  1. 1 : Miae Says:

    I don’t understand how Lee Jung Suk won the best actor award from a show with less than 10 percent final rating. Only in Korea where beauty and youth are the only things that matter could this happen. Like many Korean actors and actresses, Lee jung suk had a costmetic surgery to fix his flat nose and became an actor from a model. Now, all these naive girls and older women drool over him and he probably won the best actor award because they all voted for him. I admit that he is a good actor but he doesn’t deserve getting a best actor of the year.

    It is sad to see our society is becoming so vain…

    …I disagree that Lee Jung Suk doesnt diserve the awards he got, and thank God you said he is a wonderful actor…that he got these awards under the “MBC banner” must mean something…its not the whole korean drama awards combined by the way, but even if it were, well lets accept it in good faith…and i dont agree that LEE JUNG SUK is just a handsome face, No No No, he is more than that…and that your favourite did not win doesnt mean the ones that won did not deserve to win it…after all he did not win awards recently that i heared of…and can you count the Numerous Award “Song Jung Ki of Descendants of the Sun” won this year 2016, i dont see you or other people complaining of that…lets be happy for this hard working young Man and encourage Him further…Congratulations Lee Jung Suk!

  3. 3 : Pearlly... Says:

    P:S…and even if its true Lee Jung Suk got plastic Surgery on his nose as you say(which may not be true because i dont have the true facts)… then my dear he is not the only one…check out Lee Min Ho and so many others who also may have gotten plastic surgeries…i have come to accept that way of life as the “Korean way” though i dont support that…well that’s the human way of life these days…Looking Good Is certainly Good business in south Korea!

  4. 4 : Miae Says:

    @Pearlly, I’m sure many people, including you, may not agree with me. I’m a lot older than most people on this website so my perspective may be different from younger generation. By the way, I don’t have a favorite actor/ actress from MBC because i personally don’t feel any of their dramas this years were outstanding. I definitely think Song junk ki and Song hye kyo from KBS deserve some kind of award because they and their drama were great. Regarding my comment about cosmetic surgeries, I’m a Korean so I think I can criticize our changing culture where age and looks are the most important factors. I’m so blessed to live in USA where those features are not as important as person’s characters/personality. I say this because I love Korea and I feel sad the culture is changing so much.
    By the way, there are many actors and actresses n Korea, like Song jung ki and son hye kyo, who have not done anything to their face and still are great actors and actresses.
    I apologize if I offended any fans of Lee Jung Suk. I don’t have anything against him or his acting. I just don’t think he deserves the best actor over actors in MBC drams with 20 percent ratings or higher. I guess that is what happens when picking a best actor by whoever gets the most text vote.

  5. 5 : maknaee Says:

    well-deserved Daesang for Lee Jongsuk! He always choose interesting dramas. Can’t wait for his drama next year~~`

  6. 6 : shiva Says:

    well-deserved Daesang for Lee Jong suk! so far every single drama Ive seen from him he has certainly shown 110% acting skills loved every single of his dramas to me he is just not a pretty face. looking forward to his future dramas! well done

  7. 7 : HKS Says:

  8. 8 : Arriane Says:

    I am super happy and proud as your fan for winning the awards and i believe in your acting skills and YOU DESERVE THE AWARD! God Bless to you and your other supporters and also those who hates you! Happy New Year!

  11. 11 : "Watch_W" Says:

    Congratulations W .. well done, Lee Jong Suk & Han Hyo Joo! 😊

  12. 12 : Yosemite Says:

    Hi Miae,
    Certainly agree with you that now looks take more importance than acting skill which is disheartening.
    A good plot and skill make the show leave impression. Personally I think W is mot as good

  13. 13 : Yosemite Says:

    Hi Miae,
    Certainly agree with you that now looks take more importance than acting skill which is disheartening.
    A good plot and skill make the show leave impression. Personally I think W is n
    ot as good

  14. 14 : rairamegumi Says:

    well miae..among actors who starred in mbc, I think ljs deserved daesang..well maybe if u compare with sjk, it will diff, and sjk didnt star in mbc drama, so u cant compare them..

    sigh, being older doesnt means that u can claim that ur perspective better or sth

    im over 30, and think that ljs acting skill is awesome..fyi, he got grimae awards, u can search what s grimae award meaning for acting skill

  15. 15 : yankee Says:

    Aren’t we not supposed to talk about the drama?
    more important than giving an award to a good actor, I think that we have to admit that W is very AWESOME, the writer is really talented and creative. And congratulation to the wholes actors for successfully impersonating the caracters, more precisely Kim Eui Sung, an incredible actor….

    A french girl who just finished washing W (^^) and was pleased to see that W got 7 awards.

  16. 16 : lclarakl Says:

    Mine @ 1, you took the words right out of my mouth. I don’t know how in the world he received best actor. I have to say that I didn’t have much stock in the drama Marriage Contract, but I have to say that the acting in that drama won me over. W being best drama? Give me a freaking break.

    @Yosemite, I agree also. I couldn’t even finish the drama.

  17. 17 : Bingsu Says:

    MBC 2016 had no one best actor to give except Lee Jong Suk. Yes, W drama is very creative and rare story plot to everyone but I personally don’t like this type of comic dramas without reality and facts. He really doesn’t deserve this award Daesang, Excellent is enough for him. Don’t MBC have Top Ten Awards or Netrizen Awards, since he been voted by his die-hard fans only. Lee Seo Jin is much better acting skills than him in Marriage Contract except he older and stiff postures.
    Overall, MBC this year have no great dramas that I like to watch. Ntv cables is getting famous. Looking at the actress list, all are still newbies, their acting skills in dramas need more years to sharpen. Lee Sung Kyung in Weightliftting Fairy Kim Bok Joo also won the excellent actress make me LOL cause this drama is still ongoing and yet the rates is lowest, keep declining to negative all times. There is still prides for her to win Top Ten Awards then Excellent Awards, over exaggerate.

  18. 18 : tigerb Says:

    let’s put it this way: the people at all big stations (KBS, SBC and MBC) have to put a great show at year end. i think that the people who nominate awardees and those who vote (except for awards voted by fans alone) have to put their two cents not just because of how the actors did in their respective roles but have to weigh more factors in. i have watched many s.k. dramas in the past, and i read the awarding results at year end, and many a time, i get surprised why some awardees, whose roles are in the dramas i watched, get an award! so i say to myself: these people got to be kidding!!!

  19. 19 : Miae Says:

    @rairamegumi 4, i didn’t say my perspective is better because I’m older. I stated it’s just different than when i was at 20 or even at 30. Like I mentioned earlier, I also think lsk is a good actor but I just don’t think he deserved the daesang. I blame MBC for choosing daesang by a text vote. He has the most fans out of all the candidates so the outcome is obvious. Like KBS, text vote should be only used for best couple, best kiss, etc and have the experts decide who gets the other awards. That way, even if we don’t agree with the outcome, we accept it since it wasn’t voted by whoever has the most fans which has nothing to do with acting.

  20. 20 : kurayuzaki666 Says:

    Well I do believe Lee Jong Suk is a talented actor and a very good actor, I still want to acknowledge his acting capabilities in W.

    Yes ratings is a big factor of these station’s annual awards night but a SAT-SUN drama of MBC would be consider a big hit if that drama exceeds 30%-35%. Unfortunately no drama has achieved it, IF IM CORRECT. If not then I apologized.

    Lets just congratulate LJS and anticipate the Baeksang Arts Awards this April or May 2017 if he’s part of the best Actor nominees. If he’s included then a big BLEEEHHH to the haters, but if he’s not then be HAPPPPPPPPYYY! Hurray!!

  21. 21 : Siah Says:

    I am not hate Lee Jong Suk, I like his cute quicky smiles, admired his snow-white face and the kinda sissy look. If I’m still below 18’s, he definitely my idol but now, I’m already 20’s. I prefer go for the idol like Lee Min Ho, who manly and pleasant to every girls eyes. “Sorrrry-ie” this is my opinion.
    And-and one more thing, I don’t like his acting skills, he force his cleft-lip kissing those actress so hard and unrealistic but I’m sure his die-hard fans though he was a passionate kisser. “Peace!”

  22. 22 : Rose Says:

    I thought “W” was a good show and it was very different compared to the unusal K-Dramas. I thought it was entertaining and the tech design was a good addition to the show.

    I thought Lee Si-Un (W) as Park Soo-Bong was so good in his role. He should have got an award. I don’t think he did though.

    I feel that Seo In Guk and Nam Ji-Hyun in Shopping King Louie were a great couple. I loved the show, it had a little bit of everything and a lot of fun story lines. I loved this show. Yoon Sang-Hyun was so good in his role also, he was so funny. I thought the whole cast was good and did a great job.

    Seo Ha-Jun in Flower In Prison – looked surprised when they announced his name that he got an award. He is so good looking and I am happy for him. I have liked him in all his roles

    I was glad that Jung Da-Bin, the young girl in Flower in Prison – got an award. She did a great job in her role.

    And Lee Sang-Woo is soo handsome. Happy for him also that he got an award.

    The K-Pop group – B1A4 were good also — Sanduel is such a great singer. They all were dressed very nice.

    The Korean award shows are similar to the U.S. shows where he same movies get most of the awards even though there are other shows that are good also and never get mentioned.

    Happy New Year everyone.

  23. 23 : Ijcg Says:

    W is not even hit 10% in rating. Im not sayin Marriage Contract is the best drama, but at least it is waaaaaay better than W. I survive watching W until 8 or 9 and then I gave up. Duh. And now drama of the best with daesang for the actor? Like seriously. Ew.

  24. 24 : David Says:

    Wow —- these Korean’s are soooo skinny. They must have strong bones – as some are so thin, their arms look like they would break. Way too thin. Some of the guys you can see their ribs. While most are thin to begin with, then they even loose more weight. It is not that attractive. They look anorexic.

    When they eat in these shows, they look like they have never eaten in their lives the way they shove the food in their mouth. Strange.

  25. 25 : lee Says:

    I think he act his role very well..to those people keep thinking that he’s not good enough you should watch it completely… I know lots of korean drama but the way he portrait he’s character it’s enough already.. Maybe you should try to acknowledge the way he act even though the ratings not good but still he deserves that award… Please be considerate to others own opinion.. We have our own opinion in everything..
