Yoo In Na showed off her perfect figure in a clinging emerald green satin gown.
Park Si Yeon looked glamorous in one of the most eye-catching dresses of the season — a one-shoulder number from Gucci.
It may be a standard tuxedo, but Jung Seok Won looks undeniably sharp in it!
Jay Park doesn’t do tuxedos.
Neither does Jo Odagiri, but Jang Dong Gun does! One of my favorite photos from the evening — look at that profile!
Oh In Hye was a little-known actress before she showed up wearing this extremely revealing orange gown. Despite the fact that yesterday was a big news day, she still managed to top searches throughout Korea. Now, I personally thought this dress was too much, but jbarky tells me it was the best outfit of the evening.
Min Hyo Rin tends to favor billowy silhouettes.
Kim Ji Woo looked gorgeous in this draped teal gown with gold accents.
Another one of my favorite photos from the evening! Kim Sae Ron and her sisters Ye Ron and Ah Ron make an adorable trio! They look like tiny princesses.
Lee Chun Hee looked dapper in this tuxedo with a subtle pattern.
Kang Ye Won
Kang Hye Jung (Tablo’s wife) really stood out among all the evening gowns! I thought she looked really cute.
Wang Ji Hye
Ryu Deok Hwan and Nam Sang Mi
Kim Joo Hyuk and Kim Sun Ah
Park Jin Hee
Lee Yoon Ji may have worn a black gown, but managed to avoid looking basic in the least. It showed off her fantastic figure.
Even in a classic black gown, Kim So Yeon’s beauty shines!
To be honest, I thought Lee Jin’s gown was a little too plain and ill-fitted, but she herself is beautiful.
Kim Dong Wan looks perfect.
Nam Gyu Ri, who favors sweeping, princessy ballgowns for red carpet events, repeated the trend.
Kim Gyu Ri looked very pretty.
Yoon Jin Seo
Kim Ha Neul
Jo Yeo Jung
Hwang Woo Seul Hye
Han Hyo Joo is normally a sharp dresser. I wasn’t too fond of this look, but she always looks gorgeous.
Hong Soo Ah
Goo Hye Sun, who has favored pant ensembles for some time now, changed it up with a short dress.
Fan Bing Bing wowed the crowd in this extravagant seafoam green gown.
Cha Seung Won looks rakish with waved hair and gray suit.
Byun Jung Soo looked pretty in pink.
Park Ye Jin
Uhm Ji Won, the other emcee of the night, looked absolutely stunning in this royal blue gown. Both emcees knocked it out of the park!
Yoo Ah In opted for a clean-cut look.
So Ji Sub and Han Hyo Joo
Lee Jin Joo
Yoo Joon Sang and Kim Bo Kyung
That’s it for now! Who’s your pick for best-dressed? How about worst-dressed?
