Miss A’s Suzy Bae has been appointed as the new MC for the upcoming 52nd Annual Baeksang Awards.
The prestigious awards, often referred to as the “Korean Golden Globes”, honour outstanding achievements in the entertainment industry- including film, television and theatre.
The ceremony will be held on the 3rd of June, and will be the first time in six years that the event will be hosted by a different actress. Kim Ah Joong had previously held the position with Shin Dong Yup, who will be reprising his role with Suzy. This will apparently also be the first time the awards are hosted by only two MCs instead of the usual three.
Some of last year’s top honours went to Choi Minsik for Roaring Currents, Park Yoochun for Haemoo and k-drama Misaeng. This year’s nominations of course include Descendants of the Sun and Song Joong Ki.
