A total of fourteen teams will compete for the award.
Gong Yoo and Lee Min Jung and Baek Sung Hyun and Miss A’s Suzy from Big, Kim Kang Woo and Jo Yeo Jung from Haeundae Lovers, Shin Hyun Jun and Kim Jung Eun from Ooh La La Couple, Uhm Tae Woong and Lee Bo Young from The Equator Man, Joo Won and Ji Se Yeon from Bridal Mask, Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won from Nice Guy, and Cha Tae Hyun and After School’s UEE from Jeon Woo Chi are nominated for the award.
Joo Won and Park Ki Woong from Bridal Mask were also nominated for the award. They’re rivals in the series but actually very close. It’s quite possible for them to receive the award.
In 2010, Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In from Sungkyunkwan Scandal received the award.
Besides them, Kim Nam Joo and Yoo Joon Sang; Kim Sang Ho and Shim Yi Young; and Lee Hee Joon and Jo Yoon Hee from My Husband Got a Family, Lee Sang Yoon and Lee Bo Young from My Daughter is Seoyoung, and Oh Chang Seok and Hwang Seon Hee from TV Novel Dear Love are also nominated.
The winner of the Best Couple Award will be selected based on an online vote (40 percent), expert panels (30 percent), and a reporter vote (40 percent). Because the online vote is of great importance, many people are wondering who will be the winner of the award.
A spokesperson for the awards says, “There are many couples who received a lot of attention from viewers, but we only select one team based on a variety of criteria. We don’t know who’s going to win the award because there’s going to be an online vote that viewers can participate in. It’s hard to predict the winner because Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In from Sungkyunkwan Scandal received the award in 2010.”
