‘Crash Landing on You,’ ‘Itaewon Class’ Lead Nominations at the 56th Baeksang Arts Awards

The film nominees are led by Bong Joon-ho’s Oscar-winning Parasite

This year’s nominees of South Korea’s prestigious Baeksang Arts Awards—the country’s equivalent of Hollywood’s Oscars and Emmys, combined—were announced last May 8. 

In the lead with the most nominations are our favorites: Crash Landing on You, Itaewon Class, and Bong Joon-ho’s Oscar-winning Parasite. Almost the entire cast of Parasite and much of the actors of Itaewon Class have been nominated for the acting categories, as well as Kim Hee-ae, Kim Young-min and Han So-hee of The World of the Married.

The 56th Baeksang Arts Awards will be held on June 5 at KINTEX without a live audience to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
