Yoo Jae Suk Wins Big, Winners from ‘2011 SBS Entertainment Awards’
‘The Nation’s MC’ Yoo Jae Suk was the man of the hour at the 2011 SBS Entertainment Awards on December 30, taking home the Entertainer of the Year Award.
Upon receiving the award, Yoo said, “Thank you. I’m thankful to be able to receive such a big award. I received a big award yesterday as well, and I have a lot of people to thank, including Kyung Kyu hyungnim, whom I respect, Seung Gi, a dongseng whom I love, and Byung Man.
He then went on to thank his family as well as his Running Man cast mates and said, “Even up to the beginning of this year, I couldn’t even dream of [winning] the grand prize. I don’t know how to put my feelings into words.”
Yoo had a few words for Kang Ho Dong as well, saying “I’m hesitant [to say this], but I spoke to [Kang Ho Dong] hyungnim not too long ago. At the end of the conversation, he said to me, ‘Jae Suk, go valiantly.’ Just as hyungnim said, I will run valiantly in 2012. Hyungnim, I want to be with you no matter what.”
