Shin Dong Yeop claimed the Grand Prize of the 2012 KBS Entertainment Awards for his own.

The TV personality won his award at the ceremony held on December 22, while he had been hosting the event with miss A′s Suzy and KBS anchor Lee Ji Ae.

He was nominated among such names as Lee Kyung Kyu of Qualifications of Men, Yoo Jae Suk of Happy Together 3, Lee Su Geun of 1 Night, 2 Days and Win Win and Kim Joon Ho of Gag Concert and Qualifications of Men. KBS, in the end, chose to award the man closest to its viewers.

This year Shin Dong Yeop helped the shows Hello and Immortal Song 2 stand out with his brand of humor. Hello became one of the biggest variety shows of Monday night, and Immortal Song 2 slowly managed to move outside of I Am a Singer′s shadow. Many believed the shows′ such successes were made possible thanks to Shin Dong Yeop′s wit.

What made the award more meaningful were the circumstances Shin Dong Yeop had endured. This is the second Grand Prize Shin Dong Yeop′s won in his career, following his previous win at the 1st KBS Entertainment Awards in 2002 just 10 years ago. He had hit a high point in his career then, but soon fell back into a slump due to his failures as a businessman. The award was given him after many efforts on his part, and was why he treasured the award more than anyone else.

In the meantime Gag Concert won the Viewers′ Best Program Award for two years in a row. The award is given entirely based on a live social network poll that takes place during the ceremony, meaning that the most viewers voted for that program and that it was truly the most loved by viewers.

Producer Seo Soo Min of Gag Concert said, "I′ve come all this way with a program we weren′t sure would make it 13 years ago. This is all thanks to the viewers′ love and the comedians′ efforts. We won′t forget how we felt back then, and continue to come up with new ideas for big laughs."
