The blessings just keep on coming for Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano this year. Case in point: After the announcement of their big screen comeback, the duo was revealed to have both earned a nomination at the Seoul International Drama Awards (SDA)!
The prestigious South Korean award-giving body released the list of nominees yesterday, August 1, and the He's Into Her stars were both nominated for the Outstanding Asian Star award. This incredible milestone was announced by Star Cinema, the production company behind the love team's hit show.
Founded in 2006, the SDA is an annual awards ceremony in South Korea that highlights excellence in the television industry. The Asian Star prize recognizes up to five outstanding actors and actresses from different Asian countries (Japan, Taiwan, China, Thailand, and the Philippines). The winners of the award will be chosen by fans worldwide through the voting app Idol Champ from August 1 to 31.
Alden Richards and Dingdong Dantes won the Asian Star Prize at the SDA in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
The 2022 honorees will be awarded at the 17th Seoul International Drama Awards in the South Korean capital. The event will be broadcast live on KBS 2TV this September 22.
Congratulations and good luck, Donny and Belle!
