Park Eun Bin burst into tears when suddenly winning Daesang Grand Prize at Baeksang to Arts Awards 2023
The 59th Baeksang Arts Awards celebrated some of the best in television, film, and theater from the past year!
The annual ceremony took place on April 28 at Paradise City in Incheon and was hosted by Shin Dong Yup, Suzy, and Park Bo Gum.
The Grand Prize in film went to director Park Chan Wook for “Decision to Leave,” with lead star Tang Wei winning Best Actress. As Park Chan Wook was not present to personally receive the award, it was accepted on his behalf by art director Ryu Seong Hee, who worked on “Decision To Leave” and won Best Art Direction this evening for tvN’s “Little Women.” She shared, “As of this year, it’s been 30 years since director Park Chan Wook began [making] movies, and 20 years ago, he received love from all around the world with ‘Old Boy.’ I think he will feel very rewarded to receive an award in this kind of year.”
In the television category, the Grand Prize was given to Park Eun Bin for her role in ENA’s “Extraordinary Attorney Woo.” The actress shared through tears, “I am receiving this on behalf of our team. Thank you.”
Park Eun Bin explained that the love and attention the drama received had exceeded everyone’s expectations. She then added, “I did think that it would be nice to become an adult who received a Grand Prize if I did not give up on my dream to be an actress, so thank you for making that dream come true today. I hope that my attempt to understand Young Woo was a good experience [for others] to learn at least a bit about the autism spectrum, and I hope it was helpful as all the kind words and attention I received.”
"When i was child, i thought that i shouldn't give up my dream as an actress, someday i may receive the daesang one day. and today i achieved my dream."

She continued, “Although I did not have the ambitious goal of playing a role in changing the world, I acted with the hopes that through this drama, we would be able to have kinder hearts than before and recognize the unique characteristics each person has as variety rather than differences. Thank you for taking interest in and carrying out those stepping stones.”
