KBS Announces Daesang Nominees For 2018 Entertainment Awards
The 2018 KBS Entertainment Awards has revealed its list of Daesang (Grand Prize) nominees!
On December 17, a spokesperson for the 2018 KBS Entertainment Awards stated, “Many entertainers showed outstanding performances on KBS’s variety programs this year. We chose five of them as nominees for the Daesang.
“The five Daesang nominees for the 2018 KBS Entertainment Awards are Kim Joon Ho, who is currently appearing on ‘2 Days & 1 Night’ and ‘Gag Concert’; Shin Dong Yup, who is leading ‘Immortal Songs’ and ‘Hello Counselor’; Lee Dong Gook, who is already in his third year of showing his nurturing side as a father on ‘The Return of Superman’; Lee Young Ja, the head of the ‘Hello Counselor’ household; and Yoo Jae Suk, the icon and center of ‘Happy Together.'”
Notably, this year marks only the second time that a woman has been nominated for the Daesang—and should Lee Young Ja win, she will be the first female Daesang winner in KBS history.
With two trophies each, Yoo Jae Suk and Shin Dong Yup currently hold the title for the most KBS Entertainment Award Daesangs. Yoo Jae Suk won the award in both 2005 and 2014, while Shin Dong Yup claimed the prize in 2002 and 2012. Kim Joon Ho has also won the Daesang once before, in 2013.
