The staff members make a great deal of effort despite the difficulties behind the curtain to create a good drama. I’m grateful to them. I believe that especially the writers who create lovable characters play the most important role. As an actress, when I play in a drama, I see how they gain the viewers’ empathy and make the story pan out. I wonder how they create such unique characters and write such great lines. I’m always impressed by the writers. I’d like to express my respect to all the writers who write drama scripts with all their might in the front line.

Come to think of it, you played a high school girl in “The Best Hit”. – How about you appear / – Why would you say that? in a one-act drama? To appear in a drama, I need an actor to co-star with.

Her excellent performance proved that she is one of the greatest actresses just as she used to be. Please give her a round of applause. – Congratulations. / – Look at them. (One-Act Short Drama Award) Please give your acceptance speech. I came to this ceremony as an award presenter. Filming this one-act drama was so much fun. I felt like I was filming a movie. I hope that the station won’t stop giving full support for one-act dramas. Since it was the debut drama of Director Kang Mingyeong, I was worried I might be a nuisance. However, the drama got high ratings, so I got to eat free meat. It was good. Also, while filming this drama, I learned a lot from this actress called Shin Rina. While performing with her, I couldn’t keep up with her. So I want to thank Rina. I’m still the number one, right, Rina? You must be somewhere else. Hi. Everyone, thank you for your hard work. As I watched the other nominees, I thought many of them deserve this award. I’m sorry that I received the award instead of you. I am very grateful. Thank you. – Congratulations. / – Congratulations.

Let’s welcome them with a round of applause. (Special Achievement Award) Hello. I’m Choi Kanghee. Hello. I’m Lee Donggun. Today, I’m here to introduce a person who maintained a single career path as an actress for 46 years. I’ll introduce her. For me, she was a flower that would never wither. For me as well, she was a special lady I could never forget. For her entire life, she moved and pleased us with her realistic performances. She’s been with KBS drama for more than 31 years. It was 31 years ago, at the KBS Drama Awards in 1987. I still remember her bright smile. (Actress Kim Youngae) Top Excellence in Acting Award goes to “Beginning of Love”, (1987 KBS Drama Awards) Kim Young Ae. Kim Young Ae, congratulations! (At the 1st KBS Drama Awards) (Top Excellence in Acting Award) KBS Drama Awards, Top Excellence in Acting Award for Actress… I don’t know if I’m qualified for this award. On the day when I got the scenario, I thought if I couldn’t do it right, I should quit acting. But, I couldn’t quit though I wasn’t good enough. Thank you very much. Thank you. There are a lot of her works, which are beautiful and moving. Especially, in the history of KBS drama, she left a great legacy. From the role of Empress Myeongseong, she played a role as a warm-hearted mother. She sometimes was merely a lovely lady. She played all kinds of roles across the genres. It seems like her roles were always shiny. Among numerous works, she chose this drama as her best work. It’s “Hwang Jini”. Because of my humble position, do you think my talent is also humble? My dance… My dance is not over yet. I love being an actress. If possible, when I reincarnate, I want to be an actress again. Here, I’ve been working and getting old. It’s great. I’m so comfortable in front of the camera. (The actress, whose acting was everything to her) (The late Kim Youngae) I met her in 2009, at “Goodbye Mom” as mother and daughter in the movie. We went to the bookstore together and read books on the street, too. At a moment, we became close friends. One day, she leaned against the banister, she was singing Baek Zyoung’s “Like Being Hit by a Bullet”. So, I asked, “Mom,” “do you still feel hurt just like the song” “in your age?” She said, “I just got older.” “It’s the same.” She was ageless like an angel. She was a beautiful lady who said that her heart always fluttered as if it was her first time to act. (At “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop”) To me as well, she left a special memory. I did her last work together. It was an honor for me to play a role as her son in her last work. So, I feel sorry about that. After she found out that her days were numbered, she still did the best passionately until the last episode of the drama. When I look back, I still can’t believe it. Perhaps, acting was everything to her. (At “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop”) Slow down. You’ll get an upset stomach. Well, I should just give up and go back to you, Mom. (“If I didn’t do this, I’d have given myself up.”) (“For acting, I forced myself to eat to endure.”) Just eat. (The late Kim Youngae) Eat. She became the eternal star now. The actress, the late Kim Youngae. In the 31st, 2017 KBS Drama Awards, we dedicate this to you, Special Achievement Award. (KBS Drama Awards Special Achievement Award) Many actors and actress are shedding their tears. Lee Minwoo, the late Kim Youngae’s son, will receive it on behalf of her. Wow, all the actors are giving a standing ovation. The late Kim Youngae will see this from above. It’s her son. Please, make a speech. Hello. I’m receiving on behalf of my mother. I’m her son, Lee Minwoo. This time is the third or fourth time to receive an award on behalf of my mother. Whenever I made a speech on behalf of her, I always thanked people who’ve loved her works and supported her. I think I didn’t thank those who had worked with her until her last day. Today, for those who had been with her and for the staffs in her management office, I want to say thank you. Thank you for remembering her and for cherishing her together. Thank you. To all the people, she showed her spirit of acting. To the late Kim Youngae, we give a standing ovation once again. She might be watching us from above.

It’s obvious. Well, now. I hope the couple you’re cheering wins the award, and the ones you wish would win the Grand Award. I hope you succeed your diet. Yes. Thank you.
