MBC Drama Awards 2015 (and JISUNG, Hwang Jungeum and Park Seojoon!)

Heaven know why but I”m more nervous than Jisung as to the outcome of tonight’s drama awards. Having been snubbed for the grand prize at the Baeksangs, I’m praying this’ll be the night he is properly honoured for his talents. I did download the complete ceremony but MBC’s being slow with updating the clips so some videos are missing 🙂 In the meantime I’ll post translations of all the speeches.
The hosts for the night Shin Dongyup and actress Lee Sungkyung (who did an opening song and dance for the ceremony) did start off by telling winners to try and make their speeches as brief as possible due to this being a live broadcast and not wanting to run over time, which I thought was a pretty poor move to make that chances are that you’ll forget someone if you speed through things but there you go!

Shippers dreams come true as Sungjae and Kim Sohyun finally get romantic (on the set of a cf)

AT LAST! I found School 2015 quite disappointing. Kim Sohyun was wasted in both roles, and the scriptwriter kept pushing tepid Han Yi An in our faces when the much more magnetic Gong Taekwang commanded the screen with an effortless mixture of mischief, deep hurt, and teen rebellion that actually makes sense (that father though). He made the perfect foil for Lee Eunbi, always encouraging her to make her decision (see moment when Han Yian bursts into classroom and covers up for Eunbi while Gong Taekwang merely asks her to make what decision she believes is right). Eunbi always seemed to take two steps back wherever Han Yi An was considered (which drove me nuts) and always seemed way more at ease around Sungjae. The chemistry was just so much stronger on that end that I utterly gave up when strong, feisty (even if harsh and foolish) Eunbyul was randomly thrown aside by Han Yian. Though truth be told, I didn’t like Eunbyul all that much either (at least she had a spine though!) I could go on and on about how well that show could have been done (and the colossal waste of Lee Pilmo) but what does that matter when we’ve a pictorial like this?

What with the recent trend of costars reuniting in dramas, with some even doing two dramas in a row together (I’m love at you three, Ji Sung, Hwang Jungeum, and Park Soejoon *squeels*) I’m hoping that Kim Sohyun and Sungjae get a second chance at a much better romance than their first
