‘Crash Landing on You,’ ‘When the Camellia Blooms’ Lead Nominations for the 56th Baeksang Arts Awards

Romantic comedies “Crash Landing on You” and “When the Camellia Blooms” lead the nominees in the TV category of the 56th Baeksang Arts Awards. Oscar-winner “Parasite” tops the nominees in the film category.

It’s interesting to note that the current highest-rated K-drama “The World of the Married” was snubbed in the Best Drama category because it’s an adaptation of a British series. The JTBC series, however, snatched a nomination in the Best Actress category courtesy of Kim Hee Ae (our favorite to win). It also scored a Best New Actress nomination courtesy of the beautiful Han So Hee.

In the Best Actor category, it’s a toss between fan favorites Hyun Bin (“Crash Landing on You”) and Park Seo-Joon (“Itaewon Class.”) However, Kang Ha Neul of “When the Camellia Blooms” could make an upset.
