The highly-regarded "Descendants of the Sun" received a nomination for the "Best Couple Award" category in the APAN Star Awards, the most prestigious K-Drama award.

The Song duo will compete head-on against other couples for the  award, as reported by K-Pop Herald. Other nominees are the other couple from "Descendants of the Sun" Jin Goo and Kim Ji-Won, Lee Jong-Suk and Han Hyo-Joo from "W," and Eric and Seo Hyun-Jin from "Oh Hae-young Again." The couple from "Doctors" - Kim Rae-Won and Park Shin-Hye, also received a nomination.

It seems Lee Jong-Suk and Han Hyo-Joo from "W" is the strong contender for the award, as they have excellent chemistry. Viewers are also invited to cast their vote to select the best couple until the end of this month. The winner will be announced on October 2.

For the last two consecutive years, the "Best Couple Award" has no winner. The last winner was in 2013 - Lee Jong-suk and Lee Bo-young in the SBS drama "I Can Hear Your Voice." While in 2012, Seo In-Guk and Jung Eun-Ji surprisingly took home the award in the tvN drama "Reply 1997."

The APAN Star Awards is an annual award ceremony as part of DMC Festival, which also dubbed as Hallyu. The festival will be held at two venues in Sangam Culture Plaza and MBC headquarters, which is located at Sangam-dong, Western Seoul, as reported by Yonhap News Agency.

The festival will take place on Oct. 1 to 11 and many Hallyu stars will perform on the festival. Some higlights are BTS, EXO, EXID, SHINee, Sistar, Red Velvet, Girls' Generation, INFINITE, and Apink.
