(KBS Hall) (2017 KBS Drama Awards) (KBS Hall, Live broadcasting) The beautiful last night of 2017. The part two of KBS Drama Awards. Let’s enjoy today’s festival with music. I’m a drama jockey, DJ Bbassong. Put your hands up! Spectators, if there’s an actor you support, let’s make some noise! Today’s winners are you. You’re the true winners. You did a great job this year. Two of you, who are today’s MCs with me, will receive an award tonight. If you trust my word, make some noise! Are you enjoying yourself? Great, then I’ll please you more with music. You only live once, so find your own path. Listen to your heart. Way, my way “Fight For My Way”! (BTOB, “Ambiguous” from “Fight For My Way”) (BTOB, “Ambiguous” from “Fight For My Way”) Happy new year! – Thank you. / – Thank you. Okay. Okay. With KBS TV dramas, tonight is more beautiful. This year, many people and I laughed and cried with KBS TV dramas. Ms. Jang Jiyoung, a housewife from Yeongdeungpo, sent her story. “This year was a very special year for me.” “I finally got a son that I love so much.” “Instead” “I’ve been extremely busy.” “The rice cooker beeps,” “so I open the lid thinking it’s done,” “and the rice is just hot, and not cooked.” “I even forget that I just brushed my teeth,” “and I touch my toothbrush to see if it’s wet.” “I was about to weep buckets,” “but” “I watched this drama with my husband,” “who was my middle school classmate,” “and started laughing again.” She says, “Thank you.” I loved watching this drama as well. It’s a fantasy romance drama about real couples, “Go Back Couple”. Sohyang will sing “Wind Song”. (From “Go Back Couple” soundtracks) (“Wind Song” by Sohyang) That was great. Thank you for the wonderful song. All right. The last song of your favorite KBS Dramas is… Do you want a refreshing song that will make your mundane daily life cool like a cold soda? Do you? Everybody, call “Good Manager”. Come on out. Drama Awards. Scream! (From “Good Manager” soundtracks) (“Must Be The Money” by Dindin) Everybody, make some noise. Happy New Year. Thank you, BTOB, Sohayng, and Dindin. The DJ prepared a lot for today. – I got so excited / – Yes. that I almost started dancing. Thanks to Soohong, the atmosphere here is getting heat up. Just like the drama, “Fight For My Way”, Soohong seems to be living his own life, not caring about what others think. – I envy him. / – I agree. What did you think about it, Yuri? He specifically told me to address him as “DJ Bbassong”. Okay. Now, the part two of KBS Drama Awards will begin in earnest. In the part two, the Excellence, Top Excellence, and the Grand Award will be given. Yes. Right now, we have just a few minutes before 12. I hope you’ll welcome the new year with KBS Drama Awards. The first award of the part two is the Best Original Soundtrack Award, given to an artist with a song which was loved by the most in 2017. The presenters of the award are Zhu Yiwen, the CEO of NetEase Music, and Kim Jiwon, who is wildly popular in China as well. Hello, I’m Kim Jiwon. (Zhu Yiwen, Kim Jiwon) Yiwen, why don’t you say hello to the Korean viewers? Hello. Hello. Yiwen is very happy to be here, and says that original soundtracks of Korean dramas are very popular in China as well. I hope Korean music will continue to be popular overseas. This award honors the music that adds even more drama to the show. We’ll announce the winner. Yiwen, please announce the recipient. BTOB from “Fight For My Way”. Congratulations. Congratulations. Congratulations, BTOB. Congratulations. (Best Original Soundtrack Award, BTOB) The award recipients, BTOB, sang the song “Ambiguous” from “Fight For My Way”. It was the most popular original soundtrack of 2017 in Korea as well as China. All right. First of all, our youngest, Sungjae, should be with us but he couldn’t make it. Are you watching this, Sungjae? We won an award. I miss you, Sungjae. Anyway, this award… We were just lucky to be part of a great drama and its music. All we did was just to sing it. Thank you so much. It’s a great honor. We hope to sing more OSTs in the future. In dramas, we’ll be a condiment like salt, pepper, ketchup and what else? Pickled radish? We’ll be such a condiment. To make you enjoy dramas more, we’ll sing more and more soundtracks. We’ll do our best, so please give us your love and support. Cheer up, everyone. I love you all. Happy New Year. – Take care. / – Thank you. – Thank you. / – Congratulations. Congratulations. Now, we have only a few minutes left for 2017. Later, join us for the New Year’s countdown with KBS Drama Awards. By the way, where did Park Soohong go? Park Soohong finally got away from being single. He’ll be with a special partner to give Best Couple Award. Really? Before the year 2017 ends, I hope one more team can receive the Best Couple Award. Park Soohong and his special partner – will be here together. / – Okay. Who is she? – I see. / – It’s Park Kyunglim. So, it’s Park Kyunglim. Hello, everyone. I’m Park Kyunglim. It’s nice to meet you. (Park Soohong, Park Kyunglim) As a viewer who loves TV dramas, I’ve watched, enjoyed, and been impressed with KBS this year. I’m standing here to announce the Best Couple Award, and I’m very honored. I can see how pleased you are from your red carpet-like jacket. I’m wearing it. Some people say that I look like Santa. – I’ll give you a present. / – Okay. Actors, please receive this heart. There’s one thing missing. I’m in the drama awards, and not in entertainment, but why should I award with you, Park Soohong? We’re an old couple. – You don’t like it? / – There’s Park Seojun. And there’s Ko Kyoungpyo smiling at me. Join me next year. – Park Kyunglim, / – Yes? do you want to receive cursed words like me? The Best Couple Award was a hot issue last year. Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo became a real couple, who got the award last year. – That’s right. / – Yes. As well as the Grand Award in KBS Drama Awards, many actors want this Best Couple Award. Many are interested. Who will receive the arrow of Cupid this year? – I’ll announce them now. / – Okay. The fantastic duo from “Witch at Court”, Yoon Hyunmin and Jung Ryeowon. – Congratulations. / – Congratulations. Yoon Hyunmin and Jung Ryeowon. They grabbed both success and love as the prosecutors in the drama. – Congratulations. / – Congratulations. And the next best couple. It’s an honor to award the Best Couple award to this person. They’ve done well acting as a married couple. Son Hojun and Jang Nara from “Go Back Couple”. Congratulations. Son Hojun and Jang Nara. From a college couple to a married couple, they made viewers cry by acting realistically. Congratulations. – They are well matched. / – Yes. I’ll announce one more couple to award. To think of this couple, I can’t help shedding tears. They’re still experiencing tragic love until now. Park Sihoo and Shin Haesun from “My Golden Life”. Congratulations. Park Sihoo and Shin Haesun from “My Golden Life”. They seem like they didn’t expect this. It has a 40 percent viewership. I wonder how their love will end. Please come to the stage. And we’ll announce the next best couple. It’s really… Please come to the stage. If this couple doesn’t get the Best Couple Award, Kyunglim will be so upset. Park Seojun and Kim Jiwon. Congratulations! Park Seojun and Kim Jiwon. They were a pretty couple. – Congratulations! / – Congratulations. All the prominent couples are coming to the stage. – They look gorgeous. / – I agree. I’ll introduce the next couple. They were wild and sweet. They showed a love of the 21st century. Ryu Suyoung and Lee Yuri, congrats. Ryu Suyoung and Lee Yuri… They did an internship for marriage and so on and received lots of support as a cool couple. Congratulations. MC Lee Yuri is also coming to the stage. And now, it’s the last best couple. In fact, I personally love this couple. This couple is excellent. – They are a male couple. / – A male couple. Namkoong Min and Junho from “Good Manager”. They are from “Good Manager”. (Namkoong Min, Junho) Namkoong Min doesn’t look pleased. Namkoong Min and Junho. They showed a partnership between men. KBS Drama Awards, Best Couple Award is given to six couples. Please give them an applause once again. Congratulations. Let’s start awarding them. (KBS Drama Awards, Best Couple Award) Park Kyunglim will award them. First, Jung Ryeowon and Yoon Hyunmin. Congratulations. They look good together. And the next is Son Hojun and Jang Nara. They are best friends. That’s why it’s more meaningful. The next is Park Sihoo and Shin Haesun. “My Golden Life”, with 40 percent viewership, is very successful now. Congratulations. The next is Park Seojun and Kim Jiwon. They showed how a couple could be so pretty. The next is Lee Yuri and Ryu Suyoung. Marriage internship is a word newly coined by them. The next is a male couple, Namkoong Min and Junho. Congratulations. 2017 KBS Drama Awards. They are the six best couples. Please give a round of applause once again. They are the best of best. – That’s right. / – They’re on the stage. Right. It’s something meaningful. In fact, KBS has been playing a role of cupid many times. There were Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo. – Park Kyunglim, / – Yes. didn’t you also meet your husband from a matching program? And the MC was you, Park Soohong. And here I am like this. – I’ll just work hard. / – Okay. As I look at them now, I can sense something. As I got married through KBS, I can sense which couple can be a real one. I should interview them to figure it out. Now, we only have about five minutes to the New Year. For that, we might have to pause the interview to greet the New Year. That’s right. Let’s start the interview. Great. Jung Ryeowon, congratulations. Thank you. I thought this award was only for us. I’m sorry that I reacted too wildly before. Every year, we gave six couples this award. It’s my first time in KBS. So, I must’ve misunderstood. Also, there’s just one trophy. Anyway, thank you so much. In fact, our couple in “Witch at Court” was an issue by the change of sexual roles. Jung Doyoon, who wrote this exciting scenario, all the staffs of “Witch at Court”, and Hyunmin… Didn’t he do a great job? I mean it. Yes. And I want to thank actors from “Witch at Court”, who came here to support us. I’ll give all the honor to Hyunmin. – What a best couple! / – I agree. So, the honor goes to him. The reason behind giving one trophy to the best couple is to make them see each other often, right? That may be right. Soon, it’ll be 2018. They are greeting New Year after a year. It’s like greeting New Year’s together. Who will take this trophy? I want Ryeowon to take this. He’s wonderful. Thank you. And the next person. Finally, I’m so glad to award Jang Nara. Especially, Son Hojun. Should I call you my brother-in-law? (Jang Nara, Son Hojun) Son Hojun, what do you like about Nara? You’re giving too much pressure on him. – Am I? / – Yes. – They look good together. / – That’s true. When did you start to like Jang Nara? It’s kind of embarrassing. Nara has been attentive. We were able to receive this award because even if it wasn’t me, anyone who has the chance of acting with Nara could’ve gotten this award. Jang Nara did very well in acting. You made us laugh and cry. Nara, you weren’t the person I knew. You are not married, so I don’t know how you acted that way. How did you do it? So many people helped me. Within our team, there were directors and staff members who were about the same age as me in the drama, and these staff members had babies. They gave me a lot of advice, and my partner Hojun did a great job. They are giving each other the credit. That’s right. We’re ending off this year with the best couples. At this time, many people are – waiting for the new year. / – That’s right. There are people on site to celebrate the New Year together. We have 1 minute 30 seconds left. It’s past 11:58 p.m. – Is that right? / – Yes. It’s almost the New Year, so let’s contact our on-site reporter. Okay. With New Year’s wishes… – All right. / – Okay. As soon as we connect, there will be a video in the back welcoming the new year. That’s right. What is your new year’s wish, Soohong? – My new year’s wish? / – Yes. My new year’s wish is to meet my partner. Everybody here met their acting partners close to them. – That’s right. / – It might extend further. We have less than one minute left. – That’s right. / – We’ll be welcoming 2018 on stage in KBS Hall, – Soohong. / – That’s right. Min. Min, how do you feel welcoming the new year? – Yes. / – How do you feel? I’m getting a year older, so I’m 41. I’m happy to be welcoming the new year with Junho. All right. We have Suji at L World Tower. There are 25 seconds left. We’ll count down together from 10 seconds. 2017 was full of events. Let’s say farewell to it, and welcome 2018 together. – 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, / – 9, 8, 7, 6, – 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. / – 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Happy New Year! 2018 has come. Please say happy new year to the people next to you. – Happy New Year. / – Please share kind words. Happy New Year. Actors in front of us and on stage, please say New Year’s greetings to our viewers. Shall we? – Happy New Year. / – Happy New Year. (Happy New Year.) I hope everybody’s healthy in 2018, and that all your wishes come true. That’s right. Let’s talk about “My Golden Life”. This drama was loved by many in 2017. – Right. / – They will continue to be loved in 2018. I bet this year is special to both of you. What do you say, Sihoo? Right. First of all, Happy New Year. I’m thankful that we were loved by many and received this award. Haesun, who is next to me, did so well, so we’re receiving this award. Thanks so much, Haesun. There are fireworks going on. – I think this year / – Actually, we… will be even better for both of you. I agree. What rating do you hope to achieve? I think they can reach 50 percent viewership. What do you think? 50 percent? – 50 percent. / – Don’t say that. That’s what they said. We’re satisfied with where we are at now. I hope your wish comes true. Congratulations to Haesun too. Please say a few words, Haesun. I wanted this award the most. Thank you for presenting it to us. We’re actually not a couple yet, so I don’t know if we deserve this award. You confessed to him, but it was hard for you. – Yes. / – That wasn’t long ago. Yes, I did confess a short while ago, but we’re not going out yet, so I think we’re getting this thanks to Sihoo. Thank you. Maybe they’ll start going out now. In 2018, they have to get closer and be more affectionate to each other. – Let’s continue. / – That’s right. The couple from “Fight For My Way”. Congratulations. Last year was about Joongki and Hyekyo, but this year was about Dongman and Aera. – Isn’t that right? / – Thank you. But there are so many great couples up here. We were hopeful to get the award, but I’m happy we’re in the middle. He kept on moving to the center. – Sorry? / – You were moving. Yes. We’re in the center. By the way, Jiwon. Last year, you got the award with Jingoo for “Descendants of the Sun”. This year, you’re a couple with Seojun. This may be a cruel question, but here it is. Seojun or Jingoo. – In one, two, three. / – That’s difficult. – Park Goo? / – “Park Goo”? – Park Goo? / – Park Goo? What are you saying? What is her real answer? Please answer again. Seojun or Jingoo? In one, two, three. It’s Seojun for now. That was difficult, so here’s an easy one. Seojun or Soohong? – Why me? / – Seojun. Yes. I wanted to make you feel better. You’re so mean. – You haven’t changed. / – That’s fine. And now… – That’s not a bad thing. / – Okay. It’s a difficult time. I hope people criticize you instead of me. Let me ask some more questions. In the drama, Yuri and Suyoung were incredible. Yuri suggested getting married for one year. It was an internship. It was a marriage internship. It became a popular concept. If this actually exists, what would you do, Yuri? The internship. Suyoung will answer that question. Sorry? It’s a difficult question. She’s wise. Marriage is sort of like a contract. But in my experience, it’s not a contract. If I get an offer, I would not do it. – I can’t do it. / – Okay. Marriage should not have an internship. – No. / – I see. That’s a wise answer. Thank you. Please say a few words to your wife. It’s the New Year. I’m sorry I’m not there with you. I love you. He’s so sweet. – He is. / – It’s for Hasun. – These people. / – Let’s continue. It’s a male-male couple that deserves this. That’s right. Junho and Min. Congratulations. The chemistry between your characters was amazing. Did you predict this result, Junho? I really wanted to receive this award. I’m happy we got it, but it’s also strange. I’m happy we’re a male-male couple. You’re so handsome. Every time Junho got nominated for an award, Min was getting more nervous. – That’s right. / – He was getting nervous. Is it because Junho is important to you? Yes, I really like Junho as a colleague. He’s a great actor and has a great attitude, so I love him. – You love him, right? / – Yes. So we compiled all the best scenes of you two being affectionate. You can look forward to it. Soohong, who is a lonely guy, picked these scenes. He spent long nights watching KBS dramas and picked each scene. We’re going to watch the best scenes from now on. There were lonely writers as well. I prepared them with the staff members. Which clip should we watch first, Soohong? I might get criticized. These are the scenes I personally like, but please don’t take it the wrong way. Let’s start with the kiss scenes. The best kiss scenes. Top three best kiss scenes I chose. Here it is. (Top 3 Kiss Scenes) Here are the top three kiss scenes. This is third place. (Park Sihoo and Shin Haesun) (“My Golden Life”) Good job. You did well. Thank you. Take care. We shouldn’t see each other again. He said not to see each other again! Never… It’s their first kiss scene. Until now, it’s the first and the last. It’s very sad. The next is the shared third place. I’m ready now. (Yoon Hyunmin, Jung Ryeowon,) (“Witch at Court”) You came into my room at night. And you patted my face. You tried to kiss me, but refrained it, right? – No. / – You did. No. But, she’s passed out. This is the next one. Oh my gosh. They kissed. But, this time… This is the famous kiss stealing by both parties. If you started, you should finish it as well. Hey. Did you just steal a kiss? Yes, they stole a kiss in turn. Let’s watch the second place. (Ryu Suyoung, Lee Yuri, “My Father is Strange”) You still have feelings for me, right? That’s why you’re being such a pervert. You, pervert. I think it’s you who has feelings for me. Do you think you’re so impressive and smart that I have to recall why I dumped you before? After that, I dated a truck-load of men. You stupid pervert. She’s good. Her lines are really hitting the spot. In this action scene, can they really kiss? Park Soohong picked this. Are you drunk? Yes, I am. You’re really sexy. Then why are you just watching me like this? Weren’t they quarreling? This is absolutely my favorite. Other couples envy this. Then! The hoped-for scene hasn’t started yet. They’re not done. They turned off the lights. Just before, you were mad to take revenge on me. The hoped-for first place… (Namkoong Min, Junho, “Good Manager”) – You’re touched. / – You! Namkoong Min and Junho. Boo. What the heck are you doing, you prank? You weirdo, stupid. You’re dead when I go out. I’ll retaliate for how you have behaved to me. Please do. I’m so bored. I’ll wait for you. Stop kissing! – They were the best. / – Congratulations. Namkoong Min and Junho’s smarmy kiss. Namkoong Min, you were very cute. I think Junho was struggling. You’ve won first place. How do you feel to win first place? I’m sorry that I couldn’t hear you. – How do you feel? / – Tell us how you feel. For winning the best kiss scene. First, there are such beautiful and wonderful couples. But, we won the first place. I’m feeling good about it. When we were filming, Namkoong Min led us very well. That’s how we could finish filming pleasantly. – I see. / – I see. I see Namkoong Min did a good job with leading. He seems like he’s quite embarrassed now. It’s the New Year now, Park Soohong. In front of Namkoong Min, – Junho looks very shy. / – I know. Junho has always been receiving from Namkoong Min, right? I mean a kiss. It’s the New Year and you won the best kiss scene. How about Junho giving Namkoong Min a kiss? – Be manly / – Yes. – to celebrate. / – and give him a congratulation kiss. The New Year, 2018 has just started. – Do you really mean it? / – Of course. Are you okay with it? I’m good. It’s okay. Everyone, it’s time to capture it. I’m sorry, I should excuse myself first. In 2018, their partnership will be reinforced than ever. Congratulations. Actually, this kiss scene was not in the script, but I included it. – Really? / – Yes. I feel happy and pleased to get a kiss from Junho. The lips were moist. We also included what wasn’t in the script. – Thank you. / – With care. Anyway, in “Fight For My Way”, I remember that there were many kiss scenes between Park Seojun and Kim Jiwon. – I’ve watched the drama. / – They had the most. Yes, there are a lot. From cute ones to serious ones, they had many kiss scenes. Don’t you feel sorry that yours weren’t on the list? I know. I wondered how I’m watching these here. What did I say? That’s… Can’t you two just agree on this matter? Go ahead. – All right. / – Okay. All the other kiss scenes were beautiful. It was a convincing list of kiss scenes. What she’s saying is theirs were very good, but other kiss scenes were beautiful as well. Including Namkoong Min and Junho’s kiss scene. Great, then. I wonder which scene of “Fight For My Way” is on the ranking list. The best scenes we selected are the best charming scenes. Park Kyunglim, can you start the clip for us? Take a deep breath, everyone. The best charming scenes. Let’s watch them. Let’s go! (KBS Drama Awards, The Best Charming Scenes) I feel so great. I got this so… follow me. Follow me. Go home. Follow you. Duho, you didn’t empty that glass? Is that because there’s no Bottoms-up Song? Don’t do what I’m thinking now. “It’s time for you to bottoms-up.” “You can’t take it back. Don’t take it back.” Aera doesn’t like it. She doesn’t want Dongman to do it. I don’t want you to say such things like you’ll give everything or something like that. My goodness. Dongman is upset. When Aera says something like no more games, I feel upset. I’m upset. (Dongman is upset) (that Aera says no more games.) The next scene. Dongman, I’m holding a knife now. Kim Sungoh looked very mad here. It was the charming scene that called a knife by Park Seojun and Kim Jiwon. Congratulations. It’s the best charming scene. That was the best of all. Give them an applause. In the social networks, Aera’s charm was such a big hit. Here, to the viewers who just started 2018, can I ask for Aera’s charms? To greet them a happy New Year, I ask you to do Aera’s charms. Aera doesn’t like it. I hope you to be happy in 2018. Persistently. Do it persistently. Don’t you want to see – Dongman’s charms? / – With Dongman’s charms? When you see Aera doing charms, you can’t just stand like this, Go Dongman. Park Seojun? Just before, I was going to say I’m glad that we weren’t on the ranking list. But, I’m embarrassed to see ours like that. That’s how life goes. Dongman is upset. I feel upset that I have to show charms in the beginning of the New Year. Thank you. He looks tired. However, did you feel it, Park Soohong? Many couples here were watching it. They might think they are the best in being charming. They want to do it, too. I could see some of them were upset about it. Everyone is avoiding their eyes from me. – They’re not looking. / – But, I already know. I know it. It’s okay. I’m still going to proceed it. Only Namkoong Min is watching us. Only Namkoong Min looked here. No, no. I can’t do this. TQ Weirdo TQ Weirdo, please give a New Year’s greeting. I was really going to do it, but I couldn’t remember the line now. Or else, I would do it. How about just showing your whining? Whining. He just blew his nose. I know someone who can do this the best. – Who is that? / – Jang Nara? Well, Jang Nara is already very cute by just breathing. She’s very cute. Nara, how about showing your charms to the viewers to have a happy New Year? Clear your throat first. Happy New Year. I’m sorry. Have a happy New Year. Happy New Year. That was fast. Let’s not read the comments online. You’re too severe to your best friend, asking such a thing. The best scene I chose this time is a very sad one. While watching KBS dramas, everyone had to shed tears in this best scene. Let’s watch the Best Crying Scene. (KBS Drama Awards, The Best Crying Scene) (Son Hojun, Jang Nara, “Go Back Couple”) It’s “Go Back Couple”. Because of you, my mother passed away without seeing me. I’m very sorry. I’m very sorry, Mother. I’m so sorry. I’m sorry. That was such a mournful scene. I still cry when I watch the scene again. They did such a great acting performance. That’s right. Your crying in the scene made a lot of viewers feel sad. When you performed it, what did you think about? Hojun? Our scriptwriter created such fine stories. And Nara who’s next to me did a great job on this. I really could grab the situation of that scene. That’s how I could cry with her. A good script made him do better acting. That’s what he said so. – Our six best couples / – Yes. made viewers laugh, feel fulfilled and moved this year. It’s the New Year now. I hope to hear their wishes in 2018. – Excellent. / – There are many of you, so how about saying your wish in five letters. Let’s do that. From Jung Ryeowon, tell us your wish for the New Year in five letters. For example, “Get married this year”. That’s your wish, right? Jung Ryeowon? “Grand Award this year”? “Grand Award this year”! From the start, she’s showing – such an ambition. / – Yes, indeed. She’s wonderful. Hyunmin? Should I say a wish for the viewers? It should be your personal wish. “Grand Award for me, too”? “Grand Award for me, too” I like this atmosphere. I hope your wishes come true. Jang Nara? “I want that too”. How many are you aiming the Grand Award? – Everyone wants it. / – Just kidding. They’re so honest. Son Hojun? – “Then” / – “Then give me one, too.” “Then give me one, too.” This is terrible. They look so embarrassed. Is it so hard for you? It can be hard. In five letters, please. – Haesun? / – Yes, please. I think I should continue. You can do something like “My Parents’ Health”. “For me, next year” “For me, next year”? She’s aiming for it in 2019. It’s great. What becomes of those who did before? She showed modesty among ambitions. Park Sihoo? I didn’t hear it. The drama is still going on these days. “A big hit of ‘My Golden Life'”. He said “A big hit of ‘My Golden Life'”. Kim Jiwon? “Everyone, be happy.” I hope everyone to be happy in 2018. “Everyone, be happy” was her wish. Park Seojun? “Everyone be healthy.” I think being healthy is the best. I think it’s becoming like a public campaign ad. Then, Lee Yuri can be very pressured by now. What’s next to happiness and health? “Be happy, this year.” “Be happy, this year”? I think their ideas are running out. Should I say something appropriate? “Don’t get sick.” His wish was “Don’t get sick.” Junho? They did everything. “Be well.” Great, “Be well.” Namkoong Min, you should end this. “Be well.” Yes, “Be well.” – They’re the best couple. / – We should do one too. “I love KBS.” – Okay. / – All right. Me too, I hope KBS – this year… / – In five letters, please. “Meet with me, too.” I really hope so. Once again, give a round of applause to the best couples, who are more promising in 2018. Once again, I want to thank Park Kyunglim, who did this with me. I’ll enjoy watching KBS dramas this year, too. – Thank you. / – Thank you. Congratulations.

I feel sympathy towards the actors who gave their speech. I think of all the staff who worked hard together. Don’t you want an award so you can thank them? No, not at all. My father and my siblings are here. Just looking at my father brings me to tears because he went through a lot. I think of them a lot. What about you Namkoong Min? What about you? We only have two awards left. Honestly, the reason I came here is that many viewers loved the drama, “Good Manager”. Even though I haven’t received an award, I am hoping for the best, but I’ll be fine even if I’m not awarded. You two have worked very hard, so I wish that at least one of you will get nominated for the remaining awards – as your co-host. / – Thank you. The KBS Drama Awards has been going on for over four hours. We’ll continue with Top Excellence in Acting Award. The presenters are last year’s winners of the Top Excellence in Acting Award. Please welcome Park Bogum and Kim Youjung. (The Top Excellence in Acting Award) Hello, I’m Park Bogum. (Park Bogum and Kim Youjung) Hello, I’m Kim Youjung. The year of 2018 has arrived. I hope that your dreams and hopes come true in this grateful year. Happy new year, everyone. Youjung, you have officially become an adult, congratulations. Thank you. I bet that this year is meaningful for you. Yes. You’re right. Since last year, I have been thinking about what I’ll do when I turn 20. I put a lot of thought into it. May I ask you what goals you have as a 20-year-old woman? Above all, in 2018, I want viewers to have a joyful and happy experience. So I will improve my performance in acting through various dramas. I want to travel a lot and gain experience that will help me give happiness to the viewers. I will also cheer for your youth. What about you? Like you, I would like to perform better and return to KBS Drama Awards. – Okay. / – Should we begin? Let’s meet the male nominees for the Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017. The male nominees for the Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017. Kwon Sangwoo from “Queen of Mystery”. Kim Yeongcheol from “My Father is Strange”. Namkoong Min from “Good Manager”. Park Seojun from “Fight For My Way”. Yoo Jitae from “Mad Dog”. Chon Hojin from “My Golden Life”. (The Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017) You have just met our six outstanding nominees. I am getting nervous. Please announce the winner. Yes, I will. The winner for the Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017 is… (The Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017) Congratulations, – Namkoong Min! / – Congratulations! Namkoong Min from “Good Manager” will accept the award. Namkoong Min played a role in “Good Manager” of Kim Sungryong who fights for justice. He was praised for playing his character in his own style and showed outstanding performance as an irreplaceable actor. (Namkoong Min, Top Excellence in Acting) I thank you so much with all my heart. When I first read the book, I wanted to play the role of Kim Sungryong. But he was such a weird character, so I had no idea how to act as him. So I put in a lot of thought. Normally, I would try and make the character become myself. But I had no idea what he was thinking, so I had to become the character myself. I had to guess his every move, it was really hard. In those hardships, Director Lee Jaehoon helped me a lot. Producer Lee Eunjin, Director Choi Yoonseok, Writer Park Jaebeom, and other members of the team are here. Our actors work very hard, not to say that others don’t. When I didn’t know how to act as him, everyone gave me a lot of ideas and helped me through the process. Thank you so much. To be honest, every time I attended this event, I always felt like I came here empty-handed and clapped for other actors and returned home empty-handed. Though, I have started getting awards. When that kept happening, attending the event, clapping for other people, coming home empty-handed to a home where I was alone and just just… I couldn’t sleep. I went to sleep thinking that I should perform better next time. But I felt sad. In every award event, there are people who win awards and many people who don’t. There must be a lot here. So I want to share this award with those people. And someday… Even if you keep on failing, if you keep on dreaming and trying, you will soon achieve your dreams. I have a lot of people to thank. I will keep it short, because there are a lot. I think I should mention those who support me unconditionally. My father, my mother, I love you so much. My brother Yoon, thank you so much. And Deokyoung and Ahreum who support me unconditionally, thank you very much and I love you. And lastly, I’ll mention our CEO. CEO Hwang Bokyong always concerns me and supports me. I thank you so much. I’ll continue to work hard and I will do my best as an actor. Whatever performance I do, I will follow my heart rather than my head, and become an actor who can accept failure. Thank you. Congratulations. Congratulations to Namkoong Min who displayed an outstanding performance. Next, we will continue the female nominees for the Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017. Let’s view the female nominees for the Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017! Here are the female nominees for the Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017. Kim Jiwon from “Fight For My Way”. Kim Hyesook from “My Father is Strange”. Shin Haesun from “My Golden Life”. Lee Yuri from “My Father is Strange”. Jang Nara from “Go Back Couple”. Jung Ryeowon from “Witch at Court”. Choi Kanghee from “Queen of Mystery”. (The Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017) We have the seven nominees. I will also do my best to become an actress like the people on this list. Please announce the winner. Okay. I will announce the winner. I will announce the winner of the Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017. Congratulations, Lee Yuri and Jung Ryeowon. Congratulations. We have two winners! Lee Yuri from “My Father is Strange”. And Jung Ryeowon from “Witch at Court”. Congratulations. Lee Yuri played Byeon Hyeyeong in “My Father is Strange”, showed great performance. She showed various charms and she’s now the peak of her career. And Jung Ryeowon, in her portrayal of the unstoppable prosecutor Ma Yideum, showed an unrivaled portrayal of character, and delivered joy and tears to the viewers and is being recognized for her outstanding performance. (The Top Excellence in Acting Award of 2017.) Hello. I am Jung Ryeowon, who was very happy in 2017 to act as the prosecutor, Ma Yideum. Actually, our drama… Earlier I joked about winning the grand award. But thank you for giving me such a big award. Actually, the drama, “Witch at Court” covered sex crimes, which is a pretty heavy subject. It is common like the cold but the victims are hidden. Through this drama, we hoped that stricter laws would be enacted to punish those who have committed such crimes and give courage to the victims so they can speak out. Honestly, I heard that of all the victims of crimes, sexual crime victims rarely speak up for themselves. That’s because they feel ashamed. I hope our drama gives them comfort. With that goal in mind, our staff members and all the actors worked really hard. I’ll like to thank Scriptwriter Jeong Doyun. Thank you for your trust, Director Kim Younggyun. You were great, Director Ji Byunghyun. And all the other staff members and actors, thank you very much. And my character Yideum has a role model. Thank you for being my role model, Soomin. Danbi, thanks for helping me with the script. Thank you as well, Jieun. And Yeseul, I know you had a hard time too, but thanks for praying for me. Mom, Aunt, and my family. I love you, my church family. Lastly, the Almighty has brought out the strongest in me. Thank you. I give glory to you. – Thank you. / – Congratulations. Next is Yuri. First of all, the Almighty did it. I would like to give glory to the Almighty. I am nothing, and I’m lacking, but many pastors pray for me. The youth group at Hosanna Church, many believers, and my parents, thank you. I’m sorry. Many people always help me. If an actor is not given the opportunity, you can’t act. I’m able to act and not disappear in the middle. Thank you for casting me, directors and scriptwriters. I’m really nothing. I… was never good. Director Lee Jaesang from “My Father is Strange”, Scriptwriter Lee Jeongseon, and my family. It’s called “My Father is Strange”, but my father is not strange. Gosh, for 7 to 8 months, I was so happy to be with them. We were always laughing on set. We were able to film in harmony. There are so many people I want to thank. I think I’ll regret it if I don’t. Cho Junhyun, president of The Jun Entertainment, Director Kim Haseo, and Yeonji, thank you. And, staff members, Jaehee, Sujin, and Myungsun, thank you to you all. Thank you to everybody who gives me the opportunity. I’ll keep trying and do my best to be a good, humble actress. My husband is watching from home. He always prays wholeheartedly for me. He loves me so much, but I’m not good enough. I’ll try to love him more and be better. Thank you so much. Congratulations. Congratulations to both of you. Thank you, Bogum and Youjung. All right. It’s… She’s back. She has to continue as the host. Would you be okay? Great job. It’s actually past 1 a.m. It’s January 1, 1:40 a.m. Many people are here with us in the late hour. Everybody, Min said this earlier. He was so happy he could speak today without being constrained for time. Because there are always people waiting after you. I don’t think I was ever able to speak properly. – That’s right. / – But today, I feel so relieved that I got to speak. And I didn’t get to say this earlier. Lee Joon is serving in the military right now. He’s on his first break today. He must be watching. I’m sad he’s not with us today. He must be happy. In order to live up to your expectations, we gave you plenty of time. We only have one award left. KBS Drama Awards, only the Grand Award is left. The Grand Award. It comes with a lot of responsibility. I think those words contain many meanings. The Grand Award is not only for that actor. It’s given to many people who worked alongside them. This award gives the actor the passion to do the job. It’s the Grand Award. Who will be the recipient? I’m looking forward it. The Grand Award will be the grand finale of 2017 KBS Drama Awards. It’ll be presented by last year’s recipient, Song Joong… Song Joongki. Excuse me. – He’s younger than you. / – Song Joongki. It will be presented by – He’ll understand. / – Song Joongki. I… Please give him a round of applause. Let’s welcome Song Joongki. He was the recipient of 2016 KBS Grand Award. Let’s welcome Song Joongki. Hello, I’m Song Joongki. Nice to meet you.

Happy new year. Thank you. I’m back on the same spot after a year. In front of me are the actors whom I admire, and my colleagues. Looking at them makes me more nervous. Mr. Kim Yeongcheol, how have you been? Hello. You look better than ever. I also watched KBS dramas this year. I especially liked watching “My Father is Strange”. Thank you for your great acting. I admire you greatly. A year ago, I was on this spot and was honored to receive a great prize, the Grand Award. I’m back here as the presenter. I think it was 2.5 to 3 years ago. I received the script for “Descendants of the Sun”, and I can’t forget the chills I felt when I flipped the last page. I was so honored to have acted in a drama called “Descendants of the Sun”. I think I’ll never be able to forget 2017. I’ll remember it as a glorious year. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the staff members of “Descendants of the Sun”, and the viewers again. It’s time to pass on the happiness I felt for the year to the best actor who shone in 2017 in KBS dramas. I think it’s time, so I am very happy. Joongki is about to present the Grand Award. Many viewers – have questions for you. / – Okay. I’ll ask you the questions if it’s all right. There’s a person at home, right? People are wondering how she’s doing and how your marriage life is like. It would have been more meaningful if she joined me today, but unfortunately, she had to be somewhere. So I came on her behalf. She’s doing well. I’ll make sure to deliver this to her. You’re doing something that I haven’t done yet. So I’m quite curious. – Right. / – How is the life? I’ve already mentioned this before. But “Descendants of the Sun” was truly a hit and was the reason why I’m here. But as you’ve mentioned, I’ve found myself a lifetime partner whom I love very much. That’s why 2017 will be a year that – I will never forget. / – Right. I don’t know how I can express the joy. KBS drama connected you two, right? – That’s true. / – Please say something. Thank you, KBS. Thank you. I’m pretty sure that you’re very thankful – for KBS. / – Yes. Now, you will reveal the Grand Award’s winner. First, let us see the past winners.

There is someone I’d like to give this award to. Honey, it took me 34 years to fulfill my promise. It took too long. I am sorry.
