Another Baeksang award is upon us again? Time flies!

I am so glad Kang Ji-hwan got an award, he truly deserves one. I'll be waiting for Rough Cut, My Wife Got Married and Speed Scandal to hit S'pore shores.

No award for Worlds Within?

Yoona looks like a Love-able daughter being at the center~ lol

Orchid said...

@Fraulein Sad to say Worlds Within was a flop. No awards or anything. Very forgettable.

The drama wasn't engaging for me. Have you finished watching it?

Jen said...

I like JJM. Glad he won the best actor award. Was he keeping his hair long ? It looks kinda funny. He looks much nicer with short hair.

JJM, you rock !
