Song Il Gook wins Best Actor at the 2008 KBS Drama Awards

Song Il Gook (38) walked away with the Best Actor award at the 2008 KBS Drama Awards on 31st December 2008. Song, who obviously did not expect to win the award appeared surprised and in a daze when his name was called.

Song Il Gook was day-dreaming when they announced that he had won


Huh? Who won Best Actor? Me?

Did they just call my name?

I think it’s me…everyone’s clapping

I can’t believe this is happening…

…it’s beginning to sink in now…I won! Oh no…the speech!

Many had speculated that this year, Kang Ji Hwan (Hong Gil Dong) would walk away with the Best Actor award but to everyone’s surprise, Song Il Gook won.

Song Il Gook won the award for his role in the historical drama Kingdom of the Wind (바람의 나라). The drama is currently still airing on KBS TV2 and is aired on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9:55pm.

Kingdom of the Wind is adapted from the manhwa by Kim Jin-I set in a time where the Three Kingdoms of Korea (ancient Korean kingdoms of Goguryeo, Baekje and Silla) existed. Song plays the role of Prince Muhyul who later reigned as King Daemusin, the 3rd ruler of Goguryeo.

I have only seen Song Il Gook in the movie The Art of Seduction. Now this historical drama sounds interesting!

Watch Song Il Gook in a period drama – buy the DVD of Jumong ~ touted as the biggest Korean drama of 2007.
