1. [+2,256, -354] Why is Han Hyo Joo on this list? I never thought she was a great actress, ever... Not like 'Beauty Inside' required stellar acting skills, it was a character anyone could've pulled off. And I'm not just putting her down because of her dongsaeng either..

2. [+1,740, -31] Who are they going to give the awards to since they don't give them to actors who don't attend?

3. [+1,683, -33] This is what happens when you abuse your power, your status just drops like that

4. [+198, -4] Sounds like the actors banded together for this??

5. [+172, -4] This is the actors protesting, right?

6. [+159, -2] It's not like the ceremony had any prestige anyway. Anyone who won an award was accused of winning one just for attending. No one took it seriously ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+153, -1] I'm sure a few of them really might've had something come up that they couldn't attend for, but all of them at once? Sounds like a group effort.

8. [+124, -1] Considering that the ceremony gives out awards for just attending and not because you deserve it for your talent, winning anything here is a laughable achievement... it's better that you don't win anything at all and spare yourself the trouble.

1. [+622, -7] Seems like the actors are boycotting this on purpose. It's true that they'd rather not receive any award than receive any award just for attending. Talk about a party without guests.

2. [+553, -11] At this point, who's even going to watch this ceremony anymore...

3. [+474, -50] Do Kyung Soo????? Who's that

4. [+42, -2] Kim Soo Hyun usually attends all award ceremonies so for him to sit this one out must mean there's something going on

5. [+38, -1] Not even sure why the ceremony bothered with that rule where you won't get an award if you don't attend ㅋㅋㅋ They were basically saying, "You won't get anything if you don't attend. But I'm not going to let you know if you're winning anything or not. Just come and we'll pick awards out of the people who came." Who would like being treated like that ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+4,556, -97] What is going on? Why are all of them not attending?

2. [+3,892, -81] Good riddance to the Grand Bell Awards~~~ ㅋㅋㅋ Not like anyone would want to attend a ceremony where you're forced to attend to even win anything

3. [+3,700, -66] The Blue Dragon Awards actually has more prestige than this ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+2,974, -51] Something smells fishy

5. [+784, -16] The actors are basically boycotting it because they give out awards based on attendance than acting talent. They even have a voting system you have to pay for to make money off of Chinese fans. I think the actors are doing good to band together and boycott it like this so that things change around here.

6. [+773, -20] At this rate, it'll be more embarrassing for anyone who actually attends this ㅋ

7. [+621, -8] This is obviously a boycott

8. [+616, -15] There has to be a reason all of them aren't attending, I guess even this ceremony is losing its prestige
