Who Took Home the Grand Prize at the 2011 KBS Entertainment Awards?
And the answer is (drum roll, please)….the entire crew of 1 Night, 2 Days!
Although initially Lee Seung Gi was the only member of the show who was nominated for the Grand Prize, the 2011 KBS Entertainment Awards surprised viewers when all five members received the award as a team.
Lee Seung Gi stated, “When I first heard that I was only nominated I was really worried that I would be a hindrance to my sunbaes (seniors) who have been working hard much longer than I have, but I’m happy that we all received the award.”
Kim Jong Min added, “We’ve all been through a lot,” and Uhm Tae Woong stated, “I was added to the team much later, and I am very lucky to be here.”
Eun Ji Won and Lee Su Geun didn’t forget to thank Kang Ho Dong, who left the show due to tax evasion issues. Eun Ji Won replied, “I want to thank Kang Ho Dong, who greatly influenced this show.” Lee Su Geun added, “I’ll go visit you with this trophy.”
