Fans are stunned when both Kim Se Jeong and Ahn Hyo Seop of ‘A Business Proposal’ are absent from all nominations at Baeksang 2022!!
On April 11, the 58th Baeksang Awards 2022 officially announced the candidates for each category. However, the fact that ‘A Business Proposal’ does not appear in the nomination for Best Drama and both the lead couple Kim Se Jeong and Ahn Hyo Seop of ‘A Business Proposal’ are absent from all the main nominations is causing the Netizens, especially Knet, expressed anger.
Most netizens feel disappointed that ‘A Business Proposal’ is not nominated when it is already an extremely successful movie of Korean cinema in early 2022. Especially the acting of Kim Se Jeong and Ahn Hyo Seop is also very successful, received a lot of love from the audience, but this big award turned them down.
Some comments from film critics said that the reason why ‘A Business Proposal’ and the main actor couple did not appear at Baeksang is because this award emphasizes realistic and profound film content rather than the actual content of the film. The work is too romanticized. Not to mention, the installation of too many humorous details is also said to be a big minus point for the drama from SBS.
The proof for this argument is that movies like D.P., Squid Game all contain tough content, condemning the dark sides of society. Or like Twenty-Five Twenty-One and The Red Sleeve, although they belong to the melodrama genre, these works still clearly reflect life, not make the film unrealistic.
Not stopping there, experts also cited the case of Crash landing On You. Although it received huge ratings and resonated throughout Asia, the film still suffered an “empty hand” at Baeksang 2020.
