Jeon Do-yeon VS Shim Eun-kyung VS Uhm Ji-won

2014/05/26 | Permalink | Source

Actresses Jeon Do-yeon, Shim Eun-kyung and Uhm Ji-won are nominees for the Baeksang Awards.

The 50th Baeksang Arts Awards will be held on the 27th at 6:30PM at Kyeonghee University.

The list of nominees for Best Actress are Jeon Do-yeon from "Way Back Home", Shim Eun-kyung from "Miss Granny" and Uhm Ji-won from "Hope".

Firstly, Jeon Do-yeon is on the list for her perfect performance. "Way Back Home" is based on a true story of an ordinary Korean housewife named Jang Mi-jeong who was imprisoned in a prison facility on the Island of Martinique. She was wrongfully accused as a drug dealer at the Oakley Airport in France on the 30th of October, 2004. Jeon Do-yeon took on her role as Song Jeong-yeon.

Jeon Do-yeon did an excellent job in creating a character who is mistakenly turns into a drug smuggler overnight, then turns impoverished and desperate as the story goes on.

On the other hand, Shim Eun-kyung drew in 8.6 million audiences with the movie "Miss Granny". She played in the role of Oh Doo-ri, a 70-year-old grandma who one day goes back to the body of her 20-year old self.

Unlike the pretty and petite appearance, the young Oh Doo-ri speaks like a granny with a combination of profanity. Shim Eun-kyung also added a pinch of motherly-love in her character which would've been tough to do at such a young age as herself.

Uhm Ji-won has been recognized for her role in the movie "Hope" already as she won the Best Actress Award at the 33rd Korean Films Critic Association. Directed by Lee Joon-ik, "Hope" is about abused children and their families. Uhm Ji-won took on the role of Mi-hee, the mother of an abused child named So-won (Lee Re).

The 33rd KFCA claimed that it was a tough character for someone her age to take on. However, she successfully managed to balance the woman's ordinary life and the painful truth behind it. Uhm Ji-won indeed treated her daughter carefully but cried out in pain from her heart when she was alone.

There are other actresses who have notably stood out in the past year. Notably Kim Hee-ae from "Thread of Lies", she acts as a strong mother who accepts the fact that her daughter has killed herself.

- Who will be the owner of the trophy at the 50th Baeksang Arts Awards?
