2016 SBS Drama Awards Recap and Translation

Onto the final two drama ceremonies of the year! The red carpet MCs were Boom and Jung Chaeyon of IOI fame, while the MCs on stage were Lee Hwi Jae, Minah from Girls’ Day, and Jang Geunsuk.

[Note: I will be focusing on translating the interviews and speeches for Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim for the most part, because I adore that show and I’m out of time at the moment. UPDATE: Yoo Yeonsuk and Seo Hyunjin’s table interview has been translated. I’ve also covered Moon Lovers and some Jealousy Incarnate interviews. If there’s someone whose speech you want me to translate, shoot me a comment below! Also I can’t catch the name of every staff/PD/person they thank so I’ll just list them by their titles 🙂 ]
Sadly, there wasn’t much of a focus on red carpet interviews. Some stars merely said a few sentences. Park Sungwoong hoped Jo Jungseok would sin the Daesang. Namgoong Min gave a shout out to his Beautiful Gongshim co-star (and MC of the night) Minah saying that he’ll be looking forward to their MCing. Seohyun and Jun Hyosung danced about on the red carpet. Yoo Seungho gave a smolder on the red carpet and Lee Minho shot finger hearts everywhere.

2016 MBC Drama Awards Recap and Translations

It’s been a hell of a while since I last posted here what with university and life managing to drag me out of blogging (but not out of drama watching!). Today seemed like a good day to get back into things with the 2016 MBC Drama Awards. Everyone usually walks away with an award here, and my ultimate favourite, Ji Sung (who’s making a drama comeback soon!) walked away with quite a few last year. Let’s see what this year had to bring!

[Note: MBC has seperate categories for mini-series and daily dramas. I will be translating the speeches and wins of the more prominent award winners. I’ll be skipping PD and writer names if I can’t catch them at times. I’ll also be skipping those in the daily drama category and focusing purely on mini-series and weekend dramas. Winners are bolded among the nominees. ]

The MCs for the night were Kim Gukjin and UEE, who looked lovely although far too skeletal. The nominees for the Daesang were:

Kim Soyeon for Happy Home
Seo Inguk for Shopping King Louis
UEE for Marriage Contract
Lee Seojin for Marriage Contract
Lee Jongseok for W: Two Worlds
Jin Seyeon for Flower In Prison
Han Hyojoo for W: Two Worlds
