Park Shin Yang – Seoul International Drama Awards SDA2009

Park Shin Yang is another step closer to being unbanned.

The last sign happened in April / May 2009.  Then the production company of SBS and MBC ended their membership with CODA.   It was a subtle change, but to Park Shin Yang’s supporters, this was an important sign.

This current sign reviewed itself at the Seoul International Drama Awards 2009.  This event is started on July 13, and runs till August 30, 09.  Currently It is open for votes in 3 categories – Best Drama (37 nominees), Best Actor (35 nominees) and Best Actress (35 nominees).  The voting system is hosted on Yahoo!Korea (in Korean, Japanese and English), but is planned by SBS Productions, and are supported by SBS, MBC, KBS, EBS, KOCCA (Korea Creative Content Agency), MCST (Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism Republic of Korea) etc (without CODA) and is organized by the Seoul Drama Awards Organizing Committee and KBA (Korean Broadcasters Association).  Park Shin Yang is a nominee in the Best (Most Popular) Actor category in this award.  If you recalled, SBS had their station’s 2008 Drama Awards on Dec 31, 08.  Since Park Shin Yang was banned by CODA on Dec 5th, 08, he was not nominated for any award at all with his role in the drama “Painter of the Wind (SBS)” (where Moon Geun Young won the Daesang (Grand Prize) Award with her role in the same drama).  In this Seoul International Drama Awards 2009, Park Shin Yang is recognized, once again, by SBS and the other TV broadcasting stations to be competing in the Best Actor category.  Apparently, the winning of the lawsuit against CODA (in May 2009) sent a very clear signal that he has done nothing wrong in suing the production company for not paying up.   Many, including myself, are truly grateful towards the stations’ friendly gestures toward Park Shin Yang.

Park Shin Yang didn’t have the advantages like other Korean nominees with dramas aired in 2008 to be nominated then.  And since his last TV Drama was the Painter of the Wind, it’s unlikely he would have other drama this year to compete in the 2009 awards.  Hence, I am asking you to please show your support to him now – cast Park Shin Yang your vote in the Best Actor award category as your most favourite actor.   There are indeed many strong opponents.  But since he’s been disadvantaged, please consider giving Park your vote in this award.

To make your vote count, you have to vote in all 3 categories (start with Drama, then Actor, then Actress, then confirm you’ve completed the voting).  You can vote once a day per IP.   Fighting.

** How to vote **

0. I have problems myself voting via the English interface.  I finally tried via the Korean interface and I made it.  I am still not sure why I had this problem (that I can’t vote via English – the Vote button doesn’t respond at all).  It may be even better to go to the Japanese interface as at the end it asks you the same number of questions (name, country, email address) as via the English interface.

1. Start to vote from the Drama tab.  Scroll down to find “Painter of the Wind”.  Click the Red Vote Button underneath the photo of the drama.  A window will pop up.  Wait for the ad (about 5 seconds) to finish and the big circles to be filled (status bar to finish), then proceed to the Actor category (click the first button from the left)

2.  scroll down to find “Park Shin Yang”.    Click the Red Vote Button underneath the photo of Park Shin Yang.  A window will pop up.  Wait for the ad (about 5 seconds) to finish and the big circles to be filled (status bar to finish), then proceed to the Actress category (click the first button from the left)

3.  In the Actress category, I suggest to vote for Moon Geun Young – the female lead in the Painter of the Wind – scroll down to find “Moon Geun Young”.    Click the Red Vote Button underneath the photo of Moon Geun Young.  A window will pop up.  Wait for the ad (about 5 seconds) to finish and the big circles to be filled (status bar to finish), then click the first button from the left to proceed to provide some information to complete this vote.

4.  Provide your name, phone number (korean interface only), address (korean interface) (or country (Japanese / English interface): suggest to use Japan regardless of where you are – channel all votes towards Japan gives PSY a bigger chance to be listed in Top 10), email address.  There is some format checking for the phone number field, and I assume the same for the email address field.

If you attempt to vote from the same IP again within 24 hours, you will be reminded. 

** If you use IE and FireFox, you can vote twice a day. **

Please vote for Park Shin Yang.

*** Updates:  the voting event is closed; see results here ***

      Hi teresa,

      Please start at the Drama category:

      Then move on to Actor, and move on to Actress, then provide personal info to complete the voting. If you only vote for PSY in the Actor category without the other two, your vote won’t be counted.

      Hope it works for you and thanks for voting for PSY!
