My Thoughts

You don’t know how happy I am “The Ghost Detective” won something. The drama scored bad ratings but it was seriously good and underrated. I am happy Choi Daniel took home an award, he’s seriously underrated.

Also, its good that Yoon Park won something. He doesn’t always choose good projects but he’s extremely talented.

Seo Kang Joon earned his award. I personally couldn’t finish “Are You, Human, Too?” because I thought the love line between a robot made of metal and a human is unnatural and creepy AF, but I watched enough to tell you that Seo Kang Joon gave an outstanding performance and his performance was one of the most memorable.

He’s always talked about because he’s ridiculously good looking but he’s equally a good actor and I feel that fans sometimes don’t appreciate his talent as much as his looks.

I cannot say much about many winners and what I think because I don’t watch daily or dramas more than 20 episodes. A lot of KBS drama winners this year are from daily dramas and dramas with more than 20 episodes long and I don’t watch that!

I will say this, I really like the way KBS divide their awards, in my opinion, I prefer it to SBS awards which also aired today. SBS has excellence and top excellence as if it makes any logical sense.

Dividing awards by episodes count is a good decision.

Congrats to everyone who took home awards tonight!
