Plenty of hype is building around the KBS Drama Awards.
While there is no apparent drama of topic in the KBS department besides "Gunman in Joseon", some are curious if KBS 1TV "Jeong Do-jeon" will be taking home any prizes.
The candidates for Grand Prize are Yoo Dong-geun from "Jeong Do-jeon" and Cho Jae-hyun.
KBS chooses its winners based on a survey of producers writers and reporters.
The one actor and actress who have been voted most in 4 of the most outstanding awards will take home the Grand Prize.
Yoo Dong-geun, Cho Jae-hyun, Lee Joon-gi, Kang Ji-hwan, Kim Sang-kyung and Eric Mun have been previously mentioned as likely candidates.
One of the most likely actors is Yoo Dong-geun. He took on the role of Lee Seong-gye in "Jeong Do-jeon and also starred in the weekend drama "This Is Family".
Cho Jae-hyun who was also in "Jeong Do-jeon" doesn't compete with Yoo Dong-geun when it comes to numbers, but he did take up a big part of the drama this year.
Lee Joon-gi is the one responsible for saving KBS this year with "Gunman in Joseon" which recorded an average of 10.7%.
Kang Ji-hwan, Kim Sang-kyung and Eric Mun have also been nominated for the great prize.
