I am very surprised that Jaejoong was nominated for Male Excellence Award in Korea Drama Awards 2012. Why I am surprised is because of the great actors that were nominated together with Jaejoong.
The nominees are as followings;
Kwak Do-Won of ‘Phantom’
Lee Hee-Joon of ‘You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly’
Youn Je-Moon of ‘Deep Rooted Tree’
Lee Seong-Min of ‘Golden Time’
and, our Kim Jaejoong of ‘Dr. Jin’
I believe those who are big fans of Korean dramas know how great these actors are.
They are veteran actors who have been acting for 10~20 years
and known to be superb actors in the acting industry in Korea.
Our Jaejoong, who officially debuted as an actor only an year ago and has acted only in two dramas,
was nominated together with those great veteran actors.
Although Jaejoong did not receive the award, it is an honor just to be nominated,
First because of the great veteran actors that were nominated together with Jaejoong,
second this awards isn’t something that a power of fandom can make, but decided by the expert judges
and lastly this awards is not a certain TV station’s that only picks among its own dramas,
but targets all dramas of SBS, KBS, MBC and cable stations in Korea in 2012.
Simply, our Jaejoong is one of the five excellent male actors chosen by the expert judges.
So proud to know that our Jaejoong gets credit for his briliant performance as Kyungtak in Dr. Jin last summer!
