Joo Won and Park Ki Woong are nominated for the Best Couple Award

The nominees for the Best Couple Award at the 2012 KBS Drama Awards, which will be held on December 31 at the KBS Hall, were recently released.

A total of fourteen teams will compete for the award.

Gong Yoo and Lee Min Jung and Baek Sung Hyun and Miss A’s Suzy from Big, Kim Kang Woo and Jo Yeo Jung from Haeundae Lovers, Shin Hyun Jun and Kim Jung Eun from Ooh La La Couple, Uhm Tae Woong and Lee Bo Young from The Equator Man, Joo Won and Ji Se Yeon from Bridal Mask, Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won from Nice Guy, and Cha Tae Hyun and After School’s UEE from Jeon Woo Chi are nominated for the award.

Joo Won and Park Ki Woong from Bridal Mask were also nominated for the award. They’re rivals in the series but actually very close. It’s quite possible for them to receive the award.

In 2010, Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In from Sungkyunkwan Scandal received the award.

Besides them, Kim Nam Joo and Yoo Joon Sang; Kim Sang Ho and Shim Yi Young; and Lee Hee Joon and Jo Yoon Hee from My Husband Got a Family, Lee Sang Yoon and Lee Bo Young from My Daughter is Seoyoung, and Oh Chang Seok and Hwang Seon Hee from TV Novel Dear Love are also nominated.

The winner of the Best Couple Award will be selected based on an online vote (40 percent), expert panels (30 percent), and a reporter vote (40 percent). Because the online vote is of great importance, many people are wondering who will be the winner of the award.

A spokesperson for the awards says, “There are many couples who received a lot of attention from viewers, but we only select one team based on a variety of criteria. We don’t know who’s going to win the award because there’s going to be an online vote that viewers can participate in. It’s hard to predict the winner because Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In from Sungkyunkwan Scandal received the award in 2010.”

Could we have another pair of bromance winners on our hands like after SKKS?! Out of the nominees, I don't think I'd mind it if they won! Then again I'm STILL fangirling over Gaksital even though it's been more than a month.

I loved Nice Guy! And I totally ship Moon Chae Won + Song Joong Ki.

LOL I didn't even notice that. My Joo Won did give 110% though!!
lysblack 21st-Dec-2012 06:13 am (UTC)
joo won and park ki woong should win tbh, becuase i never felt joo won and se yeon as a couple.
purekpopology 21st-Dec-2012 06:19 am (UTC)
Agreed. Their "romantic" scenes were only good because of the setting/cirucmstances, not because they had chemistry.

yep. also their characters had more crying scenes together so...
purekpopology 21st-Dec-2012 06:30 am (UTC)
Joo Won should win all the awards tbh.


If Yoo In Na/Ji Hyun Woo were nominated for Queen In-hyun's Man I might say let them win, but I guess they aren't on the list cause they were a cable show.

The chemistry between them was craaaaazy! Knowing that some of those kisses were real made watching the series even better aaaah! I couldn't believe it when I read he confessed during a press conference @_@. It's like they were living a drama...
shocko_o 21st-Dec-2012 07:35 am (UTC)
It's only a ceremony held by KBS, awarding their own shows. (There's MBC and SBS Drama Awards too.) But yes unfair, I don't know if there's an awards ceremony honoring cable shows at all yet since there used to be fewer of them.
purekpopology 21st-Dec-2012 09:46 pm (UTC)
It's always seemed really weird to me too that the tv networks each have their own award shows. Honestly, it kind of takes the true competition out of the award show.
tsuyoi_hikari 21st-Dec-2012 06:56 am (UTC)
Chae Won's chemistry with Park Shi Hoo in 'The Princess' Man' is even mad crazy than her chemistry with Joongki in Nice Guy. :)
shocko_o 21st-Dec-2012 07:20 am (UTC)
THIS Park Shi Hoo is all sorts of amazing and I've only watched him on CheongDamDong Alice. He's electric onscreen.
markthatcoin 21st-Dec-2012 04:59 pm (UTC)
"You should watch Prosecutor Princess, you'd crey over his perfection there" this. I kept watching solely for the eye candy. Ended up loving it though lol.
tsuyoi_hikari 21st-Dec-2012 07:39 am (UTC)
Yes, Park Shi hoo is simply gorgeous. Plus, he's a really an amazing actor and I'm glad in The Princess' Man, he managed to show his critics how strong he is an actor -- that he is more than just a pretty face.

You should make The Princess' Man a priority lol. That drama is one of the best acted & written dramas from last year and the only drama on par with it this year imo would be Gaksital. Yes, there are many good drama this year but not many even touch the brilliant quality of The Princess' Man. :)
tsuyoi_hikari 21st-Dec-2012 07:42 am (UTC)
That would be me! haha :D

Like I said to you, the movie is brilliant (hate to admit this though -_-;;) but it is just simply the most disturbing movie I have ever seen. Humanity didn't look even more gross than what was portray in the movie. >.>

I remember celebrating with cake and ice cream when Song Joong-ki and Yoo Ah-in won Best Couple. Imo, Joo Won and Park Ki-woong's chemistry isn't as intense as SJK and YAI's but so. much. feels anyway.

I ship Joo Won and Park Ki-woong in Gaksital anyway. :3
b1gay4 21st-Dec-2012 06:57 am (UTC)
none of those pairings in the picture are right bc all those dramas sucked xoxo
purekpopology 21st-Dec-2012 07:07 am (UTC)
You think Gaksital sucked? Plz tell me why cause i think it's impossible tbh.
b1gay4 21st-Dec-2012 07:12 am (UTC)
i dont find any appealing factors about joonwon(as an actor), and i never liked or fully understood the manhwa, so i knew i would never like the drama. + the plot has never made actual sense to me and neither did the first 20 mins of the first episode
purekpopology 21st-Dec-2012 09:40 pm (UTC)
I can understand about the Joowon thing. I didn't really feel the impact of his acting until I watched Gaksital, because (most of) the characters are very complex with a lot of strong emotions to express.

I haven't read the manhwa so I can't say anything about that, but the drama plot is clear to me? A young man living in Korea under the Japanese Empire is transformed by his experiences from a resigned citizen working for the Empire, to not just a freedom fighter, but a national hero. His struggle of how he becomes this new person is really interesting to watch, and I think Joowon did a great job of it.

To each their own though. What were your fav dramas of the year?
b1gay4 21st-Dec-2012 11:50 pm (UTC)
i liked alot of dramas in the beginning, but the majority of them didnt deliver for the following episodes.
those dramas would be Big, Shut Up Flower Boy Band, May Queen, Salamander Guru, To The Beautiful You, Huendae Lovers, and possibly even School 2013.
Most of those shows i started to lose intrest in or get annoyed by the characters within the first 15 episodes, but either way they eventually got pretty boring/slow progessing imo, i still liked them for the most part i guess.
the only one i probably enjoyed throughout the entire series was Reply 1997.
the worst dramas of the year are most definitly Kpop Star the Ultimate Audition and Fashion King. (they were so terrible i stopped within the first episode)
I plan on picking up King Two Hearts and King Of Dramas, but will probably just stick to watching really good movies in the theatre haha
purekpopology 21st-Dec-2012 11:57 pm (UTC)
My favs of the year were Reply 1997, Gaksital, and Queen In-hyun's Man. The worst of the ones I watched this year were Fashion King and To The Beautiful You.

I (sadly) actually finished Fashion King. Yoo Ah In completely failed me in that drama. He's such a good actor, I have no idea wth he was doing there.

I started King Two Hearts, and it wasn't bad... but for some reason I stopped watching it? A lot of people seem to really like it though. I will probably finish eventually just for my Seung Gi.
b1gay4 22nd-Dec-2012 12:08 am (UTC)
i tried to watch queen inhyuns man but it seemed too messy for me to continue! ROOFTOP PRINCE WAS ONE OF THE BEST DRAMAS IVE SEEN ALL YEAR.
purekpopology 22nd-Dec-2012 12:27 am (UTC)
Rooftop Prince was pretty good. It had a lot of moments that got me lol-ing!
tsuyoi_hikari 21st-Dec-2012 07:02 am (UTC)
The awards could go to more than 5 different couples so I wouldn't be surprised if all the main couple of the popular dramas won it tbh.

I would prefer it if Joo Won won the award with Ki Woong compared with Jin Se Yeon since his chemistry with him is way way more stronger than with her. :3 I bet Joo Won will win the 'Best Actor award' also on the way. His performance in Gaksital is simple one of the very best this year. :D
shocko_o 21st-Dec-2012 07:11 am (UTC)
LOL but they should win!!
They don't top the awesomeness that was SJK/YAI but their love/hate relationship stole the show.

And... I remember KBS handed out multiple couple awards during SKKS's year. Are they only selecting one winning pair now?

Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won deserve a couples award too :3

song joongki and moon chaewon should win. then they would be the couple that won the first best couple w/ the same genders (chaewon & moon geunyoung, joongki & yoo ah in) and then win it with each other :)
anconeous 21st-Dec-2012 07:44 am (UTC)
shocko_o 21st-Dec-2012 08:05 am (UTC)
:o i didn't know this! i wonder how the girls qualified as a couple though haha, painter in the wind's another show i need to watch
mentality34 21st-Dec-2012 07:36 pm (UTC)
oh you'll see when you watch it. they qualified as a couple more than song joongki & yoo ah in ahah
shunluv 21st-Dec-2012 12:47 pm (UTC)
and next would love to see MGY and YAI as couple lol :P
jaghatar 21st-Dec-2012 01:21 pm (UTC)
Kim Nam Joo and Yoo Joon Sang from you who rolled in unexpectedly
are easily the best couple from the best kbs show this year

If they don't win i would be surprised and pissed

I can't believe the drama has been overlooked, my favourite of the year by far.
