Kim Soo-hyun's stirring performance in Producers, the office drama set in the entertainment department of a fictional KBS, enabled him to garner the top prize for the male category. Kim's role was the freshly-minted producer Baek Seung-chan in the 15-part series drama. It ran for 15 weeks and ended in June last year. He also received two other awards: International Netizens' Award and Best Couple Award.

The drama became a huge hit, enough to enable Kim's popularity to reach even Mainland China. Together with co-star Jun Ji-hyun, Kim became popular actor among the young Chinese people.
