Baeksang Arts Awards, also known as Paeksang Arts Awards, honors outstanding achievements in the South Korean entertainment industry. It’s basically the “Oscars of Korea” so you can imagine how big of a deal it is to receive a nomination.
It looks like the Baeksang Arts Awards panel of judges has their work cut out for them this year. Going head to head in the Best Actor for a Television Drama category are Hyun Bin and Park Seo Joon!
