Grimae Awards has been established by Korean Television Directors of Photography Association (KTPA – an association for professional cinematography directors in Korea) in 1993. This year the event was held at KBS New Building in Yeouido-dong, Seoul on December 10.
Both Yeon Jung Hoon and Soo Ae received Best Actor and Best Actress awards for their roles in SBS drama ‘Mask’. Overall, ‘Mask’ itself was crowned three awards in total by winning one more award in Top Excellence in Drama Award category. While for the Best New actor award, it was given to actress Jo Bo Ah this year.
In his acceptance speech, Yeon Jung Hoon said he was really honoured to receive such a big award. He conveyed his gratitude towards the photography directors of ‘Mask’, all the actors and the rest of the staffs who worked very hard through thick and thin while filming for the drama. He also thanked his family and promised to work harder to be a much better actor in the future.
While receiving the award on stage, Yeon Jung Hoon was asked if he and wife have a nickname for their unborn baby. He told in smile that they call their baby ‘Bolt’ hoping that the baby will grow to be a healthy and strong energetic baby like the puppy from animation movie ‘Bolt’ itself. He even said affectionately “Bolt-ya, since you come along, daddy even gets to receive an award. Let’s be healthy so we can meet next year!” How sweet… ❤ 😍
The father-to-be was so happy talking about his ‘Bolt’ 😆
