With just a few hours left for the 11th annual Seoul International Drama Awards (SDA) to begin, K-drama fans are curiously waiting for the attendees' list. They are especially looking for their favourite power couples, such as Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae, Yoon Hyun Min and Jun So Min, Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo, as well as Shin Min Ah and Kim Woo Bin.

While the organisers of the event, Korean Broadcasters Association and Seoul Drama Organizing Committee, have already revealed the names of a few celebrity participants, they are yet to release the complete list.

Yang Min-a a.k.a Shin Min-a of "Oh My Venus" fame, and "Descendants of the sun" star Song Joong Ki a.k.a Hangul are among the Korean actors who have confirmed their presence at the annual award ceremony. However, it remains to be seen if the two will surprise their fans by attending the event along with their partners, Kim Woo Bin and Song Hye-kyo.

The Seoul International Drama Awards 2016 will be kicked off with red carpet arrivals at 4 p.m. KST on Thursday, Sept. 8, followed by the award ceremony at 5.30 p.m. The event will be live-streamed through the popular Korean broadcasting network, KBS 2TV.
