Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. They all won Best Couple. Great. Then… Who will the last Best Couple be? Who do you think it is? Cha Taehyun? They were in a lovely love-triangle. From “THE Producers…” Kim Soohyun and Kong Hyojin. And Cha Taehyun and Kong Hyojin! Come on up. Alright. You two… Soohyun… Kong Hyojin couldn’t be here due to being abroad. Soohyun and Taehyun are the couple! A guy-guy couple. They’re getting the best reaction. We told you how couples were supposed to come up. Lock arms. That’s it. Just come up like that. Yes. Great. So these are the best couples. They’re the best couples that entertain us on KBS dramas. Kong Hyojin was going to come but she couldn’t due to being abroad. So… We meet Cha Taehyun and Kim Soohyun as a guy-guy couple. You two acted as a couple in that drama too. – Yes. / – Do you remember the scene? Soohyun. In the drama… I got drunk. Your drinking habit. – You got drunk… / – That’s right. You clung to Taehyun after you got drunk. Is that correct? In the drama, I got drunk, grabbed Taehyun’s ears and then kissed him. Taehyun. Take the mic. How many bloopers were there then? – Bloopers? / – Yes. Around 6 times. Not so much bloopers… There were several takes. It’s not an important scene but they took a full shot, a two-shot… They shot from the side… They loved it. There were several takes but no mistakes or bloopers. Right. How did it feel? I bet it’s your first kissing scene with a guy. I think so. For me… His lips didn’t feel too bad. Kim Soohyun’s lips aren’t bad. – Just from his lips… / – Yes. Taehyun, you’re known for having nice lips. Let me ask Soohyun now. How did that kissing scene feel? This was actually my line in the drama. Chicken gizzard. They were like chicken gizzards? His lips felt like chicken gizzards? I see. If it’s not too much to ask… – Can you act out… / – It’s a lot to ask. – Then… / – It’s too much to ask for those watching. – If so… / – Yes. – I want to see it. / – No. 200 million people are watching. 200 million want this. Even if you don’t kiss for real, something similar… They’ll show you if you want it. Yes. Oh, come on. It’s because you’re the Best Couple. If Hyojin was here I would’ve asked a different question but it’s just you two, so this is all I can ask. Can you do it? Some acting… Let’s get it over with. Excuse me. The music just started. Make it a bit longer. Ready… Action! – What a great scene. / – Thank you. The best scene from “THE Producers.” So many couples were loved by so many viewers. We have to see their best scenes. We have footage of each couple’s history. Let’s watch Yook Sungjae and Kim Sohyun first. I know there’s no use. But still… I like you. There should be at least one person. One person to call you by your real name. Why do you keep following me and bugging me? Because I’m worried! There’s only one way to make time move fast… – For me. / – How? Being with you. I’ll go first. That was Sungjae and Sohyun. You had chemistry with Nam Joohyuk too, right? Yes, that’s right. But why have you been coupled with Sungjae? And not Joohyuk? What do you think? – Sohyun? / – Well… Many people loved Eunbi and Taegwang. I was mean to him in the drama… – And we didn’t get together. / – Yes. But I’m so happy to win this award. If I can win a different award with Joohyuk, I’d like to through a different drama. I see. Aside from the drama, when a guy approaches you and hits on you… Do you prefer a guy like Sungjae or a guy like Joohyuk? What’s your personal preference? – Personal preference? / – Yes. I like a forward guy like Taegwang. – A guy that’s forward. / – Yes. – I see. / – Then… – I should ask Sungjae this. / – Yes. In the drama, who is closer to your ideal type? Eunbyeol or Eunbi? I had more scenes with Eunbi. But Eunbyeol seems more attractive. – Even though… / – You won with Eunbi. – I like Eunbi more. / – Yes. You like Eunbyeol? I’ll say I like Eunbi more. Want to meet Eunbyeol? Eunbyeol seems angry. – Eunbyeol went home. / – I see. – She hates it here. / – She left. I see. Sungjae and Sohyun were the first Best Couple. If they were a young couple this is the loveliest couple of Monday and Tuesday. Just seeing them makes you want to love. They’re a lovely couple. So Jisub and Shin Mina. You seem like a friend. Oh. A friend with benefits. You can’t. Hug you from behind? Okay! This girl is sleeping again. So Jisub and Shin Mina. Mina, you played the Venus of Daegu, an overweight woman and a hard-working career woman. You showed us many sides of yourself. Jisub, what side of Mina was the loveliest? Great question. What side of her was loveliest? All of her. She’s perfect. Which one did you most prefer? The one that captivated your heart. – All of her. / – Yes. – She’s perfect. / – Really? Then what side did you hate the most? – None yet. / – None? Let me ask you then, Mina. Give her the mic. When was Jisub the loveliest, manliest and most handsome in the drama? After taking a shower. How did he look after a shower? It’s when Jueun was possessed by a dirty demon. He was wearing a bathrobe. – With nothing underneath. / – Yes. I went to the set without knowing that. I remember I didn’t believe my eyes. Then… Why couldn’t you believe your eyes? You must’ve had a long look. I saw something. Taehyun asked if you could reenact that scene. What do you mean? How do you reenact a shower here? He should take his clothes off. Anyway, he looked loveliest then. – In the drama. / – Right. But many people remember the cheek throwing scene. That really shook up our emotions. Mina, can you show us? She throws her cheek. Then Jisub catches it and eats it. Yes. It was a great scene. Can you do it? Yes, they can. Yes. Facing each other would be better. Ready… Action! A beautiful cheek as a gift. – Thank you for that. / – Yes. Jisub and Mina were a funny couple. However, this couple had you in tears. Let’s see on screen. Did you know? You’re just a woman living in my heart. I’ll never let your hand go. Don’t cry. I can’t let you go. I won’t. Yes. That was Han Chaea as Jo Sosa, the most beautiful woman in Joseon. – Jang Hyuk, you play Cheon Bongsam. / – Yes. You’re still shooting the drama. What do you like about Bongsam, Chaea? Give her the mic. – Bongsam… / – Yes. Is attractive because he’s unattainable. He’s charming because he’s unattainable. Jang Hyuk… Take the mic. You’re split between Chaea and Kim Minjung. – I am split. / – Right. If you were Jang Hyuk and not Bongsam… Who would you choose? Do I have to choose? Yes, I’d be really thankful if you do. I’m the host. I’d be thankful if you did. I don’t know. They’re both great. When I was on a talk show with you before, you didn’t give definite answers. You just feel bad, right? They’re really both great. – Really? / – Yes. Their styles are so different. Don’t you feel regret that you two are so sad compared to the other couples? Actually… In the script… The scenes when I work with the actresses are so hard because I have to keep crying. – You have to keep crying. / – Yes. It’s so hard. Chaea, you cry a lot too. Wouldn’t you like some sweet scenes where you get to laugh like other couples? It must be tough because of all the crying. I had to cry as soon as I woke up until I had to go to bed. I talked about this with Jang Hyuk. I’d like to do a bright drama next time… – In a modern setting? / – Yes… I’d like to do a drama like that with him. – All we do is cry. / – Yes. Let’s work together again. – We should. / – Yes. Chaea and Jang Hyuk, what do two think is the best Bongsam and Sosa scene? Jang Hyuk, you first. The scene you think is great. I think it’s the prison scene. The prison scene. Tell us about it. – In prison… / – Please explain. – I say… / – Yes. – It’s when she first feeds me. / – Yes. There were many side dishes but I had no strength to lift my chopsticks. She fed me white rice and the line then was very sad. When you were too weak to lift chopsticks. – I was tortured. / – And she fed you. Chaea, what about you? I wanted to say that scene too… – But since Jang Hyuk already did… / – Yes. I say when I first met Bongsam… I fall in the water and Jang Hyuk saves me. That’s when I saw Jang Hyuk the actor and not Bongsam being so considerate and looking after me. That was the scene I fell for Jang Hyuk the actor. He did something for you. – That’s right. / – He sent something. What was it? Was it a life vest? Not a life vest. I didn’t send it then. The first scene was… – Her falling into water. / – Yes. All the actors shot first and after around 2 months Chaea’s first scene was falling into water. I had to carry her in. – So I was careful. / – For her to be careful… – You sent her something. / – A wet suit. You sent her a wet suit. But Park Eunhye got nothing. She had a similar scene. You must have a blood type A personality. Right. That was the best part. I see. Okay then. I hope good things happen to your roles. So many sad things for you two. Next couple… I made them do some unpleasant things because they’re a guy-guy couple. It should be Kim Soohyun and Kong Hyojin and Cha Taehyun and Kong Hyojin. A love triangle. Since Hyojin isn’t here we made them a guy couple. Let’s see some of their scenes. Does it worry you? Can you not be? Because we have to go edit! Will you take responsibility if there’s a mistake? You didn’t let me eat a thing all day… We’ve just been wandering around… Is this coffee or sugar water? Did you dump all the syrup in? Ra Junmo, you punk! I want to eat chicken gizzards! – Chicken gizzards! / – Chicken gizzards… Hey! Yes. We got a cardboard cut-out of Hyojin while the footage played. Unfortunately, Hyojin chose Soohyun. Taehyun, who do you think made a better couple? You two or these two? Good question… Well… Actually… I think Soohyun and I made the Best Couple. Really? Hyojin likes Taehyun in the drama, right? Yes. Newbie producer Soohyun likes Hyojin. If this was real life… Give him the mic. If this was real life… How would you approach Hyojin as your senior producer? Just like in the drama? How would you approach her? I think doing the same thing in the drama… – Is a good plan. / – Really? Then just act like you did in the drama? Is that very close to how you actually are? Yes, maybe. Really? That’s how you’re like? Your drunk acting was cute. Do you get like that when you drink for real? I don’t really have a drinking habit. How often do you drink? I drink in moderation. I have many things I want to know about you. Yes. – This is my first time meeting you. / – Yes. I can’t help asking you all these things. – I’m sorry. / – Not at all. I want to know more about you. How much can you drink when it comes to beer and soju? Both? I really have to answer this? Sure. For the first time ever. How many bottles of beer? I can drink around 3 shots of soju. 3 shots? With soju glasses. – Yes. / – Okay. For beer… I can drink around 2 bottles. 2 bottles of beer. – The first time this was said. / – Yes. Thank you for the precious information. What happens if you drink more than 3 shots of soju? Do you go to sleep, dance or kiss guys? – I go to sleep. / – So you go to sleep. I see. Alright, thank you to the Best Couple that gave us so much information. Cha Taehyun, Kong Hyojin and Kim Soohyun. Those were the Best Couples, everyone! The 2015 KBS Drama Awards.

Best Actress in a Mini-Series goes to… Shin Mina of “Oh My Venus.” Congratulations. Congratulations. It’s Shin Mina. Go up that way on the runway. Mina played Kang Jueun, who was a popular girl with a hot body as a student but became a fat lawyer in “Oh My Venus.” That was the boldest role of her career and she showed the viewers great acting. She looked so lovely and beautiful even when she was heavier. Mina, please say a few words. We had to shoot under a tight schedule in tough conditions. The director, writer, staff and actors are working very hard. We have 2 episodes left to shoot and we’re working hard. Thank you for working so hard. I have many people to thank too. But I can’t mention them all. First, Director Kim Hyeongseok, Writer Kim Eunji for making that fun character and sexy and silly So Jisub… CEO Kim Okhyeon of Mother Entertainment… And the staff that had to work really hard on set. Junhak, Unyong, Seonhui, Nuri, Hayan… It was toughest for them. I couldn’t have played the character Kang Jueun if it wasn’t for them. I’ll try even harder for the last 2 episodes. Thank you. – Congratulations, Mina! / – Congratulations. The very lovely Shin Mina. Congratulations. Next we have the Best Actor in a Mid-Length Drama. Sohyun, I’m curious about this. Do you know what the basis is to differentiate a mini-series, mid-length and serial drama? Of course. Normally if you have 16 episodes it’s a mini-series. 20 to 24 episodes would be a mid-length drama. Anything more than that is a serial drama. Then what about a drama that ends after 5 episodes? A failure? What do you call it? You don’t have to answer such pointless questions. Alright. It could’ve been tricky for people to differentiate the different dramas genres but as we said before… 20 to 24 episodes is mid-length. Yes. Around 16 episodes is a mini-series. The next awards will be for mid-length dramas. Presenting will be Shin Hyunjoon and Seo Yeji. Come on out. (Best Actor in a Mid-Length Drama) They will be in a drama together in 2016. Hello, I’m Shin Hyunjoon. Hello, I’m Seo Yeji. Next year on January 11… – “Moorim School.” / – Yes. We’re in it together. What kind of school is “Moorim School?” It’s not a school that focuses on getting kids prepared to get into a good university. It’s a youth action melodrama where the main characters learn through life experiences. – Sounds like fun. / – Yes. – Hyunjoon. / – Yes. You’re so white today. – I’m sorry. / – All white. Even your shoes. – I’m sorry. / – What’s the concept? Jo Chun. The look suits you. – Thank you. / – Sure. – Can I present? / – Sure. Yes. Can we talk more about “Moorim School?” – Congratulations, Cha Taehyun. / – Yes. – We’ll talk about it a bit more. / – Go ahead. What’s the president like? Very charismatic. I feel like he’s a good fighter. Thank you. I hope you play the next one, Yejin. – Thank you. / – You look beautiful today. – You look great. / – Thank you. So…. We’ll do our best and present.

First… I… I made my drama debut in the 2002 KBS drama “Loving You.” It was the same director for “All About My Mom.” Director Lee Geonjun casted me then. He casted me again after 13 years. It wasn’t long after I had my first daughter so I had to think hard about the casting call. I thankfully accepted the part and made my return early. I’m so thankful for that now.

I’ll become a hard-working actress. – Congratulations, Eugene. / – Congratulations. She didn’t expect it at all. She seems to feel regret that she didn’t give a clearer speech. Hello, I’m KBS TV Manager Jo Inseok. Hello, I’m Chae Sira. Sira, you seem to be good at cooking in the drama “Unkind Ladies.” Are you really good at cooking? I can only cook a little but my character Hyeonsuk has a talent for cooking. It made me interested in cooking. This isn’t an easy dish but I succeeded in making pickled crabs. So people around me think I’m good at cooking because of my role. I think when an actor portrays a character the acting is important but I think the influence of the writer that creates the character is also important. Of course. You get drawn into the story and you can relate. That’s what an actor’s character in a drama can do. So when you get a good role and you’re acting… You feel a lot of respect for the writer that created the character. This award is for Best Writer. This is an award for the writer that many viewers could relate to and got favorable reviews. Actually, I hope the person I’m thinking wins this. I’m curious to see the winner. Please announce it.

Sira, who was in the drama is congratulating her. Congratulations. Let’s hear a few words. Thank you. I truly thank everyone that worked on “Unkind Ladies.” I also want to thank the viewers for enjoying the drama. I’ll try to write something a bit more entertaining next time. Thank you. Hello.

My husband Kim Taewook released a digital single after 11 years. It’s called “You Live in My Heart.” I just want to say again that the song is about me. Now that the drama is over I’m back to being a regular housewife that works hard to raise her kids. I’m really working hard to raise my kids. I want to thank my daughter and son too. I’ll try to become a hard-working actress and person. Thank you. Congratulations. Sira… We truly congratulate you. It’s time to announce the Grand Prize winner of the 2015 KBS Drama Awards.

Donggeun, you won the Grand Prize last year for “What Happens to My Family” but now you’re here presenting. How do you feel? When I won Grand Prize I didn’t know if I was dreaming. I even thanked God. I didn’t have a single role for a year. My kids keep growing… That’s how I’ve been. But I consider it a big honor to be presenting the Grand Prize. I hope the viewers can see me next year in a good drama. Thank you. I’ll be looking forward to seeing your great acting in a KBS drama next year. Alright. Sir, which drama among the KBS dramas this year was most memorable for you? I’m the CEO but I don’t watch all the dramas. I don’t have the time to so I watch from time to time. “The Jingbirok: A Memoir of Imjin War” comes to mind. Kim Sangjung who plays Ryu Seongryong is criticized when he meets King Seonjo played by Kim Taeu who won an award. Then he cried. In the popular weekend “All About My Mom,” the daughter Eugene cries after seeing her mom’s truthful diary. I was very moved. This was a big hit. “THE Producers.” That’s a bit hard to pronounce. That’s not how producer is pronounced in Korean. I enjoyed that one too. Yes. Next year in 2016… We’ll have a big historical drama, dramas that fascinates people and great dramas that portray the universal worth of humans. We’ll greet the viewers with great dramas. We look forward to the dramas in 2016. Now let’s see who the 2015 KBS Drama Awards Grand Prize winner will be. Sir, please announce it. Yes. The 2015 KBS Grand Prize Award… I’ll open the envelope. Sir, it helps viewer ratings if you hesitate before announcing. – Really? / – You’re sensitive about that, right? It’s no fun if you announce it right away. I’m a former reporter so I’m used to reading things right away. Don’t read it like a news report. – Wait around 5 seconds. / – Who is it? You can open it quickly. – This… / – You’re really… – Struggling with the envelope. / – I’m sorry. Okay… The 2015 KBS Drama Awards. The Grand Prize Award goes to… Go slowly. Slowly… – I’ll take a break. / – Yes. The viewer ratings are going up. – Wait a bit longer? / – Announce the winner! Grand Prize goes to… – Grand Prize… / – Grand Prize… Goes to two people this year. Two people! Ko Dusim of “All About My Mom.” And… There’s one more person. – Who is it? / – Just wait a bit. There’s one more person. Kim Soohyun of “THE Producers.” Yes! Congratulations. Ko Dusim and Kim Soohyun. We have two Grand Prize winners. Dusim played a mother in “All About My Mom” that’s obsessed with her son. She used her 40 years of acting experience to realistically portray a warm mother that’s not so good at expressing herself. She received lots of love for her role. Soohyun played the clumsy newbie producer Baek Seungchan in “THE Producers.” He perfectly played a silly character that is totally different from his image. He captivated the hearts of many female fans starting the Kim Soohyun syndrome once again. Korea’s best drama festival that ends the year 2015. These two are the 2015 KBS Drama Awards Grand Prize winners. Alright. Senior and junior actors. They win the Grand Prize for the 2015 KBS Drama Awards. What a nice sight. Soohyun… He has many fans here from abroad. They’re congratulating him. First… Soohyun, you go first. First… CP Seo Sumin, Writer Park Jieun, Director Pyo Minsu… Cha Taehyun, Kong Hyojin, IU… To all the actors and staff members that worked so hard with me, I thank you all so much. I want to thank the people in my agency, KEYEAST, as well as my loving family. Thank you always. Before… I was really loved for my role as Do Minjun. I played the very different role of Baek Seungchan in “THE Producers.” I worried… I worried about whether I’d fail. Now… I’ll be playing a new character named Jang Taehyeong. Every time… I want to show you good acting but… I’m always scared. I’ll keep trying even if I fail. And I’ll try hard so I don’t fail. Please keep watching me. Thank you. Congratulations. That was Soohyun. Now it’s Ko Dusim. Thank you. I… Won the Grand Prize here in 1989. Back then… I thanked my parents in my speech… “I came to Seoul to pursue my dreams and I did it, mom and dad.” That’s what I said. But my parents have passed away now. I’m just as happy to win this award. And… The actors here should know. Being an actor… I’ve been acting for 43 years now. And it isn’t easy. It isn’t easy no matter what field you’re in. But this is our job. It’s always hard for actors to get to this point. I’m rambling… My parents may not be here but I’m so happy and honored. I know very well that I didn’t get to where I am now by myself. My colleagues and all the people involved… I thank you all so much. Especially… Kapsoo left after winning his award. I really want to thank Kapsoo. I think he played a great supporting husband. If the drama was called “All About My Dad.” Kapsoo could’ve won this award. Kapsoo… In 2016, don’t get paired up with someone a bit older than you as a wife. He always complains. When we’re together… You heard him address me as a senior. Who says that to his wife? Anyway… I’m so thankful he was by my side helping me. In 2016 I hope you can all forget the troubles you had with your families and all the bad things that might have happened… Be healthy. Emotionally and mentally as well. I hope you can have a new and healthy start. I’ll always try to be healthy by your sides. Thank you all for your love. Happy New Year. – Thank you. / – Thank you. Congratulations, Dusim. Alright… Soohyun… Hold on. You both made your speeches that many viewers around the world saw. How about some nice words for 2016? Please say something. I hope only good things for you all. I hope 2016… It’s filled with more fun and great things. Thank you, Soohyun. Thank you for those nice words. – Congratulations. / – Congratulations. Ko Dusim and Kim Soohyun won the 2015 KBS Drama Grand Prize Award. Give them a big hand! At such a prestigious and traditional show, it was precious just to cheer for the winners. It was such an honor to host this amazing show. I really want to thank the viewers that watched until the end despite me… – Being a lacking host. / – Thank you. The 2016 KBS dramas will be even better than the 2015 dramas so please show your support and keep an eye out for them. Great. Sohyun and Bogum, I hope you become huge stars like Kim Soohyun and long-working actors like Ko Dusim. – Thank you. / – Alright. The 2015 KBS Drama Awards. Thank you to all the viewers for joining us. We’ll wrap things up with a New Year’s greeting. Viewers… Happy New Year!
