‘When the Camellia Blooms,’ ‘Parasite’ Lead the #BaeksangArtsAwards2020 Winners

Heavy favorites “Crash Landing on You” and “The World of the Married” bagged a trophy or two at the recently-concluded Baeksang Arts Awards 2020 but the biggest winner of the night is the traditional rom-com mystery series “When the Camellia Blooms.” During the awards night on June 5, 2020, the Netflix co-produced drama got the Baeksang Grand Award for TV, and it also won Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor and Best Actor for Kang Haneul, who bested heavy favorites Park Seo-Joon and Hyun Bin.

As expected, Kim Hee-Ae won Best Actress for her performance in the highest-rated cable drama of all time, “The World of the Married.” The highly-praised series also took home the award for Best Director (Mo Wan Il). However, it wasn’t even nominated in the Best Drama category because according to reports, remakes are not qualified for the said award. “The World of the Married” is actually a Korean adaptation of the British drama “Doctor Foster.”

In the film category, the grand winner is of course the Oscar Best Picture film “Parasite.” Its Oscar-winning director Bong Joon-ho, however, lost the Best Director and Best Screenplay award.
