45th Baeksang winners

45th Baeksang winners

First of all, we realize that we’re the only ones who spell it as PaekSang instead of Baeksang. This is in accordance with the spelling found on the official website. Nowadays, Baeksang is more correct – just like the city of Pusan is now Busan – however, we’ll stick with the official version for now.

  3. Popularity award is good – either you’re it or not.

    Congratulations to Ju JiHun!

    Best actor – Ju JiHun will have that in the future… soon!

    Just so you know, I find this site informative, credible, more or less objective than those popular sites/blogs that’s been in existence for the longest time, so keep it up.

  4. Jujihun didnt say that.The way he said he implied 2 or so people, and the first one was the one he loved and the second one was to his older brother (Lee Un).
    I think Jujihun had a lover who is no longer with him.

  5. noblesse,
    Thanks for the correction! We got the quote from a newspaper source, so we didn’t think it was necessary to check it out. However, I just watched the clip now, and indeed – you’re right. The news article seems to have paraphrased the quote incorrectly.

    To everyone else,
    Sorry about that!
