kbsdramaawards_cover

Ji Chang Wook has been nominated for various awards in the 2014 KBS Drama Awards for his role in “Healer”, and fans will be able to take part in the voting!

Held annually, this year’s awards ceremony will be aired live on KBS on 31 December 2014 (Wednesday) at 8.30pm KST.

Firstly, his drama “Healer” will be competing in the Short Length Drama category against “Inspiring Generation”, “Golden Cross”, “Joseon Gunman” and “The King’s Face”.

This is somewhat surprising given that “Healer” just started airing not long ago, and it would be rather premature to judge its quality and give away awards based on whatever little has been aired. But I can see why KBS would rather have “Healer” run for the awards this year, as audiences would have largely forgotten about it by the end of next year. I’m not too confident about “Healer” winning in this category though, as there is at least one competitor here that has garnered higher ratings than “Healer”. And you know, ratings do matter in Korea.

Although it is not stated explicitly on KBS’ website, we can safely assume that Ji Chang Wook and the other two leads will be nominated for Best Actor/Best Actress prizes respectively. This will be left to the judges at KBS to decide who wins.

But this doesn’t mean that we fans can sit back and relax! We’ve got work to do.

Ji Chang Wook is listed as one of the contenders for the following categories that will be decided by online voting:

    • We are unsure why the registration process is not working for you. We suggest you contact KBS directly – there should be a link on the registration page where you can email them with any questions. Hope this helps!

  2. I wonder if JCW will go to the red carpet for KBS Awards night. I hope he will…Usually the star actors go to the red carpet if they ‘know’ they will get an award. Everything has been arranged in advance. I heard that Park Min Young will be on the red carpet.
