Actor Kang Ha-neul, Pengsoo and producer Kim Tae-ho among KBA winners
Actor Kang Ha-neul, Pengsoo and producer Kim Tae-ho were some of the recipients at the annual award ceremony hosted by the Korean Broadcasters Association (KBA), the group announced on Wednesday.
Kang won the Best Actor award for the hit KBS drama series “When the Camellia Blooms” (2019), EBS star Pengsoo took Best Entertainer for the program “Giant PengTV” and Kim won Best Producer for his popular MBC reality show “Hangout With Yoo.”
The title of the Best Television Drama Series also went to “When the Camellia Blooms,” and screenwriter Im Sang-chun received the Best Screenwriter award.
“SBS drama series ’Hot Stove League’ and ‘Camellia,’ which signaled the recovery of the popularity of drama series on terrestrial broadcasters, were neck and neck in the competition,” the organization said. “By the smallest gap, ‘Camellia’ won. By winning the Best Television Drama Series, Best Actor and Best Screenwriter, the series once again proved that it was the best drama series of 2019.”
The Korea Broadcasting Awards recognizes the nation’s top television programs, entertainers and actors. Due to Covid-19, the ceremony this year will be prerecorded and aired on MBC on Sept. 10. The recipient of the Grand Prize will also be revealed then.
