Congratulations to Ji Chang Wook, as he scored a nomination in the category of New Actor Award (Movie) category for the 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards, which will be held on 3 May 2017.
The Baeksang Arts Awards (commonly referred to as the “Korean Golden Globe Awards”) is an awards ceremony held annually by IS Plus Corporation, the publisher of Ilkan Sports, since 1965. These awards are to honour oustanding achievements in the South Korean entertainment industry for films, television, theatre and musical works.
This year, Ji Chang Wook has been nominated in the New Actor Award (Movie) category for his starring role in the film “Fabricated City”. Also nominated in the same category are actors Do Kyung Soo (“My Annoying Brother”), Ryu Jun Yeol (“The King”), Woo Do Hwan (“Master”), and Han Jae Young (“New Trial”).
If you’re scratching your heads wondering why Wook was nominated in a “New Actor” category, remember that this has nothing to do with his acting career as a whole. “Fabricated City” is his first starring movie role and the nomination does not take into account his prior drama works.
This year’s ceremony will be held at the Coex Hall D in Gangnam-gu, Seoul beginning at 5:00pm local time, and will be streamed on online sites such as JTBC, JTBC2, and others. We’ll update this post with their links as soon as more details are available!
