Winners Of The 2021 KBS Entertainment Awards
Moon Se Yoon won the Daesang (Grand Prize) this year for the first time ever in his career. He has been active on several KBS programs this year, including “2 Days & 1 Night Season 4,” “Godfather,” and “Trot Magic.”
In his winning speech, he thanked his family, staff, and various senior and junior colleagues, including Kim Seon Ho, his castmate on “2 Days & 1 Night Season 4,” who stepped down from the show earlier this year following a controversy. Moon Se Yoon said, “This morning, Santa Claus came and went for my kids, but I didn’t know he would give me something as well. People around me often told me that I don’t have luck when it comes to awards, but I was okay as long as I enjoyed good luck with people.”
He continued, “Even as I say this, I wonder if I can continue working with the weight of this award on my shoulders. I prayed last night. I didn’t even want to hear my name called in a dream, but I will overcome this weight and continue working. Last year was my debut at the end-of-year awards, where I received an award for the first time. I was able to receive awards after I’d met the ‘2 Days & 1 Night’ team. At the time, we filmed in advance because of COVID-19, so this is my first time accepting an award in front of so many people. I want to thank all those people whom I wasn’t able to thank in person. Thank you to my agency CEO, Han Sung Ho, and the staff.”
He concluded, “Even though he can’t be with us, I am also grateful to Kim Seon Ho. Thank you to Kim Sook, who helped me a lot in the past. He’s not here right now, but I also once asked Shin Dong Yup the secret to a long career in variety. He said, ‘You don’t have to worry. You’re an undervalued blue chip.’ Because of him, I want to become a senior who shares warm words with undervalued juniors. Thank you to my wife, my daughter, and my son. I want to tell my late father, ‘You can raise a congratulatory glass tonight.'”
