Entertainer Jun Hyun-moo, who was a former KBS announcer, received the best entertainer award at the ‘2017 MBC Entertainment Awards’.
On the 29th, Jun Hyun-moo received the award, winning over Yoo Jae-suk.
For the award, following entertainers were nominated: Yoo Jae-suk, Park Myung-soo, Kim Gu-ra, Kim Seong-joo, Park Na-rae, and Jun Hyun-moo.
During his speech, Jun said, “I wasn’t sure if would receive this award. I kept saying I wanted to receive it as a joke, but I really didn’t know if would happen. I felt thankful just to be nominated like Kim Young-chul and Park Myung-soo last year.”
He continued, “And this year is the first time I am nominated. As many of you know, I am originally from KBS, so it was hard during the past 5 years I have been working at MBC. So I think this award feels like a reward. It feels like a dream that I am getting this award in front of my favorite entertainers.”
Last year’s winner Yoo Jae-suk, who handed the trophy to Jun Hyun-moo said, “I honestly feel like I will be very surprised if I see my name on this card. It is funny that I somehow desire my name to be on the list. (laugh)”
