lee jun ki wins sbs hallyu award


Sigh. As I predicted earlier, the SBS Grand Award went to Han Suk Kyu. Han Suk Kyu is always fantastic and intellectually stimulating so no complaints there but my heart wished SBS would overlook the dismal domestic ratings of Scarlet Heart and give Lee Jun Ki his much earned due for working so hard in his stirring, charismatic turn as Wang So.

BUT Lee Jun Ki was so happy to win the Hallyu Award and I’m glad that at least this award gave justice to the international adoration that he received for his role in Scarlet Heart. He gets to kick off 2017 on a high note so kudos to him.
