. She was also nominated for the “Best Actress” in the movie category for the movie “Special Cargo.” The viewers can meet Park So-dam again this time as the presenter of “Aspiring Young Stage Actor”.
Go Soo will applaud and show his gratitude towards the on-field staff who have devoted themselves to the work in this field as a presenter in the TV and film categories. Best friends Kim Woo-bin and Lee Kwang-soo will attend the Baeksang Arts Awards side by side to show their strong friendship and witty talks that connects tvN’s entertainment show “Boss By Chance 2.”
