Last week, K-drama and K-movie enthusiasts got to see their favourite stars under the same roof during the 56th Baeksang Arts Awards, which is considered as Korea's equivalent of the Oscars. From Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin of Crash Landing on You to Park Seo-joon and Kim Di-ma of Itaewon Class, fans were blessed to see all the popular celebrities that they adore. When it came to the Best Actor award, Hyun Bin and Seo-joon were the fan favourites to win.

However, it was the talented Kang Ha-neul, who ended up taking home the big win for his fabulous performance as Hwang Yong-sik in When the Camellia Blooms. The 30-year-old actor not only beat Hyun Bin and Seo-joon but also Namkoong Min of Hot Stove League and Ju Ji-hoon of Hyena. In case you were wondering as to how the winner was decided, we have you covered. According to Koreaboo, the Baeksang Arts Awards judges were split in their decision between Kang and Namkoong until the final round. Eventually, Kang edged out the votes and was crowned Best Actor for his believable portrayal as Hwang in When the Camellia Blooms.

Moreover, the judges admired Kang's acting skills as the actor boasted an excellent spectrum of emotions in the K-drama, which is quite rare from the relatively young group of actors in their 30s.

I am a die hard fan of CLOY until I saw Kang Ha Neul in When the Camilla Blooms. He did very well in portraying someone who is socially awkward and could have a touch of Asperger’s syndrome. Great acting skills! Glad to see actors who have great acting skills to be nominated with him- Park Seo Joon and Hyun Bin. Secret Garden and Midnight Runners and Itaewon Class and other films where these actors were in are good to have during the difficult times of this pandemic. Stay safe everyone!

Hyun Bin should have won the best actor, if i am to put all their acting all his contenders may have shown emotion, action and performed to be their character in the drama, KHN based on all his previous characters is almost the same, comic, but still lack being emotional. But if we are to understand HB portrayal to his character, he was a reserved person in a Hermit Kingdom with an emotional attachment to his brother's death, being a military trained person, i see this behavior to most of my military acquaintance whether a male or female, he became more loose in his actions when exposed to an Urbanized living in SK, critics may not have seen these episodes when you try to act all is new and you still want to be cool. His exemplary acting for saving his damsel in distress cant be outdone by any other actor, more so that there is a romantic rumour to his co star, it did not affect any awkwardness. KNH had no follow up stint after WCB. Recall percentage was less than expected.

CLOY is the best drama and has the best stars for me. The actors made me laugh and cry, (how is that as a basis for a good acting?) this drama is addictive, that it made me watch it again right after I finished the last episode. Anyway, I watched it 8 times, there is no boring episode in this series, it’s like watching a whole movie n every episode.

Although I haven't watched all his works, the few I have watched surprise me every time when I see him playing such diverse characters. Ofc, each to their own opinion, but no need to hate on others! (oh and I'm assuming you aren't korean - if you are then apologies - but KHN totally NAILED his dialect, which only added to his realistic portrayal of an awkward but lovable ordinary man :)

Having watched 3 dramas except Hyena, I still can’t understand how KHN get to win the award. I cried and laughed with HB and PSJ in their roles in CLOY and Itaewon Class. But I can’t connect with the main leads of WTCB. The storyline of WTCB is simple and bland too that it lost on me. Perhaps the likes of Korean viewers and judges are different from other international viewers which we may not be able to appreciate yet.

Kang Ha Neul, our sweetheart Sky, is no doubt a hell of a talent. He can slay any character he's asked to do so. Jong Sik is the character he played that put him in the right, deserving place. The best actor award is already long overdue. How many times he played a second-lead role? He just can't be a shadow forever of some brilliant actors when he can shine too as much as they do. Let's all be happy for him and celebrate his success and hope more leading roles for him in the future.

I love PSJ and now I have decided to add KHN on the list of my favorite K drama actors..Last time I saw him was in Scarlet Heart and I dint get a chance to see him in any other drama or movie but WTCB was a chance for me to see his diverse acting..I literally went back to some of the scenes to rewatch like 5times!!!i totally loved his acting..congratulations KHN..This you deserved.

Anonymous 4 months ago

I didn't agree with the choice at all. I watched When the Camellia Blooms and I couldn't connect realistically with the characters at all. The subject matter was great, but the unusual "lightness" in the movie made it unrealistic for me for a movie about a single mom being stalked by a serial killer and trying to find love. As for the male lead's performance, it was to me, nothing spectacular. He was ok, but not memorable. His personality was too silly and it distracted me. I wish he had been a more grounded character. He had a great heart of course, but something about it, I couldn't connect to him and couldn't care less about his feelings for Dongbaek. Just my opinion though. I loved CLOY. Didn't see the other dramas. Not sure if it should have been Hyun Bin, but for me, definitely NOT this guy.

I have been watching k-drama for 20 years. Among the 5 actors, I didn’t watch Hyena, but I watched the rest of the four dramas. I have been noticed Hyun Bin since 2006 in “My Name is Kim Sam Soon”, for the past 15 years I can see the improvement in his acting! 2011 he won the Baeksang Daesang with his role Kim Joo Won in Secret Garden. The character he played in Secret Garden has various expressions for him to show his acting skills. That’s the reason he deserved for it. The character of Ri Jeong Hyuk is hard to present, he has the limit of the emotional fluctuations. When I started the first few episodes of CLOY, I was not attracted by him but when I continued the drama every weekend, I was slowly fall for him unconsciously. His expressions in the character was perfect, I could feel his worries, happiness, sadness... he is the winner for me! Park Seo Joon another great actor, but Park Sae Ro in Itaewon Class was not the best role he played. Kang Ha Neul as Hwang Yong Sik in Camellia, his acting was not bad but not surprising. I was stopped for couple of weeks after the sixth episodes, cause the storyline was too boring but I managed to finished it during the lockdown. Nam Goong Min in Stove league, I don’t even remember what is the name of his character! When looked at him in the drama, I was confused this man is it from Beautiful Gong Shim? Remember? Doctors? There are too much similar in his expressions! If the judges have seriously watch each episode of the dr

The role of PSJ in Itaewon Class required him to go through different level of emotions and he has carried it well. KHN’s role in WTCB was much simpler and his reactions were the same throughout.

Anonymous 4 months ago

Same thoughts. I also watched WTCB just to satisfy my curiosity. The performance of the KHN was very predictable and the range of emotion is repetitive. HB has demonstrated wide range of emotion being stiff, controlled, poker/funny, authoritative, and loving. These emotions were portrayed with balance and these leaped alive beyond the screen that we forgot Hyun Bin but saw Captain Ri. Well-played even to the end. These could be the reasons why CLOY is well-viewed and highly praised by international viewers because it goes beyond SK perspective, it is relatable globally. This marks the acceptability of Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin as international artists.

Anonymous 4 months ago

unfortunately, hb's role in cloy didnt maximize his full acting skill coz he only had to play stoic most of the time. perhaps not his time though. judges only need to choose a winner according to the entries. not from past performances. sure hb is a great actor but so are the other nominees.

I respect your opinion but this was NOT Hyun Bin's best. His NK dialect was meh and his character in and of itself was rather stoic, which is why he wasn't able to portray as vast amounts of emotions as KHN. Try watching some of his older dramas or the Secret Garden

I’ve watched both CLOY and WTCB. And I wasn’t as hype as other people to CLOY. It was really good and Hyun Bin is a great actor as always. But this is the usual “HIM” in dramas. But Kang Ha Neul performance in When the Camellia Blooms is very different from the usual. His performance is very realistic. And the plot and characters in the drama is very relatable. Most asian society can relate to this.

A lot here are just biased to Hyun Bin and Park Seo Joon just because those were the only drama they watched and forget the fact that Namgoong Min was head to head with Kang Ha Neul regarding best actor position. Good thing the public were not the judges of this award show because if that's the case the Best Actor would be the most popular. I get it we are all entitled to our own opinion and have our own biases but I wish people would watch the other dramas before justifying if their choice actor really performs the best. All actors nominated are trully good actors but there's only one Best Actor for the 56th Baeksang Arts awards and I am glad Kang Ha Neul won

All three actors were excellent in each of their roles. However I feel that Kang really made his role shine. He was able to portray such a wide range of emotions that really made me feel both sorry and happy for him at times. I first. saw him in Misaeng and it took a few episodes of watching Camellias to recognize him and it was great seeing him in a role that allowed him more room to show his great talent. Hats off to all three actors however, they were al great.

Tbh, I knew from the onset that CLOY, HB and SYJ would not win the category they were nominated in. Their performances were really not at par with the nominees and CLOY isn't an award winning candidate for Baeksang. And I was proven right. I was banking that Stove league and Nam Goong Min to bag the awards simply because I haven't watched WTCB as yet. Of course, as far as Best Actress goes, the clear winner is Kim Hee Ae. Actually SYJ's acting paled beside KHA. Too cheesy and overacting. Sorry, I am not her fan and the few works I saw her it, never left any lasting impression.

The difference is that the role allowed a person to be multi- faceted in everyday life while the other roles were in specific situations which had certain expectations. I believe the drama allowed the actor to be very creative in portraying his role. Perhaps he was strategic in choosing this role. His character was annoying, naive, yet endearing. Although the drama was not exciting/ eye catching, an actor's ability to make it watchable and invoke strong reaction is key to the drama's success. I watched all the dramas with the best actor nominees, and I feel that he definitely deserves the win.

I've watched a lot of kdramas and i cay say WTCB is quite a unique one no wonder it also won the best screenplay award. The story is realistic showing us the struggles and discrimination single mothers are facing in our conservative society. It also tells us the boundless love of a mother to her child, the importance of camaraderie among neighbors that sadly is dying nowadays as we are all too busy making money we forget to live with people vis a vis. WTCB for me is the BEST kdrama so far. And of course, Kang Ha Neul deserved to win for his killer acting skills, no wonder he beat the top crowd's faves. ;)
