For Your Viewing Pleasure: 51st Baeksang Arts Awards Written by Joyce On June 3, 2015 Welcome back to For Your Viewing Pleasure, where we take the time out of the week to share some of the most recent fashion-forward photos tied to the K-pop landscape.
The 51st Baeksang Arts Awards took place on May 26th in Seoul, and it was aired on JTBC. It was night full of tuxes and gowns, and while we congratulate all the winners of the night, we also want to feature the winners (and losers) in the fashion world.

Ji Sung And Other Actors Who Were Snubbed At The Baeksang Arts Awards
(Photo : ) The 51st Baeksang Arts Awards was a star-studded affair which gathered some of the hottest personalities in Korean television and film. Actor Choi Min Suk, who delivered a stellar performance in the hit movie "The Admiral: Roaring Currents," was the recipient of the Grand Prize. The morose melodrama of a cosmetic ad-man, "Revivre," was recognized as the Best Film. JYJ"s Yoochun beat out Lee Min Ho for Best New Actor in Film, but "Gangnam 1970" could possibly one of the most difficult roles accomplished by the Hallyu star. While the film division provided few surprises, there were several awards in the Television category which left viewers questioning the validity of the Baeksang Arts Awards and its selections.
Ji Sung was nominated in the Best Actor in Television category for his critically acclaimed performance as Cha Do Hyun in the psychological drama, "Kill Me, Heal Me." He was a fan favorite for the award, but he was beaten out by "Misaeng" star Lee Sung Min. "Misaeng" resonated with young office workers, who yearned for a supervisor who was as empathetic as Oh Sang Shik, the character portrayed by Lee. Although, the role portrayed by Ji in "Kill Me, Heal Me" may have been more challenging, the reality of "Misaeng" and its impact on Korean office staff may have influenced the votes towards Lee.
The relatability of "Miseang" may have also factored into the decision to honor ZE:A"sSiwan with the Best New Actor in Television award. Siwan shared the category with other top acting idols including EXO"s D.O., Lee Joon, ZE:A"sPark Hyung Sik and his "Misaeng" co-star, Kim Dae Myung. Lee Joon continues to deliver a strong performance in "Heard It From The Grapevine," the family drama which also received several awards. It should be noted that the Television division does not include Best Supporting Actor and Actress categories. This was most evident in the Best New Actor and Actress categories, where leading actors like Siwan were up against stars who appeared in supporting roles.
During his passionate stage with his sexy dancers, who are wearing bikini-like outfits, he approaches actors, such as Kim Sae Ron and Shin Min Ah. He even stops the music when he reaches Lee Yoo Ri, asking her if she is married, then singing “Your House” in despair. Lee Yoo Ri busts out laughing, embarrassed at the singer’s unexpected performance.
The grand finale is yet to come when he stops the music once more. When catching sight of Lee Min Ho, Suzy’s boyfriend, he greets the actor with a hello and a polite handshake.
Meanwhile, the Baeksang Arts Awards have been held since 1965 to promote the popular culture and arts of Korea. The awards are divided into a TV section and a movie section.
