(Live from KBS Hall) It’s Korea’s best drama festival. This is the second half of the 2016 KBS Drama Awards. (“Moonlight Drawn by Clouds” by Gummy) (Sound track of “Love in the Moonlight”) You’ve worked hard so far. You, too. Make sure you come see me in your next life, too. You promised. (“You’re My Everything” by Gummy) (Sound track of “Descendants of the Sun”) It was a stage by the queen of sound tracks, Gummy. Thank you, Gummy. The power of music is amazing indeed. The sentiments from the past have been revived. – That’s right. / – Listening to her music live moved me even more. I’m honored. I know that you play the piano really well. It’d be nice if you could perform for everyone one day. If I get a chance one day, I’d love to perform. All right. The second half of the 2016 KBS Drama Awards has now begun. The 2016 KBS Drama Awards is being broadcast through the Asian OTT platform, Viu, to many Asian countries including Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia. It is now 11:29 p.m., 41 seconds. There are only about 30 minutes left of the year 2016. In a brief moment, you will get a chance to count down for the New Year with great actors, so stay tuned on KBS Drama Awards until the end. I’m sure many of you must have waited for this part. It’s Best Couple Award. So many people have been waiting for that award. We’ve waited for this award more than Grand Award. In order to present the award with its meaning, a couple who first met on a KBS drama called “Yellow Handkerchief”, then got married will come on stage. They’re the real best couple. Please welcome In Gyojin and So Yihyun. They’re the real best couple. (Best Couple Award) In Gyojin and So Yihyun. Hello, I’m In Gyojin. Hello, I’m So Yihyun. (In Gyojin, So Yihyun) I’m honored to present Best Couple Award on the 30th KBS Drama Awards. Besides, Yihyun also needs to win Best Couple Award with Oh Minsuk who’s sitting over there. By any chance, are you presenting the award just because of me? I think so. I’d also like to win Best Couple Award, but Minsuk and I were a couple who struggled a lot in the drama. It’s okay. I’ve got my pretty Haeun as well as you, Gyojin. Thank you for looking after our daughter. In fact, it’s me who needs to thank you. You delivered a beautiful daughter who is as pretty just like you. It’s so obvious that you two have schemed this. – Oh, can you tell? I’ll stop, then. / – All right. Before we announce Best Couple Award of 2016 KBS Drama Awards, I’d like to ask the winners to strike a pose as a couple like us. For example, – strike a pose like us. / – Like this. We’d really appreciate it if you’d come up on stage with a pose. I’ll announce the winner. The first couple infected us with their deep romance last fall. Lee Sangyoon and Kim Haneul from “On the Way to the Airport”. Lee Sangyoon and Kim Haneul melted everyone’s hearts with their emotional romance. (Lee Sangyoon and Kim Haneul) Strike a pose as a couple. Go on. All right. The second best couple could even be considered as a real father and daughter. Jiho! Oh Jiho and Heo Jeoungeun from “My Fair Lady 2016”. Oh Jiho and Heo Jeoungeun. Congratulations. Park Shinyang seems a bit bitter looking at them. This couple brings everyone to tears these days. Jeoungeun, you’re on stage often tonight. The third couple made not only Koreans but also everyone in the world have a heartache. Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo from “Descendants of the Sun”. Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo. It’s their second award together after Asia’s Best Couple Award. Congratulations. (Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo) – How beautiful. / – All right. The fourth couple may be a bit crude, but they’re the best when it comes to being innocent. I guess they really wanted to win this award. Cha Inpyo and La Miran from “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop”. This couple could even intimidate Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo. Cha Inpyo and La Miran. La Miran seems even happier than winning an award alone. She has totally been aiming for this award. Congratulations. They really seem like a married couple. The fifth best couple are from “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop”. It’s Hyunwoo and Lee Seyoung. Ah-Choo couple. (Hyunwoo and Lee Seyoung) Hyunwoo and Lee Seyoung are showing their fresh and pretty love. They look great together. Hyunwoo is led by Seyoung even though he’s the guy. Congratulations. Congratulations. We also have the sixth couple to announce. They made us happy for the second half of 2016. Park Bogum and Kim Youjung from “Love in the Moonlight”. – Park Bogum / – Congratulations. and Kim Youjung. Park Bogum will receive the award alone. I’ll announce the last best couple. They’ve shown us a cool romance of soldiers. Jin Goo and Kim Jiwon from “Descendants of the Sun”. Kim Jiwon. Jin Goo couldn’t make it here because he’s ill. (Jin Goo and Kim Jiwon) She’s here alone tonight. Please give a big hand for Gyojin and Yihyun as well. Thank you. They must be awarded now. We’ll award a trophy and a bouquet to each winner. Each time a couple is awarded, please give a big round of applause. The Cha La couple, Cha Inpyo and La Miran. This couple represents Asia. Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo. Great. This couple stands out among others. Oh Jiho and Heo Jeoungeun. Jeoungeun is winning a lot of awards tonight. Then here are Lee Sangyoon and Kim Haneul from “On the Way to the Airport”. They showed their ardent love. Great. Now, Kim Jiwon. Okay. Park Bogum. Congratulations. – Jiwon! / – Congratulations! (Park Bogum is mine.) It’s such an honor to be able to end 2016 with all you handsome and lovely people. What a great sight this is. First up is the Ah-Choo couple. Did you expect to win an award? I thought you’d tell us to come onto the stage and do something. Like what? I don’t know, some sort of battle? A battle? Up here? – Like who’s the cutest? / – You called us up here. There are so many famous people up here. I didn’t think we’d win. I heard that compared to other couples you two are really good at being cute. Seyoung knows a thing or two about being cute, doesn’t she? – She does. / – Right? Could you show us an example? – Go on. / – Hold the mic properly. – What should I do? / – Whatever you want. You expected a battle. She looks so resolute, doesn’t she? What should I do? His fans Gosh. In one, two, three. Come on, Honey. – Sorry. / – Isn’t she cute? Wasn’t that cute? I’d say that you have been eliminated. – I felt… / – Nervous? – Yes. I’m so sorry. / – Don’t be. Next up is the Cha La couple. – Hello. / – You said on another show that you’d beat the Song Song couple. They’re right next to you. Why am I standing here? – Let’s switch places. / – It’s fine. Miran, you’re just as pretty. What’s the matter? – Sorry. / – On “Happy Together,” – you said you’d beat them. / – I’d lost my mind. – It’s fine. / – Actually, from the very start, Inpyo said that he wanted nothing but the Best Couple Award. – It was his dream. / – Inpyo’s? – Yes. / – I see. I’m so glad and grateful that we won. Inpyo, what do you want to say? I give all the glory to Miran. I was born in 1967, the year of the sheep. I turned 50 this year. – Winning this / – You don’t look – when I’m 50 / – your age at all. is such a great honor. I learned three things during those 50 years. One. Darkness cannot swallow light. Two. Lies cannot beat the truth. Three. A husband cannot beat his wife. That’s the truth. We see that dynamic a lot with you in your drama. This is the Song-Song couple’s second award so far. Thank you. I saw an article saying your drama should be called “Descendants of the Handsome”. It was on the internet. Do you agree? (Song Hyekyo, Song Joongki) I’d like to consider that a compliment. The Best Couple Award is one that everyone wants to win. Rather than the fact that Hyekyo and I won, I’m more pleased that Miran won. I saw her during the break on the way to the restroom. – She looked so eager / – I know. – to win. / – She wanted it so badly. I think it’s a great relief. Thanks. How do you feel, Hyekyo? It’s your second award. I really wanted to win the Best Couple Award. I’m so pleased that I finally received it, and that I’m on stage sharing the honor with people I admire. Thank you. If I asked you to describe just one of Joongki’s charms, – what would it be? / – The women here probably already know. He’s pretty much how he was in the drama. He’s very witty and smart and has a strong sense of justice. He’s very gentle. – Is he? / – Yes. Joongki, name one of Hyekyo’s charms. Just one? If you can’t say just one, shall we aim for three? One is enough. First of all, every Asian probably know that she is very – beautiful. / – Right. She’s really good at calculating. The other actors and crew know from experience that she’s willing to treat us to a meal. – That’s great. / – It is. Thank you. Inpyo? Could you give us one of Miran’s charm? I was shocked when I heard Joongki’s description of Hyekyo. – Why? / – She’s just like Miran. You’re right. Miran’s just as charming. Miran, what do you think is Inpyo’s charm? – His muscles? / – What? His muscles? – Miran. / – Yes? Inpyo or Joongki, one, two, three. I’ll go with my current husband. – Your current husband? / – Inpyo. Congratulations, Inpyo. Let’s move on to Oh Jiho and Heo Jeoungeun. You two really stand out. There’s a huge difference in height. Why do you think you’re up here? I am up here because we were awarded the Best Couple Award, but Jeoungeun refuses to look at me. She can’t stop staring at Joongki. Do you see the distance between us? – Yes, I do. / – Right? Jeoungeun can’t hide her glee. Is it true that you asked Bogum for an autograph? Bogum or Joongki. – One / – Song Joongki. Poor Bogum. Joongki’s unbeatable. – The look on Bogum’s face… / – I’m disappointed. Could you ask her to pick between me and him? You against Joongki? Are you sure about that? Jeoungeun. Jiho or Joongki. – One… / – Song Joongki. Okay. Thank you. Kim Haneul and Lee Sangyoon from “On the Way to the Airport”. I mean, seriously… I said this about Hyekyo, but you, Haneul, you haven’t changed at all. You’re so beautiful. What do you think was the best scene of your drama? After Dou and Sua decide to break up, they meet by chance at a cafe. There, he briefly holds her hand. – I liked that one. / – That scene? A lot of the scenes looked like they were part of a music video. Sangyoon, which scene did you find most memorable? The same scene that Haneul mentioned. In another part of the drama, Sua describes Dou with some long-winded dialogue. That was a memorable part, too. What’s your favorite girl group? – Stop it. / – I suddenly got curious. – I like them all. / – Do you really? You answered through gritted teeth. Thank you. Jin Goo isn’t here because he isn’t well. You gave us such a great award and he should be here to accept it with me, but unfortunately he has the flu. I promise to pass this on to him. Jin Goo, I won. I mean we won. Bogum, where is Youjung? – Is she sick? / – She’s also not feeling well and she probably feels terrible. I owe this award to her. I’d like to thank the director and the lighting director and filming director for making us look so sweet. – Okay. / – Youjung, get well soon. Bogum, you and Jiwon look nice together standing side-by-side. – Thank you. / – Thank you. I think it would be great if you two work together. – That would be an honor. / – For me, too. Very well. We put together a video clip. It’s called “Survey as I like”. I have prepared the top three kiss scenes. Whose kiss do you think will come out on top? Bogum’s a strong contender and so is Joongki. Very well. Let’s see the best kiss scenes. Play the video. (The Top Three Kisses) (The Top Three Kisses) (Third place, Lee Sangyoon and Kim Haneul) (from “On the Way to the Airport”) More than anything, (Third place) I wanted to go to you. (Kim Jiwon and Jin Goo from “Descendants of the Sun”) Close your eyes. I will do it. (Second place) That bad love. (Park Bogum and Kim Youjung from) (“Love in the Moonlight”) (Which kiss topped the list?) Who are the winners? (First place, Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo) You must want some a lot. (From “Descendants of the Sun”) There is a way. The Song Song couple’s kiss was voted the best one of the year. My favorite was Haneul and Sangyoon’s. It was a serious kiss. I couldn’t believe it was a KBS drama. Sangyoon. Yes? Did you make a lot of mistakes shooting that scene? I was so surprised I almost dropped my mic. We rehearsed the scene many times so there were no mistakes. – You rehearsed the scene? / – Yes. What kind of a reaction is that? What do you mean? Haneul, you were in character and we know it’s acting, but did the severity of the kiss shock or worry you? – I was in character and tried hard. / – Okay. Thank you. The Song Song couple won the first place again. I heard that Joongki made a lot of mistakes during that shoot. Did you? Did I, Hyekyo? He wasn’t as bad as I expected. What did you expect? – So he wasn’t that bad? / – It was more like he wanted to shoot from many different angles which required a lot of work – but there were no mistakes. / – So that was it. It was about the angles. Bogum. When you messed up an on-screen kiss, you said in an interview that it was all your fault. – I was so embarrassed. / – I see. – And I felt sorry for Youjung. / – Okay. How many mistakes did you make? Your ears are red. – I think I made quite a few. / – Kwak Dongyeon. You’re grinning from ear to ear. You look like you know something. Go on. To be honest I don’t really remember, but we filmed from various angles as well. Again, I thank the filming director who made us look great on TV. Director Kim Shihyung and Lee Minwoong I love you. Okay, thank you. I asked you all that for fun. Inpyo and Miran. Did you two not kiss? Why aren’t you even on the list? The two of us didn’t kiss in the drama, but instead we got busy in bed. We slept a lot in the living room. The thing is this is a year-end ceremony that families watch together. – We just sleep. / – Do you just sleep? I get it. This next list is the one in which Miran said she can bet Hyekyo. Let’s watch the top three cute scenes. (The Big Three Cute Scenes) Are you out of gas? My fuel needs to be charged. (Third place, Hyunwoo and Lee Seyoung) Is that it? Fill me up right here. You know how to act cute. I’m fully charged. What’s your blood type? Your ideal type? (Second place, Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo) Keep going. A pretty type. (From “Descendants of the Sun”) Just one more. A doll? I lose. I lose. Which couple will beat the Song Song couple? Are you going to keep me locked up forever? It’s you. You stole my heart. You should be locked up for life. This is unbelievable. You have such high standards. This is so unbelievable. I’ll grill some eel for you. Come home early. Stop talking about eel. Don’t wink. Miran’s charms beat those of Hyekyo’s. I have to say you beat her by a long shot. Thank you. I’m 42 years old. Inpyo, why are you making that expression? Your on-screen wife is saying she’s 42 in a baby voice. – It’s your turn now. / – Well, that wink you just saw was all her. It wasn’t scripted. Was it not? It’s something only people who do it often can do. – So she practices at home? / – Exactly. Can you be cute sometimes? Miran says so. – Me? / – Yes. That’s news to me. When am I cute? – How do you… / – Darling. – I didn’t want to do that. / – Song Ilkook’s face I shouldn’t have done that. I apologize. Thank you. He looks so serious. Hyekyo. Pass her a mic. The part where you called yourself a pretty doll was and still is the talk of the town. Could you look at Joongki and say that part again for us? I know it’s a tough favor to ask. It was so cute. It’s the new year and I’d rather not offend the people watching at home. You won’t be offending anyone. Male fans from all over the world will be watching with thumping hearts. What should I say? Joongki, do you remember any of her cute lines? What’s your blood type? The pretty type? Keep going. A doll? Sorry, I was a bit selfish. You’re so beautiful. Joongki, do you remember if she said anything else? When was she most adorable? Of all the cute things her character said or did… What? – What? / – What? There’s a scene where we were both drinking and I got drunk first. Then Hyekyo gets even drunker. Everyone on set including the crew found her cute then. Was she that adorable? Yes, she was when she pretended to be drunk. Hyekyo, were you drunk when you shot that scene? – How did you… / – Of course I wasn’t drunk. I wanted to get it over and done with. So I tried my best. – Did it come naturally? / – It was early morning. – Was it? / – Yes. Okay, thank you. Show us! Right now? – No. / – She can’t act drunk. Do you remember the lines? I can’t deal with that. I just can’t. I can’t do it. No way. – Okay, then. / – Sorry. You’ve disappointed a lot of people. – Bogum? / – Yes? When did you think Youjung was most adorable? I think she was adorable whenever we worked together. There’s one thing I really wanted to say. She was always great fun to be around and the crew took good care of us and liked us a lot. I think we all worked well together without hurting anyone’s feelings. – I see. / – I wonder if I deserved that. – Okay. / – I’d like to thank the crew again. I love you. You keep thanking people. Very well. They kissed each other and they were cute to each other, but they also moved us as well. Let’s see their most moving scenes. (The Number One Moving Scenes) Geumbi! (Oh Jiho and Heo Jeoungeun from “My Fair Lady 2016”) Let go. Stop and listen to me! Stay with me. Whether you live or die, you stay with me. Okay? Why won’t you answer? Will you live with me or not? Will you? Yes. That was a great scene that brings tears to my eyes even now. Jiho, could you explain what’s happening? I don’t remember. What? I really don’t remember. Then I’ll ask Jeoungeun. We shot it so hurriedly. What’s going on there, Jeoungeun? I don’t know. This is scary. I think we just put a damper on the mood. I’m really sorry. We’re still filming, you see. We have to get back to work tomorrow. My mind suddenly went blank when you asked me that question. – Sorry. / – Okay. Jeoungeun? Do you really not remember? – No. / – Okay. What do you think of when you have to cry? The director said she’s just as good an actor as you, Jiho. – I just… / – What makes you cry? Look at the crowd. I wonder why I’m doing this. What? – You wonder what? / – Why I’m doing this. Why you’re doing this? In “Love in the Moonlight”, – Jeoungeun played my sister. / – She did. She memorizes most of the script and understands it well, so she taught me a few things. – Did she? / – Yes. She’s really… I think she’s smart and has a bright future as an actress. Does she get easily immersed? Yes, she does, and the directors praised her a lot. I see. Thank you. Jeoungeun, hold the mic, please. Do people say you’re a good actor? Other people say so but my mom doesn’t agree. What does she say? That I have a long way to go. Did she? Is that what she said? What was the most hurtful thing that your mom said? – I can’t think of anything. / – Can’t you? She just wants you to improve. Do you understand that? Do you still not remember what that scene was? Okay, too bad. While we were chatting and laughing and having fun the last day of 2016 is coming to an end. In about one minute the first day of 2017 will begin. Couples. What are your wishes for the new year? Keep it short, please. Seyoung, you first. I want our ratings to go up. – Higher ratings. / – Did you mean my wish? I want to improve my acting and appear in another drama, something as good as… – as good as my current one. / – As good as this drama? Okay. Miran? What’s your wish? We’re out of time. Next year, I hope my husband and I get along. – In the drama? / – Yes. I hope the ratings go over 40 percent. Thank you. I’d love to go on asking about your wishes but we have to count down to midnight. We have about 15 seconds left. We’ll start counting down from ten. When there are ten seconds left. – Ten, nine, eight, seven, / – Ten, nine, eight, seven, – six, five, four, / – six, five, four, – three, two, one! / – three, two, one! (Happy New Year!) It’s the first day of 2017. Happy New Year. Happy New Year, everyone. Greet the actors you’re sitting next to. (Happy New Year!) Say hi even if you don’t know the person. Wish them good fortune. We ushered in the new year with the most popular on-screen couples of 2016 which is now last year. Congratulations. Shall we go on with our wishes? Keep them as short as possible. Inpyo said something great earlier. I hope that 2017 is a year where the truth beats all the lies. You wished for Korea where the truth beats all the lies. – Jiho? / – Yes? (Park Bogum, Song Joongki) I wish everyone the best of health. Our drama ends in one week. We have three episodes to go and I hope the ratings hit ten percent before it ends. You wished that the ratings go over ten percent. Jeoungeun, what’s your wish? I want to be in a drama with Uncle Joongki. I can feel how badly you want that all the way from here. Jiho mentioned the ratings but she doesn’t care about that. All she wants is to be in a drama with Joongki. Okay. Thanks. They should be a couple instead. Sangyoon and Haneul, who would like to speak? I hope everyone’s a bit happier than they were last year. Jiwon? I wish everyone a happier year than the last one, and I hope I can appear in another drama soon. Thank you. Bogum, what would you like to say? I hope that 2017 is full of things and events we can be grateful for. I bless you all. That concludes the presentations of the Best Couple Awards. Thank you. (2017 KBS dramas in advance) (Kim Seongryong) (Yoon Hagyeong) (Seo Yul) (Hong Gaeun) (Chief Kim) Every part of Korea is corrupt and everything has a loophole. Isn’t that great? (Master of rip-off, Kim Seongryong) Give me the file or stay here eating one drumstick every two days until you confess. I’ll treat you humanely only after you confess. What kind of a lunatic are you? You scumbag! This is about principles and attitudes. Rules and morals apply even when ripping others off. (Chief Kim is here.) Chief, you’re totally useless. That’s embarrassing. That was so embarrassing. (“Chief Kim” begins on January 25.) We’re still struggling. I wonder how he’s doing now. Should a firefighter rescue an arsonist? Get out of the way! I’ll just quit. – A nude model? / – 10,000 dollars. You can make 10,000 dollars a week. She looking for a male in his late 20s with a burn scar on his back. He can hide his past and pretend to be normal but scars don’t lie. This is definitely him. (Find the real arsonist!) Were you alone with him? By the way… Is there a way to catch him? Arson, theft, assault. He’s a ticking time bomb. (“The Barebacked Firefighter” begins on January 12.) (KBS’ new weekend drama) (“Dad Is Weird”) – Who will go first? / – Dad, of course. He’s the weirdo. I’m Kim Yeongcheol and I play Byun Hansu, the dad. (Clapping like a seal) I’m Kim Haesook and I play his wife, Na Yeongsil. (A proud smile) Why I’m weird, how weird I am, and what my symptoms are should have the viewers sitting at the edge of their seats because the drama’s thrilling, comedic and also very heartwarming. It’s a drama about a family for the family. “Dad Is Weird”. I hope you all watch it. – Thank you. / – Thank you. (“Dad Is Weird”) (Coming in spring of 2017) The stars of “Dad Is Weird”, Kim Yeongcheol and Cho Yeojeong will present the next award. It’s the award for Best Serial Drama. (Best Serial Drama) Hello, I’m Kim Yeongcheol. (Kim Yeongcheol, Cho Yeojeong) I’m so thankful to be able to have such a great time with you all. With us tonight are the senior actors who started their careers at KBS. Thank you so much. Could the cameramen put them on the screen, please? I’m happy you could make it. It’s good to see you all. Hello, I’m Cho Yeojeong. Ten years ago I appeared as his daughter in a drama. I’m truly happy to see him and to start the new year with him. He surprised me today because he looks as dashing and sexy as ever. You’ve been awarded for Excellence in Acting and Top Excellence in Acting. You even won the Grand Award in 2000. I must say, you’ve received all of the most honorable awards. Is there another award you’re coveting? There’s an award I haven’t won yet. It’s the Best Couple Award. All of the nominated couples look so lovely together, so I’d love to win it if opportunity allows. I think the new drama I’m working on at the moment will make my wish come true as Kim Haesook will be my partner. I agree. It’s definitely possible. Yeojeong. I heard that you’re preparing for a new drama, too. Yes. I’m working on a new drama called, “The Perfect Wife”. I’d be amazing if I can be on this stage once again in 2017 with that drama. I hope that your new drama becomes a hit. Make sure to watch “Dad Is Weird”, too. I hope you enjoy it. I will. All right. It’s time to present the award.

(Shim Hyungtak from “Five Enough”) Shim Hyungtak from “Five Enough”. I’m going to take a dump now. – Are you going to watch? / – Gosh. Have you thought about how it’d feel to run into your sister at a place like this? I, Lee Hotae, will start my life over now. You made me change like this. Ahn Jaewook from “Five Enough”. (Ahn Jaewook from “Five Enough”) Don’t get angry for no reason. If you bother Mijeong and my kids, I won’t let it slide. Are you not going to see me from now on? You’re also very important to me. I’m… Lee Donggun from “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop”. (Donggun from “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop”) What kind of a woman are you? Gosh, this is embarrassing. (Inpyo from “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop”) Cha Inpyo from “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop”. I’ll be your woodcutter tonight. Get off of me. I don’t even know where Mr. Lee is now. How can you try to seduce me? You’re seriously unbelievable. (Excellence in Acting Award in Serial Drama) All of the nominees are such outstanding actors, so I have no idea who will win the award. Why am I nervous right now? 2016 KBS Drama Awards. The Excellence in Acting Award for Actors in Serial Drama. (Excellence in Acting Award for Actors in Serial Drama) Congratulations, Ahn Jaewook and Lee Donggun. – Congratulations. / – Congratulations to you both. Through his single daddy role, Lee Sangtae, in “Five Enough”, Ahn Jaewook portrayed the ideal man of our time who can be a responsible husband and a fun dad at the same time, and his performance was highly praised by many people. In “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop”, Lee Donggun is currently playing a perfectionist who gradually changes from a cold-blooded guy to a warm-hearted romantic. His character and acting are widely loved by the viewers. That’s right. They’re two heroes of KBS weekend dramas. Congratulations, Ahn Jaewook and Lee Donggun. All right. Who wants to go first? Do you want to play rock-paper-scissors? – Donggun, you go first. / – Okay. Thank you very much. For the last six months I have been so happy shooting the drama every day. And I even won this award, so I’m truly happy. First, I’d like to thank the pillar and anchor of “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop” who also always makes us laugh, Cha Inpyo. Thank you. I admire you so much. I also want to thank Choi Wonyoung, La Miran, and Jo Yoonhee. Thank you all so much. Yoonhee always helps me out and guides me. I’m inspired by how considerate she is of other actors and crew members on set. She always puts other people first. I’m learning a lot from her. Hyunwoo and Seyoung, you two are receiving so much love these days. I’m very proud of you guys. I’d also like to thank the CEO of FNC Entertainment, Han Seongho, as well as the executive director, Jung Jinhyeok, for encouraging me to choose this drama. In addition, I want to thank the directors, Hwang Inhyeok and Kang Mingyeong, for believing in me. Also I can’t leave out our writer, Ku Hyeonsuk. Thank you for always completing the heart-warming scripts way ahead of time for us for the last six months. “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop” isn’t over yet, and that’s what I’m most happy about. I’ll do my best until the very last scene to portray my character with all of my heart. Thank you. Awesome. Congratulations, Donggun. First of all, thank you very much. I’d like to thank the viewers for their support for “Five Enough”. This is such a big award. I actually remember leaving this ceremony empty-handed once after waiting until the very end. Anyway, I must say that this is such a meaningful New Year’s gift for me. While filming the drama… It was a feature-length drama, so I complained a lot. People called me Grouchy Smurf because of it. I’d like to thank the writer, Jung Hyeonjeong, and the directors, Kim Jeonggyu and Kim Jeonghyeon, for taking such good care of me. I also want to thank Hwang Jiu and everyone else at the production company, A Story, for all of their hard work. I’d like to express my gratitude to them once again. I was worried that the theme of the drama might be perceived as a bit too heavy or difficult. But I think that everyone did such a great job of making the story fun and wholesome. The beloved actress, So Yujin, also helped me stay positive and energized with her happy energy throughout the shoots. It was the first drama she filmed while having to worry about her husband. I’d like to sincerely thank Yujin once again. The drama made me realize the importance of family. With my beloved wife, Hyeonju, and my adorable daughter, Suhyeon, I will start 2017 on a happy note. Thank you, everyone. Congratulations again. You two are the first ones to receive awards in 2017. Congratulations once again. I hope the happy, lucky vibe stays with you for the whole year.

This year, KBS Drama Awards welcomed its 30th anniversary. There must have been many changes since the first award ceremony. What is the most pronounced difference? I will first go over the visible factors. The stage has become fancier. I can’t help but think that my lovely and talented junior actors have worked hard. Back in the days, I think actors didn’t receive much respect. It is thanks to hard work of actors and the production team that both actors and dramas gained status. I am filled with awe. I see. You and I go a long way back. – That’s right. / – I remember the passionate moments in which we played Sejo and Queen Insu in “The King and Queen”.

In “On the Way to the Airport”, Kim Haneul played Choi Sua and painted delicate emotions like a watercolor painting with her gaze and facial expressions. Her performance allowed the audience to become immersed in the story. I think she created the most heartbreaking love story of 2016. The harmony between actors and the cinematography shined in “On the Way to the Airport”. The lead actress, Kim Haneul won Top Excellence in Acting Award. Thank you. Even though I have been an actress for many years, “On the Way to the Airport” was the first KBS drama I have been in. I am honored and grateful to receive a big award for the performance in my first KBS drama. With each passing year, I become more careful in choosing work. I feel a greater sense of responsibility. Choosing to be on “On the Way to the Airport” required a lot of courage from me. I had to gather my courage for the character and the drama which were quite challenging. Thanks to the support of many people, I was able to engage in the shoot with gratitude. I focused my efforts on loving and understanding my character, Choi Sua. “On the Way to the Airport” were filmed in some beautiful and cool places such as Jeju Island and the airport. I would like to thank Director Kim Cheolgyu for portraying Sua beautifully in those locations. I would also like to thank Writer Lee Sukyeon for creating a charming character and beautiful lines. Faces of staff members are passing through my head. Staff members struggled a lot on the set. Thank you so much. Director Nam Gyeongsu who gave me the courage to choose “On the Way to the Airport” and Byeongyu, who made Sua shine, thank you very much. Lastly, I am more grateful for the viewers than ever before for “On the Way to the Airport”. There were many times I felt weary throughout the shoot. The viewers cheered on for Sua and Dou and nicknamed them “The couple that keeps watch”. Their support gave me a lot of energy. That’s why I want to thank the viewers of “On the Way to the Airport” from the bottom of my heart. Happy New Year, viewers. Thank you. Congratulations, Kim Haneul. “On the Way to the Airport” won many awards today. – Park Bogum. / – Yes? – Are you okay? / – Yes, I am. Your eyes are still red.

May I ask you the reason behind it? – I am sure many people are curious. / – He is a senior actor in my agency. I struggled a lot during the shoot of “Love in the Moonlight”. It was difficult to find the balance. He understood what I was going through and offered me words of advice. I am incredibly grateful. – He has helped you in many ways. / – Yes. Are you okay, Song Joongki? You cried tears of happiness as if you have won the award. – Thank you. / – It was a touching sight. It is currently January 1st of 2017. The clock is passing 1:14 a.m. and 22 seconds. This is the live broadcast of KBS Drama Awards and only Grand Prize remains. It is the talent of actors that makes a story believable. In 2016, many actors gave us hope and joy with their talent. Every actor in this studio took part. That’s right. Grand Prize is given to an actor who moved the viewers the most. The winner of Grand Prize, which is the finale of KBS Drama Awards will be announced by President Ko Daeyoung of KBS. And the last year’s winner of Grand Prize, Kim Soohyun. Please welcome them with a round of applause. (Grand Prize) They are President Ko Daeyoung of KBS and the last year’s winner of Grand Prize, Kim Soohyun. Dear viewers, Happy New Year. I am the president of KBS, Ko Daeyeong. Happy New Year. I am Kim Soohyun. A year has passed since I announced you the winner of Grand Prize last year. How have you been for the past year? I kept myself busy with the shoot of a movie called, “Real”, in 2016. I will continue to strive to be a better actor so that I can withstand the weight of Grand Prize. All right. You diligently continue to further your acting skills. Watching the award ceremony made me realize that KBS offers the best dramas these days. Soohyun, you should appear in a KBS drama this year. Given the opportunity, I will meet the viewers through a nice drama. This year… My mistake. 2016 was a year in which KBS dramas shined. That’s right. In 2016, KBS released dramas of various genres including traditional period drama, miniseries, and weekend dramas. “Descendants of the Sun” garnered viewers from Korea as well as other countries and made a record viewer rating of 38 percent. Not only that, there have been “Love in the Moonlight”, “Five Enough”, “Jang Youngsil”, and many other dramas I would like to mention. Since it would take too much time to name all of them, I will end the list here. As the president of KBS, I sincerely thank the viewers of KBS dramas. I would also like to thank the production crew and the cast. Thanks to KBS dramas, I won an award at Asian Television Awards this year. It was a meaningful award for me. KBS promises to air entertaining and touching dramas in 2017 as well. We will focus on creating dramas with a daring and forward format in order to bring novel entertainment to the viewers. We promise to be the national public broadcaster that meets the viewers’ expectations. Last year, I was… It was the first day of 2016. At KBS Drama Awards that aired on the first day of 2016, I promised the viewers that KBS dramas will lead the industry. I promise once again to strive to make KBS dramas the viewers can love. I will cheer you on. Now, let’s meet the honored nominees for Grand Prize of the 30th KBS Drama Awards. (Grand Prize) (Im Dongjin, 1987) This isn’t an award I won on my own.

The winners are Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo. The best couple in Asia, Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo won Grand Award. (Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo) In “Descendants of the Sun”, Song Joongki perfectly portrayed the mischievous and responsible captain, Yoo Sijin and brought about the “Descendants of the Sun” craze. He received a lot of love from fans all over the world. In “Descendants of the Sun”, Song Hyekyo played Kang Moyeon, the surgeon and portrayed a professional woman who is confident and lovely. Her performance engaged the viewers. I asked them difficult questions earlier. The two of them ended up winning Grand Award together. I am relieved. My goodness. That surprised me. – Do you want to go first? / – Sure. Thank you. While the drama was a success, I found many shortcomings in my acting. That’s why I am a bit embarrassed. The shoot concluded around this time of last year. It has been a while since I saw the staff members. I am sure they are working hard at different places. I miss them very much. I thank them for their hard work. It is thanks to the staff that a well-made drama came to be. Directors Yoo Jongseon, Baek Sanghun and Uhm Junseong and Kim Sihyeong, thank you very much. When I first got the offer for “Descendants of the Sun”, I went through a time of many worries. I wondered countless times if I should join the cast. There are people who gave me trust and courage and helped me get into the character of Kang Moyeon. Director Lee Eungbok, Writers Kim Wonseok and Kim Eunsuk, President Seo Usik, and Director Ham Yeonghun, thank you. I was happy to be in the drama. I would also like to thank the Kang Moyeon team who helped me by my side. Hyeongyeong, Miyeon, Hyeyeong, and Jonghun, Doyeon, and Hyeonjeong of UAA, thank you very much. I believe it is thanks to meeting the best partner, Song Joongki that I won this award. If it hadn’t been for him, I wouldn’t be standing here right now. I would like to thank Joongki, Jiwon, and Jin Goo as well as those in Alpha Team and Medical Team. Fans and viewers, thank you very much. I am grateful for my mother, who must be watching this on television. I will continue to give my best performance this year. Thank you. Happy New Year. (Song Joongki is love.) He is crying again. Thank you. Bogum broke the dam of tears. (Song Joongki) I would first like to thank the worldwide viewers and fans of “Descendants of the Sun” and Ki Aile. I was in the army when I received the script. I had just been released from the army, Director Ham Yeonghun gave me his trust. Thank you. (Song Joongki is the best.) (Song Joongki, we will be your wings.) I am filled with thoughts of the staff members. Gyeonghui, Nayeong, Sangmi, Seongjin, the youngest member, and Gihyeon, the stunt double… I am lacking in many ways. I am well-aware that the staff covered up my insufficiency. I thank them from the bottom of my heart. Director Lee Eungbok, I am sorry and grateful. Director Baek Sanghun, thank you. Director Yoo Jongseon, thank you for listening whenever I struggled. I would like to thank Writers Kim Wonseok and Kim Eunsuk as well as assistant writers for making a script that is amazing and exciting. They created a beautiful work out of nothing. I sincerely thank them. It’s too bad that Jin Goo isn’t here today. As the young and lacking male lead, I must have made many mistakes. I was grateful to have him behind my back. Jiwon, you struggled a lot both physically and emotionally. There isn’t much time, right? I am sorry. There was something I wanted to say on a good occasion. Today seems to be the day. There are people I met when I began acting who left favorable impressions on me from the start. They always whipped me into shape, guided me to the right path, and gave me courage. Jeongyong, Bangok, Byeongok, and Daeyeong, who embraces my mistakes, thank you very much. Ayeong, Jiyye, and Munseon, who work on the set, thank you for your hard work. Also, my parents must be watching from Daejeon. I feel like I only say such words to my father on these occasions. Father, I respect and love you. Mother, thank you. I thank the rest of the family. Lastly… Whenever I had a hard time on the set, I cried often and earned myself a nickname of “Crybaby”. Every time that happened, I relied on the senior actress and the partner who is incredibly beautiful and lovely. Every time I cried like a baby… Our roles are reversed. It’s usually the actor who comforts the actress. She helped me a lot on the set. I dedicate all glory to Hyekyo. Thank you. Thank you. Grand Award of KBS Drama Awards went to Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo. I would like to remind everyone of the winners. I believe Song-Song couple’s acceptance speech as well as the friendship between Song Joongki and Park Bogum, who cried for each other’s win will become the talk of the town. Congratulations. Congratulations. The 30th KBS Drama Awards came to an end. It was an honor to join the festive ceremony. We thank the viewers again for giving love and support to KBS dramas in 2016. KBS dramas will continue to present joyful and touching moments in 2017. Dear viewers, – Happy New Year. / – Happy New Year.
