“When I first heard that I would be receiving this award, I was extremely happy,” remarked Lee Junho. “On top of all the love I received from viewers, I think it was a moment where I was able to receive praise for having worked hard up until now as an actor from the PDs who enjoyed watching the drama and sent me a lot of love.”
The star also expressed his gratitude to the cast and crew of “The Red Sleeve,” commenting, “I realized a lot of things while filming [the drama], and it was a set where everyone cheered each other on, gave each other strength, praised each other, were considerate of one another, and took care of each other. I think that happy atmosphere on the filming set created a great drama.”
