My Reaction:

Really? “Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People” wins this award? among all the other great scripts of 2017, this is the script that took home the award?

My Thoughts

“Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People” won so many awards, I never saw the drama, but this drives me to actually watch it.

Where were the best couple awards? They didn’t hand out any this year, sad, I was waiting for this particular award. I am also happy for Infinite L, he won two awards, he looked so shocked both times, he also looked dashing.

I am glad that the upcoming actor Kim Sun Ho won two awards, he is an amazing actor and deserves the recognition, I am glad he got it. He looked so happy and adorable with his two awards. I am also glad Kim Ji Seok won something, he was backstabbed with (20th Century Boy and Girl), they were mistreated, I am glad they made it up to him somehow despite the drama very low ratings.

Ha Ji Won also deserved her award, her performance in “Hospital Ship” was breathtaking. I wished Kang Min Hyuk won something but I know he’s not on the same level as all the other actors nominated in his category.

“Lookout” was seriously and unjustly snubbed, It had an amazing storyline, the drama should’ve won something… That was my one issue with the awards show.

Congrats to all the winners.
