Thanks to a tip from our reader, i tuned in to the 2008 KBS Drama Awards on KBS World on the 31st December 2008. It’s the only awards we Malaysian’s get to watch on TV (I mean we don’t get to watch the SBS or MBC award shows). But since it is broadcast to us live or only with a slight delay, there were no subtitles. So you’d just have to take a guess at what awards were given out.
19 year-old Yoona (You Are My Destiny) was the big winner for the night as she got two awards for her work in her debut drama. Yoona won the Best New Actress award as well as the Netizen Award. Many were excited when Yoona (of Girls Generation) would be appearing in a daily drama series. I guess she proved to all that she can indeed act and belong to a pop group.
Kang Ji Hwan (Hong Gil Dong) who was touted to win Best Actor settled for the Netizen Award instead. Song Il Gook (Kingdom of the Wind) was awarded Best Actor.

Liz and i laughed and laughed because the actors were definitely not trained dancers and they were not afraid to make a fool of themselves. They are such good sports! Check out the stills below. I bet this was one of your favourite moments in the awards show too!
Why didn’t they get five ladies?

The men were hilarious and of course Yoona danced wonderfully.

Everyone was dressed most exquisitely except Han Ji Hye, who appeared clad in a giant white handkerchief.
