2010 KBS Drama Awards’ winners – How did Blue do?

Two awards ceremonies were held on the night of December 31. First up is the 2010 KBS Drama Awards, which I’d like to start off by commending. KBS Drama Awards has always been my favorite of the three, but this year in particular (perhaps because KBS had such a successful year), it really went out of its way to get it right. I had feared that due to the many candidate options available, KBS may resort back to giving out awards to multiple winners. But contrary to my prediction, award splitting was kept to a minimum. (See and learn, MBC and SBS!)

Of course, I don’t agree that the best candidate was always selected (one in particular irks me – can you guess which one?), but none left me going WTF either. In fact, KBS did much better than I had predicted it would, and for that, I guess an apology is in order.

So, what do you think? Do you agree with the winners chosen?


“I wish dramas would be evaluated by the process in which they’re made, and not merely by their ratings.”
-Moon Geun Young’s acceptance speech, after winning the Top Excellence Award (Blue’s comment: Hmm, her speech would have been a lot more effective if those dramas that she starred in were, you know, actually good. But her heart is in the right place.)

“As an actor, this was an award I’ve always wanted to receive. This award is worth as much as a Daesang to me. I personally hope one-act dramas will never get cancelled.”
-Son Hyun Joo’s acceptance speech, after winning the One-Act Special Award

“But I hear we came in first.”
-Song Joong Ki tells Yoo Ah In, after they won the Best Couple Award

“They’re really mischievous. Who voted?”
-Yoo Ah In, after winning the Best Couple Award with Song Joong Ki

“Please give me a lot of love. On whatever small attention you spare me depends my two children’s future.”
-Sung Dong Il’s acceptance speech, after winning the Supporting Actor Award

“From working on this project [Mary Stayed Out All Night], I learned that I shouldn’t become arrogant.”
-Jang Geun Suk’s acceptance speech, after winning the Netizens’ Award

“I don’t know when I’ll ever receive another award again, so I’ll say [my acceptance speech] a little longer.”
-Eugene, during her Excellence Award acceptance speech, when the crew kept hurrying her to finish up due to shortage of time

    hahaha..i generally liked kbs winners…have to wait for sbs complete list to make my judgment on which is my favorite, mbc is definitely the worst (han hyo joo anyone? and over shin eun kyung?), but i’m satisfied with the daesang (come on it’s go hyun jung!)… but but yoon shi yoon? really? i think he overacted (i watched 19 ep for goodness sakes) but he has his moments so maybe, maybe…

    KBS is also my favorite station out of the three. I loved the quotes that you included at the end, especially of Yoo Ah In and Song Joong Ki. SKKS Bromance for. the. win! Meh on the writer award and for Kim Soo Ro winning Excellence Award. But Kim Gab Soo! Aw, so cute. 2010 really was his year and I’m happy he won a little something for it. I’m also super glad Jang Hyuk got Daesang. He deserved it.

    You did pretty well in your predictions, Blue! Good job! Heehee.

    Just got back from my trip only to see SKKS won so many awards! Sooooo happy, OMG Micky, I’m so happy for you and they are so cute the couple award, specially AI and JK. I’d say Jalgeum-4 stole the night away! For Mary Stayed Out All Night, well my dear B&B didn’t we just talk about it? Now I gotta check the last ep for sure. Oh, KBS you did good and blue next time predicts the lotto and I will follow. Gahhhh! so many awards for SKKS, I need to get to Soompi now all my dear scandalers must be opening the champagne and party like crazy. Thanks Blue for sharing. And hey Mr. Chuno, buttons and bow tie, seriously?
