Hallyu fans will surely reminisce about their Baeksang moment as South Korean superstars Park Bo Gum, Suzy, and Shin Dong Yup will host the 60th Baeksang Arts Awards.

This will also serve as their reunion as hosts of the highly-coveted award-giving body in South Korea.

In case you didn't know, this year's Baeksang will be Dong Yup's 10th year as a host for the ceremony since the 50th edition, except in 2017.

Likewise, the nation's first love, Suzy, will host the ceremony for her ninth consecutive year since the 52nd Baeksang Arts Awards, while Bo Gum celebrates his sixth year as co-host.

In total, the three MCs have 25 years of hosting experience at the Baeksang Art Awards between them, making the 60th edition more "meaningful."

"The three MCs add up to a total of 25 years of hosting experience [at the Baeksang Arts Awards]. Now, they boast chemistry in which they can communicate just by looking at each other's eyes. This year is even more meaningful as it is a monumental year celebrating [the awards ceremony's] 60th anniversary," the Baeksang Arts Awards organizing committee remarked.

The 60th Baeksang Arts Awards will take on May 7 at 5 p.m. KST (4 p.m. PH Time) at Coex Hall D. The ceremony will air live on JTBC, JTBC2, and JTBC 4.

There has yet to be an announcement on how to stream this year's ceremony outside Korea. However, the previous ceremony can be streamed through Baeksang's official TikTok account and JTBC's social media accounts.

The Baeksang Arts Awards 2024 will give recognition to the Korean actors who have made a mark on the industry in the past year, as well as the films and television shows that have reached new heights in storytelling.

The awards show is one of Korea's three most prestigious award-giving bodies, recognizing excellent broadcast, cable, and streaming TV content, domestic films, and theatrical productions.
