Outstanding actors will compete fiercely for the trophy. Attention is focusing on who will win the Best Actor Award in the TV category. Some are even saying that it will be the best attraction of this year’s Baeksang Arts Awards. Who will be the one to smile on stage?
The 56th Baeksang Arts Awards will be broadcast live from 4:50 p.m. on June 5 KST.
When the Camellia Blooms – Kang Ha Neul
Kang Ha Neul chose When the Camellia Blooms as his comeback work after being discharged from the military. He played the role of Hwang Yong Sik, a modest young man who showed his love and devotion for Dong Baek, and put a smile on viewers’ faces with his clumsy, but direct confessions. Kang Ha Neul made a splendid comeback, receiving praises for his perfect harmony with the character.
Hot Stove League – Namgung Min
Namgung Min worked on two dramas last year. First, in Doctor Prisoner, he played the “dark hero,” which was not easily found in dramas. His cold charisma, and his flawless acting as he frequents good and evil overwhelmed the viewers. Then in Hot Stove League, he made everyone fall in love with Baek Seung Soo with his “colorless acting.” Even in the moment when he restrained his feelings, he showed off his acting prowess, overpowering the atmosphere.
Itaewon Class – Park Seo Joon
Park Seo Joon successfully led the webtoon-based drama, Itaewon Class. The perfect synchronization he presented with Park Sae Roy from the original work and the solid performances that perfectly captured Park Sae Roy’s principles became the driving force of increasing the immersion level, captivating the viewers.
Hyena – Ju Ji Hoon
Ju Ji Hoon attempted to transform his image by going back and forth between comedy and romance in Hyena. He successfully mixed the sexiness of an elite lawyer with the images of an immature boy who is lost in love, catching the eye. In Netflix’s Kingdom 2, he was well-received for his role as a crown prince who fights against the pandemic and the Jo family, who is seeking out for the throne.
Crash Landing On You – Hyun Bin
He started the “Hyun Bin craze.” Hyun Bin’s unique romance that has been crystallized through My Lovely Sam Soon, Secret Garden, and Memories of the Alhambra, once again flourished with Crash Landing On You. Ri Jung Hyuk, played by Hyun Bin, has a blunt way of speaking and a strong military spirit, but is willing to lay down his life for the love of his life, making every female viewer fall in love with him.
