The Baeksang Arts Awards Practiced Strict Social Distancing and You Have to See the Photos

The Baeksang Arts Awards Practiced Strict Social Distancing and You Have to See the Photos
The actors struggled to take selfies and the internet can't help but notice. LOL!

Since the pandemic began, it seemed as if it would take a long time for us to witness public events like awards shows ever again. But turns out, we didn't have to wait that long.

Yesterday, South Korea managed to hold their version of the Oscars, the Baeksang Arts Awards, with little to no hiccups. In fact, it showed us the possible future of all awards ceremonies until the pandemic ends, displaying some pretty intense social distancing rules that went viral online.

The first social distancing measure, of course, was to announce that there will be no live audience. Only the nominees and broadcast staff were allowed inside the venue!

And here comes the intense part: All the guests had to sit very far from each other. Each seat appeared to be at least three feet apart!


In this clip of Crash Landing on You's Son Ye Jin and Hyun Bin going up to get their award, for example, you can clearly see just how distanced everyone was.

Gong Hyo Jin, the star of When the Camellia Blooms, even took selfies with her castmates (Best Actor winner Kang Ha Neul included) and struggled with their physical distance. LOL!

And that's how to have fun at a safe distance, folks! Congrats to all the winners and for the successful event!
