Hey guys! How are you all doing? I’m back to the grind and also back to the land of dramas which balances the real life tasks with lots of feel-goodness!
Yesterday, that is, May 3 was the day of 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards — an event which celebrates and recognises the best of the best in films and television. The big winner in terms of dramas was Goblin as it received the greatest grand prize for its writer Kim Eun Sook and Gong Yoo also took home the award for best actor for TV. The list of winners also gave me a reminder that I have lots of shows to catch up on. Among the ones that I have seen, I’m happy for cuities Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung for winning popularity awards for Moonlight Drawn By Clouds.
