2022 Baeksang Arts Awards Winners

The Baeksang Arts Awards , also known as the Paeksang Arts Awards, are awards for excellence in film, television, and theater in South Korea. The awards were first introduced in 1965 by Chang Key-young, the founder of the Hankook Ilbo newspaper, whose pseudonym was ‘Baeksang’. It was established for the development of Korean folk culture and art and to improve the morale of artists.

They are considered to be one of the most prestigious entertainment awards in South Korea. It is the only comprehensive award ceremony in the country, because it recognizes excellence in 3 major areas of Korean entertainment: film, television, and theater. In 2021-2022, we had some amazing dramas and performances that surprised us like Lee Jung Jae in the world famous Netflix drama ‘Squid Game‘ or the touching youth-focused drama ‘ Twenty-Five, Twenty-One ‘. Let’s take a look at the winners of the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards. The event was chaired by Shin Dong Yup, Suzy Y Park Bo Gum for the fifth consecutive year. Although Park Bo Gum was unable to host last year’s show because he was serving in the military, this year’s event was the star’s first activity since he was discharged. The Grand Prize of the night for the film went to the director Ryu Seung Wan for ” Escape from Mogadishu ”, which also won Best Picture. In the television category, the Grand Prize went to “Squid Game”, whose manager Hwang Dong-hyuk and the music director Jung Jae Il they also won Best Director and Best Art Direction. In the movie category, the actor Sun Kyung Gu from “king maker” took home the award for Best Actor, while Lee Hyeyoung She was awarded Best Actress for her role in “In Front of Your Face”. The award for Best Drama went to “PD”whose stars Jo Hyun Chul Y Goo Kyo Hwan they won Best Supporting Actor and Best New Actor, respectively.

It seems to me that they wanted to reward popularity, but since they were going to be criticized, they gave some awards for quality. Otherwise I don’t understand why the drama with the best script is not the Best Drama of the Year, nor does it get the Daesang, nor any other award for its actors!! Referee Sold!! And by God!! What was I doing? YoonA competing in the best film actress category with Mrs. Lee Hyeyoung, winner of the award for her work on “In Front of Your Face”? Credits Soompi
