Acting Idol awards for the first half of 2011

It's been a long time since I went to Allkpop, but hey, I can find there now some information, not just a whirlpool of hysteria! Still, nothing can force me to go to soompi. Unless they start on age ban.

Sports Seoul recently surveyed 100 idol group members, to see who the best ‘idol actor/actress’ and ‘variety idol’ was for the first half of 2011. Through this survey, the public was able to see the idol’s talent and skills shown in other areas rather than just performances on stage.

The Best drama, and the best ‘idol actor’?
The top 3 dramas that stole many idol’s hearts were SBS’sSecret Garden‘, MBC’sGreatest Love‘, and KBS 2TV’sDream High‘. All three dramas had celebrities as their central figures.
‘Secret Garden’s’ Hallyu star, Oscar (Yoon Sang Hyun), and ‘Greatest Love’s’ top star Dok Go Jin (Cha Seung Won) stirred the hearts of the audience, especially those of the idols. Idols were also attracted  and interested in appearing in these dramas because they were able to connect with the characters who were in similar situations. Idols who had voted for ‘Greatest Love’ said, “The story line was original and the protagonist was cool.” Those who had voted for ‘Secret Garden’ said, “The plot wasn’t boring,” and “In addition to both male and female protagonist’s charm, I fell in love with the OST, ‘That Man’“. Singers who rated ‘Dream High’ as their favorite said, “It was easy to connect with those with the same dream,” and “It was a drama that filled my eyes and ears with joy.
Starring in the most talked about MBC drama, ‘Miss Ripley‘, JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun(25) was rated as the ‘best idol actor’ amongst idol stars. Last year in KBS’s 2TV’s drama, ‘Sunkyungwan Scandal‘, Yoo Chun officially took the challenge of acting and started getting critiqued as an actor. He attracted the audience’s attention with his handsome looks and impressive crying scene that was hard to find in rookie actors. Fellow idol stars said that through ‘Miss Ripley’, Yoo Chun had shown a great improvement in his acting skills. He was critiqued as “Working as a part of the cast in both dramas, he has assured his place as an actor,” and “He is composed and shows confidence in his acting,” and “He plays his part very well.
