The K-Drama and the Korean entertainment industry all came together at the 2022 Baeksang Art Awards to celebrate everything that has happened over the past few months. Not only did everyone shine on the red carpet (because there were some true looks going on), but each person got to share their true personality throughout.
In particular, one actress that caught the attention of netizens was Kim Tae Ri, who shot to higher fame after playing Na Hee Do in Twenty Five Twenty One.
From the minute Kim Tae Ri stepped onto the red carpet, her visuals absolutely wowed netizens…
But she also seemed to perfectly embody Na Hee Do from the minute she stepped out of her car. Although her visuals were second to none, in a beautiful white two-piece outfit that made her look like an angel, she was also extremely charismatic, whether it was nearly falling as she got out of the car…
Or becoming extremely shy when her posing on the red carpet went from professional to absolutely adorable.
When netizens saw her personality shine on the red carpet, many couldn’t stop seeing the character of Na Hee Do. During the series, Na Hee Do has this infectious energy and personality that makes the people around her smile, and she definitely made those watching the event grin.
If that wasn’t enough, her interactions with Twenty Five Twenty One co-star Choi Hyun Wook, who played Moon Ji Woong in the show, also caught the attention of netizens.
During the series, the duo was truly iconic as the contrasting personalities made them one of the most underrated friendships and definitely chaotic AF.
Luckily Kim Tae Ri and Choi Hyun Wook didn’t disappoint netizens with their chemistry at the Baeksangs. The duo was sat together throughout, and the moments between them seemed like something straight out of Twenty Five Twenty One.
In one scene during the series, Moon Ji Woong seemed to push Na Hee Do away from the car…
Well, it seems like Kim Tae Ri got even during the awards and made netizens LOL. When the actress accepted one of her awards, Choi Hyun Wook got up to congratulate her but was instead met by his co-star, pushing him down in a comedic fashion.
One of the most iconic moments between the duo really showcased that their friendship IRL is just as chaotic as their characters. When the cameras panned on them during the ceremony, Kim Tae Ri had some fun and started urging Choi Hyun Wook to do some aegyo and show hearts to the fans.
Although he seemed reluctant at first, Kim Tae Ri was just too adorable and managed to get her co-star to showcase his cuteness to the world.
When Kim Tae Ri won the “Best Actress Award,” she seemed a lot more surprised as she didn’t know about it and didn’t seem to expect it. Yet, as chaotic as she and Choi Hyun Wook had been, their friendship was truly showcased as the actor took Kim Tae Ri’s mask and congratulated her co-star on the huge win.
Not to mention that one user even compared Kim Tae Ri’s reaction to one Nam Joo Hyuk used in the show…
