The Expanse Season 1

“Either you commit to diversity, and it’s just a fact of how you do business, how you live, or you’re not diverse,” Franck says. “You can’t say ‘I know, we’ll be diverse, we’ll gift one black part.’ That sort of tokenism is not diversity. To be truly diverse, you have to start at the top. Our production company, one of the presidents is a black man. The president of our TV division is a woman. Our writer’s room is pretty close to fifty-fifty, men and women. It’s not like there were checkboxes, the attitude was just, ‘Let’s hire an interesting array of voices.’” That attitude extends to the script and the screen. “We’re not trying to champion anyone in particular,” Abraham says. “We’re telling a story, and in the course of the story, there are people who aren’t all white guys. What’s important is what the Zuni woman is doing, not that she’s a Zuni.”

170503 ♡ 53rd baeksang arts awards
bogum not hearing his name be called accepting his ‘popularity award’ for the male television division

(from 0:23)
Hello, I am Park Bogum.
Uh first of all… /fans scream/ thank you.
It is by God’s grace that I have become who I am. And I give the honor to God who is always beside me and leading me down the right path.
I received a lot of love last year through the production 'Moonlight Drawn by Clouds’. I’m aware that it wasn’t just Korean fans, but fans overseas also participated in the voting for this award. A sincere thank you to fans who knowingly and unknowingly voted, supported and gave me strength.
I think I was able to receive this thankful award after meeting the production that was 'Moonlight Drawn by Clouds’ as well as the staff who became my luck, the extras (who appeared in mdbc), sunabenims, and fellow actors that are here tonight. It was an honor to work with you.
I was thankful for the opportunity alone to attend Baeksang Arts Awards again this year following on from last year, and I think of just being nominated as me taking one step closer to my dream.
Even though popularity isn’t something that will last forever, I will work hard in order to become an actor with a good influence, who can move and touch the hearts of people, and who will always be remembered in everyone’s hearts for a long time.
Thank you so much to my family, my company and everyone who are always praying for me and loving me.
God bless you.
