Winners Of The 58th Baeksang Arts Awards
The 58th Baeksang Arts Awards celebrated the best of this year’s television, film, and theater!
On May 6, the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards opened at the Korea International Exhibition Center (KINTEX) in Ilsan. The event was hosted by Shin Dong Yup, Suzy, and Park Bo Gum for the fifth consecutive year. Although Park Bo Gum was not able to host last year’s show because he was serving in the military, this year’s event was the star’s first activity since being discharged.
The Grand Prize of the night for film went to director Ryu Seung Wan for “Escape from Mogadishu,” which also won Best Film. In the television category, the Grand Prize went to “Squid Game,” whose director Hwang Dong Hyuk and music director Jung Jae Il also won Best Director and Best Art Direction.
“Best Drama” went to “D.P,” whose stars Jo Hyun Chul and Goo Kyo Hwan won Best Supporting Actor and Best New Actor. Winning the top TV Actor Awards were 2PM’s Lee Junho for “The Red Sleeve” and Kim Tae Ri for “Twenty Five, Twenty One.”
