Just wasted an evening watching the 28th Blue Dragon Awards on KBS. Very exciting. A lot of distressing fashion choices there tonight. Granted, I'm no George Clooney, but Kim Tae-hee's outfit was pretty hideous.
This was my first awards show with HD, and as unfortunate as some of those dresses were, my friends were even more shocked by lines and bad makeup on many of the stars. HD really is pretty cruel to some celebrities.
Anyhow, as for the awards themselves, no single film dominated this year. No real terrible decisions, either.

I probably missed a couple of awards, but I cannot think of them right now... and do not care enough to double-check.
Btw, the great actress Choi Eun-hee has just written an autobiography. You can read a summary of it here.
And now, for no particular reason, here is a picture from Jun Ji-hyun's coming film BLOOD: THE LAST VAMPIRE. I think it is a pretty good teaser. Enjoy.
