This year’s 2017 SBS Entertainment Awards was held on December 30 to celebrate the best and brightest of television and radio under SBS.
This year’s Grand Award was given to the four mothers of “My Ugly Duckling,” Kim Gun Mo’s mother Lee Sun Mi, Park Soo Hong’s mother Jin In Sook, Tony Ahn’s mother Lee Ok Jin, and Lee Sang Min’s mother Im Yeo Soon. Ji In Sook stated, “We didn’t know ‘My Ugly Duckling’ would do so well.” Lee Sang Min was there to receive the honor instead of his mother because she was unable to attend the event due to health reasons, and he shed tears as he said, “I’m in a better place in my life where I can finally be a good son to my mother, and it breaks my heart that she falls ill often.” “My Ugly Duckling” was the biggest winner of the night, taking home a total of six awards.
Other notable winners included Wanna One’s Kang Daniel, who took home the Rookie Award for his role in “Master Key,” and Kim Byung Man winning the Producers’ Award for his work in “Law of the Jungle.” “Running Man” was also a big winner with a total of four awards, with Ji Suk Jin winning the Top Excellence Award, the team winning the Global Star Award, Jun So Min winning the Rookie Award, and Lee Kwang Soo and Jun So Min winning the Best Couple Award.
