The 2008 MBC Drama Awards has however been slammed by the Korean public and media for being the Worst Drama Awards ever in history as most of the awards had double winners, including the most prestigious Daesang.Internet forums were flooded immediately with many angry viewers almost in full agreement with one another and criticised MBC’s decision for allocating 2 winners to most awards and with East of Eden winning almost everything. Netizens vented their anger, “Is the MBC Drama Awards a ‘charity show’ or ‘attendance show’, why do they have 2 winners for every award?”, “Why do they even need to invite other TV drama actors? Just the cast of East of Eden’ will do.”, “This is ridiculous, even the Daesang has two winners. They might as well cancel next year’s drama awards as this is totally meaningless.An industry expert explained that, as MBC is pushing for the export of East of Eden to Japan, awarding the Daesang to Song Seung Hun who enjoys high popularity in Japan will put MBC in a more favourable position during negotiations. Others expressed, in order to achieve higher TV ratings and gain more advertising revenue, MBC has to satisfy the cast of East of Eden.

This was the first time since 1985 that the Daesang has been shared by 2 since the drama awards was first held. Kim Myung Min had been widely regarded by many as the Best Actor of the year for his exceptional performance in Beethoven Virus and was deemed to be the best candidate for the Daesang. In contrast, Song Seung Hun’s performance was okay but not exceptional enough. The plot of East of Eden has been at times messy and confusing.

I saw this crap on you tube and Song Seung Hun acting is not that great he doesn't deserve that award. Especially Lee Yeon Hee my god she cant act they spent almost the hole year criticizing her acting then turn around and give her an award. To me Myung Hun's family deserved that award this award was about looks not about talent.

[b]NOW A DAYS WE CANT DEPEND ON AWARDS GIVING BODY.....IT IS MORE POLITICS, INFLUENCE AND POWER.
ITS A WORLDWIDE PHENOMENON........AND ITS BECOMING RAMPANT!!!
ITS SAD TO SEE AND HEAR THIS THINGS..........
GONE ARE THE DAYS .....YEARS BEFORE ....WHERE PEOPLE WINNING THE CATEGORY......REALLY DESERVES IT AND NO SHADOW OF DOUBT ENSUES. AND RESPECT WERE DULLY GIVEN.

ITS BECOMING COMICAL......A FUN FOR SOME...A LAUGHING STUFF!!! ANNOYING FOR OTHERS....DISMAY TO SOME..AND FRUSTRATION FOR THE CROWD.


BUT FOR ME...I DONT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY....COZ THE BODY/INDUSTRY DONT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.WHY SHOULD I????
THEY MAY FOOL OTHERS....BUT THE TRUTH NEVER FADES.THE REAL WINNER ALWAYS STANDS OUT!!!

i totally agree with u myung hun rox dong wook was annoying
i think dong wook was similiar to his real father shin especially when he was little and started that crazy fire and he was so cruel to myung hun all myung hun wanted to do was be friends
he was so mean and tempered he never cared about dong chul and myung hun had a kind heart like his real father the coalminer
