Who Took Home The Trophy? The Complete List of 56th Baeksang Arts Awards Winners

Kang Ha-neul and Kim Hee-ae get top prize, Kim Da-mi recognized, and more! Here is the complete list of winners from the stellar evening honoring the best in Korean TV and film.

Considered the most prestigious award ceremony in Korea, recognizing the excellent work and performance of Korean films and television shows, the annual Baeksang Arts Awards is always an affair to remember. The 2020 Baeksang Arts Awards was no exception, as we got to see some of the greatest in Korean television, film, and theater honored. This year’s awards marked the 56th edition of the ceremony, and was truly one for the books!

The Grand Prize for film went to international hit Parasite, which made history earlier this year at the Oscars as the first Asian Film to win Best Picture. Director Bong Joon Ho unfortunately had not been able to accept the award himself but a representative shared a message he had prepared in the event he’d win (of which, we had no doubt!)—”It is an honor to be ending at Baeksang the long journey that began in May of last year at Cannes.”


The 56th Baeksang Arts Awards: Highlights And Coverage

For TV, the highly rated mini-series When the Camellia Blooms (KBS2) won big with cast members taking home Best Actor (Kang Ha-neul) and Best Supporting Actor (Oh Jung-se). The show had also won Best Screenplay, with the award going to Lim Sangchun. The Best Actress for TV went to Kim Hee Ae for her reprisal of Dr. Ji Sun-woo in record-breaking hit drama, The World of a Married Couple.
