When receiving the award, through his speech Lee Jun Ho shared about his previous experience, when he received the Men's Best Couple award with actor Nam Goong Min in the drama Good Manager.

Nam Goong Min, who was on the same program, smiled at Lee Jun Ho's speech. Lee Jun Ho also said that the reason they were able to get the Best Couple award was thanks to Lee Se Young who always worked hard, always lightened the mood, and helped him in acting.

The funny thing is, Lee Se Young, who had delivered her victory speech first, immediately remembered that she forgot to thank Lee Jun Ho. Lee Se Young's funny expression when he remembered was caught on camera and made the audience excited.

After Lee Jun Ho finished giving his victory speech, Lee Se Young immediately added, “This is a thank you to Lee Jun Ho. You're the best, Jun Ho."

3. Lee Yi Kyung – KBS Drama Awards 2021

The actor who is famous for being funny in every drama he plays, at the 2021 KBS Drama Awards, won the Best Supporting Actor award for his acting in the drama Royal Secret Agent.

When delivering his victory speech, he admitted that this was the first award he had received after a decade in his career. Since he didn't expect to win the award, he didn't prepare any speeches.

Because he didn't know what to say, he called someone who he called Jagiya (a nickname in Korea, usually used for couples). Many thought that Lee Yi Kyung would call her boyfriend, but after a voice from behind the phone called her mother, suddenly everyone in the KBS building laughed and clapped for her.

"Safe! Mom and dad are very proud of you. All your years of hard work paid off.” His mother said that made Lee Yi Kyung touched. What Lee Yi Kyung did seemed to be the first, the award-winning actor made a phone call during a live broadcast and made the event even more interesting.

Because when delivering a speech, Choi Myung Bin thanked the main character of the drama The King's Affection, Park Eun Bin, by calling Eun Bin Eonnie which means older sister, but calling Rowoon as Samchon which means uncle in Korean.

Suddenly Rowoon was surprised when he was called Samchon and Park Eun Bin laughed teasing his co-star. This made the audience excited with their funny reactions, especially the fact that Rowoon was younger than Park Eun Bin, so he was surprised when he was called uncle.
