Accept the award and say a few words… Her juniors are giving her a standing ovation. Congratulations. Hana, take a trophy… We’ll hear from Yeongok first. How embarrassing. In the middle of working on many other things I got the offer for this role. I was afraid of whether or not I could do it. But after I saw the role, I wanted it and got it. But… Hyanggi also won the Best Young Actress Award. The young actors were so realistic and good. Now that we’re talking about the drama… The director… We made this drama in such a short schedule. I worried whether or not he’d get injured or sick working like that. For me… The cameramen… They kept making me paths to walk through the snow. Since it was cold… They worried about me wondering if this old lady could wake up fine the next day after shooting until late at night. Rather than compliment them on getting through that, I’d rather say that I’m here today because of the hard-working staff members that never made a face despite tough conditions. Those that haven’t seen “Snowy Road,” I’d really like you to watch it. Many decades ago, our older sisters went through such a terrible experience. It’ll make you feel stunned and you’ll start to rethink things. Please watch it. And I hope all your wishes that didn’t come true this year, come true next year. I hope only good things for everyone in Korea. – Thank you. / – Yes. Kind words for the New Year too. Lee Hana. Thank you. I owe this honor to being in the short drama “Fake Family.” I want to thank Son Serin for writing the script. Thank you so much. And… I want to thank Director An Junyong for teaching me so many things quietly behind the staffs’ backs every chance he got. And… I think many people… Taught me a lot about emotions this year so I’m very thankful for them. I want to share this honor with my loving parents and my family. Thank you. Thank you, Hana. I bet she feels very emotional. Congratulations to the both of you. Sohyun is back. Alright… As Yeongok says, I hope those that missed out on “Snowy Road” can get a chance to watch it. It’s a very timely work. This was featured on the news often. They said that “Snowy Road” is a very meaningful work that focuses on the Japanese comfort women. It’s a great drama that won the Best TV Drama Award at the Prix Italia last September. There were many great rookie actors in KBS dramas this year. That’s why I heard even coming up with the nominees was intense. – KBS is intense from the start. / – Right. But the people that will be up against each other have also prepared a special performance for us all. – Really? / – Yes. This will probably have the most actors featured in a drama award performance. The congratulatory performance by the rookie actor nominees starts now! (Rookie actors “One Candle”) I want to thank all the viewers that laughed and cried along with KBS dramas during 2015. I hope KBS dramas can console you a bit in 2016 as we sing this song. Great! That was great. Gosh… They were Pretty Rapstars. The actresses are so good at rapping. What a great performance. The guys looked like church boys. – Yes. / – Be careful of church boys like that. They’re so handsome. What are you saying? I’m saying… You’re itching to say something after watching the performance, Bogum. – I’m not. / – You’re good at singing too. – I bet you can rap too. / – No… – Rap too. / – No… He kept saying, “That’s no big deal.” Will you sing or rap for us? – I’ll sing. / – Alright. – I can… / – See? I like this song “One Candle” but I’d like to sing this together. – Sing it alone. / – By myself? Alright. – That’s very good. / – You’re good. Thank you. When you can’t hit the high note your right eye closes. – You have a habit. / – Yes. Alright. You’re a good singer. – I’ll ask you from time to time. / – Okay. – You’re very talented. / – Very nice. Now it’s time for the Best Supporting Actor Awards. – Yes. / – Yes. Who will be presenting? Presenting will be a man that’s hot in the musical world these days. He won the award last year. It’s Sin Seongrok. (Best Supporting Actor) Okay. Hello, I’m Sin Seongrok. To all the viewers and all the actors here, have a happy New Year. I’m back here after winning best supporting actor last year. It feels so new. Normally, I should be presenting with an actress but why am I up here alone? Right… But since this is a special award, I’ll try to present it well. They’re saying this is an era for supporting actors as people love them as much as the lead actors for their great acting.

Kim Taeu, you’re accepting the award on Gyucheol’s behalf. Please say a few words. Gyucheol couldn’t be here due to personal matters so I’m here on his behalf. I truly congratulate him.

The nominees for Best Supporting Actress. “Assembly.” Kim Seohyeong. What? Pity? If you did your job properly this wouldn’t have happened!

How much work did you get done? “Unkind Ladies” and “The Jingbirok: A Memoir of Imjin War.” Kim Hyeeun. Your Highness, if that’s your concern wouldn’t you feel better to be prepared… Even if it’s a burden? How dare you do that to my son? “Unkind Ladies.” Seo Leesook. Live like that forever. That’s how my son will inherit this fortune. “All About My Mom.” Son Yeoeun. If I don’t clean it, it’ll get infected. Endure the pain. – San… / – Hyeju. I have to find San. They said I couldn’t do that… Or else I’d never see San again! The person that drove me yesterday… “House of Bluebird” and “All is Well.” Uhm Hyeongyeong. You’re the biggest fool in the world. You don’t know what’s in front of you. “Cheer Up!” and “Unkind Ladies.” Lee Mido. Stop right there! I never said I’d go. If I was the culprit… “The Stars are Shining” and “Love on a Rooftop.” Jo Eunsuk. Are you insane? It’s a shame I’m the only one seeing this! The 2015 KBS Drama Awards. Best Supporting Actress goes to… Kim Seohyeong of “Assembly” and Uhm Hyeongyeong of “House of Bluebird” and “All is Well.” Congratulations. Uhm Hyeongyeong and Kim Seohyeong. We have two winners. Seohyeong played the congresswoman and spokesperson Hong Chanmi in “Assembly.” She was praised for being charismatic and playing a strong character that you wanted to root for. Hyeongyeong played a charismatic career woman in “House of Bluebird” and in “All is Well” she played a cold-hearted and evil woman. She was praised as being a reliable actress. Congratulations, to the both of you. First… Yes… Seongrok was worried he’d step on someone’s dress. He’s giving them the trophies and flowers. Hyeongyeong will go first. Please say a few words. This is my first award show. Thank you for such a big award. I think I’m getting this award because “House of Bluebird” Director Ji Byeonghyeon and Writer Park Pilju gave me a great character to play. “All is Well” Director Kim Wonyong, Director Kim Huisu, Director Kim Jeongmin, Writer Lee Seonhui and the entire staff… I wish to share this honor with them. GNG CEO Oh Seongmin, Hwang Wontaek, Lee Gyuseong and Sanghyeok. Thank you for looking after me and getting me to where I am now. I want to thank Eunju, Mihyang, Jiyeon, Hyeyeong, Hana, Sinhye and Suhui for always making me look pretty. I’ll try harder to become an actress with more depth. Thank you. Thank you. I’m nervous… I started as a KBS class actor when I was 22 years old. I started my path to pursue my dreams at KBS. But after more than 10 years I couldn’t get on a KBS drama. Then I got to do “Assembly” so I wanted to do my very best. Actually, since my juniors are nominees… I wanted to win this. But the “Assembly” team isn’t here. That’s a shame. My ties with KBS ends up like this… After 20 years… This feels very new. I’m very thankful for images that I get as an actress. “Assembly…” Or whatever work I’m in… There are many genres but I’m becoming more defined as a an actress and as a person. The ratings for “Assembly” weren’t that high… But Writer Jeong Hyeonmin is the best writer when it comes to writing about politics. I think it was about getting to know a person and getting to find that person. When I act, I try my best to make it seem human. I think “Assembly…” Was that kind of drama. The subject of politics could be difficult… Someone could’ve ignored it… But to Writer Jeong Hyeonmin that wrote that difficult work and… I want to thank Director Hwang Inhyeok for letting me portray as much as myself as I could and… I’m sorry. This is going on too long. That’s okay. I just have things I want to say… Right. It’s been a while since you won at KBS… And… I really want to thank Director Choi Yunseok for always getting me the scripts despite always being busy. I really want to thank the staff for working with no air conditioning this summer… To all the staff members that worked hard regardless of how good the drama is or the ratings… To all the writers, directors… You’re all champions. Thank you. Seohyeong… – Congratulations. / – I truly congratulate you. She was known for dramas on other channels. But she started at KBS so I’m sure it’s very meaningful for her… – To win an award here. / – Yes. I felt her emotions in her speech. There were many nominees for supporting actor. This really is the era for supporting actors. – Earlier… / – Yes. – “Hello Monster. / – Yes. – You played a psychopath. / – Yes. But what we see of you these days is looking bright… – And smiling. / – Right. – Like a boy. / – Yes. How did you play such a psycho in that drama? That’s scary. Thank you. For what? – I showed another side of myself. / – Yes. You’re always so good at acting. – No… / – If it’s okay… You’re known for your killer smile. Yes. Can you show us that and then make a psychopath’s face like in “Hello Monster?” Can you show us that kind of acting? I’ll try. Are there lines? He does everything you ask him to. – No lines. / – Okay. – Just with your face. / – Yes. Flash the killer smile and then… – Do the psycho. / – Alright. Then back to the killer smile. – That’s like a real psycho. / – Alright. Ready… Viewers, you’re watching the 2015 KBS Drama Awards. Stay tuned until the end. Thank you. Wow. – That was cute. / – Thank you. How was his acting, Sohyun? It’s really rude to ask him to improv. Yes, it’s a big burden. Right. How was it? As expected from a scene stealer. – Thank you. / – Congratulations. You also steal the hearts of women. – They love you. / – Thank you. Alright. Sohyun. You’ve been in many romantic comedies and played first loves. Have you ever played a character with a twist? No. I played a villain. – You played villain? / – Sure. I started off playing a villain. In what? On “Who Are You: School 2015” she played Ko Eunbi and Ko Eunbyeol… – Two roles at once. / – That’s right. Is there a difference in the acting? Yes. Eunbi is very innocent and kind. Eunbyeol was a tough older sister that would do anything for her younger sister. Can you show us Eunbi and Eunbyeol through your expressions? I know this is a difficult request. – They’re such hot actors. / – With my face? The staff told me to get good footage from you two. You want to go from Eunbi to Eunbyeol or from Eunbyeol to Eunbi? – Are you doing it now? / – Eunbi to Eunbyeol. – Eunbi to Eunbyeol. / – Yes. Then do Eunbi, Eunbyeol and back to Eunbi. Start with Eunbi… Like that. – Yes. / – Ready… Action! What should I say? – Expressions, right? / – You’re Eunbi. – Eunbi always looks bright. / – Okay. – Eunbyeol. / – Eunbyeol. Scary. Gosh… That’s all. I haven’t done it in a while. It’s hard. – Eunbyeol is hard. / – I’m sorry. I was a huge fan of that drama. – Thank you. / – “Who Are You: School 2015.” Can we have “Hello Monster” meet Eunbyeol? The psychopath meeting Eunbyeol? I think that would be great. Both of you smile and suddenly do “Hello Monster” and Eunbyeol… Look at each other. – Yes. / – This is good. – Just like that. / – Yes. Ready… Action. – Hello, Bogum. / – Hello, Sohyun. I can make these requests because you two are great actors. Thank you for doing that. KBS dramas got a lot of love this year. – As well as your dramas. / – Yes. So many dramas were loved.
