SBS said goodbye to 2020 with the awarding of the K-drama actors who worked on the network’s projects. One of the winners was Lee Min Ho, for her famous performance in The king: eternal monarch.
The drama was one of the most ambitious bets of the year, with the script by Kim Eun Sook, author of hits like Goblin and Descendants of the sun. The responsibility of bringing this parallel worlds story to life fell to Kim Go Eun and Lee Min Ho, who were returning to TV after two years in the military.
On December 31, at the 2020 SBS Drama Awards, Lee Min Ho won the Top Excellence Award in Fantasy or Romance Miniseries for her performance of King Lee Gon. In his speech, the interpreter regretted the adverse context due to the pandemic.
