[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Gong Yoo, Park Bo-gum, Park Bo-young, Park Shin-hye, and Namkoong Min nominated at the 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards

Which drama wlll win? Which actor will go home empty-handed? And what are they going to wear on the red carpet? We'll find out on May 3rd when the 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards air.


Nominations for the 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards are out, and the drama categories are as hotly contested as ever. Leading the pack are ratings monster, "Guardian: The Lonely and Great God" (tvN) and SBS hit, "Dr. Romantic" with five nominations each, with "Another Miss Oh" and "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" also making a strong showing.

My prediction is that either "Guardian: The Lonely and Great God" or "Dr. Romantic" will win for Best Drama, because high ratings tend to garner awards, while the Best Actor award will come down to either Gong Yoo, Han Suk-kyu, or Park Bo-gum for "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds", with Gong Yoo as the favorite to win. For best actress, I'll guess it's Seo Hyun-jin, though Park Shin-hye is also a strong possibility. But, really, I'll just be watching to see my favorites in their red carpet outfits.

Best Drama

"W" (MBC); "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" (KBS2); "Dr. Romantic" (SBS); "Guardian: The Lonely and Great God" (tvN); "Dear My Friends" (tvN)

Prediction: "Dr. Romantic" or "Guardian: The Lonely and Great God".

Best Director

Song Hyeon-wook ("Another Miss Oh"); Yoo In-sik ("Dr. Romantic"); Lee Eung-bok ("Guardian: The Lonely and Great God"); Jeong Dae-yoon ("W"); Hong Jong-chan ("Dear My Friends")

Prediction: I have no idea, so I'll go with a prediction from left field and guess Song Hyeon-wook for "Another Miss Oh".

Best Screenplay

Park Hae-yeong ("Another Miss Oh"); Kang Eun-kyeong ("Dr. Romantic"); Kim Eun-sook ("Guardian: The Lonely and Great God"); Song Jae-jeong ("W"); Noh Hee-kyeong ("Dear My Friends")

Prediction: I'm a fan of Noh Hee-kyeong, but I'm pretty sure Kim Eun-sook is going to win. Also, does anyone else find it funny that the writer of "Another Miss Oh" is named Hae-yeong (Or Hae-young)? No? Just me?

Gong Yoo ("Guardian: The Lonely and Great God"); Namkoong Min ("Chief Kim"); Park Bo-gum ("Moonlight Drawn by Clouds"); Cho Jung-seok ("Incarnation of Jealousy"); Han Suk-kyu ("Dr. Romantic")

Kang Han-na ("Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo"); Gong Seung-yeon ("Master - God of Noodles"); Nana ("The Good Wife"); Bang Minah ("Beautiful Gong Shim"); Lee Se-young ("The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop")
