Hallyu Jury Unfair To Song Hye-kyo? Actress Loses Award Despite Brilliant Performance In ‘Descendants Of The Sun’

South Korean actress Song Hye-kyo is a blend of beauty and brains. As a veteran in the Hallyu industry for about twenty years, she is a natural in acting, and has swayed her audience in every drama she’s been cast in.

In February, Song Hye-kyo was cast as Dr. Kang Mo-yeon in the South Korean military romance Descendants of the Sun. The actress starred alongside actor Song Joong-ki, who returned to the small screen after a fairly long hiatus, on the completion of mandatory military duty.

The fans were thrilled to see the couple in Descendants of the Sun. The on-screen chemistry was so spectacular that fans started pairing the duo in real life too. Unfortunately, this seems to have done more damage to Song Hye-kyo.

Despite her brilliant performance as a doctor in Descendants of the Sun, somehow Song Joong-ki seems to have stolen the limelight, although it’s no fault of his. Fans have always agreed that both Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo were equally good and doled out the best to their characters. However, things seemed to have taken an ugly turn as the performance of Song Hye-kyo has completely gone unrecognized.

Fans of Song Hye-kyo are dismayed that their favorite actress lost the award despite putting in lot of efforts.

When Song Hye-kyo lost the Seoul Drama Award on September 8, the fans let it slide. However, the APAN award for the best actress was a deal breaker. Many were confident that Song Hye-kyo would win the ‘Best Actress’ award this time, but once again, they were disappointed.

Loyalists of Song Hye-kyo feel that Song Hye-kyo has been deliberately left out of awards. Although the actress took home the ‘Best Couple’ award, fans feel this accolade alongside her co-star Song Joong-ki does not do justice to Song Hye-kyo’s performance.

Fans on social media showed their discontent and said that this is unfair treatment. Fan pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram were flooded with posts voicing out the apparent injustice inflicted upon Song Hye-kyo.


The actress, on the other hand, has maintained her poise and has not made any statement about losing the award.


In fact, she is currently enjoying the status of ‘Goddess Of Asia,’ which is bound to bring more meaningful projects.

According to reports, Song Hye-kyo is overseas. However, she will be returning to South Korea soon to plan her fan meet on November 13. This fan meet will commemorate Song Hye-kyo’s 20 years in the South Korean entertainment industry.


Perhaps Song Hye-kyo’s fan meet will unleash the full potential of the actress as she can show the world her skyrocketing number of fans. According to All KPop, Song Hye-kyo’s Descendants Of The Sun co-star Song Joong-ki might also be a part of the fan meet.

While fans of both the stars are speculating that there is some real-time romance going on between the couple, the duo has made it clear that there is no such possibility.

According to All KPop, the rumors seem to have originated from posts made on Chinese social media networks.

“Hye-Kyo and I are both aware of those rumors, and we are really enjoying them. We even talk about them during company dinners.I think that the viewers think that because of the overwhelming positive response that the drama has gotten,” Song Joong-ki said, according to a report by Inquisitr.

Meanwhile, loyal fans of Song Hye-kyo are waiting for her next big project. On Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, fans have constantly flaunted their support for the beautiful actress.

Song Hye-kyo may have lost the SDA and APAN awards, but she won something even more precious—people’s hearts.
