Nicknamed “The Nation’s MC,” Yoo Jae Suk has won the grand prize at the recent KBS Entertainment Awards for the first time in nine years.
As he took the stage, Yoo Jae Suk was congratulated by many of his co-workers and friends in the entertainment industry, his arms piled with many bouquets of flowers. Approaching the microphone, Yoo Jae Suk was silent as he checked his emotions, tearing up before speaking.
“I am currently in the show Happy Together 3 and I Am A Man, but I don’t know if I deserve such an award when there are so many other great programs out there,” expressing his thanks to the staff of both KBS shows, “I want to share this happy news with my lovely wife Na Kyung Eun and my son Ji Ho. When ever a program closes curtain because of low viewer ratings and I have to say my farewells to colleagues from such a show, it hurts. Everyone showed me such love this year and I will work harder next year. I will try to achieve higher viewer ratings and more attention.”
Other MCs who were up for the award included Kang Ho Dong for Our Neighborhood Variety Sports, Kim Jun Ho for 1 Night 2 Days, Shin Dong Yup for Immortal Songs, Lee Kyung Kyu for Full House, and Cha Tae Hyun for 1 Night 2 Days.”
