Attendance equals award... the absolute formula?

2014/01/01 | Permalink | Source

The three broadcasting stations have completed their Drama Awards of the year 2013. However, there's disappointment in the way things have been run, lowering the authority of these awards. 'Sharing' and 'co-awarding' still exists and there's no denying the former-casting of winners.

Including Kim Hye-soo (KBS), Ha Ji-won (MBC) and Lee Bo-young (SBS), a total of 125 celebrities won awards and that's including overlapping awards. The symbolization of the trophy has already been discolored by the average of at least 2 people winning an award. Kim Sang-joong, Jung Bo-suk and Cho Jae-hyun were awarded the Golden Actor Award and Cho Jae-hyun made a speech saying, "I feel like we're in a boy band and I should sing or something".

There was no tension in the show that ran for 4 hours. Those who got on stage to present awards also won awards in other categories and everyone went back home with at least one award. Does attending mean winning?

There was also no standard means of choosing the winners. 6 people were given the MBC Golden Actor Award which sounded like it was made for the middle aged and SBS awarded Jo In-sung with a 'special' award which made it look like he was middle aged.

Due to these problems, many actors and actresses say they don't take the award shows seriously anymore. Anyone can get one, they say. One actress who went home with an award said, "It's great that it's a party but they need to think back on whether or not their disgracing the name of the awards and its authority".
