[News] Lee Young-ae, Lee Min-ho to hit drama awards red carpet
Actress Lee Young-ae and actor Lee Min-ho, two of Asia’s most popular stars from South Korea, will walk the red carpet of the international drama awards in Seoul later this week, organizers said Monday.
The red carpet event for the Seoul International Drama Awards 2015 is slated for Thursday evening at the DMC Square in western Seoul, the organizing committee said.
The two Lees are part of the event’s star-studded roster, which also includes actor Lee Joon-gi; actress Claudia Kim from “Avengers: Age of Ultron”; actor Yeo Jin-goo; and Seolhyun, the hottest girl group celebrity of the moment.
From outside South Korea, American actor Milo Ventimiglia from “Chosen S3”; Japanese actors Joe Odagiri and Ryunosuke Kamiki; Chinese actor Wallace Chung; and Taiwan’s Chen Bolin and Ariel Lin will be there.
Some highlights among the submissions are “Misaeng – Incomplete Life,” a local series about the quirks and idiosyncrasies of South Korean office politics; SBS’ “Pinocchio,” a comic study on South Korea’s journalism ethics; MBC’s medical drama “Kill Me, Heal Me”; season six of the U.S. hit show “Modern Family”; and Taiwanese romantic drama “The Way We Were.”
The main event starts after the red carpet, with actress Kim Jung-eun and actor Lee Dong-wook as hosts.
South Korean soprano extraordinaire Jo Su-mi, girl group Sistar and boy band B1A4 will stage performances to spice up the occasion.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the awards, which is co-organized by the Korean Broadcasters Association.
