This is an official statement from Eels Club International and Jang Keun Suk Forever blog to announce our withdrawal from Seoul (International) Drama Awards (SDA) with immediate effect and henceforth our boycott of SDA.
It has taken JKS eels worldwide a few days to reach this general consensus, and below are the factors that contributed to our decision.
(1) unreliable online voting mechanism with many technical errors that barred some of our votes
(2) lack of transparency in the vote count
(3) lack of trust in the integrity of the voting system
(4) finally, we wish to comment that the Best Actor Award is only meaningfully awarded based on the judgment by an independent panel of qualified industry professionals, and not based on fans’ voting. That would be the Most Popular Actor award. This is a distinction that awards organisers should be aware of.
