This is the K-drama star's third Daesang (grand prize) in her acting career for her portrayal of Moon Dong-eun on the show. She won her first Daesang in 2013 for That Winter, The Wind Blows at the APAN Star Awards and again in 2016 for Descendants of the Sun at the KBS Drama Awards.
She has received six nods for the highly coveted award so far.
