Song Seung Heon Knows He Didn’t Deserve His Daesang
Having won a daesang side by side with Kim Myung Min, Song Seung Heon stated that he knows he didn’t deserve such a prestigious award.
Jumping into touchy subjects, MC Kim Gura shared that Song Seung Heon had a hard time after winning a daesang (highest award) at the MBC Drama Awards in 2008 for his role in East of Eden. Song Seung Heon won side by side with Kim Myung Min, causing much controversy.
“Even when I heard about it before the ceremony, I thought, ‘That doesn’t seem right,’” said Song Seung Heon. “But it seemed weird to step up first and reject the award beforehand as well.”
He then added, “Our drama did pretty well in terms of success at the time, but my thoughts from then and now have not changed that it wasn’t an award I should have received. If it was honorable, then it wouldn’t have mattered if it was a joint award, but I don’t think it was time yet.”
Song Seung Heon said he hopes to win one again one day but when he’s confident in his own acting performance.
