@Mindy, I can ask you the same question. Why do you think that IONTBO will win the Baeksang? It is a Korean award after all and the Koreans are not super fond of it.
My arguments why it will be tough for IONTBO to win:
– Stranger 2, which is the successor to a Daesang winner. Might be a total fail, but if it is similar in quality as its previous drama, then it is already tough to beat it.
– Other dramas such as SF8 (seems like an ambitious project, not sure whether it is good… did not watch it yet), Here (Lee Byun Hun, Han Ji Min, Shin Mina and more star power), Silent Witness (Gong Yoo, Bae Doona), Mount Jiri (Jun Ji Hyun, Ju Ji Hoon), Suriname (Hwang Jung Min, Ha Jung Woo). There are some projects on Netflix with Yoo Ah In and Lee Je Hoon. Sisyphus with Jo Seung Woo… Squid Games (Lee Jung Jae, Park Hae Soo)… Hospital Playlist 2 and many more.
You can disagree, but these are movie actors and in acting are definitely a notch above Seo Ye Ji and even Kim Soo Hyun. In star power, some come close too Kim Soo Hyun and some are more popular in Korea.
Timing wise this drama is also not ideal. By the time the nominations come out, this show will be forgotten and almost one year old.I think the sweet spot is to finish your drama just before the nominations are coming out.
Regarding Kim Go Eun, she is shit. But she was lucky with Goblin and Cheese in the Trap (Park Hae Jin is big in China) and lifted on the success of the drama and the male leads. Something Seo Ye Ji currently cannot do as the drama is not watchable in China or popular in the big countries such as Japan.
